    Ghost in the Shell 2017 - Spoilers allowed

    So, the movie is out. Has anyone seen it? What did you think? The critics seem satisfied, stating that it boasts great visuals and manages to bring the atmosphere from the original. But they also say the characters are somewhat lackluster. A safe by the numbers movie. I thought one review was...

    How to ruin a classic movie

    Up first we have the classic neo-noir sci-fi film by Ridley Scott and the amended final words of Roy Batty: "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be...

    If we find a structure on Mars

    Let's say one of the future robots on Mars finds an ancient structure hidden in a cave. No aliens or other apparent signs of current occupancy, but just a building visible from the mouth of a cave. How would we go about exploring it? I'm talking practically, what would be the proper...

    Exotic Matter

    I'm trying to wrap my head around exotic matter. As far as I understand it, this hypothetical matter is partly used to make work the math that would make wormholes stable. My question is could this be normal looking matter with strange properties? If, instead of attracting like regular...

    Deadpool (Spoilers)

    What a breath of fresh ass this movie was. Without exaggerating, I loved every minute of it. There were scenes where I and the rest of the audience couldn't stop laughing. I've grown increasingly indifferent to the various Marvel movies from the MCU. Each iteration putting me to sleep...

    Rugby World Cup

    The Rugby World Cup (RWC) started yesterday. Once every four years we get to see the top 20 nations in rugby slug it out until one of them comes out broken, bloodied, bruised but victorious. Does anyone follow it? Who are you rooting for? Who are you expecting to win?

    Alien as made by Neill Blomkamp

    So we might see a new Alien that ignores the Prometheus expansion and Alien 3 and Resurrection. I'm cautiously optimistic. I've liked everything Blomkamp has done so far but I was so terribly disappointed by Prometheus that I'm completely jaded and wary of new forays into the Alien universe...

    British and Irish Lion tour Australia

    Is anyone following the Lions' tour down under? Barring today's game against the Brumbies, I've been impressed with some of the combinations played. So far my favorite game was the one against the Reds, with Quade Cooper dictating a thrilling fast paced game against the tourists. What do you...
