Sean Connery's facial features have always seemed disproportionate to me, the various parts not working together harmoniously. Perhaps this is due to the way he mugs a reaction to something in the fil ...

I was pleased to find Riders to the Stars in All Sci-Fi's movie viewing room, and had the pleasure of re-watching it after many years. The movie seems to be all but forgotten, but is one of the best s ...

Sky Captain reminded me of a show I used to hear on radio, SKY KING. That was about an airplane pilot who had numerous adventures. It was complemented by Mark Trail, about a woodland adventurer who si ...

There have been sf films worthy of academy awards made, including what they like in Hollywood, a film being colossal. Walt Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was such a film. I don't know whether i ...
