Ridley, Say It Ain't So

During my perusing of today's web offerings, I came across this item.

Ridley Scott is probably my favorite modern-day director. (All time, I am still very much a David Lean fan). For the director of "Alien" and "Bladerunner" to proclaim the genre dead is very much a blow to sci-fi fans the world over (myself very much included).

Although, to a certain extent, I think Sir Scott is mistaken. With the explosive popularity of comic book properties, I think one could argue that the sci-fi genre is more popular than ever. It has just evolved (or mutated depending upon your opinion of the comic book genre) from its traditional form of spaceships and space suits.
