Phase IV: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

2018-04-16T14:00:36+00:00

As with many films on this list I first discovered this movie watching TV late at night. I suppose it will become a running theme in this segment, insomnia and UHF leading to some pretty strange post-midnight viewings. And perhaps it is the delirium of half-sleep that makes a [...]

The Black Hole: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

2018-04-16T13:00:52+00:00

I’ll say right off the bat that this is not exactly a classic. There are plot holes and stiff dialogue and the science definitely leans more towards fiction than fact. And there are some questionable robot designs. Despite that I recommend this film. It is a flawed gem. At [...]

2018-04-16T12:00:13+00:00

Le voyage dans la lune or A Trip to the Moon is a 1902 silent movie by Georges Méliès. It is considered the first science fiction film. It is also the first of several silent films on this list. Silent films can be problematic when I recommend them to [...]

I Remember Magic

2018-04-13T15:22:46+00:00

I am driving home from work in the rain. The traffic is heavy and I am upset. Not at anything in particular, just a strange combination of angry-sad, non-focused malaise. I have a feeling of something wrong, there is something missing. And the rain is coming down and I can’t [...]

Larks’ Tongues In Aspic: King Crimson: Difficult Beauty II

2018-04-12T18:39:18+00:00

King Crimson is probably the band that is most evocative of Progressive Rock. That is to say they have been and continue to be unapologetic prog. There was no decent into pop singles in the 80s, there was no reworking of old material with an orchestra, neither was there [...]

Do you think King Kong smiles? King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962): Kong Hits III

2018-04-07T12:01:59+00:00

This is one of the more…let’s go with interesting…entries in this project. King Kong vs. Godzilla is a crossover, a comedy, and a curiosity. And it is something to behold that’s for sure. It began life as a sequel to the original film called King Kong Meets Frankenstein. The [...]
