fb share tweet share

Times are tough out there, you don’t have to tell us. We’ve considered downgrading to a Medium-Sized Freakin’ Robot but it just doesn’t roll off the tongue nearly as well. Nevertheless, we’ve got your back when it comes to saving some cash, so check out some of Amazon’s better deals of the day. It’s a nice cross-section of science fiction film and TV, so get yourself something special, or get a really early jump on Christmas shopping.

T2AnthThe Terminator Anthology (Blu-Ray) – $24.99
First up, you can grab the Terminator Anthology on Blu-ray for a mere $24.99, which is half off the list price. That’ll get you two excellent movies and, er, two other ones as well. Jokes aside, the Terminator franchise is in the process of being rebooted, rejiggered, and generally fiddled around with, so it’s a perfect time to revisit the earlier movies, especially since it sounds like we’re going to be seeing events from them played out in different ways. The set includes The Terminator, T2: Skynet Edition, Terminator: Rise of the Machines, and Terminator Salvation. Here’s the rundown on bonus features:

UPDATED: Well, that didn’t take long. After a bunch of people kept insisting the hoverboard video was the real deal, Funny or Die has finally come forward to take credit for it. You can see Christopher Llyod’s “apology” below, followed by the original viral video. But hey, at least we’re getting power laces

Divergent Featurette Introduces Four, Plus Veronica Roth Reacts To The Movie

In a few short weeks, the film adaptation of Divergent will open in theaters across the country. Based on author Veronica Roth’s best-selling young adult book series, Divergent is Lionsgate’s attempt to line up the next Hunger Games contender before that widely popular series ends with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part Two in 2015. Although Divergent and its subsequent sequels are best-selling novels, the property is still virtually unknown to anyone who isn’t a teenager or young adult. Lionsgate is releasing a ton of materials to change that, including the new featurette above.

Dean Stockwell Turns 78, Dr. Sam Beckett Still Hasn’t Returned Home: Today In Science Fiction

fb share tweet share

AlIf you’re old enough to have been hooked on Quantum Leap back in the day, actor Dean Stockwell will always be the amusingly lecherous Al Calavicci. He was Dr. Sam Beckett’s guide through the timestream, tasked with helping Sam maintain his sanity and figure out why he had been dropped into a given time and place. He was also the comic relief to Scott Bakula’s straight-man Sam, forever arguing with Ziggy, ogling at any female that wandered into his field of vision, and delivering a barrage of double entendres whenever Sam found himself trapped inside a woman’s body. But Stockwell made Al more than just a vehicle for exposition and cheap jokes. At times his performance carried enormous emotional weight, especially during the leaps where Sam found himself involved in Al’s tragic past — he was held as a POW during the Vietnam War, during which time his wife believed him dead and remarried. Seriously, if you made it through the scene where he holographically danced with his wife to “Georgia on My Mind” without tearing up, you’re a cold-hearted monster. (Annoyingly, I can only find the clip in Spanish, but the feels are still there.)

This summer, Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction will kickstart a new chapter in the film franchise with an all-new cast and Autobots and Decepticons that have yet to be featured in the series. Transformers 4 is looking to have a bigger box office than its predecessor Dark of the Moon while also opening up the film series to a new audience. Now Paramount has released a set of character posters that give us a look at two of the human cast member, not to mention Optimus Prime himself.

The new-and-improved Optimus Prime is front and center in the first poster, not to mention wielding a giant sword. While the sword was featured in previous marketing materials, you didn’t really get a sense of how big the weapon actually is until you see it in this poster. Optimus has a majestic, noble-warrior look to him with the fighting stance and Asian backdrop. It’s going to be interesting to see if Prime will live on past Age of Extinction.
