After the cancellation of Star Trek: The Original Series, bringing the crew back to our screens was a long a torrid affair that took over a decade. Sure, we had the Animated Series in the early 70′s, but the fans wanted live action, and they made this well known at the conventions around that period.
The immediate thought was to bring the show to the big screen – movies! So Gene Roddenberry teamed up with Paramount Pictures and began to work on his script, tentatively titled Star Trek: The God Thing. Now I don’t know what it is with Roddenberry, but for some reason he always seemed to go back to religion, and he tried to do it once more. Paramount didn’t like it and so they ended up shopping around for other scripts.

I bet you’re thinking, “Hey, I could of guessed that.”
After all, R2-D2 and C3P0 are the glue that unifies the original Star Wars movies with the lesser respected prequels that came later. So while R2-D2 is on board for these new J.J. Abrams films, we’re all expecting C3P0 to come back as well.
Unfortunately, what the Internet is not expecting is an original script. After the prequels disappointed, these new films just feel like Disney cashing in its Lucas chip so that it can take over the “blockbuster film” industry between Marvel Comics’ superhero movies and Lucas flicks.
J.J. may have become a sci-fi favorite because of Lost, but Star Trek: Into Darkness and his new series Almost Human have led me to believe that J.J. doesn’t care about originality anymore. Into Darkness was a »

Director: Philip Kaufman
Running Time: 115 minutes
Synopsis: In San Francisco, a group of people discover the human race is being replaced one by one, with clones.
Philip Kaufman’s acclaimed adaptation of Don Siegel’s 1956 sci-fi classic Invasion Of The Body Snatchers remains one the earliest and beloved remakes in the genre, while remaining faithful with author Jack Finney’s source novel ‘The Body Snatchers’. Director Kaufman’s paranoia-fuelled update improves on the simple storyline of a population being replaced by emotionless alien duplicates by shifting the extraterrestrial terror to one of the United States’ most iconic cities. San Francisco adds a sometimes epic scope to proceedings, and also suggests this could very well be a sequel as these pod-like otherworldly arrivals, with the ability to eerily clone human beings, have expanded beyond that initial and unlucky small town. »

In this day and age, the level of an individual’s celebrity can often be measured by whether or not they have appeared in The Simpsons.
A guest voice on the show (playing a new character) is one thing, but appearing on the show as themselves is another level entirely.
Paul and Linda McCartney, Cypress Hill, the Smashing Pumpkins, Leonard Nimoy, Kim Basinger, Jerry Springer, Mark Hamill, Cyndi Lauper, Ron Howard, Dolly Parton, Elton John, Stephen Hawking, Lucy Lawless, Mel Gibson, Kid Rock, Willie Nelson, Stephen King, Andre Agassi, Pete Sampras, Venus and Serena Williams, Paul Newman, Richard Gere, Wolfgang Puck, Stan Lee and Carmen Electra (I could go on and on and on…) amongst many others have appeared as themselves on the ever-popular animated series, with varying levels of prominence and success, but we still love a fresh celebrity appearance despite the fact that many have already been there before. »

If an entire country were to commission an authorized biography, it likely would resemble “The Prime Ministers: The Pioneers,” filmmaker Richard Trank’s celebratory overview of Israel’s first three decades. Produced by Moriah Films, a division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and based on the book by Yehuda Avner, who serves here as avuncular host and talking head, the documentary (still playing theaters Stateside since its Oct. 18 New York opening) is moderately interesting as a once-over-lightly political history lesson best suited for home-screen consumption. Amusing behind-the-scenes anecdotes sporadically lighten the prevailingly reverential tone.
A former Israeli diplomat who served in sundry capacities under such icons as Golda Meir, Yitzhak Rabin, Levi Eshkol and Menachem Begin, Avner — now a hearty and loquacious octogenarian — was singularly well placed to be an eyewitness to history. His vivid recollections of key event, particularly the triumphant Six Day War and the near-disastrous Yom Kippur War, »

Every year, we here at Sound On Sight celebrate the month of October with 31 Days of Horror; and every year, I update the list of my favourite horror films ever made. Last year, I released a list that included 150 picks. This year, I’ll be upgrading the list, making minor alterations, changing the rankings, adding new entries, and possibly removing a few titles. I’ve also decided to publish each post backwards this time for one reason: the new additions appear lower on my list, whereas my top 50 haven’t changed much, except for maybe in ranking. I am including documentaries, short films and mini series, only as special mentions – along with a few features that can qualify as horror, but barely do.

Happy 75th birthday to one of our favorite actors, Christopher Lloyd!
The actor, who's played some of filmdom's most beloved characters, including Doc Brown in "Back to the Future," Professor Plum in "Clue," and Uncle Fester in the "Addams Family" films, was born on October 22, 1938 in Stamford, Conn.
Partly because of his height, and partly because of his manic intensity and commitment to even the wildest characters, he's portrayed a series of eccentrics, from mad scientists to aliens; had an impressive, award-winning theater career; and will always be remembered as Reverend Jim on "Taxi."
In honor of his 75th birthday, we've come up with 75 reasons why he's so awesome.
1. He's played a Klingon, a cartoon, the Wizard of Oz, an angel, a leper, and a geriatric vampire.
2. He stands an impressive 6'1."
3. Because he's so tall, he had to hunch over to appear in the same frame with "Back to the Future »

When it premiered in 2007 the creators and writers Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady had no idea what a massive hit The Big Bang Theory would be or the cultural effect it would have on the world. Without a doubt The Big Bang Theory has exceeded expectations in all areas. The show has managed to create a niche for itself in a very competitive world of TV shows by using a concept that is relatively unique, a wonderful cast and hilarious scripts. The Big Bang Theory is also incredibly scientifically accurate, more than once I have looked up something said on the show out of interest and found it to be not only true but incredibly complex.
One of the main things the show has that others don’t is the character Sheldon Cooper, arguably the protagonist. Sheldon is a unique character in that the writers can use him as a blank canvass of ideas. »

A whole mess of factors goes into what projects a director takes on. A young up-and-comer might be happy just to get his first directing credit, regardless of what it might actually be about. A director who's been around the block might pick up a project way outside of their wheelhouse just for the experience. And the promise of a couple bucks doesn't hurt, either.
In other words, sometimes you just can't pin a filmmaker down. Here are some rather odd and unexpected director-movie pairings.
Between "12 Angry Men," "Network," "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Serpico," it's fair to call the late Sidney Lumet an all-time great. But considering most of Lumet's career was dedicated to crime and drama, "The Wiz," a musical "The Wizard of Oz" adaptation set in Harlem (and, later, Oz), is a definite oddball in his canon. Starring such powerhouses of African-American culture as Michael Jackson, »

• More on Star Wars Episode VII
So Harrison Ford is still not quite sure whether he wants to spark up the Millennium Falcon's hyperdrive one last time and head back into the Star Wars universe. During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, to air on Friday, Ford knocked back assumptions that he is dead set to play Han Solo once again in Jj Abrams' upcoming Episode VII. "I've not quite made the choice," the Mirror quotes him as saying.
Of course, we don't know the context for Ford's comments. The wily old tease may have been mugging for the studio audience, lapping up the howls of disappointment that no doubt followed such a statement. But the 71-year-old action movie star said he would play Indiana Jones once »

These morphed images that mix the original Star Trek actors with the new actors give us the ultimate versions of our favorite Star Trek characters. They were created by Reddit user ThatNordicGuy, and I'm actually really surprised by how awesome they are. They include Chris Pine and William Shatner as Kirk, Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy as Spock, Karl Urban and DeForest Kelley as Bones, and more. Check out the images and let us know if you like the outcome!

Hugh Jackman goes extra dark in Prisoners, but the real surprise, says People's critic, is the late James Gandolfini showing his lighter side in Enough Said. See This var brightcovevideoid = '2682946555001'; Prisoners There's nothing like the psychic shock and horror of child abduction. It terrifies communities and sends parents into entirely understandable panic. So it's with no small calculation that Prisoners snatches two children right out from under their watchful parents' noses - and on Thanksgiving, no less. Then it gets really mean. If you're no fan of on-screen brutality, then this is not your Saturday night at the movies. »
