The Classic Star Trek Episode That Inspired Avengers: Endgame

The 2019 film "Avengers: Endgame," directed by The Russo Bros., and overseen by "showrunner" Kevin Feige, saw the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there have been absolutely no films or television shows about that timeline or those characters since. The series definitively ended with Iron Man sacrificing himself, and Captain Steve America went back in time to grow old. What a fitting ending to the series! But put aside my flippant jibes.In a recent viewing event called a Vudu Viewing Pa...

Star Trek: Discovery Season 4 Finally Releases Worldwide After Fan Backlash

For better or for worse, fan outcry works more and more often these days. The latest entity to bend to consumer will is Paramount+, who will be releasing the fourth season of Bryan Fuller and Alex Kurtzman's "Star Trek: Discovery" series sooner than previously announced. Initially, the latest season to the sci-fi series was only to air in Canada and the United States, as the Paramount+ services did not extend overseas at the time (the show's first three seasons did run internationally, but on a ...

Star Trek: Enterprise Ending Explained: Those Were The Voyages...

"Star Trek: Enterprise" -- originally just called "Enterprise," - was once considered by many Trekkies to be the black sheep of the pre-Abrams era. While it still had many of the same creative people working behind the scenes (the show was created by longtime Trek honchos Rick Berman and Brannon Braga) it deliberately struck a different tone, exploring the early, raucous days of Starfleet: before the formation of the United Federation of Planets, before the writing of The Prime Directive, way ba...

Movies Like Avatar That Are Just As Visually Stunning

At the time, "Avatar" was a box office phenomenon the likes of which the film industry had never seen. It shouldn't have surprised anyone: Director James Cameron had proven himself a titan of that particular arena back in the '90s, unleashing one groundbreaking, blockbuster event film after another, and he'd worked for over a decade developing this ambitious sci-fi project -- an epic that wasn't based on any previously existing material.The road to production wasn't easy, as Cameron's latest for...

The 14 Best Sci-Fi Shows On Amazon Prime

Even before television had the technology to do justice to the ambitious, creative stories that would capture the imagination of audiences throughout the 20th century, science fiction had long been one of the most popular genres on the small screen. By taking a close look at a strange new world, we are often able to better understand our own. And in the case of early television, using science fiction was a way to address socio-political issues without running afoul of censorship efforts ("We're ...

Ten TV Series That Can Help You Be Your Best Self

Most of us have watched more TV than usual during the COVID-19 pandemic—while depression and anxiety went through the roof as isolation and layoffs have taken their toll. That was true for those who worked in show biz. Even as viewership spiked, television production slowed almost to a halt. Actors, directors, editors, writers, location managers, camera and boom operators, grips, and gaffers were stuck at home, just like the rest of us, surrounded by disease, facing uncertain economic futures....

Overlooked '80s Cartoon-Toy Franchises Ripe For Revival

Between the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Star Wars, and even non-Disney-owned name brands like Star Trek and Fast & Furious, it helps a film or TV series' odds to be part of a franchise that already has a certain amount of audience buy-in. This principle extends to properties that made their debut as cartoon shows with attendant toy lines during the 1980s. G.I. Joe has racked up three live-action films since 2009, including "Snake Eyes" in 2021, while the Transformers have churned out six CGI-heav...

Star Trek Animated Movie Similar To Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Teased By Paramount Head

It's not an uncommon occurrence for a lightning-in-the-bottle genre film to come out of nowhere and almost singlehandedly influence how similar movies are made from that point onwards. "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" most definitely fits the bill, especially now that it seems to have played quite a large role in its live-action brethren fully committing to the multiverse. MCU fans may want to insist that these plans have been in the works since the beginning of time itself, but let's just sa...

Edgar Wright Would Like To Play The 14th Doctor On Doctor Who [Exclusive]

Edgar Wright told me to write that headline.We're supposed to be talking about "Last Night in Soho," the director's stylish new horror movie (which I enjoyed very much), but I can't help myself. I've spent the pandemic finally giving in and watching "Doctor Who," the beloved and long-running science fiction series about an immortal time traveler and his many adventures across the cosmos.

The Unexpected Prop Star Trek Borrowed From Gilligan's Island

It's not unusual to hear of old movies or TV shows using recycled footage, props, or costumes. Whether it be Disney copying its own animated scenes in the 1970s, or "Blade Runner" salvaging helicopter shots and set elements from "The Shining" and Francis Ford Coppola's "One from the Heart" in the 1980s, productions have had to sometimes adopt a makeshift approach: utilizing whatever random resources they had available. This was the case with two classic TV shows from the 1960s, "Star Trek" and "...

Babylon 5: What New Fans Need To Know Before The Reboot

"Babylon 5" is on its way back, and that's a big deal for science fiction. Fans fell in love with creator J. Michael Straczynski's experiment, a five year mission to tell one epic tale in a way that no other television series had yet accomplished. It paved the way for future successes like "Westworld," "LOST," and "Battlestar Galactica." It was an ambitious project for Straczynski, a screenwriter who's already made our childhoods special with "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" and "The Rea...

Star Trek 4: Everything We Know So Far

It's nothing short of criminal that by far the best film from the recent "Star Trek" trilogy, "Star Trek Beyond" back in 2016, remains the last film we ever received from the franchise on the big screen. Is that a bit hyperbolic? The reality is that Paramount's obvious hesitance and uncertainty over where to take the franchise next is actually pretty understandable, as "Beyond" didn't make quite enough at the box office to offset its budget. (Which feels like a budgeting issue to me, but I'm no ...
