The Winter of '84: 2010: The Year We Make Contact (Article) - 12/11/2014 2:42:02 AM

The Tsien craft and the ill-fated Chinese mission to Europa is missing from the film version too. The Leonov sending down a probe and finding the life-form replaces the whole storyline.

I think I like the cold war themes and initial ship board conflict they over come works better on screen than the books 'nicer' atmosphere would have; from a dramatic point of view.

Another poke about the net and I see SyFy has optioned another A C Clarke novel, Childhood's End. YeaGads! That was lost in preproduction long before V stole a load of ideas from it. I remember seeing preproduction paintings in a magazine (Starlog??) before I was married (plus 29 years ago). I just need some one to make a decent film out of Rendezvous with Rama and all will be complete (will someone in Holywood listen to Morgan Freeman, please!).

Syfy are reported to be planning to film 3001 as a mini series for next year. It was report last month but I've heard nothing about it since.

A good solid scifi movie. Given the choice between 01 and 10, I'd plumb for 2010. As much as I loved 2001 it is as boring as watching paint dry, and I tend to watch it in half hour 'episodes' to get to my favourite parts

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.:%u2026Ye Who Enter Here Review (Article) - 12/6/2014 1:03:56 PM

Not reading this . . . I'm only episode 2.2

MARVEL%u2019S STAR WARS #1 %u2013 PREVIEW (Article) - 12/6/2014 12:58:26 PM

I'm still after The Starwars series from last year based on GLs 'original' story. Looks like buying them digitally before they are gone for good.

Orci out as Star Trek 3 Director (Article) - 12/6/2014 12:53:36 PM

I don't recall Frakes doing any films since Thunderbirds ....shudders.... plenty of TV episodes though. Orci hadn't official been listed as directing anything, so it may be a good thing but we'd never know now.

What about someone no connection with Trek (like Nicholas Meyers before ST2), say Steve McQueen. ...Min wanders off for a moment  .....  12 years an Orion slave girl ....

Just give us a good story. They'd better get the crew out there and doing some old fashioned adventuring and exploring. Very little of that has been seen so far.

The Fall of '84: Supergirl (Article) - 11/27/2014 6:03:36 PM

Would Tank Girl qualify as a SH movie?

Star Wars The Force Awakens Teaser Trailer Screening Details (Article) - 11/24/2014 5:09:23 PM

No way can I justify to the wife the 7000 mile round trip.

DOCTOR WHO CHRISTMAS SPECIAL TEASER (Article) - 11/10/2014 4:49:41 AM

Oh Er missus. I think it was one of those slap forehead moments. Santa and his gangsta elves.
