Book of Alien
In 1979, director Ridley Scott revolutionized the sci-fi genre with his landmark film Alien. The movie’s realistic future mixed with Swiss artist H.R. Giger’s grotesque alien design, terrified viewers. Using Scott and Giger’s work as a foundation, James Cameron created the action-packed sequel Aliens in 1986. Although Cameron’s film concentrated less on horror, he introduced equally grounded and imaginative technology to the same universe.

Sadly the franchise declined with the following sequels, Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection. However this weekend, Ridley Scott hopes to revitalize science...

Over the years James Cameron has developed a serious reputation for himself, and whether or not this will help or hurt his latest project "Avatar" remains to be seen.

Best Space Movies

6/12/2009 9:53am EDT
The subject of space is a difficult one in terms of selecting films. Qualifying elements are somewhat subjective. Does the film have to take place in space? Must it include aliens? Does a mere reference to space, or different planets, make it a "space" film? In short, is it merely a subgenre of science fiction? Space and science fiction, while not mutually exclusive, can occur without the other.

In celebration of the release of one of the newest and most promising space films, Moon, check out a brief list of our favorite space films. What you will find below is a mix of films t...

'Heroes' Recap: Plot Makes No Sense, Hiro Acts Out Of Character

10/14/2008 10:28am EDT
Last night's episode of "Heroes" began with a recap of last week's episode. It didn't get much better from there. Nathan slept with Tracy. It escalated from a kiss to sex very quickly, and Nathan's voice-over was quick to point out how fast his life is moving. Like "a speeding train" was the obvious metaphor used. He's questioning his life and his purpose, asking if he's an angel or a monster, a hero or a villain. He asks, "Why can't I see the difference?" The audience might be asking why they're watching this show at this point. Or why the writers can't tell a good script from a bad one? S...
