Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice Review

To say 2016 has been a year (which is barely four months old) for contentious movie releases is an understatement. Accusations fly and still do regarding The Force Awakens being a Jawa in Jedi’s clothing, and now we have Batman v Superman, which shares the dual dubious honors of some of the highest grossing weekends for a movie but also ...

Gold Coast Supanova Wrap-Up

The beginning of another Con season in Queensland saw the Gold Coast host yet another relatively successful Supanova.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Review

  With the most anticipated movie in years, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, opened in Australia at midnight on the 17th December 2015. This should have been a date and time on everyone’s calendar.

3010- The Righteous Path premiere

  By Sarah ‘Gallifreya’ Minazzo Science Fiction wouldn’t necessarily be the genre that comes to mind when you think Australian film and television, however the cast and crew of 3010 hope to change that.

Unfortunately its on a Sunday so it doesn’t have the added spooky cache of being on a ‘Friday the 13th’ but at least most people will ... Read More »

Oz ComicCon VS EB Games Expo!

Okay so of course this is an absolutely ludicrous comparison which no journalist worth their salt should even attempt to make. Apples and Oranges. Dogs and Ponies. Capes VS DVD’s. Hell, Even a blogger like myself would be expected to know better, as one convention is ostensibly a large mainstream pop culture event which casts a wide net across every ... Read More »
