Attack of The Little People and
Odyssey Who

I know, the headline is terrible and I apologize for it.

But you have to admit that cover is worth any number of terrible heds.

I suppose there's really nothing else to say, beyond offering a tip 'o the proverbial hat to io9.com.

There are a few other amusements in that gallery, though in my opinion the Nazi ... elves? dwarves? pixies? gnomes ... are the cream of a dubious crop.

Stay tuned folks! Swear to god, there's a real entry-a-comin' sometime soon!

Meanwhile, another time-waster for the Geeks Of a Certain Age Among Us (and those who've managed to see aging torrents or re-runs).

(And yes, a review of the latest Who special will be coming shortly, along with a critically appreciation of the mostly quite wonderful Sarah Jane Adventures. Anyway, I'll leave you with a rather lovely Who/Kubrick mash-up which not only looks to the past but, quite appropriately, to the future as well. Kudos to TardisTimegirl, whoever she might be.)

What a bizarre cover illustration.

It's really ... well, *some*thing, isn't it?

It almost requires the invention of an entirely new critical language — or maybe an entirely new language, period. I wonder if that's the same John Christopher whose Tripods trilogy thrilled me as a child?

Edited to fix humiliating apostrophail.

Edited again to note that it is the same John Christopher &mdash who is apparently still alive and who was still writing only a few years ago. If anyone is reading this.

Sounds right ...

But truth to tell I've never seen a 3-D movie in 3-D, so your guess is as good (or better) than mine. Did Up have a 3-D release?

Re: Sounds right ...

I thought as much, but I too saw only a 2-dimensional version acquired, er, via a "friend". :)
