Holy shit, it's raining true story movies.
Bleed For This (2016)
This starts as a normal boxing movie - some hot-shot boxer gets low, starts training, gets better, scores cool win. Thing is, that's just half of the movie, cause then he gets into car crash and breaks his neck.
And what he does? He screws gets into halo procedure and trains while having iron screws in his own fucking head. And fucking wins. And you may not believe this, but article at the usual site actually made me laugh because this time movie is not as fucking incredible as the truth. In movie the guy wears the metal thing on his head for 6 months. Real life? 3. In movie he starts training after a month after the procedure. Real life? 5 days passed.
As someone who broke some vertebrae myself, this is a movie I can strongly relate to, and this is damn impressive story.
Now this one is a bit weird. Basically, it's about a female news reporter who, unable to cope with a fuckton of stress, one day went and shot herself. Live on TV. In 1970-ies. Which was a definite direction into more interesting news, I can tell you that right now.
Quite honestly, I couldn't find the article on my preferred site, so here's another article, and this one is more praising and less fact-checking. I guess, we can assume that the outline is correct. She was weird in her own way, she was virgin, she shot herself on air.
As I said, we can't be sure, how many details are right, thought, obviously, the base of the story is correct - she did get fucking depressed over a guy she liked got out of her reach and over her work and generally over life. Personally, I did not get involved while watching this, but I really couldn't relate to the character, and maybe it would work better for you.
Hacksaw Ridge (2016)
Now this one is nominated for Oscars. And you can see why - glorious war movie, made by Mel Gibson, trying hard to be as epic and impactful as Saving Private Ryan. Only, in this one the private is the one saving everyone. And it actually happened.
How, I laughed hard when I realized, during the first part of the movie, what is the story here. Apparently, that guy - Doss - was a religious nut who didn't work on Saturdays and absolutely refused to carry and use ant kind of weapon. And he enlisted into the US Army to go fight Japanese. As a medic. And apparently, this fucker, who was ridiculed and bullied during combat training, turned out to be one of the bravest people out there - going out into artillery fire and saving about 75 people, one by one.
Obviously, there's the article for this movie. And from that we can see that this movie is very obviously going for some additional drama to get more viewers. Hero's father threatening his own wife with a gun - not exactly true. Hero meeting his wife while she was nurse - not true. Being court-martialed - nope, also not true, though, the guy was given some shit in the army, both from other privates, and from some officers. On the other hand, apparently, the guy really was as heroic as he was shown in the movie - he did save a lot of people, there are unconfirmed rumors of him even helping the enemy wounded, he really was blown up a bit, and - most amazingly - the assault of the ridge really was halted to allow him time to pray.
All in all - extremely well-made movie, which uses a lot of dramatization for the first part of it, but is pretty true to life in the second part.
This is something for your own facebook wall rather than thread. Also, yes, that makes it the 3rd thread like that on a site.
So, I was seriously pissed off at myself for not reading any book in a long while. And I really wanted to read something about dragons. And not just how people defeat dragons, but something with dragons as actual characters. And this book is part of the trilogy I found.
Now, I did not expect much. Not sure what I expected exactly. It is a fantasy story, with some humor, about a girl who gets more lucky than ordinary girl would be. Which is really simple. The story starts in a humorous way, and you expect things to be like that. But somewhere in the middle it gets much more serious, and even dark towards the end. And while the heroine of the story does perform some amazing things, the book occasionally brings her down to earth in a very realistic manner.
All in all, this is not a completely serious book, but it has interesting story, and, most importantly, pretty nice dragon characters, which is why I am reading it in the first place. So I will be going over next books too.
Danish student branded a terrorist after training as 'Lady Death' sniper to fight jihadis in Syria reveals she has lost everything
A Danish politics student who trained as a sniper to fight Isis in Syria has told how she has 'lost everything' after being labelled a terrorist - and now faces assassination by Isis.
Joanna Palani, 23, dropped out of college to join the battle against jihadis in Syria, spending nine-day stretches alone on the frontline with her Russian sniper rifle trained on Isis targets.
So yeah, I think we hear more stories like that recently - someone takes a rifle and goes to shoot them ISIS fucks. However, in olde days they would have been praised. But now...
The politics student was issued with a travel ban in September 2015. But she defied authorities to rejoin comrades in her battle-hardened Kurdish unit fighting ISIS in northern Syria from June to October 2016 because she says she couldn't bear to leave the women she had trained.
Now Joanna, who arrived in Denmark aged three with her family as refugees from Iraq, faces up two years behind bars for breaching the travel ban, intended to stop Danes from joining terror groups in the Middle East.
Pretty much, she got reward for hear head, set by ISIS. And her own country government wants to prosecute her for being the same as ISIS. Which is a bit retarded, seeing how they want her dead. This is really strange attitude towards someone who decides to fight what is globally considered a threat to everyone around.
Well, 2 more weeks. I have to say right away, not much has changed around here. I mean, sure, there is vicious fighting in the east, retarded Tatars are trying to blockade Crimea again, we are totally fucking up Minsk agreements, and Ukrainian militants are shooting each other across the country. Nothing new, really.
Exchange rate went as low as 26.8, but is not at 26.95. I am not sure why it generally goes down, so I will assume that exchange rate is still being controlled by the government directly. That, or dollar is not feeling too stable itself.
Pretty much, we have just 3 things I want to talk about. I mean, sure, as I mentioned, the retardation is not stopping. For example, Ukraine army has lost a whole squad of people in the east, and noone knows where it went, other squad recorded video-message criticism Poroshenko, and got stent to the very front lines, and one of the militants in this country is now claiming, that he is a direct descendant on Tutankhamen. But really, who wants to know stuff like that?
Mostly, it's more interesting to look outside now. And, looking outside, we can see Trump trying to figure what the fuck my country is even. Local mass media have been blowing out of proportion the future talk between Poroshenko and Trump, and already were celebrating the fact that Trump will 'surely support Ukraine against Russia', with no evidence to back this up.
Well, the talk happened. Poroshenko congratulated Trump on his presidency, and they talked a bit about calming down the situation at the east of the country. Which, is I can assure you, haven't been calmed at all after that.
It is important to note another thing. Some time after that talk Trump said, that he doesn't really know what is going on in Ukraine. And he wants to really know. So, there's some hope that he will try to investigate our situation. But most importantly, he isn't offering immediate support.
And Russia is obviously grabbing that idea. I mean, while we can't volatile, completely retarded country right next to its borders. So, Russia work hard on regulating situation in the east of Ukraine, and looking for ways to do something with us. And recently Lavrov (Foreign Minister of Russia in case you don't know) said very directly, what the fuck does Russia want from the whole Ukraine business.
First of all, Russia now puts most blame on Ukraine side, and specifically on Ukraine militant groups that are not controlled by army or government. Second of all, Russia actually puts less blame on west now, notably stating that OSCE can't deal with amount of violations on the front line. And finally, Russia presses the issue of decentralization of Ukraine.
What it means in proper-talk would be something like this: Russia will be offering western countries to just leave Ukraine alone. Because that bitch is too costly and too retarded. And to allow Russia to deal with the country as they want - which might as well result in re-working the country's borders. You know, extreme case of that possibility might result in me suddenly becoming citizen of Russia again.
Of course, that's just Russian position, and the next round of talks over Ukraine is just something that will happen, and noone can know how it would go.
And now something from inside the country. People are freezing to death. Quite literally, too - the amount of frozen this winder is counted in a few thousands. There are reports about people of some smaller cities - where there is close to no heating and temperature inside homes is about 8 C - are trying to forcefully occupy heating and power stations, where there is at least warm. So yeah, such fun we having...
Oh, and to top it all off - organizers of Eurovision (apparently, that's still a thing here) are asking Kiev government to RAISE electricity cost even more, because they lack about 1.5 million of dollars to make the contest possible. Yes, that is literally the reason.
You know... we will survive this winter, still, but I saw zombies in better shape than this country.
Oh, here we go again... that time of the year, I guess.
I hate all of you.
I gotta say, that boss battle felt more like plot development, than a fight, really...
But otherwise - it was a goddamn heartfelt episode, and a good way to finish the season. Time of travels is over, so to speak, it should, once again, be time for action. And yes, that after-credits scene...
Few move AMVs. First one is AMV for RWBY, cause we all love RWBY. And the song is "Heroes" by Generdyn Music ft Zayde Wolf. And it is just damn awesome. I feel, the video grasps the song feeling perfectly. And vise versa, really. And damn good editing.
Another one is for Black Lagoon. Song is "On The Rocks" by Amaranthe. Black Lagoon is your popular anime of choice for any fast-paced song with a lot of drive, so that's what it is, really. Fast song, lots of on-screen shooting. Nothing that we haven't seen before in Black Lagoon AMVs, but it's still pretty damn good.
Finished this one yesterday. This one is an isometric horror game, which is a pretty rare genre itself. And this particular game is created by people who did another isometric horror game Stasis. Sci-fi horror. Actually, Cayne is in the same setting, though, you don't have to know Stasis to play it (I totally forgot how Stasis went already). It is an indie game, and yes, the text on the picture is absolutely true - it's a free game, so you don't have to read me here, you can just go and get the game right now, for no money at all.
Now, the game is pretty short. You won't spend more than 3 hours playing it, really. Though, it does have moments when you just get absolutely stuck, without any idea which item to use with which item next. Though, mostly it all is logical enough, so you don't get too stuck when you are used to the game.
In addition to using items, you find a lot of diaries of the people who worked on the station, and in those, in addition to some very interesting reading, you would find clues to puzzles and some codes to locked doors.
And let me tell you, the people that you read about in those diaries are a horrible bunch of individuals. No, seriously, I got more disgusted by the people who wrote that stuff, than by all the gruesome imagery, and there was plenty of that. It's like some bunch of space retard rednecks got stuck in that place, and them plotting against each other and fucking each other brought the disaster that we got stuck in.
And speaking of. In this game we play as a very confused pregnant woman. She got drunk and accidentally pregnant, went for abortion, and suddenly woke up in this unfamiliar and scary place, being already 9 months pregnant. Not the best condition for survival, but she braves things like a champ. She also reacts to what happens with some humor, when she can, which is a nice defense mechanism I guess. All in all, she is alright character, and I did feel for her during the gameplay.
All in all, the game is damn short, and I gotta say - it's not much of a horror, cause you get almost no jump-scares. Also, the story and the end twist are pretty predictable. But it is very atmospheric, and filled with extremely gruesome imagery and text, so you might enjoy it, if you like that sort of thing. And, again, the game is free, while being good enough to pay money for.
And, as always, if you would be just interested in watching that - here's my playthrough.
