Movie review: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the fifth entry in the ever-expanding Jurassic Park saga, and the second film in the reboot series. After the success of the original Jurassic World, a sequel was inevitable. That’s the rule of Hollywood, right? It has to be said that after the first Jurassic Park, the original trilogy’s quality…

The Eternity War: Pariah – reviewed on SF Concatenation

Pariah has just been reviewed in the seminal SF Concatenation! Here’s an excerpt from the review: “Pariah is a brilliant beginning to the ‘Eternity War’ series. The characters are varied and subverted, and their conflicts shoulder most of the narrative weight. The world-building serves the narrative, and not the other way round, and it make…


Alien: The Cold Forge by Alex White

An original Alien book is something special in my reading calendar, and when Alex White’s The Cold Forge hit my radar late last year I was immediately interested. But that interest was tempered with a natural apprehension: in recent years, we’ve seen some serious letdowns to the Alien franchise. I’m still bitter from the experience…


Movie review: Avengers: Infinity War

Superhero movies are becoming increasingly common. It feels like only last week that Black Panther was in cinemas, and on the small screen The Defenders, Runaways and Jessica Jones season 2 have only just been released… Far from being event movies, the frequency of these releases means that audiences are becoming desensitised to the heroic in…

Book review: Battlemage (Age of Darkness 1) by Stephen Aryan

Regular visitors to my blog will know that although I’m an avid reader, I tend to read a fairly narrow range of genres. I like space opera, and I like military SF, and there are more than enough books in those genres to keep me going for a lifetime. When I need variety, the crossover…


Netflix review: Lost in Space (2018)

It sometimes seems that Hollywood – and the media industry generally – is caught in endless cycle of reboots. It’s often said that there are no new ideas anymore, and in the last few years we’ve seen an increasing number of reboots and reimaginings of classic films and series. Some have been good; with the…


Happy Easter and bonus review: Alien: Escape

Happy Easter to one and all! Today’s post is a bonus review, which is (very tenuously) linked to the season. This is my review of a London attraction that involves a very different sort of egg… Madame Tussauds is currently (as of April 2018) host to a unique attraction set in the Alien universe. Titled…
