24 – “Day 8: 4:00 A.M. – 5:00 A.M.”

For the second episode in a row, 24 has cranked up the action and intrigue, weaving a portrait of cliffhangers, twists, moles, gunfights, Jack being badass, Chloe doing her best Jack impression and some pretty lame dialogue. The final result was fun, although it’s difficult to decipher how exactly the writers of the show are going to explain their latest twist, involving Dana Walsh as a terrorist attempting to destroy her own country. I was glad to see 24 back to its typical adrenaline-laced ways, although sometimes, 24 is notorious for sacrificing plausibility for thrills and twists. Then again, 24 is rarely a realistic show, so maybe I’m being a little harsh.. Either way, the last two weeks have been a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the season.

A large portion of the episode was focused on Chloe attempting to get CTU up and running again, and to be honest, it’s about time we got some scenes with Chloe. I’ve mentioned it several times before, and I will mention it one more time right now: Chloe has been a key figure in 24 since Season 3, so it seems a shame to waste her talents on simply standing around and taking orders from a new and completely uninteresting character like Dana Walsh. As soon as I saw Chloe pull the gun on the NSA agent, I was cheering. Literally cheering, as in standing up on my chair and thanking God that they finally gave Chloe some scenes we all could sink our teeth into. As usual, CTU is quickly up and running, proving that the time constraints of an episode never holds CTU back from always winning.

Is 3-D really the future?

2009 saw the start of a so-called revolution in cinema technology: 3-D. Cinemas installed new projectors allowing 3-D films to be shown on a mass scale, not just on IMAX screens. A wide range of films were released in this new format, from My Bloody Valentine to Coraline, The Final Destination to Up, all leading toward the release of Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all time. Hollywood is putting a lot of effort into making 3-D a success, with Alice in Wonderland already making a lot of money, and many future releases lined up to have the 3D treatment. But is 3-D really the future of cinema?
