The First Rule of Flying…

“Here’s how it is: The Earth got used up, so we moved out and terraformed a whole new galaxy of Earths, some rich and flush with the new technologies, some not so much. The Central Planets, them was formed the Alliance, waged war to bring everyone under their rule; a few idiots tried to fight…

What Firefly Means To Me (or Why I’ll Always Be A Browncoat)

  I came to the ‘Verse pretty late in the game.  I’d never been a fan of Buffy or Angel (I remember refusing to watch the former because it wasn’t Kristy Swanson in the title role), so I wasn’t an automatic viewer of anything Joss Whedon did just because it was Joss Whedon.  I was…

Forbidden Planet (1956)

  This time the 101 Sci-Fi movies brought me Forbidden Planet is smart science fiction. It has a sharp story, top notch acting, and the soecial effects are close to amazing! The starcscapes, the designs, the costumes, and of course Robby The Robot, continue to engage. A sequence featuring our stalwart captain JJ Adams (Leslie Nielsen)…

TIFF 2012: Much Ado About Nothing – Joss Whedon

  The announcement of this little flick’s arrival at TIFF this year caused quite a stir amongst many people I know.  Even I was curious as to what Whedon would have in store for us with this one, since I knew it was something he’d wanted to do for a long time, and that he’d…

Z*CON – The Movie!!!

Z*Con is a new indie film being produced by the same shiny folk who brought us the Big Damn Fan Film Browncoats: Redemption.  Based on the ‘Verse created by Joss Whedon in the (wrongly) cancelled Firefly series, and its follow-up film, Serenity, Redemption introduced us to a new crew with new problems faced in the months…

Wizard World Toronto Comic Con – Sue’s Thoughts

I’m just gonna put this out there right off the bat: I go to cons a lot. As often as financially possible, really. For the past several years, conventions and film festivals have kind of been my thing. And collecting things – prop replicas, toys and the like. Yep…I am a big nerd. More or…

Wizard World Comic Con Toronto

It was a pretty sweet weekend for Sue, and I. We had our first fan table at the Wizard World Comic Con here in T.O, and we had so much fun with it. Our mornings started with a quick chat and beverage with our fellow con -goers and exhibitors. That is an awesome and eclectic…

What Are You Doing This Weekend?

What are you up to this weekend? Sue and I will be manning our table at the Wizard World Comic Con here in Toronto this weekend!! If you’re there swing by the table and say hi! Sue and I would love to meet you. We’re planning to say hi to a couple of the folks…

Ringer Marks Sarah Michelle Gellar’s Return To The Small Screen

Let me preface this whole thing with a confession: I was never a fan of Sarah Michelle Gellar. I believe that I used to actually feel that I hated her as a performer, but looking back, that wasn’t really the case. I’d deliberately never watched anything that she was in, is all. It all started…
