Mania Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Article) - 7/11/2014 12:15:14 PM

 Serkis, don't know why I used the C maybe for Caesar

Mania Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (Article) - 7/11/2014 12:13:38 PM

 This was a fantastic film. So far the best, most engaging movie of the summer.

And the CGI was beyond compare. I kept marveling at how incredibly lifelike and real so many apes were, especially Maurice. Andy Cerkis was incredible, and so was Toby Kebell (sp?). Performances were truly wonderful.

Go spend money on this film. It's soooo worth it!

Oh, and Muenster, wasn't looking to disagree/debate ya. Simply offering another source of information. You are always cool beans in my book, broh

.....aaaaaaaaaaaaand, as for the movie, it looks okay. Really happy for Joel Edgerton though. Remember the days when he was just one of the Knights in King Arthur?

 

Props to him

As for the volcano, it was a few hundred miles away, but when a volcano hits (the ash, the sky turning black, the pollution) the fallout triggers higher levels of humidity/precipitation, which brings out the locusts. Also, a little known scientific fact is that frogs, sometimes n the hundreds, have fallen from the sky after a volcano eruption

 

I  will only mention one other historical culture related thing here. The Hittite Kingdom was thought to not exist, with no evidence whatsoever, until the 19th century, when it was discovered by archeologists.

Hope I've given a good foundational starting point to look up some research on your own. This world has shown its inhabitants capable of many things, not lease of which would be erasing a slave culture from the height of your empire.

A few things to speak on re Muenster's words...

a 4th century Greek scholar wrote about how Egypt faced a greate plague, and had a certain group of people expelled from their lands, where their leader, a name named MOses, settled the people in Canaan, whereupon founding Jerusalem.

Egyptians tended to erase or wipe out references to any slave culture. It's not a stretch to think they wouldn't write about a slave uprising during the height of their empire.

As for the plagues themselves, I  hold to the theory of a combination toxic algae and a volcano eruption in the country of Thera.

With the rising and lowering of the waters of the Nile, an algae bacterium known as the Burgundy Blood algea, would have affected the water. It's slow moving, and when it dies, it turns the water red.

I've recently learned that scientists who study frogs look to them first in water biodiversity, as frogs absorb the water around them, and are usually the first ones out when water gets polluted. When this happens, in Egypt, with no other main bodies close to them, frogs would die out, leaving flies, lice, and mosquitos to flourish. During this time, many diseases like maleria would spread, accounting for diseased livestock and boils

 

Game of Thrones: The Children Review (Article) - 6/17/2014 9:16:01 AM

Late to the comments, but let me get this out-

If you're a 'casual' viewer at the end of season 4, phuck off. I don't care what your opinion is of the show or if you thought it jumped the shark.

As for the episode itself.....

 

That fight was incredible. Like, painfully powerful to watch . I was hoping they could or Arya could have brought them to agreement.

Speaking of, holy cow did she finally catch a break. I'll bet that Syrio Ferrel was like, the King of Bravos or something, but had left the ladns, and now she'll be like Queen lol.

Tyrion. Boom. Shoot. I hope Tywin is dead.

Man, phck the Mountain! I can't believe he's alive. I wanted that sonuvaglitch suffer for a while! I bet that Maester necros/Berric Dondarians' him

Go Jamie!

Go Lady Brienne. She just got major props. Holy crap was that fight for the ages.

And man, the poor poor peasant man in Daeny's room. At first I thought assassin, but then it turns out he was just devastated. Poor freaking guy almost had me in tears.

Dragon CGI is getting way better, I bet in night scenes they'd look more real.

I even forgot about Jon Snow. He has major balls, and Stannis coming out of nowhere how craZy. But now they can just march down and take very thing over.

They are going to f uck up roose and Ramsay Bolton. Man I hope Jon wipes him out. Wonder what will happen with reek cause ya know Ramsey will use him somehow against snow. Stannis left when the North had no rule, so all he'd have to do is march south. Only the Boltons are in front of him.

 

Game of Thrones: The Mountain and the Viper Review (Article) - 6/3/2014 10:23:36 AM

Late to the game but....

Such a powerful episode. I mean, two weeks ago when Oberyn stands up and says 'I will be your champion' I wooed and got chills! Such an amazing character.

It hurt, man. Like seriously I felt like someone pulled my heart through my stomach. I don't think a tv or movie scene ever hurt as bad... The actor who plays him says he was talking with Lena headey on his last day and how even hough he dies, he ultimately does hear the confession, and perhaps that his character did achieve that peace of mind, even though he dies...

I am still broken up!!!!

Interstellar: Official Trailer (Article) - 5/23/2014 9:36:27 AM

Well, this is bloody brilliant. Feels like Chris Nolan could make what 'Contact' aimed for...irony is Matt Mc is in both films....maybe he'll find God

speaking of Guy Pearce, boy, there's a career that never really took off after L.A. Confidential. Sure, Memento was incredible, but I always felt like he had a fizzled film selection.
