Blade Runner 2 release moved forward to October 2017

Blade Runner 2 release moved forward to October 2017

Blade Runner 2 release moved forward to October 2017 A few weeks ago I reported that Blade Runner 2 received a (controversial) release date, January 2018. The news came on the heels of the success of Dead Pool. Fans and industry insiders speculated that the studio was not worried about a off-season release. Perhaps they were signaling Blade Runner 2 was not meant to receive a wide release. Today, in total contradiction of that reasoning, and with joy, I can announce Blade Runner...

Chloe Bennet as Daisy Johnson Quake. Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review.

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review!

Agents of SHIELD S3Ep15 Spacetime review This episode, Spacetime, puts our favorite Agents of SHIELD right in the thick of it. A restaurant owner calls the police in a blind panic after being touched by Charles Hinton, an Inhuman. This touch gives the owner a glimpse into his own future, and his death. Because the call to the police mentions Daisy and Hydra the owner is approached by SHIELD. However, the scene unfolds just as the man says it will be....

Quantum Break review - stopping time when it matters

Quantum Break Review – Remedy bends time to its will

Quantum Break Review For some time now I have had Quantum Break on my radar. After playing through Alan Wake I was looking forward to a sci-fi time travel shooter with a strong story. Remedy has not disappointed. Yet, Quantum Break is not a polished product either. The game has some flaws. To find out if it is worth the money read this review. Setting Quantum Break is set in the North Eastern United States. After a time travel experiment...

The Flash and Supergirl.

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review

Supergirl + The Flash crossover Worlds Finest Review After watching Batman v Superman during the weekend the DC Universe is not done yet with tie-ins. Last evening Supergirl teamed up with The Flash on CBS. The result was an episode that made sense and was great fun, though it could not entirely hide the Supergirl silliness. A franchise crossover had been mulled for some time. At least two of Supergirl’s developers previously created Arrow and The Flash, both on The CW. I watch all three shows intermittently,...

Batman v Superman

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. DC Extended Universe has finally arrived!

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice The title may be a bit misleading. Officially the DC Extended Universe started in 2013 with Man of Steel. The DC Extended Universe is meant to be to the DC Comics what Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is to, well, Marvel Comics. So far things have gotten off to a rocky start. Man of Steel received only mixed reviews, certainly not the critical acclaim that Iron Man brought to Marvel. At the same time DC Comics...

The inevitable consequences aren’t ignored.

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review

Elementary S4Ep17 You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? Review After a hiatus I thought it good again to review an episode of Elementary. This week the show has been moved to its new time-slot on Sunday evening. The reason given is that it will give a better lead into Sunday drama’s. We shall see. In You’ve Got Me, Who’s Got You? we finally see more development on Sherlock’s investigation into his father, though it is the killer-of-the-week story that makes up...

Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg in Indiana Jones 5

Indiana Jones 5 – Can Harrison Ford truly return?

Indiana Jones 5 A few days ago Disney made the bombshell announcement that a new Indiana Jones movie would released in 2019. The movie, a sequel to the original trilogy and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will again be directed by Steven Spielberg and will also feature Harrison Ford in the titular role. The first response to the news was mostly skeptical. Harrison Ford is 73 right now and will either be 76 or 77 when the movie is released. As the...

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review

Colony S1Ep9 Zero Day Review For the last few weeks I have been binging on Colony, the new Sci-fi mystery show on USA Network starring Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies. Colony is created by Carlton Cuse, who was also joint showrunner with David Lindelof for Lost. Recently he has also developed Bates Motel and is working on Jack Ryan, a series based on the character from the Tom Clancy novels. So, Colony is hardly lacking in quality, but somehow it took me more than...

Anna Torv to star in Mindhunter with David Fincher and Charlize Theron

Anna Torv to star in Netflix series Mindhunter produced by David Fincher

Mindhunter Ever since the end of Fringe in 2013 it has been quiet for Australian actress Anna Torv. She has starred in a few Australian productions but that’s it. A canceled TV show can have consequences but with her gravitas I hoped she would quickly star in another role. Now after almost 3 years she may get her break. Anna Torv is set to star in Mindhunter, a series produced by David Fincher and Charlize Theron for Netflix. Torv will...
