hollywood ruins expendables franchise

Homosexual characters have started to appear more regularly in Hollywood films. its good to have movies with homosexual lead characters etc. but is it necessary to ruin a oldschool franchise ? besides the movies  weak screenplay, it misses all elements which makes the franchise great –> 80’s action movie flair !
shake cameras in the action scene was nice in the bourne movies but should not been in this movie. huge part of the movie is focused on new rookie characters, which are boring and have acting skill at all. the movie should be about oldstars actionheros we all love. A wasted opportunity. the PG13 rating does not help either. the first two movies was great but this one sucks big time.

i could talk about all the bad stuff in this movie but i keep it simple:

i want my money back !

 

Space Opera: Guardian of the Galaxy

finally, the best a space Opera after “empire strikes back” (from 1981). i’ve collect best comments about this movie:

Guardians of the Galaxy brings to mind some of the most unforgettable sci-fi event movies of the last 30 years.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” revives the pleasures of 70’s and 80’s blockbusters that had been buried in a quagmire CG in the leaden coffins of dull writing.

Guardians of the Galaxy delivers thrills, pathos, and non-stop fun. If you see a single movie this year, make it this one.

Galaxy’s great fun but its biggest creative gamble is featuring untested heroes. If that’s cause for celebration then risk ain’t what it used to be.

Walking out of Guardians, there’s a very real sense that you’ve just seen this generation’s Star Wars.

nothing more to say !

extreme lucky situation in movies and real life

some movies, there are situations with extreme lucky coincidences. example: gravity when tiny debris hits the little international space station over and over again. the chances are millions to 1 likely to happen. ok, its a movie and imaginary situation make most of good stories in film.

but sometimes real life even more lucky situations. how about the changes for duck family to pass a busy highway ?

i said it before and say it again. no movies is crazier than real live !

Effect of twinstick shooters

I like twinstickshooters or oldschool arcade games. The reason is simple : because they are simply!  You don’t need think when you playing this kind of game. It’s pure visual processing and reaction. What i mean, all you need to do watch the screen and react with the controller. After stressful day at work, your mind is spinning.

Turn on the game, turn off the brain. 

After intense gaming, your may feel refresh in your mind. Maybe your exos but your head is clear again.  It has same effect like meditation, which is art of thinking nothing. We always thinking, all the time, its impossible to have no thoughts. When you playing this simple games, our brain things “it’s always the same, shooting, move die, level up! I am out there!”  our dominant left brain (or right brain if you are left handed) give the controls the other part of the brain. The other side of the brain works visually and don’t know/have thoughts. After the playtime, our dominant brain comes back and feels refreshed and stronger, because it had 30min. break of its 24/7 job. Meditation would be better because both of the brain get a break, but to master this is unlikely much difficult and less fun !

Here is my personal top 3 twinstickshooters:

 

1. Geometry wars galaxy (Nintendo wii, xbox)

Simple graphics but insane amount of visual action.  Millions exploding particles abd fast action.  High score hunting and mastering all gamemodes could take years to master.

2. Super stardust HD (playstation, vita)

In Super Stardust HD, the player controls a space fighter craft that can move in any direction on a spherical shield surrounding a planet. The primary threats against the player are three types of asteroids and various enemy spacecraft, which appear on the playfield at certain time intervals.

3. Ballistic and Inferno+ (iphone, andriod, PC, Mac)

Both games Develop from radian games. Ballistic SE is an intense twin-stick arcade shooter!  Blast thru endless waves and 5 timed challenges, enhance your ship in 10 categories. Inferno+ is a beautiful twin-stick action-RPG.  Blast your way through 40 atmospheric levels.  Explore the gauntlet of stylish environments, destroy hordes of enemies, and upgrade your ship along the way.
