Alien visitation has seen many manifestations in Hollywood. I myself, am a huge fan of the 1984 film “The Brother From Another Planet” starring Joe Morton, but there’s been a slew of them in the last century. It just never gets old, especially when it’s a sexy alien femme-fetale, who lures dumb human men inContinue reading “Checkout this Kubrick-esque trailer for Under the Skin starring Scarlett Johansson”

The Fantastic Nostalgia of: Mars Attacks – 50th Anniversary Collection
In 1962, Topps introduced a limited run of science fiction trading cards, packed with a thin slice of powdery bubble gum, to a limited public entitled, Mars Attacks. Violent, gory and filling the need for a trading card representation in the growing sci-fi community, Mars Attacks sold well.

DAMON LINDELOF TALKS IN DEPTH ABOUT THE ENDING OF LOST…
Damon Lindelof sold me on LOST. Him and Carlton Cuse‘s writing were a power house and had me tuning in every week. I even bought the first four seasons on dvd. I never buy season dvd’s. They were the first. Game, set, match I “was” a fan and then toward the end I fell shortContinue reading “DAMON LINDELOF TALKS IN DEPTH ABOUT THE ENDING OF LOST…”

ALIEN was released in 1979 and now 33 years later Ridley Scott is returning to the franchise in PROMETHEUS set to release June 8th of 2012.

SECOND TRAILER FOR RIDLEY SCOTT”S “PROMETHEUS” CONTINUES TO BLOW MINDS
Good lord. When Ridley decided to return to science fiction I remember thinking that he was going to go all old school and keep a lot of the feel of the first (meaning not so much cgi), but seeing this new trailer I realize he’s doing the opposite. Listen, what I’m saying is he’s managedContinue reading “SECOND TRAILER FOR RIDLEY SCOTT”S “PROMETHEUS” CONTINUES TO BLOW MINDS”
