Some time ago, we suggested a tournament of monsters, to see who would be the greatest villains in all of television and movie history. And then, like so many things, we promptly forgot about it. Because shiny things. So for this week, we’re going to try it out.
Here’s how it works; each [...]
Too much is made of Star Wars vs. Star Trek. That question, however, has been around for decades. Almost as long as The Professor has been professering. I think it’s time for a new question. One that moves us into the 21st century of sci-fi/fantasy. “Star Wars or Harry Potter? Wand or light [...]
Have you ever found yourself watching the science fiction space travel staple of your choice, and wondering just how fast the vehicle in that series universe would stack up against, say, your second favorite sci-fi space travel universe?

My significant other was watching some show this weekend regarding ultra-high-end home renovations, most of which featured a room which had cost over a million dollars. One of these quite tickled my fancy, because [...]

Some of us out there have perhaps been lucky enough to always get just exactly what we want for whatever winter holiday we happen to celebrate. If you were not so lucky, you might have an item that ranks as your most wanted gift never received. Once upon a time (1992), the city of Las Vegas, the downtown area in particular, had a chance to get a gift of absolutely awesome proportions, that likely has to rank pretty high on the list of ‘What Might Have Been’. Amazingly, this project was very close to coming to fruition, achingly close, but was not to be. The company behind it was The Goddard Group, is an entertainment design firm that does design, production and operations work for theme parks and other such tourist industries.
