2015/05/24 Leave a comment

Agents of SHIELD recently wrapped up its second season.

And there was much epicness.

Thus, a discussion.  Also, all the spoilers for the second season.

This is still the logo.

Science Fiction Round 43: The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

2015/05/16 1 comment

This book was amazing.  It’s not notable enough (yet?) to have its own page on Wikipedia, but here’s somebody else’s review, and here’s the author.

The prose is light, but the ideas are dense.  It’s worth a read.

And, yes, spoilers.

I'm pretty sure that this picture-in-picture thing doesn't actually happen in the novel.

Science Fiction Round 42: The Terminator

As it happens, yes, the first time I’d seen The Terminator was actually within the last month.

Unless you count that time years ago, when all I saw was the last ten minutes.  (I don’t think that counts.)

Given that the movie is iconic, and from 1984, I’m a bit behind the times.  But I’ve got a few thoughts to add.

The Terminator movie poster must, naturally, feature Schwezenegger as the Terminator.  "I'll be back [for lots of sequels]."

Superheroes Round 17: Gone Avengin’

This post had to happen.  I just saw The Avengers: Age of Ultron, and it was excellent.

It was also a classic superheroes movie, and you know what that means.  (In case you don’t — it means physics has taken an extended vacation.)

Also: all the spoilers!  So, if you haven’t seen the movie, go do that first.

But I will say: Joss Whedon, trolling level expert.

Yes, all these characters did show up in the movie.
