Wonder Woman, Catwoman and more DC heroine team-ups we'd like to see
(Cbr) Any episode of a DC television show titled "Birds of Prey" is going to come under incredible scrutiny. After all, that’s the name of one of DC’s longest-lived – and most beloved – ongoing female-lead series. Since most comic book movies still don’t pass the Bechdel test, fans are more than eager to see female interactions that don’t hinge upon their male co-stars in television shows and movies. Now that Arrow has come close to introducing Huntress and Black Canary’s storied partnership on TV, we have five other female partnerships that we want to see make the transition from the page to the screen. Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy This dynamic duo starred in one of the most endearing and enduring episodes of "Batman: The Animated Series,” as it depicted DC’s Thelma and Louise painting Gotham red. Harley’s already had an Easter egg appearance in "Arrow,

Teen Wolf has unveiled some casting news. Confusingly, Flowers In the Attic‘s Mason Dye has been cast as Garrett, while Ender’s Game star Khylin Rhambo has been cast as the “gay freshman with a sense of humor” lacrosse player Mason . Time to hit the gym, boys!

The Weekly Geek: Take Me to Your Leader

Well, geeks, the Us election is (thankfully) over, and things went better for queers – and women – and queer women – than any of us thought. Marriage equality in three more states! A lesbian senator (Tammy Baldwin, the first-ever openly gay Us senator, and geek hero in her own right)! Let’s not forget, this was the first time in history that marriage equality was won by a popular vote. The times, they are a-changing.

In honor of all the good news, we thought we’d take a look at a few of our favorite political women from sci-fi/fantasy. If only there were more women of color represented in the politics of speculative fiction.

Film News: Sci-Fi Spectacular 6 to Invade Chicago’s Portage Theater on April 28, 2012

Chicago – Sci-fi film buffs in the Windy City are invited to attend an April marathon bursting with cinematic gems. “Sci-Fi Spectacular 6” kicks off at noon Saturday, April 28, at the Portage Theater, 4050 N. Milwaukee Ave. It showcases over 14 hours of beloved features, shorts and rare trailers as they were originally intended to be experienced—on the big screen.

Two major highlights at this year’s event are key masterpieces in the career of Terry Gilliam. 1985’s “Brazil” creates an unforgettable portrait of a dystopian future both amusingly absurdist and unsettlingly provocative. Jonathan Pryce stars alongside Kim Greist, Ian Holm and Robert De Niro, while cinematographer Roger Pratt and production designer Norman Garwood provide unforgettable imagery. Equally mesmerizing is Gilliam’s 1995 thriller “12 Monkeys,” in which a grizzled convict (Bruce Willis) travels back in time to prevent a man-made virus from destroying the future. Brad Pitt’s Oscar-nominated turn as a crazed virus

Machete Review

  • Collider.com
Robert RodriguezMachete could use some serious cuts. Despite adopting the tone of a lean, mean exploitation flick, the film feels flabby and is burdened with too many characters and a convoluted plotline that reduces the screen-time of its Mexploitation hero. It’s particularly frustrating when what works in the movie works so damn well. The action is exciting and the jokes are hilarious. But Rodriguez runs up against the same problem he had with Once Upon a Time in Mexico when he reached for an epic and neglected the power of the angry little bloodbath at his disposal.

Ex-Federale/total badass Machete (Danny Trejo) was left for dead three years ago by drug kingpin Torrez (Steven Seagal). Now working as a day-laborer, Machete is hired by Booth (Jeff Fahey), a shadowy figure who doesn’t want gardening as much as he wants the grizzled Mexican to assassinate the bigoted
