Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom: the park is gone. What about the movie?

Here’s the last trailer for the Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom movie, which looks rather like a TV series called Dinosaur Rescue. Except this one doesn’t feature the Battersea Home, just some extreme Pratt-taming. Come on, you know you want to!

Activation (The GAIA Series book 1 of 3) by M.G. Gilibert (book review)

I like stories about Artificial Intelligence (AI) although they can be formulaic. The usual story is AI starts nice, AI turns bad. What happens after that is usually what distinguishes the story. In ‘Activation’ by M.G. Gilibert we have a Science Fiction book that follows the formula but has a few distinguishing characteristics. Firstly, the […]

The latest weekly instalment of Thrill Power is out now in 2000AD Prog 2076. ‘Judge Dredd: Flaws’ (Part One) opens the issue. Higson Plaza is a divided community with one block supporting law enforcement and the other block bitterly resenting them. Sometimes, they fight. Reporter Mo Malik is more interested in a good story than […]

Cube: Inside The Making Of A Cult Classic by A.S. Berman (book review).

Before reading this book, if you haven’t seen the 1997 film ‘Cube’ in a while, pick up a copy and watch first. I pulled the boxset of the trilogy, mostly because I hadn’t seen the other two films, so expect a review of it when I complete watching it. Even without re-watching it, I remembered […]

Robot Takeover by Ana Matronic (book review).

Another book I pulled myself last year and only now having a little time to fit in is ‘Robot Takeover’ by Ana Matronic, a member of the Sissors Sisters if you didn’t know, which I didn’t, and a robot geek. The sub-title of this book is ‘100 Iconic Robots Of Myth, Popular Culture & Real […]

The Ion Raider (book 2) by Ian Whates (book review).

Second books of either a trilogy or a series are notoriously difficult to write, especially if it is accepted that some readers will not have seen the first book. Somehow information needs to be conveyed about the characters that continue from one book to the other, the setting has to be re-established without boring previous […]

Welcome To Dystopia: 45 Visions Of What Lies Ahead edited by Gordon Van Gelder (book review).

Gordon Van Gelder says in his preface to ‘Welcome To Dystopia’ that he wanted lots of short stories for this anthology rather than just a few long ones. He succeeded. There are forty-five tales packed in here and even the most meticulous reviewer isn’t going to cover all of them, though I have read them […]

Curvature (film trailer).

Curvature is a time travel conspiracy movie about an engineer who needs to travel back in time to stop herself from committing a murder. This one stars Terminator‘s Linda Hamilton, which is rather fitting given it’s all about time travel. I wonder if Linda did this as a nod and a sly wink towards her […]
