A look at movies, especially films based on books (Yes that includes comics); Opinions, facts, movie charts, production news and, when possible a look at the movies VS their source material. I may also champion books I've read that really should be movies. I've also used it to display the unedited versions of my blogs for SyFy; (The sci-fi channel UK website.)Feel free to let me know about any stories that you think deserve the big screen treatment.

Real Steel; 2 minute video shows how to make a paper model of one of the movie’s robots...
This is pretty impressive. It’s great if you’re into this
kind of thing and a cool thing to do with your kids if you’re not. That’s do
with the kids, not have them sit in a corner whilst you do everything and
pretend you’re working together.
Make a paper robot model North American version...
“A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future
where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, Real Steel stars Hugh Jackman as
Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when
2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a
small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end
bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next.
When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son
Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in
the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all
odds, get one last shot at a comeback.”
