With the exception of "The Day the Earth Sood Still" and "2001- A Space Odyssey" (both certifiable classics) I tend to stay away from Science Fiction. If I want fantasy I'll stick to John Wayne in the US Cavalry or early US TV westerns like "Have Gun, Will Travel." And no, I have not seen any of the StarTrek or Star Wars movies. Humbug!

Monster bedroom calathea. For scale, that's a mid tower computer on the floor.
