Reviews - What do customers think about Liquid Metal: The Science Fiction Film Reader?
Repetition Sep 1, 2007
This book is broken down into different case studies or critical essays. It is 100% on critical theories. The editor tends to repeat himself incessantly in each chapter (I've even seen a whole two sentences repeatedly word for word). The good part is he keeps up with contemporary films and critiques them with as much enthusiasm as the oldies, but to get the basics of his point, all you need to do is skim each chapter and read the topic sentences. He likes to talk just for the sake of talking.
