70% Son of Batman (2014) With a title such as Son of Batman you'd be expecting some more kiddy-friendly material, but this latest made-for-DVD animated effort by Warner Home Video is simply too violent and bloody for younger viewers.‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page

Read More | Posted Jan 18, 2013
78% Dredd (2012) The judges are portrayed pretty uncompromisingly unlike the Stallone flick which tried to tone down the whole Fascist Police State thing.‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page

69% It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958) Unintentionally funny low-budget 'Fifties horror effort. ("Mars is almost as big as Texas," one character thoughtfully muses at a point. "Maybe it's got monsters.")‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted May 11, 2012
27% Underworld: Awakening (2012) We can never tire of watching Kate Beckinsale prance about in that tight leather outfit I tell ya. Never!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted May 6, 2012
25% The Divide (2012) It is all rather unremittingly grim. Like watching one of those elaborate 'Seventies social behavioral experiments designed to illustrate how crap human nature is.‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2012
92% Corman's World: Exploits Of A Hollywood Rebel (2011) Along the way this documentary interviews the likes of Nicholson, Ron Howard and (of course) Corman himself. Add some scarce footage and you've got a winner that is sure to please die-hard fans as well as newbies.‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Apr 18, 2012
37% Lockout (2012) The sort of low rent action movie thing they made in the 1980s and 1990s, which usually starred Rutger Hauer or Christopher Lambert.‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Apr 12, 2012
24% Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (2011) Entertainingly bad. In fact, it's the funniest movie we've seen this year even though it isn't a comedy (we think).‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page

62% Final Destination 5 (2011) we just like good-looking young people being killed off in inventive and gruesome ways! Death is a sick puppy . . . and so are we!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Dec 9, 2011
72% Fright Night (2011) Another week, another remake of a 1980s flick! As someone once said it is as if Hollywood is deciding which movies to make by flipping through their DVD collection!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Dec 5, 2011
35% The Thing (2011) Critics were wrong about the original movie back in 1982. They wrong about this one too!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page

88% Batman: Year One (2011) The graphic novel, as they say, is always better but this animated adaptation of the 1980s comic isn't half bad . . .‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Oct 11, 2011
No Score Yet Robot Chicken: Star Wars Episode III (2010) Not as funny as the previous two, this new installment still boasts some funny comedic gems. But maybe it is time to give the format a rest now.‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page

No Score Yet Space Battleship Yamato (2013) When aliens are about to blow up the Earth you make haste to stop them, but the protagonists of this live action movie version of the 1974 anime however find the time for long teary farewell scenes!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Sep 23, 2011
11% Creature (2011) The sort of Z-grade trash you expect to come across on Syfy whilst channel surfing late one night, not something you'd expect to pay good money to watch on the big screen.‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2011
No Score Yet Red Faction: Origins (2011) Stands head and shoulders above the scraping of the bottom of the Sarlac pit world of Syfy movies such as Almighty Thor and Battle of Los Angeles. That however doesn't mean that it is any good though . . .‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Sep 9, 2011
84% Contagion (2011) No science fiction bulls**t!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page

Read More | Posted Sep 7, 2011
No Score Yet Ferocious Planet (2011) It's probably a case of lowered expectations - this IS after all a Syfy channel movie! - but Ferocious Planet is actually (dare we say it?) okay-ish . . . ‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Aug 30, 2011
79% Melancholia (2011) The movie should have been titled 'Full-blown Depression' instead!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page

70% Limitless (2011) Is Limitless a science fiction movie?‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted Jun 8, 2011
No Score Yet Thor: Tales Of Asgard (2011) Don't judge this DVD by its cover: the movie might as well be called Young Thor or I Was a Teenaged Norse Deity!‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted May 12, 2011
No Score Yet Almighty Thor (2011) Almighty god-awful more like it . . .‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
Read More | Posted May 10, 2011
No Score Yet Ultramarines: A Warhammer 40,000 Movie (2011) It feels like one long extended cut scene from a videogame, probably a PC game dating from a decade or so back considering how clunky the animation is . . .‐ Sci-Fi Movie Page
