Talera vs Splice

Posted 29th October 2011 at 05:53 PM by Talera

While I was intrigued by the trailer for this film when it was released in cinemas, I figured it was one of those films that could wait until it was on weekly status at the local DVD store. How right I was.

This movie is marketed as a horror/thriller. Realistically, it is a drama for the first 90% of the film, then thriller, scratch that - attempted thriller, for ten or so minutes, then a plot hook for potential sequels. Yes the whole genetic enginerering often goes into a sci-fi category, but they focus less on that and more on the concept of this creature 'developing' and how the social relationships form and change between the parties.

Unfortunately the movie is also entirely predictable, obvious scripting. While the actors make the best of their role, they are let down by these other two factors.

I haven't written much about this film because ultimately I don't have much to say. I may consider watching any sequels, which no doubt there will be, but only on weekly status. I don't think I'll watch the original one again though. While I can see why some people may like it given the moral concepts of science playing with genetics, it was not explored well enough to bring these issues to the forefront of the movie.

    New maps for WCS S2 KR RO32 are replaced26

    The OGN has announced that the maps for the WCS 2013 Season 2 KR OSL Ro32 held on June 18 have been changed.

    Gwangalli Beach and Anaconda were planned to be used in Match 1 and 2 of RO32, but now they are replaced by Bel'Shir Vestige. Additionally, the map for Losersí match and Winnersí match is Newkirk Redevelopment Precinct (SPL map, not Newkirk Precinct). Whirlwind is the map for the last round.

    These changes are made because of the worries from fans and other insiders. After OGN announced the format and maps for the new OSL, members in many forums complained that it was too hasty to use the two new maps because it wasnít decided if they were balanced. In addition, the Ro32 format is Dual Tournament, thus using new maps in Match 1 and 2 is improper.
