Matrix returns with new Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss sequel film (news).

There’s a new Matrix film in the pipe from Warner Bros Pictures with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss due to reprise their roles.

Disney-Sony feud removes Spider-Man from MCU (news).

The ongoing feud between Disney and Sony has sadly resulted in the Spider-Man licence being yanked from Disney-Marvel and the MCU, which rather leaves the last film ending on an unresolved cliffhanger, not to mention the unmitigated horror of having to face another Sony reboot origin story taking us back to square one. Ahrrrrrrrrrrr! https://deadline.com/2019/08/kevin-feige-spider-man-franchise-exit-disney-sony-dispute-avengers-endgame-captain-america-winter-soldier-tom-rothman-bob-iger-1202672545/ […]

A Letter Column In The Kingdom Of SFCrowsnest

We’ve been debating for a long time to have a letters column on SFCrowsnest, aside from our comments to particular subjects or reviews, without compromising our security measures.

Editorial – July 2019  :   All hail the geek outsider.

Hello everyone Having reviewed ‘The History Of Cults: From Satanic Sects To The Manson Family by Robert Schroëder’ this month, I was amazed how many were still active and how the press hasn’t raised much issue about them in a few years.
