Or “Degradation of Society, Part 2”. (Just found this article on my PC. I wrote it awhile ago and forgot about it.)
The first time I wrote about this film, I spoke about the family as it was addressed in the LEGO Batman Movie. The second time, I compared Joker to Satan. This time, I’ll be talking about the secondary theme of the film: Being an enemy. There’s more talk about Satan and spiritual things here, so skeptics will be… skeptics. haha.
Finally got around to this follow up to a previous article I wrote some time ago. This is a short article. For another take and slightly more in-depth look, see my next article.
Let’s have a “relationship”. What an ambiguous term. Everything has a relationship. Neptune has a relationship with the price of tea in China… albeit a very distant relationship but a relationship nonetheless. (For example: The price of tea in China affects the spending power of the people, which in turn affects the costs of other commodities – locally and abroad – such as iron, which is used for making telescopes, spacecraft, and artificial satellites responsible for analyzing the surface of Neptune.)
It’s been a long and busy day for me. I woke up a couple hours before the crack of dawn so I could watch the launching of the Space X CRS-15 mission live. It was pretty cool. You can watch Space X launches live on their website on the webcast page. The Dragon capsule sent to space on top of the Falcon 9 is set to rendezvous with the International Space Station Monday morning at 5:30 ETC (eastern time). You can watch the berthing of the Dragon streaming on NASA TV come Monday morning.
Before the sun came up, you could see the ISS fly overhead from where I was at. It was a cool moment. There was also some other glowing orange object. At first, I thought it might have been first or second stage falling back to earth given how bright it was in the sky (even penetrating the clouds where I was at)… except that it seemed to be in the wrong location in the sky and it wasn’t moving.
I had originally written some huge articles but decided to synthesize my points and spare you the long rambling. You can thank me later. However, it does perhaps lose some eloquence… or congruity, so if you’re wondering why this article is so brief and seemingly disconnected, you at least now have a reason.
It’s time for a light-hearted article on this blog!
I went to go see Your Name in a theatre. I didn’t know you had such an interesting name. You may bow at any time – Japanese style, of course – but be sure to back away first so you don’t bump your computer monitor. Gee, I wish I could have a movie named after me… just kidding.
Like any award-winning movie, our hero and heroine repeat the title’s name over and over, supporting that typical time travel trope of only forgetting the most memorable part of your experience (if you’re good at remembering names, that is). Like many time travel stories, this romance separates our girl who leapt through time from her Satoru Fujinuma by a Stein’s gate. What a memorable trope.
The story is about a boy named Taki and a girl named Mitsuha who wake up and find themselves in each other’s bodies. As the story gradually progresses, they learn about each other through their interactions with friends and neighbors, find themselves in a desperate situation where they must work together, and by the end, they fulfill the much-anticipated happy ending and the audience isn’t walking away feeling like there are too many plot holes.
To summarize it in terms of genres: high-school, romance, drama, sci-fi, and eye-candy.
I’m going to start off with the story details and then eventually sing about the eye-candy.
Miyazaki directs a Zero. The film shoot revealed many deaths without showing one. And how many other cryptic ways of speaking about this movie can we utilize to describe this modern motion picture? A well-awarded (or nominated) documentary of many miserable failures? Yes, even that would be accurate. In this article, I briefly critique the Studio Ghibli film, The Wind Rises.
