Innerspace: Inventive Sci-Fi Romp With Ace Practical Effects — Professional Moron

Here’s a 1987 sci-fi comedy that was a big hit for us as kids. The practical effects are excellent and it’s good old jolly romp. Rather! Innerspace Directed by Joe Dante, the film stars a young Dennis Quaid, Martin Short, and Meg Ryan. This was our The Thing (1982) of our childhood! Set in San […]

Reviews: Recent Sci-Fi Reads — Acquadimore Books

Today, I’m reviewing two adult science fiction novels I’ve read recently! Both are new releases; one is a new installment in a well-loved series and one an introspective futuristic novel translated from Chinese. I first decided to read Network Effect because of the hype.

Drawing Sci-Fi and finding Imagination — Simon’s Space

I’ve been very much in a creative lull lately. Since pretty much the beginning of the year I’ve hardly written, drawn, sketched or done any digital art… I needed to rejuvenate my creativeness. So I looked about a bit and I found myself a book on creating Sci-Fi concepts! Mechanika from Doug Chiang is packed […]

Watching the Extended LOTR with Kids – all Twelve Hours — Jodi L. Milner, Author

Being stuck at home has very few perks, being able to watch the entire extended Lord of the Rings movies with the whole family ended up being one of them. My kiddos hadn’t seen any of them before. Until recently the youngest was too young to understand or be okay with the action scenes. It […]
