News & Stuff

This week’s DVD write-up has been posted over at CinefantastiqueOnline, and we’ve got an overpriced Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Bluray, the latest paranoid-tech thriller Eagle Eye, and the latest from Ricky Gervais, Ghost Town.

We’ve also had word of several deaths in the last week from Arbogast’s blog (the Scribe’s one stop shop for the celebrity death roll), including Majel Barrett-Roddenberry at age 76. The Sci-Fi keen amongst us will fondly remember Barrett from Star Trek; not just from her reoccurring role as Nurse Christine Chapel (and as the voice of the Enterprise’s computer for just about every subsequent manifestation of the show) but as the nearly forgotten First Officer of the Enterprise under Capt. Pike in the original pilot. We’ll also be taking advantage of a much needed holiday break to catch up on several Christmas Day releases, including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Valkyrie, and prepare a best of the year list.
