You might be someone who hasn’t watched Daredevil before. Maybe you have. All I know for sure is that this television show is a masterpiece. That’s a bold statement, but I assure you it’s for a good reason. Well, six actually.
A stunning narrative of captivity and innocence through the eyes of a child.
I’m sure you’ll agree parenthood means wanting the best for our children. We want to shield them from anything and everything that could harm them, anything that threatens their innocence.
We can do more, buy more, live more but we’ve never been less free.
What can money buy, really? People say it brings you happiness but in today’s world it locks us in a perpetual cycle of reliance.
Space doesn’t look that bad after all!
Not too far into the future, mankind finds a way to travel the long distances to visit other planets. That’s not unlike many stories we’ve been told before.
During a mission on Mars a sandstorm forces a space crew to leave behind a member of the team, who is presumed dead. Again, we’ve been there, done that.
We don’t know what we don’t know about artificial intelligence.
For some, reaching the technological singularity brings nothing but excitement. But for others there aren’t many things scarier than not knowing what that will mean for us. It’s hard for humans to admit but we are a relatively advanced, yet young and primitive species and Ex Machina shows us this in a big way.
An anticlimax waiting to happen?
So, here we have a classic man meets woman situation. A loving husband, Noah, takes his family on a regular summer holiday to his in-Laws enormous mansion in a small town far from the big city.
In a small town cafe he meets a beautiful waitress who is married too. At this point, with the look in his eyes when they first meet we know that no matter how hard he fights it, no matter how good a father he seems to be, he’s going to cheat with this woman.
A lesson on marriage and life.
When I think of Ben Affleck, no memorable qualities come to mind.
I don’t know him personally so it’s likely I’m misjudging the guy. He’s probably got a great personality!
I just don’t see it come out in his performances on screen. Luckily, that’s just what his character, Nick Dunne, needs in Gone Girl.
