For reasons I won’t go into I got to see the Canadian release of this and, while I don’t think dividing it into 2 instead of three did it any favours, the whole thing has really weird focus in as much as the actual ‘war’ seems weirdly lost. I don’t really want to spoil anything but I was really hopeful after seeing Read more

“It certainly doesn’t look like the forest moon of Endor, which is where you may assume scraps of a fully armed and in-the-middle-of-exploding battlesations to imminently land after the Rebels struck the final blow in Return of the Jedi.” Read more

You aren’t alone in that and most of the professional critics agree with you. I did think Force Awakens was very enjoyable at the time but I’d always be mentally picking holes in it after it had finished. With The Last Jedi I was genuinely pleasantly surprised that it felt like it was doing something different...and Read more

I think it’s more that they’ve eliminated all harmful bacteria a long, long time ago more than anything.

The only real problem I had with Alita was the complete and utter lack of an ending. So, yes, please do more.

While we’re doing decent books with much more famous adaptations someone should take another look at This Island Earth. There is lots of interesting stuff to work with in that book and it’s dramatically different from the film. It’s another one of those things with a title where the adaptation somehow manages to keep Read more

My impression of the first trailer and what I’d heard of the comics rather turned me off and made me think it all seemed rather mean-spirited and unpleasant but I’ve got to say I’m very glad I gave it a try as I really enjoyed it.

I love the fifth book but please, please, please either dramatically change or skip the sixth; It was ABYSMAL.

I was actually glad after my day off was over and I could go to work because of the air conditioning!

Maybe don’t mangle all the dialogue and cut off the jokes before they’ve even got going this time around.

It’s hardly a stupid nitpick though is it? Thor is his sodding name not his job title. If they were all called The God of Thunder then it’s a different kettle of fish.

I love the idea of Natalie Portman coming back and being the Goddess of Thunder but I’ll never get my head around the idea that she is called Thor. It’s like Falcon taking on the mantle of Captain America and changing his name to Steve! It just seems monumentally daft to me.

I prefer the ‘tail landing’ Roci though I always thought it wasn’t especially convincing it could go into an atmosphere at all, let alone take off and land. Still, at least they won’t have to deal with sideways sets! Read more

Well I suppose it’s the closest I’ll ever get to seeing Nemesis the Warlock in ‘live action’ and one property I NEVER expected to get the TV treatment. Read more

Oh god I hadn’t heard that. That Day of the Triffids series was awful , unfortunately. The only plus side is that there was already a pretty much perfect adaptation already. Read more

Why is that you wait ages for an adaptation of War of the Worlds and then multiple versions turn up at once. Even more incredibly they almost all inevitably suck to lesser or greater degree!

The only think stunning about this is than anyone thought it was a good idea. STOP REMAKING GOOD FILMS! TRY THE ONES THAT HAD POTENTIAL BUT WERE RUBBISH!!!

They should just do Imajica or Weaveworld though the first one in particular would cost all the money.
