Dolby Wants Its IMAX Competitor To Be The Future Of Cinema

The advent of the internet, torrenting, and legally dubious streaming sites have threatened theatres for years, but cinemas are still big business and Dolby is investing in its future with Dolby Cinema.


Star Trek 3 Jettisons Director And (Terrible-Sounding) Script

It’s a strange universe we live in where the folks behind the new Star Wars film are the same group that brought us the rebooted (and lens-flare-happy) Star Trek. Though the world of epic sci-fi movies isn’t always blissful — it appears the next Star Trek is on the hunt for a new director after the disposal of Robert Orci and his less-than-inspiring script.


Remember That '90s TV Show ReBoot? Well, It's Getting A Reboot

Growing up, you probably watched dozens of different cartoons and kid-orientated TV shows, but of those, only a few tend to stick in your memory through to adulthood. The 90s in particular had some great series and one that I remember fondly is ReBoot, featuring the characters of Bob the Guardian, AndrAIa and Frisket the dog. 20 years on, and ReBoot is getting rebooted.

The Best Reason To See Interstellar: It's Part Of A Dying Breed Of Film

There’s something exceptional about Interstellar that everyone should experience — it is a movie-making “alignment of stars” akin to the perfect storm in music that lead to Woodstock. It’s a film so extravagant in nature, it was projected in 70mm, a format equal to the scale of its fantastic story, and shot on IMAX 65mm.


Watch The Pentagon Wars Because Bureaucracy Sucks

Video: After spending my entire week wrestling with the Kafka double-whammy of healthcare and taxes, I feel like I’m about to drown in paperwork. But no matter how bad the from-filling gets, The Pentagon Wars is living (and hilarious) proof that things can always get worse.
