Even geeks want gifts… If you’re not sure what to buy for your favorite SF fan this year (or, if you’re not sure what to ask for), check out the Sci-Fi Gift Guide. Coming soon: my gift list. :-)
It’ll take about a zillion years to download all the graphics, but this rendition of select scenes from “english crazy movie” Monty Python And The Holy Grail is worth the wait. Just trust me on this.
Yup, they’re remastering the first Star Trek motion picture for a DVD release. And, in proud “Star Wars Special Edition” form, they’re taking the opportunity to put in lots and lots of new SFX and graphic touch-ups. There’s only one picture with this article, but it’s a nice picture nonetheless (along with an overview of what they plan to do).
Granted, we’ve only seen the first of three episodes in the “Dune” miniseries. But so far, I’m impressed. Here’s an interview with the director to chew on, while we wait for part two tonight. And feel free to post your impressions and ruminations on the miniseries thus far.
fiziko writes, It seems that Romulans will be involved in the next Star Trek movie. In this article, Rick Berman addresses the presence of Romulans, as well as allusions and rumour-kills about the future of Data and the franchise. Oh my God, they killed the rumors! You bastards!
Recently rebranded “The National Network” to coincide with their acquisition of all WWF programming (go figure), TNN has acquired the rights to three Star Trek series (all but the ’60s original). Also in this report: a quick summary of all which is known about the next Trek movie.
I like “Futurama,” and last year’s ratings suggest that a few of you do as well. Good luck actually watching it, though; it’s that darned football season getting in the way. IGN reports on the anticipated future schedule (hint: still more repeats), why it’s all so messed-up, and how to fix it (hint: FIND A DECENT TIME SLOT).
No one is surprised by this, but I have to list it for completeness: Brent Spiner is now signed for the next Trek movie. Read all about it. There were rumors during the production of ST:Insurrection that Spiner wanted his character, Data, to be killed during the movie, as he reportedly believed he was getting too old to play an ageless android. Let’s officially start the rumors up again. :-)
m0rpheus writes, There’s a new trailer out for the Final Fantasy movie here. You can view it in three diffrent resolutions. It seems to be more focused on the plot this time, as opposed to the cg last time. Now if only they’d use something other than QuickTime, so us Linux users could watch…
