CONCEPT: POST-ALIEN INVASION WORLD

One of the most prominent questions of science fiction is what kind of world would exist in the aftermath of an alien invasion. How would society rebuild itself? What kind of world would rise from the ashes of the old one? If the invaders won, how would they reshape our planet to their liking? If the natives won, how would they be able to survive on a ravaged planet? I will be addressing these questions in my upcoming fourth and fifth volumes. Let’s just say that the Young Guardians will have their hands full both during the invasion and after it.

FILM REVIEW: DARK CITY

Starring Rufus Sewell, Kiefer Sutherland, Jennifer Connelly, and William Hurt. This film is an elegant blend between rich science fiction and psychological thrills. The part that I enjoy most about this film is that it depicts my favorite superhuman ability, reality warping, which is called tuning in the film. The ultimate twist at the end is really mind-blowing and will answer questions you will be asking yourself as you watch. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys science fiction in its purest form as well as mysteries that will keep you constantly guessing what will happen next.

CREATURE: ALIENS

For as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by the concept of life on other worlds.  When one thinks about how vast the universe is, it would be impossible for us to be completely and utterly alone amongst the stars.  The problem is that there might be some civilizations that are so advanced that they would consider us too primitive to be of any interest.  Still, I often wonder what would it take to get the attention of other civilizations out there.  What does our planet have that would interest them?  I plan on including alien life in my future works, including the fourth volume and one of my planned spin-offs because something will happen that will give aliens something of interest.  I can imagine that the aftermath of the upcoming third volume would be sufficient enough to grab the attention of interstellar civilizations, but I will not go into the details until the fourth volume is released three years from now.  Among the aliens that will appear in the future are an extraterrestrial superhero team who was affected on a personal level by the events that transpire in volume three.  I will keep you all updated on further developments.

FILM REVIEW: INTERSTELLAR

The minute I watched the trailer for Interstellar, I knew I had to see this film.  I have always liked the idea that one day Earth will become so uninhabitable that humanity would be forced to find another home amongst the stars.  After watching the film, I realized that the story was infinitely more complicated than its trailers and synopsis implied.  Not only does Interstellar depict ideas such as deep space travel, wormholes, and life on other worlds, but it also demonstrated other aspects of science fiction that are very rarely explored.  I enjoyed the human emotions that were depicted as mankind fought to find a way to survive oblivion.  In addition, I would recommend this film to anyone who is searching for a richly science fiction story that would take you from the theatre to the great unknown.
