Love (2011)

A terrific sci-fi film that examines loneliness, the journey of life and how we touch others. Absolutely loaded with imagery that will give you plenty to think about after the credits have rolled. A must watch film for those bored by the CGI, inane dialogue and weak characterisation and plots of modern science fiction movies.

Event Horizon (1997)

Alien crossed with Hellraiser sci-fi horror. Some nice semi-hard sci-fi toward the beginning. Overall silly but fun.

Conan the Barbarian (2011)

I enjoyed it more the second time around. Jason Momoa was a decent Conan, well better than Arnie anyway! I just don't understand, when they have a huge amount of stories to pluck ideas, places and characters from, why they came up with an original plot. I'm still waiting for the perfect Conan movie but for the time being this is the best of the lot. Please can we have a multi-linguist, intelligent, panther like Conan next time?
