Cowboy Bebop Opening Credits

Cowboy Bebop is one of my favorite anime series. I was worried about Netflix’s live-action adaptation (especially given what they did with Death Note), but they just released the open credits. Let me say this: it looks spot on. They used the same opening score music from the anime (called...

Foundation Series

The latest trailer for the adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation trilogy has just come out. It looks pretty good, but I’m bummed that this series will be on Apple TV. I don’t have Apple TV and have no plan to get it. Even so, I’m sure it will be available...

Vader / Obi-Wan Battle Reimagined

Some very creative and talented people have recreated the lightsaber battle between Darth Vader and Obi-Wan Kenobi, from A New Hope. Obviously, technical limitations in 1977 made an epic lightsaber duel impractical in the first Star Wars movie, but this scene brings the battle inline with what we saw of...

Star Wars on Disney+

Disney just dumped an absolutely massive list of new shows coming soon to Disney+ streaming service, and it’s absolutely mind-blowing! Among many other shows, the super-stars of the announcement were those for Star Wars and the Marvel MCU. In the Marvel MCU there is WandaVision, Hawkeye, What If?, Loki, Ms....

Comparison of Various Sci-Fi Ships

Take a look at this video showing size comparisons between some 80 different ships from various sci-fi series — mainly from movies, but also from games and books as well. I was actually surprised to see a few, such as White Base from Gundam, Götterdämmerung from Iron Sky, the Red...

Animated Thrawn Trilogy Fan Series

Timothy Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy stands out as the fan-favorite Star Wars sequel that sadly never was. Up until Disney bought the rights to Star Wars and released Episode VII: The Force Awakens, the Thrawn Trilogy was considered by most fans to be the de facto sequel, and it also marked...

DUNE First Trailer

The first trailer for the upcoming Dune movie has just been released. Unlike the 1984 movie adaptation by David Lynch, this new adaptation promises to be truer to the book (i.e., no ridiculous voice-powered sonic weapons…). Judging from what I’ve seen in this trailer, it is indeed much truer to...

An Honorable Mention to DragonCon

Well, DragonCon 2020 is canceled this year, due to COVID-19, apart from some virtual convention events that you can see here. I thought it might be a good time to put up this old CollegeHumor “Cosplay Catastrophe” video. Yes, it’s about Comic-Con, but if you’ve ever been to DragonCon, then...

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds

Alex Kurtzman, who’s presently in charge of new Star Trek projects, says that the upcoming new Star Trek series, Strange New Worlds, will return to its roots, with episodic “planet-of-the-week” stories and the bright optimism for the future that made The Original Series so endearing (and enduring). Star Trek: Strange...

X-Wing Tribute Video

Have a look at this absolutely stunning X-Wing tribute video, set to Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone.” The song turns out to be a perfect fit for x-wing pilots. The video has footage from Star Wars Episodes IV through IX, as well as Rogue One. I really wish Disney would make...
