Three Movies I saw Over The Past Few Days

by on

I just watched three movies I've never seen before. They were The Wrestler, Little Miss Sunshine and Elephant. I'll start with Elephant, a friend told me that this was a great movie and used it to back himself up when I said Van Sant was a terrible director/writter and he claimed he was good. He told me the film was about a high school shoot-out and for some reason my interest was caught and I was forced to watching the film that night. Terrible movie Gus Van Sant you suck, although Good Will Hunting was OK and I have not yet watched Milk which could end up being good. Honestly though, this movie was so pointless, pretty much everything they show us in the first 1:15 minutes POINTLESS we don't need to know, nothing to do with the story. Terrible ending. And worst of all I found they set it up to make it look like video games were responsible, maybe they can influence some of the things we do but just can't see it happening, and I dont like them pointing fingers.

Darren Affronsky you are the man, first off you direct the drug cinema masterpiece Requiem For A Dream and the rest of your films were great to but nothing tops the Wrestler. I saw this movie friday with my mom and its still with me, whenever I hear The Wrestler by Springsteen all I can do is think about this movie and how much it would suck to just lose everything like he did. Rourke your one hell of an actor.

And for Little Miss Sunshine wow that was a surprise. I wasn't expecting to be attacted to the film the way I was, great film. Just go watch it.

Anyone hear the new Black Lips album yet? What about Handsome Furs?What were your thoughts.

"Feels So Good....

by on

Your Coming Home Soon" Amazing '60s pop song here, I wonder if any of you can guess it.

Wow. It has been it a bit since I last blogged, I actually has lots of time to blog just never felt like doing one up, and had nothing too interesting to bring up. KISS is comming to Halifax and this caused the school to go nuts and get all excited, I don't even like KISS. I find them to be overrated/same sound/gay kinda thing but because all my friends are going I have decided to go along. (I'm terrible with Peer Pressure) And HP if your reading this bro, sorry I don't mean to be dissing one of your favorites.

Anyone ever see or even hear of the movie Snow Angels? I always wanted to see it a bit, so a while back I rented it. It was defiantly depressing, but I still loved it and went out and bought it. It's kinda crazy movie all it does is open up with crazy teen killing another teen, then for the next 90 minutes its just showing you show crazy the killer was, and how much of a nice, good, great life kid was. The movie taught me that even if your the nicest/best person around. God won't always help you out. Then about a week ago I was talking about the film with a friend and he brought up how it was filmed half an hour away. I didn't beliveve him but he was right. It's cool though because David Gordan Green (Pineapple Express) directed it.

Now onto some music. HANDSOME FURS are defiantly rocking out '09 for me so far with their new album "Face Control". Not sure if it's as good as '07's Plague Park which was also genius. All I can say is if your a fan of Wolf Parade go for this album. Its sooo worth it. Might be better then At Mount Zoomer, excluding Kissing The Beehive of course ;P

Not excited for end of Prison Break one bit, altough I only watched 1 episode this season XD. I'm just gonna wait for the DVD then watch it all at once. I actually like it better this way, only problem is I usually avoid life while watching the show. Like when I first borrowed Season 1 from a friend, I didn't wanna do anything else but watch it, till it was over. Just if you havn't watched the show yet do yourself a favor and watch it.

South Parks comming back soon excited guys ;)

That's all. Only 13 days till Christmas. :D :D :D :D

A Message To All GY!BE Fans.

by on

I finally listend to my first Godspeed You Black Emperor album it was F#A# Infinity and well.....you guys really outta clean out your ears. Stupid, weird, boring, noise, garbage, cannot successfully make a 20 minute track. It was a 3 tracked album and was over an hour long. Just awful , just awful. Please try and get all the stuff stuck in your ears out. Thank You.

I watched Slumdog Millionaire the other night and it was fantastic, I think TDK would still be my number one though. (for '08 that is) Any fans of this film defiantly owe it to thereselves to go and watch "City Of God" it's not in English but has subtitles but it's so good I don't even care.

WOW, Christmas is coming up really soon, I really doesn't feel like a year since last Christmas.

Alright thats all I got for yas, see ya's later.
