Area 51 What a fantastic follow up to the opening double header for Season 2. I didn’t think they’d be able to match the standard set in the Roswell episodes but they did it and then some. This episode had it all; drama, thrills, emotion and a great new character in the CIA agent, Daniel […]Read more "Project Blue Book – Season 2: Episode 3 Review"
The Roswell Incident – Part 1 and 2 Hi everyone, Much of my time of late has been spent on things other than this website, so it’s nice to get an opportunity to write something new. I’m glad we’re not that far behind the US in seeing this back on television. The welcome return of […]Read more "Project Blue Book – Season 2, Episode 1 and 2 Review"
Hi everyone, I capped off a day out in the capital with a visit to the Prince Charles Cinema for a screening of this Roger Corman effort which I had some fond childhood memories of. I say childhood memories because I don’t think I had seen this film since I was about 10 years old. […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Battle Beyond the Stars (1980)"
Horsell Common I finally finished the audiobook version of this, read by David Tennant. I have to say that I was amazed at this book from start to finish. It has been a while since I have read any 19th Century literature and I was unprepared for just how action-packed this story is. Really, I […]Read more "Tonight’s Reading – The War of the Worlds"
It’s Halloween night and usually I watch a film. This year I decided to fire up the Xbox instead. Not often do I replay games once I’ve been through them once. The Mass Effect trilogy and Resident Evil 4 are the only ones I can think of. Something about this one made me want to go […]Read more "Game Replay – Alien: Isolation"
It’s been a while since we had any updates about casting but this popped up today and I thought it was worth a post. I held off on the additional Sardaukar cast announcements that were made but I’ll give those people a shout out at the end. So, the iMDB listing for next year’s Dune, […]Read more "Casting Dune – Mapes and Hawat confirmed + more"
It’s good to hear that Project Blue Book has been picked up for a second season. Looks like we’ll get to go deeper into a protracted arc for some of the characters. If this week’s episode was anything to go by, things will continue to pick up speed. Episode 7 – The Scoutmaster I was […]Read more "Project Blue Book – Season 1: Episode 7 Review"
OK, so this is different. One of my rare forays to the cinema; in fact the first time I’ve been since Infinity War. I had relatively low expectations. I knew that Shane Black, writer of the original Predator film (which would probably make it into my Top 30 films) was involved and that gave me […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – The Predator (spoiler-free)"
More and more names kept coming to mind as I researched this piece. Putting them in order was a real pain and I had to think about a number of different criteria on which I would rank them. This included the scope of what they did and the reasons behind their actions and sometimes by how […]Read more "The Top 50 Greatest Villains in Space!"
