ZRE Podcast #24: Fictional Universes- Where you wanna live and where ya don’t

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , on 07/17/2014 by Taylor Holt


This week we discuss the positives and negatives of the fictional places we love. Sure, the stories are great, but would you want to live in the Star Wars universe? Yes? Okay, yeah, sure, who wouldn’t? But don’t think that just because you’re living there that means you’d just be a Jedi or something alright?

Normal people have to live in these universes too, y’know. Continue reading

The ultimate nerd in the role of the ultimate hero hardly seems like an appropriate fit, doesn’t it? This is clearly ISTP’s role to save the world with guns, one-liners, and a well placed kick to the enemies’ head.

And normally, that is the case. But being as how most of this takes place inside of a computer, it changes the dynamics of everything and puts the power of a demigod into the hands of the type most suited for online godliness- INTP. Continue reading

MBTI: Morpheus- ENFJ

This one’s a bit trickier, but as far as ENFJs go, Morpheus fits the type pretty well. It can seem especially difficult in a film series where just about everybody dresses in leather, suits and sunglasses while most lines are questions with a one word response.

Character 1: Is this going to work?

Character 2: It has to.

Seems like a world full of Introverts which lead many to speculate that Morpheus is also a solitary man, but that would have more to do with the movie keeping a steady rhythm. At a closer look, it gets pretty clear that Morpheus is not only an Extrovert, but an Extroverted Feeler first. Unfortunately, no one can be told what Morpheus is. You have to read it for yourself.  Continue reading

This Movie Suuucks: The Matrix Sequels

When I first saw the original Matrix in 1999, it was the greatest thing I’d ever seen, even without completely understanding it. We hadn’t really seen fighting like that outside of kung-fu films and even then, it hadn’t really ever been combined with the supernatural/bullet time aspects. Blade (1998) is the only other thing that comes to mind.

So when The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions were announced, everybody just felt like they hit the jackpot. “The fighting, the message, the music? There’s going to be MORE of it?” Little did we know, it was all just going to be terrible. Not only that, after a few years I’d heard a few rumors and eventually read some articles stating that the original was even a rip-off of a Grant Morrison comic book, ruining my entire idea of the freaking movies. Thanks, Cracked.  Continue reading
