Twelve Kings in Sharakhai

You may recall that I gave Bradley P. Beaulieu's The Lays of Anuskaya series glowing reviews, going as far as to claim that it was one of the most interesting fantasy series I had read in the last decade or so. The series was dark, ambitious, complex, and populated with a great cast of characters that leap off the pages. Show More Summary

[Review] Takashi Miike Overloads With ‘Yakuza Apocalypse’

Takashi Miike. Depending on the horror fan, Miike is either a genius director or just plain crazy. After seeing Audition, Ichi The Killer, and sitting through his Masters Of Horror episode “Imprint”, I’m still unsure of what to make of the man. There’s no doubt that he’s talented, but the off-the-wall craziness and his obsession […]

The Best Effects in The Martian Are the Ones You Don't See

13 hours agoGenres / Sci Fi : io9

When you watch The Martian, obviously you know it’s a big visual effects film. But many of the effects themselves are not as obvious. Director Ridley Scott didn’t shoot on Mars (shocker!) so, to make where he did shoot look like the red planet required the kinds of effects you never really think of. Read more...

We’re three episodes into Minority Report, and it’s 100% settling into its crime procedural format. Which would be perfectly fine, if it weren’t so pleased with itself for being in the future. Spoilers ahead. Read more...

The World of ‘SOMA’ is Just as Freaky With Live Actors

It’s been a few weeks since the release of SOMA, and I still find myself thinking about some of the things it made me do. Decent folks don’t take helpless people off life support just to open a door, so in order to maintain the illusion that I am, in fact, a decent person, I […]
