I just finished watching The Wind and the Lion (1975) on DVD. In one of the scenes I caught some familiar-sounding soundtrack passages that brought to mind the Klingon theme from ST: TMP. Sure enough, ...

With 2001, it wasn't a case of the movie being based on the book or vice versa. Although they began with the same story outline (inspired by Clarke's short story "The Sentinel"), Kubrick's ...

... I'm equally fond of The Adventures of Don Juan.
The queen was played by Viveca Lindfors, whom you will remember, of course, from Stargate (1994).

Ben Casey in space!

From the trailer it looks like the evil aliens haven't discovered the trick of recruiting kids for their gunnery stations.

Hey guys, you do know that this was made from Clark's sequel novel, right? It was a pretty faithful adaption too.
Yes, but Kubrick wasn't so faithful to the original novel. I had to read the book af ...

I'm puzzled by your comment. I think the "loose ends" in 2001 are supposed to be unanswered and unanswerable, Kubrick's way of challenging the viewer to explore the questions poised by the ...

I found 2010 to be a satisfactory sci-fi yarn on its own merits. I wouldn't expect any sequel to live up to 2001 without Kubrick at the helm. 2010 was simply tying up loose ends that 2001 left for us ...

... I'm not entirely sure why we are treated to two photographs of Burgess Meredith.
I think that's George Touliatos. Burgess is third from the left in Bud's poster.

That Lee Majors is such a rebel. And Burgess Meredith as a jet fighter pilot... What won't they dare try next? Rolling Eyes

Interesting that Bud's poster reads, "A phantom jet", whereas Custer' ...

Yeah, but now my post doesn't make sense, because you changed the quote as well, which didn't say that originally. Confused

I, too, came up with a different size for the saucer. In his YouTube video, Steve estimates the saucer's length between 195 and 235 feet. The Saucer Fleet book gives a calculated length of 198 feet. T ...
