Hawking (2004) (TV)

The life and work of the theoretical physicist Professor Stephen Hawking who, despite being diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the age of 21, has galvanized the scientific world with his ground-breaking work on the nature of the universe.

A TV docu-drama well produced in good taste depicting Hawking's early years; Benedikt Cumberbatch is excellent in the title role.

Skyline (2010)

Strange lights descend on the city of Los Angeles, drawing people outside like moths to a flame where an extraterrestrial force threatens to swallow the entire human population off the face of the Earth.

Badly scripted sci-fi alien invasion movie with some great special effects (and monsters), but also with an odd, disconcerting ending.

Maltin BOMB: "Lame sci-fi thriller polfers from INDEPENDENCE DAY, TRANSFORMERS, and several other superior films, but the end result resembles nothing so much as a direct-to-video potboiler. Even the special effects aren't all that special."

Monika Jagaciak

New Stuff: Perry Rhodan
