Review: Mr. Holmes

I’ve often said I would go to see Sir Ian McKellen read his shopping list. I’m also a huge Sherlock Holmes fan. Put those two together and Mr. Holmes looked like the perfect movie for me. Sure, I heard it was a bit slow paced. No action at all. Just a drama about an aging …

Vanishing Point

The more things change, the more we want them to be like they used to be. (Except for when we don’t.) Back in the 1970s I spent a lot of summer nights in local drive-in theaters south of Seattle. Victims of changing demographics, the video tape player, and rising land prices of the 1980s, drive-in …

William Gibson on the Neuromancer film news

Yesterday I pointed to news about the Neuromancer film finally being greenlighted. Apparently I wasn’t the only one to notice.

Neuromancer finally greenlighted?

It is been on and off more times than I can remember, but FirstShowing.net is reporting that the Neuromancer movie has a budget and is being fast tracked. Of course it probably won’t be the Neuromancer we all know and love: The novel examines the concepts of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, genetic engineering, multinational corporations …
