Hi there bloggies, I’ve been seeing some post warning me of an A – Z Challenge and I was curious. I’ve seen this around before but have never participated, for some mad reason I thought I would give it a go.
So here I am.
My theme is the A-Z of Scifi moves, I’ve not given this a great deal of thought and I know of a number but I won’t lie there’s some I will struggle with. But anyway, here goes starting strangely enough with Z. Ha! Joking A!
A is for… Alien(s)
Alien, the film where a lone crew pick up a rather unpleasant alien visitor that stuck itself to one their crew’s faces. It all started when they followed a message to it’s source and found an alien spaceship filled with eggs…
The alien quickly grows and starts becoming a bit annoying by eating the crew’s brains and taking away their bodies. One by one each of the crew are picked off until only one remains and they blow it’s alien bottom into space.
This is a typical scifi horror flick with all the gripping why the hell are you doing that stuff going on and yet it’s somehow unique. I think the Alien bursting out of a man’s chest is responsible for that, nothing as nightmarish had been dreamed of before and it was something I couldn’t watch.
The following and genre created from this is huge and it still going today. It’s generally a thumbs up for this and the sequel Aliens which is similar except there’s lots of aliens being blown away by hard ass marines.
That makes for letter A – B should follow tomorrow!
Science fiction is as the name suggests the fiction of science. I thought it would be a fun, interesting and at times mind bending idea too look at the science behind some of the technology in science fiction and look under the hood to see what’s required to make it work or what barriers areContinue reading “Science in Sci-Fi – Time Travel”

This is the story of evolving understanding and how simplicity gives way to incredible truth’s that seems to sit at odds with how we think life should be… andContinue reading “Time, Space and the Universe as we know it – Part 2 Relative Motion”
