->You would have thought the one concrete advantage to [[spoiler:Dumbledore]] being definitely dead would be avoiding the long [[spoiler:Dumbledore Explains The Plot]] chapter at the end of the book. But, no. [[DeathIsCheap Death just isn't the handicap it used to be in the olden days]] and it happens anyway. Stab me. Stab me now.

->You'll note the film avoids the most deadly of devices, the opening montage in which a narrator fills in the background of an imagined world. It kills the momentum before it has a chance to develop, info-dumping on the audience before we have people to care about. Sometimes films that provide all the needed info as they go along still have the montage introductions tacked on at the beginning. When this happens I always envision [[ExecutiveMeddling a note given by an inattentive studio executive]] falsely convinced it will clarify, rather than deaden, the action.

->I criticize many people when they just say a movie is boring because that is not descriptive...There are many long movies that are [[EpicMovie engrossing all the way through]] because it is so well written and you need all that time to tell the complex story. So why do I find this movie so boring? Well, it's because this isn't a movie. Okay, technically speaking it is but it's not at the same time. I swear I'm not trying to do some Zen riddle. What I mean is this is more a dry college lecture with some action scenes spliced in. I don't care how many squibs you set off, I'm still gonna fall asleep to Ben Stein talking about voodoo economics.

->Once the credits end, we get the first of [Lori] Pettyís voiceover narration for the movie, in which she explains that itís 2033, a comet hit the earth and thereís no water left. Itís rather charming for a minute (her 'itís not all bad' about twenty people having to take baths together at a time is chuckle-worthy), but then you kind of realize [[ThisIsGonnaSuck weíre going to be told everything thatís important this way]].

->All of this, which I have not embellished in any way, is established in one chapter in which the Dalek Prime just exposits recklessly. The best entertainment to be had in this book is in fact imagining most of this dialogue delivered by actual [[Series/DoctorWho Dalek]]s. My favorite line is ''"[[AC:Sit down. You will be more comfortable]]."''

->The lack of gravity, or solid ground, or even or a regular daylight cycle all contribute to medical problems that characters ''sure do love taking their sweet time'' explaining. It is '''[[Creator/HideoKojima Kojima]]''', after all, and if there's one example of how drastically his skills at characterization, world-building, and plot development collide with [[ProtectionFromEditors the sheer inefficiency of his writing]], it's ''Policenauts'' [...] No one in real life talks like this! It just pulls you out of the world and reminds you that it's conservatively-translated Japanese sci-fi from the Nineties! The technological marvels we enjoy in real life are mundane to us; they're ordinary. But the people in ''Policenauts'' won't shut up about them! I have no idea how this piece of plastic [a motherboard] can turn into a computer, and I've never really had reason to care. But if I were a ''Policenauts'' character I'd be able to tell you in no less than 400 words!
