Still Mad

Robert Quick

Where the -@!# did my muse go?

Writer, dreamer, knight, shackled by entertainment . . . and people.

Story is marked as mature.

“Why did the scientists take off their helmets on an alien planet with barely breathable atmosphere? How come the geologist got lost after he literally just mapped the place? Why did the scaredy-cat biologist suddenly decide to play with the sinister-looking alien snake after he just freaked out about alien corpses? None of this makes any sense, and that's without mentioning the ending. Change direction to not die!”

“If people did the smart thing, there wouldn't be a movie.”

“Yeah. Exactly. There shouldn't have been THIS movie. It's hot garbage.”

“But it looks good!”

“I grant you that but that actually exacerbates another problem. It looks too good."

“What do you mean?”

“This is supposed to take place twenty-nine years before before the original movie.”

“Yeah? So?”

“How come the technology looks so much more advanced?”

“Because our technology is advancing at a faster pace the original movie accounted for.”

“Yeah but by attempting to set this in our own universe, they fucked up their own timeline.”
