Career choices

Well its that time in a persons life on what he or she wants to do with their life and I've been thinking what career I'm gonna do for basically the rest of my life.

Atm I've been thinking of going to the Boulder Colorado Police Academy and hopefully within the next 3-4 years be a full fledge Police officer (wishing to be a Broomfield Police officer).But at last the hard part is some Police departments require different requirements like

20/20 vision

a # amount of push ups in a min

some require a bachelors degree depending on what field I want to work on

Good health (something I kinda lack)

some require a former experience of some type of law enforcement (being a security guard counts)

So as you can see its gonna be very tough to do this so hopefully I can get through without to much hassle which I got to get healthier,workout alot so I can get back into shape which is gonna be the hard part,so wish me luck :D

Well as a fan of movies and TV shows it's time for blockbuster movies and above avg movies to hit theaters.

Below are some movies I've seen in the last two months and I will try to give the basic "Good" and the "Bad" about each movie so BE WARNED, DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVENT SEEN THESE MOVIES AND ARE AFRAID OF SPOILERS athough if I do come across something that may contain a spoiler I will give a forwarning before hand.

:Note: I will not list one or two bad things about a Film if it has more Good than Bad,so expect nothing negative in a movie rating if I only see one or two flaws in the movie

 

Hotfuzz rated pg-13: Comedy/Horror/Action

As most people loved the hilarious movie Shaun Of The Dead movie which is a spin off comedy of a british version of Dawn of the Dead.The cast from Shaun Of The Dead are back (besides the female lead actoress from SotD) and give a better performance than they did in SotD.Hotfuzz it's self is about a police officer who is a roughneck/hardcore officer on the streets of a awfull destrict in Europe,while years past and his superior officers question his motives they send him to a country side town in which barely no crime has taken place for years.In which as the young officer gets use to his surrondings bizzare murders take place which the townsfolk just ignore while the officer and his partner try to solve the murders and try to convince the townsfolk that thier lives are in danger.

Out of 10 I give this movie a solid 8,the actors are amazingly funny if you saw SotD (you dont have to watch it before Hotfuzz) and did amazingly in the laughs department and after the end I wanted more to laugh at since its been ages since I've seen a good comedy film that didnt have rednecks trying to tell jokes.

 

Spider-man 3 rated pg-13: Action/Romance

As a Marvel fanboy I had to see this and the first two films where amazing done by the actors and directors bringing spidey to the big screen with cameos of Bruce Cambel sp? and Stan Lee it made me scream like a girl inside.In spider-man 3 the fight scenes where amazing and prolly the best fight scenes out of the 3 films,athough the hardest part I have to say is keeping the same cast through the 3 films which is a lovely touch (Kirsten Dunst is an awesome MJ athough I think Ali Larter would be a better one) while Tobey still gets the lead role as Spidey.Lots of Marvel/Spider-man cameos in this film which I just orged over with Eddie Brock Jr,Gwen Stacy Acted by the lovely Bryce Dallas Howard,Sandman,Dr.Curt Connors,Venom aka Eddie Brock and Harry Osborn where all in one film.Athough all goodthings come to an end which spider-man 3 has alot of,the acting from the cast went down a hole lot since the first two films and that counts for Kirsten Dunst and Tobey while the only actor who did improve was J.K Simmons who just amazed me on how well he acted as J.Jonah Jameson.The love scenes sucked so bad and actually almost made me want to leave the theater while the only thing that kept me in my seat was I had to finish the film.

:SPOILERS!:

Ok now the scene why most people went to go see this Film and it's Spidey vs Venom which topher grace did a horrible job acting as a villian and just not a normal villian one of spideys worst/Eviliest villians (note not the worst just the top 3) and How the directors made Venom's apparence was just awefull it made me gag constantly (the directors also did not put in Venoms catch phrase "We are Venom" which made me sad).Which sadly what killed this movie after the 2 hours of BS acting the final fight scene which is the last 20 min is when Venom makes his first Movie role,which is bull crap after waiting 2 hours I finally got to see Venom which was a waste of time for the other 2 hours I had to sit and watch Tobey be Emo for half the film while watcing in disgust while people say "Black suit" spidey when its Symbiote Spidey.

:End SPOILERS:

 

Out of 10 I give this movie a 6, the only thing that Spider-man 3 imrpoved out of the first 2 was fight scenes and the cameos.The directing and acting went down so bad I recomend buying or renting Spider-man 3 when it comes out on DvD and not waste the 9 bucks sitting down and trying to keep quiet at watching garbage which btw this is coming from a Marvel and Spider-man fan for the past 14 years.

 

Pirates 3 rated pg-13: Comedy/Action/Romance

The Final piece of the trilogy makes to the big screen and I was amazed on the acting and directing possibley the best fight scenes I've ever scene.While pirates has a pg-13 rating its more of a darker rating possibley a R rating with alot of bloody scenes which I dont recomend for anyone under 16.Athough I was never a fan of Orlando Bloom he did a decent job in Pirates 3 which his character becomes darker and Orlando did a well done job going from nice-dark-nice and so on.Expect alot of twist and turns in the story (after credits theres a 30 sec scene just like the other two films) and Geoffrey Rush's role was amazing on how well he acted,but hey us guys just wanted to see Keira Knightley in which she looks outstounding in the well done costums and her acting just got a hole lot better and shes maturing very well as a young actress (shes one year younger than me hmmm, GIGGITY).Athough the one person who I thought who had a smaller role but did an awesome job was Jack Davenport who did an aweosme job in Pirates 2 and greatly improved in Pirates 3 in which he has a lesser screen time but did well for that amount of time.

Out of 10 I give this movie a 8.5,everyones acting improved through out the 3 films and the characters matured with the acting which is very hard for a Trilogy and well worth the 9 bucks seeing it on the big screen.

 

28 Weeks Later Rated R: Horror/Action

 

As a fan of zombie films this was a very nice film even for mostly being European casting which they did a great jpb trying to impress the western audieance (outside of the Virus and the area of the destruction of the first film theres nothing tieing from the first film,so you can skip seeing the first film) Rose Byrne which you might know her from Troy had a nice role in 28 weeks later.While not only did 28 weeks later did a good job in the horror department it had a nice taste of action and twist in turns to throw off the people who thinks the story goes from A to B but actually does a good job on twists to say oh bet you didnt think that would happen but it did,then the story goes on and Another! twist which doesnt sperate the on going story which simply amazed me.

Out of 10 I give this movie a 7.5,the nice twist and turns in the story which is very hard for a diretor to do and not ruin the movie just kept the movie going and not destroying the storyline in which sometimes in 28 weeks later I did scream (to myself) why the hell did they Cut out that character,they where freaking awesome!.

Greatest Movies of 2006

Just like to share my thoughts of some of the best movies that came out this year. Casino Royal will be the first, for a "reboot" of the series this movie actually did pretty good not just for a new actor playing Jame Bond but to keep the Franchise alive with new gadgets,villains and sexier Bond girls and starting off with Eva Green I couldnt ask for anything more :D. Secoundly The newiest DC movie Superman Returns was just amazing and i wanted more after the two hours and forty minutes of seeing my favorite superhero do what other superheros wish they can do and i might add Brandon Routh did an excellent job playing Sups while Kate Bosworth did a fantastic job playing Lois. Is the best for last or not? The Departed did an awesome job of twist and turns involving the Irish mob lead by Jack Nickalson and the NYC police and FBI, expect a wide arange of actress's and actor's in this movie and look out Sopranos cause Departed is here.
