The tools of Doctor Who

The last couple episodes of Doctor Who have been a welcome change.

The leaps of Captain America

20th Century Fox has re-released its 1992 version of Captain America in the hopes of attracting the legions of new fans who enjoyed watching the most recent iteration of the superhero story.

The hand-wringing and hand-washing of Contagion

Contagion is a well-wrought cautionary tale.

On The Definitive SF Works of Chris Foss

There are only a handful of artists who paint nearly all of the science fiction book covers we see. At the forefront of this insular industry is Chris Foss, who has painted covers for hundreds of books, and sketched conceptual drawings for many films.

The colors of Justice League #1

The New 52 is DC's attempt to refresh its readership by restarting all of their titles at once in a new version of the shared DC universe. Justice League #1 - released this week - is the first book in the new line.

The children of Thundercats

Thundercats is just a few episodes in, but the show is likely losing most of its adult audience. It’s a great shame because the new series started out so well.

The mortality of Torchwood: Miracle Day

We’re just a couple episodes away from the end of Miracle Day, and the clues seem like they are finally coming together.

The war crimes of Doctor Who

Yes, I had issues with the mid-season finale of Doctor Who a few months ago because the show spent half a season building up to a conflict that was resolved too quickly and neatly in just a single episode.

The changes and tears in Life & Death of a Sex Doll

Life and Death of a Sex Doll is a touching coming of age story in a unique, and sometimes amusing, sci-fi setting.

The heroes of Alphas

Alphas is actually exceeding expectations.

Ronan the Barbarian

We haven’t gotten a great fantasy movie in quite a while, and Conan doesn’t change that. It’s not a terrible film, as most other critics seem to want you to believe so far, but it also falls way short of the marks it set for itself.

The freedom fighters of Shrapnel: Aristeia Rising

This seems like a good time to take a closer look at Shrapnel, particularly since a film adaption of the novel is currently in development.

Is Eureka still worth watching?

Now that Eureka's days are numbered, is the show worth watching?

The windows of Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Is it too early to declare 'film of the year'?

The poisons of Torchwood: Miracle Day

We’ve now seen four of the ten-episode mini-season of Torchwood, Torchwood: Miracle Day. The plot is being revealed at a good pace, and the villains are even beginning to emerge.

The paws of ThunderCats

The new ThunderCats adaptation premiered this past weekend on the Cartoon Network. It’s taken the story of the original ThunderCats and modernized it with some changes.

The bracelets and sidearms of Cowboys & Aliens

The new film, loosely based on the graphic novel, is a rousing adventure, but don’t put your thinking caps on.

The cubs of Voltron Force

The new Voltron series has got eight episodes under its belt, and after a slow start, is a fun homage to the original.

Software weeds out fake online reviews

Many online reviews appear too good to be true - and they are. Earlier this year, for example, the Federal Trade Commission fined a music tuition company $250,000 for posting fake reviews of its own products.

The swords and stars of Conan the Adventurer

Just in time for all of the hype around the upcoming Conan film, Shout! Factory is releasing the first season of Conan the Adventurer on DVD.
