I occasionally peruse the io9 web site. Occasionally, because, quite frankly, I find it a bit tiresome. It just seems a bit over the top and too much in love with itself.
Here, for example, is the piece on R’ha, which exhorts us to watch the short film. Well, I did, and it struck me as the sort of thing a male teenager in the grip of his hormones might do. Portentous, limited, and ultimately something that I would not want to engage with. Technically well-realised; but intellectually, a single note plucked on a well-worn string.
Then again there’s Mama. This has more meat on its bones. But whether it can be stretched out into a full length feature, I have my doubts. I’ll wait and see.
