April 19: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Hayden Christensen was given the unforgivable task of playing Darth Vader during his "Wonder Years."  For better or for worse, he did the best he could with his skills and the limitations of the material.  I know folks who don't even consider the STAR WARS Prequel films canon they dislike them that…

April 18: On This Day In Science Fiction History

On this day in 1938, sci-fi and superhero history were made when what is accepted as the very first appearance of the Last Son of Krypton himself -- Kal-El -- came to fruition.  Yes, it was cover-dated as June, 1938, but everyone knows that comics street much earlier than what they…

April 17: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Wrestling veteran Roddy Piper tried to take the 'Arnold Schwarzenegger' route into filmdom by securing himself a couple of sci-fi flicks as starring vehicles.  Unfortunately, THEY LIVE! and HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN were too low budget (though interesting ideas) to be much more than cult films.  But, as they…

April 16: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Now, don't hate me folks when I say that, in my humble opinion, there's an awful lot of stuff about STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION's first season that is highly forgettable.  That's the case with far more shows than just those which are part of our franchise.  Still, if you watch closely, every now…

April 15: On This Day In Science Fiction History

The actor who played Charlie X himself grows another year older as Robert Walker Jr (1940) celebrates a birthday today.  His episode was actually one of the first ones I remember seeing; that's not necessarily a surprise, but what is surprising is how his story of…

April 14: On This Day In Science Fiction History

When I was a kid, one of the coolest things I could find on the TV dial was Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds (and, no, I'm not speaking about that God-awful Bill Paxton reboot movie that only had the cajones to features the Tracy Family as secondary characters).  It had enough action &…

Steel City Con -- Pittsburgh, April 2014

I attended Steel City Con yesterday in Pittsburgh, PA. While Jonathan Frakes and Brent Spiner where there from Star Trek: TNG, it was Lee Majors from Six Million Dollar Man who most impressed me with a Q and A session that was pure class…

April 13: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Ron Perlman is just a legendary guy.  He's been HELLBOY, after all.  Plus, he's guest starred in a whole host of terrific genre projects, including the oft-maligned STAR TREK: NEMESIS.  Today, Mr. Perlman celebrates turning another year older, another year wiser.…

April 12: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Even with its modest ruminations and commentary on the state of mankind's demise, MAD MAX is at best little more than a revenge picture set with a mild sci-fi premise.  It premiered theatrically on this day in 1979 in the land down under…

April 11: On This Day In Science Fiction History

While the Buster Crabbe version of BUCK ROGERS may not be everyone's cup of tea, it definitely deserves celebrating.  Those early serials served as the inspiration for so, so many of sci-fi's greatest storytellers that they should be rediscovered with each new generation of children or sci-fi fans, at least.…

April 10: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've taken an awful lot of flack over the years for being a big supporter of the 1980 cheesy interpretation of FLASH GORDON.  What can I say?  I know what I like, and I like FLASH GORDON's insufferable goofiness.  It works for me on so many levels.  In any event,…

April 8: On This Day In Science Fiction History

I've mentioned before that I wasn't one of the many fans who went gaga over all things new-fangled BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.  When all is said and done, I do still prefer the simplicity of the original over Ron Moore's reboot, and…

Second Uniform started

First thing I did was clear a space for the work.

Then checked the patterns before laying them down on the black or teal fabrics. I used yellow chalk (didn't have white, which would work just as well; it's kids chalk, used for outside on concrete surfaces and worked fine on the fabric and washed out nicely) to outline the pattern pieces instead of pinning them to the fabric. That saves the pattern from being torn every time one used the pins.

Once the pattern…

April 7: On This Day In Science Fiction History

During his stint on our plane of existence, Stan Winston did many things to establish the 'street cred' of science fiction films, but his single greatest contribution -- so far as this sci fi enthusiast is concerned…

April 6: On This Day In Science Fiction History

Within all of human history, there are benchmarks, and there are hallmarks.

 

“Benchmarks” indicate a high-water mark – a new zenith, a new line drawn in the sand for others to meet or cross – while “hallmarks” are achievements…

Star Trek: Nemesis. Come on, it wasn't THAT bad!

Maybe its because I hated Insurrection so much that Nemesis never struck me as the worst movie in the series. It had good action, good effects, and Bane...I mean Shinzon, was an interesting heavy, although even after 12 years, I'm still a little fuzzy as to just what his motivation was. 

All in all, I'd say that Nemesis was a good movie that could've been great. It'd be interesting to see what it would've been like, had the writers given the script 1 more draft.
