They live in the sewers, have insatiable appetites, and are highly skilled with an array of weapons. From a distance, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles seem like antagonists from a fright flick, but a closer look proves otherwise. A toy tinkerer, however, recently reimagined the beloved batch of pizza eaters as iconic horror movie villains who hunger for murder rather than a steamy slice of pepperoni and cheese.
In the 1990’s, Playmate released a plethora of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures that displayed the half-shell ninjas in many different outfits—from a samurai’s armor to an astronaut’s spacesuit.
Dan Polydoris of Chicago Toy Collector took advantage of the eclectic Tmnt action figure attire, borrowing items from various figures to build four new Ninja Turtles that imitate the looks of Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, and Michael Myers. Dubbed “Sewer Slashin’ Tmnt”, we have a look at the »

30. No Country for Old Men (2007)
Scene: Coin Flip
There was a brief period of time from 2006-2009 when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences made some more daring, but wholly deserved choices for Best Picture. It began in 2006, when Martin Scorsese finally won for The Departed which, while not his best and not nearly as dark as, say, Taxi Driver or Raging Bull, still leaned that direction. Three years later, they handed the Oscar to The Hurt Locker over the blockbuster Avatar, rewarding quality over audience love. But in between the two it was given to No Country for Old Men, an incredibly dark neo-Western based on the Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. It’s still one of the Coen Brothers’ best films, an incredible cat-and-mouse journey through West Texas in the 1980′s. The film stars Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones, »

Science Fiction has a huge history and is very diverse. From Frankenstein to the Xenomorph, Body Snatchers to the Sand Worms of Dune the only thing that restricts it is imagination. With a history so packed with sub genres, characters and worlds how can we keep up with all the information they provide? Sci-Fi Chronicles: A Visual History of the Galaxy’s Greatest Science Fiction a new book that works as an encyclopaedic guide to science fiction we may just be able to get our heads around it all.
Providing not only a history of science fiction but also timelines, images and connections Sci-Fi Chronicles tries to cover as much of the subject as it can. I was interested to see if they missed anything out, and where I was impressed they included Sapphire & Steel, they could have »

These two are just too cute! Zachary Quinto and his boyfriend Miles McMillan were out and about in NYC on Wednesday when they were caught kissing during a precious Pda moment. The 37-year-old Star Trek star looked hunky in blue jeans, a white tee and a red and blue button-down shirt while his beau looked equally adorable in jeans and a black hoodie. The cute couple hit up a Starbucks in Soho with friends during their outing and McMillan was also toting a bag from specialty shop Dean & DeLuca. At one point, Quinto and McMillan stopped to lock lips. Quinto even put his arm around his model boyfriend while they gazed at each other lovingly. So sweet! Quinto and McMillan have been dating for a »

CBS is claiming a spot in the digital subscription service arena. The media network is introducing its own streaming and live video-on-demand service called CBS All Access. All Access will cost $5.99 a month and be available on all digital platforms, including an app and website. Subscribers will be able to watch over 6500 episodes of CBS-owned content. Classic titles like Star Trek and Cheers will stream without ads, and current seasons of airing TV shows will be available live (with the ad load typical of regular TV viewing) or next-day (with a 25% fewer ads). All Access subscribers will also be able to live stream local CBS television stations in 14 major U.S. markets.

In the current volatile climate of increasing international tension caused by terrorism, Peter Sattler chose to tackle a boiling hot subject with his first feature as a director. He’s dipped his fingers in an assortment of filmmaking jars, from being an on-set dresser for David Gordon Green to dabbling in graphic design for "Star Trek," but with his directorial debut, “Camp X-Ray,” Sattler zooms in with a microscopic look at the current political milieu and paints the ideology of the notorious Guantanamo Bay detention camp (Gitmo) with one brush. Thanks to his friend Green (who executive produced the project and was instrumental with his support), media magnet Kristen Stewart, and one of Iran’s most recognizable thespians in Peyman Moaadi, Sattler was successful in getting his film off the ground for a subject that’s clearly close to his heart (he wrote the original screenplay). Unfortunately, as clear as »

Should Netflix be looking over its shoulder? Yesterday, HBO made the surprise announcement that in 2015 they would be launching a stand-alone streaming service. But today, CBS beat them to punch by launching CBS All Access, which for the low price of $5.99/month grants access to almost everything the network has to offer. The key word here being "almost." On the plus side, the service will allow users to watch episodes of fifteen current prime time shows the day after they air, while also opening up the every season of eight shows including “The Good Wife,” “Blue Bloods” and, uh, “Survivor” (people still watch that?). And that's not all. If you want to dig into the vaults, CBS will make more than 5,000 episodes of vintage fare like “Star Trek,” “Cheers,” "McGyver" and “Twin Peaks” available. Pretty cool, right? Well, there are some notable absences from their new app. CBS All Access »

The service will charge $5.99 a month for full seasons of the network's current daytime and primetime shows, as well as thousands of episodes from CBS' library. The announcement comes the day after HBO surprised the industry by finally announcing a stand-alone streaming service that will debut next year. CBS is betting viewers will pony up for the convenience of streaming its shows anytime, anywhere, as well as access to a vast library of content. »

Apparently, stand-alone streaming services are now the “cool thing” to do if you’re a television network. Just one day after HBO announced that it will launch its own online streaming service in 2015 (meaning no cable subscription needed), CBS is also getting into the streaming game by launching its own on-demand streaming service, CBS All Access. By paying $5.99 per month, those who subscribe to CBS All Access will be able to watch thousands of episode from both current and previous seasons of their favorite CBS shows, such as The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, and Person of Interest. Additionally, classic shows like Star Trek, Twin Peaks, and Cheers will also be available to subscribers. “CBS All Access is another key step in the Company’s long-standing strategy of monetizing our local and national content in the ways that viewers want it,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, »

Yesterday, HBO said our a la carte TV future was coming. Today, CBS said that it's already here. A day after HBO announced the vaguest of plans for a standalone streaming service, CBS not only announced specific plans for its own, but launched the thing. You can already sign up for CBS All Access, a subscription service that, for $5.99 a month, will offer the following: * Full seasons of 15 current CBS shows, with new episodes available the day after they air. * The ability to live stream local CBS stations in 14 participating markets — including New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, San Francisco, Boston, Detroit, Minneapolis, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Pittsburgh and Baltimore, "with more to be added" — with more affiliates allegedly to follow. * Full past seasons of 8 current shows, including "The Good Wife," "Blue Bloods" and "Survivor." * More than 5,000 episodes of classic series from the CBS library, including every episode of "Cheers, »

HBO isn’t the only big TV outlet taking its TV series straight to the masses.
CBS Corp. is launching its own subscription service for on-demand consumption of its flagship network’s TV programs, as well as older series to which it owns the rights. “CBS All Access” will offer thousands of episodes from many of CBS’ current programs, classic series in its library as well as content from its local-tv stations, for $5.99 a month. With the service, anyone who wants to watch CBS shows will be able to do so whether they subscribe to a programming package from a video distributor or not.
The move represents a continuation of the big bet the company made when it declined to take an operating position in Hulu, the video-streaming site run by Walt Disney, 21st Century Fox and Comcast. At a time when the habit of watching TV programs via digital »
