Captain, we have a spaceship on screen!

22 07 2017

New Dark Matter, new Killjoys, new Dr Who. Yeah, not everything is the best show ever and not all of them are at the height of their quality. But there was a time when spaceships on TV happened only in reruns and it went for a good while. We accept every mediocre superhero movie but somehow sci fi needs to be perfect. Well, right now it ain’t. But it’s amazing.

And and while we’re at it, if you claim you miss sci-fi why don’t you go watch Valerian this weekend?

That is all. Thank your paying attention  to this summary.





I bloody told you Star Trek Beyond would be good

22 07 2016

Dear Trekkies. I fucking told you you so!

Good for all the reasons I said, because this director knows how to shoot action movies about characters. Now if you’d kindly stop being full of yourself and going “ohhh cars am stupid, we are the special elite snowflakes of sci fi how does this guy get to touch our stuff..”and go fuck yourself that’d be swell. Or you know, go watch and enjoy that movie you don’t deserve because the proletarian who made it wasn’t good enough for you.





Shin Godzilla

2 05 2016

As always after Hollywood fucks up a Godzilla movie Japan moves in to apologise to the big lizard (and you would too, after all he makes this THING look small) with a movie of their own. And while this trailer already includes just about as much actual Godzilla footage as the recent western release did ovet the whole movie they do seem to have taken some bad ideas on how much to focus on everything BUT the monster its all about.

Honestly I was hoping I could just go praise the silly shit out of it but like Godzilla 2000 this seems to be mostly needlessly dramatic and serious in an attempt to appease their giant rubber suit god. All those people talking while that music runs are absolutely funny though if you just imagine them all just saying “Godzilla” over and over because that’s actualy exactly how the dialogue in a lot of these things work.

Also what the fuck is up with his tail? I first thought it is a second monster he is fighting or something. Oh and appearantly he’s glowing. Maybe he will explode. It wouldn’t be the first time. Look its complicated. Godzilla has been around a long time and done a lot of weird shit.





Oh look they JJ Abramed Star Wars

28 11 2014

I know fans are going to jerk of to this because just like the new more boring cartoon it gives them their nostalgia fix but seriously did Star Wars need annoyingly loud shock music? And while these scenes do not look as terrible as his Star Trek work did, they still scream Abrams to me, everything seems to close to the camera, the lighting is too hard-edged. Of all the Star Wars I have seen in the last few years and that’s been quite a lot if you include game teasers this seems the least promising.





PAN Teaser – So its Peter Pan’s turn again

28 11 2014

Works for me, I always loved Neverland in a way. And it’s just about perfect for the sort of happy glowie cgi wonders you can fill places with these days. Like Malificent’s bog except a floating island and thus way more awesome. Also ..making it a floating island. Awesome.

I’m feeling like these types of movies are the anti Harry Potter, keeping magic as wondrous instead of the banal chore it is there. And to bash on another much loved franchise, we do deserve a great Neverland after that dread hopeless generic forest “Once upon a time” tried to sell.





“Iron Sky 2” They’re doing this AGAIN?

Some of the investors in the first one might have been scammed which should make me hate them but damn I want to see the dinosaur invasion!
