Review – Anime by Colin Odell & Michelle Le Blanc

Anime is not intended as a definitive guide, but as wide ranging introduction to the field. Even so, seasoned anime watchers will find the book valuable for the opinions expressed

A Science Fiction Primer

Media SF - in all of its varieties - is firmly and uncontestably rooted in the literature (whether it acknowledges its sources or not). The problem for the audience of media fare is that the mainstream definition of "sci fi" is overly broad, encompassing bad examples along with the good and offering no inherent means for distinguishing one from the other .

Ben Affleck, Really?

Not everyone is delighted about the news that Ben Affleck is the new Batman for the Man of Steel sequel

SyFy. Not a Mispelling, Just an Awful Channel.

There are a lot of reasons for a Science Fiction fan to dislike the channel. One would be that several nights of the week, they play professional wrestling in prime time. Even the worst space operas are more realistic.

Poor Execution Leads Elysium to its Death

One of my first annoyances was that the entire film seemed like Mass Effect fan fiction. From Elysium and the robots, to the soldier's exoskeletons and even the font-type used on the space station, it seemed like a Bioware rip-off.

Bad Robots

Robots are supposed to follow three laws that will maintain their loyalty to humanity. But as we all know, even a bunch of nuts and bolts can go bad. So let’s take a look at some of the bad robots we’ve grown to love.

Bestselling mystery / thriller authors Keigo Higashino and Jiro Asada, with five other popular genre writers and mangaka, have been embroiled for the last three years in a complicated series of lawsuits against "jisui" scanning companies. These jisui companies operate custom digitalization services.

It’s All My Fault – An Apology

Another summer of cinematic wilderness is drawing to a close and I owe you all a big apology. Why? Because I am responsible for the terrible state of mainstream American cinema today.

True Blood Season 6 Finale. Wow. Just wow.

I felt a little bit miffed at first that there were only 10 episodes in this season, especially as it has completely gone off on its own course now. (Watch out for full frontal nudity.)

Pacific Rim Novelization by Alex Irvine

The novelization of Pacific Rim by Alex Irvine is more than just a book based on a movie. This is a book that stands alone by allowing fans to appreciate the literary value not always expressed through film.

Review: Oblivion

I won’t say it’s the best SF film I’ve seen lately—it's certainly one of the best-looking, however; but it’s deserving of a second look if you’ve been hoping for a moderately good science fiction film to watch this summer.

Discovering Science Friction: Snark Week 2013

Megalodon: The Monster Shark Lives could easily have been made into a Syfy Channel movie (if they’d used lower resolution cameras, thrown in a former 1980s TV star and some cornball music).
