November 3rd, 2009 12:07pm EST
Joss Whedon
Joss Whedon's bid to buy the Terminator franchise for $10,000 looks likely to fall flat - the sellers are asking for $70 million for the rights to the sci-fi series.

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator wrote an open letter to Halcyon Co. bosses after learning they were auctioning the franchise as part of the company's bankruptcy process. Offering the five-figure sum, he proclaimed, "I loved the movies, even the later movies. I loved the mythology. I loved the TV show (The Sarah Connor Chronicles) - like, really loved. Not for pretend."

However, Halcyon chiefs are hoping for a figur...

The Syfying Of Science Fiction Is Both Good & Bad

August 29th, 2009 2:00pm EDT
True Blood
Everyone seems really into vampires lately. Sexy vampires that have steamy vampire sex with each other all the time. If not vampires than it's people with psychic abilities (Psych) or people that travel through alternate dimensions. And that's just on television. These days a major blockbuster movie can't make a return without aliens (District 9), killer robots (Transformers) or wizards (Harry Potter). We live in a time where Quentin Tarantino is playing with alternate history (Inglourious Basterds) and weepy chick flicks are about time travel (The Time Traveler's Wife).

Unraveling The 'Terminator' Timeline: Your Cheat Sheet For 'Terminator Salvation'

May 21st, 2009 10:50am EDT
Terminator Salvation
Inevitably when sequels to popular movies come out, there are people who see the new movie that have not seen the previous ones in the series.

One of the most vital aspects in the "Terminator" story is time travel, which is a plot device present in all of the films. When introducing a complicated concept like time travel though, things can get confusing for viewers because of alternate timelines and time paradoxes.

If you haven't seen any of the "Terminator" movies but you want to see the new one, these ideas might sound complex to you.

Have no fear. I have come up with...

Review: 'Terminator Salvation' May Not Be The 'Terminator' Fans Have Waited For

May 20th, 2009 2:15pm EDT
Terminator Salvation
When I first heard there would be a fourth Terminator film, my reaction fell somewhere in between what it would be if they announced a seventh Highlander film and the announcement of a third Mannequin -- with Mannequin being on the higher level of excitement. Now that's not to say I didn't enjoy the hell out of the first two Terminator films, I did... a lot. But once James Cameron left the series, the third film, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, followed by the recently canceled The Sara Connor Chronicles, drifted the franchise in a direction I wasn't interested in. There seemed to be to...

Tori Spelling Responds To Weight Rumors And Family Drama

May 12th, 2009 9:52am EDT
Tori Spelling
Tori Spelling recently found herself on magazine covers again with speculation on her "dangerous" weight loss. She assures her fans, and her enemies, that she's perfectly healthy.

"At the end of the day I have two kids, a husband, that's my priority," Spelling said. "I have a lot of businesses to run. I don't have time to deal with whether they think I'm at the perfect weight or what they think I should weigh, but I want to be healthy for my children. When they start writing stories and criticizing you it starts to hurt because there are children involved. I think, my little Stella, sh...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

May 1st, 2009 10:06am EDT
Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

10 Reasons To Keep 'Chuck' On The Air

April 21st, 2009 10:30am EDT
There's been a lot of discussion about the fate of reluctant spy Chuck Bartowski lately. Of the other shows that were picked up in that ill-fated 2007-08 season, only CBS's sitcom The Big Bang Theory and the CW's soapy Gossip Girl have survived. Ouch. Worse, most of those shows, like Pushing Daisies, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Life met the axe this year (though the jury's still out on Life, it doesn't look good.) With Jay Leno taking over five hours of the NBC schedule a week (seriously, whose genius idea was that?), things aren't looking good for the once proud Peacock. Here are ten ...

Joss Whedon & JJ Abrams
Joss Whedon and J.J. Abrams have both played a significant role in fandom and overall media popularity.

Fox's Sci-Fi Fridays: The Look Of 'Terminator' And 'Dollhouse'

April 1st, 2009 11:33am EDT
Fox tried something very interesting this season - a lineup that seems like the kiss of death for two unusual shows. The Friday night time spot is usually reserved for shows that have no chance of seeing renewal. However, Friday nights have been taken over by a two-hour block of sci-fi with Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Dollhouse.

T: SCC is in its second season and still has a loyal fanbase eagerly awaiting further character and plot development (I'm talking to you, Jameron shippers), and while "Dollhouse" is still in its infancy, Joss Whedon fans are intrigued to dis...

Thomas Dekker's Painful Photo Session

February 12th, 2009 9:22am EST
Thomas Dekker
Heart-throb actor Thomas Dekker is building up his tough guy image - he broke his nose during a grueling photo-shoot and then smiled at the damage to his body.

The actor, who stars in hit TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, was beaten with a baton and brutally punched during the picture session. But he shrugged off the injuries and broke into a huge grin when he saw his face in a mirror, according to photographer Tyler Shields, who photographed the star for his new book, The Dirty Side of Glamour.

He says, "My vision for the shoot was I wanted Thomas to embody the t...

Will New Fox Series 'Dollhouse' Survive The Friday Time Slot?

February 12th, 2009 9:00am EST
Joss Whedon is a legend in his own right, known both for his offbeat sense of humor and his knack for writing strong female main characters. It's been a few years since his era of television gold ("Buffy The Vampire Slayer," "Angel," "Firefly") was on the air, but now he's coming back in a big way on the FOX network.

"Dollhouse" premieres February 13, starring Whedon alum Eliza Dushku (also from "Tru Calling") and sci-fi favorite Tahmoh Penikett ("Battlestar Galactica").

"Dollhouse" is about a hidden facility which creates a secret group of people nicknamed 'Dolls' or 'Act...

Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day)

Giovanni Ribisi

Before he started wearing guy-liner, Armstrong shared that dopey confused look with Ribisi. We suspected these two were the same person when we saw The Other Sister, but after hearing Ribisi's first line, we knew it was for real. They even sound the same!

Advantage: Ribisi because he's acting

'Prison Break' Premiere is Sloppy, Yet Satisfying

September 2nd, 2008 10:36am EDT
Prison Break
Ahh, the long awaited return of everyone's favorite over-the-top, unrealistic, yet incredibly entertaining television series. No, we're not talking about "24" folks (although Jack will be back soon enough), but rather its erstwhile Monday night partner in crime, the incomparable "Prison Break."

Last season ended abruptly thanks to that pesky strike, but those clever writers still managed to lay the groundwork for another spectacularly unrealistic year. What followed was a wildly uneven, yet ultimately entertaining premiere, which began as a muddled mess and by its conclusion had co...
