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 […]

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.

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.

Only Good Things Deserve “Cumberbatch-ing” There are few things a real comic book fanboy can do to get his superhero rush jonesing more than watching the Doctor Strange movie. They are the following: Getting art lessons from Steve Ditko, actually receiving real super powers, and dating someone that gets your juices flowing – in that […]

Who is the greatest fictional president of all time? It’s election day here in the United States, and after being on double, triple, quadruple super secret probation, I’ve been warned by the Editor in Chief (I mean Chief Editor) Doug that if I post anything political, he and I are going to have an Alexander Hamilton/Aaron […]

Ant-Man’s Fluid Physics

Wait… Ant-Man’s physics MAKE NO SENSE!   Last summer’s Ant-Man was one of the unexpected delights of the Marvel cinematic universe. Not only did it give us the one founding member The Avengers had been missing (albeit in the form of a different incarnation of the hero) it was also one of the funniest, and […]
