My Happy Place

If you don’t recognise the picture that I’ve used at the top of this post, it is of Spaceship Earth in Walt Disney World. I’ve worked there in the past, and I still refer to it as being my dream job. In fact, I would happily go back right now if I could.  I’m not too bothered about most of the... Continue Reading →

Sci-Fi London Part 2 Longs

I wrote about the short films that I had the opportunity to watch during this year's Sci-Fi London, not onto the fully fledged films. But before I begin a side note about the festival itself. This was my first year going, and I enjoyed it immensely. I don't consider myself as someone who goes to... Continue Reading →

Sci-London Part 1 Shorts

Last week, I had the opportunity to spend some time at The London International Festival of Science Fiction and Fantastic Film. It's better known as, in a less keyboard bashing way, Sci-Fi London. As the UK's only film festival dedicated to Science Fiction, it is the best place to see new independent films in a... Continue Reading →

Avengers: Infinity War Thoughts

It’s been almost two weeks since Infinity War came out at the cinema, so by now most people will have seen it. If you haven’t, I am going to advise that you stop reading now. Beware, there be spoilers ahead. The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is a juggernaut unseen previously in the world of film.... Continue Reading →

Legends of Tomorrow Season 3

Legends of Tomorrow continues to be my favourite superhero television show. It’s fun in a box, in a goofy sort of way. Arrow is all dark and brooding. Supergirl is a social warrior. Flash is the personification of healthy living. The Legends are sitting in the corner drinking a cold one wondering while thinking that... Continue Reading →

May the Fourth Be With You

Today is international Star Wars appreciation day, well for those people who are fans of the films anyway. It’s a good excuse to get out your imperial uniform, go dum dum dum dum de dum dum de dum, or even do the following. Insert Admiral Ackbar impersonation. It kind of sneaks up on me every...

League of the Non Aligned

I’ve previously mentioned in passing that I am a member of a sci-fi group. It’s called the League of the Non-Aligned, or LOTNA for short. The name comes from Babylon 5, hence the picture, which gives it bonus points in my book. This past weekend the group has been celebrating it’s twentieth birthday, and I... Continue Reading →

Black Lightning Thoughts

I’m not a big comic book person. I know who all of the mainstream heroes and villains are, but once you go into the second tier I haven’t a clue. When I first watched Arrow I had no idea what to expect, and I had the same wide eyed naivety going into the first episode... Continue Reading →

Body Swapping

As fans of science fiction and fantasy we know that certain types of episodes are repeated from show to show. What favourite programme of ours hasn’t had time loops, alternative dimensions, duplicates, doppelgangers or dream sequences? Some such as Sliders even use one of these troupes as its central premise. I have a soft spot... Continue Reading →
