Nerve

Nerve is a teen techno-thriller from the directors of Paranormal Activity 3 and 4, which I didn’t even realise had directors. 

Based on Jeanne Ryan’s novel, the film revolves around an app called ‘Nerve’, a social media game in which ‘Watchers’ challenge ‘Players’ to complete dares for money. 304 more words

Reviews

I still stand by the System Shock 2 comparison, as it did have two organic firearms made from human and alien tech, one of which is referred to as “semi-sentient” (though for the life of me I can’t find a decent picture of either one).  131 more words

eXistenZ - Odd

I have never really seen such creepy acting until I watched this movie. Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character in particular, there is something about her that just screams creppy, maybe it was when she was fingering Jude Laws’ bioport, or perhaps it was her random facial gestures and bad dialogue. 364 more words

eXistenZ

Just a reminder that you should watch eXistenZ at some point this week. I’d like to discuss the film during our last week of class. The film is available to rent and stream from Amazon starting at $3.99. 128 more words

Could We Be A Never Ending VR Creation?

I’ve come across the theory before. Perhaps we are all unreal in the most real sense. Could we be a never ending game? Is life as we know it actually not actually life at all? 463 more words

eXistenZ (1999)

Taking up where Videodrome left off, David Cronenberg once more tackles the subject of the human condition and our relationship with the media.

The main problem with eXistenZ is that the plot is so divorced from reality that it has no logical progression; instead it’s just a series of events that have no narrative cohesion at all, which destroys any drama or suspense it may have had. 102 more words
