Bear McCreary made Battlestar Galactica and Caprica rock—so why shouldn't he do the same for the last NASA Shuttle launch in U.S. history?
Whatever you think about yesterday's verdict in the Casey Anthony trial, if you can't STOP thinking about it, we've got something to help you forget—because during times when reality seems to be losing a grip on itself, sci-fi can be the only relief.
Love it or loathe it, 3D in movies is here to stay, because Hollywood needs to attract warm bodies to the seats and tear folks away from their video game consoles and Facebook profiles. But there's nothing new about intriguing cinema gimmicks.
Sci-fi movies and TV are FILLED with lies—and we don't just meant the ones that Kirk told to get some of those green-skinned women into bed.
