FINALLY! The episode Danny! and Tim have been waiting for since the inception of Double Murder: THE EVIL DEAD!!! Does Sam Raimi’s 1981 cult classic, The Evil Dead, still hold up after all these years, or is our reverence based purely on nostalgia? Will Fede Alvarez’s 2013 remake become just another name of the long list of remake failures, or can it live up to the high bar set by the original? Did Tim get a quote from Star Trek: The Next Generation tattooed on his knuckles? Will Danny! butcher everyone’s names? Are you going to listen all the way to the end of the episode?

With Star Trek: Into Darkness about to hit theaters in a few weeks (May 17), and recent talk about whether or not Cloverfield 2 will ever happen (it’s dead in the water unless JJ Abrams is inspired by Pacific Rim?), “Pet Sock” decided to imagine what it would be like if two of Abrams’ monsters met in battle.

Now, you should know that I’ve seen more music videos this year than I had well balanced meals. Seriously, I’m watching them constantly.

And with that in mind, I want to share with you my Top 10 Music Videos Of 2012! Head on below to check ‘em out! READ MORE
It’s been known for some time that Damon Lindelof (“Lost”, Star Trek Into Darkness) won’t be returning to script the sequel for Prometheus, and now we have an explanation as to why. This will no doubt please many of you who felt that Jon Spaihts’ original draft of the film, Alien: Engineers, was superior.
I can sort of respect his decision – he didn’t want to juggle too many things at once. He told Collider about his conversation with director Ridley Scott, “The thing about Prometheus was it was a rewrite. Jon Spaihts wrote a script and I rewrote it. And still it was a year of my life that I spent on Prometheus, kind of all in. The idea of building a sequel to it—from the ground up this time—with Ridley is tremendously exciting. But at the same time, I was like, “Well that’s probably going to be two years of my life.” I can’t do what J.J. [Abrams] does. I don’t have the capability. I’m usually very single-minded creatively. I can only be working on one thing at a time. So I said to him, “I really don’t think I could start working on this movie until I do this other stuff. And I don’t know when the other stuff is going to be done.” And he was like, “Well, okay, it’s not like I asked you anyways.” He and I are on excellent terms and it was a dream come true to work with him. But much to the delight of all the fanboys, I don’t see myself being involved in Prometheus-er.”
Head over to Collider for more. Prometheus made a good deal of money so the sequel is a somewhat high priority over at Fox. Who do you think should write it?
Star Trek is coming in early 2013 to the PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360 early next year. I’m pretty excited about the game. Ever since recently jumping into the Mass Effect series I’ve gotten an itch for space games. Hopefully Star Trek will scratch it good. The game features the voices of all the main cast from the recent Star Trek reboot. Check out some awesome new screens and art past the break.
Star Trek: The Next Generation? 25-years-young with passionate fans. Doctor Who? 50-years-young and currently enjoying a renaissance. Why haven’t these two series met before and blown fandom’s minds sooner? Well, wait no longer – Star Trek TNG/Doctor Who: Assimilation2 Volume 1 is upon us. And it’s not a sequel as the title may suggest, it is Assimilation “squared”. Reading through the book is like spending a weekend watching a season of either show in double time. This is is the first four issues collected of the eight-issue mini-series and it is off to a grand start. READ MORE

Star Trek stars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto will be making a comeback in video game form when they reprise their roles as Kirk and Spock in the upcoming Star Trek video game.
