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 […]

Here’s the trailer for Upgrade, in which actor Logan Marshall-Green is saved from life as a paralysed victim of crime by a spinal chip with an A.I. in it that can turn him into a super-soldier. Comes across as a buddy movie between Logan and his chip – shades of Rogue Trooper and his disembodied […]

The Meg (trailer): Jason Statham, dinosaur hunter?

Here’s the trailer for a new film called The Meg, in which actor Jason Statham will definitely need a bigger boat. In this case, to hunt down a Megalodon prehistoric shark that has come up from the depths in search of tasty humans. A little more classy than Sharknado, but does come across like a Jaws […]
