Last week, we focused our attention on the upcoming DUNE adaptation and our expectations -- cautiously optimistic hopes, if you will -- along with a look at David Lynch's version from oh, so long ago. Will it live up to the hype? Because DUNE has been seen as one of *those* stories that's almost impossible to get right.This week, we broaden our sco…
 
Arthur P Jacobs, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Ridley Scott, David Lynch, the Sci Fi Channel ...and now Denis Villeneuve takes a crack at Arrakis.There's a lot of buzz about this movie, and there's a lot riding on its success. Not just the potential for part two, but also the impact that it may have on distribution models as we continue to crawl out of the…
 
Coming on the heels of our look back at Richard Donner's career, we thought we'd take a little more time to go in-depth with a discussion about one of the best movies of the 80s: THE GOONIES.Guest: Christopher HoffmannTip Jar: https://www.paypal.me/scifi4meSubscribeStar: http://www.subscribestar.com/scifi4meNewsletter: http://eepurl.com/gboU11http:…

Return with us to those thrilling days of yesteryear! Tonight we take a look -- or is it a listen? -- to a form of media that we don't think about all that often: the radio show. Superman, The Lone Ranger, The Green Hornet, War of the Worlds, the "Lights Out" series, the NPR adaptations of STAR WARS....All of those came before, and now we're seeing…
 
Recently, we've seen trailers for new shows that aren't....quite...new. Reboots and sequels for shows that were popular in the 80s. And they all had one thing in common: they sold toys.Is that the only way for a franchise to stay afloat? Merchandise?Tip Jar: https://www.paypal.me/scifi4meSubscribeStar: http://www.subscribestar.com/scifi4meNewslette…
 
There are a few of them out there. Those books, video games, the projects that never got finished. Some of them are "still in the works" we're told. Others, well, .... you know you're never getting that next "Ice and Fire" book, right?Two-Seventy-One Monday continues!Tip Jar: https://www.paypal.me/scifi4meSubscribeStar: http://www.subscribestar.com…
 
As it turns out, there are a lot more of these than we thought -- the musical episode. The one time a cast of characters break into song and dance in a show that otherwise plays things pretty straight.Is it time to retire this trope?And no, we're not singing...Tip Jar: https://www.paypal.me/scifi4meSubscribeStar: http://www.subscribestar.com/scifi4…
 
You know him for his classic American literary works -- OF MICE AND MEN, or maybe THE GRAPES OF WRATH. But did you know that early in his career, John Steinbeck took a turn at horror? And it's never been published. Now, a literature professor is urging the Steinbeck estate to publish the book -- a murder mystery that involves a werewolf.https://www…
 
Can music save your mortal soul? Does music soothe the savage beast? Is it likely the rhythm is gonna get you? Tonight, we take a look (or a listen?) and discuss how music can play a vital role in the effectiveness of some of our favorite genre movies and TV shows. Maybe even more than you realize.Tip Jar: https://www.paypal.me/scifi4meSubscribeSta…
 
As we reported recently, Andy Wier's new book, PROJECT HAIL MARY is out, so we thought we'd take a look at that category of science fiction that puts the emphasis on science. The hard stuff. The not-fantasy-stuff. No transporters. No lightsabers. No warp drive.Tip Jar: https://www.paypal.me/scifi4meSubscribeStar: http://www.subscribestar.com/scifi4…

With the release of the new MORTAL KOMBAT, we thought we'd take a moment to examine the evolution of the video game movie.

Last week, we took a look at the makings of a hero. What makes a person heroic? Is heroism more than just bravery?This week, we examine the corollary: what makes a good villain? Is it motivation? The result of an accident? Experiment? Genetics? Poor diet? And remember: sometimes the villain is the hero of his own story....Tip Jar: https://www.paypa…
 
There are heroes, and there are Heroes. Some protagonists are the archetype, the ones you know are the heroes of the story without any doubt. And then there are those unlikely heroes, the ones you don't expect. What do they have in common?

We all have a few. Those guilty (or not-so-guilty) pleasures. The movies and TV shows, books, comics, the things we like despite the fact that they're ... not great.

Over the course of a few episodes, we've discussed the idea of remakes and reboots, and most of the time we're pretty solidly against them.

We've talked about adaptations before, how tough it is to get it right. Some do better than others, and some material is just too much of a challenge to even make the attempt.
