The Devil’s in the Details.
We may have missed some science mistakes in this first episode — an inaccuracy or a poorly-thought-out “Don’t take your helmet off” scene — but it felt as though great care was taken (in the beginning) for the CDC to be accurate and realistic. There’s a particular scene where two scientists are strapping into their clean suits, and taping the other up, thus revealing a real, physical need for each other in this situation. However, the characters themselves have absolutely no reason to trust one another. The juxtaposition was great.
from io9’s review of Helix — A POSITIVE REVIEW OF THE RESEARCH AND WORK I DID FOR THE SHOW!!!! woo-hoo.
ask me all about racal suits.
Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?
When a celebrity passes, the loss is personal — not because we knew the celebrity, but because they were with us as we grew up and as we had our own special moments,” Dr. Alan Hilfer, director of psychology at Maimonides Medical Center in New York City, told U.S. News & World Report. In other words, they’re in emotional proximity to us even if we’ve never met them.
Is Elsa gay? I think there’s certainly a valid queer reading to be found in the film. It isn’t like she has a girlfriend - or any romance at all - but the idea that she was born different (it’s explicitly specified that she was born this way, not cursed) and that her difference makes her not a ‘good girl’ (a phrase repeated) lends itself to that interpretation. If we read Elsa as gay, Anna’s quest to show her that she is loved and accepted becomes all the more profound.
I really adored this movie and its feminist message (especially with its interpretation of an act of true love).
so… it is becoming very clear that (despite my best intentions and sudden wealth of free time) I’m probably not going to be able to read fifty-two books this calendar year.
the point of the 52 weeks / 52 books was more about getting in the habit of picking up a book rather than finding myself three youtube videos deep in a demi lovato related vortex or watching another episode of a show I only kinda-sorta enjoy. and so, for that purpose, this experiment has succeeded.
I’ll probably try again next year. and this time, I know not to jump into a Stephen King novel and expect to finish it in the same time it takes me to read a YA novel.
