Viviane Schwarz’s Welcome to Your Awesome Robot is part comic and part activity book. It takes as its initial premise that belief, long-accepted by all parents as a universal truth, that there’s nothing that will stimulate the imagination of a small child more than a large, empty cardboard box!
Superhot Review - SUPER Superhot began as a quick prototype with a cool mechanic, and now it’s been blown up into a full-fledged PC release that refines and expands upon that initial concept in some cool ways and wraps it all up in an enjoyable premise. It’ll also unlock some good, repeatable modes... http://www.gamesreview.tvseriesfullepisodes.com/superhot-review/
Nothing happens. Or more to the point, uninteresting things happen. No matter how realistic or uniquely written (a collection of unfinished paragraphs populate an entire chapter making one believe that their ereader is horribly broken) a novel is, things still have to occur in order to advance the initial premise to a point of eventual conclusion. http://www.opinionless.com/book-review-jon-mcgregors-even-dogs
BOOK REVIEW by Library of Clean Reads | Mary Elizabeth The Spotless Cow by Salvatore Barbera. Using the idea of a cow without spots is a unique and brilliant premise because young children ... quickly relate to or understand how Mary Elizabeth would stand out. We also liked that the leader cow who had initially shunned Mary Elizabeth felt regret afterwards and showed it not only through words but also through actions, making Mary Elizabeth feel truly accepted.
The attention-getting premise yields a limited series barely a step removed from Bill and Hillary Clinton — with Sigourney Weaver as a former first lady turned secretary of state — although it’s really a mash-up of past first families, and initially more preoccupied with what transpires between the sheets than within the halls of power. As such, the super-sized opener contains promise, but primarily feels like someone’s idea of an edgy concept — not so much wild as the hollow product of a…
EDGE OF TOMORROW (2014) - "Edge of Tomorrow benefits from a clever, high-concept premise, flashes of humour, gritty, real action and an initially unusual turn from Tom Cruise. However, as Cruise relaxes into his more typical Ethan Hunt-esque role, the film's earlier tentative probes at deeper themes are thrown out of the window for a boringly safe, if entertaining, ending." Will Lord, The Moviejerk

The fuss this novel generated must have been a consequence of its highly topical theme of the tribulations of modern parenting. The writing and/or the translation is, too often, quite clunky. Is the novel fundamentally satirical and how important is satire to its premise? By the end, 'I don't care' is my answer to both these questions. "The Dinner" starts a lot better than it finishes, its initial promise having completely dissipated somewhere along the way.
The premise of Creed initially seems to grasp a little too desperately at some kind of Rocky sequel relevance. The son of Rocky’s former rival Apollo Creed, Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan), decides to follow in his father’s footsteps, with aging Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stal-lone) as his mentor.
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Review Paper Jam is a well-executed amalgam of Nintendos two active Mario RPG series where the two-dimensional cast and papercraft creations of Paper Mario unknowingly invade the lands of Mario & Luigi. Both properties have four releases apiece going back to 2001 so well spaced out that their sequels always alternated release years. Now is as logical a time as any for these two worlds to collide but unfortunately the fusion gameplay of Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is…
So Much Closer by Susane Colasanti. Brooke, 17, has a huge secret crush on Scott. When he moves to New York City, she decides to move into her estranged father's Greenwich Village apartment. It was a little hard to believe the initial premise, but Brooke's teen angst and her raw and negative feelings about her parents' divorce is very realistic. I was glad when she finally started to realize that her life is her decision, her path her own.
Weslandia by Paul Fleischman. Initially the premise of this book sounded so strange to me, but the Amazon reviewers loved it. A child rejects the junk food and pop culture of his generation and spends his summer inventing a new world, where sports require braingpower as well as brawn and he has invented a new staple crop. The pictures looks beautiful.
This film chronicles the life of a man who is initially unaware that he is living in a constructed reality television show, broadcast around the clock to billions of people around the globe. Everything that happened to him was set up, so in a way the show didn't tell what actually happens.
