Now Underworld isn’t the most imaginative franchise ever made. Nor is it the most innovative. You also can’t argue that it has the best action, or coherent storytelling, or a compelling supporting cast…. You know what? Let’s just say it’s got its flaws. One of those flaws, however, is not Kate Beckinsale. Her performance in three out of four Underworld movies affirmed Beckinsale’s position as one of the preeminent kick ass heroines of our time. Could you have an Underworld movie without its leather clad, two-pistol packing, kick-punch delivering leading lady? You can, but do you want to? Well, the good news is you don’t have to because Beckinsale will be back for part 5. (more…)

Fox is stepping up their programming releasing trailers for Lucifer, Minority Report, and The Frankenstein Code. Before you get all excited, I have to point out that everything these days seems to be boiled down, or into a police procedural. Even Lucifer there is leaning heavily on the standard Television Police Procedural model. Heck, I’m starting to wonder if the networks know how to do anything else. I guess if you can’t beat the police procedural then you just join them. (more…)

Well, maybe not leaked exactly, but the true identity of Marvel‘s female Thor hits newsstands and comic book shops tomorrow. Since most shops get the weeks comics the night before or morning of, it was sure that someone would post this big reveal before most could get to their local shop to pick it up. Now would be the time that we would insert a huge spoiler warning for anyone that doesn’t want to know.

terminator-genisys-114434

So we’ve been burned twice in the attempt to reboot Terminator without James Cameron and turn it into an epic trilogy filled with trills, chills and spills, all to make some mad bills at the box office. Now Terminator 3 had its moments, and Terminator Salvation had potential until they wussed out on the ending, but can there truly be a satisfying chapter of this series without the man whose vision started it all? That’s the question that Terminator Genisys will try to answer, and from the looks of it, the movie is pulling out all the time travel stops with paradoxes and retconning – TO THE MAX! But now there’s a new twist provided in the latest trailer. Which you can or cannot watch for yourself below. (more…)

agents-of-shield-season-2-640x320

The second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been so much improved over the first season that we barely even noticed that a fairly important player from that initial series has been missing and largely unmentioned in the first 15 episodes of year two. That all changed last night when Director Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood) found themselves in a jam and were forced to ask an old friend for help. The secret was kept pretty good, and we’ll keep it till after the jump just in case you haven’t watched the episode yet, but for fans of the Joss Whedon repertoire of players, it was a very welcome reprise indeed for the man who basically got the series going.
