Nightfall

Pardon this mini-post-slash-rant, but enough is enough! When the hell are we going to get a decent big screen Nightfall? I refer of course to the Isaac Asimov classic, long version with Robert Silverberg. Wiki here. As much rubbish as makes it to the big screen yet there have been, so far as I can […]

Interstellar is Stellar

Interstellar is easily one of the most exciting and engrossing films of the year. For me, I think this is largely due to the immersive score of Hans Zimmer, which, to my ears at least, is at times heavily influenced by the Symphony #7 of Jean Sibelius (the finest of Symphonies ever written IMO).

I Origins

I recently read Biocentrism, by Dr. Robert Lanza with Bob Berman, but this is not a book review – it is a film review. So why do I start off mentioning this book?

Previously, they […]

Beyond The Black Rainbow is beyond trippy!

Whenever I would scroll thru my list my reaction to the description given on Netflix would be something like “Why did I put this movie on my list? Oh yeah, looked like a nice blend of paranormal, psychological thriller with […]

Sountrack Competition Round 2

The results of the first competition are in: In the biggest smackdown of the race to be the best soundtrack ever, The Matrix decimated Transformers, taking 88% of the vote. Made scrap metal out of the big robots! In the battle of the men-with-Daddy-issues (well, not really, but play along), The Tree of Life beat […]
