With no modelling gear or a lead pile to prepare for the annual painting challenge, plus being devoid of ladies in the house, this Thanksgiving weekend the boys turned to Sci Fi for a bit of fun. In addition to several long binge sessions playing Beyond Earth, we also went to see Interstellar. Its an edgy 'hard' SF movie with more than a touch of Kubrick's 2001 as an influence. We both really enjoyed it, and while there isn't a lot of action in the almost three hours and two bags of popcorn required, its engaging throughout. Recommended.
