Alien (1979) Directed by Ridley Scott

Okay I do like joking about/reblogging others joking about personal aesthetics, but if I’m really honest that whole “late-1970s through late-1980s science fiction” design style is totally my aesthetic

The fact that colonialism is so central to science-fiction, and that science-fiction is so central to our own pop culture, suggests that the colonial experience remains more tightly bound up with our political life and public culture than we sometimes like to think. Sci-fi, then, doesn’t just demonstrate future possibilities, but future limits—the extent to which dreams of what we’ll do remain captive to the things we’ve already done.

Some mangacaps from Tsutomu Nihei’s new manga Knights of Sidonia.

I’m annoying my friends with how much I’m freaking out over how great it is.

i keep forgetting this is out herr but that just means i can go pick up like ten volumes when i get my summer term money

@makeitthroughthis replied to your post: like remember syfy’s flash gordon reboot that was…

Dominion just looked like a tarted up version of the Prophecy franchise, to me. Mixed in with a dash of whatever the hell that movie was that came out over the winter about Frankenstein fighting angels and demons or whatever

yep

like remember syfy’s flash gordon reboot that was terrible? that was at least entertaining

like by the end of that pilot the world of the show was wierd as hell but the show itself seemed a lot less interested in the ming / mongo plot than the wierd bounty hunter alien girl moving into flash’s farmhouse

dominion is just joyless grumpy conspiracies, it’s man of steel mangst on a tv budget

like the constantine pilot is replacing rachel weisz with a cw tween star but john is going to be cracking wise and harold perrineau jr is on it as a snarky angel

man okay so i just caught the last half hour of syfy’s dominion pilot and it is //balls awful//

i guess it’s in modern ancient greece ala galactica but set in the us so they’re in the city of vega which is not even pretending to not just be vegas with the s lopped off

and there are biblical angels wearing dracula armor trying to kill all the humans i guess

and it is white AS HELL like i guess post apocalyptic greek vegas has neither greeks nor, idk, mexicans? black people? i think one of the evil genocidal angels is korean.

and the lead guy is SO MAYONNAISE and so of course he is in a romantic triangle and also literally the chosen one

and everyone is dour and it feels incredibly derivative and cheap and rushed, which is hilarious that a show about an army of angels bent on the biblical apocalypse feels tired as hell

like if their job was to make the constantine pilot look good, ah, job done

srsly i guess angels are the new vampires

what happened giles, you used to play charming good guys but now you’re typecast as uther

Can we talk about all the money not being made off the syndication rights to the BEVVY of late 90s early 00s scifi/horror/fantasy programming?

Like, the old WB Sunday morning line up alone could be played into a dedicated weekly showcase and they would make bank.

Factor in the Tapert-Raimi stuff, throw in a sprinkle of Chris Carter, maybe even do a single-day marathon of Brimstone or something like that.

I mean the premium genre stations can’t have bought up everything.

oh god what if they brought back Beyond Belief

actually psure Beyond Belief was bought by Chiller
Because every now and again I see it on my channel guide, and I get FURIOUS that it’s not one of the included channels

tales from the darkside, monsters, the nightmare cafe, friday the thirteenth, war of the worlds, beastmaster, relic hunter, mortal kombat, herc, xena, seaquest, cleopatra 2525, jack of all trades, forever knight, beauty and the beast, the invisible man, viper, babylon five, space above and beyond

like metv plays a block on saturday nights of batman 66, wonder woman, and star trek.  syfy used to be syndication city but now theu can’t be bothered, instead of syndicating my childhood

BRIMSTONE WAS MY JAM
