The Walking Dead – Season 7 kicks off with some mighty blows…

By | Sci Fi Film News | No Comments

Wow. After watching the Walking Dead Season 7 premiere, there was definitely some shocks in that episode. Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan great casting and totally up to the task, you gotta love a madman just like Jack Nicholson in the 1989 Batman, the role was almost born for him. The big shock though is him killing one and offing another midway through, and then getting Rick to crumble especially in front of his friends.

The wife was not happy at all with this episode and now doesn’t want to continue, I am sure she will, but it has divided a lot of people about the show, killing off such a big character…  only time will tell whether or not Season 7 goes on to be better than previous seasons or loses a good portion of it’s fan base.

Luke Cage – Meh!

By | Sci Fi Film News | No Comments

Luke Cage started off quite well, but there was a lot of filler episodes in the series. We needed a lot more action to be kicking off, a guy that is bullet proof and seemingly ridiculously strong, should be taking out all sorts of nasties, and a lot of the time I felt like he was running away. Nowhere near reaching the heights of Daredevil, (which I watched non stop until it was finished), there wasn’t even an amazing scene where you thought that was incredible, even when he broke into the supposed gangsters stronghold, it was still a bit boring and more “Meh!” I would love to have given this a better score, but it just didn’t live up to the hype. I am hoping that season 2 goes a long way to upping the game.

Independence Day: Resurgence

By | Sci Fi Film News | No Comments

Resurgence makes an ass of itself.

Independence Day: Resurgence ends up being a parody of the original, the effects are great and there are some good action sequences in this film, but it is badly let down by the hammy acting, too many coincidence situations and the rather drawn out same actors with the here we go again scenario.

If we had a completely new set of actors and a new director on this film it would of been so much better. Roland Emmerich has had his day (in the nineties) and his style of big action disaster movie just does not work in today’s very savvy tech world. The characters within all manage to survive yet again, With David’s father been the most ridiculous scenario. There also seems to be some dodgy editing and again the rousing over the top american speeches with the over the top self sacrifice from the original president (Bill Pullman) who as the film goes on starts as a broken man, then drops his walking cane and miraculously walks perfect and then finds a flight suit that fits him and has a shave to go and have a face off with the alien queen.

As for Liam Hemsworth – he is all over the place, on the moon saving the base, in Africa rescuing Jeff Goldblum’s character David, in the alien ship – swimming in the alien’s “cornfields”, stealing ships and pissing on the alien flight deck and then in the desert shooting at the queen in the final sequences, OFMG How much can one man do!!! Plus an amazing amount of naff one liners and the craziness of Brent Spiner. It all goes to make a hotch potch of random ideas added to the original formula and a pay check for a lot of these now defunct actors.

You have to take this film not too seriously and consider it as: ridiculous fun with over-the-top action sequences and scenarios, and then you’ll love it.

Captain America: Civil War

By | Sci Fi Film News | No Comments

Civil War in the cinema on the big screen was fantastic. It lived up to the hype and easily scores a 9 out of 10 for me.

Great film, plenty of action, the face off in the airport was great, and Spiderman’s inclusion all helped make it a great film. The only problem I have is this unbearable sense of loyalty from Cap to Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier. When it all goes off and Bucky is hunted, okay save him as your friend but when it turns out he did all these things especially to Tony’s parents, you would just go, sorry pal that’s a step too far…but other than that, a great film just what the Marvel fans wanted…

Civil War looks fantastic!!!

By | Sci Fi Film News | No Comments

This is looking really good. Definitely in the Iron Man Camp. Go Team Tony! I hope that Rhodey (as War machine) isn’t dead in this trailer. Black Panther looks cool, and as of yet undecided on what team he is on – although he is kicking The Winter Soldier in the head!!!

Terminator Genisys…What a mess!!!

By | Sci Fi Film News | No Comments

Where do I start, what a mess this film is. The only redeeming factor is Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones), even she can’t save what a mess this film is. Arnie is way too old to be doing this, I do like the explaination of why he does look so old, however the timeline is completely messed up they try desperately to cover this up with some arbitary techno babble half way through the film. John Connor gets turned into a T3000 and turns baddie which just does not work, and Kyle Reese remembers things from his childhood which he never had because the timeline changed – ridiculous. The effects are okay and action sequences as what we would expect from a Terminator film, but with the mess that it is, I’m only giving it a 5 out of 10. Could’ve been so much better – Shame!

Star Wars: Boba Fett Movie

By | Sci Fi Film News | No Comments

News of a spin off movie is in the works, for a Boba Fett Storyline with Josh Trank at the helm. I am hoping this will become true – after all Boba Fett is the Star Wars Fan’s favourite villian. Ever since Empire Strikes Back there has always been a bit of depth to this character, taking on jobs for big bounty, there is a multitude of storylines to cover before he gets called into the Empire’s call for Luke & Co…
