Nowadays you can often see a cheap movie at the theatre on Tuesdays for about $8-10. But in the ‘30s & ‘40s (and sometimes the ‘50s) you could see two movies and a serial (and a cartoon or travelogue) for a dime! (Of course, that’s probably $15 in today’s money…)
Terence Jackson shares his impressions of the ComicCon held in Manchester, UK, as well as Donald Manning’s photos of cosplayers who attended.
A Sci Fi scavenger hunt!
Tarzan, ERB’s most popular character, has gotten the film treatment since 1918; a handful of portrayals have stood out as true to the character. Will Skarsgard’s live up to the legacy?
Mr. Jackson apparently doesn’t know we’re not supposed to share our guilty pleasures!

Steve discusses both super and non-super flying heroes – Commando Cody, Captain Marvel and Superman. Who didn’t want a rocket pack when they were growing up? Towels worn as capes just don’t seem to be able to get the job done!
What do Captain America, Buck Rogers, Batman, Flash Gordon, the Green Hornet and Gene Autrey have in common? They’ve all appeared in serials!
This past year has shown us quite a lot in the world of film. Audiences are beginning to finally understand that pricey CGI-driven action clustercusses aren’t exactly worthwhile entertainment. As always, Hollywood is slow to […]

Over four decades Pat Mills has been a major force in keeping the British comics industry alive. I caught up with him to chat about the reappearance of one of his most enduringly popular characters, the Celtic barbarian, Sláine.
I won’t say it’s the best SF film I’ve seen lately—it’s certainly one of the best-looking, however; but it’s deserving of a second look if you’ve been hoping for a moderately good science fiction film to watch this summer.

Imagine the teaser trailer. Peeks at the iconic costume, a villain’s growled one-liner, the title looming suddenly out of the darkness with THIS CHRISTMAS or SUMMER 2014 beneath it. Imagine the interviews in Entertainment Weekly: […]
