About the “Mace Windu is Snoke” theory…
by Doc on Oct.16, 2016, under Movies
A while back I came across this fan theory that Supreme Leader Snoke in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is in fact Mace Windu, the former Jedi Master who fought the soon-to-be-Emperor and lost, being flung Palaptine’s office window in a high tower on Coruscant. But we didn’t see him die – it is only implied, and if anything is true in science fiction (or Hollywood), if you didn’t seem them die, they can always come back – and sometimes, even if you did…and Samuel L. Jackson believes he’s still alive.
Now, this fan theory seems to stretch quite far on a number of things – I don’t believe the Finn is related theory at all – but it does raise some interesting points. But there’s one in particular that I want to debunk…that of the lightsaber color.
Syfy renews Van Helsing
by Doc on Oct.16, 2016, under Television
Syfy has already given a renewal to freshman series Van Helsing, it’s post-apocalyptic vampire survival drama, for a 13 episode second season, set to begin production next January.
Van Helsing focuses on Vanessa Van Helsing, a descendant of vampire slayer Abraham Van Helsing, who awakens from a coma several years later in a now post-apocalyptic devastated world, where the vampires have control of most of the world. She awakens among a group of humans holed up in a building trying to survive, where she discovers her blood has the ability to turn the vampires human again – which makes her a target for the vampire Ancients.
