AMAZON’S NIGHT SKY—REVIEW

Back in May a new SF series called Night Sky premiered, with terrific actors Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons. But Amazon nixed a second season. Have you seen it? Can you explain why Amazon killed it? I can’t.

NEW SF STREAMING MOVIE — NOVA

A new movie streams on Sunday Sept. 20; it’s about a Mars mission full of human-android conflict? There are no startling revelations or new thoughts, but it’s a fairly pleasant way to pass an evening.

REVIEW – SAMARITAN (minor spoilers)

Steve’s been really taken by two new things: the new Stallone movie Samaritan, and the new Amazon series The Man Who Fell to Earth, with Chiwetel Ejiofor. You may not agree, but you have to watch them before you’re entitled to my… er, your opinion.

Short SF Film: Straw Man | Dust

REVIEW: JAMIE FOXX in “DAY SHIFT” (Minor spoilers)

Netflix has released a new vampire movie starriing multiple-award winner Jamie Foxx as a vamp hunter. While it breaks no new ground, it has a great bit part by Snoop Dogg as a “cowboy” vamp hunter. Fairly gory, not exactly family fare, but watchable. Also, check out TV series “Moonhaven” and upcoming movie “Slumberland.”

Short SF Film: Sunbelly | Dust

A very unusual animation style brings you the story of a routine scouting of a distant planet that uncovers a lost civilization. Where the explorers discover the long forgotten origins of their mission.

Short SF Film: Antumbra | From DUST

Major Remy Barnes is the first astronaut to make contact with extraterrestrials on board of an unidentified flying object in orbit around earth.
(I’d be a lot happier with the ending of this short film if it had been produced during the previous administration.)
