Been awhile huh? I guess that’s because I’ve really not had much to say. I’m not really doing anything except sitting at home and waiting for the end of the month. Why the end of the month? That’s when I will be back in the parents house.
Do I want to move back? I think that has a resounding yes…and no.
I’ve never been so miserable as when I’ve lived here in this apt. Even then few times I’ve been at the rents house for the night I’ve been much happier. I don’t know if it is because that is “home” or just because I actually feel welcome. I guess what goes along with that is that the roomie and I haven’t exactly been on good terms lately. In fact, last week I think we spoke maybe a sentence to one another. Plus, moving in with the parents again will mean that all of my money that comes in with the new job will not be going anywhere. I can save it and hopefully get my own house by this time next year. Is that a big stretch? A leap? Yes…but I think a little one bedroom house would be awesome (and yes, they have those here). As well I will be able to likely finish my tattoo, have money for my trip, and probably get my other tattoo started.
My no’s are odd. I’ll be back home which means my parents will be nagging me about what to do again. I’m going to be turning 28 in two months and will still be with my parents. On second thought, living at home won’t be that bad. They never really regulated my comings and goings. I’ve only had one girl at my apartment. I can’t count the number for my parents house. Yeah…it’s not going to be bad at all. Plus, I’ll have cable again…woohoo!
So why am I waiting? I’m waiting to find another job until I’m back with them so I won’t have so much other shit on my plate when I find another one. I want to be completely focused on the job and nothing else. So what have I been doing? Well, not reading for the Cannonball Read is what I’ve been doing. Most of my time has been stalking ashes and harassing the shit out of her every time she’s on facespace. That, and watching movies. No…really.
Movies Still Rot Your Brain
--I think it was Dr. Pisaster over on facespace that said it was Equilibrium for vampires. I didn’t really catch that. In fact…I didn’t really understand the movie. Was it pretty in that gothic way? Yes. Did it have good gore? Yes. Anything else? Not really…the cure was really retarded.
--*zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz* Oh I’m sorry what? Huh? Ummmm. Matt Damon got ripped. Morgan Freeman is awesome (as always). That’s about all I got.
The Book of Eli
--I really liked it. Not…I fell in love with and have seen it four times liked it. But I liked it none the less. I will say that I disagree with the review over on Pajiba. I didn’t feel that it was preachy at all. And the ending? Good luck guessing that one.
The Lovely Bones
--So ashes watched this one last night and she says it it no way compares to the book. I…have not read the book. I…thought it was ok. I liked it visually. It reminded me a lot of the look and feel of What Dreams May Come although more washed out…especially in the “now.” Also…that ending…fuck that ending. All the way up to the safe. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you watch the movie. Fuck the whole thing from the safe on. Stupid.
--Really, really upset me. I was expecting the book. Instead I got a film that could, in no way, compare itself to the book. It was no where near as bleak, or grim, or just plain fucking depressing. Some people have commented on the interesting/cool cameo of Duvall. Yes, it was cool. However, if you’ve read the book he just wasn’t…well…fucking insane enough for the character he was portraying. I mean, the guy in the book says he eats whatever he has to to survive. Whatever he has to. Let that sink in a little while. Plus, no baby eating. That part of the book is forever stuck in my head.
Up in the Air
--Straight up depressed the ever living fuck outta me. Damn’t. Was it a good movie? Yes…but fuck it…fuck it up it’s depressing ass. Bitch.
--Would be good if it finished. Either tell the Tobey story…or tell the Jake-Natalie story. If you want to tell both then tell both but actually flesh out both stories and make them mean something. If you only want to tell one story then only tell that story. That was the reason Brothers failed for me. You get invested in the three main characters and nothing is resolved for any of them.
--Fun. It’s a fun popcorn movie. Doesn’t really tell a great story. Think of it as Death Race only mix it with Call of Duty. Throw in a little real life SIMS and that’s pretty much the movie. It’s fast though, not quite Crank fast, but fast nonetheless. When it does drag it doesn’t drag for long. Like I said…a good popcorn movie.
Ghosts of Girlfriends Past
--Yeah…don’t ask me why I watched it. I’m saying it was for Stone. Otherwise, I really don’t know why. But it was kind of terrible. Although I wonder if the shirtless wonder MM is really just telling us a story of his own life.
Law Abiding Citizen
--FUN! That’s all I can really say about it. The ending was a bit of a pisser but other then that it’s a pretty fun movie.
--Would have to be the dumbest fucking movie I’ve ever seen in my life, and that says something. No really, its that dumb. An example “horsecock.mpg” doesn’t even have a cock. Yeah…the black rapper in the film doesn’t even have any sex organs…no really. Ummm another? Ohh yeah, dude goes into a coma for 4 years right before he is supposed to lose his virginity (which, btw the girl wanted to do and he didn’t). How does he wake up? His best friend hits him in the face with a baseball bat. What happens? Well lets just say when he overexerts himself he has explosive shits. So what do you think happens when he finally loses his virginity to his now Playmate girlfriend? Yeah…stupid.
Observe and Report
--Dull. Really, it was just dull. Even the date rape scene that got shit was…dull. Poor Ray Liotta. It’s about a loser…who is a fucking loser…but thinks he’s the king of the world. It makes no sense…and now I wonder after Paul Blart if I shouldn’t just punch every mall security guy right in the fucking face when I see him. Of course…I would have to go to the mall. Which I haven’t been to but…ohh…3 times in the last 6 years.
Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins' Ball
--Just as retarded as the original! What’s that you say? It’s a sequel but really a prequel? WOW. Ok…it does have Vinnie Jones and Tommy Flanagan as bad guys. That’s all I really have to say. What’s that? A girl walks in a nun’s costume, strips down to her lingerie in front of a priest and right before performing oral sex on him kisses him and kills him? Well…if I didn’t just sprout a…
--Poor, poor Bruce. This was pretty much shit. Yeah…that’s all I got. Don’t know the plot. Think of it like Avatar except without an alien planet, or aliens, or even less of a plot. Humans don’t interact anymore. They do so with robot human replicas of themselves. Like the avatar interface. Well…someone starts killing them. Bruce Willis, a detective, goes all human like after then guy. What happens in the end…*sigh*…like you didn’t see that coming.
--Not as bad as I thought it was going to be nor as bad as I’ve heard it is. Again, disagree with Pajiba. I didn’t find it to be that boring or slow. In fact, I thought it was a good who-done-it. Which, if you’ve watched those types of movies they tend to stick to the more detective aspect. So, when something new pops up for the detective they slow the pace down to let you try and understand it as well. There were some decent action scenes. Plus, they only waited 8 minutes to get Kate Beckinsale in her underwear…in Antarctica.
The Invention of Lying
--The film was actually really, really promising up until about halfway through the movie…then the gimmick got old and it pretty much just became retarded. I can understand the whole not being able to lie thing but to just be plain brutally honest? Unless someone asks you a direct question there is no need to just tell them everything that pops into your fucking head. Like…for instance…telling Gervais that he’s fat with a pug nose. Why? If someone says, what do you see when you see me? Do you really have to say that? Can you not say I don’t find you attractive? The world was full of assholes. I would kill everyone. Or…the fact that everyone who is not “pretty” is automatically deemed a loser. I’m still trying to figure that one out. Plus…even in a society like this they kind of went a Gattaca route. Like everyone wants someone with good DNA. Have they never heard of people just simply being attracted to another type? However, there is a cameo by Edward Norton as a cocaine addicted cop that is…well…priceless.
--No matter how bad I wanted it to be Event Horizon, it wasn‘t. It was close…but no cigar. I guess it just wasn’t scary enough. It had its moments where it tried but there is a big difference between trying and doing. Plus, I felt the ending was too…happy. Not to mention the timeline of the film. I really couldn’t grasp the timeline. It didn’t make any sense. The suspense wasn’t really up to par either. I felt no sense of urgency. It was a good try though…and no matter what it will likely end up in my collection one day.
I’m having trouble sleeping. I tend to not fall asleep until around 6am…then I don’t wake up until around 3 or 4pm. I don’t know why. I also have no energy. I don’t want to do anything. I know a lot of this is coming from depression. You would think I’d be used to this shit by now.
