    Stardust is on Netflix. It was less interesting and surprising than I would expect from an adapted Neil Gaiman story, but I enjoyed it as a bit of fairytale satire. The leads are all good,...

    I'm sad to say that I didn't really like Echopraxia. It is poorly motivated and wanting for better scenarios, characterization, and plot. Too much of it is an addendum/rejoinder of B-side elements...

    I read Blindsight, by Peter Watts, for the 5th time, in anticipation of the sequel coming out next week. It can't be as gripping as the first read of course, but I still love this book. The writing...

    I just saw Guardians of the Galaxy. It was ok. Watchable, moderately fun, but not very interesting. The trailers turned me off and the film lives up to that level of corny and dumb material. I...

    Since Robin Williams passed, I watched The Fisher King on Netflix. The script is lousy, Jeff Bridges is unconvincing, and Terry Gilliam reuses all his favorite directorial tricks to little effect. ...

    I've watched Smilla's Sense of Snow three or four times since its late 90's release. An understated murder mystery thriller with overtones of X-files and quietly developing intrigue. Good casting...
