CHICAGO – Warner Brothers recently unveiled a slate of science fiction films, many of which are making their debut on Blu-ray or are being made available on their own for the first time. Check out the HD releases of “Forbidden Planet,” “Lost in Space,” “Mars Attacks!,” “The Matrix Reloaded,” “A Scanner Darkly,” and “THX 1138: Director’s Cut.”

Obviously, the collection of WB sci-fi hits features six films from different eras and with wildly varying levels of quality but at least five of the releases offer something worth checking out and a couple could arguably be called must-owns (except, sadly, none include new special features for those who already own the standard DVD and are considering an upgrade), especially for fans of the genre. Sci-fi has always been a genre that fits well with the brilliance of 1080p, so consider an upgrade on one or all of the six catalog releases now on shelves.

  • [Trans]formation

    CHICAGO – The issue of gender identity, especially for those who are born with a vagueness as to what to call themselves between/beyond boy and girl, has come front and center in the U.S., both with the legalization of gay marriage and the callous repudiation of identity by trying to pass laws dismissing it (the North Carolina “bathroom” laws). The performance companies of The Living Canvas and Nothing Without a Company is currently staging “[Trans]formation,” which presents gender identity art by six performers, who perform most of the play in the nude.

  • Life Sucks

    CHICAGO – Let’s face it, life does suck. But what can we do about that? How do we survive? Lookingglass Theatre Company’s latest stage presentation tries to answer those thorny questions through a group of fellow travelers, flung together at a cabin retreat, trying to figure out why (indeed) “Life Sucks.”
