AVP: Alien vs. Predator (2004) – Paul W.S. Anderson

Sure, Anderson does a fairly decent job on my guilty pleasure films, the Resident Evil series, not to mention Event Horizon, but he and those interfering types at 20th Century Fox screwed over what should have been a sure thing, and my next stop in the Sci-Fi Chronicles book… Alien Vs. Predator. I saw this…

Dark Matter S01E01 – Pilot

  Two of the driving minds behind the Stargate television series, Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, and Lost Girl executive producer Jay Firestone unveil their latest project on Space this evening. They show itself is wrapped in a mystery, with only the barest of plot details being revealed. And the show reflects that as well,…

Cibola Burn (2014) – James S.A. Corey

  June 2015 is too far away, and with a working title of Nemesis Games you know something seriously cool is going to be happening in it. I read them all too fast. Book Four of the Expanse series, Cibola Burn, is done. And now, I’ll be climbing the walls, waiting impatiently for the fifth gargantuan…

Leviathan Wakes (2011) – James S.A. Corey

I love a good science fiction movie or television series, but oft-times I have a hard time digging into science fiction books, the exception being Arthur C. Clarke, Star Wars and Star Trek novels with occasional deviance into other titles if they catch my attention. I’ll read all manner of books, they just have to hold my…

Aliens (1986) – James Cameron

This time it’s war, as we return to the universe created in the original Ridley Scott sci-fi flick. James Cameron takes over as storyteller and director in this entry in the 101 Sci-Fi Movies list. Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is still in hyper-sleep, just as we left her at the end of the first film, but…

Alien (1979) – Ridley Scott

I love this movie, and I’m so glad the 101 Sci-Fi Movies list brought it to me! Any excuse to throw this on the blu-ray is a good one, so I was quite happy to spend some time with the ill-fated crew of the Nostromo again. Alien is essentially a haunted-house story, and nothing really scary…

Planet of the Vampires (1965)

  14 years before the Nostromo took flight to terror in Alien in 1979, the Argos and it’s sister ship the Galliot were heading to a mysterious planet they call Aura, investigating a signal that has been transmitting for two years (I don’t know if that means they have FTL travel but I guess for…

Prometheus (2012) – Some Thoughts and Questions…

Prometheus is a film with some big ideas. This is a film I’ve been looking forward to since I learned Sir Ridley was returning to the universe that he helped create and establish. Is Prometheus a perfect movie? Far from, many of the secondary characters and even some of the leads are interchangeable. But it’s…

Ridley Scott – My Top 10

I am so pumped for Prometheus, but we know that. So, while I wait very impatiently for June 8 to return to The Company, Lv-426 and learn the secrets of The Engineers I thought it would be very interesting to run down my list of favorite films by Sir Ridley. While some people may not…
