Never-Ending Toy Story

" … this beautiful love story . . . ."

An image from the previous post:

The above line "From the producer of Transformers " suggests
a story from March 18, 2019 . . .

      Misreading the words of di Bonaventura
yields a phrase that might be applied to 
the Church of Rome . . .
     "A franchise based on release dates." 
See dies natalis  in this journal.

     For the Church of Synchronology, see
the above di Bonaventura date, March 18.

     Then there is the Church of Cubism . . .

     "Before time began, there was the Cube."
     — Optimus Prime, Transformers , 2007

Mechanical Parable

Raiders of the Lost Crucible and Bee Season continue 

"Walter Kerr, in his 1953 review in the New York Herald Tribune ,
wrote, 'The Crucible , which opened at the Martin Beck Thursday,
…seems to me to be taking a step backward into mechanical parable,
into the sort of play which lives not in the warmth of humbly observed
souls but in the ideological heat of polemic.' For Kerr, Miller’s play is
an analytical argument, a treatise, rather than a heartfelt play about
human lives."

A more heartfelt approach —

" … this beautiful love story . . . ."

The New Yorker  reviewing "Bumblebee"

"There is one reliable source for superhero sublimity,
and it’s all the more surprising that it’s a franchise with
no sacred inspiration whatsoever but, rather, of purely
and unabashedly mercantile origins: the 'Transformers'
series, based on a set of toys, in which Michael Bay’s
exhilarating filmmaking offers phantasmagorical textures
of an uncanny unconscious resonance."
