As much as we love the wham-bam-pow of the Avengers fighting larger-than-life foes, sometimes we wish that we could have smaller Marvel movies, focused on what the characters do when they’re not punching robots. Here are our pitches for lower budget, character-driven movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Star Wars has had 40 years to build up countless sequels, imitations, spin-off series, games, novels, comics, you name it. But this idea for a new standalone movie could be the best — and most far-reaching one — we've seen yet.
James Marsh is an ordinary chemist, just keeping his head down and doing his job. But when he sees a murderer go free, he has to do something crazy. Something like . . . chemistry.
Could this be humanity's last century on the planet? Of course! Here are seven scientifically plausible ways that our species might die out sooner rather than later.
Pay attention, Syfy original movies gang and indie kaiju filmmakers. These are the animals we want to see in your next flick, eating cities and whirling trains around like nunchucks. They may come from the real world, but they look like they've already gotten the Roger Corman treatment.
The premise isn't too original, but the idea of casting Seth Rogen, Patton Oswalt and Will Ferrell is 100% wonderful.
It's not often that a person's life has the three-part structure of a perfect action movie. It's even less often that that person is a mathematician. That's why we need to really appreciate it when we see it. Enjoy the kickass action movie that was the life of Tartaglia
We all have ultra-high hopes for Marvel's Agents of SHIELD, the television spin-off of The Avengers. Will all the characters turn out to be Skrulls? We hope so. But if this show becomes a huge hit, the studios could decide to crank out more TV shows based on popular films. Here are the 10 worst TV shows that could…
One is the warden of the North, the Lord of Winterfell, and the incorruptible Hand of the King. The other is a genius playboy inventor, armored superhero and leader of the Avengers. But what if the beloved heroes from Game of Thrones and Iron Man were brothers? It might look kind of like this.
The history of science fiction television is full of shows that have a lot of wonderful stuff... but you just know they could be even more awesome if someone seized their raw potential with both hands. Which classic TV show do you wish you could personally make a new version of?
We were all impressed with the dramatic trailer for Gravity, with George Clooney weathering an explosion on an orbiting space station and Sandra Bullock spinning off into the void of space. Things like that make good cinema. There are other space crises, though, that will never get their own movies. Here are some…
We've seen not one but two modern reinterpretations of Sherlock Holmes in the last couple of years, plus countless procedural dramas, including forensic-themed shows like Bones and CSI. Meanwhile, TV audiences are utterly charmed by historical dramas like Downton Abbey and Boardwalk Empire. And just this summer, ABC…
Before the Battlestar Galactica reboot and Firefly, there was Titan A.E.. This post-apocalyptic animated feature about humanity's last hope was bookended by gorgeous space shots and a misfit crew of aliens. While the movie tanked at the box office, and didn't please everyone, we consider this cartoon a major classic.
We've made some criticisms of Syfy's choices recently — but it's important to be constructive as well. Which is why we want to encourage Syfy to give us more of the Roger Corman-powered monster movie goodness that we adore. We even have a suggestion for a monster that could be the next Sharktopus.
Sometimes when I watch a movie I fantasize that there is a slightly different (and better) movie going on right under the surface, which erupts only occasionally into the actual movie itself. I felt this especially acutely when I was watching the ending to the monster movie Sinister, which seemed to hint that another…

Thank you for purchasing CliffNotes: Wishbone - "Bark To The Future," an educational guide for those readers requiring assistance in understanding the fundamental plot points of H.G. Wells' science fiction novella The Time Machine, as depicted in the defunct 1990s PBS children's show Wishbone (ages 5-12).
Yesterday, director Peter Jackson announced that he will expand his cinematic adaptation of The Hobbit — J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved morsel of fantasy fiction — into three separate films.
Every now and again I miss grad school, despite the fact that my fondest memories involved drinking, watching Lost before it became completely godawful, or some combination thereof. Still, the urge to fashion an essay of substantive academic merit silently looms over me, like the world's least exciting poltergeist.…
