Medicine for Melancholy- review


I loved it! It wasn't perfect but I felt the script. You guys are sleeping. This film is about a man and a woman who have a one night stand, then spend the next day getting to know each other.

Big Star (I was pleased but this star isn't for filmmaking amazement)

Avatar-review

Avatar- I got up early Saturday and headed to Seoul just to see this film. I got a ticket for the IMAX 3-D show at 12:30. I ran into one of my co-workers and her boyfriend used his point-card to get me free movie snacks. (smile) Well, this was the most painful movie going experience I have ever had. I think I was too close (better yet I know I was too close). I was in the 3rd row b/c the theater was packed. My eyes hurt so bad. Afterward, it took a few hours for my vision to return to normal. I felt the film was a bit boring. I was not moved and I think this is all b/c I sat too close and saw it in 3-D. I did watch it through my black people lenses and I couldn't help but think about the evil non-native man coming taking over land and killing off the natives. I compare this film to the Last Samurai. I just want to know why can't the natives rise up and fight and stand up for themselves without the help of some strong foreign white male hero that survives while many of them die? This has nothing to do with the look of the film which I really can't judge b/c like I told you before my eyes went crossed. It looked cool but I'm also not a sci-fi lover. I can't even rate the movie. If you see it in 3-D, get good seats.

United States of Tara -review

I know I should be writing or reading but I like to have something playing when I am in the house. Anyways, I watched the 1st season of this show. The show is about a woman named Tara who has alternate personalities. (one a teen, one a redneck male, one a stepford wife, and the last one a mysterious creature) The show is pretty good. The acting is great. I love the husband character. The actor that plays the husband has a sweet voice and on the show he is the nicest guy taking care of this woman with alters. The kids have their own lives that add to the whole show. If you are thinking about watching the show I say give it a try.

Veronika Decides to Die-review


Veronika Decides to Die- Sarah Michelle Gellar stars as a woman in her mid-twenties that is unhappy with her "perfect" life. After, a drug overdose her parents check her into rehab. In rehab she learns how to live and be happy again. It took me four days to finish this film. The reviews had me thinking this must be some great emotional film that would make me feel good deep down inside. Wrong! It was odd, predictable at times, and really deep into the world of an unhappy woman's fantasies. Melissa Leo and her character's story is more interesting than the rest of the film. For that small part I will give this film a small star.

Aviator- review

Aviator-I borrowed this film from my film buddy downstairs. He told me so much about the film and described an OCD scene in the film. I popped it in on one of those up too late nights. The film is great. I do think it should have ended about 5 minutes earlier. The acting is great and the film looks great. You guys know I'm a sucker for films about films and making movies. I think the film should have won best picture that year since they won most of the other awards. I'm not sure if should have beat out LeoJamie but still it was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than Million Dollar Baby. Big Star!

Glee- the TV Show


Glee- I try to talk mostly about movies but I want to know your thoughts on this show. This is a new show that I discovered. I saw a youtube video of them doing their version of "Bust Your Windows" and wondered what is Glee. After, some research I found some of the episodes online and watched a good percent of the season. I think the show is cute it reminds me of "Boston Public" a bit but more focused on the kids. I don't like all the song and dance numbers with the so-so singing. I think the show is good enough to watch on my quiet afternoons. What do you think?

Bruno-very short review



I watched Bruno this weekend. The concept was funny but the film was just hard to get through. The only part I really found humorous was the Gayby part. Pass on this one.
I don't think a smiley can express my reaction to this film. I was not amused.

Eating Live Octopus

Hey,
Yesterday the parent's I teach took me to dinner after our last class. I got to try live octopus. Well, it doesn't taste bad. It taste like raw fish just like when you get it not squirming on your sushi plate. I guess after they chop up the tentacles, they still have life left in them(insert smiley here). The thing is it was sticking to the plate and to each other. The suction cups made it hard for me to pick it up to eat. In addition when I put one in my mouth it tried to stick to the inside of my cheek. Unfortunately, the pictures and video I took are on my cellphone and I don't know how to get them off of it. Since this is so I will share some youtube videos with you.
