Sci Fi/Fantasy DVD of the Week

Macross Plus (1994)

It’s 2040 A.D. On the planet Eden, a distant world colonized by humans, the Ministry of Defense is developing two new transforming combat aircraft. Piloting the one is Guld Bowman. Chosen to be the test pilot for the other is Isamu Dyson, a hotshot flyboy who was once Guld’s best friend. Complicating matters is the arrival of Myung Fang Lone, a music producer who is director of the latest tour by Sharon Apple, a computer-generated pop star. In the past, Myung dated both Isamu and Guld, and she is the cause of their current estrangement.

All six Star Wars films are going to be re-re-re-released – this time in 3-D. I suppose it’s just a matter of time before The Lord of the Rings is re-released in the same way.

Gloria Stuart Dies

Monday, September 27, 2010 16:17

Usually I like to stick to sci fi and fantasy for this blog, but one of my favorite films that doesn’t fall into those categories is Titanic. It’s a film that made so much money, won so many awards, and dominated popular culture in 1998 to such a degree, I think the overexposure led to a backlash, and the film no longer gets the credit it deserves. It’s an incredible piece of filmmaking, and part of the reason why is Gloria Stuart, who has died at 100 years old. No doubt she’s now in Titanic heaven.

The Middle-earth Foodie

Friday, September 24, 2010 9:00

My wife is from Oregon, so we visit the state as often as we can. (I think of it as a second home.) An acquaintance of mine there has been gathering “Middle-earth” recipes – tasty treats with a Middle-earth theme – for some time. Now someone else is making the recipes and posting them on a blog with photos (an essential element for any cookbook). Don’t they look yummy?

Thursday, September 16, 2010 9:00

This is a new weekly feature that I’ll do each Thursday, and the idea is that I will tell you a little about an obscure DVD (and sometimes Blu-ray) that sci fi and fantasy fans might enjoy.

Today’s pick: The Mysterious Cities of Gold.
