SORT BY Relevancy
On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, The Roundtable reviews X-Men: Days of Future Past! Is it the best X-Men film yet? Is it the best X-Men Bryan Singer has ever made? Is it true to the classic Chris Claremont story arc? Is it just as good as, or possibly even better than, X-Men: First Class? Does it successfully manage to juxtapose the cast of the Singer films with that of the lone Matthew Vaughn film? Does Quicksilver manage to be the film’s breakout star? Should the franchise be allowed to continue on its current course? Would it better off in the hands of Marvel Studios and Disney?
We’ll also be celebrating the 35th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s Sci-Fi/horror classic, Alien! Is it as much of a watershed film as Star Wars? In what ways did it change the landscape of modern science fiction films? Is it still one of the scariest films ever made? Is the Xenomorph the most uniquely conceived and designed movie monster of all-time? Is Alien truly the best film of its respective franchise? Is Warrant Officer Ellen Ripley the greatest heroine in movie history?
We’ll also be celebrating the 30th anniversary of Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom along with the 25th anniversary of Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade! Is it time to reconsider Temple of Doom’s place in the Indiana Jones quadrilogy? Could it actually be the most underappreciated film of the franchise? Did the Last Crusade truly get the franchise back on track? Might it actually be the most neutered and docile of all the Indiana Jones films? Did Lucas and Spielberg go overboard in trying to make amends for the darkness and cruelty of Temple of Doom?
This week Hank and Nash discuss the delightful Swiss Surrealist, Hans Rudolf "H.R" Giger. The dearly departed leaves behind a magnificient legacy, specializing in morbid fantasy, biomechanical bizzarities and a rather macarbe look at the bleak industrialized future, H.R Giger shall stand permanently as an icon of the strange.
Andy Pickford’s musical associations began at the age of four emulating tunes on his grandmother’s piano. Hearing synthesizer music fired Andy’s imagination. In 1981, Andy got his first monophonic synthesizer. Coupled up with a cassette deck and a reel-to-reel, Andy started composing synth music. Around 1983, Andy set about recording a cassette album called Linear Functions under the name of Kris McKuen.
In 1992 a demo of Andy’s work was sent to Ashley Franklin at BBC Radio Derby where he got his first break on the now legendary ‘Soundscapes’ programme. Early 1993, Replicant began. This album, dedicated to the artist Ian Mullis who was responsible for the original Linear Functions album sleeve,
Andy has collaborated with the likes of Ian Boddy, Asana and Paul Nagle under the pseudonym Binar and Spank, The Dark Monkey. He has now decided to throw himself back into his music again with re-mastered album material, plus re-releases of both Xenomorph and Nemesis.
