Firefly Cast

As it turns out, Captain Kirk is a Browncoat just like the rest of us.

Star Trek legend William Shatner has called out Fox, asking them to give us back (or at least sell it to someone!) Joss Whedon‘s prematurely canceled sci-fi western Firefly if they’re not going to use the property.

Shatner took to the Twitter recently to make the plea, which you can read below.

Blu-ray Review: Bad Dreams / Visiting Hours

Scream Factory Two-Pack: Bad Dreams / Visiting Hours

Bad Dreams
Blu-ray Double Feature
Director: Andrew Fleming
Cast: Jennifer Rubin, Bruce Abbott, E.G. Daily, Richard Lynch, Dean Cameron
Scream Factory
Rated R | 84 Minutes
Release Date: February 18, 2013

Directed by Andrew Fleming (The Craft), Bad Dreams sounds like a Nightmare on Elm Street rip-off, and it kind of is.

The 1988 film stars Jennifer Rubin (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors) as Cynthia, lone survivor of a cult’s mass suicide, who awakens from a coma 13 years later. Like Elm Street 3, Rubin’s character is in a mental institution surrounded by troubled kids who are plagued by bad dreams.

And like Elm Street 3, Rubin’s character is haunted by a burned boogeyman. In the film’s prologue, we learn that the members of the love cult Unity Fields sought “the ultimate joining” by dousing themselves with gasoline and committing mass suicide. Now the cult’s leader (Richard Lynch, Invasion U.S.A.) has returned to claim his final child.

Star Trek: The Original Series

Happy 47th anniversary to Star Trek! On September 8, 1966, the very first regular television episode of the series, created by Gene Roddenberry, premiered on NBC.

The episode that marks this anniversary is called “The Man Trap,” which introduced the world to the bridge crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise: William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk; Leonard Nimoy as First Officer Mr. Spock, DeForest Kelley as Dr. McCoy, George Takei as Sulu, and Nichelle Nichols as Uhura. Though other installments for the series had been produced and contained events that came before, “The Man Trap” was actually the first regular episode of the series to air on television.

You can watch the episode right now through Amazon’s Instant Video; you can also view it on the Season 1 Blu-ray or DVD.

Also, if you want more Star Trek (and you totally should), Amazon is having a Star Trek DVD/Blu-ray Sale right now where you can get all the movies for discounted prices.

DVD Review: The Captains Close Up

The Captains Close UpThe Captains Close Up
DVD
Directed by William Shatner
Starring William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks
Entertainment One
Release Date: August 13, 2013

No one ever involved with the Star Trek franchise has benefited from its enduring popularity and cultural legacy as much as William Shatner. And why shouldn’t he? This is Captain James Tiberius Kirk we’re talking about here, one of the most popular and recognizable heroic figures ever created. Shatner saw his own fortunes as a struggling young actor with great talent and promise rise considerably in the 1960’s when he signed on to play Kirk after the original pilot episode of Trek with Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike was poorly received. The show may have only lasted three seasons in the first place, the third of which was made possible by one of the most effective fan letter-writing campaigns in the history of civilization, but its countless television and feature film spin-offs helped the franchise become the cornerstone of a geek nation that stretches to every corner of the planet and one day possibly to worlds yet unexplored. Shatner is one of the show’s greatest champions, its most iconic character and star, and to this day continues on as a tireless promoter for Star Trek‘s undying themes and the power of its fans and alumni to inspire greatness in themselves and others. Plus, those residual checks must be pretty nice.

Most recently Shatner wrote and directed The Captains Close Up, a 5-part series for the cable channel Epix that expanded on the intentions of his 2011 documentary feature The Captains. Each of the five episodes were devoted to interviewing and profiling the actors who played Starfleet captains in the original Trek and its four television spin-offs and multitude of big screen sci-fi adventures. The entire series has been released on DVD courtesy of Entertainment One, and with a combined running time of two-and-a-half hours on one disc makes binge watching essential and well worth the time of any Trek devotee.

‘King Of The B’s’ Roger Corman Launching Paid YouTube Channel This Summer

Roger Corman

Roger Corman may be known to most as the premiere producer of some of the finest exploitation movies ever made, but to those in the know he is also one of the most important and influential figures in the entertainment industry. Many of Hollywood’s finest talents on both sides of the camera owe their careers in some part to the go-for-broke tutelage they were given by working for Corman, including filmmakers like Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Robert Towne, Peter Bogdanovich, and Ron Howard, and actors like Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Bruce Dern, and Robert Englund. Corman is a legend, and that is the undisputed truth.

This summer Corman is bringing a catalog of over 400 films he produced and/or directed to the vast cybernetic landscape of the Internet as he launches Corman’s Drive-In, a YouTube channel that will offer up his films for viewing for a fee still yet to be determined.

William Shatner Gorn Rematch For Star Trek: The Video Game

Last year, we posted an image from the upcoming Star Trek: The Video Game revealing what the Gorn would look like in the game, which will be available for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and for Download starting April 23, 2013. The Gorn species was introduced in the original Star Trek episode “Arena” and has since become a fan favorite.

In the 1967 episode, Captain James T. Kirk, played by William Shatner, is forced to battle the Gorn captain to the death. Now, in a new video created to promote the upcoming video game, Shatner has a rematch with the Gorn, reenacting their classic melee.

Hubble Discovers a Fifth Moon Orbiting Pluto - P5

Two previously unknown moons of Pluto, with the temporary names “P4” and “P5,” were recently discovered, and now the public has a chance to vote on what to name them!

One of the 21 proposed names on the ballot is Vulcan, which in the Star Trek universe is the name of Mr. Spock’s home world. Head over to the SETI website Pluto Rocks and cast your vote for Vulcan, which is actually in the lead right now, with Cerberus and Styx following close behind.

William Shatner, who played starship Captain James T. Kirk on the original Star Trek television series and movies, is actually the person who suggested that Vulcan, which is the name of the Roman god of lava and smoke, and the nephew of Pluto, be added to the ballot. Shatner has been tweeting the link out to plutorocks.com, urging his followers to vote for Vulcan, in hopes that the International Astronomical Union (IAU) will actually choose the name.

$5 MP3 Album Deal: William Shatner ‘The Transformed Man’

William Shatner

The Transformed Man, an “it has to be heard to be believed” recording by the irrepressible, incomparable actor William Shatner, is now available on MP3 format from Amazon this month for only $5.00.

Recorded during the original run of Shatner’s appearance as Captain James T. Kirk on NBC-TV’s Star Trek (in 1968) and certainly during a time when the way Shatner is perceived now (a legendary sci-fi maven and colorful larger than life figure) was still in its infancy stages, The Transformed Man has all that fun, pretentious, spoken word in a musical sense Shatner became famous for. Not holding anything back, and presented with a vocal swagger and patter that he’s as famous for as anything else in his illustrious career, The Transformed Man is a must for any fan of Shatner and his television and theatrical and literary musings.
