The presses have been offline for a while thanks to real life, but real life didn’t stop news from happening. Here are a few of the stores we found interesting or exciting while we were sleeping.
Movies, Reviews / Comments Off on Review: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ is as good as the original.
The original Blade Runner is held up by many as the gold standard of dystopian existential science fiction films. It asks questions about the nature of humanity and what it means to truly live while at the same time painting a picture of a world that seems to have broken under the weight of more people being alive than ever before. It’s an acknowledged masterpiece –even if it took a decade or two and two different directors cuts to get to that status– and that’s a lot to live up to.
And I’m here to tell you that it does. I’m also here to tell you that you should probably go into it as cold as possible, so maybe bookmark this and come back to it after you’ve seen the film to see if you agree with me. I’m not going to say any major spoilers but regardless, this is your warning.

News / Comments Off on Fifty Glorious Photos From The Making Of Return Of The Jedi
I love Return Of The Jedi. It’s become a bit of a whipping boy for the original trilogy, with many criticsising the Ewoks as the first grand Lucas mistake of “playing to the kids” in what would become a franchise tradition. However, remember these are the cute furry bears who were about to char-broil Han and Luke alive – presumably to eat them, because spitroasted meat is awesome in any galaxy – and could take down an armoured Imperial Stormtrooper with just rocks and sticks. Adorable little barbarians.
Movies, Reviews / Comments Off on Quick Reviews: ‘Expendables 3’ and ‘About Alex’
I saw two movies whilst on vacation and while they’re both trying to be something they aren’t (a guilty pleasure and a shiny new The Big Chill respectively) only one kinda succeeds.

News / Comments Off on UPDATE: DEBUNKED: Rumour: Disney To Continue Indiana Jones a la James Bond, Potentially With Bradley Cooper
Update: sources tell SlashFilm that this rumour isn’t true.. I still think it’s the best idea to move forward with though. Original post follows
Remember how one of the problems with Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was that Harrison Ford is, well, kinda too old for the role now? Turns out that Disney may end up recasting the role but rather than rebooting the franchise as is all the rage these days they may just go the route of James Bond and make more films with new actors, and apparently at the top of the list is Bradley Cooper.
