My top ten (or so) favorite Science Fiction movies of all time

I’ve deliberately made this list controversial, in the hopes you wonderful readers will jog my memory with your own favorites and remind me of movies I have forgotten about. Of course, this is a list of my favorite movies, ergo, television shows like The Twilight Zone (which is some of the best Sci-Fi in existence) […]

The best of the best – Robot Stories

Inspired by George, over at “George Watches Things”, I am going to embark on a series of “best of” lists.  But I’m going to do genres, for a couple of reasons. First of all, George does a great and interesting set of decade lists already, and secondly, I cannot always compare movies from two different […]

The Tree of Life

This is the movie that broke the camel’s back, to mangle the metaphor [BTW, I won't be giving it a thorough review here, plenty has been written already - for my opinion of the movie, read on]. I dislike DVDs, generally. Oh, they were great in 1990. They were okay in 2000. But this is […]

Stranded

Stranded is an awesome film. If more movies were like this, I might actually enjoy more movies than I do. And God bless Netflix streaming – it’s better than sliced bread. After almost being turned off from the movie by the nearly unanimous poor reviews, I luckily remembered that most Netflix reviewers are (apparently) 12 […]

Star Warts Episode II: Any Hope Left?

Just watched a documentary called The People vs. George Lucas on Netflix which really covers all the main points of a previous post I wrote (and hits several other points as well, including fan edit films and some Indiana Jones trivia to boot). The film really offered a vent for all the things that George […]

You’re not a bunch of idiots – now go watch Lunopolis immediately!

I’m going to take a break from ranting about genres to write about a film called Lunopolis. I had never heard of it before seeing it listed on Netflix. You probably haven’t either, and this is a real shame. The acting is not superb, but it isn’t bad enough to distract measurably from the plot. […]

You’re all a bunch of idiots – Part I

Ok, rant time! Let’s talk about genres today, because some of you are getting things so mixed up if I don’t straighten you out now, we’ll never get things back where they belong. And, actually, none of you are idiots. I’m preaching to the choir here. The idiots aren’t reading this. But if you know […]
