Jean Anne Lauer’s love of SciFi can be traced back to the book Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O’Brien, which was a prized RIF acquisition and which she read at least a million times. Also as a child, she regularly watched such classics as Fantastic Voyage (Dir. Fleischer), fell in love with Kurt Russell in The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes (Dir. Butler), and never missed an opportunity to see The Absent Minded Professor (Dir. Stevenson).

What's your favorite SciFi movie and why?

I don't have any children but I imagine this is what parents feel when you ask them to name a favorite kid... There are so many movies that I feel define different times of my life that I love...
