Primeval: New World

Primeval: New World

| October 26, 2013 | 0 Comments

As a spin-off of the British series, Primeval, this 2012-13 Canadian-British co-production certainly pays homage to its source, but ultimately struck out in its own direction. Set in the same universe, only on the other side of the pond so to speak, Primeval: New World follows a team in Vancouver who endeavor to protect the […]

Also known as Mega Cyclone, Super Storm first came out in 2011, but is now being released on Blu-ray for the first time.  Although, if you broke down (like so many of us) and purchased the DVD two years ago, giving up hope that the Syfy original would ever make its Blu-ray debut, don’t worry; I […]

The bad movie has become almost its own genre by this point, and like any other genre, some people catch lightning in a bottle and turn out really exceptional bad movies.  The concept of a “good bad movie” may seem oxymoronic, but if you’re someone like me who can’t get enough of these things, then […]

Remember the time a World War II Navy Destroyer fell out of the sky and destroyed a Chicago Skyscraper?  Well, the producers of The Philadelphia Experiment do because this film is based on actual events.  Basically the story is that a team of scientists aboard the aforementioned Navy Ship, in an attempt to render the […]

Earth’s Final Hours

Earth’s Final Hours

| April 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

One of my all-time favorite guilty pleasure movies is The Core with Aaron Eckhart, Hilary Swank, and Stanley Tucci.  The story is about a manmade weapon that stalls the rotating core of the planet and causes the electromagnetic field to deteriorate.  As a result, the Earth is plagued by electrical storms and solar radiation.  I […]

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome

| February 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is everything a prequel should be and creates an exciting chapter that no Battlestar fan should miss. Set during the first Cylon war, Ensign William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) has just graduated from the academy and has been stationed on the Battlestar Galactica. Paired up with his mouthy co-pilot, Coker (Ben […]

Being Human: The Complete Second Season (SyFy)

Being Human: The Complete Second Season (SyFy)

| January 2, 2013 | 0 Comments

Something is different about season two of SyFy’s Being Human. Maybe it’s finally cast off the burden of living up to its BBC predecessor, but it feels like there’s something more to it. With the first season, the cast has enough charm and charisma to make some of the obviously recycled storylines bearable, but it […]

This has got to be the first Syfy original movie I’ve seen that I didn’t know was a Syfy original when I started it.  It’s pretty easy to figure out once it starts; you just have to be able to spot the trademark characteristics.  First, a ridiculously impossible premise.  From megasharks to icequakes, Syfy originals […]

Lost Girl: Season One

Lost Girl: Season One

| October 23, 2012 | 0 Comments

If Joss Whedon is a geek god, then consider Michelle Lovretta a disciple of his work, with her creation of Lost Girl. At first, it may look like Lost Girl is attempting to emulate Buffy’s formula, but don’t let it fool you for one minute. The series stars Anna Silk as Bo, a succubus that […]
