Entertainment: Movies, Music, Comics

::MOVIES::

Kandukondain Kandukondain (the english title is "I Have Found It"). loosely based on jane austen's sense and sensibility. again, starring the beautiful Aishwarya Rai. have i mentioned that i totally have a crush on her???? the movie could've been like an hour shorter...but, then again, so could most other indian movies. hehe... it was enjoyable... with singing and dancing in true bollywood style. i thought it was a fun flick... but, in the second half, the subtitles didn't match the sound... yeah, it was a little unnerving... made me enjoy the second half a little less...

I ♥ Huckabees. man, that existential shit just boggles the mind... an amusing movie about an unamusing topic... i loved it... but i'm also very strange. i decided i don't like jude law as much when he's doing an american accent. what is it about accents that make him so much hotter? i don't know. regardless, lily tomlin was awesome, dustin hoffman was okay... jude was good as a pompous bastard... and i ♥ jason schwartzman. no, really. he was awesome in this flick. naomi watts' american accent was way better than jude's. but that's okay. i'll forgive him... do you hear that, jude??? i forgive you! come back to me.... uhm... yeah... heh. sorry. i'm okay now.

::MUSIC::

Beck: Guero. i know i said something about this last week... but i just heard the single, E-Pro again. FUCK ME! IT ROCKS. from the beastie boys beat in the beginning to the na-na-na'ing... this fucking single kicks so much ass! i don't even know where to begin.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind Soundtrack. i really loved this movie... so listening to the soundtrack just reminds me of the movie... bliss.

Celso Machado: Mistérios do Rio Lento. collaboration between Celso Machado and another talented guitarist, Christina Azuma. their music together is just so, so beautiful...

Can't go a week without listening to drum 'n' bass... Been listening to live shows from Andy C and Concord Dawn... They always make me want to jump up and down and nod my head... oh, and smoke weed... but that's a whole other thing... :P

::COMICS::

Ex Machina: written by Brian Vaughan (of Y: The Last Man fame). yeah.. pretty much anything Vaughan writes is gold. this is no exception.

Hunter Killer. i liked the first issue. i don't know enough about comics to really write anything here. i just liked it. yeah. so there.

Kandukondain Kandukondain happens to be a south indian regional movie, which tend to be longer, and more music-oriented than regular Bollywood too!!

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind OST is amazing ain't it?? i loved it!

I'm totally impressed by that awesome heart symbol you busted out with. sweet.

I've gone through a few indian flicks my pal from bangladesh recommended. yea. long. but very very well done. no dancing though. mostly just people dying. the sister. the mom. the dad. it was like platoon meets family ties.

beck? he's a nutjob. and that's good. talk about throwing things together. how does he do it? if you watch the documentary 'skratch', which I recommend to anyone because it totally kicks ass, you get to see some footage of his DJ. psycho.

I really need to see more movies. have you seen the new star wars cartoons?

so i have to say i adored 'I heart Huckabees,'sorry i have not heart symbol making skills. great flick. and it tied in with my philosophy class nicely, so that always helps. and i must ask what you think of a local band here, you can get back when you find them, Black Black Ocean. they're a crazy band, they're like Cursive meets the Mars Volta.
