See Spot. See Spot run. Run Spot run.

See George. See George learn. Learn George learn.

See Man. See Man fall. Fall Man fall.

See Ape. See Ape rise. Rise Ape Rise.

See Planet. See Planet of the Apes.

See George. See George run. Run George Run.

See Lady.

"You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

Row row row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream. a nursery rhyme. "Life is but a dream" and all we can keep on rowing. After all,

Round the world and home again
That’s the sailor’s way
Faster faster, faster faster

There’s no earthly way of knowing
Which direction we are going
There’s no knowing where we’re rowing
Or which way the river’s flowing

Is it raining, is it snowing
Is a hurricane a-blowing

Not a speck of light is showing
So the danger must be growing
Are the fires of Hell a-glowing
Is the grisly reaper mowing

Yes, the danger must be growing
For the rowers keep on rowing
And they’re certainly not showing
Any signs that they are slowing

... is from a film intended for children. Children love existential crises.

That is what Tolkien envisioned. I am sure. Lots of super powers, gore and game mechanics ripped right out of Assassin's Creed.

Oh, you want some more poetry or song?

“Not all those who wander are lost." -J R R Tolkien

Moving along...
