When a friend suggested I watch Battlestar Galactica, I thought they’d lost their mind. The year was 2008, not 1978. Why on Earth would I want to watch a Star Wars rip off with the dude from the A-Team in it? Turns out, I had the wrong end of the stick. I didn’t have Sky television or the Sci-Fi Channel and was totally unaware of Ronald D Moore & David Eick had re-imagined the promising but flawed 1978 series. Read on…
In 2009, a viral marketing campaign began at San Diego Comic-Con for a Peter Jackson produced Sci-Fi film, directed by Canadian/South African Neill Blomkamp. Based on his short film of 2006, Alive in Joburg, it centres on the arrival of an Alien craft over the skies of Johannesburg in 1982. The Aliens arrive, not with the usual intent of murdering us all and raping the planet of its natural resource, but because their ship is broken and they’re running out of food.
I was visiting a friend the other day, we were drinking coffee and discussing things like the recent terrible weather and something his kid loves called Paw Patrol. It was all very grown up.
Conversation eventually turned to Geek Crew Review and the lack of gaming content I was producing, he’s right, there is a lack of gaming content and I need to change this, for no other reason than to prevent the fanny from being correct.
I have always been interested in Sci-Fi/action films and TV shows. Inevitably, with all the action and movie violence there has to be weapons. A lot of iconic characters are inexorably linked with them. With that in mind, I decided to give my top ten. Here goes:-
Well, the final trailer for Marvel’s Battle Royal between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (and some Guardians of the Galaxy) versus Thanos, an enemy so powerful they may not be enough to stop. It’s a battle for the Infinity Stones, the population of the Galaxy and a war between Starlord and Iron Man to see who gets to come up with the plan!
We’re on our way back to Hogwarts in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. After 2016’s Harry Potter prequel, we get a look at Jude Law as a young Professor Dumbledore and a better look at Johnny Depp’s villain Grindelwald. I was pretty excited about this already but having seen this new trailer, my excitement levels have gone up massively. Roll on November!!
Word has reached us here at GeekCrew HQ that Jon Favreau is creating a new Star Wars TV show, which is to be launched on the new Disney streaming service, which is launching next year. Many Bothans died to bring us this information. Well, not really, we just read it on Twitter this morning.
