A-N-Y-O-N-E -- can rise to prominence in any given Science Fiction property: all that such success really requires is that the property be good, be interesting, and be willing to keep the interest of whatever audience it earns. That's why something so benign as taking a classic Western such as High Noon, set it in deep space, and still manage to give the tale a freshness compatible with the original. Talk about isolation against the odds?
And -- speaking of isolation -- how about taking the fundamental 'slasher' flick formula and set it on a mining vessel, also out among the stars, where it's just you, the 'slasher' in Alien form, and an endless frontier?
Or how about having no other choice but to plunder the victims of tragedies from time itself in order to provide even the smallest hope for the future?
Such is the case with Outland, Alien, and Millennium, three SciFi films which possess links to August 25th. Make sure to take a gander, and enjoy what you read.
As always, thanks for reading ... and live long and prosper!
