It's similar to the SPECTRE ring from From Russia With Love, which predates Hydra's first appearance in the comics by two years. Our strategic planner, Number Five, will be developing a plan to deal with this insult to SPECTRE.... » 3/27/15 6:32pm Friday 6:32pm

Oh sure, sure—it's all fun and games and "science" until you get some meteor shit on yourself and turn into some kind of crazy plant person and everything you own is covered in funky alien moss. » 3/27/15 9:12am Friday 9:12am

Cameron will build a real miniaturization device inspired by the one in the 1966 SF movie Fantastic Voyage and take a submarine in for location shots like he did on Titanic and his underwater documentaries. It will be amazing. Kind of disturbing. But amazing. » 3/26/15 11:27am Thursday 11:27am

I hadn't seen this cover before now... that's amazing, especially in the context of the recent controversy over Albuquerque's not-too-well conceived Batgirl variant cover. This is a helluva way to reference Killing Joke without demeaning Barbara Gordon. » 3/25/15 3:15pm Wednesday 3:15pm

"Manipulated and abused"? I don't think so—I mean, I completely agree the Rebel Alliance was evil; but they were evil because they unleashed those bloodthirsty monsters upon the galaxy. It was terrible enough that the Ewok isolation was shattered by the Empire and Rebellion making contact with the brutal savages—but… » 3/24/15 11:17pm Tuesday 11:17pm

"It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so…

A long, long time ago, ghost stories were about the memories of locations, and they often weren't in-your-face scary. Often they had a somber, sad feeling. An uncanny quality, as opposed to what you see in what so often passes for ghost stories now. (I love the films Poltergeist and Ghostbusters, but they may have… » 3/23/15 1:59pm 3/23/15 1:59pm

I'm imagining what an impossible rogue nation must be like. Basically right now I'm envisioning something kind of like North Korea, only with wizards, gnomes and ruled over by an evil unicorn. » 3/22/15 1:44pm 3/22/15 1:44pm

I lost whatever respect I had for McGinnis when I read Cruel Doubt, which more-or-less blames Dungeons & Dragons for the homicide of a possibly abusive stepfather by a stepson who also just coincidentally stood to benefit financially from the death of said stepfather, who was fairly wealthy. » 3/20/15 11:03pm 3/20/15 11:03pm

During the day, please remember that your natural territorial instincts should be kept in check unless you're really, really keen on eventually fighting James Spader to the death. » 3/20/15 12:20pm 3/20/15 12:20pm

So Bruce Wayne is handing the title over to Briareos Hecatonchires, but will he wear some kind of costume or just walk around looking like he always does? » 3/10/15 8:55am 3/10/15 8:55am

I'm sorry, you can't cover everything wrong with The Room in less than 99 minutes, the feature's total running time. (Okay, slight exaggeration: the closing credits are probably fine and I'm not sure how long they last, so... let's say 94, 95 minutes?) » 3/09/15 1:03pm 3/09/15 1:03pm
