Thousands of years in the future, a city known as “Eden 3” is inhabited solely by robots whose former masters vanished a long time ago.
On a routine assignment, two farming robots accidentally awaken a human baby girl from stasis questioning all they were taught to believe — that humans were nothing more than a forbidden ancient myth.

Mini Reviews

Raya and the last Dragon -Disney+

Last year Disney Pixar released a truly marvelous film called ‘Soul’ and 1 year on they have done it again. Characters are original although, as usual, the star has an animal sidekick. Some of the most striking imagery that Disney has ever produced and plenty of jokes, action and a storyline to keep the whole family entertained for 1hr 47mins. Give it a watch and transport yourself into the mystical world of dragons, you will not be disappointed.
Well done Disney!

Rating (Interim)

The Nevers
Okay so I’m only one episode in but it’s clear that it’s going to take an episode or two more before I even begin to understand what’s going on. I get the basic plot: a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world. Fantasy certainly; intriguing definitely; watchable absolutely. Superb production and excellent performances all round. Time will tell.

Surprised if this gets a second season.

Intergalactic Sky One
The saying, you can’t judge a book by its cover also applies to a series by its promo.
The year is 2134, binge drinking is still a thing and 1990’s vocabulary trips off the tongue, even a split tongue.
Sets and production values are reasonable but the cast, although trying their best, is fighting against the quagmire of a cliché riddled script. To return to the book analogy, if the first chapter doesn’t grab you it’s unlikely you’ll finish the book.


Army of the Dead – Netflix
After Zack Snyder fans saw the ZSJL cut their expectations may have been too high for Army of the Dead. This is not a superhero film and is not to be taken seriously. You could also say that it was more like a cannibal film than a zombie film. The script was a little cheesey and the acting was below par (may be David Bautista should not be a leading man). Don’t expect too much and don’t expect awards. It was enjoyable and gory but predictable, but what zombie films aren’t?
