Entertainment: Movies, Games, Music

jeanette, look away... :P

MOVIES

howl's moving castle. another miyazaki classic. i didn't like it as much as i like spirited away or princess mononoke, but it was definitely well-done, in my opinion. if you're a fan of miyazai or anime in general, it's worth a watch.

sky captain and the world of tomorrow. it was fun. and had a retro look... i think that it's really cool that a complete nobody could make it come together. it's not a great movie, but knowing that this guy could do it makes it automatically cool. it's intentionally over the top in a lot of it (dialogue AND special effects). the only thing that really bothered me about this movie was that we're supposed to believe that jude law would dump angelina jolie for gwyneth fucking paltrow? come on! sure, angelina's a little creepy and a little insane, but at least she's SEXY. i mean, come on. gwyneth with those bland features and thin lips... god... that was the most unrealistic part of the whole movie for me. :P

maria full of grace. it was disturbing, to say the least. and like steve, i haven't been this disturbed since i watched oldboy. while oldboy was off the scale in terms of being disturbing, maria only gets about a 6 or a 7. but it was a fanfuckingtastic flick.

junkers, come here. pronounced YOON-kers, not JUNK-ers... which come to think of it, doesn't make that name less funny.... but what do you want from those crazy japanese??? :P it's such a heartwarming tale. read this review on it. what i liked about it is that it's got elements of the fantastic in it, but it's so real at the same time... and i'll admit it, i shed a few tears... okay, i was sobbing like a little schoolgirl, but i tend to do that.

sideways. i am a wine fanatic so i loved this movie. believe the hype. it's that good. and paul giamatti? should've gotten an oscar nomination. he got robbed.

GAMES

zelda: the minish cap. this game rocks. everything about it rocks. the story, the maps, all the hidden shit... i've been playing it on the gameboy advance. normally, i hate GBA games because the controls are small and the graphics suck. but, i love this game. and i have no idea how they fit so much shit onto those little game cartridges!!! it boggles the mind. i've been playing during my lunch hour for days now, but yesterday, i had 7 glorious hours to play. now i'm stuck, but unfortunately, it's farther in the game than where steve is. which means that he's going to need to catch up and beat this boss for me. heh. i have no hand-eye coordination. that's because my parents didn't put any sort of importance on that kind of thing. damn them. anyway, i've never played a zelda game before, but i'm going to play more... after steve beats the final boss for me :P

katamari damacy
. once again, the japanese have proven that they're completely insane. you are the prince of the cosmos. your father, the king of all the cosmos, messes up and loses all the stars. your job is to roll around junk, basically, on earth... and then you give it to your father to put back up into the sky as a star. yeah. it has a great fucking soundtrack... and it's really fun because once you get your ball big enough, you can roll up just about everything. cats, birds, bugs, whatever's in your way... however, as crazy as it sounds, it's really a fun game. i suck at it, but it's still fun.

MUSIC

unfortunately, i can't find the links for these... i've been listening to a lot of electronica again. i know, i know. so shocking, since i never listen to electronic music... at any rate, here are the artists...

grooverider (drum 'n' bass)
andy c & mampi swift (drum 'n' bass) (2 different DJs. i just happen to be listening to a live mix of the two of them together.)
basement jaxx (house)
the stork (drum 'n' bass)

these guys rock my body and i like it rough, loud, and hard. :P

I wasn't a huge fan of Sky Captain either. I admired the way he made the film and it's overall look. But honestly, Gwyneth over Angelina? Get real. She even had that rad eyepatch. Trevor knows that if Angelina knocked on my door he would just have to deal with it until she left...well, that or join in.

I sooooo want an eyepatch after seeing that movie! But I don't think I could pull it off without the ginormous boobs to balance it out. Oh well...

I loved Sideways!! But I love wine, too. Hee. And ever since I saw that movie I can't stop saying "If anyone orders Merlot, I am fucking leaving. I AM NOT DRINKING FUCKING MERLOT TONIGHT!" Of course, to people who haven't seen this movie, I just look like a crazed alcoholic in a restaurant. Oh well.

Angelina rocks, Gods...the dreams I have...um...

The movie sucks though, yeah, Sky Captain? It would help if the movie had some originality to it. I love the fact that the guy did it all on his home computer, that's awesome. But there are even re-used sound effects in it from other better movies...ugh.
