Our story: 10 awesome geek protest signs seen at the Wisconsin Capitol rally

Your best comment: The Stormtroopers cannot be Unionized. First they are military and fallow all orders. Second there is no way you can get a collective bargening negotiation with Vader or the Emperor for anything.
Trooper; "We want a cost of living increase, guns that shoot strait and better vending mechines in the new Death Star."
Emperor waves his had; "You are willing to take a steep pay cut. Your current equipment is fine. You like the RC cola vending mechines."

Our story: Nathan Fillion and Firefly's writers are ready continue the show

Your best comment: I like Castle and I don't want to see it canceled because Nathan left for a new series. BUT!! I would much rather see more movies of Firefly. That way he and everyone else can still have their day job. And the powers that be could drop more money into each movie "episode" for bigger names, bigger explosions and some more "R" rated action with Miss Baccarin. :) Maybe? — Ken

er bill are you saying that garfield 2 doesn't count as a sequel then??? — Mike


Our story: EXCLUSIVE: Terrifyingly creepy trailer for James Wan's Insidious

Your best comment: I think it looks about as good as any other supernatural horror movie in the last 10 years or so. It could be good, but it doesn't seem that original so far. I got the Poltergeist vibe too, but in Paranormal Activity the people were haunted not the house so its not really that different except it looks more like a film and we might actually get to see whats haunting them this time. — w0lfm4n

Our story: Epic Thor trailer explodes with Asgardian action and new footage

Your best comment: I don't know about you but I find the fact that I get to see Thor, Captain America, X-Men First Class, Green Lantern and more all in one year very exciting. Who ever thought we'd get blockbuster mainstream movies of our favorite comic characters, way back when we were growing up. (I'm 45) — Blade


Our story: 9 terrifying vengeful movie angels who aren't that angelic

Your best comment: Christopher Walken! He's just so d@mn cool it hurts! Tilda was very good but then she like Walken always is, and Dogma was a fun movie, loved it! Looking forward to seeing "Gabriel" mentioned above, had never heard of that. Love when Sci/Fi has these kinds of posts, I hear about movies didn't know about to add to Netflix queue. — M
