How do you say goodbye to one of the most topical and twisty sci-fi series of the last few years? That’s the conundrum that fans of Continuum are facing as the show mounts its final season this fall. As a Canadian production, those of us in the Great White North get the first look at new episodes when the season begins, and so it goes for this six-episode final season of Continuum. The first episode is online and available to Canadian viewers, but the second episode was shown tonight at Fan Expo. What follows is (hopefully) a spoiler-free review. (more…)
He’s lean, mean and he’s no Arnold Schwarzenegger, but Jason Momoa IS the new Conan the Barbarian. Directed by Marcus Nispel, the latest feature from Lionsgate has released their Red-Band trailer for the sword swinging barbarian and it’s definitely something else. Sword play, violence and no one-liners, it’s almost like heaven, but with liquor and wenches. I for one an amped for this action fest, I think it looks true to the character. Other bastards here DO NOT think the same. Luke Gallagher thought it looked like “Conan got tossed in a blender with ‘The Mummy’ and Van Helsing'”. What do you think? Are you pumping your fist in the air, or do you hold the original Conan flick to such high regard that you cannot allow yourself to enjoy this?
Also starring Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard, Steve O’Donnell, Raad Rawi Fassir, Nonso Anozie, Bob Sapp and Milton Welsh.
The R-rated fantasy action film hits 3D and 2D theaters August 19th.

A new, UK trailer for director Marcus Nispels reboot of Conan the Barbarian has arrived, courtesy of the film’s Facebook page.
Fuck this movie! I’m sorry, maybe I just idealize the original Arnold Schwarzenegger version so much that I’m decidedly against favoring this reboot. I know it’s trying to stay true to the original Robert E. Howard novels, but it looks bloody awful. It’s like Conan got thrown in a blender with The Mummy and Van Helsing. Yea, we all have a hard on for horse guy from ‘Game of Thrones’ (Jason Momoa), but looking past that, does this trailer really excite you?
Conan is a young Cimmerian man cast adrift in the world by the brutal murder of his father and the destruction of his village. Driven by the need to avenge himself upon the evil Khalar Zym, Conan learns to steal, seduce, and fight his way to his goals. He soon discovers, however, that there are greater things at stake than his own personal quest: an unearthly malevolence stalks the world, and it may be up to Conan himself to save Hyboria from ruin.
Conan the Barbarian Red Band Trailer: The Only Thing that Thirst for Blood More than a Vampire is a Barbarian!
So think 300 but bloodier (if that’s even possible) and you’ve the latest film adaptation of Conan the Barbarian. Being brought to us by Marcus Nispel best known for his 2003 remake of Texas Chainsaw Massacre (yes, the one with Jessica Biel and YES she looks super hot) Conan is full of one liners and lots of action. And although I was a fan of TCM I’m not too sure about this blood obsessed Conan. At least lead Jason Momoa is looking pretty damn hot; So if you can stomach all the gore, at least there’s something for the ladies! Conan also stars Rachel Nichols,Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard, Steve O’Donnell, Raad Rawi Fassir, Nonso Anozie, Bob Sapp and Milton Welsh.
