Three years ago I wrote a column deploring the godawful state of fantasy-genre movies, and saying that unless we demanded more of the movie industry we were not going to get it… but if we did demand more, we would, and the market would see that geek dollars are worth the trouble. Tonight, we got more. Will this raise the bar for keeps? May it be. Certainly it’s a hot topic at Slashdot tonight.
(Now, did anyone else have an moment of holy-socks-there’s-filk-on-my-screen moment during the A Mighty Wind performance? Some nights are so brilliant that you don’t even mind a little good-natured ribbing.)
