Why You Need To See ‘Harbinger Down’

Alec Gillis and Tom Woodruff, of Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. (ADI) aren’t names that most people are familiar with, though if you have seen Alien, Predator, The Thing (2011), Monster Squad, Mortal Combat, The Fly, The Fly II among many, many others, then you are more familiar with their work than you think. Despite such a pedigree, the film industry have […]

‘The Den’ Review

“”The Den,” The Debut Film From Zachary Donahue, Is A Startlingly Effective Thriller” When I first heard about Zachary Donahue‘s thriller, “The Den” I the first thing that popped into my mind was the place where an animal lives. And in sense, I was right though on the face of it the movie revolves around Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia), […]

iOS 6 Available For Download

I downloaded iOS 6 for my iPad 2 a few hours ago, and am in the process of doing the same for my iPad touch (Yeah, I am just a bit invested in the Apple ecosystem, known to some as a “walled garden”). One of the first things that I noticed was that, at least […]

Dreams of Flight Deferred

Marvel’s Angel, is probably one of the most underrated superheroes there are (of course, I am not referring to Archangel.  That guy is absolutely lethal) besides DC’s Aquaman–who’s really lame, by the way.  His only ability is that of flight–which was probably obvious, considering those huge wings. Flight is a weak ability, till you consider […]

Space 2099 Concept Designs

Here are a few concept pics, courtesy of io9, of the upcoming series Space 2099.  Being concept pics, they work only as an introduction to what the re-imagining of the series will be like, yet even a relatively limited capacity as that they offer a glimpse into what Jace Hall, the producer of the upcoming […]

Why is Yahoo Creating Original Programming?

I understand why Netflix is moving toward original programming, though I am not quite sure why Yahoo would want to.  That being said, they are working with Tom Hanks to produce “Electric City,” a 90-minute sci-fi series. From the article on Deadline it appears that the purpose is to drive viewers to other aspects of […]

Real-Life ‘Batman’ In Flight

Here’s footage of Jeb Corliss, a BASE (buildings, antennas, spans & earth) jumper, wearing a wingsuit and “flying” though a hole in a mountain in China.  I emphasize the word flying because the suit he’s wearing, while generating lift as a result of a relatively large surface and air pressure (similar in principal to the […]

Starz Will Stop Supplying Movies To Netflix

According to Nikki Finke’s Deadline, Starz will not longer provide content to Netflix when the current arrangement expires toward the end of February of next year. This can be nothing but terrible news for Netflix management because Starz provides a significant amount of content, particularly movies, though there are TV shows as well. Viewers too […]

Batmobile For Sale

A few weeks ago, I wrote a piece about a motorcycle modeled on the lightcycles from Tron: Legacy.  And while that’s a cool vehicle, it doesn’t quite have the cache as the Batmobile. Now, I am not talking about “the Tumbler” from Christopher Nolan’s run on the Batman saga because it’s too big, too brawny […]
