Humor isn’t sensawunda… January 26, 2006

…but I still like it.

Case in point: Ask A Ninja

Just because I blog about sensawunda doesn’t mean I think it’s the only criterion for good entertainment, or good art. Indeed, many great novels and films have absolutely no sensawunda at all. They’re great for other reasons.

I’ve also seen cases where there’s a touch of sensawunda, but that’s only one of several elements that makes the story worth watching or reading.

I get a kick out of the broad, silly, almost nonsensical humor of “Ask A Ninja.” Others (like my husband :-P) find it too sophomoric for their taste. That’s OK. See if I care.
