Mindy Newell: Stargate Revisited

14 October 2013 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I never really got into MacGyver, but I got my Richard Dean Anderson fix on Stargate Sg-1.

Stargate, as many of you I’m sure remember, was a 1994 movie which circled around a gigantic ring made of unknown metal and covered in what is believed to be Egyptian hieroglyphs that is discovered buried in the sands of Giza, Egypt in during an archeological expedition in 1928. The purpose of the ring remained a mystery for sixty years, its hieroglyphs untranslatable. Finally a brilliant linguist and archaeologist specializing in Egyptology named Daniel Jackson (James Spader) is co-opted by the U.S. government and brought to Cheyenne Mountain (home of Norad) to decipher the scrawlings on the ring, which has been brought there for study and possible use by the military.

He tells the assembled scientists and military officers (including United States Air Force Colonel Jack O’Neil (Kurt Russell) that the hieroglyphs »

James Wan Talks MacGyver Movie

26 July 2013 7:38 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

An increasingly significant player in Hollywood circles, Aussie filmmaker James Wan is currently on the road spruiking his latest horror, The Conjuring, to the world's press. Not that it needs help particularly, what its enormo, $60 million opening weekend in the Us.Not that long ago there was talk of Wan taking on a big-screen version of maverick Diy vigilante MacGyver. It was last November to be precise. But is it still on the cards? We put that question to the man himself when Empire caught up with him in La recently, and here's what he told us... We particularly enjoyed that "I'm all Fast 7" quote. We're all Fast 7 too, James.This news may be music to the ears of Richard Dean Anderson purists, but don't count against the string-and-sellotape ronin getting his own movie somewhere down the line. MacGyver: The Movie has too nice a ring to it. He'd make his own posters too. »

TV on Tap: TV Marathons Jump the Shark and Does “Bunheads” Still have a Chance?

5 July 2013 4:45 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

A German librarian has written a book on how The Simpsons has changed the way gay people are perceived. I’m always mixed about The Simpsons and its heavy usage of stereotypes, but it hasn’t shied away from repeatedly showing gay people as just part of Springfield’s landscape.

A steel mill has to have the most uncomfortably warm dance floor.

On the other hand, GLAAD is angry with Showtime’s Ray Donovan for its pilot where the Hollywood fixer worked for a star spotted picking up a transgender woman. Despite doing great work with gay, lesbian and bisexual characters, Donovan is part of what GLAAD identifies as part of a bad trend of depicting transgender people as subjects of mockery and disgust. I’m surprised to see House of Lies in the condemnations, my initial impression was that it had a potentially strong transgender storyline with the son. »

Exclusive: Jolene Purdy Gives Us a Peek Under the Dome

1 July 2013 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

CBS seems to have a hit on its hands with the thriller "Under the Dome," and one of the stars of the show, Jolene Purdy, recently sat down with Dread Central to talk all about this exciting new series.

Genre fans will certainly remember Purdy from her work in the memorable film Donnie Darko, in which she played Cherita Chen. Purdy talked about her past, leading up to this great new role. "When I was younger, I started doing musical theater around second grade, and I just grew up loving musical theater," Purdy said.

"Then I had an audition for Donnie Darko, and it kind of opened my eyes to what it's like to not necessarily work in chronological order like a play on stage, focusing on story and character. And I've just chugged away at it ever since. Now I've gotten this great opportunity, and it's been amazing."

Book Review: Terry Nation – The Man Who Invented the Daleks

4 June 2013 12:00 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

Author: Alwyn W. Turner

Paperback: 352 pages

Publisher: Aurum Press Ltd; Reprint edition (April 1, 2013)

Isbn-10: 1781310416

Isbn-13: 978-1781310410

Synopsis:

The Daleks are one of the most iconic and fearsome creations in television history. Since their first appearance in 1963, they have simultaneously fascinated and terrified generations of children, their instant success ensuring, and sometimes eclipsing, that of Doctor Who. They sprang from the imagination of Terry Nation, a failed stand-up comic who became one of the most prolific writers for television that Britian ever produced. Survivors, his vision of a post-apocalyptic England, so haunted audiences in the Seventies that the BBC revived it over thirty years on, and Blake’s 7, constantly rumored for return, endures as a cult sci-fi classic. But it is for his genocidal pepperpots that Nation is most often remembered, and on the 50th anniversary of their creation they continue to top the Saturday-night ratings.

Stargate Sg-1 Retrospective Review – Children Of The Gods

3 June 2013 10:54 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Out of the three franchises with ‘Star’ in the title, Stargate is the most overlooked. While it has its dedicated fan base it never reached the heights of the others despite its 17 season run (admittedly this was over 3 shows but still). For me though it was the one I loved the most, from the first episode I saw (Tin Man) right up to the finale of the second spin off Stargate Universe, this show just clicked with me.

Now I’m going to take a look at each episode, right back from the first. I aim to do one of these a week, so with the amount of episodes produced this should conclude in 2076 or thereabouts. I did give a lot of thought to starting with the original movie but decided that due to the recasts and the different production team I would just start with Sg-1. Maybe I’ll »

Don’t Trust The B—- In Apt 23 Unaired Episodes Online

17 May 2013 1:34 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Fans of Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 have a reason to celebrate. The final unaired episodes are available online. There are a lot of people out there who gripe a lot about ABC when it comes to their quick cancel moves (not that this one wasn’t given a decent chance), but this is a cool effort, even if cynics are going to call it a last ditch hope at some ad money, and it’s one that I hope is the start of a growing trend.

With all the possibilities available these days, why wouldn’t you give fans a shot at getting those episodes that never made it to air? Why isn’t everyone doing this?

Check out the full info below, and let me know where you are on this one. Will you watch? Do you not really care anymore since the show is done? »

‘Grindhouse 6: Seedpeople’ Review

9 April 2013 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Sam Hennings, Andrea Roth, Dane Witherspoon, Bernard Kates, Holly Fields, John Mooney, Anne Betancourt | Written by Charles Band, Jackson Barr | Directed by Peter Manoogian

Released during the high point in Full Moon’s relationship with Paramount Pictures, Seedpeople was heavily advertised on its original UK release back in 1992, with ads appearing in many of the horror magazines of the period – including full page ads on the back and inside cover of The Dark Side (which ran for months on end I recall). The film itself wasn’t as successful as the other notable franchises in the Full Moon stable, with many reviews at the time noting that the film was a rip-off of Invasion of the Body Snatchers and essentially that’s what the movie is: a tongue-in-cheek alien invasion flick that echoes the feel of low-budget sci-fi flicks of the 1950s.
