An Interesting Alien Film



Just saw this intriguing sci-fi flick starring Scarlett Johansson as an alien that feeds on men with strong, thick Scottish accents. It's an artsy movie is both beautiful and stomach-churning and features a haunting soundtrack that matches the (v dark) mood of the film. What I like most about Under the Skin, which tells a rather simple story and has very few dialogues, is that it looks at us/humanity through the eyes of an outsider. It evokes reactions (I immediately felt bad eating meat, of instance) and I thought humans are such easy preys since most of us are pretty stupid, right? I mean, look at those horny men being lured into the alien's den ... Interestingly, the film (and the alien) then decides to take pity on us, most ordinary people just wanna get on with our lives, before things turn nasty in the end. Looking at the state of the world today, with so many countries in conflict, what will eventually bring the end to it won't be any meteor or alien invasion but ourselves...

Another Pervy (?) Japanese PS Vita Game...

Honestly. 

What's it with these Japanese video game developers? First it was that hidden "shower scene" in The 3rd Birthday. Then came "sexy time" in Valhalla Knights 3 when players have to "pleasure" the nightclub hostesses (i.e. "rubbing" various "hot spots" on the PS Vita screen) in order to have them join their team. Now, Monster Monpiece truly takes abusing your Vita to a new height:

Only the Japanese...
I like the way reviewers (mostly outside of Japan) boil this sort of gameplay down to "cultural differences" but what this really is is ... I dunno, Japanese gamers are quite pervy. But that is the thing, they also seem to like the sort of genre that I like (yes, what does THAT say about ME)!! So yes, I've downloaded MM mainly because this is one of the very, very few card battle games available on the Vita market and now I will have to "play" this, like, in the loo or something ... cos I CANNOT imagine me doing this to my Vita in public ... I mean, pleasuring the hostesses during my work commute was bad enough ...
