10 Reasons Why You Should Watch Altered Carbon

10 Reasons Why You Should Watch Altered Carbon

I’m hooked on the Netflix sci-fi series Altered Carbon. I’m trying to watch more sci-fi and find myself preferring ‘soft’ sci-fi, where the world isn’t too far removed from our own. The premise of Altered Carbon is simple: how would humans cope with immortality? It’s ‘hard’ sci-fi, but I decided to give it a go…

“No body lives forever.”

Genre Movies That Changed Film-Making: The Matrix (1999) Re-Examined on its 20th Anniversary

Genre Movies That Changed Film-Making: The Matrix (1999) Re-Examined on its 20th Anniversary

It’s a truth universally acknowledged that The Matrix is a great science-fiction movie, but there is more to it than that. For its 20th anniversary I’m going to take a look at all the elements that made The Wachowski’s movie such a cinematic milestone and how it raised the bar for all subsequent genre movies. When The Matrix was released in 1999 it opened up new vistas of imagination in screen science-fiction – a domain of cyber existence that no film had yet explored. It was a sci-fi movie that changed the genre. It was, in fact, a movie that changed film-making in general.

The fight for the future begins.”



Class of 1999 (1990, USA) Vestron Video Blu-ray Review

Class of 1999 (1990)

Class of 1999 is a spiritual successor to Mark L. Lester’s Class of 1984; a tale of revenge that depicted an increasingly violent gang clashing with the music teacher of a troubled inner-city high school. The tagline for Class of 1984“Look at us. We are the future. You can’t stop us. Don’t even try.” – was derived from a comment made in the film by the leader of the gang, Peter Stegman (played by director Timothy Van Patten): “I am the future!”
But that was 1984. The year is now 1999…

“The ultimate teaching machine… out of control.”

Dark Horse’s GREGORY SUICIDE is Dying to Be Born

Dark Horse's Gregory Suicide

This December, Gregory Suicide was released via Dark Horse Books to both brick and mortar, and online comic book stores everywhere. I have my copy, and I suggest you do the same. The hardcover graphic novel is written by Eric Grissom, with artwork by Will Perkins.

“[Gregory Suicide] deals with what it means to be flawed and the wonderful humanity in that, all while tackling our disposable society.”



Nemesis (1992, USA)

Nemesis (1992)

In 1992 Albert Pyun directed his 14th feature length film since debuting in 1982 with the sword & sorcery fantasy, The Sword and the Sorcerer. At the time of writing this review, Pyun has directed over 50 movies, so to say that Pyun, as a director, was (and still is) prolific is an understatement… He is a fucking machine!

From the moment the title appears, until the end-credits roll, Nemesis is a sequence of non-stop, over-the-top action set pieces woven together by a myriad of influences.

“In the future… it pays to be more than human.”



Japanese Animation: A Worldwide Culture

Devilman: The Birth (1987)Japanese anime has become a global worldwide culture for many reasons. Becoming popular in Japan after the second world war, anime provided an alternative format for storytelling. The common misconception in the west is that animation is primarily aimed towards the children, but this is not the case in Japan.

“For most Japanese consumers of anime, their culture is no longer a purely Japanese one (and indeed it probably hasn’t been for over a century and a half). At least in terms of entertainment, they are as equally interested by Western cultural influences as they are by specifically Japanese ones.”
