The Knee-Jerk Reaction

Was doing a little internet surfing yesterday and came across a video review of Prometheus. It had the similar complaints I’ve heard in other reviews about the movie not making sense. But it was far more entertaining and, in part two, did some very cool theorizing as to what Ridley Scott might’ve been going for. […]

What’s Wrong With The Wheel?

I think most of us have heard the theories on how many basic plots exist in fiction. Depending on the source you go by, the answer is as simple as one or as many asĀ  . . . well, there isn’t any agreement on how many possibilities there are. And since these possibilities have been […]
