Wow... welcome to the trailer park

I would like to point out, to the few people like myself who haven't heard of it, the upcoming movie Children of Men.

This is the sort of intelligent SF movie that rarely gets made, and with the number of high-ish profile names attached, we should hopefully have a renaissance of thoughtful SF movies that don't deal with aliens, high-tech gun fights, or kung-fu wire-work. If this is a good film, then I suspect that the post-Star Wars SF film may indeed raise the genre out of the matinee.

Of course, leave it to the French to make bang-bang stylish with Renaissance, an incredibly stylish CG animated SF action movie. Now, at least if my mind isn't tickled by Children of Men, my eye will be with this one.

Then there's the duel of the dueling illusionist movies, The Prestige and The Illusionist. Who'd have thought there'd be a conflict in that niche genre.

And, finally, there's Darren Aranofsky's The Fountain. Could be good, but it could also be his version of The Cell.
