I'm at the movies or writing reviews

If you enjoy watching the Sci-fi Series “Fringe”, you are going to LOVE “SPLICE”

Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) are young, innovative and brilliant scientists, acclaimed for their work in the field of genetic engineering. Their experiments, involving  the splicing  of DNA from different animals,  to create bizarre and interesting new hybrids,  are well-known, but this is not enough for the two.  They are about to embark on a secret mission -  combining human and animal DNA in a hybrid that they believe will have a positive effect on science and medicine.

The Crazies

If you are a fan of  Horror/Thriller Movies, you’d be crazy not to see “The Crazies”!

I am not much of a fan of horror movies, although I used to be in my youth, but “The Crazies” doesn’t really fall squarely into the horror movie genre, as such.  It’s a horror thriller, mixed with elements of sci-fi and whilst it certainly had it’s “jump out of your skin” moments, it was more of an “edge of your seat” kind of movie, for me.
