Portal

It seems a little dumb for me to build a gaming PC but not actually play games. Of course, I want to, but I often spend my time re-reading fanfiction instead of playing games, or catching up on movies or TV shows.

(Yea, I’m a weirdo.)

Anyway, I recently bought a whole bunch of games during Steam’s Summer Sale, and I decided randomly to just give Portal a go. And man oh man, am I glad I bought the game and played it.

The Dark Knight – Creating the Ultimate Antagonist

That is a wonderful breakdown of the Joker in what is still the best superhero movie I’ve ever watched. Marvel has some great films that equal or even supersede The Dark Knight Rises for me, but the second film in Nolan’s Batman trilogy is hands down the best superhero film for me.

The Joker is the sort of villain I want to be able to write, that I wish more authors and scriptwriters can write so that we have more epic films. Unfortunately, it’s so much easier to write a generic, formulaic villain than one as complex as Nolan’s Joker.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – Trailer 2

AHHH!!!! DARTH VADER!!!!!

Also, Donnie Yen’s English is pretty good. And I ❤ him too.

A grimmer Star Wars is something to really look forward to. The series was built on a more optimistic, heroic style. But the word ‘war’ is in the title of the series, and finally we’re getting something more realistic.

I really need to dampen expectations before the hype train gets derailed by a potentially bad movie.
