Science Fiction & Fantasy Community Blog

This blog was originally part of the Stack Exchange network, but in fall 2016, support for Stack blogs was discontinued. Members of the community worked together to continue the blog privately, but still with strong ties to the network that brought us together.

Interested in contributing?

Contact me (Jack B Nimble) or KutuluMike, or CreationEdge (if you can find him) about getting setup. Some ideas for the blog might be:

  • Movie, book, or series reviews
  • Coverage and experiences at Conventions
  • Explanations and research about various fandoms (like the complete history of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse)
  • Or whatever else you might want to write about

And we don't buck the controversial issues like 'Is Starship Troopers pro-facist?' or is the 'Star Wars Canon Guide' the only post anyone ever reads?

Answers to this post will be a backlog of previous posts.

    As an occasional contributor to SciFi SE, I'm confused what exactly this post is for. Is this a community run review blog? – Steven M. Vascellaro Dec 12 '17 at 21:38

    @StevenVascellaro It is the community run blog, not necessarily for reviews (although that is common). Originally it was a part of StackExchange, but they abandoned their community blog support. – Jack B Nimble Dec 12 '17 at 22:50

    @JackBNimble You may want to add some of that information to the post for new users coming here from the main site. – Steven M. Vascellaro Dec 12 '17 at 23:24

    @DCOPTimDowd "Needs more bad movie reviews" Here you go. – Meat Trademark Oct 4 '18 at 16:33
  • @MeatTrademark Your first review is on the A-Team TV show. Clearly you have no idea what you're talking about in terms of quality. #getonthejazz – DCOPTimDowd Oct 5 '18 at 17:21

    Why would you review Predator 2 for your 'bad' movie review? I'm confused... – Valorum May 23 at 17:22
  • @Valorum And you don't mind 2001: A Space Odyssey? – Mithoron Sep 18 at 22:34
  • @Mithoron - It was ok, I suppose. It was no "Predator 2", but it did have its moments. – Valorum Sep 18 at 22:36
