What did we did we do this week? Just notes, I think.
I'll admit that I was on my own for most of it. (Maybe not a good idea) I added commentary to my creative Science Fiction notes. The amount of words is definitely over 750, but I am somewhat unsure as to whether it counts.
I read Johnny Mnemonic on my own. The site it was on, I believe, had some errors that affected the literacy. Misspellings, weird sentences. It was a good story though. The main character Johnny had cybernetic surgery so he's now a human hard drive, and he gets tangled up with the Yakuza, a Japanese gang (similar to the Mafia) that practically owns the world. That's the simple way to put it. There are a lot of weird details within.
Today, our group is going to make our Prezi. I'm not sure how it's going to work exactly, but I'll just roll with it.
Last night, I watched the trailer for Escape From New York.
It is 1997. (This was made in 1981, so...) The entire city of New York, including Manhattan Island, has become a walled maximum security prison. The president's plane crashes inside and the government sends in Snake Plissken, master criminal and bonafide buttkicker, to get him out.
This is the film that inspired Metal Gear, and it looks awesome. I want to watch it. Where can I find it?
Johnny Mnemonic was adapted into a movie as well. Two dystopian movie trailers coming right up!
Escape is first, followed by Johnny. Both films are 'R' rated, so we obviously wouldn't be able to watch them in class.
