  • Punisher: Suicide Run by Steven Grant, Chuck Dixon and Larry Hama (graphic novel review).
    by Laurence Boyce on May 22, 2018 at 9:58 am

    While it’s easy to dismiss ‘The Punisher’ as little more than a right-wing fantasy writ large, those who followed the character’s titles during his late 80s/early 90s heyday would find that there was a little more substance. Some stories dealt with important issues of the day, an issue dealing with flag burning, at the time […] Related posts: Alien Legion: Dead And Buried by Chuck Dixon, Larry Stromm and Carl Potts (graphic novel).

  • Manifest (TV trailer).
    by ColonelFrog on May 21, 2018 at 1:48 pm

    Here’s a trailer for NBC’s new science fiction TV series, Manifest, which puts us in mind of those old series The 100 with a bit of Flash Forward added for good, or bad, measure. Montego Air Flight 828 lands after a turbulent flight, but its American crew and passengers find that during the two hours […] Related posts: Passengers: Titanic in space? (trailer).

    What, a 3rd trailer for the Mission Impossible Fallout film? It only seems like the 2nd movie trailer was just out. Well, this one rocks the Superman actor Henry Cavill channelling his inner Evil Magnum P.I.-look as a CIA assassin sent to help Ethan Hunt get his spy-game on. What could possibly go wrong?

  • Doctor Who Vol. 25: Doorway To Hell by Mark Wright (graphic novel review).
    by Laurence Boyce on May 21, 2018 at 11:59 am

    There was a certain ‘old school’ feeling to Peter Capaldi’s portrayal of the Doctor. Eschewing the youthful air of his recent predecessors, Capaldi was a throwback to the gruff air of William Hartnell alongside the genuine ‘alien-ness’ of Tom Baker. This collection of ‘Doctor Who Monthly’ comicstrips, published just after the strip and the TV […] Related posts: Doctor Who: The Highgate Horror by Mark Wright, Jonathan Morris, Steve Lyons, Roger Langridge, Scott Gray, etc. (graphic novel review) Doctor Who: Night Of The Whisper (Destiny Of The Doctor 9) by Cavan Scott and Mark Wright.

  • Bleeding Steel (scifi movie trailer).
    by ColonelFrog on May 18, 2018 at 2:05 pm

    Here’s some Jackie Chan action SF movie that looks so full of cheese it has to be made mainly for the Chinese market. It’s called Bleeding Steel. Jackie’s a cop who has to hunt down a rogue superhuman cyborg created by the evil military. It kind of looks like someone took the bad off-cuts of […] Related posts: AXL (YA scifi movie trailer).

  • AXL (YA scifi movie trailer).
    by ColonelFrog on May 18, 2018 at 1:59 pm

    In what looks like a modern updating of the film Short Circuit, here’s Axl, where a rebellious teen bonds with a dog-like escaped military robot and then has to go on the run when the evil corporation that designed it wants their steel killing machine back. Sounds reasonable to me! Hitting the cinemas 10th August […] Related posts: Kin (scifi movie trailer). Seven Sisters: scifi movie trailer for Noomi Rapace’s clone flick.

  • The Rookie (TV trailer with added Nathan Fillion).
    by ColonelFrog on May 18, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    So, what happened to Nathan Fillion’s character in Castle after the series wrap-up? Well, maybe, after a life-altering incident, he becomes an LAPD officer. As the force’s oldest rookie, he’s met with scepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can’t keep up with the young cops and the […] Related posts: Marvel’s The Defenders last trailer. Defenders trailer (Marvel TV series). Marvel’s Runaways TV series (1st trailer). […]

  • Magnum P.I. (trailer: reboot).
    by ColonelFrog on May 18, 2018 at 1:48 pm

    Here’s the first trailer for CBS’s reboot of the 80s detective TV series, Magnum P.I., starring Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum, a decorated former Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, puts his military skills to become a private investigator in Hawaii. This one has a female Higgins – a lot sexier than the […] Related posts: The X-Files reboot – new trailer gets stylish. Tomb Raider (trailer for the new reboot).

    by ColonelFrog on May 18, 2018 at 1:35 pm

    Deadpool 2 arrived in UK cinemas this week and in a new interview with the leather clad anti-hero, we learn about the eventful Deadpool journey from inception through to the “expansive two movie universe” it’s become.

    Here’s the second trailer for some intense mission-based spy-fi in Mission Impossible Fallout, starring SF author Stephen Hunt’s cousin, Ethan, in another spy based save-the-world type thing.
