Do we want to see an old Han Solo in the new Star Wars films?

What is the consensus on bringing back characters into the new Star Wars films?  I vote no.  I don’t want to see an old arse of a Han Solo attempting to swagger around in the new Disney releases.  I have never read the books concerning the George Lucas created universe, so, I don’t know whatContinue reading “Do we want to see an old Han Solo in the new Star Wars films?”

MITNG reviews Dragon Age Volume Two: Those Who Speak

Dragon Age is pure fun! What’s not to like about it—magic, great art, epic battles, magical critters and characters and environments that are drawn exquisitely. I’ve never played the game this story is apparently based on, but you don’t really have to to get into this series. Dragon Age: Those Who Speak, written by David Gaider and Alexander Freed (Star Wars) and illustrated byContinue reading “MITNG reviews Dragon Age Volume Two: Those Who Speak”

A Very Merry Sci-fi Christmas: Drinks, a variety show, and…square dancing?

On Friday night, Nerd Nite Phoenix and Dr. Diabolic teamed up to put on a holiday event for all the Star Wars fans in the valley. As was promised, the event included photo opportunities with Darth Santa and his Mandalorian Merc elves (with a bonus Stormtrooper thrown into the mix!), a fun yet educational presentationContinue reading “A Very Merry Sci-fi Christmas: Drinks, a variety show, and…square dancing?”

MITNG reviews City In The Desert Vol#1 written and illustrated by Moro Rogers

In a world, where a pact between man and G-d has been broken, monsters are set upon humankind as punishment. In the midst of this chaos dwells a seemingly unscrupulous killer and his female, half animal, half human assistant, whom both have made a decent a living contract killing those beast who’ve become a bitContinue reading “MITNG reviews City In The Desert Vol#1 written and illustrated by Moro Rogers”

Ever wanted a full scale Millennium Falcon in your backyard? Well, these guys are doing it.

Chris Lee has a quest.  Most people may think he’s nuts.  But, that’s what they thought of Noah, too, when he built his ark.  To those that read this blog, however, Chris’ project probably seems like a much more worthwhile endeavor.  He wants to build the ultimate Star Wars prop,  a 1:1 scale ESB/ANH hybridContinue reading “Ever wanted a full scale Millennium Falcon in your backyard?

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”

Hot Toys opens flagship store, Toy Sapiens, in Tokyo and prepares to blow collectors minds

Admittedly, I have not collected toys or action figures in many a year.  Not because I didn’t have appreciation for the hobby, but, due to the desire to spend my wages on other pursuits.  This habit of denying myself these geeked treasures may have to change now that I have discovered Hot Toys.  After spendingContinue reading “Hot Toys opens flagship store, Toy Sapiens, in Tokyo and prepares to blow collectors minds”

THE MOVIE “ALIEN MAKERS” IS CHOCK FULL OF INTERVIEWS WITH PEOPLE WHO WERE INVOLVED IN THE ORIGINAL FILM.

  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. I have high hopes for this new film, but nothing will ever come close to the visceral realness of the original. Pure collective imagination went into the creationContinue reading “THE MOVIE “ALIEN MAKERS” IS CHOCK FULL OF INTERVIEWS WITH PEOPLE WHO WERE INVOLVED IN THE ORIGINAL FILM.”
