Okay here i am updating again. I’ve been lazy. My apologies.
Wait. Lemme get your attention first.
This picture needs no caption.
I bought a coupla DVD’s two days ago. Well… a ‘couple’ may just be an understatement in this case. It’s been a while since i’d actually gone out to buy stuff so i sorta indulged myself on a DVD spending spree. These movies should probably last me a good few weeks worth of time spent in front of the TV to keep myself from going out and buying more crap so yeah… DVD’s!
I finally got around to watching Vanilla Sky yesterday. I’ve had a copy of it on VCD with me since December 2001 but i just never found the time to sit down and watch it. Same goes for that copy of Lord Of The Rings that i have. I still haven’t watched LOTR. To tell you the truth, i never really had any interest in watching LOTR. And i still haven’t seen it… and i probably won’t. Not at least til later in the year in November. That’s when the 4 disc DVD of LOTR comes out. And then of course, in December, The Two Towers is gonna be released. So i’ll be pretty much watching both LOTR’s back to back by then.
Anyway, i remember Vicky once telling me how she totally did not ‘get’ Vanilla Sky. How it was just really confusing and all that. Actually a lot of people have said the same. Well i have no idea how anyone could not ‘get’ this movie because i totally ‘got’ it on the first viewing. Kinda like how people didn’t understand the first Mission: Impossible. I saw it on the big screen and i totally got it the first time. While everybody i’d talked to at the time didn’t.
Vanilla Sky’s an alright movie i guess. If you really pay attention, you’ll notice certain ‘clues’ throughout the movie hinting at what’s real and what’s a dream. Oh and can i just say Penelope Cruz annoys the hell out of me? She does. Just like Nelly Furtado. But don’t me started on her.
So yeah, Penelope Cruz. Personally i totally do not understand her appeal. I find her to be unattractive; fucking ugly even, and that annoying voice of hers… the way she speaks. Ugh. I’ve only ever seen her in two movies. Blow and Vanilla Sky. And i find her equally annoying and unwatchable in both movies. I’m never gonna watch any movie with her in it again. I can’t stand her.
I picked up Memento and Following pretty much in honor of the release of Insomnia. They’re all Christopher Nolan movies. He makes really good movies. I haven’t seen Insomnia yet but i was thinking of maybe going to the movies today to catch it. Either Insomnia or Unfaithful. Or maybe even both.
The Princess And The Warrior. I really liked this movie. You’ve probably never heard of it though. It’s from the same guy who made Run Lola Run. And yeah, just like Lola, Princess is in German. Franka Potente’s in it. She looks so different as a blonde. I kinda miss her red hair from Lola. She’s becoming a pretty big star over here. And not just in Europe. To date, she’s been in Blow and she’s gonna be in The Bourne Identity with Matt Damon.
If you’ve seen Run Lola Run and you’re planning to watch The Princess And The Warrior, don’t expect it to be Run Lola Run 2. It’s a much slower movie and it’s probably twice as deep as Lola. It’s got the same underlying themes of fate and predestination just like Lola only twice as slow. But it’s good. It’s really good. I totally recommend it.
Anyway, i’m gonna leave you with a link to the Triumph the insult comic dog skit that was on Conan about a week ago. If you didn’t catch his appearance on TV, i wholly suggest that you download this and WATCH IT. It is fucking hilarious. I never laughed so hard in my life.
It’s basically Triumph, a hand puppet dog, insulting Star Wars geeks standing in line waiting for the opening of AOTC. Funny funny stuff.
17 meg file. About 10 minutes long. WORTH IT.
Get it before it’s gone!
