An alternate energy generator is invented, and a test pilot goes through as a fail-safe.
It might have been good, but the perspective was awful and it amplified already-poor writing. The secondary perspective of hopping around in time was aggravating.
- See also TODO for this same point-of-view movie.
A girl is digitized, becoming a valuable commodity for people seeking power and immortality.
This might be interesting for fans of science fiction history, but it's dumb in too many places for me to enjoy it.
If you end up watching this, here are my edited Andromedia subtitles.
A too-forgiving man and his stupid brute of a friend travel as farm hands to scrape together money for the dream of owning their own land.
A thriller, a gripping tale ... that you will not set down until it is finished. Steinbeck has touched the quick.
-- The New York Times, who are about as smart as Lenny.
An unforgivably-terrible book. Awful almost beyond reason. Plodding and boring, it's only a "page turner" because it's tauntingly short enough to tear through like ripping off a bandage. But on the plus side, although it's littered with written-accents, it's not difficult to read.. plus the ending is great!
2019-08-07 - Wow, this was so forgettable that I couldn't actually remember reading it until I read the first few paragraphs..
An man works to undermine his brother's happiness by meddling with his son's marriage. Also two smart people dual with words.
A pretty good book, though my reading of the Signet Classic was seriously interrupted by footnotes. Not because of the shifting up/down to read them, but because the footnotes are crammed all together. Given that this book is 1/4 commentary, axing one for clearer footnotes would have been amazing. Maybe another edition will be better. I intend to collect many of this particular play.
I highly recommend Much Ado About Nothing - (1993 movie), even for those who have no interest in this book.

In a forest where any who die rise as zombies, an escaped convict does something something.
I got 1/3 in and got bored. It's too over-the-top.

A boy-genius is brought into an elite university to work on a laser project with a genius-misfit, but after its spectacular success they learn of its nefarious purpose.
While old, it holds up perfectly. A great movie, with a bunch of laugh-out-loud moments. Unlike the "frat boy" movies which are all about booze and boobs, this one shows genius with its hacker spirit.
A man wakes, reconstructed as a cyborg, and finds himself hunted by unknown forces.
A fucking astonishingly great movie! Fast, bloody and fun. It's effortlessly hilarious, and without being a comedy.
I was initially rather annoyed at the found footage-style shaky camera, but it got so intuitive so fast that it really helped me get into the character and movie. If you like bloody non-stop action movies, definitely give this movie a chance.
Collections of science fiction short stories, curated by.. people I don't know and who have no authority in my mind. They came into being pre-internet and still cling to relevancy.
I was excited to find these, but their stories are hit-and-miss.
This may take me quite some time to read through.
A classic work combining classic works.
I bought this because it's considered one of the great works of literature and has survived into common culture. Though I can see why this would have been popular at the time, especially thanks to the forward saying that the brief writing style was rare, I don't yet see why this would appeal to today's person. Perhaps it's just me, but so far I find the writing style rather insulting.
