Well knock me down with a 2 by 4 and beat my head in with a brick, would you believe it but the latest report is stating that Horror films feature violent acts! Yes, I could hardly believe it either, and being the scientist and sceptic I am I really … [Read More]

Title=Saw II Original Motion Picture Sountrack
Summary=A strong soundtrack comprising a range of metal bands from the softer tunes of Queens of the Stone Age over to the hard and unforgiving rage of Sevendust, a song that truly blasted me away.

Summary=Most influential or personally poignant movies

I’m sure there aren’t many people on the planet who would deny the pure sex appeal of Jessica Alba. The woman is sexy. She’s beyond sexy. She’s a total marvel. She’s got the hot brooding seductress thing that Angelina Jollie has… and yet the sweet innocent girl next door thing … [Read More]
John Scalzi is a writer, and a writer of science fiction to boot. He’s just released a new book called The Rough Guide to Sci-Fi Movies, and in it is a piece of perhaps controversial writing. It’s a Top 50 of the most significant science fiction movies of all time. … [Read More]
Now that the new video iPod and iTunes 6 give the user the ability to download TV shows for a small price ($1.99), an interesting problem is brewing. And it’s the worst kind of trouble… Union trouble. You see, according to CTV.ca, actors and writers are lining up and asking … [Read More]
