Director Alex Proyas’ first film after The Crow, the movie is a mind bend of lost memories and a city with no sun that moves every night. Released in 1998, it was nominated for Hugo and Saturn awards.
Featuring a young man who escapes a bizarre accident and has visions of a giant bunny, this film is good until the end–then it becomes brilliant. It won many awards and became a midnight showing staple.
Music Albums -
One of the best-selling albums of all time at twelve times Platinum, it produced seven hits. It also heralded the return of drummer Rick Allen and was the last album before Steve Clark died.
Science Fiction Books –
The novel that inspired the classic film Blade Runner, it was nominated for a Nebula and won a Locus award. Published in 1968, it’s been adapted to radio, theater, comics, and more.
The first of the Dragonriders of Pern series, it was the first science fiction book to appear on the New York Times Best Seller list in 1968. It also won both the Nebula and Hugo for McCaffrey, the first time either was claimed by a woman.

Blastr: the X-Files finale almost crossed over with West Wing.
"We had hoped to use the West Wing's Oval Office set. And in fact, we'd even at one point considered asking Martin Sheen who played the president on the West Wing to do this scene, which would have been a nice sort of wink."
Really glad they didn’t!
