Ignore the Cloverfield Part of The Cloverfield Paradox Ignore the Cloverfield Part of The Cloverfield Paradox

The Netflix Mind Trick worked on me and as soon as the Super Bowl was over I watched The Cloverfield Paradox. Despite the title and some other references it’s better to think of the movie as its own thing without connecting it to the Cloverfield universe.

Bright: A Rewrite Too Far Bright: A Rewrite Too Far

So I watched Netflix’s heavily advertised $90 million urban fantasy movie, Bright. I also got my hands on the February 2016 draft of the script that is making rounds on the Internet. And I realized one thing:

The Library at Mount Char The Library at Mount Char

This was a really good novel. Lemme tell you why.

Doctor Who "Twice Upon A Time" Review (Spoilers) Doctor Who "Twice Upon A Time" Review (Spoilers)

Twice Upon A Time is the final “swansong” of Moffat’s most would agree too long tenure as the head of the BBC’s flagship science-fiction show and is very much the product of the last seven inconsistent years of the show. The nearly hour long affair is a piece that ranges from heartfelt character moments to schlocky…

Red Dwarf Series XII, Skipper Review Red Dwarf Series XII, Skipper Review

While Red Dwarf XIs finale Can of Worms may have been a rather unremarkable if well put together finale that’s certainly not the case in a finale that is truly a masterclass of nostalgia.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Go Nuts Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Go Nuts

Welcome back to Robot Wars where today a combination of luck, mechanical failure, and sheer genius the joke robot of the revival managed to somehow win the heat.

Red Dwarf Series XII, M-Corp Review Red Dwarf Series XII, M-Corp Review

And the straight after last week’s brilliant commentary on a current issue the show manages it twice in a row, this time switching out politics for technology.

The Flash: Why women should not fight crime by themself The Flash: Why women should not fight crime by themself

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crushed Egos  Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crushed Egos 

Welcome back to Robot Wars and this week a well known egotist on the show once again went out a failure.

Red Dwarf Series XII, Mechocracy Review Red Dwarf Series XII, Mechocracy Review

It’s not secret I didn’t like the last episode but if that was the price to pay to get the absolute gem of an episode tonight then it was most definitely a price worth paying for what is probably the episode most likely to stand out this series.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crossed Wires Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: Crossed Wires

Today Robot Wars justified just why the new rule change is so beneficial when a pain in the arse returned and went straight out.

Red Dwarf Series XII, Time Wave Review Red Dwarf Series XII, Time Wave Review

Every series of a show drops the ball somewhere and it really does seem like this is where series 12 drops the ball. Time Wave as an episode is overall a bit of a mess sadly.

Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: The Kids Are More Than Alright Robot Wars 2017 Part Deux: The Kids Are More Than Alright

Today Robot Wars returned for its third rebooted series and it was a mixed bag overall. While all of the robots feel far better quality than previously the arena is in its worst state yet.

Red Dwarf Series XII, Siliconia Review Red Dwarf Series XII, Siliconia Review

Siliconia is probably one of the most complex episodes the show has ever put together and also filled with the most callbacks to the olden days of the BBC era of the show since transitioning to Dave.

Red Dwarf Series XII, Cured Review Red Dwarf Series XII, Cured Review

And so we begin with the start of series twelve of Red Dwarf and this is an episode that really does feel like a step back into the classic era of the show. While much of series eleven was all over the place though good this one feels like a much better return to form for the show.

The Problem with Death Note: It's Boring The Problem with Death Note: It's Boring

Here are the 6 most noticeable issues. WARNING: FREQUENT SPOILERS No. 1 - Light Much of the film’s dullness stems from its…

State of the Multiverse Address part 1: Arrow State of the Multiverse Address part 1: Arrow

It’s that time of year again, where all the shows have finished and we can look back and see what they did right, what they did wrong, and how they can improve going forwards. I’m currently writing year end reviews of all the CW DC shows, and first on the docket is Arrow. Arrow gave us a surprising year; the first…
