Movie Review: The Neon Demon (2016)

SKIP Director Nicolas Winding Refn‘s films have always been well received at Cannes Festival, so The Neon Demon was no exception in the 2016 ceremony. In particular, 16 years old Elle Fanning was still in high school while filming this film. Fanning got lots of press for this film, overshadowing older sister, Dakota Fanning, who has been taking on maturer roles.  […]

Movie Review: Supernova (2000)

In an era where we always crave for the newest things, we may have missed really good (worth watching) films that are simply oblivious to us. The one I found in my DVD stack was Supernova (2000).  Why is it more enjoyable to watch it now? – The actors. All of them are still in the industry, which […]

These giants have appetite only for living humans.They grab them and mostly swallow whole. The unfortunate ones may have their heads or limbs bitten off. […]

A neuro-engineer is probably best way to describe Nathan(Oscar Isaac), who is at the verge of an important step towards human evolution: an A.I. that is physically 100% human, […]

Biology of Xenomorph in Alien: an attempt

If you are reading this and read my three posts on Prometheus (2012) you know that I am obsessed, a little, with the franchise, which brings me to write another postmortem, but this time focuses more  on the biology of the xenomorph. Evolution is about survival of the fittest as Darwin proclaimed, as such, mass reproduction will guarantee […]
