Dragon Con Count Down May 11, 2005Posted by Liz in : General, Sci-Fi , comments closed
Yes, it is true…I have become a Sci-Fi Nerd! Anne McCaffery is going to be there again this year. I am looking forward to meeting her again, and hoping for another reading! Joss Whedon is going to be there as well, which is cool! This year I am going all out and dressing up too, and I am going to find a group of Klingons to have a drink or two with!!!
Anyways, I just thought I would let all of you know there is 114 days left to buy your tickets (Next deadline is $60 before 5/13/05). Really you should have bought them back in Feb. to get the best price like we did, but you can still get them cheaper now than you will be able to at the door. Ben, Watson, Dee, and I are all going and we would love for you all to join us in the Dragon Con festivities!!!
Sci-Fi Trashes LeGuin’s Earthsea December 15, 2004Posted by Ben in : Sci-Fi , comments closed
I had hoped to write a simple review here detailing all that I feel is wrong with it, but my emotions are running too high, so the review would be disjointed. All I can say is that Lieberman has completely trashed a world that Ms. LeGuin carefully crafted—all seemingly in an effort to make the story more of a “stock” fantasy story, of which Ms. LeGuin’s world is not.
Perhaps after I’ve had time to think about this and to watch the mini-series again will my emotions settle down enough to write a detailed review, highlighting all the changes and gross additions to the storyline.
Until then, Ms. LeGuin herself has a short statement regarding her input, or lack thereof, in the making of the film. This statement was made before Sci-Fi aired them this week. I would be interested in hearing more thoughts from her and whether or not she watched the mini-series.
Enterprise Saves Itself October 19, 2004Posted by Ben in : Sci-Fi , comments closed
Well, they’ve finally done it. After three seasons of alluding to a temporal cold war that had fans reeling and refusing to watch the show, the writers of Star Trek: Enterprise, have finally brought an end to the underlying storyline that threatened to destroy the Star Trek universe timeline.
I have a DVR, so I didn’t watch the “Storm Front” conclusion until last night, and I can say that, even as an avid viewer of the show, I’m glad the storyline is gone. Now, Star Trek fans shouldn’t have a reason to complain about the timeline, and it appears that they’ve got some good writers this season that will abandon the full-season story arc and return to the small 3 and 4 episode mini-arcs that were popular with ST:TNG.
