  1. Discuss any movie that is coming soon, new or old that doesn't deserve or need their own thread. Similar to the general TV thread. I'll start with...
  2. Did anyone else catch the release of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix over the weekend? It's based on the comic of the same name by Gerard Way and artist Gabriel Bá. From what I understand, it's a very good small screen interpretation whose artistic license improves on the character stories. I haven't read the comics yet, myself so I would like to hear more from those who have. Anyway, as someone who is new to these characters and this universe, all I'll say up front is that I started watching it on a whim and got so very hooked. I binged it from Friday through Monday. Now I'm searching a

  4. We need a Whovian thread for all Whovian stuff all the time! I'll start this off by posing a query in the final episode of the first season of Doctor Who there is this exchange between Rose and the Doctor. Rose: there was this singing Doctor: That's right I sang a song and the Dalek's ran away now on the surface this could just be a joke meaning that the Doctor can't sing... but I wonder if maybe it's a possible Macross reference. I mean Macross 7 or something ^^. But maybe not... to me it just made me think of Macross 7.... "listen to the Doctor's song!" But seriously now... I lov
  5. The Iron Giant Warner Bros. Pictures, 1999 Directed by Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Ratatouille) Executive Producer: Pete Townshend (the guy from The Who that used to destroy his guitars every night...) Based on the novel The Iron Man by the late Ted Hughes (1930-1998) Running Time: 86 minutes Rated PG for sci-fi violence.

"I live my life a warp factor at a time; nothing else matters. For those 10 seconds or less, I'm free." Star Trek 3's New Director Will Be Fast & Furious 6's Helmer Justin Lin
  7. Twenty years ago, French director Luc Besson (Nikita, Leon: The Professional) gave us The Fifth Element, which was actually a good sci-fi film not made in Hollywood. On July 21, 2017, he'll give us Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, a theatrical adaptation of the popular French sci-fi comic book series Valérian and Laureline (which was one of the inspirations for The Fifth Element). The film stars Dane DeHaan (Andrew in Chronicle, Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Carla Delevingne (Enchantress in Suicide Squad), Clive Owen (Dwight in Sin City, Mr. Smith in Shoot 'Em Up), Rih
  8. From Timo Vuorensola, director of the Star Wreck parody film series, comes his first-ever major motion picture.

  10. As if we had enough of these sequels. Milla Jovovich and Paul W. S. Anderson are back to piss off Resident Evil fans once again with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and judging by the title, it will hopefully be the last time. The film invades Japan on December 23 and in the U.S. on January 27, 2017.

  12. Morgan is a sci-fi film by Luke Scott (Ridley Scott's son) in his directorial debut. It is yet another tale of an artificial lifeform gone wrong. The film opens on September 2, but critics have not taken it very well. "I'm not gonna remember Morgan in T-minus 1 day (Yep, already forgot it)" "B-" "55% and 67%" Official Site Rotten Tomatoes Rating: 41% - "Morgan neglects to develop its decent premise, opting instead to settle for a garden-variety sci-fi thriller with more action than ideas." Metacritic Score: 50 out of 100
  13. Lazer Team is a sci-fi comedy film produced by Rooster Teeth (RWBY, Red vs. Blue) and is a result of a successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign (collecting pledges of US$2.4 million against a campaign target of US$650,000). In the film, four friends stumble upon an alien battle suit and find themselves in a dilemma when they split the suit among themselves. Reviews for the film have been surprisingly positive: "If you want to see the greatest cinematic usage of the jerk-off hand motion (to date), watch Lazer Team. It’s a bit of satirical sci-fi comedy that only the guys at Rooster Teeth ca
  14. Syfy Channel originals, they are low budget classics that are primarily creature features that have been going on since 2002 with over 200 some film titles having the honor of being classified as such. With that said I figured we need a thread and I'll start by posting every original I've seen to date: What are your thoughts on this classic legacy?
  15. Coming to theaters on July 24 is Pixels, a sci-fi comedy remake of the 2010 French short film of the same name. Directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Bicentennial Man), the film is about an alien invasion in the form of '80s video game icons such as Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. Unfortunately, it also stars Adam Sandler, which means this film will be a likely entry on the Worst Science Fiction Film of All Time thread. Pixels @ IMDb

  24. The Good: I just finished the second of a three book trilogy (5th Wave, Infinite Sea, and yet to be released The Last Star) , by Rick Yancey, about an alien plot to wipe out humanity via various waves of destruction. The books are aimed at young adults, as the protagonists are mostly teens, but as with all war books and movies, heavier themes are ever-present throughout. I found both books to be good reads, recommended. As with most YA sci-fi these days, this has already been picked up by Columbia Pictures to be made into a series of feature films. The Bad: The casting: as with the Major i
