Carriers follows a small group of youngsters as they tear through the American Southwest in search of refuge from a particularly virulent global pandemic. It eschews much in the way of an exploration of the condition that has decimated humanity, simply sketching out the scenario as background to the smaller scale human drama at its heart. The four leads are all excellent--notably Chris Pine who plays Brian with much of the same bravado that he brought to the young Kirk in what was to be his next role--which is just as well given this is mostly a character piece. As such it plays out its themes of compassion, euthanasia, responsibility and coming-of-age and explores just what kinds of… Read more
Experiments at 3 Billion A.M. (Paperback) by Alexander Zelenyj
For the record, Alexander Zelenyj's brilliant and bizarre Experiments At 3 Billion A.M. is a must-read. Zelenyj's fiction is both startling and a genuine comfort; his poetic tales accomplish the seemingly impossible by granting his readers the opportunity to experience the world through eyes wholly new. The slipstream stories contained herein, ranging from playful to outright apocalyptic, are unique and simply extraordinary. Captivating, charming, and a challenge to our preconceived understandings of life, love, and all things both worldly and otherworldly, the weighty Experiments At 3 Billion A.M. is a tome to be treasured.

A dystopian near-future meets a rebirth of the feudal system in Neil Marshall's post-apocalyptic vision, in which an elite team of military operatives accompany medical experts into the no-go zone that is Scotland in 2035 to find a cure for a virus that is decimating the population.

The central conceit of the film--that government would choose to seal off Scotland and rebuild Hadrian's Wall as a reaction to the virus--is cute and hokey to begin with, and this perhaps gives some indication as to the tonal and stylistic decisions taken with the project. Unapologetically derivative, the Mad Max elements and a deliberate attempt to set the modern solider against the medieval knight… Read more
