Snowpiercer S01E02 Prepare to Brace Review

After last weeks premiere of Snowpiercer I was very much looking forward to episode 2. Usually the second episode focuses on setting up the backstory and take a break from the hectic plotting of the premiere. Snowpiercer is no different. Former detective Andre Layton is quickly pushed into conducting his homicide investigation of one of […]

Preview of Tenet directed by Christopher Nolan

It seems that with every release the movies of Christopher Nolan get weirder. This is the director that created Memento in 2000 starring Guy Pierce and Carrie-Anne Moss, and Memento is one mind boggling movie. In fact, the three Batman movies starring Christian Bale are a fluke in that regard. After Batman first came Inception […]

A solid start to Snowpiercer starring Jennifer Connolly

In 2013 we got the Korean / American produced movie Snowpiercer. Set on a train in a future in which the world has frozen over. Only those on the train can survive, as long as it keeps rolling. To top off this already weird plot premise there is class inequality onboard, depending on your choice […]

Preview of The Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson

Today I write a short preview forThe Ministry for the Future. There are a number of science fiction authors of which I read every single novel published. Alastair Reynolds, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Charles Stross and of course Kim Stanley Robinson. Just as with the others I have read every entry in his bibliography. In […]

William Gibson’s The Peripheral adapted as series for Amazon

For years I have waited for an adaptation of William Gibson’s seminal cyberpunk novel Neuromancer. In fact, I even posted what was believed to be some concept art intended to woe potential investors. Alas that has so far all been in vain. This despite names such as that of director Vincenzo Natali being attached. Instead, […]

Review of The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, The Witcher Anthologies by Andrzej Sapkowski

Since the fall of last year I have become obsessed with The Witcher. The stories written by Andrzej Sapkowski revolve around the character Geralt of Rivia set in the medieval-styled fantasy world. On the face of it, it all sounds simple. Geralt has been enhanced through drugs and magic to become a monster slayer, which […]

Review of The Sandman: Dream Country by Neil Gaiman

After nearly two months I thought it time to review another issue of The Sandman comic by Neil Gaiman. Volume # 3 is entitled Dream Country and covers issues 17 to 20. That means with just 4 issues its a little shorter than the others. However, it does come with the original long form script […]

Review Star Wars: Doctor Aphra (2020-) #1

With the Covid-19 pandemic continuing unabated more repercussions are being felt. Marvel is having to delay the release of new comic issues. Which is why I have not reviewed any new editions for Star Wars 2020, Darth Vader 2020 and Blade Runner 2019. Luckily, back on Force Monday Marvel did publish the first issue of […]

Westworld S03E08 Crisis Theory Review

With Westworld S03E08 Crisis Theory the season has come to an end. While I do not believe this was a bad season it certainly did not end well. In fact, you could pretty much guess how it would end and you would probably be right. It is difficult to say where it went wrong. Too […]

Westworld S03E07 Passed Pawn Review

I must admit, there is a little bit of Westworld fatigue setting in. After seeing the episode “Passed Pawn” of Westworld I am wondering where all this is leading up to? In fact, I am wondering just exactly what this show is all about and what I should expect out of it. That is generally […]
