If I had told 16 year-old-me that Ridley Scott would return to direct a new Alien film, he would hyperventilate with joy. Then if I told him that he would not only not be queuing up at his local cinema to see it on day of release, but wouldn't even be likely to ever watch it unless there was no better choice on a long-haul flight, he would have some kind of breakdown.

He will go on to see things we wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. He'll watch C beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. And he will go on to give Blade Runner's Rick Deckard the biggest challenge of his life. Friday, January 8, 2016 marks Roy Batty's incept date, or actual birth day as any fan of Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi classic will tell you.

Exodus: Gods and Kings - The Review

Ridley Scott, in my opinion, had not made a great film in years, so I didn't hold out much hope for his latest, the biblical saga Exodus: Gods and Kings. However, like 2014's Noah, this huge, visionary epic holds together well and is worth a look on the big screen.

Now, it's hardly a controversial view that people residing in North Africa and the Middle East during the era of the Old Testament weren't white. They were likely to be of an Arab or Black complexion. So imagine my disappointment upon watching this trailer, to see that pretty much every single character, other than a few background thieves and slaves, were white.

The rather dull and uninvolving third series of Homeland - and let's face it, it's been going downhill since the middle of the first series - is, I think, the result not just of the curse of 'sequelitis' but the impossibility of turning a crisis into a drama.
