Green Lantern: Emerald Knights

Seemingly made for Green Lantern enthusiasts


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Even if June 17’s big-screen “Green Lantern” disappoints the comic-book hero’s hardcore fans, at least they’ll have “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights” to hold in their hearts.

Probe

A highly pleasurable, if dated, sci-fi adventure


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Probe” applies sci-fi principles to the “Mission: Impossible” template, making for a highly pleasurable, if dated, 100 minutes.

Dinoshark

Knowingly cheesy, but still fun


Sci-Fi

From Alaska's melting glaciers — "yeah, right," scoffs Sen. Jim Inhofe — comes "Dinoshark"!

Soylent Green

A minor sci-fi classic that's relevant today


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Of Charlton Heston's unofficial trilogy of post-apocalyptic sci-fi — "Planet of the Apes," "The Omega Man" and "Soylent Green" — the new-to-Blu-ray latter is easily the weakest leg, yet ironically, the most relevant today.

Alien 2: On Earth

Now that’s Italian!


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
One year after Ridley Scott’s “Alien” terrified 1979 moviegoers, “Alien 2” presumably baffled them.

Galaxina / The Crater Lake Monster

Two totally unexpected Blu-ray remasters


Sci-Fi

Two movies I never thought I’d see remastered for Blu-ray, much less on the same disc?

Sharktopus

Your intelligence will be neither insulted nor triggered.


Sci-Fi

Rave all you want about Julia Roberts: superstar, Oscar winner, self-appointed god. It's her brother, Eric, who has the more interesting career.

Virus X

Not-terrible disease film is not memorable, either


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Not to say that Stephen King’s “The Stand” won’t one day make the leap from fiction to fact, but I recall with some amusement the public’s total freak-out in 2009 over H1N1, convinced it was the end of the world as we know it.

Monsters

Expect to be moved.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Few monsters appear in “Monsters,” and that’s exactly why I love it. In fact, I think it could even use fewer of them.

All-Star Superman

Way, way too silly


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
As the 11th entry in Warner Bros. Animation's direct-to-video franchise of DC Universe original movies, certainly "All-Star Superman" is the first to kick off with a dick joke.

Dungeons & Dragons / Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of the Dragon God

For the hard-core D&D fans


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
It took a while, but the role-playing phenomenon of the 1980s finally made it to the big screen in 2000, in what was to kick-start a new franchise for New Line Cinema.

Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Following up 1973's hit "Westworld" was the less-successful 1976 sequel, "Futureworld."

Dead Space: Aftermath


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Like its straight-to-DVD brethren "Halo Legends," "Dante's Inferno" and 2008 predecessor "Dead Space: Downfall," the sequel "Dead Space: Aftermath" may only exist to promote a new video game, but I'm glad it exists.

The World, The Flesh and The Devil


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
In terms of mainstream star power and multimedia success, Harry Belafonte was kind of the Will Smith of his time.

Dying God


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Man, is there any project Lance Henrisken won’t do for a check, regardless of how shoddy? No. No, there isn’t. —Rod Lott
