; Many of those who bought Arkham Knight at launch are probably going to be wrapping things up this week, because most people aren’t crazy enough to beat it in three days like me so I could write this post. After that, however, outside of a few DLCs, the Arkham series will [...]

3m45s - Spies Like Us (1985). I did not know this was originally going to be a Aykroyd/Belushi jam. Ultimately made with Chevy Chase as proxy for John.

Pleasantly reminded me of this film while watching Jurassic World this past weekend.

The sheer logistics and operating expenses of running a theme park whether it's Westworld or JW I find even more fascinating than when their assets go berserk.

I found nearly as much relevance with this film in JW as I found in the original Jurassic Park.

Trust me. You don't want a "true to life" short form biopic about someone you already know too much about (e.g. Steve Jobs).

You want a self-aware long form legend, TOTALLY exaggerated, & EPICALLY fictionalized of lesser known and made up characters and events from the "near dawn" of the personal computer era.

(And I don't care what anyone says. Season 1 is awesome.)

Maybe this is a generational thing? It seems Jay holds the original Jurassic Park much more sacred than Mike.

Is it presumptuous to believe Mike's got about 10 years on Jay, and he may have been about the "prime" age for JP to be a more "biblical" experience?

+Graeme Green  Thank you.  It's never the duty of the audience to accommodate the movie.  The film's job is to put the viewer in the right attitude to enjoy it.  That's kind of, you know, the entire point of art.

Matt Damon continuing his love for playing abandoned astronauts.

the latter half/end of the book was practically a screenplay for a movie.

Getting a jingle stuck in your head is actually a noteworthy anachronism, since jingles are rarely (if ever?) employed anymore.

Jingles were from a time where advertising campaigns were often tied to broadcast radio. 

My kids often catch me singing a jingle for Kit Kat or Band-Aids and ask if I made them up or how I learned "The Song" and I have to explain to them name brands used to often have songs (aka jingles) written specifically for a product.

It's given me a deeper appreciation for 1993's Demolition Man:

"Wall-to-wall mini-tunes. You called them 'commercials.'"

Notice when the ride starts there are 4 passengers, but by the end, there is only 1. This is because 3 of them were successfully transported to another dimension. (And by "another dimension," I mean the nearest toilet to commence biospill.)

+richard kelley- Sometimes "Code V" doesn't provide appropriate context. ;)

I haven't seen Fury Road yet. I am sure I will like it immensely. However, there's plenty of truths in this article as there are plenty of truths in Tomorrowland (of which I thoroughly and unabashedly enjoyed- Brad Bird is a storytelling genius.) and- most likely- plenty of truths in Fury Road.

That being said, and for this article, you could very well substitute FR with any apocalyptic, post-/proto-/pseudo-apocalyptic themed film or cultural artifact out there.

However, as much as I enjoyed Tomorrowland, I cannot recommend it because it does come off as bit too sweet and preachy for contemporary audiences.

Kat Kourbeti on how Tomorrowland's bottom line informed her viewing of Mad Max: Fury Road... (SPOILER WARNING for both films within.) There's something I need to get off my chest: I didn't really l...

We're between the 70th anniversary of V-E & V-J day.
