From Beyond (1986)

Dr. Edward Pretorius (Ted Sorel) and Dr. Crawford Tillinghast (Jeffrey Combs) are researching the effect that a resonator has on the pineal gland. They believe that stimulating the gland lets people see a reality beyond our own that is otherwise invisible to the naked eye. Crawford activates the resonator and begins to see strange creatures […]

Soldier (1998)

Todd 3465 (Kurt Russell) is the best of a group of genetically engineered soldiers, bred to kill from a very early age. He is a decorated war hero, with hundreds of kills to his name. Now…he is obsolete. A new group have soldiers have been created by the villainous Colonel Mekum (Jason Isaacs). The soldiers […]

Riddick (2013)

Dear oh dear. Before I start let me say I dig the first two movies. I actually like Chronicles of Riddick more than Pitch Black, probably one of the few that does. I was jazzed when David Twohy and Vin Diesel announced they were bringing Riddick back. They did mention that they were returning to […]

Frequency (2000)

John Sullivan (Jim Caviezel) is a New York cop. Ever since he was a kid growing up in Queens he wanted to be a cop. He wanted to make his father Frank Sullivan (Dennis Quaid) proud, who was a firemen killed in a warehouse fire in 1969. Now 1999 it’s coming up to the anniversary […]

Altered States (1980)

The mind is a powerful thing. Very powerful. When you step over that threshold of reality to dream, the longer you stay there the harder it is to differentiate the two. In the 1960’s Eddie Jessup (William Hurt) is pushing his mind to it’s limits. He has been experimenting with an isolation chamber/flotation tank, which […]

Fist of the North Star (1995)

Some films are so endearingly shit, that it’s hard to completely hate them. The live action version of Fist of the North Star falls into this niche category. Directed by Tony Randel (Hellraiser II), it’s a mish mash of good intentions and poor execution. I’m sure many geeks know the story, but just to refresh […]

Outland (1981)

Outland is a sci-fi in appearance, but it doesn’t play like a typical sci-fi and is all the better for it. Outland is more of a western in the vein of ‘High Noon’ than any sci-fi released around the same time. It was made in 1980 and released in 1981. Back when practical effects were […]

Battlefield Earth (2000)

I felt compelled to review this turd of a movie so that others may never make the mistake I did. Dear god what a car crash of a film this is. A vanity project for John Travolta, as the story it’s based on was written by the batshit crazy L. Ron Hubbard who is the […]

Guyver: Dark Hero (1994)

I really love this movie. This slots nicely into my guilty pleasure file, something you may see on TV at night, that you may not normally give a second glance to. That’s why I’m here, to put these movies on your radar and show you movies you may have missed. It begins with Sean Barker […]

Event Horizon (1997)

This film is fantastic. Let me just stress that right now. Paul WS Anderson has never, until this day, made a better movie. I don’t think it’s a fluke. The guy has some talent, but instead decides to waste it on the terrible Resident Evil films. Which is a shame, because here he shows a […]
