BCM320_Week 3_Akira (Disgustingly Beautiful)

BCM320 week 3 Akira thumbnailWho could have expected violence and gore to be so beautiful? I definitely didn’t think so either. The themes in this movie seem to escalate exponentially, starting off with a classic dystopian society; crime stricken, government corruption and abuse of power, that slowly grows into a single force causing chaos and destruction, finally ending in a large scale annihilation of Neo-Tokyo.

We as the audience, can’t relate with any of the context of the film unless:
1. We have grown up and lived in the same time and area of the director (Katsuhiro Otomo) and what he saw in 1970s Tokyo, or
2. (Which is really stretching the feeling of ‘relatability’) We have done something in our lives that has required a full restart as a form of ‘cleansing’ (whether it be getting rid of possessions and acquiring new ones, starting a project from scratch, etc.)

BCM320_Week 1_Gojira (a.k.a the worst movie of all time)

**THE 1954 FILM ‘GODZILLA’ WAS THE WORST FILM I HAVE EVER SEEN**

A semi in-depth explanation of why this movie was so terrible and excruciating to watch.

BCM320 week 1 godzilla thumbnail YOU WONT BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS SCENE!!!!!!

Now that I have your attention, I would like to clear up that the first line of this blog post is completely false, The 1954 film ‘Gojira’ (or Godzilla in English translation) was actually pretty good… for it’s generation.

What just happened was that you have just been… Clickbaited. That’s how it is these days isn’t?

If this doesn’t suggest anything, I practically live on online streaming sites, predominantly YouTube and Twitch. I probably spend more time on there than most normal people would. I have watched countless videos ranging from;

  • Gaming
  • Video-blogging (or vlogging as it should be called)
  • Reactions
  • Entertainment/Sport
  • Talk shows/Podcasts/News
  • TV re-runs
  • Music Videos
  • How-To’s
  • Memes/Compilations
