Ahh Arnold, corny and campy 80's action movies aren't quite the same without you or Sly or even Dolph hanging around and this one about a violent game show which puts prisoners through a gauntlet …

80's action movie with Arnie spewing more Bond one liners then you can count as he is put on a sadistic gameshow to fight for his life in a dystopion future. Entertaining for sure with it's warning about …

A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller
When reading this book one must remember that some of it was first published in 1955 only ten years after Hiroshima.  It was only two years since the Korean war and the Rosenbergs had just been executed …

Much like the other Schwarzenegger movie Commando (1985), this is a fine example of a "feel good" action movie. If you're having a bad day, this movie will cheer you up. The 80's interpretation of the …

The Handmaid's Tale
One of the reasons I like dystopian novels. She definitely makes you think about things well telling a well-drawn tale.

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
One of the first HG Wells books I read, then I went out and bought more. Not modern, but definitely intriguing.

Reread this when my kids had to read it in school and remember why I liked it so much.

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
H. G. Wells was both an incredibly gifted science visionary as well as an intelligent social commentator. Those two skills are combined in this book, which soundly set the stage for the use of time travel …

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
I really want to read more Wells. A friend once told me thinking of a future that is so vastly different from ours is terrifying.

This is far from my favorite dystopian novel but it does have a lot of great elements in it.

A Canticle for Leibowitz by Walter Miller
"Canticle" is considered by many to the the ultimate science fiction work of all time. Count me as one of the many.

Not much like the Stephen King story that inspired it, but a great 80s Arnold film...

Brave New World
It is undeniably prophetic how closely Huxley comes to extrapolating trends that reach into today's post-modern world.

The Handmaid's Tale
This is another of those books that I read because a friend told me to. I didn't really look at the description, just opened it and started reading. Needless to say, I spent the first quarter of it a …

Cassia's entire world is ordered and precise: everyone is guided and instructed by the Society so that they may live a perfect, happy, and healthy life, and no one has ever questioned the Society's …

Brave New World
Plausible, creepily plausible. But I buy most of Huxley's philosophy wholesale.

The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
A haunting tale of past, present and future. Who will forget the Eloi/Morlocks and the far-future cancer-beast on the shores of humanity's sunset?

Frightening, sickening, and yet ever-so-real. It's like our world right now! ACK!

Brave New World
   One of the noticeable things about this novel at its conclusion is that you don't really find any fully likable characters. While most novels have a clear and defined party you should …

I've never been much for Sci-Fi, but this is one of the few books I have read more than once. So entertaining with a draw for everyone.
