Science Fiction & Fantasy Musings

Movies So some interesting (I think) science fiction movies appear to be on their way. Eve, if they're cheesy at least it means somebody in Hollywood is trying to be somewhat original ([!]). Battleship- A science fiction twisted version of the classic board game. Okay, not original in that it is a game but what the hell, better than remakes of movies I saw as a kid, and perpetually remaking Batman every other month. Don't get me wrong, the remake of Clash of the Titans was decent (particularly the f/x) but otherwise...meh. Cowboys and Aliens- I give credit for the...

Part of me says yes given I liked the SoT series, but... I don't know. I think I might. Fanfic Writing *shakes fist* I will finish you! Basically my LotS fic "Blood in the Bones" is going to be around 18-20 chapters. At least that's what I've outlined out. Some might get cut if they turn out to extraneous to the story. I...
