Why do all “fantastic” film stories have “aliens” who are so much like us?
I am finally back from my travels and have a short term visa which I must now register to be able to stay another year. It is a difficult process all round and I have spoken to many other foreigners who are having the same difficulties, and I am sure many of them will not return to Ukraine because of this, possibly me included.
I will start the Friday night group again this week. I watched a very forget-able film in 3-D last night titled “John Carter,” which was a “fantastic” tale about alien civilizations on Mars, civil war and of course love!
So the question I want to start tomorrow night with is, Why do all “fantastic” film stories have “aliens” who are so much like us? The aliens in this film were green and had four arms and horns protruding forward from their jaws.............. but they still had heads and eyes, and a body similar to ours, with feelings and so on. My theme is “Story” in films. Why does it follow such a predictable format? Is there a universal law that says it must be so? Come ready to join in, with a big smile and ready to laugh at life, and learn something.
