Love has many components – physical attraction, pheromones, appreciation of similarities and differences, and so on.

In Netflix’s Altered Carbon, where bodies (sleeves) can be replaced/exchanged by simply moving one’s digitally recorded soul (stacks) into a new sleeve, how does love even work?

In a new video, the series creator and stars take a look at love on Altered Carbon.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Altered Carbon Is Addictive B-Movie-Style Fun!

You can see elements of other science fiction classics in Altered Carbon – protagonist wakes up after hundreds of year (Samurai Jack); those who can afford it can live forever via imprinting their souls on ‘stacks,’ which then be inserted into the body (called a sleeve) of one’s choosing (Ghost in the Shell) and a setting very similar to Blade Runner – but even when a series wears its influences on its (ahem) sleeves, it can still be something bigger, smaller or equal to those influences.

Altered Carbon is mostly equal – and a lot of fun.

Terminator Genisys Poster

Here’s an interesting concept: James Cameron has seen Terminator Genesys – and he really liked it! He liked it enough to make a video talking about it.

In the video he addresses the way the film, while ‘being respectful of the first two films,’ goes its own direction. He mentions some of the big time spoilers that have already been given in the trailers and loved them. Check out his video after the jump.

Terminstor Genisys opens July 1st.

Molten Trailer: Terminator: Genisys!

Terminator Genisys Teaser Poster

It’s here! The first trailer for Terminator: Genisys looks like the movie is playing fast and loose with the rules (how can Sarah Connor know about timelines that no longer exist?), but it has the propulsive feel of James Cameron’s Terminator films – especially in the humor.

Emilia Clarke makes a very interesting Sarah Connor and, let’s face it, playing a terminator is what Arnold Schwarzenegger was meant to do. Even Jai Courtney comes out of it looking pretty good.

Check out the unexpectedly cool trailer following the jump.
