So, I got to watch Thor: The Dark World over the winter break, in addition to all the other movies.
I think it’s a mixed-bag, plot-wise. But, you know, there was good humor and explosions, so it was at least somewhat okay.
And, as ever, much spoilers.
So, I finally got around to seeing Blade Runner over the holiday break. It’s a classic science fiction film, based on the novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep,” so seeing it after the reference made to it in The Android’s Dream seems appropriate.
That said, I had less fun with this movie than I expected. So here goes.
If you don’t want to read the rest of this post, here’s a summary: yeeeeeeees. More please.
In other news, I watched Marvel’s Agent Carter, the short series that will be running until Agents of SHIELD comes back. And it was fun.
Oops! Looks like I posted these out of order. Oh, well…
Guardians of the Galaxy movie was entertaining.
That said… I’m not sure where even to begin with this one. I’m not sure there’s much point in addressing the science, since the science isn’t the point…
And, as ever, spoilers.
The Android’s Dream is a novel by John Scalzi.
One of my brothers compares its contents to the hijinks that frequently feature in Douglas Adams’ work, and I think I agree with that assessment.
The story itself is a bit predictable (I saw most of the ending coming), but the absurdity goes up to eleven. It’s worth a read.
