This year is full of great science fiction and fantasy TV series. Actually, 2016 is too full. Seriously, check out how long this list of new, returning and potentially premiering shows due out over the next 12 months is. When are we going to get a chance to leave the house and watch all those great movies, or read all…
Last night’s big live production of The Wiz on NBC was pretty much flawless—we loved all the performances, including all the classic numbers. Here’s my fav bit—when they go into the Emerald City and everybody is doing a version of Madonna’s “Vogue.”*
Darren Wallace, a visual effects artist out of Australia has put together this delightful mashup of The Wizard of Oz and Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s goofy, and I can totally see the Tin Man taking on the role of Ultron.
Great cons belong to that special category — along with heists — of things that are very fun in fiction but not something you want happening to you. And con artists in fiction are usually charming, smart, and have an abhorrence of violence. Here are the 10 greatest con artists in science fiction and fantasy
There is more to jewelry designer Theo Fennell's rings than meets the eye. Many of his piece contain secret compartments and hidden paintings, paying tribute to books like The Wind in the Willows, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and The Wizard of Oz.
A Wicked movie by 2016? That is both the most exciting and terrifying news all at once. On the plus side, this is a fabulous musical ripe for the screen, but on the downside it's also terrifying to imagine anyone else playing the two leads besides Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel.
Yes, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has been interpreted and reinterpreted over the decades, but you've never seen it quite like this. Rice Boy creator Evan Dahm has gone back to the book's text and is illustrating a new edition of L. Frank Baum's classic novel.
Via io9 reader Otterlove comes a wry (and surprisingly apt) comparison between characters from The Wizard of Oz and the nine Great Houses of Game of Thrones.
Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return arrives in theaters limping. After long delays, endless rewrites and decisions like "let's add songs by Bryan Adams," it finally comes out with a 5 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. What the heck went wrong with this film, anyway?
Toto, I don't think we're in L. Frank Baum's Oz anymore. In The Black Brick Road of Oz, an amnesiac girl who thinks she's Dorothy Gale finds herself in an Oz populated by flesh-hungry witches, zombie scarecrows, and a tin woodman mourning more than the loss of his body.
The greatest works of pop culture are also the most insanely quotable. We all love to swap lines of dialogue from our favorite books, movies and TV shows — but too bad we usually get them wrong. Here are 12 famous quotes — that are actually misquotes.
The opening shot of last night's Supernatural episode was the funniest part, as we discovered that a taxidermist has created a whole Game of Thrones tribute, out of woodland creatures. This was the second time in a row the show has made a Thrones joke — insecure much? As for the rest of the episode... it had its…
You guys there are TOO MANY Wizard of Oz adaptations running around. Too many. This is the fourth and it's all about how Dorothy has decided to rule over Oz like some sort of fascist dictator, who must be killed. Huh?
I regret to inform you all that the entire medium of television irrevocably passed into complete irrelevancy earlier today after CBS announced they were developing a TV series named Dorothy, about a medical drama based on The Wizard of Oz. I am serious.
Syfy has tapped Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter director Timur Bekmambetov to create an action-fantasy "reimagining" of The Wizard of Oz. The miniseries will be called Warriors of Oz and it sounds completely fucking insane.
In celebration of misunderstood big bads we give you "The Adoration of Elphie." The Wicked Witch of the West has never looked more beautiful!
Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful was a visual feast, full of gorgeous CG imagery — but some of the concept art for the film is more stark, and thus more striking. Check out some more of the whimsical, sweet Oz art below.
In between making the disastrous Spider-man 3 and Oz the Great and Powerful, director Sam Raimi made what The Middleman once called "a zombie palate cleanser": the masterfully nuts B-movie Drag Me to Hell. As you watch the plodding action in Oz unfold, you'll find yourself wishing it had a bit more of the…
I never would have imagined The Wizard of Oz would warrant any kind of a prequel, but darned if all the previews and clips for Sam Raimi's upcoming Oz the Great and Powerful haven't looked pretty darned good. This final trailer still doesn't give us a good view of the Wicked Witch of the West, although it does have…
