by Peter Ray Allisonon 18/07/2018
Sci Fi Weekender (SFW) is not your typical science-fiction event (a review of last year’s SFW in the City can be found here).  Less of a convention and more of a festival, for one weekend every year, thousands of sci-fi and fantasy fans descend on North Wales for a celebration of all things geek.  However, […]

With Beadle & Grimm’s Pandemonium Warehouse releasing the much anticipated Platinum Edition Dungeons & Dragons box, Waterdeep: Dragon Heist, in just a few months time, I spoke with one of the company’s founders, Matthew Lillard (actor, director, producer, entrepreneur, blue-haired-punk-god-that-one-time, D&D enthusiast) to learn more.

Warhammer Adventures is exactly that. […]

by joshkingofgeekson 20/04/2018
The 1980’s gave birth to so much amazing cinema. It’s filled with fantastic storytelling and imagination that would capture the hearts and creative juices of every geek, child and dreamer to ever retain their cinema stub. This era would also boost the genre of Science Fiction especially the Time Travelling side of it. Robert Zemekis […]

Mary Poppins Returns…

by Deepdarkredon 12/03/2018
In a world full of adaptations, remakes, sequels and revivals, I have to admit that the return of Mary Poppins is the one thing I am actually looking forward too. Last week’s Oscars saw the release of the first teaser trailer of the heavily anticipated (at least by me) return of the best nanny a […]
