Mega-Galaxy Doesn't Play Well With Others

NGC 1132 is a "lone wolf" galaxy, far from other galactic clusters, says NASA. Was it always a loner, scorning the company of its galactic peers for the rough-and-tumble life in the far reaches of intergalactic space? Or is it actually a group of galaxies that joined forces, banding together to survive a lonesome… » 2/05/08 4:00pm 2/05/08 4:00pm

Smother Mothers Are Scarier Than Evil Cyborgs

Sarah Connor needs to stop strangling John with her apron strings, according to last night's Sarah Connor Chronicles. After all, the world ends in just four years, and weedy Thomas Dekker has to morph into Christian Bale by then. Never mind that Sarah's still the show's real bad-ass, as seen in this clip. Don't call… » 2/05/08 1:35pm 2/05/08 1:35pm

The Breakfast Club Meets Mad Max... On Skates!

Corey Haim is initiated into the Rollerboys, a fascist street gang that skates down the street with synchronized arm movements, in this clip from Prayer Of The Rollerboys. Which may be the weirdest dystopian movie ever. America is collapsing, Harvard is moving to Asia, and street gangs like the Rollerboys hold all… » 2/05/08 12:00pm 2/05/08 12:00pm

Who Would Be The Most Science Fictional President?

It's Super Tuesday! No, that doesn't mean you're going to get bathed in cosmic radiation and gain super-strength and diamond skin. (At least, not necessarily.) Rather, if you live in one of a bunch of states, you'll be choosing your party's presidential candidate. When you make that momentous choice, the most… » 2/05/08 11:20am 2/05/08 11:20am

One of the freighter people thinks Jack is handsome in this week's Lost episode. Not only that, but we get some more hints about what they're really up to on the island, and glimpse the inventory they brought with them. And Locke acts like a loon again.

What's The Most Overrated Recent TV Show?

To hear people talk, we're living in a golden age for science fiction on television. The genre has never been so arty and grown-up, with real actors and stuff. Silver lame' jumpsuits are confined to American Apparel where they belong. But maybe some recent shows are just coasting unfairly on this wave of critical… » 2/04/08 2:30pm 2/04/08 2:30pm

Animal-Cyborg Soccer Slaves Of 2178

This new ad for Puma's v1.08 soccer boot freaks me out. In the year 2178, soccer players will have their legs ripped off and replaced with weird cyber-horse legs, so they can trot around and do kangaroo jumps for the amusement of their beer-swilling orthohuman masters. Until then, the ad says, the closest you can get… » 2/04/08 12:00pm 2/04/08 12:00pm

More Jive-Dancing Action With Spider-Man's Funky Parasite

Venom, the alien creature that latched on to Peter Parker in Spider-Man 3, will get his own solo movie. No word yet whether Topher Grace will be back as Eddie Brock, the guy who replaced Peter as the monster's host. Not to mention whether there'll be more alien-induced dancing and piano playing. But Marvel, which made… » 2/04/08 10:40am 2/04/08 10:40am

What's The Most Underrated TV Show?

Are people always dissing your fave TV show? Do they not understand why Torchwood is the greatest exploration of glory holes in the fabric of space-time since Quantum Leap?

The Fantastic Four Movie Marvel Doesn't Want You To See

Here's the action-packed climax of Roger Corman's Fantastic Four, which Marvel reportedly paid millions to suppress. In this version, Reed Richards' main superpower is the ability to telegraph his punches worse than Tom Selleck. And the Thing's greatest gift is the ability to move as though he were in a full-body… » 2/01/08 11:23am 2/01/08 11:23am
