Wil Wheaton gets weepy when Star Trek: Next Generation cast reunites

This past Sunday in a cowboy hat wearing city of Canada known as Calgary, the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation got together on stage for the first time in a looooong time. Not only were the seven principle cast members up there in front of 7,000 fans (Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, LeVar Burton) but so was fanboy enemy #1 himself, Wesley Crusher (Wil Wheaton) and even that dead sexcurity chief of the USS Enterprise, Tasha Yar (Denise Crosby).

It's a working Star Trek phaser

Star Trek has been more than a pop culture phenomenon; it's actually influenced technology and science, making what was once science fiction, science fact. While warp drive technology and the transporter aren't around to change our lives yet, today's smartphones can do more than Captain Kirk's communicator. There's even a working tricorder being developed.

Video: Pac-Man: The Movie

There's something wrong in the world of entertainment when fan-made films are of better quality than what Hollywood would make. The Pac-Man movie trailer/short film made by Steelhouse Studios is what happens when a creative group of people take a well-known property, like Namco's Pac-Man video game, and give it a high-powered cinematic treatment.

Before I watched their film, I would have thought there was very little that could be mined from Namco's Pac-Man game universe to make a movie from. After seeing this, I wouldn't call myself a full believer just yet -- but I've moved a lot closer towards thinking that a Pac-Man movie could work if it were executed similar to this.

Count the number of face punches in Road House

Watching Road House is not quite a guilty pleasure of mine; I'm not ashamed to say that I like it for what it is, something mindless, entertaining and absolutely implausible. Law enforcement doesn't seem to exist in the universe of Road House, which makes me suspect that it takes place a couple of states over from where the action in The Dukes of Hazzard is going down.

Back to the Future II hoverboard replica teased to ToyFair attendees

2015 is just three short years away. Unless the world sees some rapid technological discoveries in flying cars, 3D holographic, hydrated food and home fusion kits, I don't think that we're going to get to the same future world glimpsed in the 2015 scenes from 1989's Back to the Future Part II.

Coming soon: sex in a sci-fi themed brothel

Nevada is known as being America's state of vice. It's the only place in the union where one can gamble and also purchase sex legally. Its government licensed whorehouses have always tried to one-up each other to attract their customers by claiming to offer the prettiest ladies and opulent themed rooms, but now there's a new brothel opening up that wants to catch the eye of the sci-fi crowd.

Jaws ride to end at Universal Studios Florida

For 22 years a great white shark has terrorized tourists on a tram ride. Millions of patrons have ridden the Jaws theme ride at Universal Studios Florida, subjecting themselves to a mechanical shark that pops out of the water and snarls at them as they pass by. While the Jaws ride may not be as sophisticated as other newer ones, it still remains the best known experience on the Universal Studios tram.

Video: Aliens on Ice! The Musical

A talented group of Austinites have created what I would have never expected to witness: a musical retelling of James Cameron's Aliens, performed by the actors on ice skates. Let that sink into your cerebral cortex for a moment before I show you the video.

Oh yes indeed...there's a video.

The Thing meets Frank Sinatra

Four days from now we'll have our chance to see if The Thing prequel to John Carpenter's The Thing -- wait, now I'm confused....

Let me start that again. The new Thing movie is opening four days from today. The old Thing movie, the one released in 1982 which tells what happens after the events in the 2011 Thing movie -- both movies are called The Thing -- this new movie, it's...

Aw, crap. Why did they have to call both movies The Thing?

Does C-3PO have to shoot someone to get some respect in Star Wars?

I've known Kellvin Chavez from Latino Review for more than ten years. His site has broken a ton of exclusive scoops, and him and his team do a great job at reporting the news. I'm also friends with him on Facebook, which is where this story begins.
