METROPOLIS

METROPOLIS - The revolutionary silent film, released in the Weimar era of 1927, represents a beautiful Utopian world above a bleak underworld populated by mistreated workers. Directed by Fritz Lang, the film is highly regarded as a pioneer of the genre. Its influence has left an indelible mark on popular culture-- Madonna, Queen, Haddaway, Janelle MonĂ¡e, Lady Gaga--that continues to this day and on into the future. A bleak future, such as the one depicted in Metropolis? Only time will tell.

HORROR 2016

HORROR 2016 - It’s too soon to tell yet, however the year 2016 shows promise for horror films. Still, it’s irritating that Hollywood recycles the same titles, over and over again. Here’s my short list of films (possibly) worth watching.

KEPPLER MEGASTRUCTURE DISCOVERY?

KEPPLER MEGASTRUCTURE DISCOVERY? - Kepler Telescope has identified curious dips in light in a distant star under observation. It was speculated to be an alien megastructure, but the story gets stranger still. Old images dating back to the 1890s show it was once noticeably brighter than it is today. This makes the theory of comet storms unlikely due to the steady predictable pattern. A theory surfaced about a partially collapsed megastructure constructed by a very advanced civilization. A Dyson Sphere, a hypothetical megastructure, is a solar collector which encompasses a star to harness its power. Such ideas are the stuff of science fiction legend. An energy hungry alien society harnessing star power to fuel its long-term survival. Every great story begins with ‘what if?’ … could humans have a distant alien neighbor in our cosmic neighborhood? I have no idea.
