For reasons I may never truly understand, ParticleShock Actual decided my life wouldn’t be complete without witnessing the cinematic masterpiece that is “Tusk”. Unfortunately for me though, he was completely right. As many movies as I’ve seen, (more than I care to admit), I will most likely never see another movie quite as… groundbreaking? No […]
For as long as American film makers have been trying to make Godzilla movies, I have maintained that Godzilla should be left to TOHO Japan. Well … I just saw the trailer for TOHO’s “Godzilla Resurgence” and it looks gross … in a bad way. I feel like somebody at TOHO watched too much “Attack On Titan”. Very poor. could do better.
I’m listening to coverage of the Tour De France in the background. I don’t know why, That’s just what was on the television when I turned it on. I wasn’t actually paying attention but I heard one of the commentators mention “doping”. That caught my attention because John Oliver recently talked about doping and performance […]
I was pretty excited to learn that SyFy has ordered a second season of The Expanse, a series that, in its first season, served up a winning recipe of interplanetary intrigue with overtones of oppression and conspiracy.

I’ve often thought that, to a certain extent, Person of Interest negated any need for a television series based on the game Watch Dogs.
10 Cloverfield isn’t so much a sequel as it is a “set in the same universe” follow-up to the original. Honestly this feels like an entirely unrelated film that didn’t really have an ending so they just added some aliens and tacked the word cloverfield to the title. The trailers for this movie didn’t inspire me to run the the theater so …better late than never? maybe?
Another year has gone by in what feels like only a matter of weeks. This marks the sixth anniversary of PARTICLESHOCK.com and regretfully I haven’t made much progress blogging on a regular basis. It feels like I make the same promise to myself every year, that I will create and publish new content on a regular basis. Maybe this will be the year I finally make good on that promise.
Knights of Sidonia follows the last remnants of humanity struggling to survive aboard a “seed ship”, seeking a new world to inhabit after the destruction of Earth by a grotesque alien species called gauna.
