Reality TV - Survivor 4 - Season Premiere

1 If you're like me, you did a little dance of joy when that familiar Survivor music began at 8pm. Survivor's fourth season on CBS is being held on the tropical island of Marquesas - near Tahiti. Marquesas has a history of cannibalism (that's humans eating humans - yuck!) and other mucho spooky stuff.

1
Rotu Tribe: Gabriel, John, Kathy, Neleh, Zoe, Tammy, Robert, Paschal.
Maraamu Tribe: Gina, Hunter, Patricia, Rob, Sara, Peter, Sean, Vecepia.

1 The tribe has to jump off a shipping boat and paddle two miles to shore in an inflatable raft. This time they don't get any rations to start - no food, no water - nuttin'. But they do get some survival gear, like a magnifying glass and a map to a decent watering hole. (No elephant dung this time!)

1Immunity Challenge: The two teams have to carry a 300 lbs canoe through the ocean to a fire cauldron where they have to light two torches. On their way back to the beach, they have to light several torches along the way. Once back on land they have to race with the canoe along the rocky beach and light another fire cauldron. The first one to finish successfully wins immunity. Rotu kicks Maraamu's butt.

High Points:

  • Sarah from the Maraamu tribe riding their raft like she was Cleopatra - get over yourself, girlfriend.
  • Maraamu booting Peter. There is no one who deserved to be the first Survivor voted off more than this dude. Peter Harkey seems to think he's Yoda or something. If you look up "flake" in the dictionary, you'll see this dude's pic.

    1

    Low Points:

  • Peter rambling on about all the holes in people's bodies? What was up with that?
  • The poor Maraamu tribe has more trouble carrying their torches than they do carrying the 300 lbs canoe during the Immunity Challenge. They keep dropping the lit torches into the ocean.
  • Kathy's little crying fit when no one at Rotu wants to build a fire does not make her any friends.

    Survivor Saying of the Week:

    "Sarah has a very cute body and paid a lot for it, and if you have it, of course flaunt it." - Vecepia Towery, Maraamu. (Meow!)

    Early Thoughts: Who'll Win Survivor 4?

    • Give me another couple of episodes to decide.
    • Hunter cuz everybody seems to like him and he's an asset to his tribe.
    • Kathy cuz she's mom-like and no one votes their mom off.
    • Zoe cuz she's a tough chick. She'll win challenges and stuff.

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
