Kristin Bauer van Straten as Maleficent. Once Upon a Time Review

Once Upon A Time Review of Darkness on the Edge of Town

With Haven on hiatus and Rick and the gang walking around Alexandria I thought it would be a good idea to try something new. This is my first Once Upon A Time Review. I have watched Once Upon A Time on an on/off basis for a while. Whenever Haven sucks, I’ll watch this show and vice versa. So far the first half of season 4 has been decent, strangely enough so was Haven. The addition of Elizabeth Mitchell felt special. Her depiction...


Blade Runner 2 movie is in production

Blade Runner 2 moves into production with Denis Villeneuve as director

Blade Runner 2 finds a director After months of speculation Blade Runner 2 has finally reached the next stage in production. Ridley Scott has announced he will hand over the director’s seat to Denis Villeneuve. It is unlikely many have heard of this Canadian director. His résumé include Prisoners starring Hugh Jackman and Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal. It is unclear what exactly the involvement of Ridley Scott will be. The busy director will probably remain on as executive producer. So far he has...

Leonard Nimoy has died at age 83

Leonard Nimoy has died at age 83 Sadly it has been reported that veteran actor Leonard Nimoy has died at age 83. Most Science Fiction fans know Leonard from his role as Spock on Star Trek. More recently he had reprised his role in the 2009 Star Trek Reboot. His other sci-fi credentials include Fringe as Dr. William Bell as well as many small guest roles. Leonard Nimoy began his acting career in 1951 with a small part in the movie ‘Queen...


Agent Carter season finale review poster

Agent Carter season finale review

The final episode of Agent Carter, Valediction, is over. Along with the previous episode, ‘Snafu’, they are best seen back-to-back. Hayley Atwell did not fail to convince me for 8 episodes that she was truly Agent Carter. It is sad the season was so brief. That said, the short duration did mean the story did not stall to fill up episodes. To think about all that has happened in the past 8 episode makes me hope there will be a...


Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Finale Review. Benjamin Franklin decapitated

Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Finale Review

The second season of Sleepy Hollow is finally over. It was a bot of a mixed bag. There was a lot of good, and a lot of bad. The bad were mostly the apocalyptic storylines that were recycled over and over again. The good usually revolved around Ichabod finding his way in the modern world, but the addition of Hawley and the extra screen-time given to Jenny were also welcome. As the series may not be renewed due to low ratings this last...


The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review. Rick hears children laughing

The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review

Last week’s episode of TWD was too slow for my taste. I was hoping for more action with The Distance. I was only partly rewarded as the survivors have to deal with some walkers but mostly attempt to figure out whether it is Aaron is telling the truth about the Alexandria Safe-Zone. The Walking Dead S5Ep11 The Distance Review Picking up where the previous episode left off, Maggie and Sasha return to the barn and introduce a stranger, Aaron, to Rick...


Agent Carter S1Ep7 SNAFU Review. Hayley Atwell as agent Carter

Agent Carter S1Ep7 SNAFU Review

This weeks episode of Agent Carter, SNAFU, is the seventh of eight episode of the first season. I am sad to see the first season end so quickly but a quick pace of the show does have its appeal. In SNAFU both Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Jarvis are forced to take a back seat to the action after both have been arrested. Instead the episode concentrates on Thompson, Sousa and Dooley as they try to build a case against Carter. Their instincts...


The Walking Dead S5Ep10 Them Review. Carol and Daryl share a moment

The Walking Dead S5Ep10 Them Review

The fifth season of The Walking Dead is moving forward at a fast pace. After Beth died in Atlanta and Tyreese died in the previous episode the cast continues to change. TWD is unforgiving. It took a while to warm up to Beth and Tyreese but their deaths were certainly heartbreaking. The series needs to find a new dynamic if it doesn’t want to be remembered for killing off its main cats one by one. Doing so is made difficult...


Amanda Tapping directing Dark Matter. Syfy Dark Matter Preview

Syfy Dark Matter Preview

This summer Syfy Channel continues with its efforts of producing high-concept science fiction with the release of Dark Matter. Syfy Dark Matter Preview At this moment little is known about Dark Matter except for its premise. According to producer Joseph Mallozzi (Stargate) ‘The series follows the crew of a spaceship who awake from stasis with no clue where they are’. The 13 one-hour episodes are based on the graphic novel Dark Matter by Mallozzi and Mullie, published by Dark Horse Comics. At first...


Game Of Thrones Season 5 Preview. Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Preview

On April 12th, in just over two months time, Game Of Thrones will return for its fifth season. The show, along with the novels written by George R.R. Martin, is slowly drawing to its conclusion. Though we still have two more novels to go and at least three more seasons until its finished. I have been looking forward to season 5 with more trepidation than I did with previous seasons. The violence and nudity have for me become less important than...


Sith lord unveils light saber - Star Wars VII Lightsaber

J.J. Abrams talks about Star Wars VII Lightsaber

One of the most talked about scenes from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer was the new Sith ligthsaber. I dare say thanks to SciFiEmpire.net everybody got a high-resolution picture to pick their bone with. The controversy about the ligthsaber has hardly abated since the release of the trailer. Most think it is too gimmicky. After Episode 1 and 2 introduced new types of sabers it is hard to get around that argument. Many hope Star Wars Episode 7: The Force...


Agent Carter The Iron Ceiling Review. Leviathan girls turned into assassins

Agent Carter S1Ep5 The Iron Ceiling Review

After last weeks episode of Agent Carter, The Blitzkrieg Button, the show turned a corner. The mystery of the battle of Finow and the darker side of the war was brought forward. The silliness that occurred during the first few episodes lessened. Also more effort was placed on fleshing out secondary characters such as Roger Dooley (played by Shea Whigham) and Jack Thompson (played by Chad Michael Murray). Thompson is hard to like, but Dooley shows that he is not aloof of Peggy’s accomplishments...


The Blacklist season 2 James Spader promo

The Blacklist S2Ep9 Luther Braxton Review

The Blacklist The Blacklist is finally back after its mid-season hiatus. Fresh after the death of Alan Fitch (played by Alan Alda) Raymond Reddington intends to find the Fulcrum. His quest is a tacit acknowledgement that he never had it in the first. For Raymond (James Spader) things become complicated when notorious criminal Luther Braxton allows himself to be captured and send to a CIA blacksite located on an oil rig. There he hopes to gain access to the security network of...
