On film 4, is it worth a watch?
from a place deep within yourself
yes its a great film, although it may not be fully appreciated if you lack imagination or need everything fully explained to you.....there are a few aspects that were uneccessary (like the ramp fights) but otherwise thoughtful intelligent musing
I can't wait to find out the different ways black slime effects people.
uninitiated :- "eh?"
to the uninitiated :- "ok see that diamond?"
uninitiated :- "what you mean that really shiny pretty hard thing they make rings and hard drill bits out of?"
to the uninitiated :- "yes......and you know graphite?"
uninitiated :- "what that really soft almost greasy stuff that they have in pencils that you can make a mark with cos it comes apart so easy"
to the uninitiated :- "yes....by the way did you know that it also makes an excellent lubricant instead of oil"
uninitiated :- "No I didn't know that...that's interesting
to the uninitiated :- you know graphene?"
uninitiated:- "Know? No"
to the uninitiated:- "well its a new thing that you can make with carbon, a sheet of it that is only one molecule thick could make a hammock that could support the weight of a cat"
uninitiated:- "well whatever you say."
to the uninitiated:- "they're ALL the same thing, carbon, just different realisations/expressions/instances of it, different processes produce different manifestations of it.......oh and it can be used in conjunction with something ferrous to pick up radio waves for your radio
uninitiated:- FUCK OFF!"
to the uninitiated:- "No really it is.......you know like the BLACK GOO from Prometheus."
uninitiated:- "Oh I see :) "
should have been
"you mean the black goo is carbon"
to which the response is
"No its an allegory"
(you nearly blew it there....make sure your next response (as an unininitiated is the correct one)
those places being the scenes in the film
I quite like it though
And has a cyber thing and can see in red as well as normal and there's a guy who doesn't have enough time to even bleed?
enjoyed it more the second time around, maybe because i was so expectant first time around.
there is a lot to like about it, i think everyone plays their part well, its shot very well, looks great and explores some good ideas.
yeah it's flawed as fuck but still enjoyable.
and scientists are trying to restrain her, so she hits them with a bin and runs off. Goes and has a squid-section on her own, then toddles back and the scientists just totally blank her, like 'whatever, prick'.
