The Shockwave Rider by John Brunner
   If there is one 20th century science fiction novel everyone should read it is The Shockwave Rider.      I violated that rule for years.  Two other books by Brunner, …

In the Blood
Sullivan's sci-fi murder mystery is a delight. I look forward to his next novel. There are four main plots. Sam Dane, a famed Earth crime solver, is summoned to the planet Procrustes to help the planets' …

REPO MEN (2010)
** out of ****     "Repo Men" is a movie that treats gore like an everyday necessity. The film is a celebration of blood, organs, and repossession involving both; which makes it a …

(special thanks to the author for providing me with a review copy!)         I imagine being a cop is one of the hardest, most thankless jobs in the world. You're stuck …

REPO MEN (2010)
When it comes to blood and guts I have a relatively high tolerance level. I can handle quite a bit before I start to squirm in my seat, but Repo Men hits that tolerance level within the first five minutes …

The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy
"I don't read SF...but I like the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy"      That was what a friend once told me. She did not read SF or fantasy, although she did like what …

I loved Adams' metaphor about Britain's colonial children, comparing the national personalities of Canada, the US and Australia. Spot on.

Worst movie ever. Nicholas cage has successfully ruined his career with horrible sci-fi nonsense. How does a movie like this get produced?

REPO MEN (2010)
This film really didn't work for me. The script lacks any originality and takes a concept that was done to death in far better films and novels and tries to add in a bit of action and social commentary. …

Douglas Adams
No one quite like him. Satire with just enough science to intrigue, just enough fantasy to confuse, just enough logic to discombobulate completely, and just enough fun to... well, you get the picture.

Douglas Adams
Again, not true "Science Fiction" as much as satire. If this poll were on the merits of satire, Adams would get a +4.

I read this back in 1994 during a period where my wife and I would each read a book out of the other's library. It's basically a travel book written by that master of modern British understatement, …

The Time Traveler's Wife
Pretty well structured film about love, time travel, romance and the theme of commitment. This is more a story about relationships, trust and faith in each other; isn't exactly a sci-fi film, …

REPO MEN (2010)
REPO MEN may be worthy of a bit of interest in the novel form 'The Repossession Mambo' by Eric Garcia (who co-wrote the script with Garrett Lerner), but as a film it is simply silly. After about fifteen …

Post Apacolyptic future that is violent, bleak and hopeless. The Judges must keep order in this satirical action comic.
