BBC’s long running science fiction stalwart “Doctor Who” has returned for its ninth post-reboot series. I managed to avoid the spoilers, trailers and pretty much dived into it unaffected by the various bits of media floating around. Having watched the first episode I was deeply disappointed. Are we to see another excellent actor in Capaldi wasted […]

Looking at this image in full size on a large screen is incredibly restful.

With the forthcoming launch of Star Wars : The Force Awakens there are plans afoot for a movie marathon to prepare ourselves. The problem with this is The Phantom Menace. It’s an awful, pointless, badly acted and poorly plotted mess of a film. So bad, in fact, that I didn’t want to watch it. So how […]

They’re hardcore science fans, the very people that the British Government wants to encourage to study and have careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Yet when they approached their school to seek assistance they were turned down. Arranging a visit to […]

The media is now reporting a conclusion to the Greek negotiations and that further bailout funds will be made available. In what seems like quite a climbdown the Greeks have agreed to a number of conditions, one of which is quite troubling. Within 48 hours of the agreement being made the Greek government must enact […]

Just sat through Scintilla (aka The Hybrid) and what a strange film it is. If you could imagine a gritty reboot of Resident Evil this might be it. A team of mercenaries wander into a mysterious lab, hired by a company, etc, etc, etc. There’s the slightly unhinged leader, the Merc with a heart and a […]

Sometimes we all think the universe revolves around us. But what if it did? What if our existence determined whether the universe continues to exist? A moment before the alarm started John Stock was awake. He lay on his side looking at the large red numbers on the front of his radio alarm clock, […]

The rebooted Star Trek films from JJ Abrams has created a bit of a schism in the Star Trek community. A bit like Marmite, it appears you either love ’em or hate ’em. If you’re a fan of “The Original Series” (or TOS as it has become known) then the chances are <a href=”http://whatculture.com/film/15-blunders-that-ruined-j-j-abrams-star-trek-and-destroyed-the-franchise.php” target=”_new”>you’re […]
