  • Dark (2017) - Spoilers and discussions

    My father's day present was a day to watch Dark. I binged the whole thing in a day and absolutely loved it.

    I know this a spoiler thread but I'll refrain from any spoilers until more people have had time to watch it. 

    I think they managed to wrap every thing up and answer all of the major questions. Quite the accomplishment considering the complexity of the show! The Dark website is great if you want to recap all of the events in a characters arc. 

    My big take away is that just about every character in the show was motivated by love. In some situations love for each other. In most instances for their children. A reoccurring theme is how far someone will go to save the life of their loved one. 

    I'm hoping to do a rewatch at a slower pace, but overall I'd rate Dark in my top 5 series of all time. I love time travel so if course I'm a little biased, but they pulled it off without any major plot holes and that alone is impressive. Also kudos to the sound track for this show, what a great score!

    Who else is excited for tomorrow?!

    Can't wait.
  • Should I buy a gaming pc?

    I've been building my own computers for over 20 years. The one big advantage is that the games are way cheaper than console games. The other is you'll have access to a larger library of games.

    You can even build a mid tier PC and play most games fine. You can also swap out parts when you need, like upgrading your graphics card or throwing in more RAM. I'm a PC games all the way so to me there aren't many cons.

  • Children of Men!!!

    Great cast, loved it! 

    I agree, I don't think Jasper is his Dad. Julian mentions she is sorry about his Mom, but I took that for sorry for your Mom passing away.

    Also, I think the oral thing is more of a tactic of his than anything else. He mentions how the guy's breath stinks and it immediately stops him from talking about how they're going to kill him. He uses it again to deflect attention when the guy tells him it's a non-smoking facility. As soon as he mentions the guy has something in his teeth he forgets all about the cigarettes that Theo puts through the machine. Can you think of a better way to deflect attention than to tell someone they have something stuck in their teeth? It's actually brilliant. I think this is more a way to show you that he is 'suave'. Like how Julian mentioned the time he invited a bunch of Police up to negotiate. He seems to be able to talk and figure his way out of tough situations and I think those two small scenes are good at showing how well he can deflect attention away. 

    Also, this video is pretty good about explaining some of the stuff in the background.

    Alfonso Cuaron is really on the next level in his film making. I really appreciate the techniques he uses. We just got done watching Gravity for the first time, and while I don't think it's nearly as good as Children of Men, it is a visual masterpiece. I really appreciate the film even more now after diving into it again for a second watch (many years later).
