The 100 is a Great Show

I binge watched all of The 100 recently. All 5 seasons while programming, and I love it. I'm a big sucker for sci-fi shows and it's good to see a new one show a lot of promise. The first season was probably my favorite since they were in space and things were very unknown. I have found season 3 and 5 to be the most dullest. The seasons with allie and the chips wasn't very thought out as it could have been. They could have made it a lot more like The Matrix adding in way more cool sci-fi elements but ah well. 

I mean whats not to love? you got some extremely hot chicks in here who are great actors. throw in some sci-fi and some action fighting scenes, Clark is also an Aussie like me, so it's interesting seeing her accent change in the show and in interviews. I also find Echo and Octavia pretty damn hot. Her saying "You are one crew or the enemy of one crew" is forever stuck in my head.

The only problem so far is season 5 feels like its being stretched out a bit too much, sometimes one problem T.V shows have after too many seasons is the writer isn't fleshing out the ideas very well and they kinda drag on without remaining interesting. So far S5 has had far too many politics involving Octavia and the tribes rather than keep the focus on the main survival and new developments coming there way. Season 4 was a good example of the writing being better since it added new elements you didn't see coming, from going back to space, coming down, Clark surviving on her own and even Ravens fight with the medical problem and getting the ship back up. Exactly what sci-fi should be like.

They better not cancel the show before it ends or I'll be angry! :P

House MD

Been pretty addicted to the show House MD lately.  It's a great show. I can really relate with the main character since he's a Misanthrope which means he hates people. I also hate people, I always see the stupid arguments on Facebook and think why are people like an angry mob bickering over stupid stuff? It always just seems ridiculous. I generally keep to myself a lot these days.

The downside to watching medical shows is it makes you a hypercondriac hearing all these rare illnesses and you start to think you have the disease mentioned in the show. It's actually a common problem for medical students too, known as Medical Students Disease where they believe they have the illness they are researching. 

Still either way I love it, it's interesting learning about the human body and it's very creative the way the Gregory House diagnosis his patients, it's very compelling and from an emotional point of view of the patients seeing what they may go through. Would highly recommend this show if you like medical shows. It's up the top as one of the best.

The Matrix

The Matrix was released in 1999 and to this day I still believe it to be the best movie ever released. Not only did it have great characters and awesome fighting scenes, but the storyline changed movies, games and pop culture forever. Referencing the matrix that we are all stuck in has become such a common reference it's a household name. The fact is it appeals to people that believe the world we live in is fake. You could take that in a literal way or take it in a more figurative way as such that the general person doesn't know whats going in life.

Of all movies in the world I believe are a must see, it is this one and the 2 sequels. It also has some of the best fighting choreography I've ever seen. It's fast but also very technical. The scene where he fights 100s of agent smiths is my favourite fight scene ever made. The moves he uses are damn right cool. 

The movie explores so many different subjects, from programming, gaming, virtual worlds, wool over our eyes, the mirror reflection, what is real and what is not real, fighting, love, survival, machines AI and more.

Pacific Rim Uprising Review

The new Pacific Rim Uprising movie is out and it is awesome. What more can you ask for? Giant aliens vsing giant robot mechs! Thats what it's all about right? 

It's the sequel from the first Pacific Rim. They are both great. The first shows how the Kaiju come through the breech, a portal between the alien world and earth. As the giant Kaiju get worse and bigger, they make the giant mechs to fight them. It's really interesting in the fact it takes 2 pilots to use because connecting the brain to a giant robot overloads the brain, so it takes 2 brains to handle the neural load. Even more interesting is the fact they share all there memories once connected and can get lost in a memory quite easily.

The 2nd improved on the first hugely. Not only were the battles better but the storyline developed further and we were introduced to a bigger variety of mechs. One thing that bugged me about the first is they mostly used their fists and not many weapons, I thought why? Why wouldn't they just use the rockets and guns first? surely thats more effective. The 2nd solves this by making the mechs have a lot bigger arsenel. 

10/10 fully recommend you see both movies now.
