One of the most enduring TV and movie franchises in entertainment history, Star Trek started in the 1960s with the original TV series, and will soon unveil its latest movie installment, Star Trek Into Darkness, next month. Shrouded in secrecy, all that is known is that the Enterprise crew will take on John Harrison (Benedict Cumberbatch), a Starfleet officer who seeks revenge for reasons that have yet to be divulged. However, with the new Star Trek series having the ability to use older canon while also hurtling into undiscovered territory, whether John Harrison is actually Khan (as fans continue to purport) will be up for debate until the movie opens. In the meantime, there is still other possibilities for Harrison's identity, which can only fans can prepare themselves for the next movie by catching up with the rest of the franchise. Fortunately, we have a plan for anyone to become familiar with the Star Trek franchise, and all you need is 8 hours to do it. check out the "essential" Star Trek >> Posted 04.10.13 by Ryan
"I see everything."
The field of robotics took another giant leap forward recently, with the creation of Rex, a "bionic man" with fully functional artificial human organs and lifelike features, bringing science reality ever closer to the science fiction depicted in movies. As incredible as it sounds, humanoid robots, or androids (just "droids" if you're George Lucas), like Rex have been appearing on screen since well before Czech writer Karel Capek gave the English language a name for them in his 1920 sci-fi play R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots), with the human simulacrum Hadaly a featured character in the 1896 French movie L'Eve Futur (The Future Eve). Hundreds of movies have included androids — and their part man, part machine, cyborg cousins — since Hadaly, but which ones were the best? Help us rank the movies with the coolest, the baddest, the sexiest, the deadliest, the most terrifying androids and cyborgs.

Wow, Mr. Stark, you're such an innovator. Wounded and held hostage (with a makeshift electromagnet stuck in your chest), you take a couple of sardine cans and a used vacuum cleaner and build battle armor to get out of your predicament. A couple of revisions later, and you're now Iron Man, a metal hero the likes of which humanity has never seen.
Problem is, you ain't so original. In fact, the world is so overrun with shiny, clanking people that we had no problem working up a list of 10 others who have opted for the alloy life. Better equip your elbows with a set of battering rams, Stark. It's getting kinda crowded around here.See our list of Top 10 Guys Gone Metal >> Posted 05.05.10 by reelz
