What are they going to do in an 90 to 120 minutes of movie world time? Tell us about that one time Adama spanked Apollo for disobeying orders? A mini-collage of Starbuck kicking ass and changing the game? A Rambo-esque montage of Gaius Baltar being a raging dickhead?

William Higham

Prog style was a visual reflection of the music. An eclectic, over-the-top, mind-expanding mix of historical and future influences, it blended science fiction/fantasy, surrealist art and the penetrative psychiatry of R D Laing.

Through my nursery and primary school years the good Doctor will be my truest and most reliable friend.

Gravity (Review)

Alice Charles | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Alice Charles

Gravity is simply beautiful to look at, a galactic ballet, if you like. Tears float like bubbles and flames curls like tendrils of golden ringlets, and all the while planet Earth is spread out before the astronauts, an awe-inspiring tableaux. Meanwhile, Jonas Cuaron's script ups the ante at every turn, keeping us hooked and fully invested in the story all the way.

Robert Bradley | Posted 05.11.2013 | UK Entertainment
Robert Bradley

Celebrated for his various fantasy works and the award winning novel Osama. Tidhar's latest outing makes it clearly evident that he is also cut from an identical cloth of my own and thus a great fan of the comic book genre.

Could Sci-Fi Hold the Key to Our Future?

Michael Edmondstone | Posted 08.10.2013 | UK Tech
Michael Edmondstone

In a world of tech start-ups and digital innovation, have the best minds of our generation dedicated themselves to small-scale projects and forgotten about the lure of sci-fi style space exploration? Peter Thiel, one of the Silicon Valley boffins behind Pay Pal, believes this could be the case. And he says the 'collapse of science-fiction' since that 60s could be an explanation.

Ripley's Believe it or Not

Jon Spira | Posted 01.08.2013 | UK Entertainment
Jon Spira

As the crowd gathered outside in the summer sun, I developed a knot in my stomach. It was an exact mix of sci-fi nerds and people with massive grins on their faces expecting a work of ludicrous ironic genius. I have to admit that I had bought tickets in feverish haste as a combination of both of these attitudes but, filing into the theatre, suddenly felt awful.

If two of a nation's biggest cultural icons are face-changing aliens it should be considered more than a coincidence. Born in the public imagination within six years of each other David Bowie and Doctor Who have taken strangely similar journeys.

Film Review: Dark Skies

Jack Pelling | Posted 02.06.2013 | UK Entertainment
Jack Pelling

The chief problem with Dark Skies is its unfading sense of familiarity and despite a few red herrings, horror fans will have little trouble joining the dots from the off. The film is littered with genre clichés, and the obligatory twist is immediately foreseeable from the glaring contrivances in the plot.

Doctor Who Is Missing

Will Porter | Posted 09.03.2013 | UK Entertainment

The BBC had a nasty habit of wiping old recordings to reuse the tapes. Had it not been for one heroic BBC staff member, armies of fans and occasional discoveries in foreign TV archives it could have been a lot worse, but the fact remains that we are still missing 106 episodes.
