Something to Do: Movies

There isn’t even a doubt, this weekend is all about Blade Runner 2049, the sequel I have been wanting to watch for 30 years. There are an awful lot of critics saying this story may be better than the original, I will reserve judgement until I get to see it for myself. But I have […]

American Gods trailer

It was the reaction of some world-class authors to the statement made when Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced on […]

Tor’s Free eBook for February: Bloodline Feud by Charles Stross

iBoy trailer

Based on the 2010 Kevin Brooks novel, Netflix’s iBoy should be a wild ride. It looks like they did it as a single movie rather than a series, and you can watch it on Friday the 27th. Yes, that does mean the end of next week.
