After 83 minutes, we still don’t know, either, but at least it has become clear this is one of those films that “defies categorization” by identifying with a marketable genre it’s […]

The 10 Best Science Fiction Films of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) In a surprising turn of events, stitching together a list of the greatest science fiction movies from the past ten years proved to be harder than I initially assessed. The reason, however, isn’t because there weren’t enough sci-fi standouts to conjure up a list, but rather, quite the opposite. Upon careful consideration, it turns out that there is a plethora of noteworthy under-seen gems, making the real challenge whittling down this lis...

Revival Cycles ‘Birdcage BMW’

Words by Justin Benson. Revival Cycles’ latest build; “The Birdcage”, at first glance – looks to be the work of a madman. Showcasing BMW’s newest prototype boxer engine, the frame is entirely comprised of titanium (a first for the Revival team), made up of 150 separate pieces, taking a full 2 weeks, day and night, to finish welding. Almost every piece on the bike was fabricated in house, with great attention paid to design, function, and most importantly – weight. The asymmetrical frame of “Th...
