Some weeks bring cool SF news. Others bring weird SF news. This week's Hottest Stories and Best Comments is a perfect Venn diagram of the two, including people frozen in carbonite, DC rebooting everything, Nimoy reading porn, a Czech Lord of the Rings, what really happened to George Lucas, and more!

Our story: Who else got frozen in carbonite other than Han Solo? Here are 12!

Your best comment: I was playing The Force Unleashed the other night, and noticed A carbonite frozen Jar Jar Binks, hanging in a trophy room on Imperial Kashyyyk! — Blue247

Our story: DC reboots EVERY superhero, starts all comics over with issue #1

Your best comment: Nobody cares....The next thing we'll hear is that they've gone with opposite sexes for the main characters...or that they're all some mentally handicapped kid's imagination...or...or...ZZzzzzzzz. — J

Our story: Bizarre legal battle could result in TWO competing Superman pics

Your best comment: Two Supermans, I'd say this is more than a bizare legal battle, it's a Bizarro legal battle. — 9th Doctor

Our story: CONFIRMED: Orlando Bloom to return as Legolas in The Hobbit!

Your best comment: I have one thing to say to this.
This is probably more to get the fangirls to watch more than anything
— bleakverse

Our story: 8 animals with wild superpowers that would make Superman jealous

Your best comment: The dragon millipede looks pretty cool. But poisonous clouds of gas? I release that every day. Wait, just a minute and I'll...yeah, there it goes. Silent but deadly. — Julien

Our story: Watch Nimoy read porn and dis Shatner in hilarious music video

Your best comment: Cracked up when I realised he was peeing in the sink! — Andrea D

Our story: Rumor of the Day: And the OTHER Avengers movie villain is ...

Your best comment: I think it's pathetic how badly people want this rumor to be true. The Infinity Gauntlet was NOT in Thor! The shots containing it were cut from the movie MONTHS before the release. I don't understand why so many people are trying to hallucinate it back into the film when there is so much cool Avengers lore for the directors to contend with without even approaching the Silver Surfer, Adam Warlock or any of those other can-breathe-in-space @$$holes. — chris

Our story: See a violent and awesome Czech re-enactment of Lord of the Rings

Your best comment: Smell that? It's freedom, my Czech friends. Isn't it grand? — Jay

Our story: Spoof trailer proves Lucas didn't like those prequels any more than you

Your best comment: Come on, Ewoks aren't that bad -- with enough ketchup. — Shane

Our story: Details on why director Russell REALLY left the Uncharted movie

Your best comment: A family that deals with art and antiquities? Um... has this guy SEEN National Treasure? I think dropping him was a good move. And... the Fillion potential is enticing as well. Wahlberg would bring too much of a scowl to a clearly humorous character, which is arguably one of the biggest draws of the Uncharted series. — Rich

Our story: Image of the Day: 50 vile villains in one eye-popping poster

Your best comment: I don't know about Gort. He only took action when the US Govt (the real villains) started shooting at Klaatu.

I would rather have included the Martians from War of the Worlds, who just showed up and started blasting everyone into smithereens. — KonTiki
