Review: Alien Covenant

by Dave Foyon 17/05/2017
And so the struggle begins! How do I remain objective when I’m reviewing a movie from my favourite film franchise? How do I stop myself from devolving into total ‘fan-boy’ territory – either gushing praise over or screaming bile about, a movie that is a direct prequel to a film (the 1979 original) that I […]

Alien Covenant trailer reaction (better late than never!)

by Dave Foyon 13/01/2017
Alien Covenant trailer reaction (better late than never!) This is going to be a relatively similar to an article that I wrote just over a year ago, sorry! But that’s what happens when you’re an Alien megafan,and obsess over every tiny piece of news/footage that’s released. At that time, the buzz around the Alien franchise had been peaked […]

Put Down The Paintbrush Hollywood: Diversity Matters

by TinkerTonkson 21/11/2015
Earlier this week, the forthcoming Gods of Egypt movie released it’s character posters featuring a highly controversial cast. The film, as you may imagine, is set in Egypt and focuses on two warring Egyptian Gods, yet neither of them, as per the casting choice, is even the slightest bit remotely reminiscent of Egyptian. While I […]

The Martian

by Callum Tyndallon 05/10/2015
So, as it turns out, all you need to survive Mars is potatoes and duct tape. This is the first of many things that came out of The Martian. Perhaps more important than that survival tip though, is that this is, well and truly, a great film. On all fronts, Ridley Scott has brought together a […]

LFCC 2015: The Aliens Panel Highlights

by Callum Tyndallon 20/07/2015
So this year’s LFCC came to a close yesterday. Among the many, many things that occurred, one of the highlights was the Aliens panel in which stars Bill Paxton (Private William Hudson), Carrie Henn (Newt) and Sigourney Weaver (Ripley. Obviously. Oh my god I sat right in front of Ripley.) Having wandered into finding it […]

Eddard Stark… in Space! Sean Bean joins the cast of The Martian.

by SeanPWallaceon 21/10/2014
The Martian by Andy Weir is probably one of the big publishing hits of 2014. A story about a man trapped alone on a Mars colony long after the idea of such a thing has become quite dull, and the trials he faces in surviving until a rescue mission from Earth can arrive, it is critically-acclaimed […]

Halo: The Master Chief Collection new trailer is voiced by the Arbiter

by Nick Hancheton 07/07/2014
A new trailer has been shown from RTX 2014, voiced by none other than the Arbiter, Master Chief’s covenant ‘friend’. The trailer, entitled ‘Terminal’, raises questions over the interesting dynamic and complicated relationship between Petty Officer John-117 and the disgraced Alien, and thus makes the wait just that bit more agonising. Halo: The Master Chief […]

In Space No-one Can Hear You Nom

by James Buckinghamon 15/04/2014
A friend of mine is one lucky sonova… well… he’s a lucky guy. For one, he works for The Creative Assembly (the guys behind the epic Total War series)… a job which I’m immensely jealous of. Secondly, he got to munch on something truly epic today that got sent to the CA offices; An Alien: […]

Top 5 Disturbing 80s Kids Films

by Hani Fearonon 30/07/2013
The 80s. The golden age of music, gaming and fabulously awful cinematic cheese. The birth of electropop, Mario and Zelda and some seriously spectacular movie gold. From Blade Runner to Back to the Future, The Terminator to Top Gun and of course the all time classic that was Ghostbusters, the 1980s was a huge decade […]
