Sunday Review: Alien vs Predator

posted by the Judge

Goddamn. When Rowyda told me that she was working on Alien vs Predator, I was overjoyed. I've been a fan of this franchise since forever - such a fan, in fact, that I even enjoyed the movies (!). I did experience a little bit of apprehension at the thought that someone might find a fifteen year old's most deeply buried secret (and people wonder why I write under a fake name), but I considered that that link was dead forever, and I was pretty sure the others would also never be found, so I acquiesced to publishing the review.

And then it turned out to have nothing to do with the movies, or the games, or the comic books. Instead it's a book of poetry by this Michael Robbins, a guy whom I thought was an actor (the guy from Will Hunting, from what I recall, but this is muddled up enough as it is). Alien vs Predator is reviewed by Rowyda Amin at this link: No acid. Just great criticism.

Have a great Sunday!


  1. "a guy who I thought was an actor," not whom. you're confusing the objective case with the subjective because of the parenthetical "I thought," which doesn't affect the subject-verb arrangement.

  2. (You can see this by rephrasing: a guy who was an actor, I thought. There was a Michael Robbins on British TV, but he died. It's a common name. I got a Google alert about this post. Carry on.)

  3. Good call, Mike. My bad for writing under the effects of sobriety. Always did have bad effects on my grammar.


What say you?
