Happy Birthday, Mark Hamill!

September 25th, 2011

Hard to believe, but “Luke Skywalker” is sixty years old today.  Hamill may have not gone on to huge movie fame like his Star Wars co-star Harrison Ford, but a look at his IMDB entry lets you know he has been plenty busy doing voice work for animated programs.  Looking at his resume, I get […]

Check out the short film by District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, which some are claiming is a viral ad campaign for his mysterious full-length Elysium movie project of which we know little except that it is going to be “sci-fi.” If all goes well, we might see a feature film by 2012.

Irvin Kershner RIP

November 29th, 2010

Today gives us another big loss to the Sci-Guys, Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back, has passed away at the age of 87. I really hope that “comes in threes” business isn’t true.

Leslie Nielsen RIP

In Las Vegas over the weekend? Then stop by 66 Spectrum Blvd. for an auction of galactic proportions. Star Trek: The Experience was in the LV Hilton until 2008, but now a piece of it can be in your home tomorrow! Click here or the pic for more details.

4chan meme, Pedobear, used to ID Internet loli-trollers has mistakenly been grouped with the Vancouver Winter Olympic mascots. Oops. We thought the Olympics would be a black hole for Sci-Guys news…but we were wrong. The full story is here.

Sci-fi issues a one-two punch to the secular world as not one, but two icons are knighted by none other than the Queen herself. Both Peter Jackson and Patrick Stewart add “Sir” to their monikers. Kinda classes the place up a bit. Could Sci-Bot 9000 be next? We are not holding our collective breath. More […]

The Telegraph is reporting that one group of scientists now believe that comics can be just as valuable for children’s reading development as other forms of reading.  While many critics have long held that, due to their heavy graphical content, comics did not provide children with the same benefit as reading books.  However new research […]
