It's the dog days of the off season, wherein only Baseball, Softball and a few assorted -ball and non-ball sports are played. There's little news other than recruiting tidbits to share. Furthermore, we are composed of mostly 40 and under nerds and nerdettes (Herm notwithstanding), so I figure nobody will likely complain if I suggest we all watch this over and over and over.
More than anything else, I just want this movie to prove that traditional sci-fi (future setting, aliens, unexplained technology, etc), still works when the writing is strong. The crop for this kind of sci-fi has been so weak lately.They've all been either present-day/one-day in the future kind of things that try to basce it all around sounding legitimately sciency, or really, they've been flops. I'm counting on this to live up to one of the best books ever written, and right a stricken genre.
