Terminator Genisys

Why am I watching this movie?

No offense to anyone who likes it, or who finds it a perfectly acceptable summer action flick. But Terminator comes from one of the most respected cinematic lineages around. It launched James Cameron and T2 is pretty much the Mitochondrial Eve of every summer blockbuster made these days. So why do the repeated attempts at a Terminator franchise seem so pointless?


Seeing What We Can't Even See: The Pluto Fly-By

I don't care if you think it's not a "real" planet, distant little Pluto is finally getting its day in the sun as New Horizons sends back data which exceeds the hopes of NASA.


EDITORIAL: It is not sinful to go into space

The other day I was talking to a very Christian guy who felt the whole Pluto thing was a complete and utter waste of time. He said that the Bible mentioned no life in outer space, and it takes place entirely on earth, which means that none of that stuff is of any consequence.


Falling Skies: "Hatchlings" (Season 5, Episode 3)

I'm kind of miffed tonight. Falling Skies managed to craft a plot arc that has potential, only to dispense with it as an afterthought in order to stumble around with yet another incompetent Espheni overlord. Oh, well. At least they're promising to leave the current dramatically strip-mined locale behind by the end. I never thought I'd say this, but hooray for Fayetteville!

North Carolina, that is. Sorry Arkansas.
