Hobbity goodness.

Peter Jackson has just released a whole slew of new cast photos from The Hobbit movie. Very nice. Of course, this one is going to be a hit – but I know a few die-hard LoTR fans (yes, you, Andy) who are not so chuffed about making a rather short novel like The Hobbit into […]

The Doc’s in town.

No, the other Doc – the Doctor. Indeed, it’s time for some more BBC-led teasing for Saturday’s new series Doctor Who, pardner. The West is about get a lot wilder, and more wibbly-wobbly-westy, no doubt.

First worlds discovered around Sun-like stars in a cluster.

NASA-funded astronomers have, for the first time, spotted planets orbiting sun-like stars in a crowded cluster of stars. The findings offer the best evidence yet planets can sprout up in dense stellar environments.

Kill him by ten in the AM or you’re dead too!

And that about sums up this mafia old boys movie, Stand-up Guys, where Al Pacino is a mobster just released from jail after sixty years, and Christopher Walken is his best friend tasked with whacking him out. This movie ain’t sleeping with the fishes, but after TV series like the Wire, it’s certainly a return […]

Ah, the rousing music and the raw themes of history and one of its greatest sons. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln is here. Watch the new full trailer for the film and tell me that this is not the movie that Steven Spielberg was fitted to the times to create?

Don’t blame the zombies.

There’s a new trailer for the Walking Dead, in which the living bigots once again prove their prejudices against their non-life’d citizens. Shocking stuff.
