Hi everyone, It’s been ages since we had any news on Dune so it’s been a real thrill to get so much new stuff over the course of a couple of days. It gives us our first look at the actors in role. Obviously, these are prepared shots as opposed to stills from the film […]Read more "Casting Dune – Vanity Fair First Look reaction"
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 think there’s maybe a couple more little bits that I need to change, and I had a […]Read more "Ardenna Crossing update – January 2020"

Some say it is a worthy ending; others that it is the worst type of fan service. Some […]Read more "My Top 10 bits of Star Wars Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker (spoilers galore!!)"

What lies at the heart of […]Read more "Tonight’s Viewing – Dune (1984)"
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"
What seemed like the stuff of fevered Twitter fantasy a while back now looks like something potentially real. Quentin Tarantino has an idea for an ‘R’ rated Star Trek film and it looks like it could actually happen. With the love that Discovery is now getting and the excitement generated by the trailer for the […]Read more "Tarantino’s Star Trek – A Wish List"
