Oblivion

Cruise into a dystopian future.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Oblivion marks the second Tom Cruise vehicle in a row — Jack Reacher being the first — to underperform at the box office and underwhelm critics, yet turns out to be not bad. Not bad at all! (Scientology backlash? Signs point to “yes.”)

Errors of the Human Body

What sci-fi should be.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
It's too easy to compare Errors of the Human Body to the "body horror" entries on David Cronenberg's CV — too easy because it's all too apt. As much as it brings that master director to mind, the new film is original enough to stand on its own terms.

Dark Angel

The high-def release comes in peace.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
When did 1990's I Come in Peace become Dark Angel? More importantly, why? Did some porno cop its title? Now people will confuse it with that one TV series Jessica Alba did for James Cameron before she became a movie star.

The Frozen Dead

A head of its time.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott

I've seen many a zombie movie — too many, one could argue successfully — but 1966's The Frozen Dead must be the first in which a member of the undead was so concerned with hair care, Carly Simon probably wrote a song about him. As the pic's mad scientist introduces him, “This one is harmless. He combs his hair continuously, like a vain adolescent.”

Star Trek Into Darkness

Boldly going again.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott

With the run of original Star Trek films, there's a long-standing theory that only the even-numbered entries are good, i.e. Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. Well, that theory does not apply to director J.J. Abrams' rebooted franchise; both of his voyages of the starship Enterprise — 2009's Star Trek and this summer's sequel of Star Trek Into Darkness — stand strong as successes across the board: creative, critical and financial.

Contraception empowers women


Commentary

Ryan Kiesel
Almost a century has passed since Margaret Sanger was arrested in Brooklyn. Her crime? Establishing a clinic dedicated to offering free contraceptives to women.
