I'm a storywriter, sometimes I do colour stuff too. I'm also a Multi-Tailed Oltanian Blanford's Fox or Afghan Fox, or a Gilgran/Ralician, by our native language(s). I'm from Planet Oltanis within the Solana Galaxy.
I'm a full-time protector of the galaxies, I utilize electrokinetics into my business. Leader of the Oltanis Zeta, team of awesome people that are about to help about in their own ways. As CEO of a galactic tech corporation, I'm delighted to bring goodness and a shine of light to the furthest civilization we can reach. Join us, and we shall give a hand!
Personally, I'm a big fan of movies and tv shows, and fan of video gaming. I love cartoons and anime, and lots of shows between the 80s and 2000s. Just my childhood and all. I don't watch many movies, and a big list of movies and tv shows I've never seen, but have heard of. It's strange to not have seen X movie, that millions, including my friends or peers have. But I'm trying to catch up, aliens like me don't get HBO, that costs extra!
A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001)
A really nice adventure film.
This is one of those films that has a special place in my heart. Today is the 20th anniversary of this film, and without knowing that fact right away, it was very special anyway.
This is the love child of Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg, so we know it's going to be out of the park and out of the woods with lore and special effects.
The movie's first act is hilarious and they're just trying to make this kid learn how to live. The hilarity is ensued and very well done. Doesn't come off as an annoying factor as some kid actors might do. This is probably because of the lead actor being very good at what he does, even as a child actor you'd probably only know from The Sixth Sense if someone showed you a picture of him. His name probably wouldn't ring any bells today, but he's a meme now, and forever immortalized as the kid from that movie. He's actually much better in this one as he has more experience under his belt by now.
Second Act of the movie, we get the Gigolo. He's funny as heck and a good adventure companion, and the hilarious stuff they get into in the city.
By the third act, we kind of get into Day After Tomorrow territory, and I'm wondering if that movie stole the frozen NYC idea from this. They just didn't have the SuperRobots doing the digging. Well the setting of the movie is pretty much Perfect Storm I'm guessing, and I think a lot of movies at this point was pushing for climate change awareness. Al Gore and all that. Too bad 20 years later, that's still hard for people to imagine is a real thing.
Honorable mentions goes to the Teddy bear. Considering Ted with Mark Wahlberg, came out on the same day as this movie, 11 years later. I can't unsee this being the same bear, and Mark is the kid all grown up. This would probably be what happened if David actually was a real boy. Eh, you can dream big or go home!
This is movie needs much more awareness and love. Everything is just alright! There's just the matter of something... Last, but not least, Martin and those other boys deserves the frozen sleep. Not the girl though, was kind of hoping David would have a sister companion too, but maybe in a sequel?
The X Files: The Host (1994)
This is probably the first of many episodes where X Files starts getting to the weirder weird. Stuff that's weirder than Season 1's monster of the weeks. May not be Tooms or light-eating flies, but the next time you decide to flush your toilet, please keep alligators out of it. Also keep your worms out of it too. Yeah, I'm talking to you Miss Molly Ringworm.
I'm rarely creeped by X Files, but I think this is probably the first of Season 2 that got me goin. I was thinking of a plant demon though besides a worm-man.
We also get a look into some of the Big Bads for this season.
Looking at the beginning episodes of Season 1 and Season 2 respectively, they're like different versions of the same show. I'm guessing this is where the show starts getting into the weirder cryptids and almost SCP territory whereas Season 1 was more "maybe it is, maybe it is not" scepticism, and still grounded and trying to find its mythos. Season 2 is more like a story of pathos, I'm getting.
Year One (2009)
Michael Cera & Jack Black Gem
This is based on the DVD/BluRay Unrated version of the movie.
When I watched the film, I had the DVD commentary version when I was streaming it. Usually I'll watch commentaries after watching the main movie, but with Jack Black, Michael Cera, and the director commentating on the movie, made it so much better to watch.
The three of them have such good chemistry to make a film more interesting, if you like watching commentaries. It's just funny hearing them going over how ridiculous this movie was and you know it's not supposed to be a serious flick at all, and it's everyone just having fun you know.
It's like a college reenactment party, mixed with the pacing of Sid Meier's Civilization, because you start with the beginning, Hunter/Gatherer tribes, and it's fast forwarding through historical events and your primitives evolve into pseudo-greco/roman civilizations within a day of play.
I'm kind of a fan of Michael Cera and Jack Black. Sometimes they alone have good movies, Cera's sort of a soft-spoken actor and he brings sort of the down-to-earth, sort of literal-rationalist taking of the insanity of everyone else, especially with how irrational the plot of the bible is like. Jack Black's just naturally crazy at every role he does, but he's enjoyable enough here. I watched Nacho Libre a few days ago, and watching this movie, I'm still seeing Jack Black be himself, and that's just fine.
If I wasn't watching the movie stuck with the commentary version, I'd probably rate this lower to about 5 or 6, it's a terrible movie on its own, like if you removed Michael Cera & Jack Black, the movie wouldn't lose any plot or gain any sense, but it's not trying to be a serious movie. It's like a frat party movie, but set in biblical/roman/early human times. Just something to snack and enjoy, and laugh a bit. And I regularly enjoyed myself, even though it was more like watching it with the lead roles and the director in my living room.
Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962)
Having a Good Time
This is one of those movies that takes time to grow to like. At first I'm enjoying the exposition up to when they get to the house. From there the movie seems to drop off and get just kind of blandish at times. When the family reunion scenes come around, is when this movie kind of stops working. The Carver family reminds me of my annoying kid cousins and entitled aunt, but as soon as they leave, I'm like: "Whoo, fresh air!" I'm almost glad they didn't even stick around in the movie that long,.
The movie doesn't really pick up steam until the dances scene and then the boat scene. I really enjoyed the moment between Hobbs and Danny. I also had a good chuckle with the bathroom scene.
This movie actually feels like a sitcom more than your usual comedy film. With two hours of film in this, it feels like multiple episodes rather than one long film. I kind of like that. You could split this movie up into parts, and it'd feel more like a multi-parter special, could watch 30 minutes now and 30 minutes later, and it'd feel natural.
TL;DR - Great family film from the early 1960s and has some chuckles here and there, definitely something you can pop in and kill two hours with and walk out with good feelings.
Law & Order: Indifference (1990)
A Strong Case and a Stronger Trial
This is probably the first Law & Order episode I felt strong emotions from. From the start to finish, this is a strong episode to watch, especially if you come from a family that deals with abuse of any kind. Even if you're not, it makes you feel like, what if it was your child in that hospital or if perhaps you were an ex-aggressor.
Stone here was probably the most frightening in the death glare he gives to the defence. I've never seen the guy so royally pissed, but couldn't say it out loud. The Judge here, probably knew in his heart what kind of case he was dealing with, as impartial as he has to be to hear both sides of the case, you have to wonder what he's thinking. This is the 9th case of the episode, and I thought Subterranean Homeboy Blues, Reapers, or maybe Kiss the Girls were tough cases.
Lorraine Toussaint makes her second appearance, and is as a fancy defence as ever. She makes rare appearances in the show, but if she could've been a regular, she'd definitely lighten up the court side of the show.
We also get a glance into Detective Logan's life on how big this case is to him. This is a case that's particularly rough for a couple of the characters based on their histories. Perhaps even Stone's history is unfolded too, even though he doesn't say anything about himself up to this point as far as I remember.
The X Files: Darkness Falls (1994)
The Value of Light
This is probably one of the earliest X-Files episodes that I actually enjoyed and kind of felt the nightmare fuel that I'd expect. Not any other episode, except maybe Ice, but that one was too localized to almost be a real life issue. This one however is one of those times where you kind of think in the realms of possibility more.
I've always had a fear of flying insects, though mostly wasps/hornets/bees, the ones that like to invade your privacy lol.
But this episode though, does have a sense of value to light and electricity as a commodity, like what if electricity or light was scarce, to the point that if you don't keep the lights on, something _will_ turn your lights off~ so to speak. Light or even sunlight, to be though as a commodity to be bought or conserved, because if you don't, you'll pay for it another way.
It's just an enjoyable episode, that's not really part of the main mythology, monster-of-the-week type, but it's really good. I rarely make reviews here, but I just had to with this one!
