Netflix: Altered Carbon

 

Netflix is diving into a new cyber-punk/Black Runner sci-fi with their upcoming series.  Altered Carbon looks at a world where a persons consciousness can be digitized and human bodies are interchangeable.  Death no longer is permanent so why fear death.

Based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex, and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent. Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder … that of Bancroft himself. Altered Carbon launches on Netflix Friday, February 2.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Trailer 2 1080p

I asked a few people their thoughts on this trailer:

The Angry Ginger, @s7evendaysageek:
Epic might be over used…but Holy Shit! So much eye candy I’m
almost positive Willy Wonka directed it.

The “Uncanny” OZ
I’m thinking it’ll be okay.

☆BaronessB☆
If Rey goes dark dude I’m tearing up my girl power poster….

History of Bad Ideas, @BadIdeasPodcast
it’s so beautiful

So there you are folks the last trailer (well that is what they are saying) before the December 15th release. Like you I am looking forward to seeing the next chapter. Also like you I am hoping that we will see a new path. A different direction and not rewrite of ‘Empire’.  If have to realized that like the original series 4,5,6 there has to be some struggle. The heroes can not win ever battle. So like the other movies do not be surprised that this movie does not end on a happy not. To tell a good story it has to. But please remember that just because it may have that ark does it not mean it is a rewrite of Empire or Attack of the Clones.

Try and enjoy it.

Pacific Rim Uprising Trailer HD

The globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity in Pacific Rim Uprising. 

John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) stars as the rebellious Jake Pentecost, a once-promising Jaeger pilot whose legendary father gave his life to secure humanity’s victory against the monstrous “Kaiju.”  Jake has since abandoned his training only to become caught up in a criminal underworld.  But when an even more unstoppable threat is unleashed to tear through our cities and bring the world to its knees, he is given one last chance to live up to his father’s legacy by his estranged sister, Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi)—who is leading a brave new generation of pilots that have grown up in the shadow of war.  As they seek justice for the fallen, their only hope is to unite together in a global uprising against the forces of extinction.

 Jake is joined by gifted rival pilot Lambert (The Fate of the Furious’ Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old Jaeger hacker Amara (newcomer Cailee Spaeny), as the heroes of the PPDC become the only family he has left.  Rising up to become the most powerful defense force to ever walk the earth, they will set course for a spectacular all-new adventure on a towering scale.

Movie Monday: A Sci-Fi Action Short Film: “SEAM”

This is a fantastic little short film. I found it after I was watching another short film to talk about. But this film really grab me for it’s action and story. Take a few minutes and watch it. No matter who or where we are we all love Sci-Fi

In the not-too-distant future, a tenuous peace between humans and remarkably human-like “machines”—some don’t even know they’re not real—is tested when synthetics begin spontaneously exploding. A military-led search for these unwitting suicide bombers begins, sending a terrified machine woman and her human partner on the run. Directed by the talented Dassani brothers, Elan Dassani and Rajeev Dassani!
