Aeon Flux (2005) -Karyn Kusama

Producer Gale Anne Hurd’s film, Aeon Flux, is the next stop in the Sci-Fi Chronicles book. Starring Charlize Theron, Sophie Okonedo, and Frances McDormand, the movie is an adaptation of the MTV animated series. The film has a lot going for it, fantastic cast, (Theron carries the film easily, and looks amazing kicking ass), wonderful…

Astro Boy (2009) – David Bowers

  The Sci-Fi Chronicles book has been a lot of fun so far, and it’s also introduced me to¬†a lot of things I was aware of, but had never seen. Astro Boy is a prime example, I have been aware of Osamu Tezuka’s manga for a long time, I’ve always recognized the character, but never…

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) – George Miller

The first title, Metropolis (such a gorgeous film), and almost all of its recommendations, I have reviewed previously for the blog, so the one¬†recommendation left…

Prometheus (2012) – Some Thoughts and Questions…

Is Prometheus a perfect movie? Far from, many of the secondary characters and even some of the leads are interchangeable. But it’s…

Prometheus – The Embargo

Here we are, just over a week away from the Canadian release date for Ridley Scott’s return to science fiction – Promethues. To say I’m excited is a understatment. I am very eagerly awaiting the arrival of next Friday night, amidst all the other things both Sue and I have on the go, interviews, covering…

Ridley Scott’s Returns To Sci-Fi

Yes, I watched the leaked trailer for Prometheus. It’s Ridley Scott! It’s Alien (kind of – from what I hear, though I am trying to keep my spoiler intake on this one to a bare minimum)! Like other sci-fi fans, I am looking forward to Ridley Scott’s return to the genre, he made two films…
