Current Status of Sci-Fi on TV and on the Big Screen!

By SFJunkie | | Movies, TV

Last few years we weren’t exactly overloaded with sci-fi on tv! Most current “sci-fi” series only have sci-fi elements in them. Few exceptions of course with Doctor Who and Defiance, Falling Skies and perhaps Continuum. Fortunately these four tv shows are doing rather well so the next year we get new seasons for all three. Haven, some say it’s just supernatural, some say it does have sci-fi elements, in any case, it had a good run till now and although not (yet) renewed for season five, the fourth season is as steady as the other seasons. Warehouse 13 of course also has a strong relation to sci-fi but season five will …

A Christmas Update

By Kode | | Latest News, Website

A quick appeal before I get on with the post, with just over a month to go till our servers are due for renewal we have only raised 65% (we are currently about £500 short) of the amount being targeted, so if anyone can donate it will be greatfully received, you can donate here\r\n\r\nIt’s been a hard year personally as we have had a new arrival to the family, and while it is rewarding has meant my focus has shifted away from the site, fortunately ArieS and Akovia stepped up and kept things running as smoothly as possible, I am …

Custom Made Doctor Who Lightbox Poster

By Kode | | Tutorials, TV

After seeing some awesome looking DIY lightbox posters over on avsforum I decided to make something similar, the information on avsforum is mostly from people from the US so hopefully this will help some people in the UK on where to source materials.\r\n\r\nI didn’t go for a full poster size one as that would have required 3 x 5M LED strips and was bigger than I wanted to make it, so instead I based my size around using a single strip and ended up deciding on making my image 1100mm x 230mm.\r\n\r\n \r\n The Doctor Who Image \r\n\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nWe are both fans of …

Movie Review: The Man with the Iron Fists

By mizaki | | Movies, Reviews

After seeing the trailer most people are going to know if they’ll enjoy this blacksploitation-cum-Asain martial arts inspired flick or not. Written by Eli Roth (best known for Hostel) and RZA who also directs and stars (?). This is RZA’s directorial and writing début. Coming with a “Presented by Quentin Tarantino” should be no surprise (also a producer) with the style involved. Is the style coming watered down from recent homages (Kill Bill etc.) rather from the source material and missing something for that? That material being kung fu action, Japanese mega gore and aforementioned blacksploitation.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe plot revolves/spirals around a cache of gold to …
