Resident Evil: Retribution (Frank’s Take).

The predictable ritual of enduring the Resident Evil film franchise is a critical cross that most film critics have to bear. Think of it as the occupational hazard of the profession. Now in all fairness there are countless filmmakers that milk a movie series regardless of its repetitive, rancid quality. Certainly Len Wiseman immediately comes […]

Zero Hour, a new TV series, and the most fun since a certain whip-cracking hero went in search of a lost Ark. A hidden cult has hidden some terrible secrets inside a series of old clock mechanisms. The Nazis once did anything to get their hands on it, and came very close. Sadly for Hank […]

First worlds discovered around Sun-like stars in a cluster.

NASA-funded astronomers have, for the first time, spotted planets orbiting sun-like stars in a crowded cluster of stars. The findings offer the best evidence yet planets can sprout up in dense stellar environments.

Don’t blame the zombies.

There’s a new trailer for the Walking Dead, in which the living bigots once again prove their prejudices against their non-life’d citizens. Shocking stuff. One day Rick and his band of marauding killers will be held to account. Or eaten. Probably eaten. Thanks to SFX for bringing this piece of gruesome evil to our attention.

Curiosity mission as Spielberg would have done it.

We’ve all seen the recent footage of the landing on Mars from NASA. It was great, if a little low-res. Enter film maker Bard Canning who has taken the footage, cleaned it up, and made an amazing HD movie of how the landing would have looked if we had sent Spielberg to the Red Planet […]

Beyond the junior-sized Jupiter: A nostalgic Sci-Fi sampling for kids from yesteryear.

As a child coming of age in the decade of the 1970’s, children’s programming was crucial for me and other adventurous tykes looking for futuristic escapism particularly if you had science fiction leanings or harbored the appreciation for fantasy that removed you from the world of other silly-minded kiddie fare that did not cater to […]
