Others take full advantage of that setting. […]

The Noise Revealed by Ian Whates (book review).

‘The Noise Revealed’ is the sequel to ‘The Noise Within’ and I’m sorry to say, I still have no idea what any of it has to do with the main aspect of the plot. As revealed last time, ‘The Noise Within’ is a sentient spaceship that went missing, discovered and returned with the first members […]

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 […]

Oblivion… first trailer for Tom Cruise flick.

No sooner do we have the Planet of the Apes-ish poster for this science fiction film showing Tom ogling a broken-down New York of the future, than the trailer comes our way – some would say leaked, but who are we to judge? To me, this one has echoes of the old Silent Running film, with […]

Oblivion… first poster for Tom Cruise scifi epic.
