Golden Globes Award 2016 – which were the best actresses on the red carpet?

Golden Globes Award 2016 Along with all the reviews of movies and shows comes the glamour. Few events are more glamorous than the yearly Golden Globes Award. This years event was hosted on Sunday and of course included the red carpet event whereby every actress who is anybody tries to outshine everybody else by wearing the most beautiful or risqué dress permissible. In fact, plenty of not permissible fashion have become permissible by demonstrating it on the red carpet. This years...

Rogue One A Star Wars Story banner high resolution

More Rogue One rumors hit the internet!

Rogue One: Just a Rumor Just when you though the Star Wars craze was over, for now, it starts again. About a week ago I wrote a small preview of Rogue One, the standalone Star Wars movie starring Felicity Jones. Director Gareth Edwards already gave his opinion of what the movie is all about. “It’s the reality of war. Good guys are bad. Bad guys are good. It’s complicated, layered; a very rich scenario in which to set a movie.”...

The Force Awakens Review

The Force Awakens Review – J.J. Abrams returns and the force is with him!

The Force Awakens Review The Force Awakens has finally been released in cinemas. I managed to view it yesterday evening, the 18th, amidst a large crowd of arguably ‘young’ middle-aged fans whose dress-code is questionable. Sadly The Force Awakens (TFA) was over before I knew it. My initial reaction was gratitude that it did not suck like any of the prequel movies. Yet it wasn’t until this morning that I even dared to write down any firm words of judgment. The...

Idris Elba in Star Trek Beyond

First trailer for Star Trek Beyond blasts unto the internet!

First trailer for Star Trek Beyond blasts unto the internet! The first trailer for Star Trek Beyond was released unto the internet, and it’s nothing short of amazing! Paramount decided to release the trailer early even though it was supposed to show as a teaser in front of the Force Awakens. However, after some screen caps were leaked over the weekend and finally a low-resolution trailer auf Deutsch this morning the decision was made to release the trailer properly. I must say, it...

The Force Awakens update + Gwendoline’s Phasma dress!

The Force Awakens update It is only two weeks to go until the official release of Star Wars The Force Awakens on December 18. As a Star Wars fan I am starting to wonder what is going to be a bigger event: Christmas, the New Year or The Force Awakens. One thing is for sure, I am not going to finish that software project for a client I am have been working on. Late 2015 certainly is slipping into Spring...

Disney releases The Force Awakens trailer, still no Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker!

The Force Awakens trailer released Disney has finally released the full length trailer for The Force Awakens, the upcoming Star Wars movie that is so hot it needs to be touched with special asbestos gloves with little jawa’s printed on it. The buzz surrounding J.J. Abrams movie is reaching epic heights, not seen since the release of Episode 1 (one elephant out of the room). That said, actually very little about the story is known. The official trailer released this evening,...

Jonny Lee Miller as Dade Murphy - Crash Override Hackers 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

Hackers 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray Review

One of my favorite movie subgenres is about hacking. Movies such as WarGames, Sneakers and The Matrix are probably the reason why I am doing a PhD in Computer Science (besides the toiling work of writing about Science Fiction). Another movie that should be on that list is the 1995 movie Hackers by director Iain Softley. A week ago this cult-movie has finally got its 1080p blu-ray treatment it long needed. Now neither Angelina Jolie nor Jonny Lee Miller look as pixelated or...

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is finally revealed Last weekend at Disney’s D23 con Star Wars fans got more news then they were expecting. A few days before director J.J.

Instead Disney focused on all matters Star Wars besides the upcoming episode 7 (slated for December 18 if you haven’t heard). The most prominent focus of...
