Und weil Politik und Wirtschaft nun wirklich nur Irre und Vollidioten (wie mich) interessieren, hier etwas – und das meine ich 120%ig ernst – wirklich interessantes und viel wichtigeres: Die 2006er Doku „The Sci-Fi Boys“, unter anderem mit Peter Jackson, John Landis, Ray Harryhausen, Roger Corman, Ray Bradburry, Forrest J. Ackerman (Famous Monsters of Filmland, Braindead, Return of the living Dead II, The Kentucky Fried Movie), Dennis Muren (Super 8, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Return of the Jedi), Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, Deep Rising), Bob Ducsay (Tremors 2).

Legendary all-stars of cinema bring to life the evolution of science-fiction and special effects films from the wild and funny days of B-movies to blockbusters that have captured the world’s imagination. This is the story of the Sci-Fi Boys, who started out as kids making amateur movies inspired by Forrest J Ackerman’s FAMOUS MONSTERS magazine and grew up to take Hollywood by storm, inventing the art and technology for filming anything the mind can dream.
