Random Thought: Time Travelling

Last night I was having some trouble sleeping and I started to think about time travelling. I was thinking that if it were possible in the future and if it were easily accessible (like it is in the movies), then how come I haven't met my future self yet?

I came up with a few reasons:
  • My future self chose to meet me when I was too young to recognize or comprehend who he was.
  • My future self was too old to recognize.
  • The intergalactic robotic war in the future had left my future self so disfigured, I was rendered unrecognizable to my current self.
  • My future self used a memory clearing device on my current self thus removing the event from my memories (like in Men In Black).
  • My future self dies before the technology is widely available to the public.
  • The Space/Time Lords of the future demand that all time travellers wear either a cloaking device or a temporary full body transformation device when travelling to the past.

I know, I'm a geek who has watched one too many movies. But it begs the question, if it were possible to meet a version of yourself 30 years from now, what would you ask him/her? Or what do you think your future self would like to tell your current self?

You know, I never thought of that. But now that I think of it
I'm not even sure I would choose to
Time travel in the future. Still- it,s
An intriguing thought.

If I could ask my future self a question, it would be something along the lines of when did they stop making those terrible American Pie spinoffs and sequels?

Seriously though, I'd probably want to know about any crisis' that had befallen mankind in that time frame or something.

Interesting question... usually I think I would rather go BACK in time and not make some of my mistakes.

The Science of God

Not too long ago, two of my friends had posted their thoughts on evolution and creationism. Both friends shared similar sentiments on the topic (you can view Skylar's here and Keith's here). Coincidence or not, shortly before they made their postings, I purchased a book called The Science of God by Dr. Gerald Schroeder, which was based on the same topic. Unfortunately, at the time of my friend's postings, I had not finished the book, but now I have.

In The Science of God, Schroeder attempts to debunk the dichotomy that exists between science/evolution and creationism. He tries to show that there can exist a duality between the two and that discoveries in science actually prove the story of creation in the bible.

The book can be roughly divided into three categories that being the concepts of time, the second with the biology of evolution, and lastly the concept of free will.

In describing time, he focuses on the 6 days that are explained in the beginning of Genesis. Duri…

DTV Madness: Jack Brooks - M.S. and Gingerdead Man 2

Okay, honestly, I think this will be the last DTV post for a while. One man can only take so much shit. I'm only human, I have feelings too. These two movies pushed my limit. I'm going to be in DTV-detox for the next month or so.

Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer

I thought that with a title like this, it couldn't fail. I thought that with a poster like they had, it couldn't fail. Then I realized something... I failed. I failed in thinking that this movie had any hope.

I was expecting some fun horror, mixed with comedy in sort of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer kind of fashion with a bumbling hero and smart quips. I mean, with a title like Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, was I wrong in expecting a variety of monsters get slayed as the title suggests?

It didn't help much that the monsters looked uber cheesy. They looked like something right out of a Power Rangers episode. But to their credit, at least they stuck with practical make-up and effects rather than CG.

The movie its…

MAX PAYNE was oh so PAYNEFUL!!!

What a failure this was. An EPIC FAILURE~! And I'll tell you why. This movie had everything going for it which was why it made the failure seem so huge. It had star power. It had a very competent director. The visual style was there. It had a simple storyline... a storyline that was basically fuck-proof because it's so basic. The effects (when there were any) were also pretty great. So where did they go wrong?

Pacing.

If the first two-thirds of the film was like the last third, I think it would have been a fine film. Not great by any means, but fine. I mean, there was hardly any action in the first hour. It was all talk and build up. Every 5 minutes I was saying to myself, "okay, something cool is gonna happen now". But it never came. I think had they added 2 or 3 big action sequences during that hour, that it would have helped the film breathe and flow better. I mean, didn't they realize that the source material was an action game?

Max Payne is based…
