    • Hey RvB, Long Time No See

      11 years ago

      SteakDinner

      So, I'm thinkin I'll come back to RvB. I miss it lol. My last journal is about how I enjoyed my senior prom...and now I'm in the middle of summer after my first year of college lol. So to play catch up, college was great, made a lot of friends, had a good time, did okay grade wise, blah blah blah. Luckily I had a good roommate who I liked so much that I'm rooming with next year. She doesn't really like anything that I like, but she also doesn't mind that I put up a painting of Bruce Willis from Die Hard on our wall. So I'd say all is well.

      But anyways, enough of that. What do I usually love to do on RvB? Talk about movies. I've been to the movies pretty much every week this summer and for the most part I've been a happy lady. Let's start a ways back with...

      Forbidden Kingdom - Now, I love me the kung fu movies, and I'm convinced that Jet Li is the coolest mother fucker on the planet. So not suprisingly, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. The kids in the beginning are awful actors and there's some childish dialogue, but you don't have a movie with Jet Li, Jackie Chan, and Collin Chou with Woo Ping Yuen doing action choreography and end up with a bad movie. The action was fantastic, the movie was visually pleasing, and I loved all the references to other kung fu movies. I'd love to see a sequel, with Donnie Yen as the villain. I'm always down for Jet Li vs Donnie Yen.

      Iron Man - This was just the best movie ever. Robert Downey Jr was great. I can't wait for more from Marvel.

      Hulk - It was good. Ed Norton's great, good action, and a great moment where the Hulk gets mad at lightning and throws a rock at the sky. Not the best movie ever, I don't really like the character of the hulk to begin with, but not a bad movie by any means.

      Indy 4 - A lot of fun. Really silly plot, but for the most part it was a straight up Indiana Jones movie and I had a really good time with it. Some A+ moments, and Shia was a good addition. A nice installment to the series.

      Narnia 2 - Despite a ridiculous song at the end of the movie trying very hard to ruin the film, overall it was very good. I think Peter was too much of a little bitch, but I still really enjoyed the movie and really want to see another made.

      Hancock - Hilarious first half hour, then a sudden 180 in the tone. You could tell it was edited down. I did still like the movie, and I hope to see a director's cut which would make the movie flow better. Worth seeing.

      Wanted - James McAvoy was good, and a nice action scene at the end.....that being said neither of those things could save this shitty movie.

      Hellboy 2 - I loved it. I loved the first one (which is overlooked if you ask me) and I like Luke Goss so I was excited to see him as the villian. This movie lived up to my high expectations. It was funny, it was badass, it was very good visually, and really good action. Everyone should see this movie.

      I think that about covers it. Hope everyone has been doing well!

    • Here's what I've been up to.

      SteakDinner

      Well, I went to my senior prom and had way more fun that I thought I would, and I thought I was going to have an awesome time. My prom date decided to play sit outside on his cell phone instead of play be a good date, but I just hung out with my friends and danced with other guys. I didn't really need him to have a good time. It was definitely my favorite prom I've been to, which I figure is fitting because it was my senior prom. =)

      The best part though was camping that weekend with all my friends. A bunch of kids from my school were on the trail too, so it was just one huge weekend long party. It was practically right out of a movie, and so much fun. Plus I'm one of only 5 kids out of over 100 who didn't get a ticket for that weekend, which is awesome.

      Anyways, I've also been to the movies a bunch lately.

      First off, Knocked Up was hilarious. I love Judd Apatow, and he completely lived up to my expectations. I was excited for it because of Judd Apatow, but also because I knew every damn actor in that movie. Paul Rudd was absolutely the best part of the movie though. The scenes with Kristen Wiig and Alan Tudyk were also hilarious. If you like Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared, you'll be excited to see all the actors again. Anyways, if you haven't seen this yet, go NOW.

      I went and saw Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer and it's really just a fun movie. So is the first one for that matter. Are they great, changing-the-world-of-movies-forever films? No. Are they fun, enjoyable pieces of entertainment? Absolutely. Take it for what it is, go see it, and have some fun. Be a little less uptight and enjoy life people. Galactus may be a cloud, and Jessica Alba's eyes may be nightmare inducing....but that doesn't change the fact that it's a fun movie with an awesome looking Silver Surfer.

      Now, I had been hoping that the Dead or Alive movie wasn't ever coming to theatres. I really absolutely love the games. And not just because I like to see hot girls with bouncing chests (joke), but because they're fun to play and I do like the stories. They made it into a movie that only had character names in common with the game. I mean, all the girls worked together, Helena was a ditz, and Jaime Pressley and Kevin Nash played father and daughter despite looking the same age. I laughed occasionally at some points, and maybe if I liked girls I'd have liked the movie more. But being a fan of the game made me kind of want to cry when I saw this. Especially at how bad of an actress Devon Aoki is, and how ridiculous Hayabusa looked.

      So that's what I've been up to. Also, I officially graduate from highschool on Sunday! Take that, bitches. Highschool was fun and all, but I'm ready for college.

    • Well,

      12 years ago

      SteakDinner

      I was gone for about a month. First it was my prom, then I was out of town for prom weekend, then it was exams, then it was out of town again, and then it was bad internet. But I'm back, and due to the zillion alerts it looks like I've got a long day ahead of me...

    • Disney....

      12 years ago

      SteakDinner

      ...should have only made one Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I thought that the first one was very good and very clever. Then I saw the second, and it almost ruined the first one for me with their pathetic attempts to recreate the first, down to making the same damn jokes. However, I still remained hopeful that the third one would salvage the series following in Indiana Jones's footsteps. I was an idiot.

      I just got back from seeing the movie at midnight (I refused to see it before because I think it's bullshit that it opened at 8 on thursday) and I am severely disappointed. It's better than POTC 2, but in no way is the movie good. I'm about to be really harsh, but whatever. The movie was occasionally funny and cool, but it just wasn't enough.

      -Dumb and uncalled for things happen, and the deaths that occurred seemed random and without feeling.
      -Gross things happen. Not as bad as the second in this aspect, but Davy Jones is just fucking gross. No need for that shit.
      -The fight scenes seemed to have steadily declined throughout the movies.
      -The movie was ridiculously confusing. I mean, it's POTC. If I can't follow it, what the hell are all the kids who see it going to do?
      -Not only was it confusing, but little or no explanations were given to the things that happened. It just made no sense.
      -They ruined the characters. This started in the second, but stuck in the third. I'd like to point out that in the end of the first, Will and Jack were a bit of a team, Elizabeth was with Will, and Norrington became less of an ass. I'm sick of regressing characters just to make more unnecessary plot twists.
      -For all I know, the movie wasn't confusing and I merely didn't get the facts due to the fact that, despite speaking english, several of the characters needed fucking subtitles. Needed.
      -Terrible, terrible ending. I'm pretty mad.

      Well, right now I'm hoping that I just fell asleep in theaters, dreamed what I saw, and that POTC 3 is actually a good movie. Doubt it though.

    • Heroes!

      12 years ago

      SteakDinner

      So, I won't give anything away from the Heroes finale, but I will just say it was phenomenal. I absolutely loved everything that happened except for the very last thing that happened with Sylar. I feel like that is exactly what a season finale should be though. They wrap up this season's story, give you a little cliffhanger for next season, and at the end give you a glimpse of what's to come. Great fucking show.

      Now I'm off to watch what is 99% likely to be the series finale of Veronica Mars.

    • Whoops...

      12 years ago

      SteakDinner

      Yeah, I forgot I had wanted to say more about Spiderman 3 later. Oh well, I'm sure you've already read at least 300 posts about it so I'm sure you won't mind if I don't keep my promise. It was an entertaining movie that a lot of people will love I'm sure, but I was disappointed and it just wasn't a movie for me.

      Anyways, all my TV shows are ending and I'm wondering what I'm going to do once they're done. I mean, I guess I could go outside and enjoy summer.....but I'm sure I'll still be missing Heroes.

    • Spiderman 3

      12 years ago

      SteakDinner

      well, it's 3 in the morning and I just saw Spiderman 3. Apparantly, it's impossible for the third movie of a superhero to be on par with the others. It's like the people working on it lose their self restraint and have to go cheesy. I'll go into detail when I'm not so painfully tired. It was still definitely a good movie though.

      I assumed they were released chronologically. I only ever got the box-set. I'm yet to see any of them and stopped reading half-way through the book of the current film. Must read them actually.

    • g_fresh

      11 years ago

      Yeah I think Zack Synder will do justice to the book.

      Like somethings might be cut out of the movie, but they said that they're gonna release everything on dvd and such. Which sounds insane to me.

      lol, thanks

      I passed Maths though

      that was the one I NEEDED to pass to continue my physics major in my degree.

      and of course thats a common reaction, English major? We already speak english, we don't need a Degree for it ;)


      however, you can then be called an Englishtologist!

      oh well, I know now who to send my essay's to for proof-reading ;)

      I've been good. Ever since I built my machine things have been looking up. That is, until I quit my job two weeks ago. I should have a new one tomorrow though (Circuit City). It was nice having time off, but it is strange going from work at five in the morning to about three in the afternoon six days a week to nothing.

      Don't let the whole having "Yu-Gi-Oh" in the title scare you away from watching the series...
      a lot of our fans actually hate the actual show and card game...
      we make fun of it..

      If you start watching, I would recommend watching at least the first 4 episodes before making any judgements... cause normally by episode 4 people are hooked.
      Also, my friend does EVERY SINGLE VOICE himself.
