H.G. Wells

Film Review: ‘The Invisible Man’ is a True Heart Pounding Thriller

CHICAGO – When I think of “The Invisible Man” the first thing I think of is the special effects… and that’s largely what it’s been about … from Claude Raines initial portrayal of “The I Man” in the 1930s, all the way through more modern takes like Kevin Bacon in the thriller “Hollow Man” (2000).

Blu-ray Review: Remarkable Vision of H.G. Wells’ ‘Things to Come’

Things to Come

CHICAGO – 1936’s “Things to Come” was a landmark of science fiction design. While the film itself may bear a few too many marks of its era to truly satisfy modern fans, it is a must-see simply for the stunning fact that it was produced almost 80 years ago. The visuals here are breathtaking, unlike anything else from the period. And it makes perfect sense that such an essential film would be included in the most essential Blu-ray collection in history, Criterion.
