“Hidden Figures”

    School textbooks don’t really teach about history when it involves successful women. In US History books, they definitely do NOT mention the women that inspired the film “Hidden Figures”. No matter where we go, there’s very little or even at times, NO reference of successful black women. Why? Societies still want to suppress women, especially black women. There’s very little information available about successful black women in the math and science fields. School history books deny that they were around and if some of them are even mentioned, there’s very little known. If there are some things to … Continue reading “Hidden Figures”

“Rogue One: A Fictional Galaxy Far Away”

    The new Star Wars: Rogue One had so much hype while it was in production. There were many obvious special effects, including a computer generated Carrie Fisher of what she would’ve looked like from forty years ago. The storyline was a little difficult to understand from the beginning. The casting was diverse compared to the original. Some of the key characters that are other heritages: Riz Ahmed who’s from England of Pakistani origin portrayed a pilot, Bodhi Rook. Diego Luna a well-known actor from Mexico also portrayed a pilot, Cassian Andor. Donnie Yen played a blind fighter, Chirrut … Continue reading “Rogue One: A Fictional Galaxy Far Away”

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

  The Harry Potter prequel is a visually stunning film. It is most definitely not for very young children as the first Harry Potter is, but for those of the late teens to older in age. Since the author of the books also did the screenplay for the film, the storyline was flowing. Eddie Redmayne’s character is lovely as he always is in his main starring roles. The film is supposed to depict New York City around the 1920’s, but it was obviously not made there since it’s a period piece. Some of the costumes are absolutely beautiful, especially what … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Repetitive Cinema

Major film studio companies are spending more money than ever to try to make the next big blockbuster spectacular. The only problem is that those action packed and special effect movies usually only do excellent at the box office for the first and maybe the second week of release. Some big budget films have failed altogether at the box office leaving studios to be in debt rather than to make profit until the next project is done editing and released.   So why is the film industry suffering financially when they are supposed to be profiting? Do production crews truly … Continue reading Repetitive Cinema

Intergrating Gaming Into Films

The film industry has been using gaming API’s to help special effects in both preproduction and post-production. With video games looking more real just as if they were an actual movie or television show, film editors are implementing software prominent with creating video games to have better effects that couldn’t be used with actors in front of a green screen. Companies such as the San Francisco based, Unity, are having differrnt users in recent times from the film world verses gaming. Unity still has game developers using their software, but the film industry is wanting better effects of various kinds … Continue reading Intergrating Gaming Into Films

“The Real Robocop and Possibilities in the Real World”

With the release of the remake and updated version of the famed franchise, Robocop, it has sparked some debate in the science field again just as when the movie Iron Man had been released in theatres a while back.  Even though the ideas of making a human body compatible with machinery had been what comics are all about, it has made some scientist reconsider the possibilities.  Is there a way that humans can transform other humans to survive as part human and part machine? And in the case of Robocop, could they protect our streets from crime and help minimize … Continue reading “The Real Robocop and Possibilities in the Real World”
