Fëanor pours the entire internet into the Recyclotron, and only the best links come out the other end for you to enjoy.
- Above is a pretty funny Matrix/Big Lebowski mashup. Makes me want to watch both movies again. (Via)
- Four more preview pics from Fringe's third season, via the show's official Facebook page.
- The other day I mentioned that I strongly suspected Caprica was not coming back for the second half of its first season (who started this stupid tradition of splitting up seasons into halves, anyway?), but happily I was wrong. In fact, it's coming back early, on October 5th at 10PM. Follow the link for a preview. Looks like we're going back to Grand Theft Auto: Caprica City, and now there are droogs there! (UPDATE: I was a little confused here. Although the second half of the first season is airing early, Syfy has still not announced a decision on the second season, and apparently may not do so until November. So Caprica still might be dead in the water.)
- The Onion A.V. Club reviews the pilot episode of the new Nikita. They say there's a lot of exposition, which I hate, but other than that it sounds like it might be okay.
- Hey, there's a website where you can order sacks of just cereal marshmallows! Finally you can have your marshmallow fix without all those annoying oat bits getting in the way! (To be honest, the thought of eating straight cereal marshmallows without some plain oats to cut the sweetness is disgusting to me, but I still find this fascinating.) (Via)
- Blastr has a fun list of 10 of the best sci-fi TV episodes ever aired. Some pretty good selections here, especially "Hush," "City on the Edge of Forever," and "33," all probably my favorite episodes of the respective series. In fact, "33" hooked me on Battlestar Galactica right away and for good. It's probably the best first episode of a series ever. I might have picked different episodes of The Outer Limits ("Keeper of the Purple Twilight?" "The Children of Spider County?"), Firefly (what about "Jaynestown," man?), and Star Trek: The Next Generation (the one with the flute!), but the ones they chose are mighty good. I think "Home" is the only episode of The X-Files I've never seen, which really pisses me off, because everybody says it's so good. I really should track it down one of these days. As for "The Eye of the Beholder"... I don't know, I've just never been a Twilight Zone guy. My reaction to that episode was pretty much just, "Ah. Yes. I see what you did there."
- This stairway-become-waterfall is beautiful and horrifying and funny and terrible. (Via)
- Fun illustrations of Masters of the Universe villains.
- The Tron hoodies from Threadless are back in stock! Now, who wants to lend me the money to buy one?
- Martin Scorsese's 15 favorite gangster movies. I'm sad to say I've only seen a handful of these, but I definitely agree with him on White Heat, Point Blank, and Night and the City. (Via)
- An update on Terrence Malick's latest, Tree of Life. Sounds like it might be done by next year, if we're lucky.
- Doctor Strange could be an animated film - made by Pixar?! YES. DO THIS.
- These faux-vintage Star Wars figures are mighty tempting.
- Pretty cool interactive map of Middle Earth. A small complaint: the font, while appropriate, is a bit hard to read. Still, impressive. (Via)
- To paraphrase Cinematical's description, Passion Play is a movie about a down-on-his-luck trumpet player (Mickey Rourke) who seeks redemption from an angel (Megan Fox) who's being paraded around like a circus freak by a local gangster named Happy Shannon (Bill Murray). Woah. Interesting story and an interesting cast. Click through to top it off with an interesting clip.
