Heil Heinlein In Theaters
Starship Troopers **** [Official Web Site]
Full review. Paul Verhoeven's dark vision of a post-Nazi future. Robert A. Heinlein's sci-fi novel about a battle with alien bugs is transformed into an exploration of the role and importance of war and violence in an ultra-nationalistic society. This one's not for the kids. Be sure to check out the elaborate official Web site.

Books Wizard and Glass
Ophelia's review. Wizard and Glass is Stephen King's fourth installment of the Dark Tower series.

On Video Movie Attacks!
Mars Attacks! * [Official Web Site]
Full review. Tim Burton directs an all-star cast in what was perhaps supposed to be a loving tribute and/or spoof of the bad sci-fi movies we see on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Unfortunately, it's neither charming nor funny.
