The trend in movies about dystopia seems to come and go, and 70s sci-fi was full of them. From A Clockwork Orange in 1968 and on into the 80s with 1984 in 1984, it was a unique perspective to see into a world that might be far more idyllic, yet full of chaos at the same time. Even now, we are still seeing this with newer films like Divergent and The Hunger Games franchise.
This film is not only action packed but filled with drama and character building that we have come to expect from the Marvel franchise. The story draws you in and doesn’t let go, not even at the end. You see more than just the shield toting Captain America, we get to see Steve Rogers as a human being having to deal with the same things that veterans have to each and every day. True he does have some gifts that let him cope but he is dealing with them on a day to day basis as each vet must.
Well, its that time again. The time that I rant about something that I have seen in the news that would only make sense to the right wingers and their women hating attitudes. Today on HLN I saw Robin Meade giving a news run down on how there are now more single people in the USA than there are married couples. Why this is news is beyond me but she further went to say that there were fears that this would hurt the economy. The reasoning is that married couples spend more than singles do on products and services. I can think of many that would benefit from marriage in America. Lets take a look at them, shall we?
“Once upon a time warp in deep space, the struggle between the nice & the rotten goes on…” starts the rolling introduction to this pop culture spoof on mainstream sci-fi movies, from Star Wars to Planet of the Apes and even Heavy Metal, no one is safe! Featuring a galaxy of stars and veterans from many of the movies in the Mel Brooks franchise, this never movie never ceases to keep up from laughing from beginning to end. Mel Brooks stars as the bumbling President Skroob of planet Spaceballs, as well as the wise alien sage, Yogurt. Skroob and his incompetent henchmen, Colonel Sandurz (George Wyner) and Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis). The people of Spaceballs have polluted their air so heavily that they intend to invade the beautiful, peaceful planet of Druidia to steal their fresh air. The thing is, Druidia has its atmosphere locked down, so the Spaceballs are going to have to do something seriously treacherous to get them to open the sky shield.
Quake II is better the first game. Quake II has a different storyline than the first game. This game is a Sci-Fi action game and it is a really fun game. The storyline in this game is about these aliens called cybernetic Strogg, and how they attacked Earth. Now, these marines are going to attack their home planet to get their revenge for attacking Earth. This game is more gory than the first game and more body parts are flying everywhere. The Stroggs in this game look like the Borg from Star Trek, but stroggs look more scary and ugly.
