What sci fi's have you seen recently? I was surprised by Oblivion. Was pretty solid actually.

I quite like 50s sci fi. Mostly for camp value but also because i have always had a soft spot for them. They inspired the italians to replicate them a decade later with disastrous results. I saw Wild, Wild Planet (1965) the other day. Pretty funny actually.

It feels like I haven't seen any sci-fi for ages, but I'll be participating in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy Challenge next month.

I may be sexist but you cannot have a woman as Dr Who, they will be making them Prime Minister next, and that would really be hit and miss! ;)

Thanks for bumping this.

Anybody seen Annihilation yet? I'll probably go this week, it won't last that long in the cinema. Very mixed feelings about Garland's work so far as writer, and I didn't love his first directorial effort as much as most people did, so a bit apprehensive. But any SF film that isn't all-action I'll usually try to see in the cinema if possible.
Here's to the fools who dream.

Saw it over the weekend, and it’s definitely worth checking out. I don’t know if I’d go all the way to calling it “great” but it’s very interesting from a purely conceptual standpoint, is largely visually interesting, and has solid acting all around. I think it’d be right up your alley, but just keep your expectations in check for sure. And yeah, wanting to support not only original, adult oriented sci-fi films but also films with predominantly female casts (especially mainstream genre films) is as good as reason to support it as any.

it's going straight to Netflix here which is quite annoying as sounds like a good one for cinema. The new Duncan Jones one Mute has done the same. Guess this is becoming the new normal for non-franchise stuff.

Delta was quite good, about time for me to see another of his films. Looks like it might be hard to get hold of though.

Very cool to hear about the new Duncan Jones also, glad I stopped by tonight.

ICM?

If anyone also always wanted to listen to Orson's pre-Kane works but couldn't find a list to concentrate on, other than just his all known War of the Worlds, here's a list of retrohugo nominees in the category that usually goes to various movies:
Around the World in Eighty Days, A Christmas Carol, Dracula, Donovan's Brain
(War is the only one that won one of those)
3 of those are pretty tired stories but at least the last one would be a fresh listen

they're on youtube
