Overview
"When it comes to classic sci-fi movies it's rare to find much in the way of new insights. But Glenn Erickson, whose fine website DVD Savant has produced some of the mostenlightening and clear eyed commentary on the Internet, hasgathered together his essayson 116 imagi-movies, both famous and obscure, into Sci Fi Savant. It's a treasure trove of ideas, opinions and research that'll entertain you for hours. A must-have " Joe Dante, director of GREMLINS, MATINEE, THE HOLE Glenn Erickson, the DVD SAVANT, has been reviewing classic science fiction ever since his column first appeared in the early days of the Internet era. In SCI-FI SAVANT, his writings have been compiled to provide a considered overview of the science fiction genre, from Fritz Lang's groundbreaking METROPOLIS to James Cameron's AVATAR. These films explore not just the furthest reaches of outer space, but the profound and sometimes dangerous ideas that can lie behind the sparkling veneer of robots, rayguns and aliens.
