Fantasy Casting: A Greater Duty

While it’s unlikely that the Galaxy Ascendant series will ever be adapted for film, for numerous reasons (though one never knows for certain!), I’d be a liar if I said I never thought about what that might look like. I’m sure pretty much every author has. So, as I’ve seen several others do, I’m going toContinue reading “Fantasy Casting: A Greater Duty”

Women Crying During Wonder Woman’s Fight Scenes, and the Problem with Modern Priorities

So, Wonder Woman was a good movie. In my opinion, a very good one, and definitely one of my favorite superhero movies of all time, largely because it maintained a good balance, in my view, between being s serious story but also remaining optimistic and fun (unlike previous DC movies.) Also, having a main character who wantedContinue reading “Women Crying During Wonder Woman’s Fight Scenes, and the Problem with Modern Priorities”

Writing Talk: Interplanetary Civilizations (Case Study: The Galactic Alliance) Part 2

In Part 1 of this short series of posts, I talked about the first part of Planetary Defense Command’s series of posts about galactic empires, or interplanetary civilizations in general, where he went into actual science to look at how densely populated a galaxy would theoretically be, and some of the ramifications of this, andContinue reading “Writing Talk: Interplanetary Civilizations (Case Study: The Galactic Alliance) Part 2”

Writing Talk: Interplanetary Civilizations (Case Study: the Galactic Alliance) Part 1

Recently, a set of blog posts over at Planetary Defense Command was brought to my attention, and before I knew it I’d read all four parts. The posts in questions, the first of which is linked here (and each part has a link to the next in the series) discusses a very interesting sci-fi relatedContinue reading “Writing Talk: Interplanetary Civilizations (Case Study: the Galactic Alliance) Part 1”

Movie Review: Mythica: The Necromancer

Yes, I am (finally) back! It’s been far, far too long since I’ve posted anything up here, but I at least have some good reasons, namely completing my 45,000 word Master’s Thesis, as well as working to get things in order for an intercontinental move coming up in August–more on that at a later date.Continue reading “Movie Review: Mythica: The Necromancer”

Movie Review: Mythica: The Darkspore

As promised, here is my review of Mythica: The Darkspore, the second movie in Arrowstorm Entertainment’s Mythica series. Full disclosure, I did back Mythica 2 on Kickstarter, as I did the first movie in the series. As I mentioned in my previous review, I don’t intend to make straight-up movie reviews a regular thing here,Continue reading “Movie Review: Mythica: The Darkspore”

Movie Review: Mythica: A Quest for Heroes

Something new! (And my second post in two weeks!) I’ve written about movies before, but those were called Learning From Movies. Reason being, they were movies that had some good or worthwhile aspects, but overall weren’t ‘good’ movies. With those posts, I briefly reviewed the movies, then talked about the good in them, which oneContinue reading “Movie Review: Mythica: A Quest for Heroes”

Learning From Movies: Snow White and the Huntsman

For my second Learning From Movies post, I’ll be looking at a fantasy movie, a bit of a change from last time’s Prometheus. This time, I will talk about what I found interesting and useful for my writing in the movie Snow White and the Huntsman. This was one of those movies that I sawContinue reading “Learning From Movies: Snow White and the Huntsman”

I’m back! Also, Learning From Movies: Prometheus

It’s been far too long. Almost two months, in fact. It’s partially my fault, but at the same time not. Basically, finals happened. And for a number of reasons, this finals season was the hardest one I’ve had in a while (partially due to my lack of desire to do anything school related). But nowContinue reading “I’m back! Also, Learning From Movies: Prometheus”
