persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

Thursday, December 04, 2008

I find it curious that after writing about these stories about people and universes going in reverse that a motion picture title, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON will soon be released. 

And a RED DWARF novel, simply titled BACKWARDS was written. In that one, Lister has died, and is placed on this particular planet where things age in reverse. The novel's novelty? Trying to unscramble things to get Lister back at the right age when he was on the ship...and with his loyal crew trying themselves not to get caught up in the same reverse issue.

Deja vu.

(aside: there's deja poo. It's a different form of SS DD.)
