Caesar Becomes Full On Messiah in Final Installment of Apes Reboot Trilogy

– By J.W. Fox – WARNING: SPOILERS FOLLOW The rebooted Ape movies have been built on ideas rather than special effects, nostalgia, or star power. All three movies explore racial conflict, hubris, slavery, evolution and the conquest of reason by fear. The third film adds an interesting religious element not present in the first two. […]

Colony on the Verge of Greatness, Just Needs Hope

– By Paulie Spiceflow – Colony is a show hitting well above its weight class. Forgive the sports metaphor but there isn’t a better way to say it. The dystopian drama is head and shoulders better than its cable sci-fi competitors but has yet to gain recognition or see record-smashing ratings on USA. Better than […]

Thoughtcrime 48: Colony, The Expanse, Rebels, and More

  I return after a month hiatus to talk about Colony, The Expanse, Star Wars Rebels and more. It’s a slow time of year for movies but March looks to be very promising with Ghost in the Shell, Logan, and King on the way. Aviator’s Madbeach Wheat is the beer for the show. Join me […]

Thoughtcrime 43: Walking Dead Midseason Finale 7

  The Midseason Finale for Walking Dead failed to impress viewers, including me. I review the first half of season 7, and everything wrong with it (i.e. Negan, painfully slow pace, too many subplots), and why I think the show has past its peak. Something this good cannot last forever, and it is time to […]

The Last Girl by Joe Hart

Thoughtcrime 037: Titanborn

  Author Rhett C. Bruno joins me to discuss his new novel Titanborn. In this gritty and innovative science-fiction thriller in the vein of Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, turmoil on one of Saturn’s moons rattles Earth’s most powerful citizens—and draws one planet-hopping rogue into a fight he never saw coming.

Titanborn by Rhett C. Bruno

– By J.W. Fox – It’s been a while since I’ve had the chance to post a book review. Much to my disappointment, it has been very difficult to find a quality indie sci-fi novel. There is simply too much chaff, that it takes time to come across something of quality. When all is lost, […]
