The War of the Worlds

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20100401.htm Count me as fan of the Spielberg remake. Yeah, the George Pal film was good for its time, and I liked it a lot when I was a kid... but it really is embedded in its time. It's as good as 1950's SF cinema could be. But the Spielberg remake is clearly embedde...

On remakes and cannibalism

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20100401.htm Guys, I just don't agree that remakes are all that much a sign of the Film Apocalypse. First of all, if people were complaining about "remake crazes" in 1966, and the film industry hasn't collapsed _yet_, then maybe their dangers have been exaggerated some...

The Philcon Program Book

Name: Brian Siano Source: unca20100401.htm Harlan, it would be my honor to send you the publications materials. I just got back from an _excellent_ weekend because of them.

Thanks, Harlan.
