2001: A Space Odyssey: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|0 Comments

So what is there left to say about 2001: A Space Odyssey that has not been said already? There have been books and documentaries, scholarly papers and entire websites devoted to deconstructing and analyzing this film’s themes and symbolism and importance to cinema. It is constantly considered one of, if not the, greatest science fiction films of all time. [...]

Phase IV: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|0 Comments

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 film about intelligent ants in the desert seem so appealing. [...]

The Black Hole: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|0 Comments

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 the time it was rather groundbreaking in the special effects [...]

Le voyage dans la lune: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|0 Comments

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 people. The narrative structure, the acting styles, the visual ques [...]

I Remember Magic

By | April 13th, 2018|0 Comments

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 see and that jackass in the Audi just cut me [...]

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

By | April 12th, 2018|0 Comments

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 a classic reunion tour for an arbitrary anniversary. Instead King [...]

The Philosopher’s Song: G’Day Bruce: The Big Ideas (Reboot)

By | April 9th, 2018|0 Comments

So about a year ago - or was it two? (hard to say really, time is so difficult to grasp and there is no way pinning down a definitive date on anything...wait, I looked at the last post for this category...yeah, two years ago. Huh, time is easier to grasp that I thought). Anyway, two years ago I began a [...]
