From the Author 1 novembre 2011
Par R - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Full disclosure: I am the author of Sci-Fi Movie Freak. Obviously my opinion will be biased, but I just wanted to say how much work I put into this book and how very pleased I am with the outcome. Not only do I believe it has great content, but the publisher really put together a great-looking physical product.

For the past several years I have run the sci-fi film (and occasionally comics) review site The Sci-Fi Block, and I consider Sci-Fi Movie Freak to be the culmination of my lifelong love and appreciation of sci-fi cinema. In this book, you will read (and hopefully learn) about a little over a hundred of what I consider the most important science fiction films of all time. The book (chiming in at 255 pages) is divided by-movie and consists of reviews of each, wherein I discuss what makes them so great or otherwise important. My aim was to make Sci-Fi Movie Freak both valuable and accessible to sci-fi fans as well as newcomers to the genre. If you don't know much about science fiction cinema, this book is all you need to help you get started. If you already love science fiction, I hope (and believe) that this book will add to your appreciation of these movies.

Please enjoy this book. I honestly love it, and I think you will, too.

A great book to share with your kids 8 novembre 2011
Par K. Liesl - Publié sur
Format: Broché
My 11 year old son and I were BOTH fascinated with this book. We read it together. These are iconic movies and Ring picked iconic photos for each of them. Star Wars! Godzilla! Avatar! My kid was going nuts seeing familiar movies among his favorites as well as learning about some pretty obscure ones.

It's fun to see how Ring packs in so many great movies produced in the last 109 years. Rather than taking the boring countdown approach, Ring categorizes movies under concepts such as 'Best of the Best,' 'Lesser-Known Gems,' and 'The Failures,' which was my favorite chapter. Who knew a movie about giant attack rabbits called 'Night of the Lepus' would suck?

Another plus: a rather impressive trove of vintage sci-fi movie posters is included in the descriptions. This book isn't JUST for sci-fi fans - it's for anyone who likes movies, period!

Good Book Overall But Incomplete: Missing Some Sci-Fi & No Fantasy 23 octobre 2012
Par MacheteJason - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Overall this is an interesting book with some good commentary and full-color pictures. It was a great read and Ring really knows his stuff. The author is obviously analytical and breaks down each movie according to the underlying message. Therein lies the problem as the enjoyment of a sci-fi flick gets reduced to analyzing its technical aspects, metaphysical message and societal impact. Also, the list shows a definite preference for 1950s classics and movies released in the past 10 years (the selections create a barbell effect where many new classics from the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s are not included). His definition of science fiction in the introduction is limited to "scientific advancements, processes and phenomenons". That means many key titles like 1984, Total Recall, Gattaca, Artificial Intelligence, Vanilla Sky, Butterfly Effect, I Am Legend, They Live and the flop Dune aren't even mentioned at all. If they aren't sci-fi movies then what are they? 1984 is an absolute landmark book and film that influenced many books, movies and society at large. Fantasy is completely ignored so there is no talk of Excalibur, Jacob's Ladder, Conan the Barbarian or Logan's Run either. I have ranked the chapters below.

Rating: A-. Chapter 1: I would agree with the "Best of the Best" rankings except Bride of Frankenstein and Young Frankenstein. Very well done.
Rating: B. Chapter 2: Some movies from Chapter 3 belong here (notably Brazil, The Thing and Invasion of the Body Snatchers) but it is fairly complete.
Rating: C+. Chapter 3: This is the most controversial chapter where Robocop, Superman, Back to the Future and Minority Report reside with Re-Animator, Phantom Menace, Transformers and some anime. Not all of it seems right.
Rating: C. Chapter 4: This section doesn't offer much although Cube is finally shown some respect. These titles are fairly obscure which makes me wonder why more films couldn't be crammed in here. It could be described as a film student's recommended list.

There are also some lists provided. You do get your money's worth in this book if you like the visual format but the lack of respect shown certain titles is surprising. Ring does take the nostalgia out of certain films (e.g. criticizing Back to the Future's plot) by taking a technical approach. In some ways this book is better written than Horror Movie Freaks but that book includes almost all of the great horror movies from every era. A sci-fi section on cheesy/outdated films, remakes and new classics could have made Sci-Fi Movie Freak even better. Mr. Ring does seem like a pretty cool guy who is a deep thinker inspired by philosophy, religion and the metaphysical. Grabbing a beer with him to pick his brain would no doubt be rewarding for his readers.

Like Eating Popcorn 31 octobre 2011
Par An Indy Fan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I couldn't put this book down. Seriously. I started with the review of Metropolis and read straight through to the author's Top 10 List of Villains at the back of the book. In one sitting. It was like eating popcorn. Author Robert C. Ring has put together a fun and delightfully addictive book reviewing more than 100 science-fiction movies of everything from classics to modern blockbusters. He also includes a chapter on clunkers and lists of his favorite movies, directors, female characters, and robots. I wouldn't say I'm a Sci-Fi Freak, having seen about a third or so of the movies featured in the book. But I thoroughly enjoyed it. The design is also easy on the eyes with lots of great images. The book includes a DVD of Plan 9 From Outer Space, an amazingly bad film I first laughed through in college. All in all, great stuff. Lots of fun, made me think and throughly engrossing -- just like a good sci-fi movie. If you've seen or read Horror Movie Freak -- another title by the same publisher -- you'll have a good idea of the format and style of the book.

An outstanding overview of the genre 10 novembre 2011
Par Brent Frankenhoff - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Ring does a great job of providing both hardcore and casual fans of science-fiction films with an overview of not only their favorites and the best known films, but also overlooked classics and some titles that should be overlooked (or viewed just to see if they're as bad as he says). He also manages to never spoil major plot points when discussing any of these films. The images and layout are outstanding and give a true feeling of what the viewer is in for in every case.
