I imagine the Channel will finally Bankrupt itself, due to its inability to produce any content outside of the narrow parameters it choose to designate its brand identity within. People have long lamented the poor quality output of SyFy; with most people being totally oblivious to the fact that that's the point. Sci-Fi rebranded itself Syfy and started ...

That is Nathan Fillion. The screen shot seems to be from his role of Captain Malcolm Reynolds from the show Firefly. He has played other roles, including a starring role in the show Castle, and the cult favorite Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.

It should be one of Ray Bradbury's stories - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Martian_Chronicles_(TV_miniseries). The planet was Mars, and Martians tried to manipulate them by using their memories. A second mission is launched and the "Zeus II" crew lands on Mars in April 2000. To their amazement the crew (astronauts Arthur Black, Sam Hinkston and David ...

This sounds like the academy award winning and science fiction disaster film: Independence day. As for the scene you saw, I don't think you really remembered well. What happened is: The president launched his aircraft into the center of the alien weapon in a suicide attack, annihilating the ship. Hiller and David, who have discovered the aliens ...

Gorchestopher H did a decent job of explaining how they differ. I think how they differ is fairly obvious. If you want a good example of them combined, I would recommend the movie Event Horizon. Star Trek is sci-fi because it is science fiction, but it is not scary. The Ring is horror because it is scary, but it does not contain sci-fi. Event Horizon ...

This sounds like John Doe, which aired from 2002 to 2003, and is about a man who wakes up with amnesia, and uses his special abilities/knowledge to help solve crimes while being tracked by The Phoenix Organization. From wikipedia: I woke up in an island off the coast of Seattle. I didn't know how I got there ... or who I was. But I did seem to know ...

I am pretty sure you're describing Wing Commander (1999). The people who could make space jumps by heart/instinct are called "Pilgrims".

I am absolutely not sure, but some of your images, modern world with sorcerers, a staff, different dimensions, evokes memories to the Rutger Hauer movie Crossworlds that I saw a very long time ago and only have rather vague memories of. A young man discovers that his father was from another dimension and that he is the key to the operation of a crystal ...

Sounds like A Sound of Thunder from 2005 with Edward Burns and Ben Kingsley. From IMDb: [In] 2055, Charles Hatton has made a fortune by founding 'Time safari', which offers rich 'big game hunters' short time travels to kill off dinosaurs just before their natural death... They soon face 'time waves', each worsening the effects in 2055 of evolutionary ...

Host (AKA Virtual Obsession) with Peter Gallagher and Mimi Rogers from 1998. Everything you've described (the young woman with the terminal brain illness, the married scientist freezing her head, her mind downloaded into a computer, her being able to control the city and mess with his life, wheelchair guy, lab rats etc. etc.) is all in there. Here's a scene ...

Sounds like Locusts: The 8th Plague with Julie Benz. From Wiki: a 2005 natural-horror film... about a group of farmers and scientists that battle a swarm of flesh-eating locusts that have escaped from a secret genetics laboratory in Idaho. The protagonist (Dan Cortese) runs a business for organic pesticide and at some point isn't attacked because he ...

Sounds like it may be the interesting Canadian movie LAST NIGHT where it's the end of the world, and everyone knows it, but no explanation is given. One man is trying to bed as many of his desires as possible, and there's even a hook-up between a teacher and ex-student. (It's the last night before the world ends...) Here is the trailer, and a poor copy of ...

This might be the unpicked pilot Island City from 1994, where most of humanity mutates into violent primitive creatures (like Will has described) and the remaining healthy people fight them and migrate to the titular safeheaven. It features futuristic 8-wheeled vehicles roaming the desert areas populated by those mutants. The whole thing is available here ...
