SFX  |  August 2016  


STAR TREK BEYOND
Nature, as a certain Vulcan once observed, abhors a vacuum. So does Paramount Pictures. So when JJ Abrams, who rebooted the voyages of the
starship Enterprise with 2009’s Star Trek and it's 2013 sequel Into Darkness, warped to another franchise galaxy to direct Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he needed to appoint a successor. When he ultimately chose Justin Lin, longtime Trek fans scratched their heads. Lin, they cried, was an action helmer, best known for the high-octane thrills he brought to four Fast & Furious movies. Sure, he could tell a well-paced story with an ensemble cast. But would he have what it takes to imbue the 50th anniversary adventure with Trek’s essential philosophical side? Could he offer food for thought as well as the eyes? Would Lin’s Star Trek go, well, beyond?

Great magazine

Has given me lots of new shows to look forward to and also a great new book to start reading. Can't wait for the next issue Reviewed March 20, 2014

Great value and great magazine

I liked the virtual version so much I have now taken out a subscription to the print version. I was reading the this version on 7 inch nexus which might be a bit small. Can't argue with the price though. Good value and a good read. Reviewed March 19, 2014

Great reading

Been reading paper edition of SFX since issue 34 for about 12 years then stopped, thought I'd give it another look and try the digi-mag version and it's great! Enjoying getting back into it after being 'out of touch' with the media of film, books and comics info for so long. Plenty of editorial not just huge pics like some other mags - well worth the money.
