Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor in Terminator Genisys

Terminator Genisys Review – A decent start ends in near disaster!

Terminator Genisys Terminator Genisyss is an odd movie. I was so NOT looking forward to it. With Jurassic World you knew it would never be as good as the original, but I still had high hopes. Yet that franchise has seen it fare share of failed sequels. Terminator is different. After an excellent T1 and T2 another two sequels were produced that totally disregarded the originals cinematography and action style. Instead they were two popcorn flicks when they didn’t need to be. I think fans...

SciFiEmpire.net Celebrates its 4th Anniversary with Book Giveaways!

SciFiEmpire.net is four years old… Today it has been 4 years already since I first started SciFiEmpire.net. At the time I was particularly bored with other articles on Science Fiction on the Internet. I thought I could do better. It happens that maintaining  blog isn’t easy, but it has been a lot of fun. You get to have a comment on everything, write a lot, write to other people a lot and receive the odd free copy of a book or...

Christian Slater as Mr. Robot.

Mr. Robot Episode 2 Review -eps1.1_ones-and-zer0es.mpeg

Mr. Robot Episode 2 Review Welcome back to the Mr. Robot Episode 2 Review. The second episode of Mr. Robot started where the pilot stopped – in the boardroom of Evil-Corp. Elliot has not been discovered as the true hacker who framed an E-Corp executive. Instead CTO Tyrell Wellick (Martin Wallström) announces that E-Corp will never rely again on an outside company for its digital security. He attempts to bully Elliot into working for him, even going as far as saying that...

Mr. Holmes movie starring Ian McKellen

Mr. Holmes movie preview starring Sir Ian McKellen

Mr. Holmes movie preview This summer another Sherlock Holmes movie is scheduled for release. It doesn’t feature Robert Downey Jr. or Benedict Cumberbatch or Jonny Lee Miller. Instead it stars Sir Ian McKellen as an aging Sherlock who desperately tries to remember details of his last case which he failed to solve. Mr. Holmes is not really about the mystery of the case. It is a movie about characters and situations as they might occur in the late Victorian period and Sherlock’s attempt to...

What to read this summer – Upcoming Sci-Fi Novels!

Upcoming Sci-Fi Novels for you to choose from… For me summer has finally arrived. It was the last day of my formal university education. Not only that, today with 33 degrees it was the warmest July 1st on record. Tomorrow and the day after that more records will break and if the weather lady is to be believed Saturday will break the all-time record of 38 degrees C. So yes, summer has arrived. Traditionally it is the time I turn over at least...

Minority Report TV-Series Preview – Can Fox do Sci-Fi right this time?

Minority Report TV-Series Preview More than 13 years after the movie Minority Report with Tom Cruise was released a TV-series is in production. I can’t say that I am surprised. Fox is desperate to find a counter balance to Person Of Interest from rival CBS. So what is Minority Report all about? Well, it is based on a short novel by famed Sci-Fi author Philip K. Dick. The story follows Police Commissioner John A. Anderton after he himself is accused of a...

Chris Carter watching a scene between Mulder and Scully

Preview of Chris Carter’s X-Files miniseries revival

X-Files miniseries revival Just like the shortened season of 24 last year it took almost no time for The X-Files to get a new series as well. Chris Carter is back at the helm of a shortened six episode season which is filming right now. If that wasn’t enough I have for a weeks been enjoying the original X-Files in glorious 1080p thanks to Netflix. I will do a retro review of the first two season some other time. Right...

Fantastic Four 2015 cast poster

Fantastic Four Preview starring Kate Mara

Fantastic Four is back! One of the last big summer blockbusters this year will be Fantastic Four. The superhero movie, starring Kate Mara, Jamie Bell, Miles Teller and Micheal B. Jordan is based on the similarly named comic book series that started over 50 years ago. Normally I do not consider myself a big fan of the superhero genre. I enjoyed Spiderman starring Tobey Maguire but I ignored the reboot that came afterwards. Similarly I enjoyed Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy while I...

At this years E3, LucasArts showed an extended 5 minute in-game trailer that just blew everyone away. Now it is time for an in-depth preview and see whether this new game is worth the hype. So what is Battlefront? The game is a reboot of the original two battlefront games that were released over 10 years ago. They...

Fallout 4 - Pip-boy

Fallout 4 Preview – From Bethesda With Love

Fallout 4 Preview It seems like only last year that I played Fallout 3, Bethesda’s reboot of the Fallout franchise from the 1990’s. Yet the game was released back in 2008. I remember having borrowed a PS3 from a friend who went on holiday because my PC was rubbish and I just had to play Fallout 3. Strangely enough I also remember fallout 2, a game I received as a birthday gift in 1998 but which I traded for WarGames....

Rami Malek as Elliot in Mr. Robot Pilot

Mr. Robot Pilot eps1.0_hellofriend.mov Review

Tonight (June 24th) anyone can watch the new USA Network TV show starring Rami Malek. Mr. Robot offers a glimpse into the world of hacking, vigilante activism and powerful corporate interests. It promises smart writing, a familiar but interesting lead character and a new take on the hacktivism that became popular after the global economic crisis. This is review of the Mr. Robot Pilot, but the series is slated to last for 10 episodes. Officially the pilot has already been released in a...

Mass Effect Andromeda E3 Preview Roundup

Mass Effect Andromeda The announcement that a new Mass Effect game was in the works was unexpected at E3. Sure, it was announced long ago that Bioware was indeed working on a new installment in the franchise. However, few people believed the game was far along for a formal announcement. In truth, Mass Effect Andromeda, won’t be released until the fourth quarter of 2016. So perhaps fans still have an 18 month wait. Until then they can dream of exploring, shooting up aliens and...
