How “The Walking Dead” Teaches Us About Doomsday

Posted by on Aug 12, 2016 in Movies |

Preparing for Doomsday is something that people have done since the beginning of time. However, in recent times it has come more to the forefront as different television shows have showcased the preparation work that is being done. The problem is some people are not sure how television shows like the Walking Dead are teaching them about preparing for Doomsday and they think it is nothing more than entertainment. By knowing how this helps educate people, it will be easy for people to feel good about the shows and know exactly what the show is doing.

DoomsdayThe primary thing the show is going to provide people is a glimpse into how life can be after all that is known today has been swept away. Now this does not mean that everything will be gone because some of the houses and other items are going to last, but this does not mean that everything is going to last. For example, communications can fall apart, and this often leads to a widespread panic among people. So people need to make sure they know about the fact this is giving the viewers a glimpse of what life can look like.

Learning the elements of what people will need to have available to them if the Doomsday were to strike at them. While most of the time people do not think about this, they need to realize this is going to be something completely different than what they were expecting. For example, people may find they need to have different clothing styles that are not bold and vibrant, but instead, will allow them to blend into the background more. This way they will not be seen and not become a target of the other survivors who may want what people have.

Coping with the long-term blackouts is something else people are going to learn how to deal with. When a Doomsday does happen, it is very unlikely that the electricity will remain on. This, in turn, means that everything that people have learned will go by the wayside as they will need to learn how to cook food on a fire, smoke their meat to preserve it, and even in getting the right way to make the light they need to have to keep everything away from them at night.

Doomsday scenarioInteraction with other humans is going to become a key component to surviving a Doomsday scenario. Yes, people may have some of their own supplies, but they generally are not going to last a long time, and they can run out. When they do run out it generally is going to lead to panic at the location. To avoid this, people will see that just like the show they are going to have to band together and form tribes, like the Native Americans, and do a job delegation to ensure that everyone can eat and everyone is taken care of properly and protected from any type of harm.

When people are looking at the different shows that are covering the Doomsday pictures they often do not think about the way this can impact them in a daily way. However, by knowing about the different ways the Walking Dead and the other shows are teaching people they will be able to survive a Doomsday scenario and not only survive, but come out thriving as one of the few to survive the challenges that were brought forth by surviving the Doomsday and knowing what they should do. Without this, people may end up like the zombies on the show.

Review of the movie Maggie

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Movies, News |

Earlier, or if you want to say it, back in the day, people watched movies when they went to movies or when some film was on TV. Today, we have that pleasure to watch movies in all kinds of ways. That is how the job of a film critic became even easier. If you say – what’s difficult in being a movie critic then we don’t have anything to talk about.Maggie-5

When I was a kid, there was nowhere we could hear about some movie. Maybe if we read TV guide we could find some title that is recommended for us. And look at us now, sitting here drinking Chateau de Chassilier. 9If you are not familiar with this sentence, then go and watch everything from authors of Monty Python, the real geniuses. One of the main film critics in life was the owner of the video store, which could you recommended a great comedy or a good thriller, a specialty has always been a Schwarzenegger film (as a special genre, of course). In any case, I am sorry that Schwarzenegger is not filming movies like this when I was little and visited the video store because this would be a great unknown both for me and for the owner of the video store. Schwarzenegger is here in a post-apocalyptic zombie world, starring as a sad lumberjack, and has a daughter that suffers from apathy that disease. Unlike the classic movie genre, where the bitten person for seven or eight minutes transformed into zombies, here we have the whole movie for it. Do you have figured out, it’s a metaphor for the sickness and the consequences that leave for those who are going through their final days and their loved ones? Maggie relies on the current post-Walking Dead world, which is in the movies, in addition to speeding the zombies, completely ok to stop and mourn those who are no longer with us. 

Zombie girl plays little actress from a movie called Little Miss Sunshine, who plays in some independent (semi) hit, just to remind us that she grew up and that time passes, and we all grew older. Arnold is unexpectedly great in the role of the father who cannot come to terms with the fact that it is impossible that in the final seconds to save the world, and all be happily ever after. Plus, Schwarzenegger as great in this movie when he cried and he surely made us crying watching him this movie. But not in a negative way, like we cried while we watched some of your awful movies or we cried at the end of Terminator when he sacrificed. He was actual, in this movie a good actor.

In conclusion, this is an excellent movie for the first date with a girl, who said that she likes independent movies and Walking Dead series. If you are not in a dating world, then this is a good movie if you want to assure yourself that Schwarzenegger is not a bad actor.

Review of movie High-Rise

Posted by on May 26, 2016 in Movies, News |

HIGHRISEPOSTEREnglish films with dystopias are scarier than others. I guess because English films are regularly more depressed than American, with all the sadness, poor families, children who are dying and depressing music and atmosphere. Well, High-Rise falls into this category. Director Ben Wheatley, the director, known for movie titles such as Kill List and Sightseers, made his most complex film to date, but also the most confusing, because in many cases you are not sure you know what is happening in front of you. The film follows a young doctor, played by Tom Hiddleston, who is moving into a newly built skyscraper, which is a little town for itself, with a kindergarten, a supermarket, a swimming pool, gym and, most importantly, residents are divided into classes. For instance, the poorest are at the bottom while the rich people are upstairs.

 High-RiseThe middle class, where our doctor is centered, is in the middle of the building, and there is a silent hatred of the penthouse, where he lives and towards the architect of the whole project (Jeremy Irons). A similar metaphor for dummies has had movie Snowpiercer, but this is developed in a much better way. The film is based on a book of J.G. Ballard from the 70s, so the action is located in those years, although situation resembles some futuristic seventies, like in famous movie A Clockwork Orange, by Stanley Kubrick. In general, the whole film relies heavily on the atmosphere of some Kubrick’s movies. After one party of the middle class, the richer team wants to respond with the more crazy party and little by little, one crazy bizarre assembly of various events, and we got a war of classes, where everything seems like an actual war. Since the film has drawn you into the story’s nice setting, and the atmosphere of good actors and seductive look, you have to close your eyes on a few things. The most annoying situations are connected with violence, because the struggle between the classes and changing wives for food, could easily be avoided, by people simply leaving the building, but then we wouldn’t have complications in the plot. But well, it could be just me being a smartass.

1035x690-tom-1800-1402674451I watched Hiddleston for the first time, not as a superhero or a villain with tedious costume, and I was pleasantly surprised especially with his method approach to acting. Among others, there are Luke Evans, who all the time looks like a drunken Richard Burton in the movies of the 60’s, and Elizabeth Moss, while Sienna Miller once again was that pretty girl that can be easily replaced with some pretty flower.  All in all, what would Americans say – a beautiful mess of the film.

It’s an assembled cast, and it gives a new dimension to the movie. The main actor is better than the others, and that’s normal. As I said, it has that atmosphere of Kubrick’s movies, so if you are his fan, you should watch this movie. And if you are not Kubrick’s fan, well then don’t ever watch any movie. He is the legend and probably the best director ever.
