Revenge

September 13, 2014

I have grown tired of the revenge genre, but I haven’t of Keanu Reeves.  And this looks like it doesn’t take itself too seriously: John Wick.

 

Then there is Stellan Skarsgård aping Liam in In Order of Disappearance which is supposed to be “A blackly hilarious rampage of revenge” which looks reminiscence of Guy Ritchies’ greatest hits, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch or as The List puts it, “like Death Wish set in Fargo, only funnier and bloodier”.

For myself, I have been watching some TV lately, and really enjoyed the third season of Person Of Interest. I am not saying it is good, just that I enjoyed it. What I can say is amazing, however, is Amazon Studio’s pilot, Hand of God. It was criticized for not having “enough action”. That kind of criticism was leveled at The Wire and Breaking Bad, too.

    Another film coming out: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/a_walk_among_the_tombstones/

    Unrelated, i hope we get this tech in other games. Much better than similar tech from 5-10 years ago lol.

      Zos, thanks for the heads up on both of these. Walk Among the Tombstones could be good, but it needs to be better than Taken 2: Now We’re After Your Mom.

      As for the face scanning, having ones faces in the game is actually hugely fun. Don’t think I will buy the game, but again, having one’s likeness in the game makes it very personal.
