Well I'll get pelters but this was my favourite film.A good action packed Sci Fi film.The fact that there was all the background on the characters helped but as a film I think this one worked the best.

Then again I do love kick ass space battles and I think the one in this movie is superb.For some reason the Thirdspace aliens made me think of Cthulhu and maybe that struck a nerve too.

Big A from me :)

Yeah, there is a definite, enjoyable Lovecraftian-ness to Thirdspace.

Reminds me of an adaptation of a silly old joke:

Quote:

# thirdspacer has joined #firstones

<thirdspacer> ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

<shadow> don't paste perl in here

# thirdspacer was kicked from #firstones by vorlon
(With all due apologies to people who write in Perl - it's not a bad language, it's just that great evil can be done with its syntax. ;) I'll go fetch my flameproof suit now. :D )

This must be some new usage of the word "joke" that I am unfamiliar with ...

:p

It does rely on multiple references, which could be its downfall as a joke.

You need to know something about Perl (like what kind of syntax is possible in that language). Then you'll understand why Cthulhu trying to communicate over IRC might be mistaken for someone pasting Perl. And finally you need to know about "what's the best programming language" flamewars, which have the regularity and temperament of Shadow wars, a thousand times their frequency and lack the casualties only because weapons of mass destruction tend to be unavailable. :p

If you know the background, you may find it quite fun. I did... but perahps I have a silly sense of humor. :)

I'd like to know what a Cthulhu is...

Seriously, have you people never heard of Google? Or Wikipedia?

Of course I wikipedia'd it immediately after posting, but then couldn't be bothered to edit the post (damn Wikipedia for taking all the mystery out of my life :) ). I didn't know about the connection to Thirdspace, though.

That's exactly why I gave it a C.
