NSFCCDP Movie Review: 300 – Rise of an Empire – hmm, can you wake me up when it is over? UPDATED


After the graphical brilliance of 300, I had slightly decent hopes for this sequel that would follow the Athenians against the Persian navy knowing that Leonidas and his 300 were slaughtered in the former film. Well, it was pretty much … Continue reading

Movie Reviews: Oldboy (2003) and Pulp Fiction (1994) – two incredible classics

M.poulet and I reluctantly went to see the second Hobbit instalment. Reluctantly, because we were both very disappointed with the first one (too much liberty taken with respect to Tolkein, crappy music, mediocre acting and what are orcs doing in … Continue reading

NSFCCDF Movie Review: Ender’s Strategy – Quidditch in Space?


The SciFi this year has been, well, disappointing to say the least. Some had hinted that Ender‘s Strategy would continue the upward shift since the great Gravity helped make up for the disasters of Star Trek Into Darkness and Elysium. … Continue reading

NSFCCDP Movie Review: Elysium (2013) – Not bad, but not District 9 either

NSFCCDP Movie Review: Pacific Rim (2013) – It came from the depths…and should have stayed there…


Continuing its current losing streak, Hollywood‘s latest scifi thriller, Pacific Rim, failed to impress me. m.poulet was more forgiving, primarily because of the homages paid to Japanese robotophilia and the classic scifi elements employed. I found it to be overbearing. … Continue reading
