Ghost in the Shell Manga Released Digitally

Ghost in the Shell Manga is how that whole universe started, when Masamune Shirow’s original graphic novel came out. But until this month, it has never been released digitally. Now it has, with the folks at Kodansha Comics offering up Ghost in the Shell in English digital format for the first time. While you can […]

Blade Runner 2049 Trailer

I am so ready for this film, having waited what seems like a couple of decades for Blade Runner 2049. Based on a story by Philip K. Dick, if it is even half as good as the original film, it will be amazing.

Sense8 Christmas Special trailer

Netflix is posting a 2 hour Sense8 Christmas Special which will begin airing on December 23rd, J. Michael Straczynski’s story of another kind of telepathic evolution. I was also happy to hear the story will continue May 5th, 2017, with 10 new episodes. Since the trailer was posted I wanted to include it here as […]

Something to Watch: Discs

James Patterson’s bestselling YA book series Maximum Ride made the transition to movie format, but it didn’t play anywhere near me; now I get a chance to see it as they release it to DVD. The animated film Storks may be the best bet this time around, good silly fun from the studio that did […]

Something to Do: Movies

This weekend we finally get to hit the theater for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the next generation story of the Harry Potter series, and yes, that does mean its by J. K. Rowling. If you need more information than that, you are obviously just visiting this planet, and didn’t do your research […]

Happy Birthday Carl Sagan!

Today would have been Carl Sagan’s 82nd birthday, a man who was one of my primary inspirations (along with Albert Einstein, Robert A Heinlein, and Nikola Tesla). He brought an appreciation of astronomy and the cosmos to the masses, he co-founded the Planetary Society, and he wrote some amazing books and articles. Want to put […]

Something to Do: Movies

The film worth checking out this Friday is Arrival, told from the viewpoint of the linguist who is recruited by the military to assist in translating the aliens communications. I will be in the theater for this one! As far as I know this may be the first ever Ted Chiang story to be turned […]

Something to Do: Movies

The only genre piece I could find this week is the fantasy Inferno, based on the Dan Brown book. But there are a lot of great films coming out this season, some very soon indeed. I think this weekend would be a good time to catch up on some binge streaming while I wait for […]

Something to Stream: Ronja the Robber’s Daughter

Goro Miyazaki created an Anime version of Astrid Lindgren’s fantasy novel Ronja the Robber’s Daughter, and Amazon has picked it up for their Amazon Prime streaming service. Gillian Anderson will be narrating the story for them, and as a fan of all things Studio Ghibli I am looking forward to watching it. My only question […]

Dirk Gently on BBC America

I loved the UK version of Dirk Gently back in 2012, and now it looks like we have another winning version. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency comes to BBC America beginning Saturday the 22nd of this month, and it looks hysterical. The cast includes Elijah Wood, who brings the quirkiness to his character that a […]
