John ScalziClick here to read John Scalzi's take
on the best SciFi films of 2010

Some of you may remember my totally bitchin' column for AMC called "Laughing in the Face of Death." When AMC wanted to move that over to FilmCritic.com, ARealGirl and I decided to let it cease so that I could buckle down on writing and podcasting. I loved the column, but we were in crunch time with STARTER and ANCESTOR, and I was letting deadlines slip, so we had to re-calibrate the gunsights.

But science fiction author John Scalzi did make the jump from AMC to FilmCritic.com, and I think y'all would really dig his weekly take on scifi flicks. Scalzi is clever, has a categorical knowledge of all things scifi, and has a 11-5 record in MMA fights. How can you go wrong with that? Home-slice also has a huge audience, courtesy of his books and his Whatever blog (I invented the Internet, but Scalzi invented blogging).

Swing over and give him a read, and if you leave a comment tell him I sent ya.

NOTE: I couldn't agree less with him on INCEPTION, but other than that he's solid. And? Mean as hell with the triangle choke.

I miss your AMC blog

I got lots of good movie ideas for my Netfix queue from your blog. This guy mentions Buckaroo Banzai (an ALL time great movie, IMHO), so he's got some good ideas. I think I'll give Despicable Me a look.

did i read that right?

an 11-5 record in mma is fucking amazing.  FDO you should recruit him as your FUTURE DARK BODY GAURD.  or at least put him in charge of training the new grunts.
