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. I know, that kind of came out wrong. The easy part is all the technical stuff which I thought would...

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 by Rick Berman and Michael Piller. It also saw the return of Gates McFadden as Doctor Crusher, though fans were...

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. Enterprise season 1 aired originally from 2001 to 2002 and featured the following actors…. Scott Bakula as Captain Jonathan Archer. Jolene...

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 be Enterprise, Brannon Braga and Rick Berman, tried to combine both DS9 and Voyager concepts. The end result being that Enterprise was of good...

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 it’s mysticism and instead it tries something new with a transport tunnel through the center of the earth, which left me...

Starship Troopers: Invasion Trailer!

Starship Troopers: Invasion Trailer!

A couple of months ago I updated on the coming release of the fourth Starship Troopers movie that is scheduled to be released this summer. Since then things have been quiet on this front and not surprising as it appears to be a direct to DVD for this movie, not unlike the second and third movies. Hopefully this CGI version of Starship Troopers will be better, certainly the trailer seems to catch the theme well enough. Here is the synopsis one more time… A distant Federation outpost Fort Casey comes under attack by bugs. The team on the fast attack...

Hot legs of Emily Blunt - The Adjustment Bureau

I finally managed to get the DVD of The Adjustment Bureau reviewed, this Sci-fi movie has a plot that is inspired by Philip K. Dicks short story ‘The Adjustment Team’.

As for the story… On the brink of winning a seat in the U.S. Senate, ambitious politician David Norris (Damon) meets beautiful contemporary ballet dancer Elise Sellas (Emily Blunt)–a woman like none he’s ever known.
