Rogue One - Felicity Jones

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is finally revealed Last weekend at Disney’s D23 con Star Wars fans got more news then they were expecting. A few days before director J.J. Abrams had said there would be no trailer or behind the scenes footage of The Force Awakens. I wasn’t expecting any to begin with.

During the last two episodes the show has finally...

Minority Report Pilot Review – Fox takes another stab at Sci-Fi

Minority Report Pilot Review Today the pilot episode of Fox’s new Science-Fiction drama Minority Report leaked onto the internet. Several other TV shows such as Lucifer and Blindspot also had an episode released early by content pirates. It is as of yet unknown whether it has anything to do with the fact that the Redskins were renamed in the show, a nod to the team’s controversial name. As old news is no news I decided to write an early review of the leaked pilot...

Remake of Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic may be in production

Raza approaches space station. Dark Matter Episode 8 Review

Dark Matter Episode 8 Review – Syfy’s space opera finds its secure footing!

Dark Matter Episode 8 Review Slowly the first season of Syfy’s Dark Matter is developing to be the space opera that can actually replace Firefly and Stargate. After watching 8 episodes most of the six characters as well as the Android have a backstory that is interesting and meaningful while none of them have their memories from before they were wiped. So far Joseph Mallozi’s show also resembles Farscape in that details of the wider universe of Dark Matter are known, but there is no...

Continuum Season 4 Trailer Released!

Finally Syfy and Showcase have started their promotion of the upcoming last season of Continuum. With just over a month away from release I started to fear the producers wanted to bury this show quickly. Luckily that is not the case, but promotion is a problem. Continuum has been cancelled, after the upcoming 6 episodes it is truly over. However, I am eager to watch the last season and discover how show runner Simon Barry intends it to end. Below you...

Star Wars Dark Disciple Review + Giveaway

Star Wars Dark Disciple Review + Giveaway

Star Wars Dark Disciple Review + Giveaway On the road towards Star Wars Episode 7 slated for December 18 LucasFilm is releasing new novels to fill in the storyline. I already reviewed Lords Of The Sith and gave it an average score. For a title as catchy as ‘Lords Of The Sith’ both Darth Vader and Darth Sidious were notably absent for most of the story. Can Star Wars Dark Disciple by Christie Golden do better? The title, Dark Disciple, indicates the...

Continuum update season 4 - scarred inspector dillon

Continuum Update – so where the hell is Showcase’s last season?

Continuum Update During the last week or so a few people have emailed me on why I am not covering the new and last season of Continuum. The short questions is I am, there is simply nothing to report. Unlike previous seasons which aired during the summer months this last shortened season is scheduled to start on September 4th. I am pleased so many are still supporting this show and just like me are suffering from Continuum withdrawal symptoms. Sadly,...

Ant-Man Review Banner

Ant-Man Review – I don’t feel the excitement from Iron Man or Captain America!

Ant-Man Review Movies set in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU) are for me an acquired taste. I found the first Iron Man a bit of an odd duck when I first saw it. I have since come to appreciate most of the main characters of the MCU. Tony Stark’s banter with Pepper Potts, Thor’s with Jane Foster, Captain Rogers v. everybody else and of course Coulson and company. I was not looking forward to Ant-Man. I never heard of the comic or the character and...

Killjoys Episode 5 A Glitch In The System Review – Time for a mid-term for season 1.

Killjoys Episode 5 A Glitch In The System Review With this weeks episode of Killjoys – A Glitch In The System – 5 episodes have aired. The first season has thus reached the half-way mark, time for mid-term score. This weeks episode has an interesting main storyline: abandoned spacecraft, killjoys investigate, sole-survivor tries to kill them, AI gone haywire. It feels familiar, especially after last week’s episode Dark Matter, but it is the fallout of these events that really matter...

After season 4 fans have started speculating whether or not Person Of Interest should wrap things up with a fifth season or whether there should only be a shortened 13-episode season to keep the story fresh and original. The issue with Person Of Interest has to do with the originality of the show. During the first season the premise...

This time it is famed author Dan Simmons who has written a Holmesian historical epic. The author of Hyperion, The Terror and Ilium manages to impress with a story in which both historical and fictional characters take center stage.
