The Illuminati drive flying cars.

Blade Runner: Electronic Owls and Illuminati Symbolism

However. it's the Tyrell Corporation's taste in architecture and wild life that really sounds the Illuminati alarm. The Tyrell Headquarters are a gigantic seven hundred stories tall pyramided shaped skyscraper. Perhaps resembling an Aztec or Ancient Egyptian pyramid.

A classic symbol associated with the Illuminati, the pyramid has always been an icon of authoritarianism and higher power. A meeting place between Heaven and Earth where great Kings and High Priests became gods in their peoples' eyes. Ridley Scott couldn't have picked a better design for the HQ of his replicants' post-modern father/maker and corporate dictator Tyrell.

"Crawling horror . . ."

Back in high-school I actually owned a poster commemorating "The Giant Leeches," a film I still haven't actually seen.

Dark Roasted Blend has more here.

I'm more than happy to help out with viral marketing, provided it's good viral marketing.

A science fiction movie worth seeing?

Although I've become almost hopelessly pessimistic about Hollywood's ability to entertain me, I'm virtually certain I'll be buying a ticket to "District 9," apparently an expansion of "Alive in Joburg."

Shaking it

Missing out on this almost compensates for not having a moon base by now.

"Famous Monster"

I've traveled the country with film-maker Mike MacDonald, so I'm supremely embarrassed that I have yet to view "Famous Monster," his documentary about science fiction/horror icon Forrest J. Ackerman.

Fortunately for genre devotees, the film now has its own blog. And yes, copies can be ordered.

The best movie I've seen all year

This film festival continues . . .

(Hat tip to Beyond the Beyond.)

"The Black Hole"

This short film is surpassingly clever.

"High probability"

Fortean researcher Greg Bishop laments the popular assumption that "real" UFOs must be extraterrestrial spacecraft:

The problem with the "high probability" line of reasoning is that it uses an assumption as a proof (or near as one can get.) It requires a leap of faith to assume that other theories (tulpas, cryptoterrestrials, time travelers, etc) are less valid than the ET hypothesis, with no more going for it than our present belief structures. In this sense it shares equal weight with these other ideas, but it is nearly always presented as the only theory worthy of consideration.

Meanwhile, Nick Redfern takes a break from his typically grueling chupacabra-hunting schedule to chat about zombie movies.

"Lost in a Moment"

I found this short film amazingly poignant. (Be sure to watch it in full-screen mode.)

10 Things Science Fiction Got Wrong

"His name is Mac and I want to introduce you to him."

Some of you might remember my appearance in this 80s kid-flick. I was never satisfied with the script and spent many long evenings confined to my trailer arguing with studio execs.

I've been asked to provide a voice commentary for a forthcoming four-disc DVD edition of "Mac and Me." I'll keep you posted.

Planet of the Apes Font by Filmfonts

Just think of the great condolence missives you could make with this.
