The purpose of a critic is not to find funny way to bash a movie, but to find good movies and teach their audience to see better.
The Titan (with Sam Worthington) is a movie that has been given horrible reviews by both the audience and critics. In this series I will not only argue its merits but also teach how this movie uses literary elements to tell a good science fiction story in cinematic fashion.
You will learn
*how science fiction and art impact actual views and political policies including environmentalism.
*Why science fiction is the most important field in the world, as the transmitter of ideas.
* Science Fiction's rich literary history--from the bible to Dante, Milton, Shelley, Hawthorne and Wells.
*How the Titan is deceptively complex, with a nested narrative conflict between two Doctors.
*We will ask real world and story questions such as: Who is in control of the future? What moral system is best? What methods of seeking knowledge are appropriate? and many more.
I hope you'll join me in exploring this rich world of THE TITAN.
