With every new release, my disdain for horror films swells with contempt. Lifeless CGI and high production values have reduced this storied genre into a bag of monotonous tricks and repetitious cliches. However, every now and then a great film is released which re-energizes my enthusiasm and hope for the future. [Read more…]
Yes, zombies have been done to death, and this movie doesn’t really break any new ground, but this one is a solid experience, and it’s refreshing to see something put together this well.
So if you’re looking for something that’s suspenseful, claustrophobic, and has a lot of action scenes, I’d recommend giving this one a look. [Read more…]
It’s the characters and the storyline that keep me coming back for more. And I really love the actors involved. It’s a testament to how well done the show is that I want more screen time for almost all of the main supporting characters. I’d like them all to have to be on Dutch’s ship so that we could see them all the time. [Read more…]
Kubo and the Two Strings is not your ordinary animated film and if you are looking for a Disney type film, this might not be for you. But I found it beautiful and heartwarming with excellent use of stop motion effects. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren really enjoyed Pete’s Dragon, and think the reimagining doesn’t harm the original, while still managing to tell an engaging (if perhaps a little overlong) story. [Read more…]
I was hooked before the first episode finished, and by the end of episode 4, “Vessel”, I’d begun to joke that in Killjoys I’d found my new Firefly… but it wasn’t until well after Season 1 had finished airing and I’d begun to really think about the show that I realized my running joke was more true than I had imagined at the time.
For me, Killjoys is the new Firefly. [Read more…]
Five episodes in, how does the second season of Dark Matter rate against the first? Reviews on first season were mixed. The story is dark and the characters are not heroes. They do make questionable choices at time, but I find the writers handle those dilemmas well and the second season is even better than the first one. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren had high hopes for Suicide Squad, and were prepared to give DC every benefit of the doubt, thinking that maybe since all the characters weren’t as well known outside the comics aficionados that chances would be taken with them and the story. [Read more…]
Stories about ordinary people surviving and overcoming extraordinary situations are almost a dime a dozen — like apocalyptic catastrophes, supernatural disasters, and paranormal horrors — but outside of fantastical realms about costumed superheroes (or heroes in hiding), there aren’t quite as many stories about extraordinary people surviving extraordinary situations where their abilities may cause just as much harm as good (characters featured in the Marvel Netflix set of series notwithstanding).

The official music video for Sci-Fried’s latest single “A Tall Ship” is a tribute to all the friends and family they have made over the years with Star Trek fans. [Read more…]
Star Trek means a lot to me personally as a kid I got into Star Wars, but when I got to my teens and 20’s I was drawn to Star Trek and it’s view of what could be our own future. [Read more…]
The Perseid meteor shower is an always-anticipated feature of the August night sky. Look for meteors during the early morning hours of August 12th and 13th [Read more…]
