The Alien saga has been full of questions since it started way back in the 1970's where an unknown Alien ship full of eggs leads to almost an entire crew being wiped out by a malevolent aggressive creature that sought to kill all that it found. The original alien ship had remains of a large … Continue reading Alien Covenant – A Sci-Fi film that could have been more
I missed out on watching Captain Marvel at the cinema, so I had to wait until it came out on the streaming services and as it happened it came out the other week and I watched it. But in the time it's taken me to watch it I've noticed a lot of hate and negativity … Continue reading Marvelling at a Marvel-ous Captain
When I saw the trailer for this film - I had to go see it. I can cannot stress how I really, really wanted to like this film. I had in my mind an Interstellar - esque feel with an original story line. I had no idea what to expect really. What follows is a … Continue reading AD Astra – As good as promised, or a lot of empty void?
Despite the fact I'm a massive sci-fi fan I rarely get to see the films actually when they come out. This was definitely the case with Even Horizon, which I've recently seen after its release over 20 years ago. First of all this film disagreed with me greatly becasue despite being a supposedly science fiction … Continue reading Event Horizon – 20 Years of waiting
I remember when this 2008 film came out, as usual I missed it and I have only recently been able to watch it. There are many similarities between this modern remake and the original film, as I remember I think this received poor reviews and many were critical of it but I can't see why, … Continue reading The Day the Earth Stood Still -How to Remake a Classic Well
I loved Oblivion it's a story with twists and turns. Full of big, powerful imagery and the sound track was amazing, it's a real SciFi gem in my opinion. The pictures I've put up on this post (found on google image search) show some of the start imagery the film uses, the broken moon, ruined cities … Continue reading Oblivion – What did I think?
Just the other day I watch the film The Martian on DVD having missed it at the cinema and had the DVD for months without having had chance to watch it. The story hinges around scientist Mark Watney (Matt Damon) left behind on Mars after a freak storm forces the Aries 3 landing team to … Continue reading Science fiction or possibility – The Martian
One of the films I remember from my younger days (long, long ago, not in a galaxy far, far away) was the Forbidden Planet. It's one of those old 1950's sci-fi films, made when colour films had only just come to being. If you've never seen it before don't let the age put you off, … Continue reading The Forbidden Planet
My god - it's full of stars! The words uttered by Dave Bowman as he's sucked into the star gate. The line was never used in the film, in fact there wasn't much of words used in the film. It was however full of beautiful and well selected music. The premise of the story … Continue reading 2001 – A Space Odyssey
As usual with films I was a bit behind when I saw this and it wasn't at the cinema. But I wish I had. The plot of this is uncomplicated, aliens attacking the Earth and the human race needs to stop them. Where the difference lies is that the aliens are coming from a portal … Continue reading Pacific Rim
I'm showing my age again when I tell you that I can remember when Tron first came out, with the dazzling blue lighted scenery, and a brilliantly different storyline making a film which we had never seen before or since. So when Tron Legacy came out it begged the question, is this just Tron re-made … Continue reading Tron legacy – amazingly unique or just brilliant CGI?
The other day I go the opportunity to watch a film I've had my eye on for ages - Interstellar. In short it's about an Earth that is dying and the efforts of one man and his crew to find a suitable planet for the human race to live on. The human race is not … Continue reading Interstellar
