A few months after the inaugural 2014 festival, our team decided to pull together all the profits from the festival and send team member Kelsey Hockmuller into space to discover the true meaning of Science Fiction. The launch and first six months of the exploration went well, but then silence. We tracked the ship and it has been orbiting Saturn for the last year and a half. The great news is the Other Worlds Austin team was able to raise enough money to send a rescue mission to save Kelsey and her crew. Since we have no idea what made the ship go dark, we are planning for everything. Please keep Kelsey in your thoughts. She is screaming right now and no one can hear her.
This weekend is a very important weekend for genre film. Jordan Peele’s original Horror film GET OUT hits theaters nationwide. I was lucky enough to get into the surprise screening of it at Sundance and it delivers on so many levels. Beneath of all the tension and laughs lies some great subtext about liberal racism.
So, why is it important to see this film at the theater? Here’s a list
I can remember the look on my son's face when I told him I got the promotion from Storm Trooper to Imperial Guard. My wife was proud, but more relieved. The Storm Trooper death-on-the-job rate has shot up since the rebellion found a new hope and our pensions had recently been cut to build the Death Star.
