Sci Fi

All things science-fiction. The good stuff, the bad stuff. The guilty pleasures and the highfalutin snobbery. We got your lasers. We got your spaceships. We got your sounds of plasma cannons slowly powering up. We got your genetically modified super-soldiers who were created by humans but then turned on their creators, pontificating the existential meaning of mortality as they battle the vampire overlord.
Jack Ryan is an empty power fantasy with a lot of fine filigree in the details, just like a Tom Clancy book.

It's still possible for a truly crazy movie to get made. It does something that I haven't experienced in a long while, which is actually make me want to see it again and again. The film's humor and color don't seem to lower the stakes. And the humor is fantastic.

A good movie by any measure, but holy cow, they really did just throw all of Luke Skywalker's amazing potential straight into the nearest Sarlacc/Rancor/detention-level garbage chute.

This cast must be getting blackmailed by Vladimir Putin. That's the only way they could go through with something this asinine.

Marvel breaks barriers and delivers something completely different while satisfying our usual cravings, but raises many questions for its future.

Someone stole the concept-art from Blade Runner and scooped up some talent from the now-defunct House of Cards, but dammit, they did a pretty decent job with it all.

Netflix’s Bright manages to take one of the most interesting premises for a fantasy story I’ve seen in years, and boils it down into a deeply average buddy cop piece.
