Howdy Sci-Fi film fanatics! This here is yer old pal Major Mac Maniac! You young’uns might not remember me on account of I been hangin’ out here in space fer the last ten years or so. I’m beginnin’ ta think them there NASA lab-jockeys have plumb fergut about me up here in orbit on the Hysterical IV. Now I know how that there John Tracy felt bein’ stuck on Space-Monitor duty whilest the rest o’ his kin got ta go off rescuin’ folks in in their fancy Donnervogle. What can I say? I watched the dang show while I was stationed in Germany! Sorry fer gittin’ side tracked, but the damn machine transliteratin’ this here post is puttin’ down every verb I spit out. It’s probably havenin’ a computation conniption fit figurin’ out how ta spell my high-faulting dissertation. I finally made me a deal with the Ruskies ta upgrade my dish so I can pick up the Playboy channel… I mean… so I can hook up ta the Internets and contribute to Freak’s little blog.
Ol’ Doc Freak’s been spendin’ so much time convertin’ hours of Zombzany’s video tapes ta digital doo doo that he’s been remiss in his duties as a sci fi film freak! I aim ta correct that blunder with a review of some of the latest films that Hollywood has the gall ta label SF. The most recent cinematic concoction that I could call science fiction is the film Repo Men, which was released ta theaters last year, but I only just caught on HBO via my dish. Maybe I’ve been starved for entertainment fer too long, but this here dystopian drama weren’t too bad!
