A Is For Altered States

Altered_States001



Outer space is all well and good, but all the cool kids know that inner space is where it’s at. Rob and Clive take a look at the Ken Russell adaptation of Paddy Cheyefsky’s Altered States, and come to the conclusion that the greatest discovery of all is the ability to love…

A Is For Adele Blanc-Sec


Mon Dieu! Rob and Clive peek into the world of French SFF, with a nose around Les Adventures Extraordinaires de Adele Blanc-Sec. A crazy steam-punk mash-up, part Indiana Jones, part Amelie, part Tintin, with a wink to Melies. Mummies! Pterodactyls! Bringing people back from the dead! It’s all in here!

We apologise in advance for the ‘Allo ‘Allo-style dodgy French accents.
