X-Men: Apocalypse (2016) – Bryan Singer

  There’s probably a good, or at least a passable story somewhere amongst the mutants, Singer as a director has done some nice work with Marvel’s X-Men franchise in the past, but this time, it just feels like too much flash, and no substance. To say the visual effects super-saturate this film is an understatement….

X2: X-Men United (2003) – Bryan Singer

  From apes, I move onto mutants with the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. Having previously covered X-Men for the blog, I leapt ahead to X2. Picking up a few months after the ending of the first film, director Bryan Singer expands on the world he helped bring to the screen in the previous film. This time…

Superman Returns (2006) – Bryan Singer

  It’s back to the Sci-Fi Chronicles book (I realize this one is starting to overshadow the Great Movie – 100 Years of Film book, but I’m really enjoying it, especially when I can chain-watch a series of films one after the other). This time, I have a look at Bryan Singer’s 2006 update of…

X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) – Bryan Singer

Featuring an all-star cast the legendary and iconic X-Men characters made an incredibly successful jump to the big screen. I remember when I first saw this one, my friend Dennis was very eager to see it, he’d…

Battlestar Galactica… Has It Been 35 Years Already?

There are those who believe…that life here began out there, far across the Universe…with tribes of humans…who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians…or the Toltecs…or the Mayans…that they may have been the architects of the Great Pyramids…or the lost civilizations of Lemuria…or Atlantis. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man…who…

Planet of the Vampires (1965)

  14 years before the Nostromo took flight to terror in Alien in 1979, the Argos and it’s sister ship the Galliot were heading to a mysterious planet they call Aura, investigating a signal that has been transmitting for two years (I don’t know if that means they have FTL travel but I guess for…
