It is a well-known fact here at Thn that I’m somewhat a fan of Firefly. The sci-fi western starring Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk combined a great world, intriguing narrative and some utterly brilliant characters with a typically snappy Joss Whedon script. What’s not to love? Who knows, but Firefly was cancelled after a limited run in 2002, despite its Browncoat army of fans protests.
Since the show’s farewell movie Serenity, Joss Whedon has successfully assembled The Avengers on the silver screen already and is overseeing the upcoming sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron, while it’s cast has been busy on films like I, Robot, Dodgeball and Wreck-it Ralph, not to mention starring in hit shows Castle, Suits and Homeland. Had everybody moved on and forgotten their love of Firefly and its cast? Of course not!

You know you’re in trouble with a direct to DVD movie when the writer has a resume whose titles are made up of over 50% direct to DVD sequels to films that a) didn’t deserve a sequel or, even worse, b) didn’t need a sequel. Yes, from the pen of Michael Weiss – who has written such lauded films as Octopus 2, I Always Know What You Did Last Summer, The Butterfly Effect 2 and Hostel III – comes The Scorpion King 4. A film that is, given just how truly terrible the last film was (a shock given the great Dtv credits of its director Roel Reine), truly unexpected… After all, when all you »

Although Supergirl, Catwoman and Elektra are movies that exist, there are times when we wish they didn’t. To be honest, the ‘perfect’ female-headlined superhero movie is still the stuff of our cinematic dreams. Saying that, TV’s Agent Carter provided us with a brilliant example of bringing a female comic book character to the small screen earlier this year, which hopefully Hollywood will learn a lot from going forward.
Of course, Wonder Woman and Captain Marvel will be joining their respective cinematic universes soon, with Supergirl getting a pop at small screen success too. It looks like female comic book heroes will be getting the attention they deserve in the live action realm, finally.
This isn’t the first time the powers-that-be in Hollywood have tried to launch a slate of female superheroes, »
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! On this day, we honor the culture of the Emerald Isle by adorning ourselves in its hues. But green is not just the color of holiday-themed accessories. It also has an illustrious history of playing critical roles in our films and television programs. Below are some of the greatest appearances green has made on our screens. Erin go bragh! – All the way to the box office! 17. The Curtains in "Sound of Music" What better way to introduce a family of neglected children to the concept of fun clothes than with a little splash of green, even if it is from the furniture. 16. The Green Man in “Always Sunny in Philadelphia" Green may not be proud of Paddy's pub, but Paddy's is proud of it. 15. Luke’s lightsaber in “Return of the Jedi. For episode six, Skywalker’s blue lightsaber got an extreme makeover. Two green thumbs way up! »

Lou Ferrigno is angry at his brother (and you won't like him when he's angry) but instead of turning green ... he's skipping right to threatening a lawsuit over his bro's exercise equipment business. Lou and his brother Andrew had a legal skirmish a few years back and eventually reached a settlement ... which Lou says limits Andrew to using the phrase "Andrew Ferrigno equipment." He also has to make it clear his biz has no affiliation with Lou's companies and websites. »

If you take a look at the top 100 all-time highest worldwide grossing movies, fifteen of them are either Marvel or DC comic adaptations. According to Box Office Mojo the third highest grossing film of all time is The Avengers (2012) at over a billion and a half dollars. Comics, it would seem, are major players in the world of entertainment.
Seventy-five years ago it was all very different. Comics were for children and were disregarded as both an entertainment medium and as an art form. Comics were disposable. Because of their ephemeral nature surviving early copies now trade hands for vast sums. »

A Canadian competitive bodybuilder-turned-heavy-metal frontman and B-horror-movie star you probably haven’t heard of — though given that unique resume, you might well wonder why — is the subject of “I Am Thor.” Ryan Wise’s documentary pays bemusedly affectionate tribute to a no-longer-quite-so-buff rock god still doggedly pursuing, at age 60, a stardom that never quite materialized. Like another Canuck headbanger portrait, 2008’s sleeper success “Anvil! The Story of Anvil,” this mix of real-life “Spinal Tap” antics and underdog rooting value should attract a cult following via fest play and niche sales.
Born in Vancouver in 1953, Jon Mikl Thor followed an older brother’s footsteps into bodybuilding at age 14, eventually winning some top prizes. (At one point here we see him chatting at Comic-Con with erstwhile “Incredible Hulk” Lou Ferrigno, to whom he was a runner-up in one such competition.) In love with music, however, he wasn’t content just to flex his biceps, »

A firestorm of controversy surrounds comedian Bill Cosby after multiple allegations have surfaced claiming that he sexually assaulted numerous women, with alleged incidents dating as far back as 1969.
The 77-year-old is known around the world for his role as the lovable father Heathcliff Huxtable on the long-running sitcom The Cosby Show, and for having a stand-up comedy career that spans five decades. However, beginning in 2004, various claims of sexual assault and date rape began being leveled against Cosby.
News: Bill Cosby Alleged Rape Victim Speaks Out: 'Why Wasn't I Believed?'
Cosby has never been charged in any criminal case regarding any of these accusations, and through attorneys has repeatedly denied that any of the allegations are true. Cosby himself briefly addressed the claims, telling Florida Today, "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos."

Have you heard Star Trek Continues? I happened to discover it just today, as I was surfing the web this morning. It is an award-winning …well, let me quote from the site itself:
“Star Trek Continues is a critically-acclaimed, award-winning, fan-produced webseries… the brainchild of long-time Star Trek: The Original Series fan – and producer, director, actor, voice-actor, musician – Vic Mignogna.
“Star Trek Continues is proud to be part of Trek history, aimed at completing
the final two years of the original five-year mission. After mounting a successful Kickstarter campaign, the show is already making waves and attracting guest stars such as Michael Forest, Jamie Bamber, Lou Ferrigno, and Erin Gray – as well as cameos by Star Trek alums like Marina Sirtis and Michael Dorn.”
It really is absolutely captivating. Mr. Mignogna is perfect – and I mean perfect! – William Shatner as Captain James Tiberius Kirk, down to body movements and personal tics. »

There's nothing like a night in the great city of New Orleans to buoy a wrestling fan's spirits. Unfortunately, like most of you, I was at home, many hundreds of miles from the nation's home of all things jazz and jocular. Fortunately, WWE's King of Swing and dozens of other superstars were on hand at the regrettably named Smoothie King Center (especially unforgiveable in the city of Hurricane slushies) to make sweet, scripted in-ring music.
So without any further needless editorial improvisation, here are the five things I took »
