    Denis Villenueve to direct Dune

    Great pick! Recently saw him in The Domestics and was impressed.

    I think Cam Gigandet would make a good Feyd Rautha. Admittedly, he'll be 37 this year but has boyish good looks and is in top notch shape. Plus he's shown throughout his career he has decent range. Any takers?
  4. @WertheadHey Wert, 

    I know you've an interest in the Revelation Space universe and have a question for you.  I just read The Last Log of the Lachrimosa short story and am unsure of what Reynolds wants the reader to infer from it (if anything).  So obviously the entity in the cave on the world Holda has stumbled onto some Inhibitor machinery and seemingly has become one with it and disabled it (?).  I find this confusing, considering nothing in the RS universe can withstand the Inhibitors' tech. I also didn't really understand the significance of the narrator, Vidra, Lenka, and Teterov.   Can you break this down for me?  I just had a hard time taking the story at face value...

    Good luck on your Hugo nomination!! It is well deserved!!

    First Quarter 2019 Reading

    Finally giving Dan Simmons' Carrion Comfort a try after seeing it on so many to-read lists (I'm a big fan of his Hyperion/Endymion cantos). For those who have read it, I'm curious to know your thoughts.

    The books coming out in 2019

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned The Resurrection of Gurm (anonymous) yet! Highly anticipated scifi novel chronicling the resurrection and trial of a modern day salesman, G. Gurm, who must answer for his highly controversial bait and switch business tactics, in the year 2029. As restitution for his offenses, Gurm's disgruntled customers seek to send him into a time loop in the year 2019 to rectify his wrongs. However, ultra-zealous individuals known as Gurmsguards, past followers of Gurm's cult of personality, will stop at nothing to free the alleged from trial and assist him in his ascension to godhood. TBA, 2019.
  7. So I searched the forums before posting this thread since the movie is already five years old, but found not mention on it. Surprisingly, I only recently stumbled upon it as it seemed to have slipped under the radar. BUT...I can't stress enough much I enjoyed watching this well-done WWII era horror/scifi. For me, it was basically like walking through a haunted house; I was constantly on edge and a little spooked, but thoroughly enjoying myself at the same time. It is, admittedly, a found footage film but imo doesn't suffer from the over-the-top jerkiness of other like films. If anything, the jerky footage enhanced the narrative and really gave the settings a more ominous tone. But the true highlights of this flick were the hybrid monsters created from the corpses of soldiers and townspeople. The creatures were essentially fusions of flesh and tech existing at the time of WWII, and the costume designs were so elaborate that CGI was completely unnecessary. I had no problem with the plot being a bit thin since the monsters were so impressive, and considering fantastical nature of the monsters, the movie shouldn't be taken too seriously. Here is the trailer: I really want to hear people's input on the film and what your suggestions are for similar movies. And go!

    What’s your all time favorite book series?

    Fantasy - ASOIAF hands down. Has there ever been a series with this level of foreshadowing, red herrings, and myriad number of other literary devices?? Sci-Fi - Revelation Space. The technological/futuristic concepts he creates are second to none imo.

    The Books That Have Just Come Out: New Release Thread

    I'm aware the final book of Ken Scholes' The Psalms of Isaak is coming out soon and am considering giving the series a try. Has anyone here read him? If so, what are your thoughts?

    How would you rate episode 310?

    I fully expected an appearance from Coldhands as well, what a letdown. And how do you not have a cliffhanger in a season finale?
