A Happy 2017 from SciFiEmpire.net

A Happy 2017 from SciFiEmpire.net, your website for all Sci-Fi news

A Happy 2017 from SciFiEmpire.net 2016 has come and gone. For many it outstayed its welcome. Problems such as Brexit and the election of Donald Trump has certainly made me apprehensive about the future. Sadly we also lost far too many celebrities: Carrie Fisher, her mother Debbie Reynolds and actor Alan Rickman to name just a few. On the last day of the year we also lost William Christopher, who played father Mulcahy on M.A.S.H for over a decade. All this makes...

The end for SciFiEmpire.net – So long and farewell!

The end for SciFiEmpire.net – So long and farewell! Readers of SciFiEmpire.net may have noticed I have been absent from posting for a few weeks. I had a lot of work to do and there are some big changes coming in my life. After some hesitation I decided the best decision was to stop posting on SciFiEmpire.net. Effectively that means the end of this blog. If anyone wants to continue the torch feel free to contact me. The decision to...

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu Ray

While attempting to keep an eye on all the presents I want to buy for other people this holiday season I almost forgot Star Trek has several big releases. Most notably the last season of Star Trek The Next Generation has been released on Blu-ray. You can now watch Picard, Troi, Worf and the other one last time in 1080p. Or you can watch it as often as you like afterwards. Today I stumbled upon the box set by chance....

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer - John delancie as Q in All Good Things

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer and Preview

Star Trek TNG Season 7 Blu-Ray Trailer Finally the last season of The Next Generation will get its Blu-Ray release. Ever since CBS home released a preview disk set of 4 TNG episodes in full HD in 2012 it has been a pleasure to rewatch the entire series. In my opinion the experience is drastically improved over the lackluster DVD release from years back. The special effects and the drama seem to contain a lot more impact with the remastered HD release....

I consider both to be work in progress so please do give feedback. Of course the main changes are about the social media connections. I already had a Facebook page (here) and a Google+ page (here) but now a Twitter account (here) has also been added....

Enterprise Season 4 Blu-ray Preview and Trailer!

As Star Trek TNG learned us, all good things come to and end. So did Enterprise, after only four seasons. We have had the good fortune of seeing the first two season on Blu-ray. Early January season 3 will also be released. Today, we finally got the trailer for season 4, which is expected to be released on April 1st if you can believe that. I liked Enterprise, despite the flaws it inherited from TNG and Voyager. Though the series finale...

Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray out September 10th

Star Trek Into Darkness may have been a mixed bag but it is definitely a movie worth a second and third viewing just to understand it properly. For those not wanting to go a to an empty cinema there will soon be the possibility of owning a copy of the movie on DVD or Blu-ray complete with a whole host of extra’s. The release has been scheduled for September 10th for a tentative price of 19.99. Which I believe will just be...

Tron Legacy Olivia Wilde

SciFiEmpire.net celebrates it’s 2nd anniversary!

SciFiEmpire Two years ago today I decided to make the big plunge and sign up for a website with a hosting company. For the most part I just wanted to vent my opinion on all matters science fiction, ranging from TV-shows, movies and novels that came about while my own writing career kind off passed by slowly. Strangely enough, writing a blog is easier and harder than I assumed it would be. The hardest part is keeping discipline to write something....

Star Trek: The Next Generation Season 3 Blu-Ray Review!

Finally the third season of Star Trek TNG has arrived on Blu-ray. Fans have been waiting for this season ever since the Blu-ray release scheme was initially announced. As despite the first two season having their moments in the sun it is the third season that finally allowed The Next Generation to mature. This was largely due to a change in the creative staff with people like Gene Roddenberry and Maurice Hurley being kicked to the curb and being replaced...

Star Trek Enterprise Season 1 Blu-ray Review!

This is the review of Star Trek Enterprise season 1 Blu-ray that was released about a week ago. I expect the other seasons to be released every three or four months or so. That means the entire show of just four season will be available in about a year. The show’s Blu-ray return is perhaps not as highly anticipated as the TNG remastering but it is more established with fewer noticeable ‘bad’ episodes. This more formalistic approach does come at the cost of creativity....

Star Trek Enterprise season 1 Blu-ray cover - Jolene Blalock as T'pol - Scott Bakula as Jonathan Archer

Enterprise season 1 Blu-ray trailers and cover!

The Blu-ray release of Enterprise’s first season is more highly anticipated than you might think considering the series got cancelled after four years. After the end of Star Trek DS9 in 1999 and Voyager in 2001 fans of Star Trek generally agreed that the franchise needed a rest. DS9 fans couldn’t imagine another epic storyline in their lifetime and Voyager fans agreed with critics that Star Trek should be more than special effects and Jeri Ryan’s boobs. However, the executive producers of what was to...

Total Recall - Three breasted girl

Total Recall (2012) Movie Review!

This summer the remake to the 1990 movie Total Recall from Paul Verhoeven was released in theaters. Frankly it was a remake nobody was really waiting for as the original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger is just brilliant. So instead of a movie that adopts a Phillip K. Dick story that has not yet appeared on the big screen we get movie based on one that already has left a big legacy. The remake also choose do away with the whole Mars subplot and...
