Flatliners (2017)

Hands up if you didn’t realise this was a remake of a 1990s Kevin Bacon film So, my hand is up. Especially when I made the connection halfway home after viewing the 2017 reimagining. Flatliners posed a really interesting question at the beginning of it’s film as it questions what happens to us after we... Continue Reading →

Alien: Covenant (2017)

Ridley Scott returned to his famous franchise with Prometheus back in 2012. If you were anything like myself, you could not wait for the next instalment in the Alien franchise. So fast-forward five years and Scott has followed up the whirlwind piece of Prometheus with Alien: Covenant. Now while it’s not important to have seen... Continue Reading →

Ghost In The Shell (2017)

I had a strange sense of apprehension when heading into the viewing of Ghost In The Shell, but not because of the controversy that surrounded the casting of Scarlett Johansson, but probably because of my sheer enjoyment from the trailers. This futuristic world that was shown was wonderfully fascinating, seeing behemoths of advertising, but also... Continue Reading →

This time it’s Amy Adams... Continue Reading →

One of my favourites is Danny Boyle’s space epic Sunshine and I have enjoyed the very peculiar Solaris, the whimsical adventure of The Martian and the mind-bendingness of Interstellar. So naturally, I am led to Duncan Jones’ directorial debut of Moon. Funnily... Continue Reading →

Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013)

This is strange. I watched this at the cinema and loved it, but never got round to posting a blog on it confessing my somewhat love for the sequel to JJ Abrams newly-imagined Star Trek franchise. I re-watched this on DVD and I must admit, these lovestruck feelings soon disappeared. So, if you've been living... Continue Reading →

Oblivion (2013)

Before you continue to read this post, this will contain spoilers, for only one of the plots made me kind of upset at the extent of it. I still haven't actually seen Tron: Legacy, but just looking at both Tron: Legacy and Oblivion it can said director Joesph Kosinski has an affinity for special effects.... Continue Reading →
