ambitiously designed hooey (cocaine potentially involved)

loose rules:
a) must feature some kind of ambitious 'world building' element (huge fancy stylish sets a big bonus)
b) should shy away from taking place in 'the world as we know it' unless accompanied by rule c
c) often includes characters being transported to a new world or dimension (we shouldn't spend a huge amount of running time in 'the world as we know it')
