Uhura Cast for Star Trek XI..And She’s a Fan!! September 18, 2007

Zoe Saldana has been picked to be the new Uhura for the new Star Trek movie.

Saldana who has previously been in Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl and The Terminal (with Tom Hanks) already knows a thing or two about Vulcans.

Uhura’s casting follows casting for Scotty (with a scotsman), Chekov (with a real Russian), Spock (with a guy that has pointy ears). The secret script has apparently been completed and Star Trek XI should be in theatres for X-mas 2008.

Now if they could only cast Kirk…

But without any futher do..here is the future Uhura showing us what she knows about vulcans. Live Long and Prosper Zoe Saldana!

Highlander The Source – Who wants this series to live forever? September 15, 2007

The first Highlander movie is an epic cult classic.

Ever since there have been far too many attempts to re-create that magic on the big screen and the small…the latest attempt is on SciFi tonight called Highlander the Source.

After X movies and shows, we’re finally going to figure out how the immortals became immortal.

Trailer is pretty slick..and the show…well..it follow the standard Highlander model..(namely weak’ish ploting, mediocre acting, excellent action and sound and excellent pacing to an ultimate finale where someone loses their head and a Quickening occurs).

My main problem with this show is – what the frak is considered canon for Highlander? I had thought Highlander : Endgame was it…but now? i don’t know.

Isn’t Christopher Lambert supposed tobe the REAL DEAL Highlander?! Sure Adrian Paul is good but??

Here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it yet…

It’s A Google Universe – And We Just Live In It August 23, 2007

If you ever had a doubt that we’re all just playing in the Google Universe – doubt no more.

Google Earth has gone Universal. That is Google Earth which up until this week was limited only to our little blue planet now has a ‘sky’ portion that shows you the stars from your location.

This is perhaps the greatest thing to happen to astronomy thus far in the young history of the Internet.

How many times have I struggled – traveling as much as I do – trying to figure out the sky from wherever my travels take me? – Sure the charts help but Google Earth Sky mode is…


It is the most fluid, dynamic and visually accurate astronomy program i have ever seen and i strongly encourage anyone with an interest in the skies to check it out.

Posted by showmescifi in george lucas, lightsabers, logan's run, Sci Fi, science fiction, sciencefiction, scifi, star trek tng, starwars, YouTube.

from the ‘let’s remake every film every made files..’

Logan’s Run the classic 1976 movie where everyone over a certain age is eliminated to keep the population under control..is being remade. Multiple news sources (with Reuters being the key) are reporting that the remake is now in full swing.Commercials veteran Joseph Kosinski will make his directorial debut on the sci-fi thriller, which has been in the works at the studio since the mid-’90s.

Sure the pacing of the 1976 movie may be a bit slow by today’s standards but Logan’s Run is a concept film and it still holds up well to the test of time.

Well the movie does…70’s trailer…not so much..but check it out for yourself below:

Battlestar Galactica Razor Preview July 11, 2007

SciFi showed a 30 second preview of the upcoming movie Battlestar Galactica Razor – set to air in November.


War Is Our Imperative. So We Will Fight – Admiral Cain in Razor.

I see this movie based on the trailer – as a copycat approach of the Babylon 5 movie ‘In the Beginning’ (which was awesome too). Originally we thought that this movie would be all about Battlestar Pegasus, but it looks like its really about the origin of the war itself – which got an ok treatment in the mini-series- but will get a different viewpoint in the Razor movie.

Without any further ado..here’s the trailer that aired last night on Scifi. Enjoy.

RvD2: Ryan vs. Dorkman 2 the ultimate fanboy lightsaber duel March 9, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in lightsabers, RvD2, ryan vs dorkman, sith, Star Wars, starwars, YouTube.

RvD2: Ryan vs. Dorkman 2 is now one of my fav fanboy lightsaber duels ever.

Long story short two average dudes duke it out in a factory with real slick saber action that is jaw droppingly awesome. The footage is professionally done and the lightsaber sounds and effects are top notch.

One of my fav sequence occurs at 4:20 where the two of them use the force to try and attrack and repel a lightsaber that has been dropped. The one dude finally wins out but then the butt of the saber hits him in the head – JUST CLASSIC.

Then at 5:48 he gets his hand cut off and to add insult to injury gets his knee sliced too…almost like Monty Python Holy Grail and the black knight scene.

Anyways without any further ado – RvD2: Ryan vs. Dorkman 2 live from YouTube.
