Stargate: More Sci-fi Refugees

Sure I’m happy about the fact that, even though Stargate SG-1 is going off the air, the team featured in the show will continue to have adventures in movie form, but I think I’d still be happier with the show staying on the air. I mean, I’d rather see 22 episodes a year, than a […]

Series: Painkiller Jane

About six months ago I was able to hunt up a copy of the ‘pilot’ for a potential series based on the Event Comics character Painkiller Jane. While it was billed as a ‘made for tv’ movie, the two hour long effort which stared Emmanuelle Vaugier (Saw 2, Two and a Half Men), was also […]

The disgust is mostly bought on from what I perceive to a […]

Wonder Woman: No Whedon for You!

Depending on where you look, the weekend’s coverage of Joss Whedon’s exit from the Wonder Woman project was either graceful and simply a case of ‘shit happens’ or the shafting that the bastard deserves… Realistically, it all depends on whether the writer of the post you read is a fan of Whedon’s work or not.

Machinima: Still Holding Out

Quite a while back now four losers got together and produced arguably the some most inept attempts at machinima ever. Machinima, for the uninitiated, is the process of using a game engine to produce videos, primarily for the purposes of entertainment: Athough, the aforementioned band of idiots dispensed with the ‘entertainment’ part and managed to […]
