Con 70 – A Retro Sci-Fi Adventure is an independently run, one-of-a-kind, non-profit science fiction convention that will be held on March 7-9, (Labour Day long weekend) 2015 in Melbourne, Australia. The aim of the convention is to provide an opportunity for fans to come together and relive the joys of 1970s science fiction movies and TV shows over a three day long weekend.
Our belief is that Con 70 is the first convention of its type in Australia (maybe even globally) so it will be a very special and unique event. We’ll also be keen to prove that the 1970s are still alive in the minds of many – especially when we quote the classic Con 70 motto “if it’s not retro, it’s no go.”
Price: $28.20 for a single day adult ticket ($32 if you don’t book online). $48.71 for a 3 day pass ($57 if you don’t book online). Check their website for the special ticket details.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter Developer: Danger Close Publisher: EA Available on: PS3, Xbox 360, PC Reviewed on: Xbox 360 & PC
Well here it is folks, EA’s latest multi-million dollar ‘hey we’re cool like COD’ shooter. Yes EA has made it incredibly easy to be cynical about their big releases what with their corporate attitude & business practices both being what they are, but despite all that is Medal of Honor: Warfighter worth a look?

Judge Dredd is without a doubt a classic comic book bad-arse. He judges criminals, never shows his face and has an insane gun.
That got me thinking, where he might rank in the all-time list of comic book bad-arsery. So, for your chance to WIN simply tell us: “Who you think the most ‘bad-arse’ comic book character is and why?”
Do that in the comments below or on Twitter directed at @SpaceMeatAU and you could find yourself winning one of five double passes to DREDD in 3D.
Dredd, a futuristic cop combines the power of judge, jury and executioner in Mega City One, a massive city that stretches down the entire East coast of America. The endlessly inventive minds of writer Alex Garland and director Pete Travis bring DREDD (played by Karl Urban) to life in a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner’s and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip. In Cinemas October 25.

Local Melbournian film-makers Damien E. Lipp and Dale Alexander are working on their début feature, the documentary style horror film, ‘Beckoning the Butcher’.
The film is currently in the funding stage, up now on the crowd funding site Indie Go Go with 10 days to go and is a great opportunity for film and horror fans to support the local scene.
Check out the teaser below and help these young film-makers reach their goal!
Chris Shaw was an up and coming internet sensation. In his videos he performed rituals he found on the web, testing their legitimacy in summoning spirits. His last video never got to be broadcast – until now.
Chris films everything as he, his girlfriend Tara and their friends Brent, Lorraine and Nicole travel to Brent’s holiday house nestled in the vast, isolated plains of rural Victoria. Once they arrive they prepare and perform the latest ritual Beckoning the Butcher, a mysterious invocation Chris found online, designed to entice a paranormal entity into this world.
All who took part in the ritual that night went missing without a trace. The only clue for investigators was the found footage contained on Chris’s camera. Unfortunately for all involved, the footage itself seemed to pose more questions than to provide answers.
Using interviews from family members, detectives and psychics, along with Chris’s footage, this film aims to piece together the events of that fateful night and determine how the players vanished.
