Prometheus, Netflix, and Le Guin’s Hypothesis

Abigail Nussbaum over at Asking the Wrong Questions examines why everyone hates Prometheus so much (including this great line “Shaw… seems more like Aliens‘s Burke than a Ripley”).

Here’s Shamus Young at Twenty-Sided on The Slow Death of Netflix: “I have money to spend and movies I want to see, but there’s only so much hassle I’m willing to endure to make this transaction happen.”

And finally: Le Guin, on trying to shoot down literature vs genre distinctions for the umpteenth time: “Every readable novel can give true pleasure. Every novel read by choice is read because it gives true pleasure.”
