Transformers 4….. O… M… G… !

I really did not know what to think when they said they were making #4 but this looks impressive.

Computer Hacking Rules (as learned from the movies)

Source: io9

1. One of the hackers must take over every channel on TV and deliver a speech that’s like a bad ripoff of a Max Headroom routine. They should scoff at the government, and use the word “sheeple.” Either that, or the hacker should have an underground viral video show that involves crazy stunts and hip hop music.

2. At some point Keanu Reeves must show up. Hopefully with a ton of data implanted in his head and a cyber-dolphin.

3. Every aspect of the plot will be better if you just append the words “virtual” or “cyber” to them. There will be “virtual terrorism” and “cyber war”. References to “e-bombs” a plus. Can you use a firewall to block the virtual terror downloads? Yes!

4. Hacking scenes will involve psychedelic user interfaces that look like something out of an early 1990s music video. Remember, hackers never use command lines. That is boring. Also, something should be controlled by a laser. Every form of physical security will have colorful, 3D interfaces too. There will be touch screens covered in sparkly numbers, retina scans, facial recognition, or holograms.

The Eleven Elite Rules of Movies About Computer Hacking


Stephanie Leonidas is Irisa (Defiance)


One of four children born in London, England, to a Greek Cypriot father and a British mother, Leonidas is not the only thespian in the family — her brother Dimitri Leonidas and sister Georgina Leonidas are also actors, whilst her other sister Helena is a teacher.

Leonidas started acting in community theatre when she was eight; at nine she acquired an agent and began to work in television.

Notable credits have included the television drama Daddy’s Girl, the soap opera Night and Day and a 2004 episode of Doc Martin in which she plays Melanie, a local Portwenn 15-year-old girl who develops an unhealthy fascination with the surgeon. More recently she has starred in Neil Gaiman and Dave Mckean’s MirrorMask in the dual roles of Helena and the Dark Princess, and a BBC adaptation of Dracula, as well as Crusade in Jeans. Her theatrical roles have included Adela in a production of Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba at Coventry’s Belgrade Theatre, and Dani in The Sugar Syndrome, staged at the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London, in 2003. In this latter production, reviewer Lizzie Loveridge said she gave a performance “way beyond her years”.

More recently, Leonidas has once again teamed up with Dave Mckean to work on a new film entitled Luna, which was expected to be released sometime in 2013. She has also recently starred in the BBC made for TV film Atlantis, which aired on BBC one and BBC one HD on 8 May 2011. In 2011 she was in a play for the Transatlantyk Festival called “Influence” and the play was written by Shem Bitterman; Leonidas was Sally, Branden’s girlfriend.

Is it True? David Tennant is returning…

This just in:

David Tennant is returning full time as The Doctor from 2014, in a story penned by RTD, who has been asked to return to Doctor Who following the departures of Matt Smith and Steven Moffat in the Christmas Special. It’s thought to be linked to the 50th and the Parallel Earth Doctor getting caught in a regeneration crisis that reverses the process. Details are only just coming to light, with Tennant confirmed for the 50th and now the Christmas Special, allowing Smith to follow his Hollywood dream, Moffat has been approached to write a major blockbuster film script involving, oddly enough, a time traveler.

Happy 49th Anniversary Doctor Who!

On this day 49 years ago, the Doctor first appeared on TV screens across the UK. 10 regenerations and nearly 800 episodes later and Doctor Who remains the longest running and most successful sci-fi TV show in the world!

In 1963 the BBC broadcast that thrilling and otherworldly theme music for the first time and viewers were introduced to the Doctor and his incredible TARDIS. At the close of the episode his time machine left present day Earth far behind and began a journey, a journey that introduced the world to Daleks, Cybermen, Time Lords and the idea that bow ties really are cool. It’s a journey that still goes on today and continues this Christmas with The Snowmen
