Tribute to Actor Leonard Nimoy

23 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The news of Leonard Nimoy's passing last week caused me to reflect on the icon's career. I thought it was time to celebrate his many TV and cinematic accomplishments outside of Star Trek sans the ears that have made him so famous. For the sake of keeping things in focus, I'm concentrating on his other genre appearances and voice work.

The Autobots have run up against a villainous Leonard Nimoy on two separate occasions. He voiced the sinister Galvatron in 1986’s animated The Transformers: The Movie. He also lent his familiar vocal talents to bring to life the traitorous Sentinel Prime for Transformers: Dark of the Moon. We should have known he was evil from the moment we saw the “Mirror, Mirror” evil Spock beard the robot sported.

The actor was taken over by aliens for the 1978 remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. He plays the part of Dr. »

Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015: 6 non-Star Trek career highlights

27 February 2015 1:22 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Leonard Nimoy became an icon of science fiction in the 1960s for his timeless role in Star Trek as the Enterprise's chief science officer Mr Spock – a character he would play on and off for more than 45 years.

While Nimoy will always be best remembered for his work on the Star Trek television shows and movies, he also had an incredibly varied career as an accomplished writer, director, musician and photographer.

In celebration of Nimoy's life and legacy, we look back at six career highlights aside from his work in the Star Trek franchise.

1. Mission: Impossible (1969–71)

Nimoy became a household name in the pioneering science fiction series Star Trek, but even early on he sought to make his career choices as diverse as possible.

Following on the heels of Star Trek's shocking cancellation, Nimoy was cast in Mission: Impossible, another highly influential 1960s television series.

“Live Long and Prosper,” Mr. Spock.

Sad new today, fellow Movie Geeks. Star Trek legend, Leonard Nimoy has sadly passed away. Nimoy’s son, Adam Nimoy, said the actor died Friday of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease at his Los Angeles home. He was 83.

After “Star Trek” ended, the actor immediately joined the hit adventure series “Mission Impossible” as Paris, the mission team’s master of disguises.

From 1976 to 1982 he hosted the syndicated TV series “In Search of … ” which attempted to probe such mysteries as the legend of the Loch Ness Monster and the disappearance of aviator Amelia Earhart.

He played Israeli leader Golda Meir’s husband opposite Ingrid Bergman in the TV drama “A Woman Called Golda” and Vincent van Gogh in “Vincent, »

R.I.P. Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)

27 February 2015 9:45 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The New York Times is this evening reporting the very sad news that Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy has died at the age of 83.

Most famously remembered for his role as Spock in the original Star Trek television show and subsequent movie franchise, Nimoy was admitted to hospital yesterday falling ill. His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his passing after he had been battling with end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease which he had announced last year – a disease he had attributed to his years of smoking, which he had given up almost thirty years ago.

Nimoy returned to the Star Trek universe most recently in J.J. Abrams’ franchise reboot Star Trek and its sequel Star Trek Into Darkness, and has also recently featured in TV’s The Big Bang Theory and Fringe and lending his voice to Transformers: Dark of the Moon. He also directed several movies, including Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, »

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Oscars

19 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Tron: Legacy.” “Salt.” “Real Steel.” “Rio.” “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon.” “Ted.” “Prometheus.” “Star Trek Into Darkness.” “Despicable Me 2.” These are just some of the movies that have received Oscar nominations in various categories in the last few years (mostly thanks to technical prizes), perhaps starting to suggest to the layman that all you have to do is release a movie and you’ll get nominated for an Academy Award. Of course, many of the films above were deserving: few would argue that the sound editing in “Transformers,” or the visual effects in “Star Trek” weren’t world class. But while the awards are spread, rightly, wider and wider, it still leaves a lot of movies out in the cold, and it always has. Many of the greatest movies of all time were nominated for, or won, Oscars, but not all of them. And so, with this Sunday’s ceremony fast approaching, »

Mad Max: Fury Road gets an international trailer

19 February 2015 10:26 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the long-awaited release of Mad Max: Fury Road draws ever-closer, an international trailer has arrived online for the latest chapter in George Miller’s iconic post-apocalyptic action series, although by the looks of things it doesn’t offer up any new footage from the Tom Hardy-headlined film. Still, it’s pretty great, so check it out below…

Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of George Miller‘s Road Warrior/Mad Max franchise co-written and directed by Miller. The post-apocalyptic action film is set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and most everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life.

Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order… There’s Max (played by Tom Hardy from The Dark Knight Rises), a man of »

“Everybody’s gone out of their mind. You’re not the only one, Max.” Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of writer/director George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters. You can get a taste of the post-apocalyptic mayhem to come in a new batch of film stills featuring Nicholas Hoult as Nux, Charlize Theron as Furiosa, Tom Hardy as Mad Max, and several more manic characters.
