Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams episode 5 review: Real Life

Louisa Mellor Oct 16, 2017

Electric Dreams delivers a glossy Vr thriller in its latest episode, written by Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D. Moore

This review contains spoilers.

1.5 Real Life

If you’re a glassy-eyed wreck suffering from equal parts Ptsd and survivor guilt, don’t rely on your own subconscious to conjure you up a relaxing psychic holiday. You may as well book a world cruise through Boko Haram instead of Thomas Cook.

However unwise, that’s what traumatised cop Sarah (Anna Paquin) does in the opening segment of Real Life, the fifth Electric Dreams story, written by Ronald D. Moore and directed by Jeffrey Reiner. Still visibly shaken a year after fifteen of her colleagues were killed in a police massacre, Sarah agrees to take an experimental Vr trip out of her mind.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams – Real Life Review

Villordsutch reviews Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams: Real Life…

We’ve come to season one’s penultimate episode of Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, with this week’s slice of sci-fi being titled, “Real Life”. This new story being from the pen of Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, Outlander), was originally published way back in 1954 within the Science Fiction Magazine, “If“, it then going under the title of, “Exhibit Piece”.

We begin in Chicago of the future. Here we find police officers Sarah (Anna Paquin) and Mario (Jacob Vargas) eating, whilst discussing a previous case. It becomes apparent that Sarah is clearly still troubled greatly by this case, in which a number of her fellow officers were massacred around her. Both officers have an ongoing investigation running in search of the murderers, though as yet nothing is coming up.

Underworld TV series is in development

David Crow Sep 26, 2017

The Underworld franchise will live again in a new television series...

A good vampire story never truly ends. Like the eternal succubi themselves, a yarn about Nosferatu merely mutates and transforms, but it never stops. How else do you explain all those bloody Dracula movies? So it’s not really a surprise that Underworld will live again as a television series after enjoying a lengthy (and long-in-the-tooth) five-film franchise.

Indeed, Deadline broke the news that longtime Underworld patron Len Wiseman and his production company Sketch Films is moving forward with a previously rumored Underworld television series that’ll target a premium cable/streaming market. Wiseman gave a quote confirming as much.

“The series will be a pretty big departure from the films,” Wiseman said. “I don’t want to say it’s more adult, but it’s definitely less comic book in its tone and character.”

Benedict Cumberbatch Spills On Sherlock’s Love Life

While appearing at London’s Comic-Con this past weekend, Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch spilled on the detective’s love life – or lack thereof.

The Doctor Strange and soon-to-be Avengers: Infinity War actor fielded questions about his turn as the famous super-sleuth, and even touched base on the speculation linking him with the vacant (?) Bond 25 role. Indeed, Cumberbatch is a name that’s been tossed around numerous times before when it comes to James Bond, along with the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and even Jason Statham, but all signs currently point to Daniel Craig returning for one last hurrah in time for 2019.

Getting back to Sherlock, though, during last weekend’s panel, Benedict Cumberbatch addressed the romantic element underpinning the hit BBC detective series, joking that there’s only one true partner for Mr. Holmes.

“Now, there’s only one choice, isn’t there? Come on,” he told the audience of fans,

Phoebe Waller-Bridge now bookmakers’ favourite for the next Doctor in Doctor Who

With Peter Capaldi set to make his exit from Doctor Who in this year’s Christmas Special, the speculation as to who will be the next actor to take on the iconic role of the Time Lord is really heating up.

Although Death Valley star Kris Marshall was widely tipped to have already secured the role of the Thirteenth Doctor, we now have a new bookies’ favourite in Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge, while Michaela Coel (Chewing Gum) and Natalie Dormer (Game of Thrones) have both entered the betting after an influx of bets pointing towards the first ever female Doctor.

“A female Doctor Who definitely looks to be in the making as women dominate the betting after a massive reshuffle off the back of Peter Capaldi filming his final scenes as the time lord,” said Aoife Heffron of BoyleSports. “When the news broke that Capaldi would be stepping down as Doctor Who,

26 new UK TV shows to look out for

Louisa Mellor Jun 1, 2017

Some exciting new UK drama and comedy commissions are making their way to TV over the next year or so…

We know, we know. You still have two episodes of Fargo season two before you can think about starting season three. You’ve already fallen behind on American Gods. Your planner memory is chock-a-block with Big Little Lies and that Oj Simpson thing and some Spanish prison series your workmate bullied you into recording. You’re struggling to make time for Twin Peaks. New Game Of Thrones is just around the corner. And guess what, Netflix UK have just added a whole new season of It’s Always Sunny, those sods. You need a list of new TV show recommendations like you need a hole in the head.

All the Women Tom Hiddleston May or May Not Have Dated
Image Source: Getty / Justin Tallis Tom Hiddleston caused quite the fan-frenzy when he dated Taylor Swift, and rightfully so. Not only is the British actor quite the heartthrob, but his relationship with the singer marked one of the first times he had ever gone public with a relationship. Actually, his only other confirmed girlfriend was his Wallander costar Susannah Fielding (pictured below). The two dated for a few years but eventually broke up in 2011, when Tom reportedly decided to focus on his career. Following their split, he explained to The Daily Mail, "Acting just demands everything and if you don't give it everything, there will be someone behind you who will."

‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ Review

Stars: Kate Beckinsale, Theo James, Lara Pulver, Tobias Menzies, Charles Dance, James Faulkner, Peter Andersson, Clementine Nicholson, Bradley James, Daisy Head, Oliver Stark | Written by Cory Goodman | Directed by Anna Foerster

It’s been some five years since the last entry into the Underworld franchise – Underworld: Awakening, the third sequel to the 2003 original – no doubt because that film almost, Almost killed the series…. However as the saying goes, time heals and in the case of these movies that seems to be true. Not only has it been long enough for audiences to forget the risible fourth film, but the break in production also seems to have revitalised the filmmakers too – and this time round we have a film that truly lives up to the “vampires vs. werewolves” premise proffered so many years ago.

Whilst the politics and power-struggle machinations of Underworld: Blood Wars make this story feel overly complex, hence

‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ review: “One purely for hardcore fans”

Underworld Blood Wars review: Kate Beckinsale returns for the fifth film in the popular franchise, but is there still a thirst for this vampire/ werewolf action-horror feast?

Read our full Underworld Blood Wars review below.

Kate Beckinsale returns for the latest in the long-running and extremely popular horror-action series, the fifth (!) in the series, Underworld Blood Wars, a film that quite literally does everything that it says on the tin – bloody violence and stylised action drenched in moody, moonlit-blue hues.

This time around, Kate Beckinsale‘s death dealer Selene, once again finds herself caught in the middle of the continuing war between the vampire and the Lycans. After banishing her daughter to the unknown to protect her, Selene is enticed back to the vampire clan to train a future army of blood-suckers. There, things aren’t exactly what they first seem, and she immediately runs into the mysterious Semira (Lara Pulver

Underworld: Blood Wars review

Underworld 5 certainly has its problems. But it's a whole lot of fun...

If you’ve seen any of the previous four Underworld movies, you probably think you know what to expect from the latest instalment. And lord knows you’d be entirely right. A never-ending war between vampires and werewolves? Check. Post-Matrix gunplay? Of course. More leather outfits than the after party at London Alternative Market? Without a doubt. So why should you care at all about the latest in this aggressively generic franchise?

Well, that depends. Do you like fun? Because that’s what I find myself having here.

I know, I know. 'This movie is fun' is often a way of saying 'This movie is demonstrably bad if you think about it, so can we just not think about it so I don’t admit I like something stupid?' And while that may be partly true here,

A film shouldn’t have to start with a “previously on.” A film shouldn’t have to start with a “previously on” then continue to play out as a “previously on” with dialogue existing only as an expositional device to reinforce it’s existence as a “previously on.” A film should not; 20, 40, 60 minutes in drop in a further

Underworld: Blood Wars Review

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Daniel Goodwin

The last time we saw Kate Beckinsale’s blood-sucking, wolf-slaying, blade swishing Selene she was battling a digital were-blob in a car park at the arse end of Underworld: Awakening: the abominable third sequel which belted the franchise into apparent oblivion. Failing to keep her promise of reclaiming the world from Lycans, made during Awakening’s tepid finale, Selene vanished from our screens. Five years later and following a staggering turn in Love and Friendship, Kate Beckinsale returns, back on autopilot, into her comfort zone and to the role that made her famous. While half a decade can’t quite waft away the stench of its putrid predecessor, Underworld: Blood Wars is surprisingly decent and easily the best of the franchise so far.

Elite soldier Selene is living as an outcast with defector/ pseudo beau David (Theo James), hunted by Lycans and the fifteen century old
