War of the Worlds: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 20th, 2018|99 Films, Features|

The 1953 film War of the Worlds, produced by George Pal and directed by Byron Haskin, is probably the most recognized adaptation of H.G. Wells’ 1898 novel and is considered to be a classic in the genre. I consider it the best 1950s B-movie ever made. There have been many adaptations of War of the Worlds over the years. [...]

The Greatest Superhero Of All: Bicycle Repair Man!

By | April 19th, 2018|Features, Thoughts & Notions|

With the release of Action Comics #1000 and the 80th anniversary of Superman I thought it was high time to revisit the greatest superhero of all…Bicycle Repairman! In a world full of Supermen it is important to know that the real superpower is the ability to fix a two wheeled, manually powered mode of [...]

Metropolis: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|99 Films, Tachyon Emissions|

Metropolis is the second of the silent films on this list and considered the first great science fiction film. I will go further than that - it is one of the greatest films of all time. Period. This is not hyperbole; this film is brilliant. It is beautiful and nightmarish and at times hallucinogenic. [...]

2001: A Space Odyssey: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|99 Films, Tachyon Emissions|

So what is there left to say about 2001: A Space Odyssey that has not been said already? There have been books and documentaries, scholarly papers and entire websites devoted to deconstructing and analyzing this film’s themes and symbolism and importance to cinema. It is constantly considered one of, if not the, greatest science [...]

Phase IV: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|99 Films, Features|

As with many films on this list I first discovered this movie watching TV late at night. I suppose it will become a running theme in this segment, insomnia and UHF leading to some pretty strange post-midnight viewings. And perhaps it is the delirium of half-sleep that makes a film about intelligent ants in [...]

The Black Hole: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|99 Films|

I’ll say right off the bat that this is not exactly a classic. There are plot holes and stiff dialogue and the science definitely leans more towards fiction than fact. And there are some questionable robot designs. Despite that I recommend this film. It is a flawed gem. At the time it was rather [...]

Le voyage dans la lune: 99 Science Fiction Films You Must See

By | April 16th, 2018|99 Films|

Le voyage dans la lune or A Trip to the Moon is a 1902 silent movie by Georges Méliès. It is considered the first science fiction film. It is also the first of several silent films on this list. Silent films can be problematic when I recommend them to people. The narrative structure, the [...]
