Vexille has what is easily one of the best story lines of any sci-fi recently. If you’re into science fiction movies you owe it to yourself to watch this.

Talk about one heck of a week! I know you probably haven’t been wondering about why I haven’t posted all that much recently (well, other than “why hasn’t Gnorb posted more? Hmm…”), but I’ll explain anyway. This has been one really screwy week. I’ll start with last night and sort of jump around from there.

I wrote about it before, after having seen the opening movie, and while I wasn’t too impressed, I liked what I saw. (Luckily in sci-fi there are only two kinds of movies: good movies and funny movies. The first… Read more Battlestar Galactica, Season 1 Observations
