Humanoids From The Deep (1996) (DVD review).

Humans genetically blended with salmon DNA are genetic monsters who escape the military and are mutated further by some biohazard material. They also have a taste […]

Star Wars: The Force Awakes (Blu-ray film review).

I must be one of the last to see ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakes’ and I can understand why a lot of people see so much of the original ‘Star Wars: A New Hope’ in it but I can also see strong plot elements of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and a touch of ‘Return Of […]
