SCIENCE FICTION UNIVERSITY:Truth from Twilight

Charlie W. Starr's picture

Yes. Twilight is not Science Fiction.

However, in this short essay before Science Fiction University goes on Winter Break, we'll use this brief foray into fantasy to illustrate an aspect of heroism that has been shoved aside lately:the concept of the Chaste Hero.

Here is Dr. Starr, after the jump.

REPUBLIBOT WEEKEND MOVIE PREVIEW: Movies Opening 11-20-09

Republibot 1.0's picture

As we get started on this week’s Republibot Weekend Movie Preview round up, I just want to reiterate again, for those just joining us, I‘m not really reviewing anything here. Unless stated otherwise I’ve not seen any of the movies in this “Preview”. The only thing that I am doing is quite thoughtlessly passing judgment on films that are scheduled to open this week and that I haven’t researched at all. I am doing this because I find it interesting and because it makes me laugh, and as long as the Republibot site is okay with me doing this I will keep it up as long as it amuses me. All of the film information in these previews, including the plot summary, has been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). In this week’s installment we are taking quick looks at: Planet 51, New Moon, and The Blind Side – among others….

We’ll get right to it once you make the jump…
