As much as I love Christopher Lee, one of the reasons Dracula is my least favourite of his famous roles is that he generally doesn’t do or say very much in the part. He’s given a bit more than usual in 1970's Scars of Dracula, a film that also has some of the best examples of the Hammer aesthetic and one of the…
I... OK. You got me there, Discovery. I was determined to call you STD for at least the rest of the season, but you caught me off guard. Star Trek Disco, I like. Spoilers.
Is anybody there? I don’t think so, but let’s do this anyway. I used to put some reaction threads for TWD but nobody on the ODeck seems to be watching, so I reckon I can just put some collected thoughts of the episodes for those interested and in case people want to discuss the show.
After last episode’s cliffhanger we finally get payoff from the five episodes / twenty years that have gone by. Say hello to A. Malcolm!
Auntie Beeb has announced an all new crew for the TARDIS. When Jodie Whittaker takes over as the Thirteenth Doctor Who in 2018, she will be joined by Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill.
Today Robot Wars returned for its third rebooted series and it was a mixed bag overall. While all of the robots feel far better quality than previously the arena is in its worst state yet.
There was no new episode last week but the show put out this video that distills the six aired episodes of The Orville down to just over eight minutes. By stripping out the humor and sticking to the major plot points (SPOILERS obviously) it plays as straight space opera and homage to Star Trek.
The Doctor was once again pitted against the absurdities of his own show in the 2012 Sixth Doctor audio play The Fourth Wall. The audios have done this a few times with stories like The One Doctor—also a Sixth Doctor audio—though The Fourth Wall ostensibly sets its sights a little wider, satirising space opera serials…
Last night’s episode of Inhumans bugged me so much that I began to imagine a better version of the show. Everyone can see the issues with the show: the lack of budget, the rushed pace of production, the generally poor writing and direction. There are good actors, but they have a hard time elevating the material they…
Today we see someone else on the run from the Wraith and then Dr Daniel Jackson returns to Atlantis.
Tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak. Dirk literally falls out of the sky... well out of the trunk of a car that fell out of the sky... or was it a tree? It’s all a bit confusing, but would we expect any less from this show.
For all the wonderful things about them, one can’t ignore the inherent chauvinism that often turns up in Hammer horror films. Usually it manifests in a female protagonist who likes to wander naively into dangerous situations wearing negligee but sometimes, as in 1966's The Reptile, there’s a little more too it than…
Because the early bird catches the worm. Or the fish. But only if he fights the system!!!
Good Evening fellow Reactors!
Warren leads the team east through The Great Pile, a seemingly endless landscape of rubble and destruction. But once they enter this state-size scrap heap, they are forced to keep moving. There things worse than Zs stalking its ruins... enders, Zona snatch squads and an angry young blue (or gray) girl, who is pissed…
I dunno about chu, but I’m beat. It’s the openthread, have at it in the comments. Or don’t, I’m not the boss of you.
Our task was to try to decide which horror movie villain was the greatest of them all. That time has come. We started out with sixty-four villainous villains, and after much bloodshed only two remain. Which one will be crowned, and which one will be the victim?
