Outrage Watch: Method Man is really, really angry about this Wu-Tang album auction

18 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Welcome to the March 5, 2015 edition of Outrage Watch, HitFix's (almost) daily rundown of all the things folks are peeved about in entertainment. Today's top story: Method Man is speaking his truth -- loudly and with a lot of curse words. After hearing that his former Wu-Tang clan cohorts would be auctioning off the only copy of the band's secret "final" album "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" for millions of dollars -- with the caveat that the buyer will not have the right to make money off the album for 88 years -- Method Man did not hold back in an interview with Xxl magazine. “Fuck that album,” said the rapper. “I’m tired of this shit and I know everybody else is tired of it, too. Fuck that album, if that’s what they are doing. I haven’t heard anything like that, but if they’re doing crap like that, »

Comic Book Review – Star Trek: New Visions – “A Scent of Ghosts”

4 March 2015 9:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Villordsutch reviews Star Trek: New Visions – “A Scent of Ghosts”…

John Byrne continues his new Star Trek photoplay adventures with “A Scent of Ghosts” and “Memoriam.” Past and Present collide, as the Enterprise takes aboard a special figure from Spock’s past, only to find themselves haunted by an mystery from years before. Plus, a sad farewell.

Star Trek: New Visions “A Scent of Ghosts” for me (and I’m going on record here by saying this) is the most interesting science fiction tale I’ve encountered in these New Visions pages.  We’re crossing over the generations between Pike’s time in the chair with and Kirk’s era in the throne.  We join the Enterprise which is currently escorting Pike’s old Number One, who is now a Commodore (still no name the poor soul) to the Yorktown.  However the trip doesn’t go according to »

4 March 2015 8:38 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As relentless as the living dead can be, humans are still more dangerous in the world of The Walking Dead. That belief is mirrored in Skybound's new edition of The Walking Dead #1 that will be available to Wizard World Raleigh attendees later this month. The cover features new artwork from Billy Dogma creator Dean Haspiel and showcases a familiar face for fans of both the comic book series and the TV show, though what's thrust in front of him is something only the former may recognize.

How Leonard Nimoy Tried to Escape the Grip of Mr. Spock

27 February 2015 11:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leonard Nimoy titled his 1977 autobiography “I Am Not Spock,” referencing the “Star Trek” role that, in its own way, became a pair of velvet handcuffs. Indeed, for actors, few parts better sum up the conundrum they can face – eager to find a steady role that propels them into the public consciousness, only to become at least partially shackled in terms of the doors that association closes.

Nimoy had bounced around in Westerns and smaller movie roles before landing the gig as Mr. Spock, the emotionless Vulcan. Even more than most of his “Star Trek” castmates, he seemed to chafe against some of the expectations the series engendered – amusingly spoofed in William Shatner’s mock “Get a life!” outburst at Trekkers on “Saturday Night Live” – before ostensibly resigning himself to them.

In that regard, there were always mixed feelings in seeing Nimoy drawn back into the franchise, although he wisely parlayed »

Leonard Nimoy: 1931-2015

27 February 2015 11:13 AM, PST | IMDb News

Leonard Nimoy, the eloquent, baritone-voiced actor and director who will forever be remembered as the Starship Enterprise's supremely logical half-human, half-Vulcan science officer Spock, died on Friday in Los Angeles. He was 83 years old.

Although his most recent major television role was on Fox's "Fringe," Nimoy's work on the television series "Star Trek" led to Spock becoming one of the most beloved sci-fi characters in the history of the genre. It also earned him three Emmy nominations for the role. Today Spock's V-shaped Vulcan hand salute, accompanied by the gentle benediction, "Live long and prosper," is recognized around the world. The "Star Trek" franchise may have defined the better part of Nimoy's career and made him a pop culture icon, but the man was as versatile as he was famous. He authored a number of books, recorded several albums, directed television episodes and theatrical releases (including the 1987 comedy blockbuster 3 Men and a Baby) and won critical notice as a respected photographer over the course of his lifetime.

Born in Boston on March 26, 1931, to Yiddish-speaking Orthodox Jewish immigrants from Ukraine, Nimoy began acting in community theater at the age of eight. His first major role came at age 17, when he played Ralphie in an amateur production of Clifford Odets's "Awake and Sing." After receiving career advice from an actor in another Odets play making its pre-Broadway debut in Boston, he submitted an application to California's Pasadena Playhouse. Nimoy would then relocate to the West Coast using his earnings from selling vacuum cleaners.

Nimoy made his film debut at age 20 in the 1951 film Queen for a Day, and won a small role as a ballplayer in the film Rhubarb, which was released in the same year. His first movie lead was the title role in the 1952 film Kid Monk Baroni. Nimoy then took drama classes at Boston College in 1953.

Following a stint in the Army between 1953 and 1955, Nimoy had guest starring roles in a number of television series. Starting in 1958, he appeared in "Sea Hunt," "Highway Patrol," "Bonanza," "The Untouchables," "Get Smart" and "The Virginian." He also guest starred in an episode of "The Twilight Zone" titled "A Quality of Mercy," and would work with his future co-star and friend William Shatner in the "The Project Strigas Affair" episode of "The Man from U.N.C.L.E."

But it was Nimoy's role in a 1964 episode of "The Lieutenant" that caught the eye of a producer and writer named Gene Roddenberry, who cast Nimoy in his new series "Star Trek." Nimoy is the only member of "Star Trek's" main cast to appear in every episode of the series, including the original unaired pilot. Of the famous Vulcan salute, Nimoy once explained that he based it on the way the rabbis in his childhood held their hands while giving blessings. (He also invented the Vulcan nerve pinch when he and the "Trek" writers needed a non-violent means for Spock to overpower an enemy.) The series only ran until 1969, but went on to inspire a movie franchise and four spinoffs. Nimoy co-starred with the rest of the original cast in the first six installments of the theatrical series, starting with "Star Trek: The Motion Picture" in 1979. He also directed the third and fourth "Trek" films, 1984's Star Trek III: The Search for Spock and 1986's Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Nimoy returned to play Spock Prime for J.J. Abrams' 2009 resurrection of the theatrical franchise and its sequel, Star Trek: Into Darkness.

After the original "Star Trek's" cancellation, Nimoy joined the cast of "Mission: Impossible" playing The Great Paris, a master of impersonation. The actor stayed with that series until 1971. He enjoyed roles in a number of television movies, eventually earning a best supporting actor Emmy nomination for "A Woman Called Golda" in 1982.

Nimoy did not limit his artistic exploration to stage and screen, however. He authored several books of poetry and two autobiographies, the first being the somewhat-controversial 1977 tome "I Am Not Spock," which examined his self-declared identity crisis brought on by being associated with the character. His second, 1995's "I Am Spock," revealed that he had reached a certain peace with the influence the role had on his life. He also recorded several albums, most of which are considered to be masterpieces of unintentional camp.

Nimoy was an avid photographer, having studied photography at the University of California, Los Angeles, in the 1970s. In 2002 he released a provocative collection of photographs titled "The Shekhina Project," which drew controversy for its depiction of Jewish female nudes. Five years after its publication, Nimoy examined the beauty in plus-sized women for 2007's "The Full Body Project."

Nimoy's final TV role was in "Fringe," in which he played genius scientist and Massive Dynamic CEO William Bell, and his final voice-acting role was for the animated film Zambezia.

The actor also was very active on social media, sharing affirmations and words of wisdom on Twitter accompanied by his sign-off, "LLAP," or "Live Long and Prosper." His final tweet, dated February 22, told his 1.13 million followers, "A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. "

Nimoy is survived by his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, his two children, director Adam Nimoy and Julie Nimoy, from his previous marriage to Sandra Zober, as well as a stepson and several grandchildren. »

Leonard Nimoy Dies Age 83

27 February 2015 9:36 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

It’s a heart-breaking sentence to write, but here goes; Star Trek legend Leonard Nimoy has died aged eighty-three.

Announced by his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, he passed away in the early morning at his home in Bel Air in the early morning of 27th February 2015. The actor, who of course played Spock in Star Trek: The Original SeriesStar Trek: The Animated Series, two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, six of the original run of movies and the two recent reboots, had been suffering health complications and was hospitalised earlier this week. He had been suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Despite his heath problems being well publicised, this is still quite shocking news and pretty saddening. Nimoy was always very connected to the fan base, famously embracing the half-vulcan Science Officer after initially trying to put Trek behind him. The sentiment of his first autobiography, »

Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows

26 February 2015 11:42 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Some of the greatest (or at least heavily favored) American television shows got the big screen treatment when they were selected to have their small screen following turn into a cinematic experience. Unfortunately, for every beloved nostalgic television show that translated successfully in movie theaters (The Brady Bunch MovieStar Trek, Batman, etc.) there are boob tube stinkers that overtake the good crop. Sure, there are middle-of-the-road movie adaptations of television programs that have a mixed bag reception (1997’s Leave It To Beaver, 1987’s Dragnet, 2012’s Dark Shadows, etc.). Nevertheless, it is always the unflattering fare that receive the bulk of the attention (do you register, 1999’s The Wild, Wild West ?).

In Boob on the Tube: Top Ten Worst Movie Adaptations of TV Shows we will take a look at the top ten televised offenders that dared to venture into cinema’s stratosphere only to end up floating down shamefully »

20 Mind-Blowing Facts You Never Knew About Star Trek

26 February 2015 11:14 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount

Being a Star Trek fan means having to remember a lot of trivia. For one thing, you have to decide what you call yourself, since followers of the show have been called “Trekologists,” “Treksters,” “Trekkies,” and “Trekkers,” with much debate going on with regards to the latter two, which some still find offensive and consider to mean different things.

Moving swiftly away from that can of worms/air vent of tribbles, Star Trek: The Original Series – as it’s come to be known – remains one of the most successful, beloved and popular science fiction properties on the planet. It began as a humble series of three seasons, cancelled before it got a chance to get its hooks in.

It has since blossomed into the biggest sci-fi franchise in history, earning a cult following in re-runs which lead to four more separate TV series, movies which recently got rebooted and are box office smashes, »

12 Star Trek Films And Series You Won’t Believe Were Almost Made

10 February 2015 4:02 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

For almost half a century Star Trek has endured as a franchise. It might have suffered cancellation twice – Star Trek: The Original Series in 1969 and Star Trek: Enterprise in in 2005 – but it always came back. The idea of Star Trek is an enduring one; humanity successfully voyaging across the galaxy, exploring new worlds, new civilisations and surviving insurmountable odds. It suggests a better future, one where humanity is a force of good across the galaxy.

There have been numerous incarnations of Star Trek over the years. Captain Kirk and the original crew first on TV, then an animated series and finally across a series of successful films. Captain Picard headlined Star Trek: The Next Generation on TV and film, followed by Captain Sisko’s Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Captain Janeway’s Star Trek: Voyager. Trek on television ended with Captain Archer and the crew of Star Trek: Enterprise »

Mindy Newell Is Trekkin’

19 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

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. »

Star Trek's William Shatner to narrate Clangers remake in Us

16 January 2015 7:59 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

William Shatner will narrate the new series of Clangers in the Us.

The Star Trek actor will appear in the contemporary take on the children's animation series, Deadline reports.

The BBC is co-producing the 26-episode series with Us pre-school network Sprout.

Sandy Wax, president of the network, said that Shatner will add "humour and wink in the show", adding that his voice "kind of felt comfortable in outer space".

Michael Palin was announced as the narrator of the remake's UK version in September.

Clangers originally aired for two series and 26 episodes between 1969 and 1972 on the BBC. A four-minute election special also aired in October 1974.

The show's popular and surreal characters, who included Major, Mother, Small, and Tiny Clanger, plus the Soup Dragon and The Iron Chicken, will all be returning.
