Tarkin Care Of Business: Rogue One’s Digital Peter Cushing

One of the most exciting, groundbreaking and controversial elements of Rogue One A Star Wars Story, is the inclusion of a character, Grand Moff Tarkin, played in the original Star Wars by the now deceased Peter Cushing. Controversial, because the method used was a CG scan of his face over a physically similar actor (Holby […]

Star Wars And The Mystery of The Moving Death Star Dish

Ever wonder why in Star Wars, when R2D2 plugs into the Rebel’s Yavin computer, the Death Star plans show the weapon’s deflector dish slap bang in the middle of the equatorial trench? Well, wonder no more! (This piece contains a minor spoiler for Rogue one.) It’s basically because of this matte painting: Larry Cuba was […]

Rogue Female: A Star Wars Saboteur

In the latest issue of Empire, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story director Gareth Edwards muses on the enigmatic title of the upcoming stand-alone, sorta-prequel: Rogue, as in the first such story outside the main saga; Rogue, as in a call sign for the rag-tag rebels tasked with snatching the Death Star plans that ultimately […]

Star Wars Fan “Anthology”: Green Leader

Review: Monsters:Dark Continent

An overall annoying film. Firstly, an unnecessary follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ under the radar success, that subtly suggested we are ourselves the monsters, trampling over our fragile eco-system, and laying waste with weapons of war, the space creatures meanwhile, a serene, bizarre presence far less destructive than our own. Here, that point is hammered home […]

Scene Is Believing: Godzilla

Despite it feeling like 2014’s Godzilla spent half the run time trying to muscle into his own movie, certain part reveal sequences really impress. Many scenes in Godzilla are shot over the shoulders of  ant-like onlookers at unimaginable forces of nature treating their neighbourhoods as their stomping ground, reinforcing the sheer scale of Godzilla and the […]

Godzilla Review

It’s here. It’s finally here. A new Godzilla film. Something I think we all felt may never arrive, certainly not after the last attempt, which we can all agree was horrible. This time the ingredients are all in place. A young “hot” director, a solid cast and modern special effects, which can essentially deliver any […]
