The first car on the moon landed 50 years ago

Half a century ago, astronauts took a car farther off-road than any that had come before it. And only two other cars have managed to do the same. These were NASA's lunar rovers, and as The New York Times notes in its story about the anniversary, they were impressive engineering feats on their own, and they enabled more scientific exploration than would've been possible simply walking on the surface.

Nebulous Dark

Anyone who has seen the Harryhausen-homage Sinbad: The Fifth Voyage will instantly recognize Nebulous Dark as coming from the same director. Indeed, the post-apocalyptic sci-fi actioner has all the trademarks of writer-director-producer-star Shahin Sean Solimon’s fantasy epic. Large-scale action depicted via a combination of practical effects and CGI? Check. Highly detailed and textured monsters whose movements are a bit jerky? Check. An old-fashioned sense of fun that harkens back to classic eras of Hollywood b-movies (in this case, the Atomic Age)? Double-check. While different in structure and style, if one did not enjoy the filmmaker’s sophomore feature from 2014, it is doubtful they’ll have a good time here. However, if one did appreciate the rip-roaring tone of that outing, they’ll be pleased to note that more of the same is offered here.
