WRITTEN BY RYAN FU @FU_BEATZ

Scarlett Johansson stars in Lucy, an action-thriller that tracks a woman that gets accidentally caught in a dark deal, who turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic. I actually saw this film last weekend but I just finally had the time to write a review on it, but basically I thought it was an enjoyable film with good performances by Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman but some of it seemed pretty unrealistic, but what do you expect from watching a science fiction movie. It did have great philosophical ideas like what if you had the power to know everything? Would you try to know everything or would you be too scared of it? 

BRAIN: THE COMPLETE MIND: HOW IT DEVELOPS, HOW IT WORKS, AND HOW TO KEEP IT SHARP

After Scarlett becomes a drug mule for the mob, she winds up with superpowers after an experimental drug called CPH4 overloads her brain. She begins to start using more and more of brain, gaining more knowledge and superhuman capabilities. Since, basically she is one of her kind, she needs the help of Morgan Freeman because he is the best known for his brain research. Scarlett tells him that she gained the ability to access more parts of her brain but she fears that she has a limited time on her hands, so she needs guidance from him on what to do? Morgan honestly tells her that she should try to learn everything she can and pass it on to the next generation because Morgan believes that is the greatest gift that humans can give to one another, which I totally agree with because as I always say, “Knowledge is Power.”

She gets more of the experimental drug and takes it all at once like some college sorority chick after finals. She begins to transform and extract vast information like a super computer. As she gets closer to 100% brain capacity she begins to travel through time and space, moving into the past and the future, stopping and reversing as she wishes. When she hits her peak, she vaporizes into thin air leaving only her clothes and a reminder of what she learned on a USB storage stick to give to Morgan Freeman. 

MONTY PYTHON’S THE MEANING OF LIFE – 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (BLU-RAY + DIGITAL COPY + ULTRAVIOLET)

Once again, I totally enjoyed the movie, which I thought Scarlett and Morgan did a terrific job but some of it seemed pretty unrealistic but what do you expect when you’re talking about something nobody has ever really experienced before. Which lead me to this question? What if you did have the power to know everything? What would you do with it? Also, the movie brought up interesting questions about the human race as such as what we’ve done the last 2 billion years. We’ve accomplished a lot but are we not realizing our full potential? We still act like animals, fighting among ourselves for meaningless things. It just makes you think, what are you here for in life? Are you just here just to go to school, get a job, get married have children, pay a mortgage then die? Or are you here on Earth in this Universe to do something more in your life? These are the questions you have to ask yourself or just bask in the glory of ignorance and just enjoy the ride.

Forget Me Not – Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!!!

Dr-Seuss

Theodor Seuss Geisel (March 2, 1904 – September 24, 1991) was an American writer and cartoonist. He was most widely known for his children’s books, which he wrote and illustrated under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss.

He was a perfectionist in his work and would sometimes spend up to a year on a book. It was not uncommon for him to throw out 95% of his material until he settled on a theme for his book. For a writer he was unusual in that he preferred to be paid only after he finished his work rather than in advance.

Geisel published 46 children’s books, often characterized by imaginative characters, rhyme, and frequent use of anapestic meter. His most-celebrated books include the bestselling Green Eggs and Ham, The Cat in the Hat, The Lorax, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, Fox in Socks, The King’s Stilts, Hop on Pop, Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose, Horton Hatches the Egg, Horton Hears a Who!, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas!. His works have spawned numerous adaptations, including 11 television specials, four feature films, a Broadway musical and four television series.

“LIVE LONG AND PROSPER”

The Vulcan greeting and the finger-separating hand gesture that accompanies it first appeared in the second season of Star Trek: The Original Series, during an episode titled “Amok Time.” Spock himself (actor Leonard Nimoy) has made no secret of the fact that the gesture and phrase were his idea, and that he based them on Orthodox Jewish blessings he remembered from his childhood. In the Jewish blessing, the position of the fingers forms the Hebrew letter “Shin,” which represents the name “Shaddai” (Almighty God). Nimoy put his own spin on the traditional gesture by holding up just one hand (instead of both) and changing
