Since gaining popularity in the mid-90s, Ridley Scott’s film Blade Runner has been viewed by many as the first and last word in sci-fi. Its depiction of a polluted, rain-soaked, and crime-ridden future gave us a textured world that revolutionized the dystopian sub-genre. Blade Runner’s iconic take on the world of tomorrow may remain unmatched in the cinematic universe, but that does not mean it … Continue reading The Blade Runner Legacy: Six Shows That Rival the Dystopian Classic – ScreenHub Entertainment
These days, it’s hard to think of Aliens vs. Predator without rolling your eyes. The title evokes less than pleasant memories of the 2004 film and its abysmal sequel, films that seemed more like B movie fluff than anything else. But there was a time when Aliens vs. Predator generated a lot of excitement in the fanbase, with titles that were comparable to the films … Continue reading A Different Kind of Star Wars: An ‘Aliens vs. Predator’ Retrospective – Screenhub Entertainment

Though considered a classic, James Cameron’s Aliens isn’t without its critics. A sequel to Alien, one of the most persistent criticisms of Cameron’s film was that it de-mystified the creature. Its approach is said to lack the personality of the original beast, dumbing it down to an unintelligent animal that more closely resembled an insect. While certainly an issue found in various comic book and … Continue reading Why ‘Aliens’ Didn’t Turn The Monster Into A Space Bug – ScreenHub Entertainment
As a lifelong fan, it’s hard not to get excited after the debut of the spectacular trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters at Comic-Con. Not only does it boast some breathtaking images and the return of several series icons, the set-up seems similar to one of the most warmly regarded entries in the original Showa series; Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster.

Most people don’t think ‘art’ when discussing Predator. The 1987 science fiction classic is fondly remembered for spectacular action, quotable dialogue, and a monster who has joined the ranks of Frankenstein and Dracula as a cultural icon. However, many overlook some of the film’s more subtle underpinnings. Though at a glance the film is just another entry into the 80s cycle of action films, it … Continue reading Why ‘Predator’ Is A Subversive Masterpiece – ScreenHub Entertainment
The big winner at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con was without a doubt Warner Bros, dishing out a ton of amazing trailers and news, including a sneak peek at Wonder Woman 1984, a surprise trailer for Shazam!, a look ahead at their TV programs including a look at the DC streaming service, and killer trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald; a contender for best trailer of the show in my opinion. But the clear audience winner was the trailer for Aquaman. At the time of the start of this writing, a day after the trailer debuted, it’s still the number one trending video on youtube. The film is due this December and has only just started its marketing campaign, causing a lot of hype and anticipation around the film. Now that the trailer has surfaced (sorry), let’s talk about it and why it was actually a bit of a letdown.
Ridley Scott’s Alien prequels have attracted much controversy. Some have praised them as fresh and innovative, while others have criticized them as unrecognizable from the original classic. Longtime fans have nitpicked both Prometheus and Covenant, but nitpicks are often symptomatic of a much larger issue. The biggest complaint fans had with Prometheus and Alien: Covenant wasn’t character development, plot holes, or even the series moving away from the Alien itself. It was the gradual stripping away of the unknown.
