“Obi Wan . . . You ARE the Father!”

Recently a certain section of the hive mind collective unconscious of the internet noticed a striking similarity between two actors . . . Ewan McGregor in Revenge of the Sith (2005) and Mark Hamill in The Force Awakens (2015), and this has ignited creative theories that Obi Wan Kenobi could have been Luke’s REAL father!

The Last Witch Hunter: Good Speculative Fiction Fun

The Last Witch Hunter opened last week to mixed reactions. The critical reviews were terrible. In many media outlets the film critics seem to have a contest about who could make the smarmiest comments about the film and its fans. Yet the sci-fi, horror, and fantasy web sites and blog pages created by fans of the genre loved it.

Once again it leads into that interesting realm of a genre film that fans love and professional movie critics love to hate.

October 21st, 2015: The Importance of DeLoreans And Time Travel

Marty: “Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Doc, uh. . . . Are you telling me that you built a time machine . . . out of a DeLorean?”
Doc Brown: “Yes, the way I see it, if you’re gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?”

In the Back to the Future trilogy, the DeLorean time machine was Doctor Emmett Brown’s most successful invention. Comprised of a DeLorean DMC-12 sports car and a flux capacitor invented by Brown, the vehicle allowed Doc Brown, Marty McFly, and others to travel into the past and into the future. Today marks one of the most significant days in the trilogy—October 21, 2015—the day that Marty and Doc Brown arrive in the future. In order to celebrate this occasion, we will take a look at the machine that made it all possible. No—not the flux capacitor, but the iconic DeLorean automobile.
