Black Panther Review – Ryan Coogler succeeds with Afrofuturism

Black Panther Review Finally fans of Black Panther get the movie they always wanted. Personally I knew little about the character before his introduction into the MCU with Captain America Civil War. However, just like with Spider-Man it was a hugely successful introduction. Chadwick Boseman played the role of Crown Prince T’Challa (and then King) with charm, depth and elusiveness that endeared. Black Panther tells the story of what happened after the events of Civil War, after the death of T’Challa’s...

Most Anticipated Sci-Fi Movies 2017 was among the best years for Science Fiction at the cinema. With movies such as The Last Jedi, Blade Runner 2049 and Logan. But what ‘great’ sci-fi movies can we look forward to from this point on. Below I have a compiled a list of movies that are in one stage of development or another. Some, such as Mute and Solo are practically finished while others such as Dune have only been announced. So here...

A Happy New Year from SciFiEmpire.net

A Happy 2018 from SciFiEmpire.net, your website for all Sci-Fi news

A Happy 2018 from SciFiEmpire.net I want to wish every reader of SciFiEmpire.net a Happy 2018. I think it will be easier this year. Last year we had just lost Carrie Fisher and her mother and the election of Donald Trump was weighing on the minds of a lot of people. Yet, since then things have changed considerably. Looking back on 2017 And so 2017 has also come and gone. As I am growing older it feels like the years are...

Preview of 2018 Science Fiction Movies with Solo, Jurassic World and many more

Preview of 2018 Science Fiction Movies 2017 was probably one of the best years in science fiction film – maybe ever. With movies such as Blade Runner 2049, The Last Jedi and Logan spoiling us with quality and controversy. But there was plenty more: Thor Ragnarok, Alien: Covenant, War for the Planet of the Apes and Valerian. Looking back it was just too much. But the question is. Can 2018 emulate that list? The short answer is no as there...

Acting Outlaws 2018 Calendar – Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer get naked for charity

Acting Outlaws 2018 Calendar Acting Outlaws is a continuing charity organized by actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer. They use their risqué poses to collect money for a good cause – besides acting like genuine outlaws and driving motorcycles. Every year I cover the release of their upcoming calendar, this year is no different. However, it appears that the Acting Outlaws 2018 Calendar has been available on RedBubble.com for a while. It is now a self-updating offering. I especially like the colour...

Justice League Review – a team of superheroes that cannot match The Avengers

Justice League Review So finally after many years of speculation the first Justice League movie has arrived. Well, there was Batman v Superman, and Wonder Woman before it. Nonetheless Justice League is meant to be for DC Comics what The Avengers is for Marvel. Sadly, it cannot match the quality of that other movie. If I was a cynical person I would say that Justice League was yet another failure on the part of Warner Brothers and director Zack Snyder. Now...

Murder on the Orient Express Review – True Nostalgia with Kenneth Branagh

Murder on the Orient Express Review I am not certain why I wanted to see this movie when I first heard it was in production. I mean, I have seen practically every major adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel. Yet, there is plenty of allure. The arguably lurid backstory to the murder. Plus the wonderful décor of an express steam train traveling through the snowy landscapes of the Balkans. Murder on the Orient Express is a period drama that despite the...

Happy Halloween – Greetings from the Afterlife

Happy Halloween Hello everybody. I hope you enjoy reading articles here on SciFiEmpire.net. I can see readers are especially interested in yesterday’s review of Berlin Station. Perhaps I will add the series to my regular line-up. As some readers may have noticed the release of posts has become irregular. I have been busy, since April I have a new job and I have also focused more time on writing a book on Deep Learning. Another reason the frequency of articles was reduced is...

Thor Ragnarok - Thor fights The Hulk

Thor Ragnarok Review – Taika Waititi slam dunks the franchise to success

Thor Ragnarok Review Thor Ragnarok was not the movie I was expecting to see. After reading early reviews I concluded it would be the funniest movie in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Some referred to it as a masterpiece by director Taika Waititi. Personally I just wanted to see a proper sequel to a sub-franchise that had been on hold for four years and ended on a mixed note (Thor: The Dark World). For the remainder of this review I note: SPOILER ALERT!...

So what did I think of the trailer? Well I think it revealed too much. I...

Blade Runner 2049 Review Round Up – Denis manages to beat impossible expectations

Blade Runner 2049 Review Round Up The first Blade Runner 2049 reviews are in, and they give it glowing praise. Now, this is not a Blade Runner 2049 review. I won’t be seeing it until next Thursday (October 5th) and the general release is the day after. However, the movie has already been screened to journalists and reporters from the entertainment industry. Today their non-disclosure agreement ended. So here is what they have to say about Denis Villeneuve’s sequel to...

Blade Runner 2049 stars Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford (as Deckard) and a slew of supporting cast. The new trailer reveals quite a lot about the story for the sequel – a SPOILER alert is this warranted. Watch the trailer below. Blade Runner 2049 is being directed by celebrated director Denis Villeneuve with movies Sicario, Arrival and the...

Stargate Origins website teases the return of more wormholes

Stargate Origins teased For years there has been speculation that the 1994 movie Stargate might get a reboot. The reboot was likely to omit the subsequent series (SG-1, Atlantis and Universe) from its canon. Alas after the train wreck that was Independence Day Resurgence not much heard from the idea. the director of the original movie, Roland Emmerich, even admitted a reboot was unlikely. Yet, today, out of the blue, a teaser website has appeared for something called Stargate Origins....
