Movie review: The Predator

  The Predator is easily my most anticipated movie of 2018. It feels like it has been forever in the works: with an initial release date for spring 2018, which then drifted back to September this year. However, behind the excitement lurked a trepidation as well – and the news of reshoots and plot issues…


Comic review: Fire and Stone – the Collected Edition

This week, the Alien and Predator universe receives a new injection of canon, with the release of The Predator. I’m got mixed feelings about the revisiting of such a well-loved classic, but it encouraged me to dip back into the Alien and Predator expanded universe. Earlier this year we saw the release of Aliens: The…

Movie review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

Ant-Man was a surprise hit of 2015. Adopting the Guardians of the Galaxy formula, the movie managed to balance humour with action, diverging from the standard Marvel template just enough to carve out its own niche. The ending of Ant-Man – as well as the film’s box office success – pretty much guaranteed a sequel….


Blu ray review: Ready Player One

Ready Player One started life as a book by Ernest Cline, and on its release on 2011 it very quickly acquired a cult status. By the time I came to it (a few months after its release), the buzz around Cline’s book was very nearly irresistible. It was pretty inevitable, therefore, that Ready Player One…


Breaking news: Dark Horse releasing Gibson’s Alien 3

                    Dark Horse Comics has just announced that William Gibson’s unmade Alien 3 script is going to be made into a comic book. On the face of it, this is a brash move. The script is now decades old, and I’m sure that many casual Alien…


Book review: The Massacre of Mankind by Stephen Baxter

The Massacre of Mankind is the second time that Stephen Baxter has revisited one of the many worlds of HG Wells. In 1995, he wrote The Time Ships – a sequel to The Time Machine. I haven’t read Time Ships, but War of the Worlds is a different beast, and one that is perhaps the…


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…
