Lost in the Cloud Atlas.

Here’s the latest trailer for the SF film Cloud Atlas. It will be interesting to see if this does as well as the scifi movie Looper, which has been leaving far more critics that usual breathless and raving about the film. We haven’t seen it here yet, but it’s on the list. Two very different […]

A hard Hobbit to break? New trailer!

Is this the 3rd new trailer for the first in the Hobbit trilogy of movies from Peter Jackson (how strange it still sounds to hear that word, trilogy, attached to the project), or the second? I’d go for third. There was a second trailer, but it was a bit of a swizz – a reworking […]

Arrow of death?

We know, we sympathize, it should be Green Arrow. But frankly, after Smallville ending, we’re happy to take any DC-branded superhero action that comes out way.

Warehouse 13 gets steampunked.

Did you think the steampunk artefacts held in Warehouse 13, and some of their plots (meet HG Wells, serial killer) were accidental? Not a bit of it, sir, as this spiffing documentary from the production team would like to make clear.
