what happened this year?..
google ‘zeitgeist 2013’
i found this year’s google zeitgeist rather disappointing. the events they chose to cover, it’s length and the overall feel of the video. as far as nasa goes, what’s more exciting than a satellite to observe our planets more closely is a manmade object leaving the solar system for the first time. and other elements of course. i really loved the 3d looking photos and quality of the segment.
i’m sure you guys are inundated with 2013 recaps so i wont bore you with one of those. i could do one for sci – fi only, and i will for movies, in case you missed one that you should really must see, but more importantly, new year’s is not just about trying to find someone to kiss at 12:00 (can’t help you there, unless you find me on foursquare-the original stalker app), or pledging a resolution you only plan on keeping for 2 weeks, but about looking forward to the new year. and by ‘looking forward to the new year,’ i mean, looking forward to the crazy-awesome sci fi movies to be released in the new year of two thousand and fourteen. i bet i totally freaked you guys out by spelling out the year. for those of you whom did not recognize those strange words in the previous sentence, i had meant, 2014.
really sorry about getting your hopes up, but you’ll have to wait for a future post of these movies; there are a lot and each one deserves a fair account and a justified reason to see it, instead of just a random list, based on WikiP-influence (that’s a word i just made up, patent pending, ©, ™, ‘don’t steal my sh*t’ ) you might read on other blogs. don’t worry, they’re coming in the next few days. oh wait-new year’s is tomorrow! ok, wait a day or maybe two, i’ll be back my young padwans, i’ll be back (and yes, i was hinting at the upcoming ‘Robopocalypse,’ 2014 sci-fi movie, based on a hit novel, with similar themes to ‘Terminator’ and ‘iRobot.’).
ok, ok, stop complaining,
here’s a brief list of cool sci-fi movies from 2013:
GRAVITY (best sci-fi movie i’ve ever seen)
Star Trek : Into Darkness (Wrath of Kahn remake)
World War Z
Man of Steel
The Hobbit, part2: Desolation of Smaug
Thor : the Dark World
the Hunger Games : Catching Fire
