    I am emotionally compromised.

    Did someone say "new Douglas Adams adaptation"? No, I'm not crying. I'm completely over Adams' death at the far-too-young age of 49. I'M FINE.

  6. Review: Run, Don’t Walk, to See Snowpiercer, The Best Sci-Fi Film of the Decade So Far

    CHRIS EVANS SLIPS ON A FISH.

    Readers, I see a lot of movies. Most of them are good. Some are great. A small number I love. And every once in a while I see a movie that leaves me vibrating with energy as I leave the theater, knowing that what I just saw will stick with me probably for the rest of my life, or at least until the inevitable robot overlords come and conquer the planet. Snowpiercer is one of those. [Spoiler-free review]

  8. Sigourney Weaver On The Legacy of Alien And The Possibility Of A Fifth Movie

    Spaaaaaaaaaaace

    When my brother was fourteen or so, I made him watch Alien with me. "This movie's important," I said. "Sci-fi and horror movies are what they are now because of this." He didn't dig it at first. The expository pacing did not pair well with the restlessness of puberty. The comment "this is boring" was muttered more than once -- right up until something horrible burst out of Kane's chest. He was rapt after that. The Alien franchise is something special, and it's impossible to imagine it without its leading lady, Sigourney Weaver. Recently, Weaver took part in a Q&A hosted by the Hero Complex Film Festival, in which she discussed the legacy of the series, the experience of playing Ellen Ripley, and her thoughts on a fifth Alien film. We've got the highlights below.

  9. Why You Should Watch Defiance, The Heir to Battlestar Galactica

    Essay

    June 19 marks the return of Defiance, the Syfy drama about a future Earth in which humans and various races of alien must cohabitate. In spite of being a moderate ratings success in its first season, Defiance has failed to garner the kind of critical attention it deserves. By which I mean: The people I love who love sci-fi still aren’t watching this show, and it makes me sad. It’s especially heartbreaking to see the Warehouse 13 fandom donning black armbands in preparation for the last episode and wanting to shout “Guys! There’s a place for you! And HG Wells is there and everything!” Since you have just enough time to catch up on season one, I’m here to tell you why Defiance is the new face of smart sci-fi. Just imagine I’ve got you cornered in a bar and am in that specific stage of drunk where you just want to explain how great something is.
