I guess 2012 wasn't your theatres year moo1 

Yeah, I'm not sure what happened there rip2 I think I was probably just trying to catch up on films in general that year so brand-new ones weren't as much of a priority. At least I gave my money to a gargantuan flop that desperately needed it moo1

You should've seen the Hunger Games. moo1 It's not anything goundbreaking but it's nice to watch. I remember I didn't see it that year because in the cover said "From the director of Jigsaw" and I was like "bye at that shitfest of series" jj1

I did see the first one later when it came out on DVD/Blu-ray, I thought it was OK, even if it didn't really get started until like an hour in as I recall. I haven't seen any of the sequels though.

btw is rogue one worth watching? I don't really know much about Star Wars..

I thought it was pretty good, although I'd say it has the weakest set of main characters in any Star Wars movie. Have you seen any of them? One of the things about it that wasn't too much of a problem but still kinda bugged me about it was that these little fanservice scenes - it was like "Hey, here's a character you all recognize!", and it'd just stop the movie for like 20 seconds. I loved how they handled Darth Vader though.

Catching Fire is pretty good and honestly better than the first one, but it has a loooow path. Mockingjay is bullshit turned into a movie.

Yeah if you've seen the first one (as in the 1977 movie), you should get Rogue One just fine. It takes place just days before the events of that movie so it works well enough as a companion piece.

Honestly I can't remember every movie I've seen in theatres. I used to watch them often because of a $5 movie day, but now I don't have the time or patience. I'd rather just wait a few months. My school would also play new releases a month after they're released. I starred those.

Off the top of my head, there's more but I honestly can't keep track.

 

Amityville Horror

Django Unchained

Star Trek 

Star Trek : Into The Darkness

Star Trek : Beyond

Spiderman 2

Harry Potter 7 Part II (Can't remember if I watched the others, they play so often on TV, I honestly don't remember where I watched the others)

Avengers 1 & 2

Captain America : Civil War

*Moonlight

I Am Not Your Negro

*Star Wars

The Incredible Hulk (2008)  ($5 movie)

The Simpsons Movie

Guardians of The Galaxy 1 & 2

The Conjuring

Hellboy 2   ($5 movie)

Over The Hedge ($5 movie)

* Gone Girl

* Wanted

Was John Carter good? I have the books but haven’t read them yet. Once I do that, I’ll probably watch the film

It's pretty good, yea. It's not the best paced movie you're ever gonna see, but there's some fun stuff.

 

The books are very important to sci-fi adventure fiction and have some appeal, but it's also hard to overlook the racism rip2 Carter himself is written to have once been a Confederate soldier, for one thing, and in the first book there's one line about how Carter was so well liked that "even the slaves fairly worshipped the ground on which he trod" or something like that dead2

Oh wow rip3 though considering the time period they came out in, I guess I can’t be too shocked by that. I’ve narrowed it down to reading either those next, or American Gods.

A friend of mine likes the show American Gods, but I've neither seen it nor read the books.

 

You might be interested to know of the book Lieut. Gullivar Jones: His Vacation, which came out before A Princess of Mars and is very, very similar, with a military man magically traveling to Mars and meeting a Martian princess. And of course, it's also pretty racist rip2

I haven’t seen the show either, but I own the first season so I wanna get into it. Plus, it’s Neil Gaiman, and I love Coraline, so I have high expectations. Not to mention his friendship with Tori Amos and the way they reference each other in their works so much.

 

I’ll have to check into that. It’s amazing how such a colorful genre has had so many authors who have been so close minded. But I suppose they were a product of their time. sia3

I like Neil Gaiman, particularly the film Coraline, Sandman is good too. I didn't know they were friends.

 

Yeah, in LGJ there's basically two races, the Thither people and the Hither people, one being a race of quivering light-skinned wimps and the other a violent dark-skinned race. 

 

H.P. Lovecraft was also extremely racist as I recall, although unlike many authors that didn't tend to be apparent in his main works too much (although he definitely wrote some awful letters and poems that demonstrated these views), at least to my recollection. But then again he tended to write about totally inhuman alien gods and monsters, so there wasn't much opportunity to make a fantasy race an obvious allegory for black people or anything like that...

It was thought the character Delirium was based on Tori, though her creation actually pre-dates the two of them first meeting. They do bare a similar appearance though.

 

That does sound pretty… shady. It also somewhat reminds me of the two races of humans in The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, but I have yet to read it so it’s possible the similarities end there. 

 

It’s a shame some of these visionaries had these views. Especially because Cthulhu is such a sci-fi staple. That reminds me of how the author of Ender’s Game received backlash for his homophobic views to the point where the cast of the movie adaption had to say themselves that they don’t support said views.

Superficially, yeah, there is a similarity between the two races in both of those books, with one being very lazy and the other being savage, but I think with Wells it wasn't so much a race thing as it was a class thing. The Eloi are basically the elite, who don't have to do or work for anything, and the Morlocks are the underground race who do all the work for the Eloi, but they also devour them. I don't quite exactly recall Wells' physical descriptions of both races, but I don't think it was as egregious as Gullivar Jones. I think they're both sort of light-skinned, flaxen-haired beings, with the Morlocks being more outright albino and uglier.

 

Yeah, I love a lot of the Cthulhu stuff, but Lovecraft was awfully racist even by the standards of his time, especially towards black and Jewish people. And yeah, Orson Scott Card is also astoundingly homophobic. Have you read Ender's Game? What's particularly weird about Card's views on gay people is that Ender is portrayed as a "Third" (in a society where only two children are allowed) and is bullied for it a lot, and we're obviously supposed to empathize with him, and it's not a huge stretch to draw a connection between Ender's experiences and that of a young LGBT person.

I recently purchased The Time Machine, so I’ll read it eventually. I have a bad habit of buying books and forgetting to read them, and I’m wanting to stop doing that and get caught back up.

 

I haven’t read it, but that’s pretty strange. Surely he had to realize people would recognize the connection? Unless he was just that blindsided by his own views. It’s like when I watched Tyra interview one of the leaders of the Westboro Baptist Church and her daughters, and they said they enjoyed watching America’s Next Top Model. I just can’t fathom how these people think. orangu1

It's a good book. From Wells I also really like The Sleeper Awakes, about a man who falls into a coma for about two hundred years and wakes up to find that due to compound interest, he's the wealthiest man on Earth and much of his money has been used to transform the world into a dystopia.

 

I don't own that many books, mostly because my mom was a librarian for about a decade and I could just order whatever I wanted through the province's system, but with the books I have bought I'm sometimes the same way. I was reading The Fountainhead earlier this year and kinda fell off of it, not that I didn't like it (although Rand definitely has some glaring weaknesses as a writer), and I bought Jurassic Park a couple months ago but still haven't read it. Supposedly it's pretty different from the movie.

 

Yeah, I don't get it either. Selective empathy, I suppose. Odd to demonstrate such thoughtfulness in that book and yet be hateful to many people who would identify with what he wrote for legitimate reasons.

That sounds like a good one, I’ll have to look into it.

 

Game of Thrones is what really spearheaded my getting back into reading. I haven’t read Jurassic Park, but I’ve read Michael Crichton’s Eaters of the Dead and seen the film based on it, The 13th Warrior. I also just recently finished the first season of Westworld, based on his film from the 80s, and really enjoyed it. I’m eager to watch season 2, but I don’t have HBO so I have to wait until December for the DVD release.

I haven't read any of Crichton's novels, actually (although I also own Prey), although I have seen many films he was involved with, meaning based directly on one of his novels or his original screenplay, so not counting some Jurassic sequels or Futureworld:

 

The Andromeda Strain 

Westworld

Runaway

Jurassic Park

Congo

Twister

The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Sphere

Timeline

 

I'd also be interested in reading the novels Congo and Sphere, of which the film adaptations were sort of maligned but I still like them. What did you think of The 13th Warrior?

I want to watch the original Westworld film. Although the two aren’t related, your mention of The Lost World: Jurassic Park reminds me of a show I watched when I was little called The Lost World.

 

I like The 13th Warrior a lot. We read and watched it during my junior year, and it was one of my favorites film and books we covered in high school. I found it pretty neat how it was a re-written version of the classic Beowulf. I enjoy when an older story is taken and new elements are added in to give a different perspective, Wicked being another example that I think was well done.

I haven't seen the show and I like the movie, but I'm sure they're very different.

 

This is the show?: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lost_World_(TV_series) I hadn't heard of it, but apparently it's based on the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novel of the same name, which was definitely a big influence on Crichton when writing JP and was the namesake of his second novel, so they actually are sort of related.

 

Yeah, me too. Like I said earlier, I love Coraline, and that's a bit of a twist on Alice in Wonderland. I actually found that movie pretty scary, and I was 13 when I saw it! I actually think it would be pretty terrifying to a younger kid - few things would be scarier than a slightly inverted version of your parent with evil intentions. And it's just vague enough about the Other Mother's origins to have that inherent mysterious creepiness.
