Space Brains – Podcast

Space Brains is a fortnightly podcast that discusses what is good and what is great about science fiction movies.
Hosts Surrey Hughes and Mark Regan love science fiction films and aim to share that love with the audience. This is not a show that dishes dirt or talks to a negative point.
 
‘Science-brain’ Surrey, is a published author and IT professional. ‘Cinema-brain’ Mark, is a filmmaker and media teacher. Together they share the science and cinematic elements of each movie they review.
 
The podcast explores classic, recent, blockbuster and cult films. The hosts occasionally interview special guests such as Hamad AlSarraf who wrote and directed “In Paradox” and Luke Sparke, writer/director of “Occupation” and “Occupation: Rainfall”.
 
The space brains are from a wondrous and heart-warming part of the galaxy and hence they joy-watch. This means when they watch science fiction films, they deliberately look for the positives and try to get the most from the experience they can.
 
Space Brains began in 2019. All episodes are recorded, edited and published in Mandurah, Western Australia.

Episode – 55 – Metropolis

Metropolis

Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist science-fiction drama film directed by Fritz Lang. Written by Thea von Harbou in collaboration with Lang, it stars Gustav Fröhlich, Alfred Abel, Rudolf Klein-Rogge, and Brigitte Helm. Erich Pommer produced it in the Babelsberg Studios for Universum Film A.G. The silent film is regarded as a pioneering science-fiction movie, being among the first feature-length movies of that genre.

 

This is a challenging film for some as it is a silent feature, however we certainly talk a lot about it. The Space Brains discuss the central themes, the conflict with Nazi Germany, the edited versions and the strong message of hope at the core. On the science side of things, we discuss real-life examples of underground cities and underground constructions.
