When I discuss my writing, I speak about the writings of Orwell, specifically his novel 1984. I’ve always been partial to dreary texts coated with misery. I’ve always enjoyed the non-ending, or the lack of a well-rounded and/or happy ending. I’ve always yearned for texts to treat me like an adult and allow me to […]

It has been a long week. After the disappointment that was Ghost in the Shell, I had to perk myself up with a classic—The Running Man. Directed by Paul Michael Glaser, The Running Man rounds off my reviews for previous sports-themed cyberpunk films (Rollerball and Death Race 2000). Ostensibly, it doesn’t appear too cyberpunky, but […]

It is officially Ghost in the Shell month, and though this short trailer has been out for a little while, I thought that it would be prudent to perhaps shine a bit of a light on the GITSchannel’s  VR diver depicting the cobbling of the Major Motoko Kusanagi.

Rollerball is one of those special films that needs no introduction. The music. The violence. The macabre and miserable atmosphere. Unlike Death Race 2000, Rollerball contains an ethereality that permeates every second of the viewers’ film watching experience; but akin to Death Race 2000 and SF of the seventies, Rollerball continues this theme of American […]

Though the late seventies is famously known for producing Star Wars IV: A New Hope, earlier SF films in the decade were often dark, grisly and grim stories that were partly inspired by the current political scene. Distrust. Anger. A loss of hope. These concepts were all represented by films such as Logan’s Run, A […]

As is the norm these days, the recent trailer for the upcoming live action take on Ghost in the Shell garnered both the usual round of cautious optimism and outright distaste. Put me in the camp of the former; I’m a sucker for anything where Scarlett Johansson plays something less than human. But while I’m happy […]

I was excited for this one. Very excited. And it’s hard to not be excited when peering into the beautiful cover of the second issue of L0WL1F3, with Luke Molver’s stunning artwork luring the reader in, hook, line, and sinker. A stunning depiction of a digitized native woman embedded with cords, jacks, and matrices. It […]
