Chris was originally pitched the idea of doing a Sci-fi podcast whilst on a rocky ledge with no means of escape. Since then he has begrudgingly taken part, eager to promote his twin loves of dinosaurs and Star Trek.

This week Chris hosts as we take a look at Danny Boyle's Sunshine, the first of a loose (and late) horror trilogy of shows. Disagreement is rife about whether this is a good film, half a good film, or just rubbish all the way through....

James Cameron really loves the water, so he made a very expensive film that was very difficult to film so he could become a fish for a few months. The result is The Abyss, a clunky blockbuster that has a lot more issues than its watery setting.

Remember how great Predator was last week? What a well thought out, tightly scripted and tense action film it was? And remember Predator 2? How it took that formula and transplanted it to a city, adding police procedural stuff and weirdo cults to create some fresh and exciting?
Well forget all that because this week we watch Predators, where gruff librarian Adrien Brody leads a group of dull Z-listers around a fake jungle in a vain attempt to locate the magic that made the original film so good.
