A 2012 Parsec Finalist

Welcome to the SciFi Rewind: Back to the Future II

Tonight we discuss a movie that is often overlooked when it comes to the greatest science-fiction movie lists. We are discussing Back to the Future II. We talk about some of the technical aspects of the movie, but also delve into some of the most memorable performances, scenes, and some of our favorite quotes. We also discuss what it got right and what it got wrong. We would love to hear your thoughts about this movie.

Back to the Future II

Marty McFly has only just gotten back from the past, when he is once again picked up by Dr. Emmett Brown and sent through time to the future. Marty’s job in the future is to pose as his own son to prevent him from being thrown in prison. Unfortunately, things get worse when the future changes the present.

Tonight’s Show:

Jim Arrowood and M. interview Walter Doty, Write for Star Trek Captain Pike, and Todd Shawn Tei, Director, Writer, and Actor for this project. We at the SciFi Diner have always supported fan projects.  Quite frankly we just want to see more Trek. If you are with us in this and like what you hear in our discussion with the creators of this project, then please visit their indigogo campaign and support the project. You can also follow them on their facebook page and their twitter.  Below you can read a description of the project from their indigogo page.

  • This is the story of Captain Pike when he first takes command of the Enterprise and his first mission aboard her. And with your help, it will lead into a Captain Pike Web Series.

Christopher Pike is the Captain seen in the original Star Trek Pilot “The Cage”, played by Jeffrey Hunter. He was Captain of the Enterprise before Captain Kirk. And his story has never been told in film, until now.

In the original Star Trek Pilot, “The Cage”, set in the year 2254. Captain Pike and his crew are returning from Rigel VII, where several members of the landing party were killed by the inhabitants.

The incident filled Pike with so much guilt that he is considering resigning his commission. But that’s all we know about Captain Pike, and we want to know so much more. Don’t you?

  • This is an independent film project that will be helmed by professionals who all work in the entertainment industry. From cast and crew to writers, director, producers and actors.

THE LEAD CAST OF “CAPTAIN PIKE”

In our film, we will answer these questions about Captain Pike:

1. What happened on Pike’s first mission with his female first officer, and his science officer, Mr. Spock?

2. Did Pike ever go into battle?

3. Which alien race did he encounter before any other Starfleet Captains? We know Captain Pike’s father is Admiral Josh Pike, but we never learned about the Admiral and which starship he commanded.

We never learned about many of the federation Captains that we saw in Star Trek TOS or their descendants.

In this film, we’ll answer all the questions you’ve always wondered about. And you’ll see many famous Starfleet officers at the beginning of their illustrious careers.

 

A Nerd Is Never Satisfied

flashI had not so kind words for The Flash during its first 5 episodes and then it grew on me just a little. By the end of the season it went for me from not sure about this too saying it just ok for me it has a ways to go. But then for Gotham I loved it right off the bat but it took a lot of hits in social media news outlets and bloggers and more. But with some fine acting and well told story people came around and it grew. So for all of us nerds geeks or just fans, it all boils down to perception and how it is perceived in our own minds and there is the problem. But hey were humans and that’s what we humans do.

On this podcast, we talk about the Squee Fan Girl Project which you can find out about here. We also discuss Hot Topics acquisition of ThinkGeek.  We wind up our discussion with whether or not infantilism has struck pop Science Fiction, a discussion based on an article by Simon Pegg.  We share our short interview with Timothy Zahn and end with the top five Simon Pegg movies. Please excuse the audio.

Timothy Zahn

IMG_9201_2Zahn’s novella Cascade Point won the 1984 Hugo Award. He is the author of the Blackcollar trilogy and the Cobra series (seven novels so far), ten Star Wars Expanded Universe novels, including seven novels featuring Grand Admiral Thrawn: the Thrawn Trilogy, the Hand of Thrawn duology, Outbound Flight, and Choices of One.

LucasFilm at times referred to some of the more detailed Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game supplements from West End Games, and when Timothy Zahn started work on a new trilogy of Star Wars books, boxes of West End sourcebooks were delivered to him. At the time, Zahn was writing what would become known as the “Thrawn Trilogy”, the first book of which was Heir to the Empire (1991). In turn, West End released sourcebooks for Zahn’s three novels from 1992-1994.

The Thrawn trilogy marked a revival in the fortunes of the Star Wars franchise, bringing it widespread attention for the first time in years; all three Thrawn-trilogy novels made the New York Times best-seller lists,[3] and set the stage and tone for most of the franchise’s Expanded-Universe content. Zahn also wrote the young adult Dragonback series and the popular Conquerors’ Trilogy.

Welcome to the SciFi Diner’s Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

Tonight we discuss the highly anticipated movie Avenger’s: Age of Ultron and boy do we we spoil the heck out of it.  We blame Jim (mostly) who joined up from the Dune Saga Podcast and the Babylon Project Podcast.  We discuss the entire experience: from where we saw it, to the trailers that played before, and then walk through the entire movie scene by scene.

Age of Ultron: Synopsis

When Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) jump-starts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go terribly awry, forcing him, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) and the rest of the Avengers to reassemble. As the fate of Earth hangs in the balance, the team is put to the ultimate test as they battle Ultron, a technological terror hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they encounter two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro and Wanda Maximoff.

Welcome to the SciFi Rewind: Back to the Future

Tonight we discuss a movie that is often overlooked when it comes to the greatest science-fiction movie lists. We are discussing Back to the Future. We talk about some of the technical aspects of the movie, but also delve into some of the most memorable performances, scenes, and some of our favorite quotes. We would love to hear your thoughts about this movie..

Back to the Future is a 1985 American comic science fiction film. It was directed by Robert Zemeckis, written by Zemeckis and Bob Gale, produced by Steven Spielberg, and stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Crispin Glover and Thomas F. Wilson. Fox plays Marty McFly, a teenager who is sent back in time to 1955. He meets his future parents in high school and accidentally becomes his mother’s romantic interest. Marty must repair the damage to history by causing his parents-to-be to fall in love, and with the help of scientist Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown (Christopher Lloyd), he must find a way to return to 1985.

Netflix’s Dare Devil Is Eerily Similar to NBC’s The Cape But Way Better.

ddI think it goes without saying that one of the hottest superhero shows on television is actually not on a network. It is on Netflix. Much better than Ben Affleck’s movie, Dare Devil is dark, edgy, and wonderfully done.

In some ways, it is very similar to NBC’s The Cape.  You may not remember, but David Lyons from ER starred in The Cape, which lasted about 10 episodes before it got the ax. In The Cape David Lyon plays games Vince Faraday, a character that becomes his son’s superhero in order to save his city. That last phrase should sound familiar as it is echoed on Dare Devil numerous times. The premise is actually even more eerily similar.After all, Faraday becomes  The Cape to free and keep his city from the crime Mongols that are trying to take over it, run by a crime lord name Chess.The Cape

The Cape was much more stylized as a superhero show. It was also not based on an actual superhero in the Marvel or DC universe. The writing for it certainly was wanting at some points, and a times a bit week. And while I enjoyed it while it was on TV, it fell to what we called the Summer Glau curse. Even she could not the Cape, the series “big damn hero”.

Dare Devil, the Netflix adaptation, comes across much darker and grittier. Here we have a hero that has become a hero because of his connection to the the city, in particular the section of the city called “Hell’s Kitchen”. He battles his nemesis William Fisk as a masked crusader by night.  During the day, he is Matt Murdock, the son of a failed boxer and a devout Catholic whose moral code won’t allow him to kill anyone.

There are some parts of the show, especially when they focused on the backstory of William Fisk, that I almost can’t watch. Whereas The Cape was perhaps a more family friendly show, this show definitely not family-friendly. Nevertheless Dare Devil absolutely rocks. The writing is tight and believable. The character development of how Matt Murdock became the Dare Devil is believable. And even the episode that deals with his mentor is pretty fricking awesome.

I know some of you may not be Netflix subscribers, but it is worth the cost of the couple movie rentals from Redbox to get Netflix for just one month; you can even sign up for their free trial just to watch Dare Devil. It is the best superhero show that is on TV right now. For those you like Marvel’s: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., you haven’t seen anything yet.

The United Earth Oceans Organization enlists Captain Nathan Bridger and the submarine seaQuest DSV to keep the peace and explore the last frontier on Earth. [Roy Scheider, Jonathan Brandis, Don Franklin, Ted Raimi, Stacy Haiduk, Stephanie Beacham]
  3. The Lone Gunmen (2001) Spin-off of The X-Files featuring the trio of computer-hacking conspiracy geeks popularly known as The Lone Gunmen. Like a misguided Mission Impossible team, they embark on a series of comic adventures that simultaneously highlight their genius and ineptitude. [Bruce Harwood, Tom Braidwood, Dean Haglund, Zuleikha Robinson, Stephen Snedden]
  4. First Wave (1998-2001) Framed for murder and on the run, a former thief struggles to expose the vanguard of an alien invasion with the help of a conspiracy theorist and newly discovered prophecies of Nostradamus. [Sebastian Spence, Rob LaBelle, Roger R. Cross]
  5. Sliders (1995-2000) A boy genius and his comrades travel to different parallel universes, trying to find their way back home. [Jerry O’Connell, Kari Wuhrer, Sabrina Lloyd, John Rhys-Davies, Cleavant Derricks]
