The Geek Manifesto: Why Science Matters by Mark Henderson (book review).

With our move at SFC to looking more geeky than we already were, spotting a book called ‘The Geek Manifesto’ made me determined to take a look and the nice people at Bantam Press were happy to supply a book that was released earlier in 2012. As the sub-title ‘Why Science Matters’ places it ever […]

Searching (story).

a very short story by: GF Willmetts Something I take as routine with my time on the Internet is to look for aliens. I mean. If they are on Earth, then they have to come from an advanced hi-tech society and wouldn’t have any problems linking into the protocols and doing what I’m doing: looking […]

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) (movie review).

  ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ is the first film of Peter Jackson’s follow-up trilogy to ‘The Lord Of The Rings’. The result is good, where great was expected. It has a lot of the virtues of the previous films, but does not offer a lot that the previous trilogy did not and where it […]

Pacific Rim – 1st trailer is Monster!

We like big Bots (or should that be mecha) and we cannot lie. If you want to know what Guillermo del Toro has been up to, then look no further than this Mecha versus Monster movie – a very Japanese genre of film given a very Western twist, as the world’s military combines to build […]

The Hobbit cast get it on with their Lego Minifigs.

Call this shameless marketing for Lego Minifigs if you will… we’re just a corporate whore at heart, but let’s face it, if Lego made a Minifig of you, wouldn’t you be proud of it? The cast of The Hobbit certainly are!

Jack the Giant Slayer new poster.

X-men bod Bryan Singer does a classic fairy tale as only he knows how in Jack the Giant Slayer. Big poster, bug budget movie. But will there be big numbers settling down to watch this film? Time will tell.

Dwarves now drinking at the Green Dragon Inn. Smaug not invited.

The Hobbiton Movie Set – where The Hobbit was filmed – has just opened The Green Dragon Inn, the ribbon cut by none other than The New Zealand Prime Minister, John Key (yes, they take things that seriously). Now tourists as well as dwarves can get some of that Shire ale down their necks. Heck, […]

Transformers 4 – Mark Wahlberg’s the daddy.

When Shia LaBeouf has been written out of the fourth Transformers movie, what’s a studio to do? Well, Michael Bay has spoken, and it looks like they have cast Mark Wahlberg as the father of one of the two young new stars who are about to become the giant transforming robot’s pet human monkeys… actor […]

Lone Ranger? Don’t be a stranger! Second trailer.

One of the early superheroes of the Wild West is coming back our way via next year’s The Lone Ranger film. This oddity has Johnny Depp as Tonto (the American Indian community must be so proud) and Armie Hammer as the USA’s answer to Zorro. I used to have this pair as Action Men-style plastic […]
