One of my favourite time-wasters is How It Should Have Ended, a website that makes short cartoons ridiculing blockbuster movies by pointing out holes in their dumb plots and other problems that should’ve been caught before they reached the multiplex. HISHE has brilliantly mocked dozens of movies including Jaws, Indiana Jones And the Crystal Skull, Superman, The Dark Night, Man Of Steel, Star Wars, Jurassic Park and the terrible Prometheus, . Now they’ve gone after Star Trek Into Darkness. The cartoon shows what you get when your movie’s plot has no coherence beyond a surface sheen of cool ideas. You get… trouble.
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog's unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
