Guardians of the Galaxy Preview - Rocket Raccoon - www.scifiempire.net

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...

Summer Blockbuster you should avoid

Summer Blockbuster you should avoid Every summer there is a mad scramble to see latest and most buzzed about flicks. Often they have big names and have been anticipated for over a year. While more sort of just slip underneath the radar. Most articles about summer blockbuster try to delight you  about mentioned those that are worth paying a ticket for. Those that are not usually get a over a over the top bad review to entertain without the need to pay a ticket. Transformers:...

Continuum Season 3 Finale Last Minute Review - Erik Knudsen as Evil Alec Sadler Dying

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...

Game of Thrones Season 4 Finale Review - Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister

Game of Thrones Season 4 Finale Review

In the preview of this seasons Game Of Thrones finale I warned that the sheer number of plot resolutions could harm the experience. Luckily I was dead wrong. The Children (as the episode is called) is a wonderful episode that lays out the future of many characters and sadly also means the end of some favorites. Both Arya and Tyrion have basically turned in Westeros for the eastern continent. Tyrion thus escapes his death sentence while Arya settles her past and begins her...

Stephen Fry as Prime Minister Davies 24: Live Another Day Episode 7 Review http://scifiempire.net

24: Live Another Day Episode 7 Review

This is my first 24: Live Another Day review. I am a bit of late bloomer when it comes to 24. Though I watched season 1 when it aired I stopped afterwards. It wasn’t until season 8 that I started again, and I must say. I have become a 24 addict. 24: Live Another Day is the long-awaited season 9, though at only 12 episodes long it is still quintessential 24. I thought that season 8 was the perfect conclusion for Jack Bauer and...

Cosmos ‘Unafraid of the Dark’ Season Finale Review

Cosmos ‘Unafraid of the Dark’ Season Finale Review After 13 episodes Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey has ended. And it has left me invigorated. I wasn’t sure what to think about this project when it first aired. I had seen Carl Sagan’s original show but that was a long time ago. 13 episodes in I have learned a lot about science even though I am currently finishing my own Master thesis in computer Science and I already should...
