We're more than grateful that these villains are fictitious.
Science fiction is full of dastardly villains and terrifying creatures, but these ten characters from movies, books, and TV are the worst of the worst.Read More

I don't see a need for a remake of The Matrix, but I'm also not a believer in the idea that remakes "ruin childhoods" as anything other than a tired joke. While a Matrix remake wouldn't bother me, since I can just go back and watch the original yet another time, I'm legitimately excited to hear the prospective writer, Zak Penn, say that the "reboot" will relaunch the franchise by telling a different story within the same universe, rather than the same story over again.Read More

A couple of days ago, I saw a video claiming that The Matrix was a transgender coming out film. I hadn’t watched The Matrix in years, but this struck a chord in me. It felt right. I found my old DVD of the movie and started live-tweeting the main transgender themes from the first Matrix movie. Let's go a bit more in-depth than 140 characters.Read More
Lilly Wachowski acknowledges this trend of people going back and reviewing the Wachowski siblings' work with a lens that takes their transness into account.Read More
Could Squirrel Girl be the next Marvel superhero with a Netflix show? One fan thinks so, and they've started a petition to try and get it off the ground--even adding that they think writer and producer Jane Espenson would be the perfect choice to serve as showrunner. I will never say no to more Squirrel Girl in every medium possible.Read More

Which pill do I take where this ends up being good news?
The Matrix was a huge achievement in filmmaking both technically, visually, and in terms of story. The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions may not have been as bad as most people make them out to be, but let's just say the news of a Matrix prequel trilogy has us... cautiously optimistic.Read More

Plants use energy from the Sun through photosynthesis, and humans use energy from the Sun through things like solar panels. A new technique created by researchers at the University of Georgia allows humans to get electricity from plants by hijacking the photosynthesis process. This research could someday lead to some very literal power plants.Read More
After watching this video of a mom trying to explain The Matrix, I'm convinced I must make my mom do the same. She's well-known for getting character names wrong when trying to describe a piece of media to me and I'm certain she'd be a YouTube hit. But I digress, Joe Nicolosi got there before me and his mom is a riot. (via HyperVocal) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?Read More

I'm not going to leave you in suspense. There's no joke about humans being a disease, plague, cancer, or virus in here. They make a different reference, which I guess is fair, if less in character. Hugo Weaving, thank you for existing.Read More
