Our story: Sexy girl undergoes gross transformation in NSFW horror movie clip

Your best comment: That's what happens if the beer goggles wear off too soon.... — Kai Alexis Price

Our story: A Trekkie restoring original Next Gen Enterprise bridge? Make it so!

Your best comment: Looking at the picture of the Captain's chair, I wonder if Picard (Stewart) was having digestive problems! Still, I'm glad the guy is restoring the set. — revdocdave

Our story: 15 never-before-seen pics of Stan Winston creating the Alien Queen

Your best comment: While both are true art forms in their own right, I am saddened to see many film makers choosing CGI animation over the marvelous creatures turned out by masters like Winston. — Dale M.

Our story: 21 thrilling new Doctor Who S7 pics: Dinosaurs, daleks and more!

Your best comment: I hear those Dalek conventions can get pretty wild. And the booth babes are really salty. I'm done now. — Julien

Our story: Vader + 17 more times sci-fi icons rang Wall Street's opening bell

Your best comment: What's up with Vader applauding? Dark Lords do not wear shorts, nor they do not clap for others! — Cincinnatus

Our story: What's got Joshua Jackson in uniform for 19 new Fringe set pics?

Your best comment: Apparently Joshua Jackson & I both have the same clear-plastic makeup bag :) — Kyle Pasciutti

Our story: Check out the 1st set pics from Doctor Who's Xmas special

Your best comment: I'm actually hoping these aren't from Dr Who but are actually from the new series of Downton Abbey. I'd watch it then. — Raw1980

Our story: See (and buy) 27 concept images for never-made Gaiman Sandman movie

Your best comment: It's a crime that this didn't get made.

On the same note, I'd love to see a new version of Neverwhere on a bigger budget, whether another miniseries or a movie or two. — Joe

Our story: The startling change to Spider-Man's origin story you never knew

Your best comment: Anyone else think the cop in the first panel looks like Stan Lee does today? — Alverant

Our story: Joseph Gordon-Levitt finally explains that ambiguous TDKR ending

Your best comment: It is a great ending for that trilogy because that trilogy was never a story about Batman. It was a story about Bruce Wayne. It isn't important who is the next Batman or if there is a next Batman, etc. It was the character arc of Bruce that mattered and was completed. That's why they can leave the franchise without a lame tack on sequel. — Clyde M

Our story: Duchovny explains why last X-Files movie tanked at the box office

Your best comment: They should have had the movie ready for this year, the date mentioned in the last episode for the Alien invasion was Dec 21st 2012, this year would have been a perfect time to release that movie! Hope it still happens but It looks like Hollywood would rather make superhero movies or reboots. Btw, I loved the 2nd X-File movie, I know it wasn't a mythology based movie but it felt like the old stand alone horror eps. — Old School

Our story: All the pics Robert Kirkman's posted from the Walking Dead S3 set

Your best comment: is it wrong that i think the zombie girl next to Kirkman is kinda cute? also is it me or does the guy next to Kirkman look alot like Grima Wormtongue from LOTR: The Two Towers? — lordanubis82

Our story: Watch the cast of Star Trek: TNG sing teen pop hit 'Call Me Maybe'

Your best comment: If there was a TOS version, it would be a Willam Shatner spoken word song. I think that the only way to make this awful song tolerable is: WILLIAM SHATNER! — Scienceorc
