Have been a die-hard Doctor Who, Star Trek and Sic-fi fan for as long as I can remember. This site is part tribute to everyone involved in the genre and a bit of fun. If you do take the time to read some of this stuff, then share it around - would be appreciated. Thanks Stu

Dumb and Dumber To

I know it’s in its early days yet, but I have to say I am already looking forward to this film.

Both leads are outstanding actors in their own rights, but together they create magic.

Dumb and Dumber is one of my favourite films and having read a brief synopsis of the sequel I don’t think its going to disappoint.

Jar Jar Binks

When the creators of this character realised just how fucking terrible it was actually going to be, they rewrote the code for the CGI. They inserted subroutines that actually blocked the character from your memory approximately 20 seconds after the film ended. They hoped that this would discourage people from talking about how awful this animated series piece of shit really was.

As we all know, though, the experiment failed and this character is burned into our brains… never to be removed – except possibly by shock therapy or heroin.

Jurassic Park – 3D ***Spoilers***

Well, I’ve never seen the film in its entirety before… bits here and there, that sort of thing. Not really a dinosaur fan. I have to say, though, that I really enjoyed it. It’s a tiny bit obvious from the opening few minutes of the film that it is all going to go horribly wrong – which kind of ruins it a little bit – but it is executed well and looks absolutely stunning.

The 3D effect is very good – although you can tell in places that it has been added in afterwards – but this doesn’t detract from the film in any way. The scenes where extinct creatures are running about really work well, and even this cynical old reviewer suspended his disbelief in certain parts.

As always with films, it’s the on-screen technology that lets it down and the fact that they were running a “UNIX” operating system that a 12 year old girl could hack into was a bit too far for me.

Anyway, great film, really enjoyed it, if it is on in IMAX 3D near you I really suggest you go and see it.

Rogue River (My IMDB Review)

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I have just had the pleasure of watching this wonderful film. I think if I ever see it again I may just implode with excitement.

I know I ticked the spoilers box thing, but to be fair, not a lot really happens to spoil.

She’s really stupid, gets roped into things so easily she deserves her fate, she screams a lot, people get shot, more people get shot, totally bland sex scenes happen, ridiculous deaths occur, more people get shot, someone gets stabbed and then it ends.

I can’t actually bring myself to remember the plot – as there isn’t one.

Do not watch this film. I think it sounded pretty good as an idea, but was realised in such an awful way that every copy needs to be found, shredded, burned and then dumped somewhere on the dark side of the moon.
