Just wasted an hour and half watching the movie, 'Afterlife', starring Christina Ricci and Liam Neeson.
What nonsense. You are given evidence throughout that Christina might be dead, and also evidence that she might be alive. And at the end, as is fast becoming the trend in western horror movies, all the good die and the bad guy gets away to do his shit another day....and gets a young boy to be his student as well!
The shows main focus seems to be just increasing the tension within the viewer, not giving the viewer enough evidence to decide either way, and finally ending on as bleak and sick a note as possible. Basically, there isn't really any ending. Evidence is given to make people think either way so that the tension and anxiety can last long after the cinema has closed its doors as people attempt to figure out what really happened.
What the white man seems to be coming up with these days for 'entertainment' brings back memories of those days in Rome where people took great pleasure in watching other people get torn apart by lions or each other in the Colosseum. Looks like these people haven't changed.
IT SEEMS THAT WESTERN MOVIES, or in particular American ones - the British, or rather, the English, seem to be trying to compete with the Americans recently as well with their spate of downright sick movies - are mainly focused on inciting tension, anxiety and emotional reaction. Not much of interesting dialogues, storylines, thought-provocation, or intelligent anything. Just inciting tension. Like i've mentioned before, they are already doing this purposely with camera shakes, zooming in and out, close ups of faces when speaking, flashing lights, strobes, swift camera angle changes, amongst others i might have forgotten to mention. All designed to incite tension in the viewer and what i call, 'the contextualisation of anxiety' so that every scene will be more 'exciting' than it actually would be if they didn't employ all these strategies.
So what if they didn't employ these strategies? Then they would have to spend even more time thinking up intelligent plots and dialogues. Easier to do as they do now so as to get the most profits with little thought isn't it. They must be accessing some psychological studies that indicate that the greater the eye movements, blinks, etc, the greater the reaction, tension, anxiety. And if you pair this with sex, gore, slaughter, torture....even greater reaction. Hence, the application of these strategies in western movies of close to the past couple of decades, and with increasing use in recent years.
'the contextualisation of anxiety' so that every scene will be more 'exciting' than it actually would be.
THERE'S SOMETHING REALLY SICK GOING ON in the western mind. How on earth do people put up with movies where there is so much gore, where the main focus is watching people being tortured and murdered in gruesome ways - the SAW series is absolute Snuff filth, but it is indeed worrying that it is one of the biggest 'blockbusters' out there - being chased and hunted down and slaughtered....after which the bad guy or ghost gets away to ply his/her traits another day with another victim or victims.
And even The Hunger Games, for instance, is simply an effort to prepare teenagers for the 'Gorefest' in later years. The very thought of children and teenagers being made to fight and kill each other is itself sickening. Even though the 'gore' content might be comparatively minimal, the idea itself, even though dressed up in heroism and adventure, is vile. And parents are flocking to cinemas throughout much of the world with their kids in tow for this sort of 'entertainment'.
PICTURE A GUY ASKING HIS FRIENDS, 'Hey, how about a movie tonight?' "Sure! What shall we watch?" 'How about a movie where everyone gets chased around and slaughtered in gruesome ways?' "Great! Let's go for it!"
Now if conversations went that way, even the 'fans' of such dire nonsense would baulk and wonder which mental hospital for the criminally insane vomited out these psychopathic fellas. But no, these white guys call it 'horror', or 'thriller', or 'slasher', not by its rightful name, which would be 'SNUFF'. It seems that the evils we engage in slip our attention because of the words we use, albeit unwittingly, to disguise it. That's how such evil has its way with people. Many a time, we miss the true nature of what we are doing simply because of the words used to disguise it.
And in these post-colonial days of west-worship, we are less likely to question the words used by the west to disguise much of their evil produce - 'embargo' instead of trade sanctions designed to kill children; 'democracy' instead of Bourgeoiscracy; 'Adult' movie, instead of shallow movies with sexual and snuff content; 'capitalism' instead of mass exploitation; 'Like' Buttons, instead of 'don't think, just react, buttons'; 'Death penalty' instead of 'an attempt to kill the victims of our social system'; 'Terrorism', instead of retaliation; 'Cull', instead of Kill; 'Abortion', instead of Infanticide.....and the list goes on.
And these idiots cry foul when some of their kids go around shooting kids in schools. What were you expecting? Well, my advice would be, stop all that bawling, and take the deaths of your children as Tax for your 'entertainment', your violent video games, your foreign policies that leads to death and destruction for others, with their lives.
SO WHY NOT PRODUCE RAPE MOVIES, where lots of women get raped in all kinds of vicious ways and then killed, and the rapists go free. Or how about some pedophile movies please. You could do it 3d style with 3d models so that we can feel that 'we are actually there'. Well, if these people can queue to watch movies where the main focus is gory slaughter and torture without much of a storyline or dialogue, why not the aforementioned right? How is mindless slaughter and torture alright, but not the above? One devalues women, the other devalues children. But what they are producing now devalues ALL of humanity and human life in itself. Isn't that worse? And these idiots cry foul when some of their kids go around shooting kids in schools. What a joke. What were you expecting? Well, my advice would be, stop all that bawling, and take the deaths of your children as Tax for your 'entertainment', your violent video games, your foreign policies that leads to death and destruction for others, with their lives.
I THINK I'M ON THE BRINK OF REALISING that the 'democracy' the west is so proud to have introduced to the world is nothing but a means by which all of the global mass may be corrupted by their elite and corporation. It may be a conspiracy, or it may just be a consequence of the system these people put in place when they hoisted their banners of 'civilisation' over their pirate ships not too long ago as they went around the world creating the world in their image. Their idea and practice of 'democracy' seems to espouse the freedom to be as bad as you can be without causing society to implode. Such a 'freedom' actually binds you to not want more than the base, reflexive, and primitive. That's the paradox of their version of 'freedom' that frees as well as enslaves you to your base potentials, and all the most evil events and persons that occur thereafter become nothing but a more blatant version of what everyone else have become. Nothing short of insidious.

MY IDEA OF FREEDOM is that which inspires us to be as good, intelligent, thoughtful, creative, spiritual, as we can be so that society can advance with the best input of our collective imagination, not the worst. What the white man seems to be coming up with these days for 'entertainment' brings back memories of those days in Rome where people took great pleasure in watching other people get torn apart by lions or each other in the Colosseum. Looks like these people haven't changed.
It's time we take another look at our own cultures and religions, extract the best elements of it, and see what kind of democracy we can come up with. 'Democracy' in the hands of the west just seems to bring out the worst in all of us whilst restrained by nothing other than the long leash of the law.
I'm beginning to think there is some truth in the term, 'white devil'.
