The Geek Twins, where we celebrate sci-fi movies and TV shows. Sci-fi writers have always had a cozy relationship with Hollywood. Their imagination and grand vision have been translated into some fantastic movies. To celebrate them, we present the ten greatest movies based on a sci-fi story.
10. A Clockwork Orange - In a dystopian Britain, a sociopathic youth is subjected to an experiment that makes him physically incapable of violence. Based on the novel of the same name by Anthony Burgess.
9. 1984 - In a dystopian Britain, one man tries to deft the government that monitors and controls all aspects of life. Based on the novel of the same name by George Orwell.
7. Planet of the Apes - When astronauts crash land on another planet, they find simians are dominant and humans treated like beasts. Based on the novel of the same name by Pierre Boulle.
5. Solaris - A spaceship crew orbiting around a mysterious planet finds their dreams coming to life. Based on the novel of the same name by Stanislaw Lem.

CassaStorm Launch and Tour Updates!
CassaStorm launches next Tuesday!
HERE to join the fun.
Thursday I had two surprises! An amazing review from Bob at Beauty in Ruins in which he absolutely nailed everything I was trying to convey in the story. There was also a wonderful tribute from my buddy Roland Yeomans that is sure to make you laugh.
My next tour stop is actually Sunday, and I have the honor of appearing on Anne R Allen’s Blog. Her site is a Writer’s Digest 101 Best Websites for Writers winner, and she brings in some top best-selling authors and professionals. And oh yeah, me!
Next week I will be posting Monday through Friday, updating you on the week’s tour stops and events. And I will be giving away prizes!! One comment per day enters you to win – Cassa magnet, Cassa mug, Cassa mousepad, Cassa poster, and a copy of CassaStorm. So now is not the time to be shy – comment to win!!
And I want to thank all of my hosts and everyone participating in the launch event. I never thought I’d come this far on this crazy journey or experience any kind of real success. You guys helped prove me wrong. Thanks for your support. Your friendship is the greatest treasure and reward.
What movie based on a science fiction story or book would you call the greatest? Ready to joust? Ready to win some stuff? Ready to watch me have an Epic Ninja Meltdown next week…?
