Paul McGann stars in a 2004 Doctor Who fever dream

I vaguely recall hearing about this abortive project shortly before Doctor Who returned in 2005, but never knew that the pilot had ever made it past the executive boardroom. Filmed at around the same time, it's a tiny snapshot of what Paul McGann might have looked like as The Doctor, had the BBC decided to bring him… » 10/13/14 3:20am 10/13/14 3:20am

The Sexy/Crazy Eating-Sashimi-With-Prehensile-Hair Scene From 47 Ronin

47 Ronin had a lot of problems... but it also had Rinko Kikuchi as a sexy witch who uses her prehensile hair to eat sashimi, as she apparently tries to seduce the captive Mika (Ko Shibasaki). There is nothing sexier than hair-chopsticks and raw fish. NOTHING. And we've got one more scene below. » 9/18/14 8:00pm 9/18/14 8:00pm

Watch The Buffy Parody Series So Bad It Never Aired. Until Now.

Back in 2007, the folks behind Not Another High School Movie created the pilot for Not Another High School Show. As you can probably guess, the show was a spoof of all the tween TV series we love, starring Alison Brie and Jennifer Lawrence. Now, the first-ever footage from the parody series is out. It's not great. » 8/17/14 9:00am 8/17/14 9:00am

One Of The Most Wonderful Dance Showdowns In Science Fiction History

The 1983 Alien spoof The Creature Wasn't Nice (aka Naked Space) is painfully unfunny, despite the presence of Leslie Nielsen, Cindy Williams, Patrick Macnee and others. But this sequence at the end, where they confront the killer alien with a synchronized dance routine, is absolutely perfect. » 8/07/14 7:57pm 8/07/14 7:57pm

This Is The 1980s Cyborg Action Movie You've Always Dreamed Of Seeing

It's hard to believe that something as perfect as 1986's The Eliminators exists — just check out this section, where the cyborg hero removes his legs and turns himself into a tank, to escape from the top-secret evil facility where he was built. And then teams up with a roboticist, played by a young Denise Crosby. » 8/05/14 8:00pm 8/05/14 8:00pm

Could This Be The Most Ludicrous "Alien Seduces Humans" Scene Ever?

Here's a totally insane scene from the totally insane movie Galactic Gigolo, in which a giant broccoli from a planet of sentient vegetables comes to Earth in human disguise. To have sex with human women. And it turns out that "I'm from another planet" really is the can't-miss pick-up line. Warning: NSFW! » 7/16/14 9:00pm 7/16/14 9:00pm

See Bill Murray In The Lost Science Fiction Movie Nothing Lasts Forever

Back in the day, Tom Schiller wrote and directed weird and funny short films for Saturday Night Live, in the "Schiller's Reel" segments. Most of these are hard to see now — and so is Nothing Lasts Forever, the full-length science fiction movie Schiller directed in 1984. Except that the whole thing is on Youtube. » 7/08/14 8:00pm 7/08/14 8:00pm

Earth To Echo Makes Those Old-School Spielberg Films Feel New Again

The influence of classic Spielberg movies is all over Earth to Echo. The plot is lifted from E.T., but the movie also borrows heavily from Goonies and other 80s movies about kids hanging out. But stylistically, this movie borrows nothing. In fact, it shows how to conjure the "80s kid movie" vibe without wallowing in… » 7/02/14 9:00am 7/02/14 9:00am
