The “G-Man” is back.  Gareth Edwards is back after compiling the longest set of shows on a topic highway to mars is likely to ever see, to talk the movie “The Giver”.  This is a movie that wasn’t super successful but it’s got a lot going for it, especially with the teenage dystopian future genre being so maxed out.

Set in a post war future earth, this movie explores what it is to be human through the lens of a world that has given away it’s humanity in exchange for peace.  It’s thoughtful and mostly well executed, even if the ending is a little too contrived.  That does not detract from the fact this movie makes a serious attempt at some hard core science fiction and human dilemmas.  Enjoyed the movie and especially enjoyed catching up with Gareth.  Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy here we come.

Highway To Mars

Welcome to Martian Central, please take a ticket, the sheep ray will be with you shortly. Highway to Mars was created by Author Stefan Sawynok as an excuse to ramble his way through Science Fiction that he liked and to shine a light on things such as books that don't get covered all that often in fandom. Mostly covers British and American sci-fi but occasionally steps out to cover pieces from around the world. There is so much Sci-fi out there and so little time. :)
