Re: General Metroid chit chat


Trying to watch the Other M movie again.

15:28
She narrates that she asked a question, when it would've been just as easy to have her ask the question in the scene. Any fiction writing class will tell you this is a no-no.

15:48
"The word he so obviously chose, outsider, pierced my heart."

She's the universes' biggest bounty hunting badass, but she's felled by Adam's deliberate word choice. And did he so obviously choose that word? A second ago she was all cool with his matter-of-fact, down-to-business, no-time-for-pleasantries way of speaking.

17:07
"Adam hadn't authorized it, but I decided to remain on-site for the sake of the others."
That's cool and all, but it would've been more cool if he had ordered her to leave and she stayed anyway. Also, he never authorized her remaining, but he never ordered her to leave either. He just walked away wordlessly.

19:12
Adam's granting authorization to all his men to use freeze rays and for Samus to use her missles. So there could be something to be said for even Adam's own men being unable to use life saving equipment until Adam gives the say so.

20:20
Adam requests Samus' help with the requisite that he's, "gonna have to ask that you follow my commands. You don't move unless I say so. You don't shoot unless I say so."
So this is one of the infamous little bits I've seem mentioned regarding Samus' subservience, but I notice that she doesn't accept his terms. She remains silent and then it goes into flashback. This could've been a nice little way for her to get in on the mission and still play by her own rules. She never accepted his terms.

26:50
Okay, well so far Adam doesn't seem like anything other than your standard Hollywood military commander. Nothing against him yet. He seems like a guy doing his job. He shows no real attachment to Samus, leading one to think that any bond there is felt entirely by Samus.
Samus does seem to be far too attached to him. The flashback establishes a weird kind of father/daughter relationship yet she hints at possibly wanting something more. She keeps going on how she was young and naive. Her feeling "confused and exhilarated" at taking orders again is just. . . I don't know. Confused and exhilarated?
So what do we know so far? Samus is the most badass bounty hunter ever and has single-handedly saved the universe a buncha' times.

She's also young, naive, confused, exhilarated, and feels as though her heart has been pierced by Adam. This is how they've chosen to establish her character. Hoo-kay.

29:00
What's with that white fuzzy rabbit thing? Creepy.

33:46
Agghh! Shakey cam! Why is there a shakey cam on a shot of some guy typing on a keyboard? Clearly this is the kind of action-packed scene that requires a shakey cam. :p Not really a complaint, I just found it amusing.

36:50
Samus offering Adam's opinion on experimenting on living creatures. Read it in the essay. Holds up here. But then she goes on to talk about the baby metroid that she handed over to scientists at the end of Metroid 2 and how this was also a major violation of that ideal.
Okay, I don't know my Metroid minutia that well, but when she handed the baby metroid over, I don't recall it ever being said that it was for the purpose of creating bio-weapons.
And in fact, going back to 3:00 into the movie, Samus even says that the research on the baby metroid was going to focus on alternative energy resources and that it was supposed to be a "ray of hope" for the universe. Pretty sure she was under the impression that it wasn't meant for bio-weapons.
So her feeling guilty about aiding in bio-weapon development by handing over the baby is debunked by Samus herself.

37:15
Samus is now worried what Adam thinks of her. But as explained above, she has no reason to feel guilty, nor has he done anything to suggest he's upset with her. If anything, the experiments being conducted by the Galactic Federation make Samus' contribution pale in comparison.

43:00
Okay, so this is the infamous Hell Run where Adam orders Samus to, "Start by searching areas you can access with your current equipment." I must be missing something. A high temperature lava zone does not sound like an area she can access with her current equipment. So why does she go in there? Is this the only place she can explore at this point in the game? Adam does have constant audio and visual feed from Samus' helmet, so why not authorize the varia suit sooner?
Then you get into the issues of autonomy that soldiers have on the battlefield, and I'm again wondering why Samus didn't activate the varia suit herself. Did she really require permission to protect herself with a non-lethal piece of equipment?
Maybe she's just feeling confused and exhilarated again and can't make decisions on her own.

Well I think that's a good place to stop for now.

Bat Slap

An interesting video article on the perceived sexism in Batman Arkham City, which I've never played. More about the gamer community's knee-jerk defensive reaction to serious critiques of the game than a discussion about the game itself. Basically how the gamer community wants to be taken seriously without having to do any of the work to become intellectually mature itself. Thought provoking stuff.
