Tom Cruise Edge of Tomorrow - New Poster Announced





The Edge of Tomorrow looks like a kickass film (in a Groundhog Day sort of way) with Tom Cruise once again exploring the Sci-Fi potential of 21st Century Cinema. Think Oblivion and you'll see his strength as a 50 year old actor is to promote a Universal view of space and time.

Science Fiction Movies

Discovering the best Science Ficiton Moveies offers the viewer a unique world or indeed Universe where almost everything is possible. As we get used to technological advances the Sicence Fiction world offers something both new and familiar, we can associate through Science Fiction movies and films as well as being amazed at how far things have developed.

Common in mainstream film at present is the idea of cloning through the exploration of the human genome and DNA.

So mush more remians of how far Science Fiction can encompass the differing aspects of humanity as we creep towards the 22nd Century.

The Hurt Locker

Moving away from the distracting controversy surrounding this film and whether it is considered to be propagandist or pro-US, the essence of this review will focus on the addiction to war as a drug...

Baraka Movie


There is a lot to be said for silence....

Baraka knows this. This movie for me was a real visual discovery and a pleasure to watch, of course these kinds of films usually are. They sit and wait to be discovered like a long lost forgotten Aladdin's lamp, collecting dust and forgotten for all time.

What makes Baraka so poignant is its visual power, no words no script no plot - this is a film that works on a minimal documentary structure, or more accurately a collective view of the world within a montage framework. The cinematography is pure magic, and the idea that this film breaks the 4th Dimension between Audience and Film is truly mesmerising. When we see people stare at us from the other side of the screen/world how do we feel? What do we look at within ourselves?

Tron Legacy - the lacking sequel DVD

Tron: Legacy / Tron: The Original Classic (Five-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy)

Tron Legacy - why?

I am becoming concerned with Hollywood remakes - the use of CGI and an attraction back to the legends of the past make me wonder if Hollywood is purely re-raking the past for profit or if this style of film-making serves an insipid vision of new ideas.

Now the original Tron arrived at a time when it was necessary to examine the relationship between new game media, in the format of games, and the players. This was not World-of-Warcraft time of course but it was based on the old legacy of Pin-Ball!

Dark Tower and the rumours continue.... who has news?

Been reading about this.... could be amazing this awesome 7 book series will be a film?

I have always been a fan of Stephen King - his work is mainstream. His work always strikes a chord into the subconcious, I remember reading Cujo all the way through in one sitting, it was Impossible to put down. Moving on though, his work never really adapts so well to TV or Cinema - save The Shining (Jack Nicholson, Shelly Duvall with Stanley Kubrick directing)

Blade Runner

Well to look deeper at better films may well be an option Bladerunner. It is a very deep film with stunning cinematography and a film-noir feel, one of the best Sci-Fi investigation films around
