The Tao of Gaming

Boardgames and lesser pursuits

Misc Media Review

Since I’ve got nothing to say regarding new games …

Redbelt — A good flick, and one of David Mamet’s more uplifting pieces (most characters have their lives trashed). I mean, you have a guy who makes selling timeshares into an interesting play/movie, and now he’s writing about hollywood, honor and MMA? [The DVD’s extras include a Q&A with Mamet].

Dollhouse — “Fox shifted to soft-core pornography so gradually, I barely noticed!” I’ll stick out the season, because I’m not terribly bright, and I want to see what happens once Joss pens an episode. (If he actually shifts to a “boom-chicka-wa” bass line as his episode’s soundtrack, that’s good enough for me).

Battlestar Galactica — Watching this parallels living it: a joyless journey led by those making it up as they go along in the hopes that the rest of the survivors don’t notice. I apologize to everyone I introduced this to …

Saturn’s Children — I like Stross, but I flung aside Halting State with great force. This seems like a romp so far (granted, just started).

  1. I agree with you on Dollhouse and Battlestar Galactica, assuming you pretend that I kept watching BsG after they got off New Caprica.

  3. Havent seen any of the others, but I have to disagree on BSG, I’ve loved pretty much all of it except some of the non-plot-advancing midseason episodes.
