Starship Troopers: Traitor Of Mars (2017) (Blu-ray film review).

I haven’t seen the three films that followed the original ‘Starship Troopers’ (1997), although you don’t need them to follow this adventure. The directors of ‘Starship Troopers: Traitor Of Mars’ in the extras do explain that they wanted this film more closer to Heinlein’s original 1959 book and have the marauder power-suits do thing that […]

Wild Cards 1: Expanded Edition edited by George RR Martin (book review)

With the TV success of ‘Game Of Thrones’, it’s hardly surprising that the studios want something more with George RR Martin’s name attached to it.

This initially launches as an exclusive for the new MGM Stargate Command All Access streaming service. Yes, yet another pay-to-view service you’re being expected to stump up for. I expect that certain dodgy […]
