Recently, I've been wondering how Hollywood gets their ideas for Science Fiction movies. Depressingly, I'm pretty sure they get 'em from a combination of crappy old 80s cartoons, comic books, and things they find written on the walls in public restrooms.
Not that there's anything wrong with loitering around public restrooms waiting for inspiration to hit. Certainly that worked out well for George Michael, and, hey, the second half of his career has been golden, right? Right?
