    Good that a black sf writer is getting some recognition...

    Bad if your insights begin and end with just one of them...

    There are others...

    Also be cautious and wary of white establishment movie takes on the future:

    Their takes on the present are as self serving ad naseum..

    I'm a sf fan from way back when, i.e., and-- at best--those sf themed-- movies produced in Hollywood-- tend to be amusing as entertainment, though their storylines etc. watered down, for mass marketing ploys...

    Yes, the Terminator and Matrix films had or have their moments, but the good stuff remains what got printed in books...

    FYI...
