“Avatar” and “Manta’s Gift”

Yeah, I know this one is late too….

Am I the only person that thinks the 2009 movie “Avatar” is the film version of Timothy Zahn’s 2002 book “Manta’s Gift“.

I’ll be honest here, I haven’t gotten to read “Manta’s Gift” yet and I haven’t seen “Avatar” so I’m certainly not qualified to talk on this subject, but here’s the back cover to “Manta’s Gift:”

Matt Raimey had his whole life ahead of him when fate got in the way. One moment he was skiing down a tricky slope, the next he was flat on his back, paralyzed. His girlfriend left him, and his anger at the unfairness of it all drove away all of his friends.

Then Jakob Faraday of the Jupiter project came to ask if he’d like to go to Jupiter and be our emissary to the Qanska, the huge sentient creatures Faraday had discovered in Jupiter’s atmosphere, by becoming one of them. Be some kind of a freak halfway across the solar sustem? No way. Then Matt considered his one alternative: spending the rest of his life staring up at the ceiling.

So he went to Jupiter… and began a strange adventure that opened up his eyes to the wonder of a completely alien existence. But Earth’s ruling Five Hundred then decided he had to spy on his new ‘family’… and Matt knew that there’d be trouble for him and the Qanska. There’s only one way to avert a disaster that could wipe out the entire race, and it all depends on him…

Tell me that you’re not envisioning tall blue aliens when you read that?

Bolt and Tron

Am I the only person who thinks the motorcycles and riders from the movie Bolt look like the motorcycles and riders from Tron Legacy? Was Disney getting practice with Bolt?

I’m a terrible dad

Three days before Christmas and I tell my 5 year old that there’s no Santa Claus.

It’s not my fault. He caught me off guard, but I still feel like the grinch.

The Movie “Source Code”

Am I the only person (besides Jim Henry) who thinks that the movie “Source Code” looks like film adaptation of Timothy Zahn‘s short story “Banshee”?

Since we’re the only two people we know that have read “Time Bomb and Zahndry Others“, we probably are.

I’d post a synopsis of “Banshee”, but I can’t even find one out there. I thought by now everything had a synopsis about it somewhere online.

Schrödinger’s Baby

Am I the only person who thinks of Schrödinger’s Cat when I’m holding a quiet baby?

Seriously, forget Schrödinger’s Cat. Schrödinger could have made his point in quantum physics with an ordinary baby.

Weird Al Yankovic and Napolean Dynamite

I know this is way ripe, but I just have to know. Am I the only person in the universe that thinks “Napoleon Dynamite” is the film adaptation of Weird Al Yankovic’s “That Boy Could Dance”?

Apparently I am because a week after I posted this, this article became (and still is) number one in Google when you search “Napoleon Dynamite Weird Al Yankovic”
