Live Action Akira Fan-Made Trailer is Awesome!

When I was growing up there were two types of Anime Fans.  The kind that understood Akira (or claimed they understood it) and those that didn’t. It was almost like a test when you were asked “Do you understand Akira?”  You only got one chance at it.  You didn’t come to understand Akira later – you just understood it, or you didn’t. If you said yes you were met with…

TMNT star Ernie Reyes Jr. in Need of Kidney Transplant

He was the adorable bratty King Tam in Red Sonja who eventually learned his lesson in humility and was willing to risk his life to try and save Sonja in the end.  He was also the actor in the Donatello suit in TMNT 1 before becoming pizza delivery boy Keno in TMNT 2 (of course we’re talking about the 90s movies).  And while he spent most of his time rescuing…

When Gay Meets Geek

Growing up when I did there were no openly gay characters in comic books, science fiction, or fantasy.  In every story the boy got the girl; unless it was one of those rare storylines where the protagonist was female.  In those cases she got the boy. As I got older and realized I was gay, I searched desperately for someone like me in the fantasy worlds I loved.  Eventually I…

Professor of Bone Structure Gives Us a Look Inside Pikachu

I don’t know if many of us have wondered what the bone structure of a Pikachu looks like, but Professor Takashi Oda of Seian University of Art and Design, who has an impressive background in bone studies and has published several books of dinosaur skeleton illustrations, received a request from his students and produced these sketches.  And they are pretty cool!  

"Who You Gonna Call?" Chris Hemsworth it Would Seem

Director Paul Feig tweeted “Our receptionist” with the hashtag #whoyougonnacall and a picture of Chris Hemsworth yesterday. He joins the female driven cast of the reboot of Ghostbusters as their receptionist, the part originated by Annie Potts in 1984.  I wonder if they’re going to try and recapture that charming, socially awkward flirting that she and Egan had in the original. The reboot of Ghostbusters is due out July 22,…

A Day of Legendary Actors

Today the world is mourning the loss of the absolutely legendary Sir Christopher Lee. It seems it is not an uncommon date of the month to mourn legendary people.  John Wayne died June 11, 1979. And everyone’s favorite Interstellar Doctor, DeForest Kelley, died June 11, 1999. I grew up watching both the Westerns of John Wayne and Star Trek re-runs in the 80s on TV.  My father was a huge…

Renowned Actor Sir Christopher Lee Dies at 93

“I think acting is a mixture of instinct, imagination and inventiveness. All you can learn as an actor is basic technique.” – one of the most memorable quotes from Sir Christopher Lee. From his beginnings as one of the Horror Masters to James Bond, Star Wars to Lord of the Rings and even Heavy Metal singer, Sir Christopher Lee spanned the decades, generations, genres and mediums to become one of…
