Warning: Spoiler Alert! turn back now if you haven’t seen this week’s episode of The Walking Dead.     Well, sand walkers were cool. It was also nice to see some beach terrain in TWD (sorry Fear the Walking Dead, I don’t count you). A colony of ultra-cautious women? Neat idea. Tara being dropped into it?  Okay, […]

Remembering The Falcon

You’ve all heard of The Saint... but whatever happened to his buccaneering contemporary The Falcon? Author Ian Dickerson remembers… Even James Bond’s adventures don’t span as wide a timeframe as those of Simon Templar, the eponymous ‘Saint’. He’s best known as played by Roger Moore in the classic 1960s TV show, but decades before that […]

Cars 3 looks dark as hell…

The teaser trailer for Cars 3 takes us to a very dark place… Because I have two small boys, I can pretty much quote Cars word-for-word – and although it’s pretty much an automotive version of Doc Hollywood, it’s still my favorite Pixar movie. It had great character development, it celebrated America’s love affair with […]

I stumbled upon this clever short video today on the internet, and it is a real treat for cinephiles like me. The Hateful Thing is a short film connecting the visuals of John Carpenter’s 1982 masterpiece The Thing and Quentin Tarantino’s latest opus The Hateful Eight. The editor here does a really terrific job of […]

While many consider the election results “the end of the world” there’s a far more permanent apocalypse coming according to legendary scientist Stephen Hawking. The other day ModCon02 shared with us some of the most cinematic end-of-the-world scenarios – but now we’re facing a real one. But don’t start squirreling away canned goods quite yet – […]

Eddie Redmayne is rumoured to be the next Doctor Who – and a ginger one at that! “Still not ginger!” With those words, Matt Smith became the beloved 11th doctor, and highlighted a running joke that the world’s favorite Time Lord is continuously disappointed that he hasn’t regenerated into a redhead. Yet. Because that might […]

The Walking Dead S7E4 Review: “Service”

Sam
0
Minor Spoilers Ahead! Although tonight’s 90-minute episode was titled “Service,” a more appropriate title may have been: “The Rape of Alexandria.” Tonight we sat back and watched Negan and his band of merry thugs come into Alexandria and take half of everything they owned. Oh, and Negan gets to define what “half” means. Fairness is […]

For no particular reason, ModCon has gone and compiled a list of movies that follow a certain theme. You could even say they have an “end of days vibe”.  Yes, comrades: it’s the Apocalypse. Now! Say what you will about 2016 – that it’s nasty, brutish and seemingly on a mission to kill off our […]
