Buffy The Vampire Slayer is 20 this week, and I know that there’s a lot of “What I learned from it” posts on the internet but I wanted to made my own because this wasn’t just another TV show for me, it was a lot more than that. Buffy taught me about feminism obviously, she taught me that you […]

Let’s talk about Black Mirror for a moment

*contains spoilers for the first 4 episodes of season 3

 

You know how it’s called BLACK mirror? So what the fuck happened to them this season???!!

Ok, first episode: What’s the difference between this one and the ones they did in the first 2 seasons? And how is it really “black”, you only have one crazy person there, the others, like the truck driver and her brother, realized this is bullshit and they are happy. So, you don’t HAVE to be in this shity game. Anyway, it was a really weak episode and I felt like her biggest problem is that she’s crazy, not that the others are.

Episode 2: Ok so what the fuck was that!?!? Like seriously! The only point you took from this waste of time is: when your mom calls you, YOU PICK UP. That’s it! That was the only point of the episode, other than that it was a lame copy of inception. I really hated this one to be honest.

Episode 3: What is wrong here? really I’m asking. They gave the cheating basterds what they got AND put away 2 pedophiles! How is this a bad use of technology??

Episode 4: Ok they are fucking kidding me right? This is literally “pink mirror”, this is just so lovey dovey and perfect future. WTF?!

Now the only thing that changed is the fact they moved to Netflix, but maybe that’s enough for them to ruin everything and start to think positive. This 4 episodes were mostly a love song for technology , and there was nothing BLACK about them.

So yeah I’m really disappointed from this season so far, and I find it hard to continue watching. If I wanted a stupid regular drama I’d watch  any other shit that’s on TV, but I was looking forward to the dystopian future this show gave us for the last 2 seasons, and I guess enough money will change even the darkest shows.

So thank you Netflix for showing me a real life black mirror.

Back in the cave

Yesterday I tried to have a conversation with a friend about the new Pixar short film Borrowed Time. Now this friend is a film student and she goes to lectures about films and all that.

But when I tried to start a debate about this, and what I think about the issue, she blocked me and wasn’t very interested to talk about it. Now I don’t know if this is because she think I have no idea what I’m tallking about (tho I do have a B.A in the subject, she doesn’t know this). Or because she just doesn’t want to share or talk about what she knows.

But this is something that happens a lot lately, pepole just don’t talk about things, like really talk about them you know?

This is also the problem I have with this short film.

I mean yeah cool, this is a fucking awesome film but why don’t go all the way with it?! Why do I need to watch it online? Why don’t they have the balls to relase it like their other shorts?

If you start something, finish it! If you want to put an important issue on the table then for God’s sake PUT HIM ON THE TABLE.  I don’t want anymore singing mountains or bitchy birds, if you’re going to do a short like this then realse it the right way!

People are too afraid to try or to talk about new things in pubic. And this is what I “hate” about pixer and about socity these days. It’s like they are opening a door but keeping it shut at the same time.

And this annoy me.

Let’s talk about Arrow and Sleepy Hollow for a moment

This post contains spoilers for both shows

In the last episodes of these two shows they killed off a female lead, now let’s be completely honest: in the case of SH it was a great decision because Abbie was just a bad character.

Of course it was the writer’s fault for writing her so badly, but the acting wasn’t so good either. I personally liked the new FBI agent much better and hope she’ll stay. 

But that’s not the point, the point is shown much better in Arrow. Killing off Laurel was just stupid! And I’m not a big fan of the show but I can recognize really dumb ass sexist writing when I see it. Even in the killing of Abbie, a character I don’t care about at all.

Both these characters were killed off by one reason and one reason only: they couldn’t  have been used as a love interest for the leading male. It was clear with Laurel and Abbie and Ichabod had no chemistry what so even and it shows.

When a TV show kills off a female lead just because she can’t be a love interest are not only sexist and disgusting, this is a given, but it shows how little TV writers think of their famale audience.

“Here are some hot shirtless guys for you ladies, and their girlfriends”. This is the mind set of these writers, and in 2016 it’s about time this bullshit will end.

TV Logic #1

Sometimes there’s no need to write a long post, a picture will do the trick

I can’t draw for shit, sorry.

There Are 4 Kinds Of Critics

1. The Non-Critics: They don’t really criticize, they just tell you what happened. They write down the entire plot and end their post with a question mark: So what did you think about the episode?

2. The I Love Everything As Long As I Get Paid To Write About The Thing: They have only good things to say about everything they write about. They’ll never go against the mainstream, if the show has a big ratings then they love it. If the show is a fan favorite then they love it and so on and so on.

3. The elitists: They only love HBO or Showtime shows, stuff like that. If a big named actor is in it they love it, if a big named director is in it they love it. If the show won an Emmy it’s their favorite ever.

4. The actual real critics: There aren’t many of them, not in the big sites and papers anyway. They actually say what they think, if they didn’t like something on a show they love they will say it. If they didn’t like a well loved show, they’ll say it. And they will explain exactly why and what bothers them. I’m not talking about trolls, who just talk shit about everything they dislike without giving a normal explanation to WHY they hate that thing so much. Because trolls can’t explain themselves, they only hate things that people love to get on their nerves. 
No, I’m talking about people who actually list the problems they have with a show or a movie or whatever, even if it’s their favorite. Because in order to really critic something you need to be able to see it’s flaws, or to see it’s strengths, no matter how you feel about the actors in it or what others think of it. It means to not be afraid to say what you really think about the thing.
The problem is that most of the times people just disregard these OPINIONS as just trolls, and that is both sad and annoying. The fact that you can just dismiss someone else just by saying they’re a troll just because you disagree with them, it’s actually you just being a troll.

I’d like to think that I belong to the 4th kind, and if you ever disagree with my opinions feel free to start a discussion and try to show me that I’m wrong. I’d be happy to be able to actually have a civilized discussion on the internet some day.

True Detective Season 2

So the writers set down and thought “What did people most liked about our show? We know! The fucked up characters!”

So what they did is take that thing they knew worked and just give a flying fuck about the rest, you don’t need a good plot, you just need fucked up characters, the more fucked up they are the better. It doesn’t matter that they’re ridiculously fucked up it’s not even relatable, as long as they are really fucked up.

You see how many times I used the words “fucked up”? That’s how they use the idea of it on the characters… Way too much!

This season is so boring, the plot is not important to them they didn’t even say why everyone cares about that dead guy. The character’s development, well, they’re fucked up and then you find out they’re fucked up some more.

This season fell for the worst notion in TV and Movies, they just want money. It doesn’t care if they don’t have anything new to say or if they don’t really have a good plot idea, as long as they over use the one thing that worked before they assume you’ll keep liking them.

And the sad thing is that it looks like people still fall for that trick. But personally, I’ll be waiting for a show with a little more thought behind it’s plot.
