The Inside Skinny
What your SFX chums are thinking about...
Editor RIP really sad to hear of the passing of James horner. one of the great movie composers – his Wrath
Of Khan score is one of my all- time faves.
RANTS i’m still hooked, obviously, but Game Of Thrones’ fifth season was its weakest for a while – and a little short on joy. perhaps one day good things will start happening to good people. Home Entertainment Editor
Galactic Nightmare, a 1986 attempt to do a
War Of The Worlds by a bloke in hull, now reissued – http:// bit. ly/ galnight. Delighted itV’s 1979 Quatermass serial is coming to Blu- ray ( 27 July). toby hadoke’s radio play The Dad Who Fell To
Earth is well worth checking out on iplayer.
Art Editor RAVES glad to hear that robert Zemeckis has ruled out a Back To The Future remake. you can’t improve on perfection! and on the subject of 1980s awesomeness; loving Kevin Feige’s idea of the new Spider
Man being like a John hughes movie. By which i presume he means that chevy chase and ally sheedy will have starring roles. result!
Group Ed- in- Chief RAVES the makers of SFX and
Total Film are launching a crime drama quarterly! Fans of Sherlock and
True Detective look out for Crime Scene, in print from september. We’re also bringing back our Comic Heroes mag. Fan of comics and superheroes? get more information on our website soon.
Farewell christopher lee and patrick Macnee.
Scream Queens looks incredible, kind of like
American Horror Story meets post- modern ’ 90s slashers. can a uK broadcaster get on board soon, please?
RANTS With Jurassic World, how come no one’s talking about how the entire disaster is owen’s stupid fault? he’s the idiot who went into the i rex’s cage and let her escape. Wish he’d been eaten.
Production Editor RIP i’ve just counted up the number of sir christopher lee films i’ve seen. it’s 95. i think that says a lot about what i felt about the man, one of the great movie presences in the history of cinema. and we lost patrick Macnee too. again, i’ve seen him a ton of his tV episodes and films and his work meant a lot to me.
Deputy Art Editor RAVES seeing as it’s on the cover it’d be rude not to mention how i’m a tiny bit excited about The X- Files returning. can’t wait! chris pratt and big dinosaurs: Jurassic World had me sold. the remake of The Clangers gets a thumbs- up in my house. lovely narration by Michael palin and wonderfully old school – it’s a delight!
Ad Manager RIP 2015 has a new name. i have started to call it “the Death of heroes’’ – patrick Macnee and the master of darkness, christoper lee. Both were real heroes of mine growing up. i can still remember watching The
Avengers, which became a real family affair. as for christopher lee, he used to scare the living daylights out of me, but i always came back for more. rip gentlemen.
US West Coast Editor RAVES Viva Dc tV! after a sublime first season of
The Flash i’m more than ready for Legends Of Tomorrow, the first superteam show set within the Dc tV universe. Meanwhile, Melissa Benoist is the perfect Kara Zor- El in Supergirl, which looks to bring the Maid of Might to screen life in, at long last, a solo project that’s worthy of her.
