Terence Jackson shares his impressions of the ComicCon held in Manchester, UK, as well as Donald Manning’s photos of cosplayers who attended.
A Sci Fi scavenger hunt!
Tarzan, ERB’s most popular character, has gotten the film treatment since 1918; a handful of portrayals have stood out as true to the character. Will Skarsgard’s live up to the legacy?
Mr. Jackson apparently doesn’t know we’re not supposed to share our guilty pleasures!
Has anyone ever challenged the notion that film viewers are fundamentally happy to be served the same old stuff time and time again?
I recently got to thinking about all the little posts that people put on Facebook and what others reply. Now, I have quite a few geeky friends, mostly from going to various cons over the last couple of years, and they will use memes to comment on each other’s posts. According to Wikipedia.org an Internet […]
Entropy happens whether we want it to or not. Why are we so fascinated with helping it along?
Forget about all the things we were promised to have in 2015 by Back to the Future. 2015 seems to be our year for the movies, us geeks and nerds, that is. I do hope that no one is insulted by my use of the terms geek and nerd. Those are badges that I wear […]
There are no super heroes in real life – that’s why we go to the movies!
Robocop 2014: better than the original? Or worse?
“Greetings! Welcome to SciFi4Me.com – where we talk science fiction, not wrestling. “ I ask you how can one not love a sci-fi based website that has that as the first thing you see on their homepage? It certainly got my attention. I know I overuse the term “geek” or “geeky” sometimes, but I’m proud […]
News? We don’t need no stinkin news. We want badges!
Conan, from Weird Tales to remakes – with a dash or two of Frazetta thrown in for verisimilitude.

Steve discusses both super and non-super flying heroes – Commando Cody, Captain Marvel and Superman. Who didn’t want a rocket pack when they were growing up? Towels worn as capes just don’t seem to be able to get the job done!
What do Captain America, Buck Rogers, Batman, Flash Gordon, the Green Hornet and Gene Autrey have in common? They’ve all appeared in serials!
This past year has shown us quite a lot in the world of film. Audiences are beginning to finally understand that pricey CGI-driven action clustercusses aren’t exactly worthwhile entertainment. As always, Hollywood is slow to really grasp that—but they’re getting there. A new wave of (sort of) trilogies based on popular YA sci-fi/fantasy books have […]
London Expo October, 2013
Le but de Besson n’est pas de faire une oeuvre de science fiction mais un film de cinéma. A vouloir être grand public, il finit par vouloir plaire aussi bien à ceux qui aiment le genre qu’à ceux qui n’en sont pas des amateurs réguliers.
Over four decades Pat Mills has been a major force in keeping the British comics industry alive. I caught up with him to chat about the reappearance of one of his most enduringly popular characters, the Celtic barbarian, Sláine.
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.
The Conjuring may be the single most frightening movie I’ve ever seen. It’s the perfect balance between Classicism and Modernism.
Directed by Francis Ford Coppola Starring: Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning Released by American Zoetrope Many modern Horror aficionados lament the current state of the Genre: doomed to a nostalgic half-life, a perpetual twilight of re-watching old favorites from less jaded times, when ‘movies were still good’. It is our mission to unearth buried […]
Rumor has it that Shane Black is writing a script for a Doc Savage movie that may come out in 2015. It has a good chance of introducing the greatest of pulp action heroes to a new generation of fans who, whether they know it or not, have already seen Doc Savage at work in […]
Muchos han sido los post preferidos de mayo. Empecemos con los libros Libros Jack Dowden en su serie “Characters” (personajes) analiza a Kvothe, personaje principal de los libros “The Name of the Wind” y “The wise man’s fear” de Patrick Rothfuss y a Clare del animé Claymore. En este último artículo debo advertir a los […]
Como dije en el otro post, seguimos produciendo. He aquí de las novedades que me han comunicado de los meses de abril y mayo LIBROS “De monstruos y trincheras” de Ramón Merino Collado. (Espiral Ciencia Ficción, nº 52), autor que ha sido galardonado con varios premios literarios y tiene publicada la antología El Teatro de […]
Imagine the teaser trailer. Peeks at the iconic costume, a villain’s growled one-liner, the title looming suddenly out of the darkness with THIS CHRISTMAS or SUMMER 2014 beneath it. Imagine the interviews in Entertainment Weekly: the costume design chief noting how they “went with the more textured fabric, to get that realism in there,” the […]
Without belaboring the concept, let’s do it. 1. Star Wars. The force is magic, as are most other elements. Just because something has robots, spaceships, ray guns doesn’t make it science fiction. 2. Inception. Entering different levels of dreams to change minds as in this interesting but speculative movie isn’t based on realistic science. 3. […]
We live in a cinematic age of remakes, reboots and re-imaginings. Even new movies like The Hobbit feel like pictures that have gone before. This is hardly a new experience. Long before he became President Snow in The Hunger Games, Donald Sutherland starred in one of the best remakes of them all, the 1978 version […]
2013 sees the twentieth anniversary of Jurassic Park. To celebrate, a 3D version will be released in the USA in April: http://www.jurassicpark.com/index_splash.html. Dinosaurs are hotter than ever before and that’s good news. Their snapping jaws and tail-smashing antics on the big screen will help new palaeontology ideas to filter down to the general public. Before […]
