So Walter is now the richest man in the U.S?

Nice.

That’s a neat twist that has lots of dramatic potential.

The olivia from the other side is also really interesting –yeah she’s an evil beeatch, but she’s still cool isn’t she?

And why was the components of the mega weapon on the wrong side? And why is Peter the key to making it work?

YUP yet another version of Star Wars – this time it’ll literally jump out of the screen.

Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is expected to be released theatrically in 2012. A release date has not yet been determined.

“Getting good results on a stereo conversion is a matter of taking the time and getting it right,” said John Knoll, Visual Effects Supervisor for Industrial Light & Magic. “It takes a critical and artistic eye along with an incredible attention to detail to be successful. It is not something that you can rush if you want to expect good results. For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars experience.”

Smallville Season 10 Ep1 Lazarus – Time for Superman to Suit Up!! September 30, 2010

Smallville Season 10 Episode 1 –Lazarus was a decent way to kick off the final season of Smallville.

Alot revolves around the whole idea of Kal-El finally putting on the costume – leaving the Blur behind and finally becoming superman – this is the season when it MUST happen and this first episode set that tone.

Why is Jor-El such a jerk? We don’t know…but he sure came off that way moreso this episode than before…and the whole Tess with the boy version of Lex thing was a little….weird too.

But hey good entertainment and we’re looking forward to great final season!

Trekkies gone wild?

Not quite…but close. At first, we thought this was a joke ..as it turns out its just a really interesting piece of fan fiction…with its own trailer???

Yup!

A book trailer that is hilarious and extremely well done.

If you want the Night of the Living Trekkies book amazon has got it for less than $10.

Stargate Universe SGU Season 2 – “We Blow A Lot Of Shit Up” September 25, 2010

Season 2 of Stargate Universe/ SGU starts this coming Tuesday and the good folks at SyFy are actively out promoting the show.

ShowMeSciFi.com was on one press call with Ming Na and Lou Diamond Phillips where they talked about their experiences on the show, what its like to be part of Stargate and all kinds of other really lame questions.

There was at least one really great question that was asked – and kinda/sorta answered. The two SGU actors were asked what there favorite Season 2 episode were….

No major spoiler were divulged but Phillips did hint at some massive action to come.

“There is an increased amount of action,” Phillips said. “There is a definite membership out there in fandom that will appreciate the action adventure aspect of some of the episodes coming up– we blow a lot of shit up.”

And here is the actual audio track from the call – where the SGU actors tell us about their fav Season 2 episodes.

Fringe Season 3 premiere – Glatterflug and Walternate September 23, 2010

Glatterflug – daily flights to the moon?

The other side is an amazing place and there are all kinds of little things that make it different – the glatterflug sign – was one such gem.

But having nearly an entire episode just about Olivia on the other side? yeaaah that was actually alright. Olivia is awesome and one of the key reasons why we watch the show..

The other key reason of course is Dr. Bishop – now having him as the serious secretary of state, just doesn’t work…but that’s the point isn’t it?

Walternate – at the alternate universe Walter – what a great name…

The Season 4 premiere of The Big Bang Theory reminded us why we love this show so much.

Sheldon is his full glory –amy and sheldon – shayme

and how about:

The robot hand is stuck on your what?

We’re not sure that the addition of the Amy character really helps the show that much — but we sure do miss having Penny and Leonard’s boyfriend.

not the best episode but one that does advance the plot – such as it is. We see the former owner of Empire Market return to give Chad one key piece of advice — the only way to defeat Clint is to know his strength.

But what is his strength?

The good folks at Disney have made some of their image files from the upcoming Tron Legacy movie available to us – so we’re sharing them with you.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Here’s the official synopsis from Disney on Tron Legacy:

TRON: LEGACY (In Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D)
WALT DISNEY PICTURES
Website: Disney.com/TRON
Like us on Facebook: facebook.com/TRON
Follow us on Twitter: twitter.com/TronLegacy

Genre: Action-Adventure
Rating: TBD
U.S. Release Date: December 17, 2010

Cast: Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde, Bruce Boxleitner, James Frain, Beau Garrett and Michael Sheen
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Producers: Sean Bailey, Jeffrey Silver, Steven Lisberger
Executive Producer: Donald Kushner
Written by: Eddy Kitsis & Adam Horowitz (credit not final)
Based on characters created by: Steven Lisberger and Bonnie MacBird

“TRON: Legacy” is a 3D high-tech adventure set in a digital world that’s unlike anything ever captured on the big screen. Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is haunted by the mysterious disappearance of his father Kevin Flynn (Oscar®- and Golden Globe®-winner Jeff Bridges), a man once known as the world’s leading video-game developer. When Sam investigates a strange signal sent from the old Flynn’s Arcade—a signal that could only come from his father—he finds himself pulled into a digital world where Kevin has been trapped for 20 years. With the help of the fearless warrior Quorra (Olivia Wilde), father and son embark on a life-and-death journey across a visually-stunning cyber universe—a universe created by Kevin himself that has become far more advanced with never-before-imagined vehicles, weapons, landscapes and a ruthless villain who will stop at nothing to prevent their escape. Presented in Disney Digital 3D™ and scored by Grammy® Award-winning electronic music duo Daft Punk, “TRON: Legacy” hits U.S. theaters on Dec. 17, 2010, in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D.

Notes:
• Producer Steven Lisberger co-wrote and directed the original “TRON” (1982).
• Jeff Bridges, winner of both the Oscar® and Golden Globe® for his role in “Crazy Heart,” reprises the role of Kevin Flynn, which he originated in “TRON” (1982).
• Bruce Boxleitner reprises the roles of Alan Bradley and Tron, which he originated in “TRON” (1982).
• Grammy® Award-winning Daft Punk is composing the music for “TRON: Legacy.”
• “TRON: Legacy” forges a new frontier in filmmaking with its avant-garde, cutting-edge technology—set to blow away today’s audiences. Among the film’s firsts: it is the first 3D movie to integrate a fully digital head and body based upon an existing actor, creating the younger version of Jeff Bridges’ character; it’s the first movie to make extensive use of self-illuminated costumes; it’s the first movie to create molded costumes using digital sculpture exclusively, creating molds directly from computer files using CNC (Computer Numerical Cutting) technology; it’s the first 3D movie shot with 35mm lenses and full-35mm chip cameras; and it’s the first movie to record uncompressed HD Video to Hard Drive.
• The world of “TRON: Legacy” has an exciting, pulsing vibe that sets its lifestyle apart from any other on or off the planet. From electric light suits to state-of-the-art hair and makeup, elements of the trend-setting world of “TRON: Legacy” are showing up on fashion runways, and companies such as Hurley, adidas, Oakley and Burton are featuring “TRON”-inspired lines targeted for the young male consumer in collaboration with Disney Consumer Products.

“TRON: Legacy” is a 3D high-tech adventure about a father and son (Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund) who embark on a life-and-death journey of escape across a visually-stunning cyber universe that has become far more advanced and exceedingly dangerous.

Smallville’s Season 10 means its time for us to watch 9 years worth of episodes September 20, 2010

OK, we’ll admit it. We have not seen every episode of all 9 seasons (to date) of Smallville..

But that’s now going to change. You see, the final season – season 10 – of Smallville starts this week, and though we haven’t followed this show from the beginning (usually due to the WB/CW’s weird programming time), we’re now fully hooked.

The teaser trailer for Season 10 – reminded us of how much we’ve missed so, in honor of the final season, we’re going to get all nine seasons and watch ’em all (on rain days, late nights, weekends..). Getting all nine seasons is no small task or expense — though Amazon has some decent pricing that we might be taking advantage of, if we can’t get this cheaper at our local Blockbuster.

Linda Hamilton Debuts on Chuck as Chuck’s Mom September 20, 2010

Yup Scott ‘Captain Archer’ Bakula is Chuck’s dad and Linda ‘Sarah Connor’ Hamilton is Chuck’s mom.

What’s Next? Schwartzenegger is Chuck’s uncle?

All kidding aside, Hamilton is an awesome actress and to see her return to TV is great. She makes her first appearance in the Season 4 premiere tonight of Chuck and we expect that she’ll be a major character the whole season — if not longer.

Star Wars Clone Adventures now Available – for Free! and no don’t bother to pay for it.. September 15, 2010

Star Wars Clone Wars Adventures is now LIve!! But don’t expect an Old Republic type MMO – that’s now what this is about — at least as far as we’ve seen so far.

There is a ‘second life’ type of lobby where users can chat(?), though we’re not sure of the point. Really what Clone Wars Adventures looks and feels like to us at this point is a glorified portal for a whole bunch of reasonably decent games.

Yeaah it’s fun, but MMO in the regular sense – it’s not. But hey we’ll be in there until Old Republic does come out…

Happy Birthday Chekov! (Walter Koenig!) September 14, 2010

Walter Koenig – best know as the actor behind Pavel Chekov in Star Trek and Alfred Bester in Babylon 5 turns 74 years old today.

Happy Birthday!!!

To us, we’ll always remember a few key ‘Chekov’ moments. Yes there were some brilliant moments in the classic Star Trek

But for better (or not) there is of course  the ‘nuclear wessels’ line – which I don’t think that Koenig will ever live down..

And for the classic fans …here’s a great collection of Chekov’s Russian ‘isms..

One more reason to be excited for the return of ABC’s new V series.
Diana – the original commander from the original V series/miniseries is coming back!

Jane Badler told TV Guide that,'” .. this is an entirely different take on Diana — reimagined as the wicked mother of Anna (Morena Baccarin).”

Nice.

If you want to revisit the original Diana …enjoy the clip of Diana at her finest..

Yes we’re real excited for the start of the 1.5 season of Caprica in a few weeks. Syfy now has a few teaser trailers up …this one is our fav.

We all know where this is headed – Cylons becoming sentient and attacking humans..but it’ll be interesting to see how this all gets pulled back with the original cylons – the final five – from Battlestar Galactica.

Star Wars Clone Wars Animated Season 3 Kicks off this week September 13, 2010

Hard to believe that Star Wars Clone Wars has been on the air for over two years now…but it’s True!

Season Three starts this week!  It seems like just yesterday we paid to see the pilot movie in the theater too… (BTW, Amazon has decent pricing on Season 2 and Season 1 if you need to catch up)

Clone Wars Animated has been an awesome series so far, giving us a different viewpoint on Anakin Skywalker and introducing us to worlds that we’ve never seen before (but read about).

And of course, how can we talk about Clone Wars without mentioning Ashoka Tano?

With Ashoka we have perhaps the brightest new character addition to the Star Wars universe outside of the 6 movies.

We’ve also gotten a more personal view of the clones with Captain Rex and crew.

For Season three it looks like we might see the end of Asaj Ventress and the return of a creature that looks a whole lot like Darth Maul!!! We can hardly wait…

Stephen King The Dark Tower headed to big and little screens September 9, 2010

It looks like at long last, Stephen King’s The Dark Tower saga is going to get  dramatic treatment.

How the frak the massive canon that is Dark Tower will be delivered on screen is beyond our small brains. Apparently there will be at least three movies and also a TV series to help fill in the blanks.

In our view, trying to capture the brilliance that is Dark Tower on screen will be an impossible task.

Then again, we’ve been big fans of Marvel’s Dark Tower comic book prequel…so is Universal Pictures could start there, we’d be pretty stoked.

Caprica Returns October 5th for Season 1.5! Earlier than originally planned! September 9, 2010

Syfy – may the gods bless you!

SO SAY WE ALL!!

Syfy has moved the return of Caprica up from January to October!!

That’s right, we won’t have to wait until 2011 for our Caprica fix.

“Though we initially announced the January return of Caprica, we still had hopes of finding a way to get the series back on the air sooner,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions in a statement. “We’ve been able to successfully re-work our schedule, and are thrilled to bring the show back during what is traditionally Syfy’s most-watched time of the year. The outcome should also please fans who expressed their wishes for a shorter mid-season hiatus.”

Remember how season 1.0 ended…we’ve got a cliffhanger with the Cylon get blown up, Daniel losing his military contract, his wife killing herself……lots to look forward to in October!!

The other great thing is that Caprica will now be on the same night as Stargate Universe, with one show following the other.

So starting in October, Tues is now SYFY night for us!
