Comprised of testimonies by such genre-oriented Hollywood heavies as Stephen Sommers, Peter Jackson, and John Landis, The Sci-Fi Boys is a true testament to the power of the imagination.

Critic Reviews for The Sci-Fi Boys

All Critics (2) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (1)

  • Doesn't work as even a broad look at sci-fi film history ... nor does it work completely as a tribute to [Forrest] Ackerman thanks to all the additional figures represented.

  • Short and sweet and packed with a real affection for classic sci-fi movie-makers, The Sci-Fi Boys should be a treat to anyone who adores the genre.
