The stories “A Sound of Thunder” by “Ray Bradbury” and “Nethergrave” by “Gloria Skurzynski” were both very interesting to read. However one story had more of the sci-fi elements to it than the other. “A Sound of Thunder” by “Ray Bradbury” is a better example of a science fiction story than “Nethergrave” by “Gloria Skurzynski” because it is more focused on the technology in the story.

(cite) Smith starts the poem with a communal invitation to make a new movie. He uses juxtapositions to show the mood of the film is when “Jurassic Park meets Friday meets The Pursuit of Happyness,” meaning a suspenseful creature movie with the influence of “hood boys.” The last three lines of the first stanza paint an image of an African American boy playing with a toy dinosaur and gazes out his window to see a T.Rex because “there has to be a T.Rex.” Due to typecast dinosaur movies it has to be a T.Rex, but leaves the question open to if this movie is about an African American boy what stereotypes about him have to be in the movie?
