Curiosity mission as Spielberg would have done it.

We’ve all seen the recent footage of the landing on Mars from NASA. It was great, if a little low-res. Enter film maker Bard Canning who has taken the footage, cleaned it up, and made an amazing HD movie of how the landing would have looked if we had sent Spielberg to the Red Planet […]

Finding Frankenweenie.

You can’t keep a good Tim Burton down (unless you’re Helena Bonham Carter), and the rogue and roguish filmmaker is back with his latest animated movie, Frankenweenie. The film should have been titled, Frankenstein: the Junior Years, but what the hey. It might have sounded less like a brand of hot dogs, then. Although there […]

Good Knight?

The graphic novel that re-sparked Batman from being a camp crusader against crime into a brooding vigilante, Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, is now coming back at us as a Warner Brothers animated ‘toon.

Actors from the new NBC science fiction TV series Revolution talk about what they would do if modern Earth lost all power and we went back to the dark ages. Hmmm. Buy guns. Lots and LOTS of guns. And tinned food. And a horse. And a good collection of paper books. And kiss your Kindle/iTunes […]

Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth.

Yes, it’s the new trailer from the movie Lincoln. He’s a dead President, don’t you know. He also slays lots of vampires, demons and zombies. Just not in this film.

Vere are your papers, native?

It’s another viral for the return of Fringe to the TV screens of America. And maybe Europe. Those invading time-travelling nasties from the future really don’t want you getting about. Fringe will be back with you by the end of this month. Unless you live in Parallel 67890, in which case you’re still living under […]
