Tracy Spiridakos as Charlie in Revolution

Revolution season 1 finale ‘The Dark Tower’ Review!

The finale. And so the first season of Revolution has ended. To many it should be it’s only season but we will be getting another one at the end of the year. I have not yet decided whether Revolution deserves a reprieve as it is very rough and certainly not all diamond underneath. The season finale ‘The Dark Tower’ tries its best to make up for all the mistake and give viewers a reason to tune back in this fall and for...

Liev Schreiber in Last Days on Mars

Last days on Mars preview + trailer!

Last Days on Mars… The genre of Science-fiction thriller defined by movies such as Alien and The Thing has been considered dead for well over two decades. It quickly become the domain of cheap B-movies or senselessly epic action movies. True thrillers with a good dose of science that take place on another plant or space station were hard to come by. However, ever since Duncan Jones’s Moon from 2009 the genre is again alive and kicking. Fans can look forward to...

Elizabeth Mitchell as Rachel Matheson talking to Monroe - Revolution

Revolution S1 episode 18 ‘Children of Men’ Review!

Revolution has been a in a dark place for some episodes now. At first the second half of season 1 saw some good improvements but quickly episodes started stalling and make impossible leaps in character development. The low point was when Monroe’s right hand man Jeremy Baker (Mark Pellegrino) was killed off. Last weeks episode was a bit of an improvement but it still forced Charlie and Miles in particular to fly in a helicopter they had stolen in order to...

Dillon's replacement - Continuum

Continuum S2Ep5 ‘Second Opinion’ Review!

Continuum is back from a two-week hiatus. The episode before the break (Second Skin) was probably the low point in the series so far. Alas this weeks episode entitled ‘Second Opinion’ is better but not very exciting. It feels a bit like a bottle show in that there few special effects or action scenes. However, this is made up by the drama which at least allows the character Kiera Cameron (Rachel Nichols) express repressed sentiments that gave her a bit of...

Inferno (Dan Brown) - banner

Dan Brown’s Inferno review!

As regular visitors know this website mostly focuses on Science-fiction, but sometimes I will review other popular media. Dan Brown’s Inferno that was released about a week and half ago kind of falls into that class despite the fact it has sci-fi elements. Ever since the novel The Lost Symbol from 2009 have I been waiting for a another book. You might say that I got hooked on Dan Brown through The Lost Symbol. As for his earlier works such as The Da Vinci...

Enterprise season 2 Blu-ray arrives August 20th!

Enterprise season 2 Blu-ray arrives August 20th!

Now that Star Trek Into Darkness has hit the cinema’s there is almost a Star Trek craze that I feel wasn’t there 4 years ago. That said, Star Trek Into Darkness has received some mixed reviews that seem to have repercussions for its box-office earnings. Generally there is a feeling that the plot is a bit bloated in some areas while the character development is minimal. None of that matters when Enterprise season 2 finally comes to Blu-ray on august...

Warehouse 13 S4E14 ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ Review!

Warehouse 13 S4E14 ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ Review!

Warehouse 13 has been back for its second half of season 4 for two episodes now. Honestly, the series had kind of popped off my radar screen as Defiance, Continuum and Revolution are also on. To make matters worse, the first episode was one very big dud. However, last’s weeks episode ‘The Big Snag’ was one of the more enjoyable outings as Pete and Myka found themselves locked into 1940’s crime novel. The quality of the production was definitely noteworthy....

Star Trek Into Darkness Review!

Star Trek Into Darkness Review!

Finally I have been able to see Star Trek Into Darkness in at the cinema. If it wasn’t just only for the fact that I am a veritable Trekkie that I wanted to see it but also to finally be able to put aside the continuous promotion of the movie that has gone on for weeks now. Star Trek Into Darkness is of course J.J. Abrams second Star Trek outing. It acts as a sequel to the 2009 movie that significantly raised...

Iron Man 3 Review!

Iron Man 3 Review!

Fans are finally able to watch the third Iron Man installment in cinema’s. After the disappointing second movie and the fantastic The Avengers expectations for Iron Man 3 were high. For the most part those expectations have been fulfilled, but there are a few wrinkles here and there. I like this movie more than I did the original Iron Man mainly because of its depth. However, the movies villains are just as shallow and un-memorable as before. As per the fact that...

Defiance gets renewed for second season by Syfy!

Defiance gets renewed for second season by Syfy!

After just 5 episodes into its first season Syfy has already given its news flagship show Defiance the benefit of the doubt. Syfy has renewed the show for another 13-episodes that will start airing in 2014. The announcement is surprising for several reasons. So far the quality has been uneven. A lot of viewers are confused about the background world. A situation that echoes what happened with Farscape 10 years back. Also the ratings have so far been steadily dropping over the course of...

Defiance ep4 ‘A Well Respected Man’ review!

Defiance ep4 ‘A Well Respected Man’ review!

A Well Respected Man is the fourth episode of Defiance (5 if you count the pilot as 2). So far the show has been mediocre at best and tedious as worst. Luckily this weeks episode turns that around. It is quick, brisk and has a lot of character development. It also manages to portray some events from the pilot, such as Luke’s death, as a bit more mysterious than what it might have been at first glance. I like this episode, I...

Ender’s Game trailer released!

Ender’s Game trailer released!

A few weeks ago I gave a small preview on Ender’s Game after several still pictures were released. Last week a teaser trailer was released but today we are also the happy recipient of the full trailer for Ender’s Game. The movie is scheduled for a November 1st release in the US and will star Asa Butterfield (Hugo) as Ender Wiggin, Harrison Ford as Colonel Graff and Hailee Steinfeld as Petra Arkanian. Last week along with the teaser trailer a still was released showing Ben Kingsley...

Continuum S2Ep3 ‘Second Thoughts’ Review!

Continuum S2Ep3 ‘Second Thoughts’ Review!

Last weeks episode of Continuum was hardly the shows best. The plot felt a bit too forced as the writers tried to push the characters into a new direction. Alec quitting his job to work for Kellog and Liber8 turning on each other are examples. However, against all odds this weeks episode of Continuum is able to capitalize on this new situation by seriously putting every character out of their comfort zone. I must warn anyone before viewing this episode,...

Person of Interest ‘God mode’ Preview!

Person of Interest ‘God mode’ Preview!

I am glad to see that the Person of Interest finale scheduled for Thursday evening is so hotly anticipated by viewers online. As I mentioned in last weeks review of Zero Day PoI had some problems during the middle of its second season with character being killed off just because the actors playing them had scheduling conflicts. At this moment PoI is in as special sweet spot when it comes to plot development. So much so that a part of...
