MOVIE REVIEW: "Gravity" (2013)

I skipped reviewing this one the night I saw it because it was a late night to end a long string of late nights. That's made me lose a lot of the details I was going to talk about, so though I'm in much the same situation right now, I'm going to forge ahead with it. I blame severe lack of sleep for large portions of this review. In a technical sense, this was a very well made movie. The silence of space was both accurate and very compelling in setting the mood.

Movie Review: Looper

Okay, keeping the spoilers out of the bulk, so feel free to read whether you've seen the film yet or not. First off, Looper makes a good first impression by having a very solid and believable vision of the future. I wouldn't call it quite hard sci-fi, but it jibed with my sensibilities a lot better than most. It's fun to look at societies and technologies that are fundamentally and wildly different from the ones we have now, but it's ludicrous to suggest that this is the way the future is actually going to happen. Since most future-focused movies claim to make exactly this suggestion in their exposition, that's the lens I tend to inspect them with.

A Long Line At The Complaints Department...

As you may or may not be aware, I was ushered in this general direction at the behest of Mama Fisi. I'm sure you know that she's not one to give orders, but she's also not someone whose suggestions are easily refused. As to why I'm here, I'm as bewildered as you. I love to talk, but given an open-ended chance such as this I find myself with little to say. I've found an ear or two online for my own... diverse opinions and complaints. Apparently some of them were entertaining enough that I found requests for more cropping up before long.
