Something to Do: Movies

The UK film The Lobster has been touring the film festival circuit, picking up 14 awards so far, and is now getting a limited theatrical release.

Something to Do: Movies, 11Oct13

Escape from Tomorrow looks to be truly surreal, a black and white excursion into the bizarre that I feel confident was NOT approved by Disney (in fact, they even say that). But even though I suspect it will be in limited release, I will absolutely have to see this one on any device I can […]

Something to Watch: DVDs

I missed Safety Not Guaranteed in the theaters, a quirky little might-be time travel film based on a real add published in a major magazine a few decades ago, so I am quite happy it is making it to DVD this week. I really don’t care if it turns out not to be Sci-Fi, the […]

Sci-Fi Radio Archives

Not long ago I mentioned the Robert A. Heinlein Radio Archives, and a bit before that it was the Ray Bradbury Radio Archive, both part of the new Radio Archives section of the Sci-Fi London web site. They have expanded their collection yet again, this time with classic radio plays from Issac Asimov and Frederik […]
