Hi everyone, Bryan here….


The VR (Virtual Reality) movement is hot and heavy right now with so many different VR Headsets available on the market from many different companies. It’s not surprise that the video game industry are making more and more games and experiences in the VR world, which has Hollywood wanting a piece of that real pie. Ridley Scott is now getting into the VR world with his upcoming new film ‘Alien: Covenant‘, which we saw the first trailer to that recently.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Hey guys, Jana here,


Ridley Scott has decided that as long as he’s getting such great buzz for ‘The Martian‘ and has all the press attention he could want, why not use it to tease the die-hard ‘Alien‘ fans at what is next to come in the franchise? Instead of months of calling the film a ‘Prometheus‘ sequel, we OFFICIALLY have a title – ‘Alien: Covenant‘ and we have a little more on the synopsis front, too.

Hey guys, Jana here,


Get ready for a wicked space adventure starring everyone’s mathematic brain-child, Matt Damon when ‘The Martian‘ lands in theaters on October 2, 2015! The film is based on a top-selling novel by Andy Weir and brought to amazingly realistic life by none other than master, legendary and beyond talented Ridley Scott (‘Alien‘, ‘Blade Runner‘).

Hey guys, Jana here,


The news is full of examples of a person overcoming what appear to be insurmountable odds. It’s no surprise that art imitates life in this vein. Granted the particular set of circumstances in this film have yet to be duplicated in reality, but it’s only a matter of time. I’m talking about the next Matt Damon vehicle, ‘The Martian‘.

National Geographic Channel has teamed with Tony and Ridley Scott to produce a two-hour documentary based on ‘Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever’ by Bill O’ Reilly.  The documentary, set to begin production in the spring for an early 2013 premiere globally on the National Geographic Channel, will keep the fast pace of the book, described as a historical thriller with a John Grisham-style narrative about the 1865 murder of President Abraham Lincoln and the furious manhunt for his killer.

Ridley Scott talks Alien Prequel…Gonna Be Hardcore

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 3rd, 2010

In a recent interview with Ridley Scott (director of the first Alien movie and Gladiator), he said concerning the two Alien Prequels “will be really nasty and tough to watch.”   He went on to say “We are talking about Gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet.”

He also revealed the film will explore the origin of the “Space Jockey” by saying…

“I sat thinking about the franchise, which now has died on the road somewhere way back and lying in the dust, and thought what I should do is go back. In the first ‘Alien’, when John Hurt climbed up and over the top of the rise. There was a massive giant lying in a chair.  The chair was either a form of engine or some piece of technology and I always thought no one has ever asked who was the space jockey?”

Ridley is set to direct the two prequels as of now.

Now I have a hardcore love for all the Alien films.  One of the first films I remember seeing besides E.T. was Aliens in the theater.  My dad took me to see it and I remember loving every bit of and how much it scared me.  I was an Alien fan for life.  Saying that I like all the Alien films but not as much as the first two.  It is good to see the original director come back and make a hardcore movie.  Now i wish it was not a prequel, but more of a re-imagining.  To be honest, most prequels are SHIT.  Just look at the Star Wars prequels.  And hopefully Ridley Scott will redeem himself from his recent turd effort of Robin Hood.

I Am Mother – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 9th, 2019


“I Am Mother is one sci-fi film that gets it right.”

As we’ve seen before, robots with artificial intelligence will either help us succeed into the future with a peaceful existence or completely obliterate the world population for their global takeover. With the new Netflix original movie I Am Mother, it’s not so black and white as that. There is a big gray area as newcomer directory Grant Sputore graciously tells the story about a human/robot relationship. This aptly paced thriller has some wonderful original ideas that are implemented with twist and turns throughout that never sells itself short on passionate participation. This is one sci-fi film that gets it right.
