As the summer winds to a close, Dee Perry hosts a summer film call-in show focusing on Science Fiction movies. From Star Trek to District 9it's been a sci-fi summer, so Dee's invited Plain Dealer film critic Julie Washington, Charley Knox, co-founder of the CWRU Science Fiction Fim Marathon and local science fiction writer and blogger Ferrett Steinmetz to pick and pan the summer science fiction selection and share some of their favorite science fiction films of all time. Plus, Dee opens the phones for you to tell us about your favorites.

Love the show.  This topic is close to my heart having loved SciFi for decades.  I’m wondering when some of the newer cyberpunk science fiction will be made into movies (Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash, William Gibson’s Neuromance, etc.)
