My review of Dark Skies on http://www.popcults.com
Its true set sometime after the events of the 2008 film I want to Belive Mulder and Skully return this summer. X-Files fans everywhere are feeling fantastic by this news as this is something they have long hoped for.
Here is some cool X-files points I found on the wird site. the comic book of Season 10 will be published by IDW. Which is funny cuz 2 years ago they did a crowwover with the now defunct Wildstorm who owned the copyright tot he comic then. It was a 30 Days of Night cross over.
My review of the hot new game on http://www.popcults.com
The movies they show tomorow are a mix of the good the bad and The Reptilacus.

Horror survival in space is good bussines done right. With the release of Deadp Sace 3 and next week Aliens Colonial Mairnes this is a good time to mention Event Horizon. On this time line for this blog you can find old articles on Dead Space and coverage of the long over due Aliens Colonial Marines. Event Horrizon is a great scary fucked up movie staing Lawrence Fishburn and Sam Neil. Also Prometheus is not bad of a movies and I loved it. One rep for Sega last year said ACM would have some of the story elements in that game. Look for it from Gamestop next week.
Marines have a plethora of different weapons at their disposal, from the classic pulse rifle to the iconic flamethrower, from the smart gun and legendary weapons to explosives and assault rifle. All are fully customizable, just like the multiplayer characters, and all are selectable in your load out.
Certain weapons are great for close combat in tight environments but you might want to watch for sneak attacks when cornered. Xenomorph players can choose from 3 different classes when going into battle – Soldier, Lurker or Spitter - each with their own customizable attacks and looks.
But one thing is true for both sides – team work is key. If you go off on your own, you’re dead.
More info coming out about this great game and the multiplayer status
Yup the creator of Lost and Fringe and the direcor of Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness is going to direct Episode 7 of Star Wars
Some of the best Sci-Fi films ever made maybe but check out this article by James Guill
5 Best Classic Sci-fi Movies of All Time
Sci-fi films have captured the imagination of movie viewers for decades as filmmakers not only explore the mysteries of the universe, but also what it means to be human. While there are many great modern sci-fi films, there are many that contend that classic sci-fi films are still far superior over their modern day counterparts and even remakes. Below are our picks for the best classic sci-fi films of all-time.
Silent Running gets a spot on the top five list not because it has iconic space battles but because it takes a very “Star Trek” like approach to the environment. Freeman Lowell fights for not only his life, but for the survival of the forest in this film and ultimately gives up his life to protect the forest. The movie is a powerful message of conservation and survival that is perhaps more important now than when the film was made in 1972.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
The second of the Star Trek films is still considered the best among most trekkies. This Star Trek film works for two reasons. The first is that it is strictly an action film with big battles, larger than life characters, and the ultimate “death” of an iconic Star Trek character. The other is the performance of Ricardo Montalban. Many felt that his performance put the movie over the top and any other actor would have made the film second rate.
When we say Star Wars, we mean the original or Episode IV. It introduced the film franchise and is still the best of the nine Star Wars movies. Yes, there are nine if you include Clone Wars and the forgettable Ewok movies. From beginning to end, Star Wars is a epic space adventure filled with galactic battles, mysterious characters, and the force. The Death Star scene is still one of the best action scenes in all of sci-fi film.
Metropolis is the first great sci-fi film and is still one of the best. This look into the future was well ahead of its time and is still the bar that many sci-fi films aspire to. The best part about this is that it is a silent film and requires the watcher to engage themselves more than a typical movie ever could.
Planet of the Apes
The 1968 original is still the best of all the Planet of the Apes films. Starring Charlton Heston as George Taylor, he thinks that he has crashed on some distant plant but instead has been thrown into a future Earth that is ruled by apes.
The iconic final scene when Heston realizes just where he is remains one of the most powerful closing scenes in not just sci-fi but also in cinematic history.
