Trailer for M. Knight Shyamalan’s After Earth starring Will and Jaden Smith arrives

After The Last Airbender debacle, I wanted nothing to do with M. Knight, actually after Lady in the Chlorinated Pool, I wanted nothing to do with M. Knight. Then he did The Happening, after which I seriously considered paying someone to walk up to him on the street and punch him in the face, butContinue reading “Trailer for M.

Archaia Entertainment gives the 70’s science fiction series Space:1999 a respectable graphic

I was only two years old when the pilot episode of Space:1999 aired back in 1975, so I don’t remember much. However, if I were to ask my dad, an avid sci-fi buff and proud Trekkie, about the show, I bet he could talk in length about the premise and its complexities and lastly, whyContinue reading “Archaia Entertainment gives the 70’s science fiction series Space:1999 a respectable graphic”

MITNG reviews Nowhere Men Issue #1 by Eric Stephenson

The first issue of Image’s new release, Nowhere Men, seems to be the perfect teaser for a promising series.  Written by Eric Stephenson and with art by Nate Bellegarde and Jordie Bellaire, this first glimpse will leave you with dozens of deliciously unanswered questions. The story thus far seems to focus on a band of fourContinue reading “MITNG reviews Nowhere Men Issue #1 by Eric Stephenson”

Trailer for DARK SKIES seems like a perfect blend of science fiction and horror

Okay…I’m not going to say much, cause I don’t want to jinx it, but this new trailer for Dark Skies (not to be confused with the NBC series) starring Keri Russell (Felicity) ,Josh Hamilton (J.Edgar) and directed by Scott Charles Stewart (LEGION) “appears” to be a fresh take on the whole alien invasion genre. Synopsis: “DarkContinue reading “Trailer for DARK SKIES seems like a perfect blend of science fiction and horror”

The fantastic Steampunk world of illustrator Brian Kesinger

I like to attribute my fascination with Steampunk with my love for reading, in particular the works of author Philip Reeve (Mortal Engines) but, until now, there really wasn’t a name for the type of Victorian science fiction I had come to love. I guess it was just regular-ass “science fiction”, but I, as withContinue reading “The fantastic Steampunk world of illustrator Brian Kesinger”

Science fiction short SEED is a beautiful anomaly

Ambiguity is the key in this one. SEED is a science fiction short directed by Tyson Wade Johnston. It’s cryptic in it’s delivery, but leaves plenty of room for more…”answers” that is. In the same vein as such films like Solaris and Moon this one revels in it’s isolation. Pitting man against nature on aContinue reading “Science fiction short SEED is a beautiful anomaly”

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.  The public backlash towards the gruesome images, however, spooked the Topps corporation, inducing them to pull theContinue reading “The Fantastic Nostalgia of: Mars Attacks – 50th Anniversary Collection”

Science fiction short Tears of Steel will cinematically blow your mind!

In what acts more like a cgi animators demo reel than a film Tears Of Steel is a dysotopian story of regret and redemption at least I think that’s what the director was trying to get across. Before I continue I want to say that this film is a text book case of animators whoContinue reading “Science fiction short Tears of Steel will cinematically blow your mind!”

Name That Soundtrack: Science Fiction up’s the ante

It was about a month ago we challenged you, our readers, to guess the name, composer and titles of ten science fiction film/tv soundtracks. The response was less than desirable and most of us at MITNG had begun questioning our approach. We began blaming ourselves and saying maybe if we had toasted the bread betterContinue reading “Name That Soundtrack: Science Fiction up’s the ante”

Jeffrey Morris’ Daedalus Series: Changing the culture of science fiction

Writer, artist, and creator of FutureDude.com, Jeffrey Morris has developed something I believe to be truly unique in the graphic novel and science fiction industry.  Instead of exhibiting a world sometimes unreachable in our dreams of future space exploration, Mr. Morris has teamed up with not only top-notch illustrators and writers, but, also scientists and engineers toContinue reading “Jeffrey Morris’ Daedalus Series: Changing the culture of science fiction”
