Punch-Drunk Love

What the heck is the point of this movie? I liked it, the acting was great-- adam sandler gives the performance of his lifetime and Emily Watson, wow, just wow, but the story sucked. It just wasn't as interesting as PT's other films. The characters were interesting, but the story they were in was god awful. I still was entertained, but I like the entire cast of this film so that's why. Is this better than Magnolia? Not on your life, but if you like Adam Sandler (who is awesome in this!), Emily Watson, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and Luis Guzman you should see this. Just ignore the fact that it is poorly written.

Bowling for Columbine

I have just seen THE most influencial movie that I have ever seen in my entire movie-going life. Now, before you read below, I want to warn you that I express my opinion (what a concept!) in this review, and if you are sensitive to that, please read at your own risk. There are also spoilers, but you may have heard about the events in this movie on the news, when they actually happened.

Halloween

Here it is. But there are some kinks that I hope to work out tonight but I am about to go to best buy to get a keyboard for my brother. I don't even know why he needs one but its only like 15 bucks.

hey do me a favor, surf my site and look for all the glitches, in case I missed a few. Just comment here if you find any. I already know that the comments page is showing the wrong skin, and the entrylink pages are messed up, I think the latter is a missing div tag problem. thanks!

Girl's Club

What the hell, why does FOX cancel Ally McBeal (not complaining) then let David E. Kelly create an identical show called "Girl's Club"? He (and FOX) must have a thing (fling) for single female lawyers...

Dreams are Weird

I had the strangest dream last night, well at least the one I can remember. There was this lake and you could go to it, the lake people would put this thing on your tires and you could drive around in the lake. But it wasn't a real lake. It as a flooded street inside a building and there was a scientist doing experiements in this sectioned off part of the lake/street. Around the edges were concrete the water was shallow because the lake people were low on funds and could only flood so much of the street. I remember being worried for my dogs because were running up and down the flooded street (don't ask) by themselves and would not stop. I thinl it was supposed to be an amusement park because we rode right back to where we started, and then another car went in the lake.

God, I can't believe I remember so much. Any clue was this dream means?

Oh, Igby Goes Down is NOT playing near me, so I'm not going to the movies today. :(

Rules of Attraction

Like brother, like brother...boy oh boy, the Batemans sure are one fucked up bunch. Yes, if you are unaware, "Rules of Attraction" is based on a novel by Brett Easton Ellis, who also wrote the novel that "American Psycho" is based on. 'Pyscho has Patrick, and 'Rules has Sean, Bateman. Okay, time for the review.

Where should I start? I guess I'll start with the bad reviews this movie has been getting. Most of those reviews say the characters seem shallow, selfish, and greedy, and that the film lacks a plot. Hello. Did you not understand the 80's, or were you born in the 90's? The 80's was about all that, the characters in "Amercian Psycho" were about all that, being shallow, selfish, and greedy. Sure, 'Psycho had more of a critic-friendly plot, but 'Rules has a plot too.

It's just not like any other plot, in fact, if you have ADHD or just weren't paying attention, then you probably would say it doesn't have one. But it does. It portrays Ivy League college life briillantly. Okay, I never went to one of those schools, so I don't really know, but the reason I am saying this is because the characters were believable. If the characters are all believeable then the plot and setting is too. I guess if you want, you could just call it the "anti-plot", but it still works, no matter what you call it.

Let's "rock and roll", as Sean Bateman put it, to the acting. James Van Der Beek is brillant as the pseudo-rich kid at college. Is Ian Somerhalder gay in real life? He sure portrayed his character well. There's Jessica Biel, "Blue Crush"'s Kate Bosworth, and the lovly Shannyn Sossamon. There's three cameo's: a wonder boy, Bonnie Parker, and a guy named Lance. Can you guess them? Kip Pardue ("Remember the Titans"), has a wonderful 5-10 minutes of fast paced Europe touring, which is gonna be a docudrama because Roger Avary got over 70 hours of footage for a spot in the film that is only at most 10 minutes. Let's just say I am on pins & needles. Overall, the acting was pretty good. Russel Sams has a hilarious scene with Swusi Kurtz, but Clifton Collins Jr seems to be a little over the top as Rupert Guest, the drug dealer. I don't know. I don't know any drug dealers.

Did you remember the connection between this movie and "American Psycho" or are you one of those ADHD critics who weren't paying attention? Okay, that was wrong, and I apologize. Anyway, there are two references to "American Psycho", I won't mention them, you should go see the movie. I just wish there were more, maybe throw in another cameo. Christian Bale! That would have been sweet.

Do I recomment this film? Not if you have ADHD. Okay, I will stop that. You shouldn't see this film if you are offended by lots and lots of sex, both hetero and homo. That probably turned off a lot of you right there, but if it didn't I applaud you. Movies can be graphically violent and be rated R, whereas a movie about sex get's a NC-17 rating at first. Murder is worse than sex, hell sex isn't bad at all.

I have been following the making of this film at Roger Avary's online journal since Early-May, and I want the DVD. What was cut out? Ooooh let's just say I am on pins & needles.

I am disgusted.

Which is why I am going to bed, but I wanted to rant:

I just saw the news that congress has agreed to go to war against Iraq. Jesus fucking Christ, Tom Daschel and the rest of the democrats just got bullied into taking the "president"'s side, therefore I am not voting for Daschel, if he runs. He won't because he's a fucking dumbass. And Bush is a faggot and a redneck but also a major dumbass.

If we go to war against Iraq, not only will it cause another 9/11 tradegy but it will also start World War III. Don't believe me. Just wait and see, because our "president" is just the kind of faggot who will do this. He's nothing but a fucking puppet, anyone know the master? Papa Bush.

I will not fight if drafted. This is NOT my war and Bush is NOT my president. I didn't vote for him, half of America didn't vote for him. Don't get me wrong, I love my country, by I am disgusted at our "president" and the wimps in the Senate.

Now let me sleep.

Red Dragon

Those of you who have read my reviews before probably know that I hate remakes, but I haven't seen "Manhunter" before so I thought I should see "Red Dragon". I wasn't dissappointed. This movie is flat-out awesome. I mean, it has the great Anthony Hopkins, Edward Norton, Ralph Fines, Phillip Seymore Hoffman, Emily Watson, and that guy who is the assistant principal on "Boston Public" (he was also in "Silence of the Lambs"!) If you have not seen this film then you abosutely must. I was not a fan of Brett Ratner (the director), Rush Hour was pretty decent but the sequel flat out sucked, but I love the hannibal series so I had to see this movie. You wil not be dissappointed.

"President" Bush will kill us all

Why the hell are about to start another war when we haven't even finished the so-called "war on terror"? What a joke. Furthermore, why does our "President" feel the need to attack another country simply because he doesn't like their form of government? Geez Mr. "President", America isn't loved by every country you know...if/when (election time) we go to war and even if we do not knock Saddam out of power, the arab nations that hate our naked women loving guts would attack us. Who's to stop them? War just leads to more war. Tell me when it didn't do that. Please, humor me.

Bush will kill us all. Here's how: we bomb the shit out of Iraq, Osama bin Laden quietly regains power in Afghanistan do to the attention on Iraq, after we leave Iraq to start another war on Canada or Alaska (somebody tell bush that's ours), Osama bin Laden gives Iraq (or some other arab land) a nuke (or two) and they destroy Washington DC or some other big city.

Just my two cents. I respect your opinion, please respect mine.
