And You Call Yourself a Scientist!

And You Call Yourself a Scientist! is a scientist's view of science and scientists in science fiction, horror and B-movies. Or, as the intro says:
Welcome to a mad scientist's views on other mad scientists. And mad doctors, monsters, murderers, psychopaths, ghosts, freaks, weirdos and things that go bump all hours of the night and day.
There is a whole section of reviews of science fiction movies with an emphasis on sci-fi horror, from Spanish movie Accióne Mutante * to the Japanese movie Yosai Gorasu, and has selections from most of the 20th century, from the 1910 version of Frankenstein to the 2003 movie Clearwater. Unfortunately, not many recent films are on the list, but that's not an issue if you are looking for something to watch in the comfort of your own home rather than in the theater.

* From the synopsis: "Set in the not-too-distant future, Acción Mutante posits a world where the desire for physical perfection has spawned a ruling class of the most wealthy and beautiful; where robots do most of the actual work while the "real" people spend their time striving to join the elite; and where anyone not meeting the extreme physical ideal is shunned and outcast. Rising up in opposition is the terrorist group, Mutant Action, which consists wholly of the physically and mentally disabled."
