Lost in Austen (2008)

What happens when Jane Austen meets Back to the Future? In LOST IN AUSTEN (2008), a modern-day Pride and Prejudice fan travels to the fictional past and tries not to screw up the canon pairings, but it's hard when you're irresistible to every man in the story, and some of the women. Dave and Elise try to figure out if Mary Sue can ever be an adequate substitute for Elizabeth Bennet, and whether the latter would really choose the internet over Mr. Darcy. Elise struggles to remember what she actually discovered as a research assistant on the Cambridge Edition of Jane Austen's Juvenilia (2006) except that Austen hated babies, and Dave laments his Stereo Mouth.

The discussion leads inexorably to the interesting quetion: Are ALL time travel tales "Mary Sue" narratives?

Terminator: Genisys (2015)

It's sequel time on Another Kind of Distance as Elise Moore and David Fiore tackle Alan Taylor's Terminator Genisys (2015). We attempt to peel away its Primer-like layers of plot complexity and find ourselves wondering if the writers even realize that those layers are there. Is it possible that they forgot to cast the "prime" mover of the alternate universe that takes shape in this film?

Also: David finds a flimsy pretext for working in a reference to old Marvel comics.
