The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer - Evangeline Lilly as Tauriel

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer

The Hobbit The Battle of the Five Armies Trailer Finally the first trailer for Peter Jackson’s film The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has been released. So far the director has been tight-lipped about the third and last installment of The Hobbit trilogy. The movies are of course inspired by J.R.R Tolkien’s children book The Hobbit set in Middle-Earth. I was skeptical that a film version of a rather short children’s tale would work. However, Peter Jackson has taken every...

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview

Avengers Age of Ultron Preview Comic-Con 2014 is in full swing and as every year there is simply too much news too report. Comic-con is not usually reserved for large announcements. Instead studios prefer to offer teasers and little snippets of news to lure back the press to a future event. So it is too with the upcoming Marvel movie Avengers: Age of Ultron. This second Avengers is again directed by Joss Whedon and will see a familiar cast being enlarged by Elizabeth...

Extant S1Ep3 Wish You Were Here Review - John and Molly talking to bigots

Extant S1Ep3 Wish You Were Here Review

The third episode of extant initially tries to put on the brakes after last weeks episode pulled the veil on much of the mystery. Molly got the definitive news that she has become pregnant on the space station alone. She has also confronted her superiors at the ISEA about and her friend Kryger is also definitively alive. Extant needs to put on the brakes otherwise the show will easily burn itself out. Imagine how long it took for Lost to even show who The...

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD

Lucy Lawless joins the cast of Agents of SHIELD Slowly the news is starting to trickle in about the second season of Agents of SHIELD. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 23, 2014. I think most people interested can be split into two groups. The first group want to see more of the Marvel Universe because they are fans. While the second want to see if the show will be cancelled. Despite some good reviews during the latter episodes the ratings barely...

Guardians of the Galaxy Preview ***Premiere Update***

Guardians of the Galaxy Preview August 1st it almost upon us, time a Guardians of the Galaxy Preview. Rather unexpectedly we will be getting a science fiction movie featuring a man calling himself Starlord. He is accompanied by talking tree and a foul-mouthed gun toting raccoon. What’s weird is that it is not directed by Joss Whedon. Yet, fans have already started to compare it’s off-beat humor and off-beat cast with both Firefly, Farscape and Star Wars. Officially Guardians of the Galaxy is part of the...

Extant S1Ep2 'Extinction' Review! Annie Wersching as Femi Dodd talking to John

Extant S1Ep2 ‘Extinction’ Review!

After the pilot of Extant was better than I though it would be I was excited about the second episode. It didn’t fail those expectations. Unlike the pilot episode which had to cram a lot into a mere 42 minutes this episode ‘Extinction’ is able to provide more background material on the various storylines. I am not sure in which direction Extant is taking us but that is  a feeling I very much embrace. Extant S1Ep2 ‘Extinction’ Review! Extinction starts with Molly...

Extant Premiere 'Re-Entry' Review! Marcus writes help me

Extant Premiere ‘Re-Entry’ Review!

Extant Premiere ‘Re-Entry’ Review! It is odd to see Halle Berry making the jump from movies to a TV-show. And yet, here she is in the new CBS show Extant produced by Mickey Fisher. The show straddles various genres such as Science-Fiction, Mystery and Drama while taking care not to get bogged down in the SF department. I first heard of Extant about a year ago. I thought it odd it would star Halle Berry but I wasn’t against it. My first thought was that...

Covert Affairs S5Ep2 False Skorpion Review - Piper Perabo as Annie Walker trying to explain she is getting a boob job

Covert Affairs S5Ep2 False Skorpion Review

This weeks episode of Covert Affairs is entitled ‘False Skorpion’ and has Annie tracking down those responsible for the bombing of the CIA station in Chicago. Sorry I didn’t post a review of the season opener of Covert Affairs last week as I was at a job interview. And yes, I did get the job. Last weeks episode was effective in setting up the storyline of season 5 at the expense of wiping out everything that happened during season 4. Annie has...

Continuum Season 3 Finale Last Minute Review

Continuum Season 3 Finale Last Minute Review Season 3 of Continuum has ended and oh boy did this show change for the better. While I won’t say that I understood all of plotlines (we are dealing with time travel) at least the disorder from season 2 is gone. Continuum season 3 has ended about a week back for those watching on Showcase, but those watching on Syfy will have to wait one more week. Next to Orphan Black Continuum feels...

Star Trek The Next Generation Season 6 Blu-ray Review

Star Trek The Next Generation Season 6 Blu-ray Review Officially the season 6 Blu-Ray disc set for Star Trek TNG wasn’t supposed to be released until the 24th of June. I had forgotten to pre-order my copy so imagine my surprise when I saw it in the shops 5 days early. Of course I had to buy it in order to watch it and review it.  It has been since November that a TNG season was released in HD. I think fans...

Guardians of The Galaxy poster Zoe Saldana - Guardians of the Galaxy Preview

Guardians Of The Galaxy Extended Trailer

When I first heard Marvel was releasing a movie called Guardians of Galaxy I presumed it was just another movie featuring Thor or Loki. We have just had our Captain America movie so I doubted he would be featured. Little did I know that GoG was an already established franchise that has been running in comic book form since 2008. However, when I saw the first trailer I just fell in love with the potential. The non-too-subtle humor and the good looking...
