Shaun Of The Dead And The World’s End Figures Your Latest Must Have Toys

fb share tweet share

Shaun of the DeadJust because Edgar Wright’s so-called Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy is over doesn’t mean we’re magically going to stop loving them. They’re too good for that. Those three loosely related siblings—thematically connected rather than plot or story wise—may be done, but we can still celebrate the awesomeness that Wright and co-conspirators Simon Pegg and Nick Frost brought into the world. And one way to do it is with action figures.

Of the three films—Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End—only the first and the last really fall into the sci-fi category, but that’s okay, we still love you Hot Fuzz. And we’re far from the only fans wandering around out here. Evil Corp has now created these three sets of figurines to commemorate the films, and they are pretty damn fantastic. Each set pairs Pegg and Frost’s respective characters, bringing them together again, and for you to control this time.

Streamers! After a short hiatus, your favorite Giant Freakin’ Robot streaming column is back! (Just because it wins that distinction by default doesn’t mean it’s not a victory.) We’ve given Cross the Streams a bit of a facelift, and we’ll be moving forward by sticking to the five most notable new movies and TV series that the Internet has to offer by way of streaming, for better or worse. If this means we’ll have to leave all the $15,000 creature features behind, so be it.

Simon Pegg Reveals Original Outline For The World’s End

Warning: spoilers for The World’s End!

Because I’m realistic, I know there are people who don’t think that Edgar Wright is one of the few consistently amazing directors out there, or that Simon Pegg is the coolest celebrity ever. But I don’t have to like those people. While I begin the outline for my loathing, the rest of us can enjoy a special treat Simon Pegg shared on his Twitter feed. It’s a picture of him and Wright standing next to a full outline for last year’s fried gold comedy The World’s End, taken back in August 2011.

Science Fiction’s Most Memorable Moments Of 2013 – Rudie’s Picks

fb share tweet share

With 2013 in its final hours, we decided to look back on the year that was, and remember the moments from science fiction TV and television that really stuck with us, that we’ll still be thinking of years from now. Needless to say…

InterstellarInterstellar’s Teaser Trailer
A few weeks ago, we got the chance to see the new teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s next film, Interstellar. While it didn’t show off much in the way of footage, it did instill a sense of urgency and wonder. Matthew McConaughey’s delivery of Christopher and Jonathan Nolan’s words is inspiring and creates a great sense of the future and who we are as the human species. There’s just something about pointing out this nation’s lack of interest when it comes to space exploration that woke something inside of me.

FrostNick Frost’s berserker rage (The World’s End)
On its own, Edgar Wright’s The World’s End is a fantastic movie, and one of my favorites of the 2013. Doing for science fiction what he did for zombie movies and testosterone-fueled cop films in his previous flicks, Wright manages, yet again, to defy expectations. Even knowing what you know about his work and approach, especially when teaming up with co-conspirator Simon Pegg, The World’s End is not the movie most people anticipated. Nowhere is this more apparent in Nick Frost’s character, Andy Knightly.

A Giant Freakin’ Thanksgiving 2013

Brent’s Thankful For…

AHumanAlmost Human
Fringe may be dead and buried, but showrunner J.H. Wyman wasted no time getting back on the broadcasting horse with his new robo-buddy-cop series Almost Human. On the surface these two shows have little in common aside from their procedural nature and sci-fi leanings, but the two are similar in the way they approach the well-worn tropes of a cop drama and use speculative fiction to turn them on their head. We’re only three episodes into our relationship with Almost Human, and I don’t want to jump the gun, but guys, this could be the one. There’s a grim future, mismatched partners who push each other, sex ‘bots, mysterious criminal networks, and action. What else can you ask for? This year we’re definitely thankful that there’s good, gritty sci-fi on TV, and that we get to see Karl Urban (Dredd) on a weekly basis.
