Twilight Zone Impressions: The Comedian

For the past few years, we've all had our speculative science fiction itch scratched by the return and resurgence of Black Mirror and all of the shows it inspired. But despite having a new show with updated visuals and storytelling techniqu...

Review: Starfish

If one thing's going to strike you straight off the bat with Starfish, it's going to be that this movie is perhaps too hip for its own good. You got cassettes, rotary phones, plaid shirts, old movie theater tickets, tea, Victorian-era furni...

If someone were going to sell me a sex robot, I'd hope it would be Dean Cain. Like any good Silicon Valley entrepreneur, he has a palpably greasy smarminess, but you kind of like it. That's sort of how I feel about all of 2050 from this tr...

Review: Crossbreed

Everyone has a moment when they realize they've peaked. Maybe the so-called midlife is a reflex from this. You're sitting on the couch, watching Jeopardy, still trying to figure out why they ask with answers and answer with questions, and i...

Kyle Yadlosky's Top Five Movies of 2018

Last year was not a very good year. Politics were garbage. Economics were garbage. The world is probably going to end in like thirty years. I'm never going to be able to buy a house, and if I did it would most likely be swept away in a stor...

Review: Time Freak

If you love romantic comedies and sci-fi then you will enjoy Time Freak. When I first saw the trailer, I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. At first glance, it looks like another version of 50 First Dates but with the ...

New Captive State trailer warns of us of their lies

One of the longest traditions of science fiction is its incredible ability to address social issues and concepts without directly being about the specific social issues of the day. Captive State is very clearly a science fiction ...

James Cameron and Warner Bros. are about halfway through shooting Avatar 2-5, but we still know almost next to nothing about them aside from the fact that they'll take place on Pandora and a few casting tidbits. Now the&...

Review: The Dawnseeker

The worst kind of low-budget genre film is the type that fails to try anything new, that lacks any sort of creative hook or artistic flair. In an age where the cheapest of streaming services overflow with high-quality work, being nothing mo...

Review: Apocalypse Rising

Apocalypse Rising is such a banal, generic title. It’s a word combination that filters straight to the back of your mind. It sounds so tedious and lackluster that you would wonder why anyone made it and if anyone would be dumb enough ...

Star Trek: Discovery casts Ethan Peck as its Spock

If you watched all the way through Star Trek: Discovery you know that it ended on a cliffhanger that surprised, angered, and excited Trek fans. The show also heavily involved Spock's family, but no Spock. I'm going to talk about t...
