Flashback to the films Interstellar and Gravity. This latest voyage into outer space places itself firmly between the two.

Starset, whose unique style has been dubbed "cinematic rock," isn't your average rock band. That's thanks in large part to lead singer Dustin Bates, who as a Ph.D. candidate in electrical engineering and a former teacher at the International Space University, is anything but your average musician.

Never in my lifetime have I heard of a science fiction theatre festival -- perhaps because they never existed until actor/writer David Dean Bottrell came up with the idea in 2013 after reading The Wife's Story, a dark and unusual short piece by the great Ursula LeGuin.

Movie Review: Ex Machina -- Mechanical

Marshall Fine | Posted 06.24.2015 | Entertainment
Marshall Fine

Ex Machina is both tastily minimal and frustratingly simplistic. Alex Garland's directing debut (he wrote 28 Days Later and Sunshine) is, in essence, a three-hander about three people in a house. OK, a high-tech mansion, but you get the point.
