The Andromeda Strain (1971) (Blu-ray film review).

I’ve always had some affection for ‘The Andromeda Strain’. Next to ‘2001’, it was probably one of first hard science SF films I’d seen with a no-star cast, although I did recognise James Olsen from ‘The Time Tunnel’ as I originally saw this film when it first came out. This is also the first book […]

Godzilla: King Of The Monsters (2019)   (movie review).

In ‘Godzilla: King Of The Monsters’, the film’s plot picks up 5 years after the events of the last film, ‘Godzilla’ (2014), when eco-terrorist anarchists led by Alan Jonah begin freeing the Titans, in an attempt to restore the natural order. The central message the film peddles is the rather simplistic humanity=bad, nature=good. We are […]
