Riddick 3 - Vin Diesel as Riddick

Riddick movie review!

Personally I wouldn’t have cared less if the Riddick franchise had stayed dead. The first two movies were so-so, entertaining but not brilliant. The games were OK but it wasn’t like they were really memorable. Yet, we have got ourselves a third Riddick movie. To my surprise it was quite good… for a pop-corn action movie that is. It is certainly not brilliant though it does have its moments. Riddick is perhaps a little bit maligned by a few scenes...

Rosario Dawson in Stargate Trilogy reboot

Roland Emmerich rebooting Stargate!

The long wait appears to be over for gaters. Roland Emmerich is rebooting the Stargate franchise that he originally started back in 1994. Sadly that means there will be no SG-1 or Atlantis movies. At least I seriously doubt it. According to Roland the series that were spawned by the 1994 movie were never really canon (I wouldn’t dare say that a convention). He also doesn’t think any of the original cast can make back into the new trilogy because they...

Slow Bullets by Alastair Reynolds Review

On The steel Breeze chapter 1 Online!

On The Steel Breeze For those readers who enjoyed ‘Blue Remembered Earth’ from Alastair Reynolds last can now read the first chapter of his upcoming novel ‘On The Steel Breeze’. This latest novel is a sequel to last years and the second in a planned trilogy called Poseidon’s Children.  Though last years ‘Blue Remembered Earth’ was not without it flaws I do belief that I have maligned a bit too much in my review, so better not search for it...

New Star Trek TV series - woman in skirt uniform

Star Trek Into Darkness available on iTunes!

Into Darkness for 14.99 Well, it’s the time of the season for digital downloads and Blu-Ray releases. After Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness were released during the early summer period we can now catch them on the rebound. Iron Man 3 has already been released for Blu-Ray but Star Trek Into Darkness will for now only released as a digital download on iTunes for 14.99. It at least gave me the possibility to re-watch this rather controversial release. Personally I...

Rachel Nichols as Kiera Cameron in 2077 - Continuum Second Guess

Continuum S2Ep11 Second Guess Review!

Another episode of Continuum has aired so we are up for another review. Just like last week’s episode we had another strong showing this week. It did not make the mistake of introducing too much drama and yet it addressed many issues that had bugged fans of the show for some time. It’s only downside is that it brings back plot points that have long been forgotten and so at times it can be a little bit confusing. Second Guess The episode...

Revolution season 2 banner - Elizabeth Mitchell, Billy Burke, Tracy Spiridakos and Giancarlo Esposito

Revolution season 2 trailer from Comic-Con!

The Comic-Con bliss continues with NBC releasing a lengthy preview trailer of Revolution’s second season. The trailer starts as so many before it with a brief recap of events of the first season. Then it shows the rather disheartening moments after Randall Flynn launches the ICBM’s at Philadelphia and Atlanta. It would seem that Aaron’s attempt at switching off the electricity to shut down the missiles will be in vain. That much has already been revealed by other sources. The trailer...

Haven Banner Syfy

Haven Season 4 Comic-Con Trailer!

As could be expected, Syfy took the opportunity to promote their flagship fantasy thriller Haven at this years Comic-Con. The lengthy trailer below at first just shows scenes that led up to the third season finale but eventually we get to see some new footage as well. What is clear is that our beloved group of characters are essentially split up. The half that stayed  behind will be joined by Colin Ferguson (Eureka) while those that went into the barn (Audrey and Duke et al.)...

Asa Butterfield as Ender Wiggin - Ender's Game

Ender’s Game Comic-con preview!

Of course one of the major Science-fiction movies of the year is to be released in November. Ender’s Game stars Harrison Ford and Asa Butterfield and is directed by Gavin Hood. The movie is of course based on the novel by Orson Scott Card. He was a...

Piper Perabo as Annie Walker - Covert Affairs season 4 Vamos

Covert Affairs season 4 premiere ‘Vamos’ Review!

Going Covert When it comes to sci-fi TV-shows we have hit the summer dry-spell. Only Continuum is on and I don’t care much for either Falling Skies or Under The Dome. As some reader may know I sometimes review other TV-shows as well. I have done Haven and Elementary. The latter mostly because I am a big Sherlock (Holmes) fan and I really dig Lucy Liu. I am also a big fan of the spy-craft genre and Covert Affairs is...

Travis using his CMR - Continuum Second Wave

Continuum S2Ep10 ‘Second Wave’ Review!

Second Wave After this weeks 10th episode of Continuum’s second season there will only be 3 more left until the season ends. So far the season has been pretty much a roller-coaster ride when it comes to plot development and quality. Luckily this weeks episode seems to set the stage for the seasons inevitable conclusion and it does this well. Kiera (Rachel Nichols) manages to capture Garza (Luvia Petersen) with Alec’s new Arc program that pretty much sucks in all real-time data...

Alice Eve wearing bra and panties (lingerie) in Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray out September 10th

Star Trek Into Darkness may have been a mixed bag but it is definitely a movie worth a second and third viewing just to understand it properly. For those not wanting to go a to an empty cinema there will soon be the possibility of owning a copy of the movie on DVD or Blu-ray complete with a whole host of extra’s. The release has been scheduled for September 10th for a tentative price of 19.99. Which I believe will just be...

Defiance - Stahma (Jaime Murray) - the poison is on the flask

Defiance season finale ‘Everything is Broken’ review

The first season finale of Defiance is entitled ‘Everything is Broken’ and that is a understatement. Plenty of characters are killed off and almost everybody’s world is turned over. Some people might hate the episode, but I think most will love it. It’s a show that has only slowly begun developing a pair of balls. The plot Nolan and Tommy continue their search for Irisa, who has disappeared. At the voting polls for the election Kenya suggests to Datak that Stahma has...

Kate Kelton as Jordan McKee - Haven - Thanks for the Memories

Haven season 4 promo released

Haven Last year I tucked into the third season of Haven and found the show a lot better than expected. I immediately watched the first two seasons as well and agreed with every fan that the third season was an incredible improvement. There were still some caveats though. The creative staff couldn’t keep up with the quality in the second half of the season, mostly due to budget issues would be my guess. Women The show also had a bit of a...

Old Julian Randol - Richard Harmon - Continuum

Continuum S2E9 ‘Seconds’ Review!

Mere seconds to boredom… For those who have kept up with reading Continuum episode reviews know that I think season 2 has been a let down. Sure some episodes were great but the series suffers with its poor drama and plot twists that are all over the map. This weeks episode entitled ‘Seconds’ is pretty much at the bottom of the pile. It starts on the wrong footing by pretending that the excellent episode 8 never occurred. No reference is made...
