Christopher Webster [Celluloid 11.05.08] news



CNN is reporting some sad sad news this morning. Michael Crichton, one of the most influential science fiction authors of my our time, has died of Cancer at the age of 66. What a blow, particularly in light of the fact that his fight was not public.

I grew up on Crichton. Obviously the Jurassic Park team up with him and Spielberg blew everyone away, but I remember watching and loving all the awesome unsung films he directed when I was just a kid. Films like Looker, Coma, and of course Westworld. As a writer he was responsible for The Andromeda Strain, Sphere, Twister, Congo, Terminal Man, 13th Warrior, Timeline, the list of great works goes on and on.


Sad day. Now go watch Coma and Robert Wise's Andromeda Strain.
