The 100 S4E6: "We Will Rise"

We Will Rise exemplifies what is both going right—and wrong—with this season of The 100. — Maybe this whole review will be one big confession and reflection back on season four thus far, and I’m okay with that. We’ve hit the halfway point and it’s a good time to assess where the season stands so far and what is working and what isn’t.

Déjà Vu - Are Remakes & Reboots Damaging Modern Hollywood ?

"A déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something." — So said Carrie Ann-Moss' Trinity in the groundbreaking 1999 science fiction hit, The Matrix, a film about a future humanity held captive as slaves in an artificially controlled world created by sentient machines. The dèjà vu of which Trinity speaks relates to something repeating itself within the Matrix which represents a glitch or flaw in the system that runs this complex world. It's the subject of repetition within a complex system, in this case the Hollywood system, that has brought us the recent news that Warner Bros, the studio that made The Matrix and its two 2003 sequels is to remake The Matrix less than two decades after it first hit the big screen. Now remakes aren't the new trend that many would have us believe, on the contrary remakes are something that have been fairly common within the Hollywood system for decades going back to the transition from silent films to talkies.

 When does a critic loose their Imagination?

When does a critic loose their Imagination?

What happened to the days when we would go to the movies and let our minds drift off into a world unlike our own? When did this art form dive deep into the realm of extreme dissection? Why can't we separate out logical minds for a few hours to just simply enjoy a unique and amazing platform that we hold so close to our chests? In our cynical world that criticizes people from being who they truly are, we are also letting go of something that we should be gripping onto with all of our might...Imagination. We have critics for just about all aspects of our lives. Film, food, vacations and music. We over analyze, poke and prod all forms of art because we all have our own idea as to what art is and what it should look like. We all grew up reading wonderful stories and built up in our own minds how all the players need to look should that acutely come to life one day. As a child, I never once watched a movie and thought ''The casting is all wrong. Why did the director choose to use a glide cam when a handheld shot would simply serfice'' It's because we let our imaginations guide us to many places that we believed to be exist. When we place art as our career thats fine. But taking the magic away from the reason why you got into that profession in the first place is depriving you the truly pleasure in what you do for a living...creating something out of nothing.
