Tim Cook is many things: executive businessman, native Alabaman, multi-millionaire. Unfortunately, we can’t all be everything, and Tim recently revealed two things that he is most definitely not: an art historian and someone who makes good jokes.
If the current frontrunners in this year’s presidential race just don’t appeal to you, perhaps you’d like to really think outside the box. Seattle lawyer Andrew Basiago is also running for president, as an independent. And he cites his extensive experience traveling through time as one of his strongest qualifications…
Hello again! Sorry for last week’s absence, but you sure gave me a bunch of excellent letters, so it technically worked out for all of us. This week: Is Rey in danger from Episode IX director Colin Trevorrow? When is a time travel movie not a time travel movie? And most importantly, is Batfleck a Batcoholic?
I’m mad at Syfy. They gave me the first eight episodes of 12 Monkeys season two several weeks ago. And since I watched those episodes, I’ve been on tenterhooks. If you thought 12 Monkeys was fascinating and crack-like in its first season, then you’re going to have a problem when season two starts tonight. No spoilers…
This is kind of an insane longshot, but Gale Ann Hurd, who produced The Terminator and Terminator 2, told fans last weekend that it’s at least possible she will team up with original director James Cameron on a new Terminator film.
Most NYC subway riders are pretty blasé when panhandlers hit them up for cash between stations. When a panhandler announced he was collecting funds to build a time machine, riders chuckled at the odd request—until another man boarded the train and announced he was the inventor’s future self. He implored them not to…
Time traveling back into the past is almost always a bad idea. Everybody is racist, everything is dirty, and you’ll probably get some terrible disease and/or get stabbed with a sword that everyone is carrying but you. The world is generally dumber and worse off. And on top of that! You might not even be able to…
One of the very first scenes of 11.22.63 features a character explaining just what he has been doing with the awesome power of time travel: He’s been buying really good, really cheap meat from 1960 and bringing it back to the present to make hamburgers. No other character ever really manages to top that reason.
We’re coming up on the 20th anniversary of Twelve Monkeys, still one of the best time-travel movies. But we’re only just beginning to get to the bottom of what’s really going on in this film. There’s one wild, tantalizing theory that could explain Cole’s time-travel and the plague—watch us try to make sense of it!
River Song is arguably the most divisive character to come to Doctor Who in the past five years. She’s a swashbuckling archeologist who outwits almost everybody, and an unabashedly sexy older woman. She’s also so dependent on the Doctor as to be kind of a satellite.
Lisa Goldstein has an incredible track record as a fantasy writer, including the award-winning The Red Magician and the beautiful collection Travelers in Magic. Now she’s written a science fiction book about time travel, Weighing Shadows—and it’s just as mythic and strange in its own way.
I had some mixed feelings about tonight’s episode of Doctor Who. The plot of the episode (and the season) felt severely half-baked, to say the least, and great moments intermingled freely with a certain amount of WTF. But that ending? Was the greatest. That ending retroactively made the whole thing great.
Perhaps you’ve noticed all the fuss this week over Albert Einstein and his famous general theory of relativity, which turned 100 years old. Who better to give you a glimpse into what the theory is all about than a Time Lord — the Tenth Doctor himself?
Clara’s time on Doctor Who is coming to an end—no spoilers here—and it’s bumming us out. But she’s not the first companion to leave the Doctor’s side in a totally bummer fashion. Here are the 10 most depressing companion departures, until now.
Missed your chance to go to a theater and catch a marathon of all three Back to the Future movies today? You can either steal a time machine and go back to buy a ticket, or watch our handy 90-second video primer!
Tomorrow’s the day Marty McFly arrives from 1985, and we’re all gearing up to celebrate the anniversary of the best time travel movie ever made. But how much do you know about this time-travel classic? Here are 11 strange facts about the making of Back to the Future.
Everyone knows that the 2015 that Doc and Marty time traveled to in Back to the Future II was so much cooler than our 2015. They had hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers and flying cars and fusion reactors! We don’t have any of that. Instead we have bad fashion taste, global warming, selfies, Internet bullying and…
Season eight of Doctor Who had a pretty strong character arc for Clara, the ageless Doctor’s traveling companion. She started out distressed by the Doctor’s callousness, but then she learned to be more like him. And now it seems maybe she learned too well.
Strap the Roman visitor into the passenger seat of something like this.
If I had a chat with my future self it would go something like this: I’d ask him if I achieved all my hopes and dreams and he’d be totally bitter and would absolutely complain about how lazy I’ve been and all opportunities I’ve missed. The hero of this film has that kind of chat but, unlike me, he is able to confront…
