Thor , huh, yeah, what is it good for?

20 Reasons We Love Doctor Who in the 2000s
It was the decade which saw a whole new generation fall in love with Who, and here are 20 reasons why.

Ender’s Game
Orson Scott Card’s opinions on gay marriage may have turned Ender’s Game into one of the most notorious films of the year, but director Gavin Hood tells us there’s a lot more to the movie than that.

Masters Of The Universe
We take a time machine back to 1987 for the ill-fated He-Man adaptation Masters Of The Universe . If only they’d have put Battle Cat in there.

Colton Haynes
We speak to the Teen Wolf / Arrow star about life as a superhero sidekick.

Reviewed And Rated
This month we cast a critical eye over Riddick , Wicker Man: The Final Cut , Byzantium , Arrow Season One, Stephen Baxter’s Proxima , Batman: Year Zero , The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and the latest Doctor Who audiobooks.

True Blood season six gets the Scritptease treatment, we speak to Under The Dome / Breaking Bad ’s Dean Norris, and we analyse the latest episodes of The Almighty Johnsons , Continuum and Teen Wolf .

Red Alert
We look ahead to Terry Gilliam’s latest , The Zero Theorem , Snowpiercer , Gravity, the last episode of Futurama and catch up with Flash Gordon ’s Sam J Jones.
