Actor Peter Mayhew, the only actor to ever play Chewbacca in the Star Wars movies, was forced to cancel an in-person appearance this weekend due to illness. It turns out that Mayhew was stuck with a nasty bout of pneumonia and had to be hospitalized. Altho the illness can be very serious, Mayhew‘s wife says that his pneumonia is under control and he should be discharged from the hospital soon. But I’m guessing that sending our best wishes for a speedy recovery will do wonders for good ol’ Chewbacca. More »

Last summer, FX scared the Hell out of us with their adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan‘s novel The Strain and today we learn that they are already hard at work, ready to scare the hell out of us again this summer with the show’s second season. Altho The Strain book series is a trilogy, I’m guessing that the TV series will be longer than just 3 seasons. The Strain season 2 will likely tell more of the story from book one … I’m guessing. Click the embed above to watch this new teaser for the upcoming second season of The Strain and get ready! The Master returns … and he looks hungry.

At long last, I finally made my out to the movies to see the Academy Award-nominated film Selma in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and I have to tell you — I was absolutely floored by what I saw. For hours after the movie, I found it difficult to synthesize my feelings about the film because of its powerful impact on me. I actually cried very early on in the movie (if you’ve seen it, you know what I’m talking about) and continued to quietly sob for the duration. I studied the work of Dr. King in college but it’s one thing to read about the events portrayed in this film and it’s quite another to see it play out in motion. I truly loved this wonderful and important movie but two very glaring things kept sticking in my mind like a burr that dug into my brain. First, I was angry to see the things playing out on the big screen echo and remind me of the injustice that still happens today. Second, I was dumbfounded that David Oyelowo wasn’t nominated for the Best Actor Oscar because I can assure you, he delivers one of the greatest movie performances of the year — hands down, absolutely no question.
