I’ve had a blast, and I hope you did too.
As we move into 2012, I am starting up a new recurring feature called “1982 in Film,” which reviews movies from the great genre year of 1982.
This was the span that brought the world highlights such as Blade Runner, Conan the Barbarian, Creepshow, The Dark Crystal, E.T., Firefox, Poltergeist, Q, The Secret of NIMH, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, The Thing and Tron, as well as cult movies such as The Beastmaster, Class of 1984, Cat People, Timerider and The Last Unicorn. I’ll be reviewing ALL of these memorable productions in 2012, in remembrance of thirty years since ’82.
Also in 2012 on the blog, I’ll be writing retrospectives of the Jurassic Park film trilogy and Harryhausen’s Sinbad trilogy. Plus, to celebrate the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises in July, I’ll be featuring a Batman week much in the vein of the Planet of the Apes week last year.
Finally, I’ll be continuing to look back at some of the unexcavated gems of Star Trek: The Next Generation to celebrate that program’s historic 25th anniversary.
And, of course, in 2012 I’ll continue to examine cult-tv faces of different sci-fi tv tropes and conventions, and highlight “collectibles of the week.” Also, come summer, I’ll be offering another director retrospective…or two.
Stick around! The best is yet to come…
