A research base orbits Pluto. There has been no communication with Earth for three months, far longer than normal. A crew member is hallucinating and time is not as linear as it first appeared to be. Rather than ambitious, Alistair McDowall’s X is a misunderstanding of theatre’s capabilities. Although some Beckett exists—the characters’ defining action […]

To celebrate the penultimate film in the Divergent Series, eOne Films has put together an awesome prize pack to give away to one of our readers. Allegiant, Part 1– starring Shailene Woodley and every man who’s every played her love interest (Theo James! Miles Teller! Ansel Elgort!)- is in theatres now but you have until […]

Brutal, frustrating, challenging, heart-breaking and joyous are just some of the adjectives that best fit the follow-up to the acclaimed tactical turn-based sci-fi strategy game, XCOM Enemy Unknown – a game which I actually count as the best game of 2012 (Sorry Mass Effect 3). On the one hand, rarely have I uttered the phrase […]

For the past three years, I’ve been ranking every film I see- just the new releases, from January 1st to December 31st. The rankings are subjective, based entirely on how much I enjoyed and/or connected with or appreciated the film rather than on some sort of objective artistic criteria. Basically, this is a list of […]

It’s been almost a month since Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theatres and the money just keeps rolling in. The film made a billion dollars in its first 12 days and is set to overtake Titanic to become the second-highest grossing film of all time. More importantly, though, it’s actually a good movie! Well, […]

It is my humble opinion that, when it comes to a cultural landmark movie like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, even opinions and critical consensus constitute a spoiler. For that reason, I’ll throw up a great, big SPOILER WARNING right here, even though I am going to make a concerted effort not to ACTUALLY spoil […]

Recently, NASA published a flashy report outlining steps for sending humans to Mars within the next few decades – calling such a mission “within our reach.” Given NASA’s efforts to put a man or woman on the Red Planet, the idea that humans might one day colonize Mars is not as far-fetched as it sounds.

To celebrate the home entertainment release of the sci-fi sitcom classic My Favorite Martian, we have two Complete Series DVD Box Sets to give away to lucky readers. When My Favorite Martian premiered on CBS in 1963, TV was something you were home to see or never saw. There was no recording, no pausing, no rewinding, no […]

It’s time, once again, for the On DVD series featuring new releases from Paramount Home Distribution and more!.  TV Tut Spike TV’s three-part miniseries starring the great Ben Kingsley is epic and pulpy and mildly historically useful, so it’s pretty much everything you ever wanted from something called “Tut”. Special features on the DVD include a look […]

There’s always a lot of worry when it comes to revisiting a franchise. After a lot of years have gone by and the demand for more has died out, there’s the question as to why the studio would even bother. In previous months, the sequel Mad Max: Fury Road definitely proved that you can go […]

Harkening back to sci fi classics such as Forbidden Planet, the majority of Ex Machina is constituted of philosophical discussion and games of verbal chess. These discussions broach many thoughts on the nature of humanity, god/creation and the illusion of self in the digital era. Caleb (Domhnall Gleeson) is an employee at Bluebook who wins […]

It’s time, once again, for the On DVD series featuring new releases from Paramount and Elevation Pictures. The Imitation Game (Elevation Pictures, March 31) The re-watch value on this Oscar-winning WWII thriller is high thanks to superb performances from the entire cast (led by Benedict Cumberbatch with a ton of key supporting turns, including Keira Knightley and […]

Before we announce the winners of the 2014 My Theatre Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series. Once again, Dark Matter. We loved Circlesnake’s funny, weird, devastating parable so much that over the course of this series we’re interviewing every single member of its cast (in all fairness, there were only four of them) […]

I started this last year, keeping a list of every movie I see all year (just the new releases) in order to form a definitive set of personal rankings come the following January. My 2014 list started on February 9th when I saw That Awkward Moment starring Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B Jordan […]

You already know the biggest problem with the newest installment of the Hunger Games, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1. It’s right there in that ridiculously long title. They took the last movie of the Hunger Games saga, and split it in half. This means that the finished film is half the final story, half […]

There are moments of Interstellar that are outstanding. It is visually stunning. It has a breathtaking vision of space, grounded by actual astrophysics (theoretically, sort of), which gets writ large across a gritty film landscape that manages to evoke classic science fiction movies while also featuring stunning graphics. And the simplified plot – man goes […]
