When update for August 2011

Updated tentative schedule for next month:

Aug. 05 the new planet of the apes opens, hope to have a quick review up shortly after…
Aug. 06 what – what is science fiction, which came first and why it is important…
Aug. 13 Mahabharata – the indian epic that could be the oldest example of science fiction…
Aug. 19 fright night, conan the barbarian, double remake double feature, 0% originality 50% worst doctor 50% worst chekov, hopes are not high…
Aug. 20 The Birds – aristophanes comedic play could also be a strong contender for the beginning of science fiction
Aug. 26 don’t be afraid of the dark, this actually looks like a cool sorta movie, a bit like the others, which was surprisingly good, could redeem the whole month for movies…
Aug. 27 Ramayana – a return to india to finish out the month and mark the winner
Aug. 29 when – another schedule update…
Sep. 03 Metamorphoses – ovid’s history (sort of) of the world part one…

…this is, mostly, wishful thinking on my part, but as schedules go the hardest part is getting through Mahabharata (it’s really long…) the rest should be easy.
