You may have to dig deep into the past to find a great one, but, over the decades, film makers have produced some pretty unforgettable dinosaur films you need to watc...

A writer, I am poor. This means I get my Science Fiction Movies free from the library, and Arrival is only a three day loan. No time to watch it twice, this movie requires another viewing, and a two d...

'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' is British Humor at its Driest

Rich Monetti
in Entertainment

I had long seen The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy in bookstores, but it seemed too long to read and the title too eclectic to classify as comedy or science fiction. 109 minutes of DVD I could handl...

David Bowie's 'The Man Who Fell to Earth'

Eddie Wong
in Culture

Let us consider the genre of classic rock-music movies. We had Magical Mystery Tour, featuring The Beatles. It was amusing in 1968, but it is an embarrassment by today's standards. Groundbreaking effects then, but Millennials don't have much patience for the limitations of the past.
