Re: Devs

not as futuristic as Minority Report. The story centerpiece tech is infinitely beyond minority report...I hated the idea of a drug that granted them precognition.

Devs is cerebral. Mega beings.

Re: Devs

It isn't a quantum wave collapser in Devs, it is a multiverse thing...which is a funny major subplot point. It is the opposite of any kind of quantum observability magic dust honestly.... Basically the big Whoah is a complete simulation of all reality with a 1-second in the future view, so chaining ...

Re: Devs

The Shape of Water shares many themes with the director's earlier "Pan's Labyrinth" so you are wrong about worrying about plagiarism. Sounds like Devs isn't for you. The computation whoah doesn't hit until 6,7, and 8. I would consider all of Asimov's positronic brains to be of the same "magic comput...

Re: Devs

I think Devs was amazing. Lifetime top 10 sci-fi. The cliffhanger before the final episode was amazing.

Westworld Season 3

Westworld Seasons 1 and 2 are great. Solid, classic American Sci-fi legacy drawing from 70's movies, Michael Crichton. Tonight's Season 3 Ep 5 ....it is interesting and might appeal to people who really liked all of the Tipharean/Zalem Brain Bio-chip drama. Westworld in general is an extremely compl...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 036 (part 1) Is out!

I think Mars is a solid Arc so far. I didn't like the Vampire chapters at first. I am in no hurry for anything in Gunnm.

I want 6-9+ tankoubans worth of Panzer Kunst Chunin Exams please. We are here now and it is awesome!

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 034 (part 3) Is out!

It will be better as a fast read when it is done and you read it in one big whack. The Vampire era was like that for me...the dark times when I kind of stopped reading the monthlies...then it was among my favorite parts upon the collection.

I was surprised that the forum didn't kind of pop with the movie. The movie had fans in spite of it locking out a sequel. (REBOOT!!!) None of the baby Alita stuff feels like it will grab new fans. I think when we get to Panzer Kunst chonin exam or whatever, whenever that is; I think it will pick up....

Re: Because cyberoptics are overeavaluated

it could be the nerve or a brain issue. I think nerve would be just as replaceable as an eye, but there might be a framework required too....you wouldn't be able to just pop in a new eyeball.

Re: A colossal error or a deliberate change in the story? (Alita: Battle Angel)

The Secret of Tiphares is the best moment of the entire series. It is the point of the entire series and its ramifications are still unfolding 20 years later (not motorball). The movie is a disaster and hoping for a reboot is our best hope. Hope for a sequel feels pointless at this point, given the ...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

The secret of Tiphares is HANDS DOWN the biggest story POW in the series (all everything for me). I accept change but dang if I don't get the closed options via what we know about movie Nova.

Pray for reboot...

or buy the video on demand and/or bluray? I think Disney isn't going to make a cyber princess epic where the start of act 3 will always be Alita accepting that she is a gruesome killing machine. I think on the line of sequel money, might be best spent as a refactor/reboot to some 10 episode premium ...

The timing is right to just end it based on the framework he delivered over 20 years ago for the video game. That would suck, because Panzer Kunst Junior High plus more Erica would be awesome but ... this forum really pointed out that there isn't enough of a backstory to deliver a Dasein that is bot...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

I am worried that he basically wrapped up the Alita origin which he had laid out in the video game and now he we're done.
