The Andromeda Strain

Epic Movie Countdowns: Back to the Future

Yes that’s right – New Years just happened like, a week ago… counting down, people count down on New Years… that’s the point, and it’s as close as I can get to writing about something that relates to the holidays, and it’s way late. And while I first thought to do this because of the end of 2011, it actually turned out to be a fun list to think about. How do you judge the intensity of a ticking clock? It’s not always how close the characters came to zero – sometimes it’s about the process itself, getting to inevitability, fighting time. It’s rather like life, and the knowledge that being on this world is a sort of countdown. Every year is another tick of the clock, leading every one of us to the same inescapable conclusion. So uh… Happy New Year! …Here’s a list counting down countdowns.


Vintage Trailer of the Day Logo

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. Today’s trailer presents the world’s first space-age crisis as it takes place inside the five-story research laboratory deep underneath the ground. It’s already killed an old man, and a baby, and it’s growing… If you here the phrase, “There’s a fire, sir,” get the hell out of there. Think you know what it is? Check out the trailer after the jump.


When Ridley Scott presses his eye up to the lens, he’s a genius. He leaves audiences speechless whether from the irrational fear of alien attack or the hauntingly beautiful imagery of a wheat field in a memory. When he opens his mouth for an interview, he leaves us at a loss for words for a different reason.


Robert Fure finds the cure for “The Andromeda Strain.” Don’t watch it.
