A Thousand Kisses Deep (2011)

In Back to the Future, Doc Brown built a time machine out of a DeLorean. In A Thousand Kisses Deep, they’ve made a time-travel story out of a Leonard Cohen song. Not bad! One description of the movie goes: “An unsettling drama that…

Looper (2012)

Rian Johnson’s time travel thriller arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this week and while it isn’t quite the ground-breaking Matrix-esque Sci-Fi spectacle that it was initially billed as, it is nonetheless an impressively atmospheric and…

Detention (2012)

Assigning a movie to a specific genre is not only helpful as a means to categorise them, it's also a useful marketing tool. Horror and science fiction fans in particular can have a voracious appetite for their favourite genre, once you've…

Men In Black 3 (2012)

I, like a lot of other people, really, really enjoyed Men In Black. In fact, I still do. Unlike a lot of other people, I also really enjoyed the sequel. It wasn't up to the high standard set by the first film but it was more good fun…

While the 1970s did not overflow with lots of fantastic sci-fi movies (other than Star Wars), the 1980s is a whole ‘nother story. This is where the modern sensibilities and progressive ideas that were released in the ‘60s and ‘70s really…

Primer (2004)

Perhaps the most enjoyable thing about the science fiction genre is just how wide-ranging it can be. A lot of people always think of shiny spaceships and transporter pads and huge space battles but it can also be strongly grounded in a…

The Time Travelers (1964)

Danish writer/director Ib Melchior was a huge sci-fi fan. He directed two science fiction movies which are minor classics today (the other being The Angry Red Planet from 1959), and served as screenwriter for no less than seven sci-fi…
