15 greatest ever Doctor Who monsters ranked

23 April 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Doctor Who has debuted its latest menacing monster - an armoured antagonist that looks something like a grasshopper crossed with a tank.

In over 50 years, the world's longest-running sci-fi series has introduced us to hundreds of weird and wonderful creatures - but which is the best?

After much debate, here's our definitive ranking of the most memorable and terrifying monsters from 1963 to 2015 (and we're not counting humanoid wrongdoers, so no Master!).

Read on, then join the debate in the comments below...

15. The Haemovores

1980s Doctor Who can sometimes come in for an unfair drubbing - but there was still plenty of imagination, wit and inventive horror on show when the show was at its best.

'The Curse of Fenric' - airing as part of the final 'classic' series in 1989 - is a strong case for the defence, introducing the vampiric Haemovores - a species of evolved humans who lurked eerily »

Exclusive: Thn Talks to Grace Phipps for ‘Dark Summer’

13 April 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We love a good horror here at Thn and were rather impressed with new release Dark Summer. The film stars It Follows actor Keir Gilchrist as Daniel, a teenage boy whose obsession with female classmate Mona. His obsession with her leads to some very dark places, including Mona’s death and being placed under house arrest for the summer. It is then that he realises that he is not alone, someone or something is haunting him, and he has no place to run.

Playing Mona is up-and-coming young actress Grace Phipps. Phipps started her career in the David Tennant starring Fright Night before going onto a regular role in American television show The Nine Lives of Chloe King. This was followed with a recurring stint on the phenomenally successful The Vampire Diaries. Then she landed a role in the newest Disney craze Teen Beach Movie. In-between Teen Beach and it’s sequel, »

Throwback Thursday – Go Back In Time With These Eight Essential Sci-fi Films

12 March 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Article by Beth Kelly

Science fiction, by its very nature, seeks to innovate in storytelling. Restricted only by the boundaries of their imaginations and the limits inherent to their craft, filmmakers of this genre use complex cinematic effects and fantastical plotlines to create worlds outside time. These films are notable for their craftsmanship as well as their embedded social and political messages, which later serve as reflections of the time periods during which they were produced. For enthusiasts of film, culture, and recent American history, classic science fiction movies provide a window into the past while predicting the course of society’s future

1. Metropolis (1927)

At date of its release this was the most expensive silent film ever made. Unfortunately, in the time since its initial debut in Weimar Germany, nearly a quarter of the original film has been lost. Legendary German director Fritz Lang, a notorious control freak, used inventive »

Hollywood’s 9 Best Robot Heroes and Villains

8 March 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Director Niell Blomkamp’s new sci-fi epic Chappie opened this weekend. The film tells the story of a robot who is given artificial intelligence by his inventor, but he must learn the ways of the world just like a child. However, his innocent mind is being molded by gangsters and violent criminals.

Photos: 'Pacific Rim' and 7 Giant Robot/Monster Mashes

It’s still to be seen if Chappie will go down as a classic in the robot sci-fi genre, but if it whetted your appetite for artificial intelligence movies and android action scenes, here are nine of the best robotic heroes and nine of the craziest robotic villains in cinematic history.

Robo-Heroes

9. Gigolo Joe from A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)

Robert Kinoshita, Robot Creator for ‘Lost in Space’, ‘Forbidden Planet’ Dies at 100

15 January 2015 11:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The science fiction world has lost a great artist. Robert Kinoshita, who worked as production designer and art director in film and television for decades, has passed away.

There are many people who would be hard pressed to name any of the actors from the 1960’s sci-fi TV cult darling Lost in Space or the 1956 film Forbidden Planet. Many of these same people would look at a photo of the robot from Forbidden Planet and say, “Oh yes. That Robby the Robot.” These same people would also probably be able to answer the trivia question: What did the robot in Lost in Space say when times got tough? (“Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!” They have Kinoshita to thank for these robot memories as he designed robots for both of these sci-fi classics.

While Kinoshita will mostly be remembered as a ‘robot builder’, Lost in Space and Forbidden Planet were just two »

Robert Kinoshita, Designer of ‘Lost in Space’ Robot, Dies at 100

13 January 2015 5:14 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Film and television production designer and art director Robert Kinoshita, best known for designing the robot from the 1960s cult hit sci-fi series “Lost in Space” and its ancestor, Robby the Robot from the film “Forbidden Planet,” died Dec. 9 at age 100.

The robot from “Lost in Space” was famous for declaring, in a mechanical but definitely somewhat panicked tone, “Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!”

Kinoshita worked on his first film in 1937, “100 Men and a Girl,” but his film career was temporarily derailed when he and his wife were forced into a Japanese internment camp in Arizona during World War II.

He eventually returned to Hollywood to work on the 1956 sci-fi classic “Forbidden Planet” as a robot builder, including work on the film’s Robby the Robot.

Kinoshita continued to work in film and television as an art director through the 1980s, and in 2004 he was honored with a career retrospective by »

Notebook's 7th Writers Poll: Fantasy Double Features of 2014

5 January 2015 10:08 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

How would you program this year's newest, most interesting films into double features with movies of the past you saw in 2014?

Looking back over the year at what films moved and impressed us, it is clear that watching old films is a crucial part of making new films meaningful. Thus, the annual tradition of our end of year poll, which calls upon our writers to pick both a new and an old film: they were challenged to choose a new film they saw in 2014—in theatres or at a festival—and creatively pair it with an old film they also saw in 2014 to create a unique double feature.

All the contributors were given the option to write some text explaining their 2014 fantasy double feature. What's more, each writer was given the option to list more pairings, with or without explanation, as further imaginative film programming we'd be lucky to catch »
