Girls are pussies when it comes to scary movies

Well as most of you probably know by now, i have a strong dislike for going to the movies. Mostly because i hate having to deal with all the people around me. I hate all the noisy fuckers. I hate the people that get up in the middle of the movie to go to the bathroom. I hate the people that talk during the movie. They’re all so fucking annoying and distracting.

But despite all that, my movie-going experience with Saw was surprisingly pleasant. Nobody kicking the back of my seat every 10 seconds, no KIDS (thank you R rating), hardly anyone talking or making stupid cracks. I was expecting lots of stupid college fuckers to ruin it for everyone (there were a lot of them around) but they were all surprisingly well behaved. Barring the people that kept getting up to take a piss or whatever (distracts the shit out of me because i keep catching them walking out in the corner of my eye), it was 98% perfect.

-1% for the stupid walk outs and another -1% for this one silly bitch who was sitting a seat away from me, to my left within my periperal view, who kept tilting her head down and covering her eyes and ears EVERY SINGLE TIME something ‘scary’ was about to happen onscreen. Seriously, WHAT THE FUCK. What’s the fucking point of going to a scary movie if you’re not gonna watch all the scary parts??? She probably wasn’t the only one doing that. Pussies. Girls are so fucking stupid sometimes. It actually pissed me off that she wasn’t watching the movie. Stupid.

Reminds me of the time i made one of my ex’s watch Audition. She did the exact same thing too. Good God. It’s just a movie. Anyhow, that silly bitch in the theater probably spent like half the movie looking down with her eyes and ears covered. I just wanted to reach over, grab her head and force her look to at the screen. What a waste. She would’ve been better off watching Shall We Dance? or Shark Tale or Surviving Christmas or something. Saw wasn’t even THAT scary. I can’t imagine if she’d gone and watched The Grudge instead.

Because face it, American horror just can’t hold a candle to Japanese horror. I actually haven’t seen the remake of The Grudge yet, but judging from the reaction most people had with The Ring (and knowing the fact that The Grudge has more scares than The Ring) she would’ve probably been looking at the inside of her eyelids throughout the entire movie. Nevertheless, that girl pissed me off. What a silly bitch.

Actually fuck it, i’m going to see The Grudge tomorrow and sit next to a girl just to piss myself off again.

So does it live up to the hype? Well it’s definitely messed up (or fucked up; if you saw the R rated teaser instead).

Is it worth watching? DEFINITELY. So go see it before reading any further because i’m gonna go into spoiler territory now.


So. AT FIRST, i was pretty disappointed that i had the movie all figured out. Yep. Totally figured out who the bad guy was within like, the first 15 minutes or so.

See, Saw used the exact same trick that The Bone Collector pulled. They made the bad guy show up at the beginning of the movie, say one line of dialogue, and then disappear, never again to be seen until right before the end of the flick. That happened in The Bone Collector, and it happens in Saw.

Sure, there was that scene that implied that Danny Glover was the bad guy, but i didn’t buy it. Plus, it just wasn’t logical. Good try with that red herring though.

So yeah, i was disappointed that i had it all figured out…


Never saw that coming.

Had the movie ended on that first twist, i would’ve given it a B+

But that second twist ending totally bumps it up to an A-

An A- because the acting is pretty terrible in some parts. What the hell Cary? You were so good in The Princess Bride and Robin Hood: Men in Tights!

By the way, let it be known that they cut out like 8 seconds from the sawing the foot off scene (is that where the got the idea for the title of the movie?) for the R rated cut of the movie. It’s probably a lot gorier in the unrated cut.

Most of the violence happens offscreen by the way. Boo.

Anyhow, i’ll talk about the movie some more in the comments. Lemme know what you thought of the movie.


Camera phone voyeurism


A developer in Tokyo has created an add-on for Vodafone handsets that’s meant to be used as a night filter to let people take pictures with their phones in the dark.

Unfortunately, the night vision camera has an unexpected side effect, according to Japanese developer Yamada Denshi. In the right circumstances, it allows users to see a lot more than they bargained for.

As well as taking snaps in the dark, the Yamada Denshi infrared filter apparently sees through people’s clothes.

I’d buy that for a dollar!


Gaming woes

FINALLY. Free from assignments and projects and tests and exams. For now anyway. I’ve got a stupid research paper to write for my History of Animation class due on the 4th. So i’ll have to get started on that sometime soon.

Got all my classes registered a week ago. Here’s what i’ll be taking next semester:

  • Abnormal Psychology
  • Child Psychology
  • Organizational Psychology
  • Human Sexuality (kekekeke)

    Less than 2 weeks to go before Halo 2 comes out. Dead Or Alive Ultimate is out today. GTA: San Andreas and Ace Combat 5 just came out yesterday. And i just got Paper Mario last week. *sigh* So many games, so little time (and money).

    I’ll be picking up DOAU tomorrow and i’ll probably be getting GTA:SA and AC5 in the mail in about a week or two (from my mom, i refuse to spend US$100+ on GTA and AC when i can get the US$2.50 or so bootlegs sent from back home). But before i do all that, i need to finish off Paper Mario first. Only two chapters left to go (Paper Mario is a great game btw. Lots of LOL moments).

    By the time i get GTA, Halo 2 will probably be out. I have no idea how i’m gonna juggle playing all those games at the same time. Stupid game companies. Releasing all their AAA titles at the same time. Fuck the holiday spending season. They should just spread out all their games releases throughout the year. Who has the money to spend $400/500+ dollars on videogames in two months?? Makes me wish i was back home where i can pick up 5 PS2 games for something like, $12 bucks. Kekeke. Yep.

    Seriously, any of you read the IGN review of GTA:SA yet? Best game ever. 9 point fucking 9. Wonder what Halo 2 will get. It got a 9.7 from OXM.

    And then there’s MGS3, the new Prince of Persia game, Metroid Prime 2, Resident Evil 4 (which has thankfully been pushed back to the first quarter of 2005), Need For Speed Underground 2, Forza Motorsport and.. ….


    (btw, no i don’t download games or play PC games either. so Half Life 2 isn’t on my must buy list. what’s on yours?)

    Anyway, i’ll be on Live on DOAU this week. I’ll probably suck since i haven’t played DOA2 since the Dreamcast days (i never got the third game). Time to get practicing with the demo version. Gamertag: Psykotik 2000.


  • That Ashlee Simpson SNL Incident

    Ashlee Simpson’s thoughts on lip synching?

    “I’m totally against it and offended by it. I’m going out to let my real talent show, not to just stand there and dance around. Personally, I’d never lip-synch. It’s just not me.”

    For those of you who missed it, here’s her excuse for this.


    Her official excuse?


    Ashlee Simpson claimed a chronic gastric disorder was the cause of her lip-synching miscue on “Saturday Night Live” this past weekend. The singer said that acid reflux disease caused her to lose her voice and rely on a backing tape for her performance.

    “It’s so embarrassing,” Simpson said when she called in to “TRL” Monday (October 25), “because it sucks. The total situation was a bummer. I made a complete fool of myself.”


    Oh snap! Another leak!

    First GTA: San Andreas. Then Halo 2.

    And now, The Bard’s Tale!!

    NEWPORT BEACH, CA (October 22, 2004) – Interactive entertainment developer and publisher inXile entertainment today announced that it is considering some form of leak of The Bard’s Tale, its eagerly anticipated action-role playing game (RPG), as a strategic plan to follow a growing trend among Triple A games.

    “The Bard’s Tale is a highly original game in the same category as a Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Half-Life 2 and Halo 2 so we feel some sort of leak that sounds similar to what they have experienced may be the next logical step in our launch plans,” said Brian Fargo, founder and CEO of inXile entertainment. “Of course we would immediately condemn the leak and make every effort to stop it if we proceed with it.”

    “In The Bard’s Tale, our main character, The Bard, is an opportunist always interested in getting goods at a discounted rate so we feel he would applaud some sort of leak,” said Matt Findley, president of inXile entertainment.

    It’s unclear how the leak will be handled, if implemented. Pirated or unauthorized playable game code would not actually be made available over the internet or otherwise but the full version of the game could be attained by game enthusiasts at major retail outlets as early as October 26th 2004.

    For those wishing to help track down any potential thieves of The Bard’s Tale, inXile is proactively offering the following advice: If anyone finds information on websites with links to unauthorized downloads, information, scans or videos, please contact us at
