Nimble, New Thimble-Like Game Device, Wants to Give Controllers the Finger

Now Harrison Ford will be the champion of all games. Nimble is a device you can put on your fingertip and use as a wireless game controller, remote or mouse. The press release I got emphasized t...

Second Big Hero 6 Trailer Plays up the Sentiment

The interesting thing about this trailer is the way it's trying to market to both boys and girls at once, as cued by the fact that it initially touts Wreck-It Ralph, Frozen and Tangled. You know...

It's Found Footage vs. Extreme Haunts in The Houses October Built

I know some people are just opposed to found-footage no matter what, but to me, any medium works if you tell the right story for it, and I think this movie might have found it. With Halloween ha...

Cosplayers AREN'T Ruining Conventions. Here Are 5 Reasons Why.

I've seen it posted over and over on my social media in the last twenty-four hours: THE article. The one that says cosplayers are ruining conventions. My highly talented costumer friends - many...

Ask Luke's Mother-in-Law: How CHiPs Gets It Wrong. Also, Pet Detective!

Martha Boyd is not just Luke's mother-in-law - she's also an ex-cop, a landlord, a self-described crazy cat lady, a major Star Trek geek and the widow of a green beret. So go ahead: ask her anyt...

Fan-Made Buffy Animated Series Intro Looks Better Than the Real Show Was

Yeah, I admit I never cared much for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show (the movie's another story - Rutger Hauer and Pee-wee Herman should be vampires more often). That said, I would watch th...

Topps Creates New York Comic-Con-Exclusive Garbage Pail Kid to Tweak Fanboys

It's "Fan Boyd," who'll be available on a limited edition T-shirt and print at the show. Despite Garbage Pail Kids having been based on broad stereotypes from the getgo, I still expect people t...

Now DC Wants You to Rub and Smell Harley Quinn

What they MEAN is that they're doing a scratch-and-sniff comic, even though they can't legally call it that, so they came up with the extremely unfortunate substitute wording of "Rub-and-Smell."...

TR Review: Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart Gets No Merci in the Translation

You could be forgiven for watching Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart, an animated film that feels like an Edward Scissorhands/Hugo mash-up with fairly big plotholes, and thinking something must ha...

Here's Christopher Walken as Captain Hook

I wasn't paying much attention to the production of NBC's Peter Pan Live!, because honestly, why the fuck would anybody do such a thing? Why, indeed. Dammit! They had to go and cast Christophe...

New Comic Book Day: Sinestro's Super Slam and Barbarella's Big Book!

How in the flippin' flip is it almost flippin' Halloween? I mean, sure, it's a month away, but when The Simpsons Treehouse of Horrors is on comics shelves, you know that most of your year has pass...

Lost Returns...in a Phineas and Ferb Cartoon

Synergy! Just as Disney's Phineas and Ferb have helped to pimp recent corporate acquisitions Marvel and Star Wars, so now are they boosting subsidiary ABC network shows...though Lost has been of...

Hot Toys Just Made a Chewbacca With Hair, and It's Wookiee of the Year

Just when you think they can't top themselves, this happens. It's almost TOO real, no? As in, it literally looks like Peter Mayhew in a fur costume, perhaps more believably so than an actual al...

The 5 Best (and 5 Worst) Supergirl Costumes

This past week, Superman's cousin Kara joined the parade of DC heroes making the jump to television, when CBS ordered a full season of a Supergirl television series to begin airing next year. Fr...

Agents of SHIELD SPOILER Thread - Season 2 Premiere

It's baaaaack! Will it be informed in any way by what we learned about Kree from Guardians of the Galaxy? Probably not much. But they have Xena and Agent Cooper now. ...

Alas, the Wait for Total Recall Hookers Is Longer Than We Thought

The three-boobed woman did a pretty good job of hoaxing - until her fake third breast prosthesis got stolen, recovered and inventoried. So much for that MTV reality show that existed only in her...

Here Are Klingon Stormtrooper Ballerinas, Because Why Not?

Here's something you don't see everyday - #Klingon #Stormtrooper #ballerinas! #starwars #startrek pic.twitter.com/Oa4iQCcC4o— Ashley Eckstein (@HerUniverse) September 23, 2014 Than...

TMNT Twofer: Turtles Remade as CG-Retro, and as Realistic Teens

Just to prove that we Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans aren't opposed to interesting remakes - just terrible ones - here are a couple of videos that have fun with the green guys. First, a CG re...

This 18" Master Chief Is the Last Halo Toy You'll Ever Need

That's not to say it's the last one you'll WANT - NECA will probably milk this mold with umpteen Predator-like repaints and partial resculpts like McFarlane did with the smaller figures. Still,...

Kingsman: The Secret Service Trailer 2 Is Uncomfortably Wanted-Like

Yes, I did like Wanted when it came out. Yes, I know they're both based on comics by Mark Millar. But can't I expect Matthew Vaughn to be better than a Timur Bekmambetov imitation? I should ho...
