Inspiration for a kid

Posted : 9 years, 1 month ago on 23 April 2009 11:02 (A review of Contact (1997))

This review is pure sentimentalism, so if you're not into that, skip it.

I watched this movie as a kid, around 10 years old, and I got instantly sucked into t he world of stars, planets and space - and exploring it. I was already a dinosaur geek (thanks to Jurassic Park), and this was a somewhat natural next step. The following years as I grew into a teenager this film carried with me, inspired me to loo for knowledge, study maths (which in I always sucked, by the way) and be generally interested in science. I love this movie, because it gave me a huge push towards the way I am now - still fascinated by science and nature, outer space and stars, and learning for more.

Funny and provocative - for a while

Posted : 9 years, 1 month ago on 23 April 2009 10:17 (A review of House M.D.)

House is a blast. He's mean, he's direct, he doesn't seem to like anyone nor does he have to. He's a genious who solves EVERY case you could possibly throw at him - you know each and every time that this guy scores it. Not his collegues, but him. It's always him.

This routine covers every episode of the show. No, serisouly, it does. From the beginning right to the end credits, you know how exactly all of this is going to play out - some weird disease, some funny dialogs between characters, some weird patient of House's, more of that weird disease, "What IS this, what COULD it be? Let's do tests" and in the end when the patient is having a bunch of near death experiences, House gets in the way with some nifty solution he discovered while picking his toe hair from his coffee. Patient saved, end credits follow.

It gets pretty old after a few episodes. Can't believe they've made so many seasons of this same weird-funny-mean-deep-inside-warm-old-genious -stuff.

For the while it lasts, it's all good.
