Indy rides again: Thoughts on the announcement of ‘Indiana Jones 5’

By Ashley Pauls/Box Office Buzz When I was a kid, I thought Harrison Ford was pretty much the coolest person ever. After all, he was Han Solo AND Indiana Jones, my two favorite movie characters. Since then, Star Wars and Indiana Jones have remained two of my favorite film franchises,

INK BREAK 06: LIFE, LOVE AND GALLIFREY ONE

Gallifrey One is difficult to describe because it is so many things. It’s like being at the center point of Doctor Who fandom and discovering it exists everywhere in infinite variation. The only thing unifying the disparate group of con goers was a love for a mythology based on a

INK BREAK 05: PROSE AND CONS

I’ve never been to San Diego Comic Con. I may never go because yeah, crowds … not so fond of those. I adore, however, all the stuff that comes out of a con of that size and how easy it is to access it online. Each year media providers are

‘A new hope’: An open letter to J.J. Abrams

Dear Mr. Abrams, It’s hard to believe it’s been more than two years since we first heard the announcement Disney had purchased Lucasfilm and that we’d finally be getting an episode 7 — something most Star Wars fans had long since given up on. It’s now less than a year

To boldly go: In memory of Leonard Nimoy

By Ashley Bergner/Box Office Buzz I stayed home from work sick today, and was just lounging in bed and resting when I got a text from my dad — and fellow “Star Trek” fan — to let me know that actor Leonard Nimoy had passed away today. I had heard that Nimoy

Swinging into action: Thoughts on Spider-Man joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel Studios is — at least for now — the undisputed victor when it comes to superhero films. “The Avengers” remains the highest-grossing superhero movie of all time (and one of the all-time highest grossing movies, period), and even their “B-list” heroes have become major stars and major money-makers. At

INK BREAK 04: THE QUIET REVOLUTION OF FAN CREATED WORKS

The ignition point of change is lower than you think. Transformation in thinking tends to smolder beneath the surface a while before bursting into the light. We need to give ourselves permission to shift perceptions and we search for ways to explore the consequences in safety. We do this through

Ink Break 03: Super Women

A tantalizing proposition is wending its way out of the barren desert of female-led superhero films … Ghostbusters … with women! Yes you read that correctly, director Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, The Heat) and writing partner Katie Dippold (The Heat) are penning a script for a reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise

Ink Break 02: Building A Better Monster

Our most powerful stories are fashioned out of the things we fear. We delight in terrorizing ourselves into leaping from chairs with popcorn flying or huddling further beneath blankets with a tattered paperback and a flashlight. Science, horror and fantasy fiction writers reach deep inside the shadowed places of their

Ink Break: Introduction And Bad Romance

Hello, my name is Mary Ogle and I am a professional artist, designer and writer. I was raised on fantasy and science fiction in dusty spaces crammed with well-thumbed paperback books, magazines and comics. I spent hours in the brilliant glow of a flickering TV screen soaking up everything from
