Kainsword, criminals have their own moral values, too. Almost every human being has ethical views. And as said above, targeting children is considered reprehensible almost universally.
It was just something I've been thinking about for a while. I've heard that child-killers are hated by all inmates in prisons, even by other killers, but I never knew why until you guys told me. Thank you for filling me in.
I just watched Star Trek: Into Darkness, and it was awesome. The only thing bad I have to say about it is that it was rather predictable. I don't care if people at school look at me and look like: O_o, It's a great movie. The visuals were in amazing quality with humorous references to the previous movie. If you are not gonna watch it, then believe me, you're gonna regret missing one of the best sci fi film this year so far. We're getting a lot of those, aren't we this year? Iron man 3, man of steel, oblivion, quite a few.
sci-fi is a dumb distinction of genre because it encompasses any fiction where there's anything new
it should just be fiction
speculative fiction, maybe, but then that's another needless sub-genre, and i don't think you could call things like "iron man" speculative. i was gonna argue that it wasn't sci-fi, but it's about a man with a robot-suit so that would've been a defeatist position to take.
Science fiction is a genre under fiction, in which the story features technological and scientific achievments that shouldn't exist/have not existed yet. Thats what I like about sci fi. You don't know which things will become real. I don't understand why he doesn't like the label. Media today, had become too diverse to label things as "fiction" or "non-fiction", we now need to know what we are getting ourselves into these days. Fantasy: a world of mythical creatures, historical: a tale taking place in an early time period, and there's science fiction, like I described earlier. All of those "labels" tell us what we're getting ourselves into when we read a new novel, watch a new movie, or play a new videogame. I may be overstating, my point, but I can hardly understand why someone would be fine with looking at a science fiction film and say: "it has something to do with space and lasers!", and sound like and ass, because there is no category of the work! Okay, I think I'll be going now. Geronimo.
"You don't know which things will become real." Audible explosions in space will never become real, which kind of indicates scientific accuracy isn't important in making an enjoyable space opera like Star Trek.
I personally have no opinion, though I refer to Iron-Man 3 as a superhero movie or comic book based movie, never called it sci-fi. Just be aware you're wasting your time, you won't convince Grey.
