Just in time for Halloween we watch one of the more interesting recent horror films, It Follows. How scary is it? Is it worth watching? How does Barbara cope with a horror movie without even a spaceship to focus on?
With Halloween rapidly approaching we have formed a circle and gotten out the oujia board to summon our favourite horror novels. Sadly horror-fiend Andy couldn't be here to share with us his deep abiding love for Clive Barker's Scarlet Gospels.
A new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has shown up. Is this looking like a good expansion of the Star Wars universe or a shameless cash grab? Or both.
Season 7 of The Walking Dead is about to lurch onto our screens and one of our cast of heroes (umm, well, protagonists anyway) look to be biting the dust thanks to everyone's new favourite couple, Negan and Lucille. In this episode we discuss season 6 of the show and theorise on who we think receives Lucille's tender kiss.
Sweet Christmas! Are these Marvel Netflix series ever going to stop? Well, let's hope not. The latest, Luke Cage, is here and we've watched it and now get out the utensils for a detailed critique and analysis of its plot, theme and characters. Hah! As if, nah, we just rant and talk the usual garbage.
HBO is here again with a new series, a reboot/re-imagining of the 1973 film Westworld. A couple of us watched the first two episodes and felt compelled to discuss it (without spoilers). Was this because it was really bad or due to it being great? Who knows? (Hint: it's bloody awesome)
In a change of pace, this week's Weirdsphere is a round-up of comic reviews of stuff we've been reading recently. There's some suggestions for things to read here, as well as some ideas on what to avoid!
Wormholes in space don't just create themselves you know. No, that's the job for a spaceship (calm now Barbara) with a small mixed species crew. Becky Chambers' The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet follows this crew on their latest mission and explores quite a variety of themes in this interesting but fun book. Join us as our own plucky crew dive into the book and dig into this world, characters and some of the topics raised by this novel.
