A writer that loves to share his views and opinions about geeky subjects, especially Marvel and TV series related ones. Currently trying to turn my passion for writing into my career, while also working on my first English novel.
A The Last Of Us: Part II Experience
Another night, another nightmare. Another day, another panic attack. Just like her I keep seeing his face, hitting me as lightning bolts that shatter my spirit. The face I see is not the one I used to remember, and its shape is something more brutal and bloody, vehemently violating my soul. Battered, tormented, tortured. Covered in blood, desperately gasping for air. No chance of some last words or a proper goodbye: just one gaze which made us both realise that despite the tragedy that was going on he was telling us he was okay with what was happening and that, somehow, things would have been okay.
What will happen to Kim Wexler in the last season of "Better Call Saul"?
The latest season of Better Call Saul reached new high levels, bringing the tension near to the final climax of the show. The introduction of characters like Gustavo Fring and "Lalo Salamanca" added those Breaking Bad vibes that were already so successful in pleasing the audience, as those dynamics were introduced into the spin-off as well. After five seasons, the main plots of the show are all coming together for the grand finale: from Lalo looking for his revenge on Gus and Varga after a shocking survival to the attack on him organized by Fring himself, to Kim finally accepting and embracing her dark side.
The 7 worst things BoJack Horseman ever did
BoJack Horseman tells a story that is not usually told that often within the world of entertainment. BoJack is far from being the standardised main character that starts from a very low point to end up with a redemption: he will never find true, proper redemption in the series, even when it looks like he is on the verge of becoming a better person. He is such a bad person that he ends up hating himself, and his behaviours are a proof of this: BoJack clearly doesn't love himself and, no matter how hard he tries to get better, he seems to be trapped in a downward spiral towards self-destruction. Deep-down (really, really deep), though, BoJack is not an evil person, but this potential good side of him is buried by tons of harsh experiences, delusions, sick relationships, an extremely high dose of bad parenting and dangerous addictions.
To role-play or not to role-play: that is the question
Role playing is a widespread practise among the world of gaming (and not only within the video games industry), whose goal is to enhance and improve the bond between the player and the character who is being impersonated. Table top RPG games appeared for the first time on the market in 1974 with Dungeons & Dragons and have become quite popular nowadays, with examples such as the above mentioned D&D, World of Darkness, 7th Sea or Star Trek Adventures, to start with. When the whole concept of gaming went through its digital evolution, we can all imagine the possibilities that this implied: the chance to actually see a character and the world around it did nothing more than amplify the whole connection between player/playable character. With the never ending evolution of video gaming and the whole innovation of the story telling in games narrated through the eyes of a character (both in first person and third), this kind of connection grew stronger and stronger, and the chances to play games that allow the player to actually choose the actions of a character are several. Games such as Detroit: Become Human, Until Dawn, The Witcher Saga, Cyberpunk 2077 or The Elder Scrolls Series give the player the freedom to determine the actions they take (some more than others), actions that in most cases have a strong impact on the story itself.
Zack Snyder's Justice League: a romantic exception or a dangerous precedent?
Ask and you shall be given. After years of requests, petitions and demands the Snyder Cut of Justice League has reached the audience through HBO Max. When the American director stated that there was his version of the DC extended universe first team up film a massive movement came to support this cause, under the banner "#releasethesnydercut". Members of the cast and crew came through, too, with Jason Momoa himself to confirm that his version was "so sick", nourishing the curiosity and the desire of fans across the world to see the Justice League film that was generated by the work of Snyder. Especially since the version completed and modified by Joss Whedon didn't really achieve in its attempt to duel with the success that the first film of The Avengers had in 2012. Whedon's hand in that movie is extremely recognizable and so the film took a completely different direction from the one that Snyder meant for it, with the help of massive re-shooting session that changed a large part of the plot and the interactions between the characters, getting to the point that whole scenes and story-lines were cut off from the version that hit the cinemas in the end.
