The internet, in general, often regard themselves as a somewhat “enlightened elite”. A gathering of individual minds in a place where freedom of thought and speech reign true, and where fact, above all else, is available and valued.
God and religion is shunned, perceived as a bygone aspect that is no longer required. With many of the internet community being aligned gamers, have the enlightened hoards found themselves innately drawn to the philosophies and foundations of humanity’s most popular Creationist theory?
Lara Croft was once seen as an icon, a fine example of strong female characters in gaming. As time’s gone on however, she’s fallen out of favour with the public and her fans.
Often reviled for her large breasts within the gaming community, are we judging Lara solely based on the very stigmas she ventured to escape in her debut instalment?
Taxi Driver is long regarded as a masterpiece from legendary auteur Martin Scorsese. The story of Travis Bickle; a returned war-vet who spirals into obsession and violence. Many analyse the film solely on the scientific - the mental decline and psychological damage of Bickle, possibly from his stint in the Marines. Having watched Taxi Driver for the first time several weeks ago, my interpretation was very different. I saw Taxi Driver as an exercise of destiny and time-loop theory. Taxi Driver as possibly one of the great time-travel sci-fi films of an age.
To establish this theory we first must observe that there are three time-lines playing out simultaneously. A past, present and future.
