In a couple of days, Hollywood will unleash its latest fairytale movie on the world. The Huntsman: Winter’s War is the followup to Snow White and the Huntsman, one of many fairytale movies that missed the entire point of making such a movie in the first place. Is it even possible to make a decent live-action…
Put simply, Stardust is the best movie no one has seen. It managed to slip under a bunch of people's noses, most likely because of its name (it does sound pretty cheesy). Fortunately for you, that means this little treasure is something you can discover now. I hope you like fantasy.
We love happy endings. In fact, a big part of why we devour stories is to escape from reality, where endings are by definition unhappy. And a really wonderful happy ending can make you turn your bullshit detector all the way off. Here are 10 somewhat contrived happy endings we can't help falling in love with.
Son siete, y entre todas pesan apenas unas trillonésimas de gramo. Pese a ello, son un botín de valor incalculable que permitirá a la NASA estudiar más a fondo los procesos de formación de nuestro Sistema Solar. El hallazgo ha sido comunicado en una conferencia, después de años buscando esas partículas en el…
Stardust sounds magical enough as it is, but now scientists have for the first time observed that it contains water—which, in turn, could suggest that life is universal.
Most movie adaptations of fantasy books make disappointing changes to the source material — but over at Tor.com, Emily Asher-Perrin argues that Stardust is a rare exception. And she makes a strong case that Matthew Vaughn's adaptation of Neil Gaiman's book deserves to become a fantasy film classic.
Production studio PostPanic and director Mischa Rozema crafted this gorgeous bit of artificial space porn, Stardust, in memory of graphic designer Arjan Groot, who passed away in 2011. It envisions the journey of Voyager 1 as it moves ever farther from our sun and continues well beyond the lifespan of humanity.
Zombie movies are a dime a dozen, and Exhibit A Pictures, the folks behind the Star Wars documentary The People Vs. George Lucas are out to find out why. If you'd like to know the answer, you can toss a few dollars their way. You can also crowdfund a gorgeous coming-of-age short film, a figurine of one of the Golden…
This is Stardust, NASA's comet hunter about 312,000,000 kilometers from Earth. Yesterday, they ordered her main engines to burn at full throttle until they consumed all the available fuel, and then turned off her radio. But why?
On February 14 NASA's Stardust spacecraft had a close encounter with the comet Temple 1. For the first time in history, we got to visit a comet two times—a strange opportunity that allowed scientist to see how these space objects change.
In 2005, NASA's Deep Impact probe shot an 800-pound subsidiary probe into the comet Tempel 1. Now, six years later, the new Stardust probe has returned to the comet to see our handiwork. But this isn't just about proving humanity can leave its mark anywhere in the cosmos - the artificially created crater kicked up…
The superheroes in Kick-Ass don't have super-powers or fantastical technology, but they're not regular people. They're psychopaths, severely damaged and mentally shredded. The same, Kick-Ass suggests, goes for the whole superhero genre and those who love it. Minor spoilers below.
In 2006, a NASA spacecraft returned to Earth with samples that scientists hoped might contain cosmic dust, a byproduct of star formation. They let the public look for the elusive particles online. A squinting citizen might have just found one.

On one hand, the Stardust Table reminds us that furniture can be recycled through the simple integration of new technologies. On the other, it costs about $15,000 and is ugly as sin.
Score another point for exogenesis, the idea that life on Earth has extraterrestrial origins. For the first time, NASA has identified amino acids in a sample of material from a comet, suggesting a comet may have brought proteins to Earth.
Stardust is a set of sofas and pillows that illuminate from within. Add a rotating disco ball, lava lamps, and a couple of awesome Philips LivingColors lights, and your psychedelic apartment will be complete.
This lightweight furniture by Meritalia is so light you can pick it up with one hand, and so light that you can probably read by it. Designed by Mario Bellini, and made of plastic "ravioli," the stuff often found in packaging, LEDs and inox wire, Stardust furniture can be used by the pool, in the pool (well, it says…
Stardust writer/director Matthew Vaughn will write and direct the big-screen adaptation of Mark Millar's Kick-Ass, which bills itself as "The Greatest Superhero Comic Of All Time," but is actually dull, hyper-violent and devoid of superheroics. Maybe the addition of Robert DeNiro in drag will elevate Kick-Ass to its…
