Hello everyone Seeing all the hurricane conditions around the world, I defy anyone to ignore the situation and be all goodness and light. We might have escapist tendencies but we also live within the reality of our world as well. I do often wonder what happens to any of you who have collections in these […]

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind: what was it about: an examination by GF Willmetts.

The United Nations Investigation Unit into Unidentified Flying Objects Phenomenon justified their cost with the discovery of the aircraft from the lost Flight 19 unit from 1945 in 1977. All the aircraft were found in the Sonoran Desert as good as new and haven’t aged in 33 years. A nearby native received an unexpected sunburn […]

Limbo City 4: Life In The Dead Lane  : a story by: GF Willmetts

Rasda Kepi looked up at the towers of Limbo City. Generally, he was here only for a few minutes with the mourners before returning to Earth. Everyone else had gone and he was still here. His main thought was whether anything had happened to his body like those two other angels. All he could do […]

Alien: Hissing Xenomorph & Illustrated Book [With Sound] (model and book review).

Within the three inch high green box, you get a wrapped xenomorph, 1 small 48 page mini-book and a single sheet telling you how to activate the sound. Very simply, if you press the lever down on its back, the first action is to extend his tongue and then 8 seconds of sound. I’m not […]

Flatliners (a film review by Frank Ochieng)

There is always a risk involved when revisiting cinema from the past and dusting it off in favor of an ambitious remake for the consideration of today’s adventurous movie-going audience. Hollywood has done this tactic for decades now so this is nothing new to contemplate as food for thought. It is one thing to try […]

Final Recall (2017)     (film review)

It might be called ‘Final Recall’ but don’t assume it has anything to do with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 movie ‘Total Recall’ or even the 2012 remake. That would be a mistake as it is a completely different story. It might be why the film is also known as ‘The Recall’ to avoid any confusion with […]

It (film review by Frank Ochieng)

Something certainly rings true in the horror thriller ‘It’ that capitalises on that common known fear that clowns are creepy annoyances to those that have an intense phobia towards them. In the case of ‘It’s dastardly powder-faced joyboy or shall we say corrosive killjoy Pennywise the Dancing Clown, he definitely takes the cake in terms of […]

Alien: Covenant (2017)   (Blu-ray film review)

In many respects, it looks like director Ridley Scott has gone back to his original idea of a haunted house in space with ‘Alien: Covenant’. There’s even a hint of ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ where the Discovery was originally going to have extended solar panels, making it look more like a dragonfly but with the […]

Phillip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams Episode 2: Impossible Planet (TV episode review).

I’ve seen the future and it looks like we’ve added a filter. Travel to the endless wonders of the universe, has been reduced to seedy starships that offer the ultimate experience, if you don’t mind that it’s faked. Brian Norton (Jack Reynor) works the ship and spiels the spiel to the gawping public. He yearns […]
