Mike Gold: Patton Oswalt Really Is Everywhere!

29 November 2016 3:43 PM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Patton Oswalt is ubiquitous.

The comedian / actor / writer / producer has a list of credits longer than Reed Richards’ arm, and if I mention just some of the shows he’s been in (or voiced) that I enjoyed, you’ll understand why I think he’s tapped into my cable feed. But, in the interest of full disclosure, this personal list includes Justified, Agents of Shield, Community, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Futurama, Burn Notice, Veep, Archer, and Static Shock. He’s co-starring in the newly revived Mystery Science Theater 3000 playing the latest newest member of the Forrester family. And he steals the spotlight in Foil, one of Weird Al Yankovic’s best videos.

If somebody semi-knowledgeable told me Oswalt is one of the guys in the Daleks cans, I’d probably believe ‘em.

He’s made no secret of his being a comic book fan – he pitched a “death of Superman” story »

Event Review – Destination Star Trek: Europe 2016

11 October 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black reports from Destination Star Trek: Europe 2016…

Star Trek @ 50. Why hasn’t more of a fuss been made? That’s been on many Trekkie thoughts over the course of this year. Sure, Star Trek Beyond hit cinemas and Star Trek: Discovery is about to start filming, but celebrations of the landmark birthday for, arguably, the most iconic television series in history have been surprisingly scant. Hailing Destination: Star Trek Europe, which lowered its shields for the third time since 2012 for a massive, three-day celebration of all things Star Trek at the National Exhibition Centre outside Birmingham – and I was lucky enough to snaffle a press pass & beam my way onto the bridge.

Sadly, I wasn’t quite lucky enough to be there from the press-exclusive outset due to the pesky job I have to maintain, but I did have a few Section 31 agents on the ground who I »

Glenn Hauman: Trek Against Trump

3 October 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Fifty years and one month ago, a new TV show came to the airwaves that was unlike anything ever really seen before – science fiction, but not childish stories of space cadets with their zap guns, only different from shoot-em-up westerns because they shot beams of light instead of bullets of lead. Star Trek was something different. Unique. And incredibly long lived. Star Trek has become part of the American story, with the original model of the U.S.S. Enterprise hanging in the Milestones of Flight section of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, right next to the Spirit of St. Louis.

David Gerrold, author of the episode “The Trouble With Tribbles”, recently wrote,

“From the beginning, Star Trek was a series of little morality plays. From the beginning, Star Trek was an examination of the human condition. From the beginning, Star Trek was a vision of a future »

‘Star Trek’: 50 Years of Films and TV, Ranked From Worst to Best

8 September 2016 8:48 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Beyond the 19 films and TV shows that make up official on-screen “Star Trek” canon, there are quite a few more efforts that could, philosophically, be a part of this list.

There’s the rich legacy of officially licensed novels and comic books that brought the characters to life in print form. There’s the technology invented by production designers that eventually became real-life wizardry. There’s the 1999 film “Galaxy Quest” — technically a parody, but spiritually one of the best “Star Trek” movies ever made.

There are the vibrant fan communities that, even during the franchise’s many dormant periods, ensured that “Star Trek” would never actually die. And there are the many real-life scientists and astronauts whose passion for boldly going into the real depths of the unknown were inspired by a show »

‘Star Trek’ 50th Anniversary: Cast, Creators, Fans Choose Favorite Episodes

8 September 2016 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When “Star Trek” premiered 50 years ago today, its reception was colder than the weather outside the Klingon penal colony on Rura Penthe.

“And away we go to another planet for the sci-fi buffs to lick the plate clean,” Variety‘s Sept. 8, 1966 review of the premiere episode, “The Man Trap,” declared. “But there had better be a hefty cargo of them or the Nielsen samplers may come up short.” Predicting doom, it continued, “The opener won’t open up many new frequencies after this sampler.” So not exactly boffo.

The review was typical of the initial response to Gene Roddenberry’s science fiction drama. After a troubled development that saw the initial pilot scrapped and a new one with mostly new characters — the only holdover being Leonard Nimoy’s Spock — created from scratch, “Star Trek” hung on for a short while, renewed for a second, then a third season before being cancelled.

Molly Jackson: The Ongoing Mission

7 September 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past weekend I attended Star Trek Mission in New York City. Despite my Trekkie status, this was actually my very first Star Trek convention. It was a great experience to finally have and it was nice to see a whole group of people that share my love and passion for Star Trek. I got stopped on my way to and from there, with other attendees sharing the Vulcan hand symbol or asking questions. It was a great community convention, with a community all our own.

A big theme of the convention was diversity. It was echoed and praised at every panel I was in. Fans referred to it as a major point of the show in their Q&A. The writers for Star Trek Discovery made a point of mentioning it in their very vague show plans. (Seriously, they gave up nothing!) Every panelist made a point to speak »

Disney Dominates Weekend Box Office with Jungle Book and Captain America: Civil War

1 May 2016 2:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The last weekend in April is normally rather quiet at the box office, since it represents the calm before the storm that is the summer movie season. Next weekend, Marvel's Captain America: Civil War kicks off the summer movie season, but Disney's The Jungle Book has been dominating since opening earlier this month. The adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's timeless classic has won for the third straight week in a row, taking in an impressive $42.4 million, beating three newcomers who all underperformed, Keanu, Mother's Day and Ratchet & Clank. Captain America: Civil War also posted impressive box office numbers in its international debut this weekend.

Last weekend, The Jungle Book dropped just 41.1% to take in $60.8 million. According to Box Office Mojo, the Disney adventure only dropped an impressive 31% in its third weekend, earning $42.4 million from 4,041 for an impressive $10,502per-screen average. The movie has earned just over $252 million domestically and $684.7 million worldwide, »

Movie Review: Ratchet and Clank

29 April 2016 6:46 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

I would feel dishonest writing this review if I didn’t mention my attachment to the game series on which this film is based: I am a massive fan and have been playing them since Ratchet and Clank was first released in 2002. I have played every single entry in the franchise and have almost always been completely satisfied with my experience. Naturally, when I heard my beloved duo was making the transition to the big screen, I was delighted. Perhaps it was these admittedly high expectations that led to it being a generally disappointing experience, however there are a few reasons that I think I would have come to this conclusion regardless of my history with the franchise.

The film follows Ratchet (voiced by James Arnold Taylor), a young Lombax hoping to become a hero. Meanwhile, Alonzo Drek (voiced by Paul Giamatti) and his evil partners Dr. Nefarious (voiced by »

Movie Review – Ratchet & Clank (2016)

29 April 2016 4:43 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ratchet & Clank, 2016

Directed by Kevin Munroe and Jericca Cleland

Starring James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye, Jim Ward, Rosario Dawson, Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Armin Shimerman, Bella Thorne, Sylvester Stallone

Synopsis:

When the galaxy comes under the threat of a nefarious space captain, a mechanic and his newfound robot ally join an elite squad of combatants to save the universe.

It’s a big year for video game movies. While we only had one last year in Hitman: Agent 47 – which didn’t perform all that well – we’ve got a whopping four adaptations in 2016. But before we get to Warcraft, The Angry Birds Movie and Assassin’s Creed, we’ve got the smaller budget and smaller release Ratchet & Clank from producer Brad Foxhoven, who nearly brought Metroid to the big screen in 2006 with John Woo. So, how does Ratchet & Clank set the tone for the rest of the year?

As with most video game adaptations, »

Can Disney's Jungle Book Win Week 3 at the Box Office?

27 April 2016 10:29 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After dominating at the box office for two weeks in a row, Disney's The Jungle Book will go up against three newcomers in the final weekend of spring, before the summer movie season officially kicks off with the May 6 release of Captain America: Civil War. Standing in The Jungle Book's way of a three-peat is the Warner Bros. comedy Keanu, Focus Features' animated adventure Ratchet & Clank and Open Road Films' Mother's Day. While The Jungle Book most certainly won't win on May 6, going up against Captain America: Civil War, it should have no trouble taking the top spot for a third week in a row.

According to Box Office Mojo, both Ratchet & Clank and Mother's Day are expected to open in approximately 2,800 theaters, with Keanu expected to debut in more than 2,600 theaters. Keanu is already a hit with the critics, with a 75% score on Rotten Tomatoes, while Mother's »

Jackie Earle Haley Eyed For Villain Roles In The Dark Tower And The Tick

14 April 2016 2:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Continuing his anti-hero/villain persona, actor Jackie Earle Haley is set to play the key villainous figure in Amazon’s reboot of The Tick. There, he’ll portray The Terror and go toe-to-toe with newly-cast Peter Serafinowicz, who plays the titular character. Haley’s baddie is billed as a powerful super villain and leader of an evil league of mysterious characters.

The Terror was featured in one episode of the short-lived Fox live-action version of The Tick back in 2001, played by Armin Shimerman, but it seems like Haley’s version will be a series regular.

On the film side of things, Haley is in talks to join Nikolaj Arcel’s big screen adaptation of The Dark Tower. In the vein of Abby Lee’s casting as little-known book figure Tirana, Haley is circling the role of Sayre, who’s described as “a menacing humanoid who is a vampire leader.”
