Posted By:

About a week ago, Eternals became available on Disney+.

We haven't had the opportunity to watch it in full yet but have seen the first half hour and it doesn't impress. Not that our expectations were high based on its low critic scores at cinema release, which have dropped even further since then from 71% to 48%.

Sci-fi anthology series SF8 has been added to SBS On Demand, which they describe as the Korean equivalent of Black Mirror.

Mad Multiverse Tease
Posted By:

Marvel have released a teaser for Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness.

It seems like Dr Strange's mucking about with time in Avengers: End Game might have had some unintended and very dire side effects.
