What your SFX chums are think­ing about...

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Welcome - RAVES this month in be­ing way be­hind on things: car­toons. i have been glued to adult swim’s de­light­ful Rick And Morty, and pen­del­ton Ward space ad­ven­ture Bravest War­riors. RANTS the end of Game Of Thrones sea­son five: loved it. But that short broad­cast d

Richard Ed­wards

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

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!

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.

Cather­ine Kirk­patrick

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!

Adrian Hill

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.

Joe­sph McCabe

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.
