I've just learned there is a movie, released in 2021, called Planet Dune.

It gets worse. The story is about a rescue mission to the planet, where the crew ends up being hunted by...giant sandworms.

The punchline? It stars Sean Young.

EDIT: It's on Amazon Prime. Adding it to my watchlist now...

I just stated the series “Raised by Wolves”. Missed it when it came out. It was canceled after two seasons but I enjoyed the first episode (the 1st two are directed by Ridley Scott and it shows.)

Anyone one else see? Anyway, I like the aesthetics of it all.

I watched all of it. It is definitely a strange series. I appreciate that it seemed so different than any other sci-fi stuff I've watched, but I didn't love it in the end. It was just okay. I loved the actress Amanda Collin in it. Seems like the role of "Mother" was made for her. Abubakar Salim was also excellent as "Father".

One of my favorite peasant protest techniques (I have read both European and Japanese examples) is the spontaneous pilgrimage. You can't legally stop work or strike, but if the entire village decides they need to pray at the same time the lords can't stop their religious expression. And putting most of a village on a shared journey has a lot of storytelling possibilities.

I liked it... but was as much if not more frustrated by how obtuse a lot of it was. Normally I'm good at the whole spotting metaphor and allegory stuff, which they certainly employ, but for reasons that then flip it on its head and leave you wondering... "What's that supposed to mean?!"

By which time they've introduced something new and even more bizarre.

I watched it again for fun this summer. I didn’t hate it, even the first time around. It isn’t the same as the comics but still enjoyable. Anyhow, I prefer it to superhero stuff.


Here is a resurrection of a DC character worth getting excited over. Warner Bros will develop another installment of the 2005 supernatural thriller Constantine, and the studio is re-teaming star Keanu Reeves and director Francis Lawrence, who made his helming debut on the original.

SYFY has taken to putting up episodes of Resident Alien on their Youtube channel. I'm only 2 episodes in but I like it, almost as much as I love doom patrol.
Plus Alan Tudyk!
I'm really late to the party, but I subscribed to Peacock last month and Resident Alien turned out to be the best treat on the menu. Eagerly waiting for the last episode of Season 2, which drops next week.
