Hey gang, I don't think there is a thread for this yet and it seems like a big enough topic of its own to warrant its own thread. Poast here about your favorite science fiction literature or cinema, your interpretations or reviews of it, and your recommendations. As I've already posted in another thread, I am a big fan of Blade Runner 2049. I love the first Blade Runner as well, but I am one of those people who holds the sequel in higher regard. I might be in the minority in that regard, but that is a substantial minority from what I can tell. Maybe I like it more than the first film because it's easier for me to relate to; I was not even alive yet when the first one came out. There are "reactionary" elements to the film that I also appreciate; I don't think it's an accident that SJW types tend to be either ambivalent or somewhat hostile towards the film. As far as literature goes, I love Nightfall by Isaac Asimov and Robert Silverberg. I tend to gravitate towards stories that are specifically about the collapse of civilizations (this is not the same thing as a story that simply has a collapsed or post-apocalyptic civilization as a narrative backdrop.) I've been meaning to start reading Asimov's Foundation series. The concept behind it sounds really cool. Actually, I tend to like most of the concepts that Asimov comes up with, even though I have serious philosophical disagreements with him (he seems to have been a kind of early fedora-tipping atheist-humanist type and I am a Catholic who is highly skeptical of so-called progress.) I've been trying to get through Neuromancer by William Gibson, but I've found it to be a difficult read. Alright, your turn.
