If you’ve been reading this blog, you’ll recall that I featured Robinson’s The Silent City, a few years ago. I’ve reposted it below.
The thing is, Ruairi Robinson does great trailers, but his feature work tends to be a bit lacking. For instance, his last movie, The Last Days On Mars (currently on Netflix) got a 20% on Rottentomatoes.com, though I thought that it deserved better.
Another interesting thing is that the story reminded me of quite a few others, such Melville’s Moby Dick, The Stars, Mine Enemy! by Roy Thomas from The Rampaging Hulk and Abraxas and the Earthman by Rick Vetch, from Marvel’s Epic Illustrated.
The latter two revolving around a hunt for creatures that can best be called ‘space whales.’
