Ex Machina Review

For all the talking we do at the Comedy Film Nerds gargoyle garage about how hard it is to find really good science fiction these days, I have to admit that I’m impressed with 2015 so far. We already have two great sci-fi films and we’re only a quarter of the way into the year.…

TCM Classic Film Festival 2015 Part 2

Hey there! I’m back to regale you with the rest of the TCM Classic Film Festival weekend! When we left our protagonist (me), he – I – was preparing for Saturday’s events.

The cast really does elevate the material, and as usual, Neeson makes the most of the genre. Just as well, too. I read…

It Follows Review

It Follows is thick with dread, letting the audience wring their hands or clutch the armrests for nearly the whole of it’s 100 minutes. This is more my kind of…

Chappie Review

The tagline for Chappie is “Humanity’s last hope isn’t human.” There’s a lot of potential in that statement, and in the premise of this film. Sadly, the tagline should read “Science fiction’s last hope is not Neill Blomkamp.” Oh, I wanted him to be. District 9 was an excellent sci-fi film with social commentary without…
