    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Stranger in a strange land – Heinlein

    Definitely one that is a classic of the SciFi genre, Stranger in a Strange Land is actually quite a hefty and difficult book. Heinlein‘s writing style is very evident throughout this book and this is probably one of his most famous works. The story while based in the future, is definitely driven by the current […]

    Transformers: Age Of Extinction Review

    I went into the fourth installment in the Transformers movie franchise, “Transformers: Age Of Extinction” (AOS) as a Michael Bay Transformers movie veteran. Gone was the awe and childlike wonder of seeing the heroes of my youth recreated on screen in all of their majestic, high-definition glory. Long gone was the hope of experiencing a […]

    Star Warfare 2 – Payback

    Star Warfare 2 – Payback is a game from Freyr Software I came across in the Apple app store. Right away, it looked like something interesting. This game is a fairly simple sci-fi shooter with a variety of game modes. The story is that a space-faring organization called the UNCC discovered a revolutionary substance on a planet where […]
