Eve of Destruction

Aims for 'Terminator' territory.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Military marksman Col. Jim McQuade (Gregory Hines, Running Scared) is called into top-secret duty to neutralize a surveillance robot gone haywire in San Francisco. It won't be easy, because for one thing, the android is undetectable from a human. For another, it has a built-in nuclear bomb that will detonate upon imminent threat.

Saturn 3

Ring around the risible.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott

What's a director of classic musicals doing in science fiction? Making Saturn 3, one of the worst of the genre Hollywood made in the immediate post-Star Wars / Alien era. Stanley Donen (Singin' in the Rain) takes to it about as well as you'd expect; he's in over his head.

The Last Days on Mars

Mars needs Lysol.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
With his good looks, Liev Schreiber (TV's Ray Donovan) seems born to play an astronaut. In Magnet Releasing's The Last Days on Mars, he finally gets the chance. As chief systems officer Vincent Campbell, he's part of Aurora's six-month mission on the red planet with only 19 hours left to go before heading home. What could go wrong?

Gravity

Space is the place.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Gravity is one of those rare films that truly is meant to be experienced on the big screen. If theaters were a thing of the past — and believe me, it's only a matter of time — it is doubtful it would have been made.

Iron Sky: Director's Cut

The empire Reichs back ... again!


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
It's 2018, and a U.S. president who looks uncannily like Sarah Palin sends a black man to the moon in a bid for re-election. The American lunar module lands on the dark side of the moon — you know, where the Transformers live — and finds an enormous Nazi outpost that's been there since Hitler's plan for world domination failed.

Escape from Tomorrow

Magic Kingdom! Space Mountain! Stress-induced insanity!


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
With Escape from Tomorrow, one fears the story behind the movie would loom larger than the movie itself. Luckily, that is not the case. After all, it opens with a decapitation on Disney World’s Big Thunder Mountain Railroad roller coaster.
