Just this guy that Rants and Raves about stuff. Also A Video Maker and a pretty hoopy frood.
Alright, I will admit I have been one (sort of) when it has come to a movie that I felt messed up the original story and made it sort of stupid and did not stay true (Evil Dead 2013) But even I have to admit I did enjoy aspects of the movies and I look forward to see what comes next.
But, and this is a big but. I hate the fans that wont even admit that there is something good in a movie/book/comic/etc. just because it reused aspects or didn’t meet there incredibly high standards. Now I will admit I do have highish standards, but I have been watching movies all my life and they sort of became my way of life because I have never had a lot of good friends. So I would amerce my self in Movies and TV shows. Having people tare something apart just because it re-uses aspects and has a few plot holes doesn’t mean it is bad and that the Writer/Director should be punished for it.
People who know me, know I hate remakes. I feel they are very rarely done correctly and it suffers greatly. But after seeing the fans who have been tearing apart Star Trek: Into Darkness, all I have to say is SHUT UP.
My God, You complain about no new Ideas and using old ideas from Other trek Movies. There are no new Ideas when it comes to writing, Everything has been done. There are just veneration of the same old Ideas. You may disagree with me, and I am fine with that. I quote Voltaire when he said “I may not agree with what you say, But I defend to the death your right to say it”
I am not trying to say that the people who are mega fans don’t have a point but when the argument that there is no new Ideas is presented I think even they would have to step back and think about it before tackling such an argument, Any one would.
And then there is the complaints about who is playing characters that were established as being a different ethnicity. Oh yes, this old chest nut. You are fine with an African American playing Nick Fury, but if a White guy (who is a great actor) plays a character that was previously Native American, you flip your shit. I am sorry but that is some of the most back ass-wards thinking I have ever seen.
So my Final thoughts to Mega fans? Take it easy, relax turn your mind off and just let the movie play. Think about it after the movie when you are driving/walking/riding/etc. Home and then start thinking about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the film.
Well I think that’s about it for now. Till next time . Cya in Cyberspace.
The dad cat liked to hang out in the sink by himself
AND THEN THE KITTENS FOUND HIM
HE LOOKS SO ANNOYED
I DIDN’T SIGN ON FOR THIS SHIT.
That annoyed look is just like my dad’s when I would find where he was hiding when I was a kid. The look of precious alone time just being sucked out the window.
Alright gather round boys and girls I have many writing pet peeve’s. One of the major ones has to deal with how writers kill characters. Now if we are talking comic books, Doesn’t bother me much. I know that Killing a charter in a comic book is much different than killing a character in a novel. Having said that It still bothers me in some sort of way. But there being so many writers coming an going on cretin titles it’s hard to get to angry over it.
No I am speaking of novel writers that kill there characters after they have done a series of books but had no plan on doing it from the beginning. See, I hate when some one just gets tired of writing a character they spent years creating and so instead of leaving it open to write anything later on or what not they kill the character saying “Well I’m done with that for good”.
I don’t care about that. If you don’t want to write a character any more then fine don’t write about that character anymore, But to kill the character that just annoys me. I am one that believes that if you create a character you have to sit down and think “When I am done with this character am I going to kill them or just stop writing about them?” because that way you know going in what you are going to do, and can give readers hints as to what will happen.
Like lets say I created a character had no plans as to what the character future held then killed them off when I had no idea what I was going to do with the character from the beginning. See to me that just seems lazy, and it’s not something I would do.
Now when you are talking about TV shows, Comics or other things that is hardly ever written by just one writer and in each few months/episodes/issues the writer changes and they kill a character, that makes a bit more sense because some one higher up ordered it to happen so there was a idea to kill said character. But if there is a singular writer and they just out of the blue think “I’m going to kill that character ” that gets annoying.
I have made myself a promise (even though It’s not overly possible that it will ever happen) I will not Kill a character that I have created in a story unless I have thought about doing it when creating said character. Even if it is a passing thought, I think a writer should explore all options IE: Make a plan if the live and a plan if they intend to kill said character and hold on to that and look back on it every once and a while, Maybe even make updates to the plans every once and a while, but don’t just go blindly into creating a character, have a plan.
Till next time, Cya in cyberspace.
This post will be a story that I am writing, It will take place in a sort of interesting Idea. so I am going to play with it a little.
The Book that was
For my 25th Birthday I revieved a book. The book was a Diary or a Jorunal, or something like that, I am not sure what to call it really. What ever makes it sound more manly I guess. It sat in my room for about 3 years before I picked it up. Why did it sit around for so long, I be you wonder. I had no use for it, I was fully into the Digital media so some how a hard copy book for writing never really intrigued me. I though it was a crappy birthday gift, Like absolutely shitty. I remember thinking at the time “Who gave me this?” and “Is their any way to un-friend them in real life?”
But I digress, When I finally picked up the book and flipped to a random page a date appeared which happened to be January 1, 2016. It went on to detail how the day had gone and what had happened that day in great detail about the tragities and the happiness that had happened in my life during that time I filcked to an eairlyer page and it happened again. I thought this was odd, and almost scary but I had to know so I fipped to the first page, It was blank. I thought if I waited something would appear, I waited 2 seconds then 10 then a minute and nothing showed up, at the point I was ready to close the cover I noticed something as if something was shimmering then it got brighter and brighter till the letters glowed Gold and appeared on the page with a flurrish I had never seen. It said “These are the days of you’re life, The pages are blank till you look at a page. You may look ahead but if you read to far into that page you will not beable to effect how that day will happen. Once you read it, it will not change, that is how it will happen regardless of what you do. So use it wisely do not waist it, and Tell no one of it. And don’t Peak at the end.”
What do you think? Let me know.
