This time around, time loops–the story trope featuring a repeat of time usually offering the protagonist an opportunity to fix the recent past–are going to be coming at you […]

It’s one of our favorite science fiction tropes–the time loop–filmed in one of our favorite locations, Squamish, B.C.  We can’t get enough of time loops, whether we’re watching Groundhog Day, Source Code, Final Destination, TiMER, Haunter, Looper, or ARQ, or television shows Tru Calling or Early Edition, or episodes from Haven, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eureka, The X-Files, Star Trek, or Xena–Warrior […]

Heinlein’s short story “All You Zombies.”  Bringing some genre street cred to this independent film is Gattaca’s Ethan Hawke as the lead.  Hawke is a time travel agent in the business of […]

Review by C.J. Bunce If you don’t include fantasy films, it’s not easy to come up with many pure science fiction genre romantic comedies.  Fantasy genre romantic comedies are plentiful, with great movies like Princess Bride, Splash, Enchanted, and Ella Enchanted fitting the bill.  There are also some good science fiction romances out there, the best being Somewhere […]

What?  They still make slot cars? Back in the 1970s we were fans of the Smokey and the Bandit Trans Am and highway patrol cars in our slot car race sets.  Auto World now has plenty of great movie and TV tie-ins in their slot car sets.  They even offer a Smokey and the Bandit set: Auto […]

Review by Elizabeth C. Bunce It’s no secret I’m a big fan of ghost stories, and I’ve lamented before how hard they are to find among all the slasher horror gore fest flicks that pass for scary fare these days.  So I’m always excited to stumble across a new one on film.  One such recent discovery is Vincenzo […]
