1. I’m a big fan of Abrams, but I never even considered watching this movie…maybe, I will now. I’ve never really thought of myself as good in bad situations, but I once had a paramedic ask me if I was a nurse because I handled things well. I think caring for my Mama made me pretty calm in really upsetting situations.


    I didn’t see Cloverfield, and I’m my own worst enemy when some one says “don’t read this”, but I did see The After Tommorow. I watched and kept thinking people in real life are not this stupid. Their steryotypical “politian who dosn’t beleive scientist even though everything he’s theorising is unfolding in front of you” I could sorta buy. But the people in new York willing to WALK to Mexico or Florida? No. People burning books instead of the wooden furniture or book shelves when everyone knows that wood burns longer and hotter? No. To many stupid people.

    So, You would not try to defeat the monster as Superman?


    Oh, I forgot. Get the book “Lucifer’s Hammer.” It dosn’t have a moster but it’s sorta end of the world theme. Cool stuff.

  4. @Gotham: I learned I wasn’t Superman when I couldn’t keep the World Trade Center up.

    So no, I wouldn’t try defeating the monster. The monster probably wouldn’t know any better.

    I think I’d do better helping the people the monster had hurt. And I can’t help said people if I’m dead myself, so better to find safety.

    That’s my logic, anyway.

    I’ll check out that book, definitely.

    @Alma: I believe that about you. And Abrams directed one of my favorite movies (M: I 3, which blew up lots of stuff and, even better, was awesome), so he’s okay besides Lost, which, contrary to every geeky thing about me, I’ve never actually checked out.


    Sorry. I was just trying to make a comic book joke.

    I think most of us imagine us as keeping a cool head in trying situations. Hopefully most people won’t have to find out if it’s true or not.

    You can get it on Amazon.com How does that keep coming up in your blogs?
