The Next Doctor Should Be A Woman

2017 will see the tenth season of the rebooted Doctor Who (the 39th season overall), and also the final season for showrunner Steven Moffatt, who took the reins in 2010 with the introduction of Matt Smith as The Doctor. Moffatt, much like his predecessor Russell T. Davies, was at the helm for two Doctors: Smith and the current Doctor, Peter Capaldi. It is assumed that when Chris Chibnall takes over the show in 2018 he will want to do so with his own Doctor much like the two previous show runners did. The BBC have yet to make the announcement but all the rumblings point to this happening and, logically, it makes sense. Doctor Who is in that...

From First to Last Movie Special: The Terminator/Terminator Genisys Jan04

From First to Last Movie Special: The Terminator/T...

For the latest episode of From First to Last, I’m joined by Anton Reyes for a special movie episode about The Terminator, looking at the 1984 original and the most recent Terminator movie, Terminator Genisys. In this episode, we discuss how we both came to see the original, our favourite moments from the movies, how the original is a slasher movie while Genisys is a sci-fi rom-com, and our mutual freak out during the eye operating scene. We both find time to gush over our love for Arnie and Stan Winston’s incredible special effects, and give praise to James Cameron for creating something that is both incredible dated and has aged like...

Going Back and to th...

JFK is 25 years old this month. It is still a fascinating movie that is unique in so many ways. It is essentially a three hour accusation against the US government of killing John Kennedy made by a three-time Oscar winner with an all-star cast. It won two Oscars and 16 other movie awards, and...

And Yet More Star Wars Spin-Offs We Want to See Dec16

And Yet More Star Wars Spin-Offs We Want to See

It’s that time of year again. With Star Wars growing and growing with each week bringing more news about future installments, whether to the main series of the spin-off series, we’ve decided to give you five more spin-offs we would like to see get made. If what Disney is seeing is true and this franchise will last forever. then chances are you’ll get to see all these movies get made eventually. Ahsoka Tano Ahsoka is a character introduced in The Clone Wars who quickly became a fan favourite. She is the young padawan of Anakin Skywalker who picks up a lot of his bad habits ( the good habits though, not the killing children...

Why You Should Be Watching Star Wars: The Clone Wars Dec15

Why You Should Be Watching Star Wars: The Clone Wa...

Before we being, let me establish something right off the bat. I love Star Wars, but I hate the prequels. There are some who would defend them but historically, I have never been one of those people. They are badly made, badly written, and have aged like fruit left out in the sun. They are nigh unwatchable. Or at least I thought that they were until I watched The Clone Wars TV series. Somehow this show managed to do the unthinkable. They improved the prequels. They made them seem less like utter failures and more like parts of a bigger story. And I don’t mean the whole Star Wars franchise as the bigger story. No, I mean the prequel...

Rogue One Is Beautiful and Bloodthirsty Dec14

Rogue One Is Beautiful and Bloodthirsty

Overview: A ragtag group of rebels try to steal the plans for the Empire’s newest weapon, The Death Star. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures; 2016;  PG-13; 133 Minutes. Long Odds: Disney and Lucasfilm, much like the characters in the newest Star Wars film, had a huge mission. With their acquisition of the Star Wars brand, Disney announced a seemingly endless franchise with a new Star Wars movie every year for  the near future. Some chapters would be continuing episodes of the original saga while others would be spin-offs. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the first of these spin-offs and, in terms of the new business model, the most...

5 More Movies That Need a Black and White Release Dec09

5 More Movies That Need a Black and White Release

George Miller’s masterpiece Mad Mad: Fury Road was recently re-released in cinemas around the world, converted in black and white, or rather black and chrome. The new version, much like the old version, is incredible, and the conversion works so well that after the first two minutes you forget you’re watching a black and white movie. There are actually scenes, like the war rig passing through the crow’s swampland, that are improved with the lack of colour. This got us thinking about what movies would benefit from the monochrome treatment and we’ve put together five here for you Looper Rian Johnson’s career has mostly been spent wading...

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer Has Knights & Nazis Dec06

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer Has Knights ...

Yes, there are now five Transformers movies. Transformers: The Last Knight keeps delivering the stuff that has made this a multi-billion dollar franchise: pretty people, Mark Wahlberg’s inventor character, explosions, fighting robots, actors slumming it (Sir Anthony Hopkins has entered the robots in disguise phase of his career), car chases, exotic locales, and people shouting things like “This isn’t over!” What’s new in Transformers: The Last Knight? Nazis and King Arthur. I’m not sure how prominent these elements will be, perhaps they’ll just be part of a montage or the cold open, but at one point you see a...

The Mummy Trailer Offers a New Twist On An Old Story Dec05

The Mummy Trailer Offers a New Twist On An Old Sto...

When they announced they were remaking The Mummy again I wasn’t hugely surprised. When they announced that the cast would be led by Tom Cruise I was massively surprised. Cruise is arguably still the biggest star in the world and The Mummy seems pretty small fry, but once it was announced he was in it along with Russell Crowe (as Dr. Henry Jekyll) Courtney B. Vance, Sofia Boutella (Star Trek Beyond) and Peaky Blinders‘ Annabelle Willis, then suddenly this jumped up into my most anticipated movies for 2017. The trailer offers something new from the cheesy period piece Mummy movies made by Stephen Sommers and Rob Cohen, with the...

Overview: A father and son fight over the same woman while the city is stalked by the Greasy Strangler. FilmRise; 2016; Rated R; 93 minutes I Don’t Get It: I don’t know why this movie exists. I don’t know what it’s trying to say. I can’t imagine the two writers felt that this was a story that...

Monster Fest 2016: Safe Neighborhood Is The Perfect Movie to Go Into Blind Dec01

Monster Fest 2016: Safe Neighborhood Is The Perfec...

Overview: A babysitter and a 12 year old face an unusual home invasion during the Christmas season. Storm Vision Entertainment; 2016; Not Rated; 85 minutes. Twist: Safe Neighborhood is a tough movie to review because of the twist that occurs at the end of the first act. It is such a good twist that the only way to review it is to talk around it and be as vague as possible. Safe Neighborhood is ostensibly the story of a 17-year old babysitter, Ashley, played by Olivia Dejonge (The Visit), who is tasked with babysitting 12-year old Lucas, played by Levi Miller (Pan). Lucas is lovestruck with the older girl and, as she is leaving for college...

Monster Fest 2016: Free Fire Shoots to Kill Nov30

Monster Fest 2016: Free Fire Shoots to Kill

Overview: An arms deal goes sour leading to a long, long shoot out between two gangs. A24; 2016; Rated R; 90 minutes. Shooters: Ben Wheatley is possibly my favourite director working today. He makes the kinds of movie I like, and he does it with style and wit. He also directed some great Doctor Who episodes, so that definitely puts him in my cool book. His filmography can’t really be pinned to a single genre and with each movie he has honed his skills and pushed himself forward. In accordance with this pattern, Free Fire is a fantastic movie made with an assured hand. It is a film of tiny scale with a small cast and simple plot....

Overview: A history of the Process Church of the Final Judgment, told by it’s members and fans. Neil Edwards; 2016; Not Rated; 101 minutes. Cult: Cults are inherently fascinating. I think, deep down, we all watch cult stories with a certain smugness. We find amusement in these narratives about everyday lives being completely upended by the arrival of some sort of ultra charming person claiming that they are God or the messiah convincing multiple folks to abandon their possessions and join the cause. We all like to think it will never happen to us, that we are so secure in our cynicism or existing beliefs that there is no chance that a...

Overview: Two brothers find a horror board game that seems a little bit too real. Destroy All Entertainment; 2016; Rated R; 84 minutes. VCR Games: In England in the ‘90s, there was a huge trend for video board games. The premise was that along with the usual dice, pieces, and board, the game...
