Review: Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture (VG)

In Entertainment, Reviews by J Michel Metz3 Comments

I just finished Everbody’s Gone To The Rapture, a gorgeous, non-linear mystery storytelling tour-de-force, that is not without some minor problems. Review: 2 out of 10. Recommend if you’re in the right frame of mind for a snail’s-pace non-linear story, but if you’re looking for something other than a sci-fi walking simulator, you’ll be disappointed.

Review: Imprisoned by the Prisoner, Part II

In Entertainment, Reviews by J Michel Metz1 Comment

It’s worse than I thought. Originally in my previous post I was concerned about the loss of the spirit of the show, as the program was decidedly anti-corporation and the protagonist was weak, incapable, and extremely difficult to identify with. Little did I know that it could actually be *worse* than that.

Review: Ch. 6 of “I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be an Atheist”

In Philosophy, Religion, Reviews by J Michel Metz2 Comments

For those people who are attempting to ask some serious questions about whether or not Christianity can provide answers that Atheism can not, this book professes to provide a guide to why Christianity requires less faith than Atheism. However, as this chapter delves into Intelligent Design – and does so poorly – it leaves me wondering about the motivations and the manipulative nature of Christians, instead.
