You ain’t getting away with it now…
Yeah, this. Are there no gamers in the future? Did nobody tell them how to spawn-camp?
This was a dig at a contingent of American … “thinkers” who think building a wall between America’s southern borders and Mexico is somehow going to end the threat of Al Quaeda – the director, señor Gillermo del Toro, is Mexican.
A little late to the party here but, we need gopher-chucks!
Depends… What if the Wraith could evolve 50 times? Who’s to say they have to stop at stage 3? For all we know, there are monsters at stage 5000, the size of Earth itself floating in space. ^.^
Except that’s actually physically impossible.
What if another Wraith was feeding it food off other planets, to keep sustaining its evolutionary growth? ^.-
As in, a creature that size…do you know how much food it would need?
Maybe they started a breeding program, and were feeding billions, upon billions of canyon striders to the Wraith.
Still not enough. Still not even close to enough.
Regardless, I shall humor you and let you fantasize about this. Peace.
Why thank you Rose.
What if… it swam around space and ATE PLANETS!? I’ve got a good name for it, beginning with a “G”.
Yeah that’s about right. The current thinking behind dealing with enemies seems to be one of two things.
- Leave them be/ Build a Wall.
- Give them stuff. In 2012 the president literally gave ISIS military drones and missiles in an attempt to make a peace pact. Wonder how that went.
Anywho, I don’t think we’ll ever know the gist behind the monster invasion.
Not sure where you got the Isis thing, but I don’t do actual politics around here.
A martial artist-type monster, focusing heavily on bursty, single-target damaging abilities would actually be awesome.
Heh, with these things I always think that most people won’t get it, won’t get the cultural influences of a movie or book and put too much value on it. Like with The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and that kind of stuff.
That’s the beauty of speculative fiction – Rod Serling and Gene Roddenberry both talked about how they wanted to tell contemporary stories, but couldn’t do it directly, so they dressed their ideas up in genre conventions and got away with some really subversive stuff on network TV!
Sure, that’s been the staple of science fiction since its inception, what I’m pointing is the lack of originality of the big “hits” in the modern media. This is besides intertextuality and influences, of course.
Yeah, that’s fair – Age of Ultron looks like it’s gonna be fuckin’ awesome, though!
That’s the corporate explanations. Maybe there’s more then meets the eye . Most notably the suits diverting the hunters what is really going on…
