Star Trek: Discovery episode 1 review - The Vulcan Hello

9 hours ago

James Hunt Sep 25, 2017

Exciting! Star Trek: Discovery gets off to an enjoyable, satisfying start. Here's our spoilery review and geeky spots from episode 1...

With almost no advance press for Star Trek: Discovery's airing and a whole heap of suspicious-looking production reshuffles and slippages, you could be forgiven for feeling trepidation about whether it was going to be any good or not. The happy news is that the opening episode, The Vulcan Hello, is exactly what it needed to be: a decent episode of Star Trek.

Indeed, it's comfortably the best opening episode since Tng's Encounter At Farpoint. Surprisingly lean on characters, but dense with plot, the story sees Michael Burnham, aka Number One, encountering a strange artifact in space leading her, her captain and her crew into a tense stand-off with more Klingons »

3.9 The ABCs Of Beth

“Overstuffed” is not typically a positive adjective to attach to something. However, Rick And Morty is a series with episodes (especially this season) that feel overstuffed, but, against all odds, make sense and are possible to follow.

The ABCs Of Beth continues that overstuffed feeling, but, sadly, loses the plot a little in the process. It’s unfortunate because this series has been so good about gradually fleshing out all its characters beyond Rick and Morty and this was Beth’s time to shine. Up until this season, we were mostly familiar with her in relation to Jerry, which meant most of her screentime was devoted to tedious screaming arguments. »

Terminator 6 will ignore Terminator: Genisys

20 hours ago

Simon Brew Sep 25, 2017

Arnold Schwarzenegger gives an update on Terminator 6 - and confirms that Terminator: Genisys' story is being ignored.

In spite of the fact that James Cameron initially praised 2015’s Terminator: Genisys in the initial promotion for the film – “if you like the Terminator films, you’re gonna love this movie!” – you don’t need us to tell you that the film, ultimately, stank. It did okay business at the box office, but the sheer quality of it left plans for a new trilogy in tatters.

So much so that Cameron himself has been brought back for Terminator 6, the third Terminator film in a row that’s set to kickstart a new trilogy of movies.

Cameron is working on the story and producing the movie, with Deadpool’s Tim Miller set to direct. And it’s already set to bring back Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. »

Flash Gordon: Matthew Vaughn on why the movie has stalled

Matthew Vaughn explains how Guardians Of The Galaxy put a spanner in the works of the Flash Gordon reboot...

Plans for a reboot of Flash Gordon on the big screen have hit problems in recent times. The project most recently has landed at the door of Kingsman director Matthew Vaughn, and it’s still on his slate of things to do. However, in a new interview with Collider, he’s explained the reason why the project has stalled.

“We’ve been working on it”, he admitted first and foremost. “For me, the only problem with Flash Gordon is Guardians [Of The Galaxy] kind of stole what I would have liked to have done with it. You’ve got Star Wars, you’ve got Guardians, so you’ve got to have your own space opera, but you have to find something that can survive among these two very, very great franchises »

Simon Brew Sep 25, 2017

The first trailer for The Maze Runner 3 has landed…

It’s been a bit of a saga to get this far, this one. If all had gone to plan the final part of the Maze Runner trilogy, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, wouldn’t just have been released, but it would have been on DVD by now. Yet a horrific injury to lead actor Dylan O’Brien during filming of the movie put it back by well over a year.

O’Brien did eventually return to the production, and the film is finally complete, ahead of its release early next year. What’s more, the first trailer has landed, along with an official synopsis.

Here’s the trailer for the movie…

And here’s the synopsis…

In the epic finale to the Maze Runner saga, Thomas leads his group of escaped Gladers on their final and most dangerous mission yet. »

The latest James Bond 25 rumour suggest that Daniel Craig has a favoured director for the new movie...

The latest rumour to surround the forthcoming 25th James Bond movie surrounds the choice of director for the production. It’s long been known that incumbent Bond director Sam Mendes wouldn’t be back for this one. And the shortlist instead was said to feature Denis Villeneuve, Yann Demange and David MacKenzie.

According to a new report though, Daniel Craig – now confirmed to return for one more Bond adventure, of course – is leaning towards Villeneuve as his personal choice of director for the next 007 film. Villeneuve is currently promoting his next feature, Blade Runner 2049, and also is deep in development on a new screen adaptation of Dune. Also, having made five films in six years, he’s talked about needed a little break from filmmaking.

However, the Bond job might change that. »

3.3 All Debts Paid

This is the third episode in a row that sees Claire and Jamie living lives apart, but it is the first that truly captures just how much life they will live and endure without one another.

It is Claire’s storyline that especially hammers home this point, as we see her life churn monotonously along for much longer than Jamie’s (at least thus far in the storytelling). Yes, there are points of happiness — Brianna, as well as Claire’s job as a surgeon — but, at least in this episode, her time away from Jamie is mostly characterised by her sad, frustrating relationship with Frank.
