Amazon’s Wheel of Time Series Announces a Good Chunk of Its Cast

The exciting news is that Amazon’s much-anticipated Wheel of Time series just cast a ton of actors!

Gloriously Gruesome Sci-Fi Cult Classic Event Horizon Might Become an Amazon Series

I have often proclaimed my love for Paul W.S. Anderson’s 1997 sci-fi horror film Event Horizon, about a deep-space vessel that goes to a very bad dimension and returns with mind-warping powers, and features Laurence Fishburne barking the immortal line “Fuck this ship!” A TV series might happen, you say? Fuck YES! Read More >>

The Westworld Sequel Futureworld Is Low on Killer Robots, But High on Sci-Fi Cheese

Futureworld came out in August 1976. The sequel to Michael Crichton’s Westworld—which tweaks the original’s cautionary tale of technology run wild—hasn’t aged entirely well, especially when compared to the sleek HBO series. But if retro goofiness is what you seek, step right up. Read More >>
