Mary Elizabeth Winstead in 10 Cloverfield Lane

10 Cloverfield Lane Trailer online for March 11 release

10 Cloverfield Lane Cloverfield was the sleeper hit of 2008. I remember the release of the trailer well. At first I thought I was watching a some drama movie involving 30-somethings at a frat party. Yet, it did have that found-footage feel which left be baffled. Until Godzilla type monster roared in the background. Cloverfield wasn’t a movie I considered should need a sequel, but after years of speculation a sequel has been announced entitled 10 Cloverfield Lane. The sequel is also...

Person Of Interest Season 5 its last! Hot off the success of The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams has made some surprising statements. One of which was sort of expected but is still sad. Person of Interest season 5 may well be its last. At the Television Critics Association Abrams told reporters Saturday that “My guess is it is the final season.

It’s complicated, layered; a very rich scenario in which to set a movie.”...

Watson pursued by the The Abominable Bride

Sherlock The Abominable Bride Review

The Abominable Bride Finally after an absence of 2 years Sherlock has returned. The series, created by Steven Moffat and John Gatiss, has been a fan favorite since its first season aired in 2010. The second season, which expanded the cast to include Lara Pulver, solidified the show’s reputation and that of actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. Sadly, the third season missed the spot for me. Those episodes could be best described as boring, convoluted and missing the mystery...

Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Upcoming Sci-Fi Games of 2016

Upcoming Sci-Fi Games of 2016

Upcoming Sci-Fi Games of 2016 Arguably 2015 was not the best year for Sci-fi games. Fallout 4 was excellent, but not without flaws. Several games that were originally slated for release this year slipped into 2016. Some delays can be expected, games such as Star Citizen (scheduled for 2017) and No Man’s Sky are groundbreaking with their technical innovations. One innovation that has also slipped into 2016 is VR. Head-mounted displays such as Oculus Rift have finally reached the end-state of...
