    I am an Film, Video, and Media Studies Major here at Western Michigan University and I love reading books about movies. Also Sci-Fi movies are my favorite so I would most definitely read this book and provide a review for you.

    i’m interested in any comparison/contrast with the book Insultingly Stupid Movie Physics, which i found mildly disappointing

    the book was swag at the 2008 NC Science Bloggers conference. I found it interesting but very uneven. I’m looking forward to reading what others think
