    Star Trek – The Ultimate Computer review

    In tribute to Leonard Nimoy in his time of passing, I wanted to say something about the series itself. The Ultimate Computer isn’t my favourite episode, but it’s the episode where I first realized the series’ deeper meanings. My Father admired the show when I was young and I had been exposed to quite a […]

    Fan fiction, DooM – Portal to Chaos, Chapter 5

    Chapter V – Ritualistic Behaviour “I’m not paid to ask questions about shipments, I just deliver the cargo” states the shady freighter Captain in the large, bright hangar bay. A sharp winged shuttle with a reinforced rear section filled the area, two levels of scaffolding rimmed the hangar’s walls. Corporal Revok stared silently at the […]

    Star Trek Deep Space Nine – Devil in the Sky

    I enjoy DS9 because I find that a space station is an interesting setting, I’m curious about the different situations that might happen there and this book really delivered for me on that front. In the original series episode, Devil in the dark, we were introduced to what seems to be one of the series’ most […]

    Daredevil: The Greatest Superhero Movie That Nobody Liked

      On January 7th, Marvel and Netflix announced the release date for the latest live-action adaptation of the Daredevil franchise. Marvel’s Daredevil will make its entire 13-episode season available to stream on April 10th, much to the delight of compulsive bingers everywhere. Fans of the visually impaired vigilante are looking forward to a series that is 12 […]

    The Fifth Element (1997)

    1997 was an amazing year for SciFi flicks with some of the most classic and iconic films and franchises either starting or continuing.  I mean we had Starship Troopers (based on the book by Robert Heinlein), Men in Black (with the awesome Will Smith), Event Horizon, Star Trek: First Contact & for the more cerebral Contact (based on book by Carl Sagan) and Gattaca.  Each of these films deserve a […]

    Is Interstellar the perfect date night movie for Valentines day?

    Now you might not think a dystopian future with humanity on the brink of extinction, space travel, wormholes, black holes, ice planets and astronauts are your typical date night movie but let’s actually look at all of the facts here!  If you and your date/partner/spouse are somewhat intelligent (and as you’re reading this website, I […]

    Jupiter Ascending – so bad it’s good?

    I’d like to think that I’m an unbiased reviewer – aside from my predilection towards Comics, SciFi and Fantasy of course – and as such can look at a movie with an un-jaundiced eye.  Someone that can enjoy it for the good and look (mostly) beyond the bad to get to the underlying story and […]

    Joss Whedon Vs. Phil Coulson Part 2

    As I start writing this today we’ve been dealt the “shocking” blow that Joss Whedon formerly @JossWhedon has left twitter… again. As some might recall he left a few months ago and only returned for fear of what would be his unloved child Much Ado About Nothing for the free promotion. What I really want […]

    ENDER’S GAME

    In the not too distant future, mankind has barely survived two wars with an alien race – the Formics (also known as Buggers) – and the IF (International Fleet) has determined that it is time to take the battle to bugs! Ender and the other genius children of Earth are taken into a training center […]

    ENDER’S GAME (MOVIE)

    I’ve already written a review of the book Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and to be honest it is one of my most favorite books … EVER.  I think that has to some extent colored my review of the movie which is perhaps unfortunate for those that haven’t read the book.  For those of […]

    Joss Whedon Vs. Phil Coulson

    This morning I read a recent Q&A Joss Whedon @josswhedon did with Dana Schwartz over at mental floss and I have to say some of his answers really raised my eye brows here and there. DS: People don’t really stay dead in Marvel movies. I think we’ve had to deal with Loki dying four, five, […]
