As we reported recently, Andy Wier's new book, PROJECT HAIL MARY is out, so we thought we'd take a look at that category of science fiction that puts the emphasis on science. The hard stuff. The not-fantasy-stuff. No transporters. No lightsabers. No warp drive.

Tonight, we take a look at alternate histories, alternate timelines, and parallel universes. Multiverses, elseworlds, and more. Some have done it better than others. What are some of your favorites?

With the release of the new MORTAL KOMBAT, we thought we'd take a moment to examine the evolution of the video game movie. Because there's a history here, and we would do well to remember just how far things have come in the last few decades.

Last week, we took a look at the makings of a hero. What makes a person heroic? Is heroism more than just bravery? This week, we examine the corollary: what makes a good villain? Is it motivation? The result of an accident? Experiment? Genetics? Poor diet? And remember: sometimes the villain is the hero of his own story....

There are heroes, and there are Heroes. Some protagonists are the archetype, the ones you know are the heroes of the story without any doubt. And then there are those unlikely heroes, the ones you don't expect. What do they have in common? What makes a hero?

We all have a few. Those guilty (or not-so-guilty) pleasures. The movies and TV shows, books, comics, the things we like despite the fact that they're ... not great.

Tonight, on a special episode, we take a look at ZACK SNYDER'S JUSTICE LEAGUE with a full-on discussion and analysis of what works and what doesn't. This sprawling four-hour film has a lot of story in it, but is it worth the four-hour investment? Have the Snyder Cut fans been vindicated? Or was this all just a cash grab by AT&T?

Over the course of a few episodes, we've discussed the idea of remakes and reboots, and most of the time we're pretty solidly against them. But there are those rare few titles that actually deserve a better rendition. So we're going to examine a few of those works that need to have a fresh take.

As we get closer to the March 18 release of Zack Snyder's version of Justice League, new information continues to come out about the mess that everyone had to deal with, for various reasons. Now, a new article in Vanity Fair details a little more about how Zack and Deborah Snyder left the project after deciding the emotional toll of fighting Warner Bros. following the death of their daughter was too much.

We've talked about adaptations before, how tough it is to get it right. Some do better than others, and some material is just too much of a challenge to even make the attempt. Tonight, we'll take a look at a few adaptations that just missed the mark completely and didn't deliver the goods.

Godzilla! Kong! The trailer is out, and we have thoughts. The big monster movie is eventually coming out. Does this one look like it's going to hold up? What surprises could be in store for us? Plus, we'll take a look at monster movies of old and do a little "compare and contrast"...

With the news that Michael Keaton is back as Batman, and with word that he's getting a bigger role than just a quick cameo, it prompted a thought: what other actors and actresses from past franchises would you bring back to a modern reboot?

It's the talk of Hollywood and the social media circuit: the death of the movie theaters at the hands of Warner Bros. and parent company AT&T. But is it? What are the ramifications of the decision to release an entire year's worth of films in both theaters and on HBO Max?

We've seen a few of them: the dream cast, the "who would you cast if" lists. And we've seen the stories about actors and actresses being replaced -- sometimes for the better, sometimes not. And then there are those times when someone just does not fit the part at all. So let's discuss.
