Jurassic World set picture - Bryce Dallas Howard

Jurassic World first set pictures from next years summer blockbuster

Finally we have the first set pictures of Jurassic World, the fourth dinosaur movie intended to reboot the series. Jurassic World is scheduled for release in June 2015 and will be directed by Colin Trevorrow. If you are going to ask whether you should know him the answer is no because he has only made 3 low-budget movies so far. We can only hope that it won’t affect the quality. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D’Onofrio are among those confirmed to...

Agents of SHIELD season 2 sneak peek trailer

Agents of SHIELD S1Ep19 The Only Light in the Darkness Review

Agents of SHIELD has finally managed to get itself into higher gear with the Captain America story tie-in. Ever since episode 17 ‘Turn, turn, turn’ fans have been casually positive about what they perceive as a reboot. Before the tie-in I had an opportunity to rewatch all the episodes and I must say that I found some of my own criticism of the show unfounded. There are many subtle points I missed the first time watching and the writing staff deserve more credit. That said,...

The Blacklist Season 1 Finale - Berlin (No. 8) Conclusion Review

The Blacklist S1Ep19 The Pavlovich Brothers (No. 119–122) Review

Now for something completely different. Ever since late September last year we have wowed by James Spader’s diabolical performance of master criminal Raymond Reddington on The Blacklist. The show appears in many ways rather conventional. FBI Special Agent Elizabeth Keen (Megan Boone) is tasked to extract information from Raymond Reddington after he has turned himself in. Instead he gives her leads on the most dangerous criminals he has worked with ever since fall to the dark-side some 20 years back. Raymond Reddington sold classified information and...

Farscape principal cast

Farscape movie in early stages of production!

In a surprising twist it was announced by Farscape creator Rockne O’Bannon at WonderCon that a Farscape movie is in the works. It appears however that the movie is still in the early stages of development. Rockne O’Bannon is of course also known for creating the TV-show Defiance which will have its second season air this summer. The original Farscape series ran from 1999 to 2003 for 4 seasons. Certainly the first season was noted for its poor special effects that reminded me a lot of...

Hannibal Season 2 Episode 8 Su-zakana - Will and Hannibal with a gun

Hannibal Season 2 Episode 8 Su-zakana Review

Hannibal is a show that likes to play with its audience. Ever since the first scene of season 2 the audience has had to deal with the fact that they know how it will all end. Instead of slowly tightening the noose around Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) we are instead shown how he manipulates the situation to frame others. In the last two episodes that acted as mid-season cliffhangers Dr. Chilton was eventually charged with being the Chesapeake Ripper because...

Defiance Season 2 Preview

Defiance Season 2 Preview

Defiance Season 2 Preview On June 22nd (or 19th) Defiance will be back for its second season. Last year Syfy touted the show as a new direction, a first taste of many new science fiction shows to come. However, Defiance only partially lived up to expectations. The pilot episode was a dud and so a were a few others but towards the end the show found more solid footing with its organized crime theme. Defiance tries to strongly focus on the...

Hannibal S2Ep6 Futamono Review - Hannibal's latest victim

Hannibal S2Ep6 Futamono Review!

Ever since Hannibal started airing last year viewers have had the pleasure of seeing how show creator Brian Fuller manages to keep Hannibal Lecter at the forefront without conclusively revealing him as the cannibal everybody has been searching for. Hannibal Lecter almost resembles Superman, in that he is gifted beyond just luck and wields his alternate persona without having to go to any great lengths to change himself. Slowly however, the show is moving to the point where Hannibal will be revealed as the mass...

Elementary S2E19 The Many Mouths of Aaron Colville - Sherlock with sign help me catch a murderer

Elementary S2E19 The Many Mouths of Aaron Colville Review

Sherlock and Watson are back after a three-week hiatus with the episode ‘The Many Mouths of Aaron Colville’. So far season 2 of Elementary has not disappointed, the tension between Sherlock and detective Bell and his difficult relationship with his brother is always palpable. For her own part Lucy Liu plays Joan Watson to a tee, her character now brings her own not inconsiderable detecting skills to the show. However, with both Sherlock and Watson I sometimes have the feeling that...

Mentats Of Dune Free Giveaway!

The last two days have ben kind of hell for me as sadly my laptop decided that it was time to keel over. My old laptop is dead, long live my new laptop. Anyway, as such I had no way to write reviews of either Person of Interest, Agents of SHIELD and Revolution. So I will give a short recap to convince you to watch those episodes regardless. Person of Interest; Vigilance finally manage to get ahead of the curve by...

The Walking Dead season 4 finale -Daryl and Rick talk about the attack

The Walking Dead Season 4 Finale ‘A’ Review

The Walking Dead has just ended its fantastic fourth season. There were many deaths, and none were without controversy among fans. The Governor had a slightly less of a role than in season 3 but when he was there he was center stage in all his evilness. The Governor of course died in Episode 8 as did Hershel. Some fans disliked the second half of the season because of the way it split the entire gang up. I didn’t mind...

Helix season 1 finale - Billy Campbell as Dr. Alan Farragut in Paris

Helix season 1 finale Dans L’ombre Review

For the most part I have fond memories of Helix. Both the mystery of the NARVIK pathogen and the suspense it created reminded me a lot of Lost. Certainly the first 4 episodes used both the suspense and character drama deftly to let us get to know Dr. Alan Farragut, his estranged ex-wife Julia, Dr. Sarah Jordan, Hatake and Aerov. Then the show changed, I felt for the better, with introducing a wider world outside the base by introducing characters such...

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. S1 Episode 16 End of the Beginning Preview

With the ratings for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. slowly dipping the race is on to prevent the show from being cancelled at the end of its 22 episode first season run. I think the show is worth saving because of its very high entertainment value but only if some appropriate alterations are made. During the last few episodes we have already seen alterations such as changing the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization into a protagonist/antagonist organization as well as expanding the cast with characters from Marvel’s Universe. However,...

Edge of Tomorrow - Tom Cruise as Lt. Col. Cage

Edge Of Tomorrow trailer 2 released

On June 6th the first summer block buster Edge of Tomorrow will be released by Warner Bros. When I say block buster I of course hope the movie will fare well, but that is hardly guaranteed despite a cast such as Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt and a 110 million dollar budget. Edge of Tomorrow has so far failed to receive the stellar buzz that movies such as The Hunger Games: Catching Fire or Captain America: The Winter Soldier have. In...

Continuum Season 3 - Minute Man - Vancouver in 2067 not 2077

Continuum S3Ep2 Minute Man Review

The third season of Continuum is now in full swing with the episode Minute Man. Last week’s episode felt like a necessary reboot when it showed Alec and Kiera travelling back one week to undo the damage they did at the end of season 2. Kiera has a second agenda, she now works for the freelancers and hell-bent on stopping both Alec’s from making anymore mistakes. On top of that she has to solve a murder. That of her own,...
