His Dark Materials (new BBC TV series).

There’s many reasons to mourn that fact that Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials fantasy novels were last sunk by the film version starring Daniel Craig – aka The Golden Compass – not least because its super-turkey status derailed every new fantasy movie being lined up at that time; including Stephen Hunt’s excellent Jackelian fantasy series […]

In Shape We Shift: an article by: GF Willmetts.

There are similarities between the fluid mechanics of pliable super-humans and that of shape-shifters but only as far as where some shape-shifters exaggerate their body shape. However, the common denominator is for them to manipulate their body mass in shape, colour and texture to resemble other people or, in some cases, objects. There is a […]

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World [2019] (a film review by Frank Ochieng).

Training an animated dragon after two successful previous films while appeasing the appreciative audience is the easy part.
