Steve Ditko, 1963
That’s some gutsy cosplay, yo. She looks a bit too old for it though. Still, it’s really good, me thinks.
the silver triangles look too flat, but look at how she did the mazinger-eyes-esque chest crest, looks great and sturdy as fuck. fairly how I’d imagine it’s supposed to look.
Caught up on some movies yesterday I’ve been meaning to watch and thought I’d share some opinions on them.
Robocop 2014: Mostly awful. Characters are bland, action is forgettable and the action scenes try too hard to ape Michael Bay. There are some redeeming concepts in the movie but it’s not really enough to justify sitting two hours through schlock in my opinion. Whoever designed the movie’s future concepts really went all out. There’s a lot of nice little touches all throughout the movie to show that it’s teh footur. The EDF robots are nice and remind me of something from Metal Gear Solid; I wish they were in the movie more. Robocop himself has some great subtle animations to show that he’s not quite human. His movements are just slightly off-putting that you catch it but don’t think too much of it at the time. It’s a nice touch and I give props to the movie’s design department. It’s too bad everything else about the movie sucks.
Transcendence: Pretty decent. I don’t think it’s a movie that would be for everybody since it’s pretty slow and somewhat philosophical. It seems to try to straddle the line between being a deep, philosophical movie pondering on the meaning of human life and being a cool hip sci-fi movie that will draw in the crowds. It doesn’t quite manage to pull off either but I still enjoyed it. Except I kept thinking about things that pulled off the exact same concept better, like Serial Experiments Lain or maybe even The Zero Theorem (I haven’t seen Zero Theorem yet so don’t quote me on that).
God’s Not Dead: Surprisingly decent. I’m usually very hard on Christian based movies since frankly, they’re usually terrible. But I was pleasantly surprised with God’s Not Dead. It manages to get its message across without slapping you across the face… most of the time. The acting is decent and while the plotlines seem random and unorganized at first they manage to come together well enough in the end. I didn’t like how they showed the Duck Dynasty guy as being an upstanding Christian and some of the non-Christians veered straight into cartoon villain territory with their realism. And I guess the Newsboys helped sponsor the movie or something because man they were all over the place. By the end of the movie you might be wondering whether it’s Jesus or the Newsboys who save people. But if you can get past the stock character tropes, some mildly unsettling situations (No Duck Dynasty guy, I can’t, nor will I ever, take you seriously as a Christian when you say homosexuality will lead to bestiality. And did the Muslim father have to beat his daughter?) it’s one of the better Christian films I’ve seen. We’ve still got a long way to go but it’s a step in the right direction.
people say ‘I love you’ in a lot of different ways
'get some sleep'
'here have my fries'
'Im gonna draw you something'
'yeah i'll buy it for you'
