Have Your Say: DEADPOOL Cross-overs...

Pretty Packaging: The FOOD WARS SECOND PLATE Premium Boxset Looks Yummie Too!

Have Your Say: Will We See EVANGELION 3.0 + 1.0 This Decade?

Have Your Say: What About Easter?

Ah... Easter. Depending on where you are in the world, it can mean so many different things. Some weird feast with bunnies and eggs, watching the pope on television, one-or-two extra days of leave, one of the few times the...

Have Your Say: The New York Background

Last weekend I checked out Vinegar Syndrome's Blu-ray release of Slava Tsukerman's 1982 film Liquid Sky, and was very much impressed by what I saw. Liquid Sky is an obscure cult-film that's often been described as "trippy low-budget science fiction",...

Have Your Say: What Should Alex Garland Adapt Next?

Yesterday I saw Alex Garland's new film Annihilation, and loved it. I wasn't the only one either, judging from Kurt Halfyard's review. Frankly, I would have dearly liked to have seen it in a cinema, but alas: Paramount and Netflix...
