  1. I loved this quote about the Final Fantasy movie:

    “It?s 2065, 38 years after the earth was invaded by the mysterious Phantoms, energy beings that are largely invisible and that kill all life on contact. That means they?re coming in 2027, at which time I?ll be 80 years old and won?t care much. Sucks to be you, though.”


    For another good site that details the shortcomings of SF movies, among other things, go to Bad Astronomy.
