Path Of The Eclipse:  A Bali Trip by: Pauline Morgan

No, this is not a review of another Chelsea Quinn Yarbro novel, this is a personal adventure to Indonesia in order to be present on the day of the recent Total Eclipse of the sun. Before anything, I must say that the whole expedition was brilliantly organised by David Phillips and his colleagues at Intrepid, […]

This is ‘Star Wars Galaxy: The Original Topps Trading Card Series’, an anthology of collected artwork from the trading card sets of the same name, printed […]

Doctor Strange: first trailer (teach me).

Here’s the first trailer for the Marvel film Doctor Strange. If ever there was a property from the comic-books that wouldn’t translate to the big screen, it’s Doctor Strange . . . an exercise in psychedelic hippy drippy drug-fuelled ramblings when it came to the printed page. Of course, we %%$%^ loved it. But will […]

Suicide Squad: they’re bad guys, it’s what they do (new trailer).

From director David Ayer comes Suicide Squad, starring Oscar nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “The Pursuit of Happyness”), Oscar winner Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club”), Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street,” “Focus”), Joel Kinnaman (“Run All Night,” “The Killing”) and Oscar nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”).

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (film review by Frank Ochieng)

One would think that the ultimate showdown between two of the most iconic super-heroes would make for some downright compelling action-oriented exploits against a landscape of angst and destruction. Plus, it certainly did not hurt that exhilarating filmmaker Zack Snyder (‘300’) was at the helm in bringing together the colorfully and concocted confrontation between The […]

Set Phasers To Stun: 50 Years Of Star Trek by Marcus Berkmann   (book review)

In many respects, Marcus Berkmann’s book, ‘Set Phasers To Stun: 50 Years Of Star Trek’, is a candid look at ‘Star Trek’s half-century and he admits that it can also be difficult to say anything new, even from a British perspective, on the subject. However, along the way, he also quotes from various Trek books […]

Doctor Who: Remembrance Of The Daleks Special Edition by Ben Aaronovitch   (DVD review)

It was nearly the 25th anniversary of ‘Doctor Who’ and it returns to the roots of the first story in 1963, about a week after the first regeneration, […]
