Review: Source Code

Source Code is a solidly cool film, with a great performance by the cast, especially Jake Gyllenhaal. It is a pretty good sc-fi film, and though it won’t leave as much an impression as inception, it’s very similar, but much smaller in scale. It’s a very well rounded film for being just 90 minutes long, which is good for preventing boredom. Continue reading

Review: Equilibrium

I love The Matrix!

Equilibrium is a very good film. There's the action, there's the setting, there's the story and the characters... they are all fantastically well realized and in many ways better than some of the films people claim it has copied from. It's a fully enjoyable film, not too long and not too short, and is absolutely worth a watch. 8 Keanu's out of 10.

Review: Moon

Working on the moon is tiring work, why don't you take a seat Sam?

Directors Father

Moon is a film about a moon base, with only one worker. Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell). And with his Computer companion GERTY (Kevin Spacey) they work to harvest the moons supply of energy. While he is there though, he has a little, accident. Which leads him to discover a few things about the base, leading to a confrontation with something familiar. I totally Loved this film, the acting by Sam Rockwell was absolutely immense, and quite emotional as I almost cried at one point. I give this 8/10 David Bowies (you'll get it)

Review: 2001: A Space Odyssey

The greatest scene in film history.

This is a film that cannot be defined with a single word. But if I had to try, I think i'd go with 'Monumental'. There is absolutely no excuse to not watch this film. Ahead of it's time by decades, why do we have stupid films like Avatar when a film about 100 times more intellectually mature and massive in scale was created 40 years ago? I'll leave that one to you. 10 monoliths out of 10.

Review: Gattaca


That's Vincent. Oh Wait, shh you're not supposed to know that!

Note: This is an old format article. The article formats have been revised so please check some of our more recent ones! Thank you!

Gattaca is set in a dystopian future style world, where your death is predicted as soon as you are born. When Vincent Freeman is born (played by Training Day star Ethan Hawke) you see a nurse print out and read off a list of the probabilities of him contracting various diseases, and you hear about a heart condition that gives him only a 1% chance of surviving past 30. Job applications are similar, from a single drop of blood down to even just a handshake they can find out everything about you, which makes it (almost) impossible for disadvantaged Vincent to get the job he always dreamed of and go to space, with the company Gattaca.
