Sorry, this has nothing to do with DC. Another Earth is another good-looking indie sci-fi film that seem to be more prevalent these days. A simple but definitely out-there concept, using it to examining how real people might react, to better understand the human condition — why, just like the short SF stories of the ’50s used to do! Anyways, this one looks possibly sappier than, say, the fantastic Moon, but it’s still getting rave reviews (it also stars Ethan from Lost, but I don’t know how much of a draw that is). Might as well give it a watch if it comes to a theater near you, right? Besides, we really have few enough opportunities to support good science fiction flicks, don’t you think? Thanks to Brett M. for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
