After Earth… the future can eat you.

M. Night Shyamalan is back in the game with his latest science fiction movie, After Earth, joining Tom Cruise’s Oblivion in the far-future-fucked-Earth sub-genre. Whereas Oblivion is kind of Wall-E-ish, this one is more a mutant future wildlife flick, with Will and Jaden Smith doing a spacemen Robinson Crusoe act as they try to get […]

Last Gasp, a story by: GF Willmetts (fiction).

There once was a time people could walk in the open until they were blue in the face. I wonder if they would have thought it would be so true today as I peered into the smog about me, carefully inhaling my own limited air supply. It was my own fault really. I thought I’d […]

Oblivion… third trailer.

And here’s the 3rd trailer for the Tom Cruise headliner, Oblivion (with added Morgan Freeman). Still slightly tickled by the novel feeling of having an original science fiction movie heading our way rather than another comic-strip-into-film jobbie, or straight film reboot of one more 1980s scifi flick/TV series. Who knows, maybe it’ll start a trend. […]
