“I am not going to sit on my ass as the events that affect me unfold to determine the course of my life. I’m going to take a stand. I’m going to defend it. Right or wrong, I’m going to defend it.”
April on my calendar last year.

Boy, the CHSH documentary crew was quite respectful of people’s wishes if this bullshit is kosher.
Hmmm… Do I want to give up the rights to my voice and likeness in all forms THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE IN PERPETUITY, or do I want to get on my plane home?

That’s some motherfuckin’ BULLSHIT right there.
But the worst part? NO OXFORD COMMA!
On Netflix Instant. From a story by H. G. Wells.
The movie starts with the first Moon landing, but when they find a British flag and a note from 1899, things get very interesting.
The story is engaging. The main characters are straight-up archetypes, fulfilling their respective roles in the plot, including, unfortunately, the female whose only motivation seems to be getting married, and who is also frequently blamed for things that go wrong. As for the other archetypes, there is the brilliant but absent-minded genius, and the charming and deceptive writer.
The special effects are above-average for the time, and although the plot is a little simplistic to our modern psyches, it’s definitely worth a viewing.
