GEEK OUT!!! STAR WARS : CAN THE LAST JEDI AVOID THE FLAWS OF THE FORCE AWAKENS?

Star Wars VII : The Force Awakens was a smash hit in 2015 BUT failed as a story. As a ‘soft reboot’, the movie served to superficially give the fans what they wanted but essentially retold the original Star Wars (1977) plot in an inferior way – adding in new characters but changing nothing significant in the key story beats.

GEEK OUT! THE EXPANSE LIVES UP TO ITS NAME!

The Expanse 001

Scifi TV geeks have been waiting for a long time for a series that matches the epic sweep of Babylon 5 or Battlestar Galactica. Thus, when it was announced that Syfy was adapting James SA Corey’s Expanse series, there was palpable excitement amongst geeks that perhaps the wait was over.

Beginning to feel that this will be the film of the year!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in Singapore on 17th December. 

GEEK OUT! JUPITER ASCENDING IS A PIECE OF CRAP THAT EVEN MICHAEL BAY WOULD BE ASHAMED OF

JupiterJones

Written and directed by Lana and Andy Wachowskis.
Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean & Eddie Redmayne.

Where do I begin? The fact that Jupiter Ascending had two previous release dates in 2014 before settling on February 2015 was already cause of concern. Add to that the dodgy trailer hinted of a ridiculously fantastical plot, lame dialogue and over the top epic sequences did not help comfort the unease.
