1995’s 12 Monkeys is one of the coolest science fiction flicks to ever come out of Hollywood.  Bruce Willis was perfect as James Cole, a prisoner in the future that is sent back in time in order to stop a catastrophic event perpetrated by a group that call themselves the Army of the 12 Monkeys.  Thanks to them, a virus is released that kills almost everyone on the planet and drives the survivors underground.  Brad Pitt put in one of the best performances of his career as Jeffrey Goines, a mental patient that Cole meets who has a big connection to the 12 Monkeys.  The movie is now set for the reboot treatment and will be given a new Syfy series to tell the tale.  The newest trailer has now been released and it may have some fans pretty excited for things to come.

We Take Bribes! Extended ‘Age Of Ultron’ Trailer A Win For ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

- 10-30-14TV Posted by Aspry Jones

WINNING

The first half of ‘Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ season one was crap. It was like watching paint dry with the hopes that the dried paint would be awesome. Then ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ happened. It changed the entire game for our spy friends, making them pariahs on the lam. Being hunted by Hydra was the fresh injection the show so desperately needed to stay above water. Still riding that storyline through season 2, the show has no movie plot to adjust its course. But AOS wasn’t out of marketing ideas just yet ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ is still several months away, but that didn’t stop ‘Agents’ from using the film’s hype to entice more viewers. And we totally fell for it. (more…)

The Cast Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ Is Killing & Having Sex All The Way To The Bank

more fun times

I feel bad for anyone who isn’t a die hard fan of HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones.’ The last two seasons have been so beautifully scripted, so wonderfully acted, that it’s a real pain having to wait a year for the show’s return. That’s the one thing I’d change about the series – the mammoth waits for new seasons. But it’s proven itself worth the wait lately, what with all its Emmy Awards from Qarth to the Moon Door. It’s an incredible series that’s hitting all the right notes, but don’t take my word for it – ask the cast how awesome their show is. I’m sure with the huge pay upgrades they just received, they’ll have nothing but nice things to say about their jobs. (more…)

Tune In to the ‘Star Wars’ Halloween Special… On ESPN2?

Some of us have experienced the horror that is the 1978 Star Wars Christmas Special. Steeped in the idea that no one but small children and people with mental disabilities watched Star Wars, Lucas and Co. created a Rifftrax-worthy piece of rubbish that featured everything from new age music to Wookies in aprons making “Christmas” dinner. Suffice to say, it’s painful to watch whether you’re a fan of the franchise or otherwise. Now, we’re getting a Halloween Special. And this one will be… sports themed. (more…)

TV REVIEW: ‘Arrow’ S3,E4 – “The Magician”

And you thought Captain Cold appearing on The Flash last night was a huge deal. Tonight’s Arrow follows up last week’s adventure in Corto Matese, and while that one was notable for bringing Thea back into the fold, this week’s entry, “The Magician,” is notable for so much, much more. From important returns, to important reunions to important introductions, if you missed this week’s episode of Arrow (like Felicity, who was too busy teaching team work and smooching in Central City this week), then you picked a less than ideal time to drop out for the week. “The Magician” seems to set up this season’s battle lines, or to put it another way, the show is courting war.

My god, what a great time to be a geek!  Between Marvel and DC, comic book adaptations that many of us have been waiting for since we were children are finally being made reality, and considering DC’s recently released slate of upcoming movies and the epic Marvel announcements yesterday, things don’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.  Hot on the heels of their announcements and the release of their bonus clip from Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Marvel  (no doubt feeling drunk with power and fandom glory), has released the first teaser for their newest television series, Agent Carter.  If the teaser is a true preview of things to come, oh man, sign me up!

Ready to Scream Like It’s 1996? MTV’s ‘Scream’ Series Is Finally Coming Soon!

Back in the 90’s, slasher flicks came back in a big way and the Kevin Williamson/Wes Craven masterpiece of fun, Scream, paved the way for the return of the genre.  The movie was brilliant in that it was almost a poke in the eye to the genre while also becoming one of the best slasher films in years.  As with anything in Hollywood, the movie generated sequels that could never quite live up to the original, though they were all fun in their own right.  In 2012, MTV ordered a pilot for a small screen adaptation of the highly successful horror staple but there has been very little talk about the project since.  Now, 2 years after the initial order, it appears that the Scream television series is finally making some headway and it has been announced that fans will finally see what the series will give them when it debuts in the Fall of 2015.

SyFy Exec Admits They Blew It with Stupid Name Change and Less Sci-Fi

- 10-29-14TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Hey, remember when Syfy showed science fiction? How many times have you heard that question asked amongst the nerderati or amongst your circle of nerdish friends? See, there was once this time that the Sci-Fi channel, later rebranded SyFy in a much maligned and mocked marketing campaign, but the somewhat radical respelling of “sci-fi” came with a shift to do less compelling and original programming, and do more cheap reality shows and ridiculously over-the-top “original” movies like Sharknado, Dinocroc Vs Supergator, et al. In a surprising and interesting new interview, one SyFy exec is saying that the channel screwed the pooch when it comes to their programming the last few years, and at a time when genre TV has been booming on other network to boot.

lovecraft kickstarter

A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to meet Craig Engler, co-creator of SyFy‘s Z Nation. If you haven’t checked out Z Nation yet, you should. The mixture of, “Horror, Humor, and Heart” in Z Nation, as described by Engler’s creative Z Nation partner Karl Schaefer, is a hell of a lot of fun to watch. Now that Z Nation has gotten the green light for a second season, Engler is turning his attention to another of his interests, a comic book Kickstarter that takes a deeper look at H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos, Lovecraft: The Blasphemously Large First Issue. (more…)

Last week on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Simmons finally made it back from her undercover operation. She also happened to have a little help from Bobbi Morse, AKA Mockingbird. Now, with one returning and one new addition to the team, Coulson sets out to fight H.Y.D.R.A. once again. This time, however, H.Y.D.R.A.’s main plan of attack is a PR move that could have the world hunting after Coulson’s team with a vengeance. Scroll on for a review of ‘A Fractured House‘. (more…)
