Umm... yeah. I realized my mistake after I went to bed last night, lol, that Godzilla is Japanese. I might to say I'm interested in Oriental cultures.


>Oriental

Really? Do people even actually say that anymore? 0_0

On-topic, I don't actually watch a lot of movies, if only because my attention span is kind of crap. I have a bunch I've been intending to watch, though. (Including Pan's Labyrinth, which I had INTENDED to watch around when it first came out, but never got around to seeing...)

I see I'm not alone then.

I watched a silent movie from 1918 called Stella Maris in film class the other day. It was actually really good but I found myself getting bored not because of the lack of dialogue but because there was no camera movement. Cinematography just wasn’t the same back then!

I'm watching X-Men Origins:Wolverine this exact moment.

This is a bad thing, I should be watching the movie now instead of posting this.

I should at least wait for it to finish.

I’ve been watching a lot of Todd Solondz these past two days. Yesterday I re-watched Storytelling, which I’ve decided is actually an amazing movie despite how unrefined it appears to be æsthetically. It makes these really groovy statements about the intersectionalist nature of fiction vs. non-fiction art but it’s also kinda about how some people expect things without really working for it.

Then, with The Red Snifit, I watched his newest film Dark Horse which may or may not be my favorite of his work so far. It builds upon the latter theme and I think it’s a bit more relevant one to our times but maybe hits a bit too close to home sometimes? But that’s what I like about it, too.

We also watched Life During Wartime, which I liked but I think it’s my least favorite of his films so far. It just didn’t have as much of that razor sharp, incisive, aggressively tragicomedic writing that dominated his other works.

It’s kinda funny, though, that when my partner is gone off to Portland for the night I’m sitting here watching all these dark comedies about terrible people. She finds them horrifying.

I recently watched Thor. It's really not that great. Not a bad movie, but nothing special.

Now that I've finished Season 3 of Stargate: Atlantis, I can move on to The Ark of Truth, then Continuum. Unfortunately, I found out last night that they've been pulled from Netflix, so I've got to settle with the probably low-quality rips I have on my hard-drive. Oh well, as long as I get to watch them.

I'm recently watching some "Will Smith" films.

Now I have finished watching the first Men in Black. It's.. good.
Really, it's a very good movie (it's probably the most popular science fiction movie), it's just I have nothing extra to say about it.

Oh well, I'm heading to the two sequels. I hope I can find some time to see them before the week ends!

I will (obvious spoiler is obvious)

Just finished the movie "Devil", which is some 2011 horror movie with some people in an elevator and stuff happens. It was honestly pretty good, and probably the first horror movie I wasn't embarrassed for the characters throughout the whole thing.

Have you seen Dark Horse? I went back when it closed a local film festival last year. I loved it; Solondz really hits the perfect mix of tragedy and comedy.

As for me, I'm going to a local theatre that's showing older films tomorrow with a friend. We're seeing a pair of noir films - Cry Danger from 1951 and M from 1931. I've never seen either so that's pretty exciting. A few weeks ago we caught The Lady Vanishes, one of Hitchcock's earlier ones, and Bringing Up Baby with Katharine Hepburn. It's amazing how well the older stuff tends to hold up!

Aaaand done! I finished watching the Men in Black series.Wonderful!

That took less longer than expected, since I had lots of free time the last two days.

I'm remaining "idle" for some days until I get to see anything else.

Yup! I watched it a second time the other day and I still really like it.

I also watched Sunset Blvd. which I honestly didn’t really enjoy until the end. I was pretty undecided but the ending made me go, “yeah, I like this movie.” It might grow on me more some day, I’m sure, like how Citizen Kane grew on me. Like, don’t get me wrong—it’s got some great filmmaking and incredibly memorable dialogue—but Joe kind of annoyed me. And I also fell asleep during it. But that’s because I was in class and barely got any sleep the night before.

My friend tells me he thinks David Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. is his own personal response to the failure of the “Hollywood Dream” and I can definitely see that. I think I like Mulholland Dr. so much more, though, because it represents hopes and fears and anxieties that are more modern and real to me and I like the abstract way it’s presented.

My girlfriend showed me 21 Jump Street which marks the first time in a while where I watched a comedy where actors are, like, directed to act like they’re actually in a comedy. Which was weird. I liked it, though, because the movie affectionately satirized/subverted 80s and 90s teen comedy tropes.

But it also made me think about how the average shot length in mainstream film is just getting lower and lower. I could write about how this bothered me but it’s really late and I’m having trouble maintaining coherence at this hour. Maybe it has to do with the fact the editor also edited Transformers? There was a fight scene that had all this shaky camerawork and loud pounding music.

My dad won a competition and got two tickets to see Scarface (1983) and brought me along! You know it's a good movie when you don't leave to go pee. Even better, when you consider it's a 3-hour movie. I'm surprised that I hadn't seen it before, but it's a great movie!

Now I just need to see the Godfather trilogy. I somehow manage to avoid the good movies.

There seems to be an unwritten rule about me being always late to the party.

In this case, it's about watching the movie "Hunger Games".

As usual, they cut down some scenes from the book, and they changed the ending. umm....
To describe it shortly, in comparision to the book, the movie seems to have less action, I don't know how to say it. It's a good movie anyway, it's just I like the book more.
