    July 25, 2012 12:30 pm Congrats Mr. Wiebe, another great book. After this, Green Wake, Peter Panzerfaust, Grim Reaper (havent read Intrepids but will definitely pick it up) you have solidified yourself as a writer that i will blindly purchase a book from as long as your name is attached. Thank you, sir. I hope you come to Chicago for any convention sometime so that I can shake your hand.

    June 23, 2012 10:02 am Agreed with Ex Machina, fantastic story and art. Also would recommend Pride of Baghdad, graphic novel about a pride of lions turned loose from a zoo trying to survive during wartime.
    June 11, 2012 6:02 am http://cavalorn.livejournal.com/584135.html#cutid1 Really interesting article that I've seen spreading around. Good read on analyzing the allegories and themes of the film.
    June 10, 2012 5:11 pm I think or at least hope you guys, including me, are in the majority. I was disappointed because it felt trimmed. Very similar to the theatrical cut of Kingdom of Heaven. Didnt like theatrical cut of that either but i loved the extended.
    June 10, 2012 2:54 pm Actually now that ive had some time to cool down. im starting to come around on it. @turdsandwich, good points and yes it does help. I also didnt know sequels were planned (ive been on media blackout for this one.) sorry if my initial reactions came off as gripe-y. I had this way too hyped (my fault). The characters to me still feel a little flat (not including the awesome David). At this stage it is a flawed masterpiece.

    June 9, 2012 8:26 pm HEAVY SPOILERS!!!! I thought it was completely disappointing but after asking my friends how they felt I'm of the belief that it brings up an important question about certain films "Are themes more important than the narrative?" I thought overall many great themes and presented to us, but the actual story was weak. The engineers are inherently interesting but after the initial questions they bring out in the viewer we see that in terms of plot they are completely devoid of motivation. Why did the engineers put life on Earth? Why did they want to kill humans? Why did they want humans to find them? These are the questions the characters and myself were asking the plot to answer. None of them were answered. The film asks many questions and brings up a great deal of themes but it doesnt answer or explore them. I'm not really looking for a movie that asks itself questions that I can ask. I want a movie that offers interesting answers.
    June 6, 2012 6:24 pm This sounds really interesting. Having really liked both "Shoot" and "Kill your boyfriend" this seems like something i would really like. Thanks for the teaser, this probably would've gone unnoticed by me without it.
