In Honor of Bastille Day: 10 Great French SF Films

The new incarnation of SCI FI Wire, one of my main venues for my film criticism,as of yesterday is now Blastr. It’s another corporate branding/name change that seems to be falling on about the one year anniversary of SCI FI Wire/Balstr’s parent company, The Sci Fi Channel, becoming Syfy. The new layout of Blastr is pretty great. It’s pleasing to the eye in the way that SCI FI Wire was not. Though I have to say that I really miss the old Science Fiction Weekly, which got folded into SCI FI Wire about a year and a half ago. I any case, on the first day of Blastr’s existence, I contributed an article in honor of Bastille Day listing the Ten Greatest French SF Flicks. Check it out. I wrote it in a matter of of a couple of hours. It was fun to knock out. And now I want to re-watch La Jetée, having just written about how great it is.

  1. Wow… when did you update your site?! After checking in off and on for years, I’d finally given up. Good thing I saw your twitter update. Anyway, it looks GREAT. Very excited about reading your book, and your Bastille Day article was brilliant. Good stuff, keeping up with the times, Prof. Thanks for letting us know!
