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...

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 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...

Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker duel on Hoth - Star Wars Battlefront Preview

Star Wars Battlefront Preview

Star Wars Battlefront Preview It has been just over two months since I reported a new Star Wars Battlefront game was in production. 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...

Award-winning composer James Horner dies in plane crash

Composer James Horner dies Sad news has been announced on the internet. Composer James Horner has died in a plane crash in California at the age of 61. At first there was some doubt who had died. He did own the plane but it wasn’t sure if he was on board. The only available news was that the single occupant, the pilot, had died in the crash. His assistant has however posted the following on Facebook. “We have lost an...

Mass Effect Andromeda Desert planet

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...

Dark Matter Episode Two Review - Melissa O'Neil as Two and Zoie Palmer as The Android

Dark Matter Episode Two Review

Dark Matter Episode Two Review Joseph Mallozzi’s TV incarnation of the similarly named comic he co-authored aired its second episode yesterday. Usually, the Friday night slot is seen as the graveyard evening as people go out, watch sports and regularly do not bother to turn on the TV. It is strange that Dark Matter should air on Friday along with Syfy’s other new offering Killjoys (read the review here). Dark Matter follows the crew of six (plus a Android) of...

Killjoys Premiere ‘Bangarang’ Review

Killjoys Premiere ‘Bangarang’ Review After the première of Dark Matter last week Syfy is releasing another Sci-fi Adventure series called Killjoys. In many ways the release of two somewhat similar TV-shows is embarrassing as both claim to incorporate elements of Joss Whedon’s Firefly. While I relish at the prospect of competition, both shows also compete with Defiance which is airing concurrently. Keeping my attention on all three TV-shows who all occupy the deadly Friday night TV slot makes me a rather nervous SF...

Adam Jensen in Deus Ex Mankind Divided E3 Preview Roundup!

Deus Ex Mankind Divided E3 Preview Roundup!

Deus Ex Mankind Divided E3 Preview Roundup! E3 2015 is over and so it is time to give a roundup of all the sci-fi games that were shown. Or at least the good ones. Those games that got me excited were the fifth Deus Ex game (if you include The Fall in the count), but also Mass Effect: Andromeda, Star Wars Battlefront and The Division. Today I have written a roundup preview for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Right from the...

Owen and Claire find the destroyed gyrosphere - Jurassic World Review

Read my Jurassic World Review with Premiere Pictures

Jurassic World Review Jurassic World is a difficult movie to judge. It is a lot better than The Lost World or Jurassic Park 3. Especially compared to The Lost World (which I love to hate) it manages to succeed as a worthy sequel to Steven Spielberg’s original 1993 movie Jurassic Park. Sadly, that is where most of the good news ends. Jurassic World is an OK movie, but not a very good one. Whereas Jurassic Park had strong characters with...

Dark Matter Series Premiere Review. Zoie Palmer, Roger Cross, Jodelle Ferland, Melissa O'Neill, Alex Mallari, Marc Bendavid and Anthony Lemke

Dark Matter Series Premiere Review

Dark Matter Series Premiere Review Syfy’s latest TV-show Dark Matter is based on the Dark Horse Comics series of the same name created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie. In fact, Joseph Mallozzi is a long-time Stargate alumni and acts as executive producer for this show as well. The plot is simple. Six people awake from stasis on a ship in space but have no idea who they are. They try to get organized. Each is given a numeric designation, One through Six....

Syfy cancels Defiance

Dark Matter, Defiance season 3 to air tonight!

Dark Matter Tonight Syfy channel’s new TV series Dark Matter starring Roger Cross (Continuum, Orphan Black). Dark Matter is created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, and is based on the comic book of the same name. I am not familiar with the Dark Horse comic books and so I can’t recommend them, as for the series. It has not been widely announced. I first reported on it last year because Amanda Tapping would direct an episode. After her work on Continuum...
