After having a pretty hectic day (200+ miles traveling to client sites, note the plural and 3 mile run in the evening) I spent this evening catching up on TV and web. A site I have been trying to follow and failing to keep up with the cascade of posts is www.io9.com
Two such posts is the one on the comparison between the US and Japanese comicbook adaptions of Star Wars. Japan wins hands down if you ask me. ( http://www.starwars.com/eu/lit/comics/f ... index.html
). Second is the link to http://www.sci-fi-london.com/festival/2008/48hour/
which is a project to create a SiFi movie in 48 hours.
Last but not least is the Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chroniclesdrinking game!
check it out over at http://io9.com/362813/save-sarah-connor ... ting-drunk
or just read on below...Take a swig of beer every time:
Summer Glau tilts her head to one side and stares intently.
Thomas Dekker looks at the ground like a whipped puppy.
Brian Austin Green punches a wall or some other surface.
One of the high school kids looks at Summer Glau funny.
We see Lena Headey exercising.
Someone mentions "The Turk."
Lena Headey has a bad dream. (Three swigs if she decides to take action based on it.)
Someone tells John Connor that he's not the heroic "Future John" yet.
Summer Glau repeats something someone has just said to her, in a robotic monotone.Drink a whole shot every time:
Sarah Connor has a voice-over where she quotes from literature or history, or talks about wise old sayings.
Summer Glau says something dorky, like "Thank you for explaining." Or tries to talk like a cool kid and fails.
FBI Agent Ellison reads, or quotes, from the Bible.
A Terminator other than Summer Glau is in a scene, and doesn't commit any violence.
John Connor has a surrogate-dad moment with Brian Austin Green or his ex-step-dad.
John Connor decides to prove he's a hero by doing something completely half-cocked.Drink a healthy swig of beer and a whole shot whenever:
Another Terminator gets its skin ripped off, or actually gets deactivated, but Summer Glau walks away without a scratch.
There's a discussion of whether Summer Glau has a soul.
Sarah Connor screams at her son, or cries.
FBI Agent Ellison starts acting like he believes in the Terminators.
