      Haven't been here in a while

      2 years ago

      Wow. A lot's changed. Reading my old posts and journal's make me cringe a lot more than I thought I would, but alas, I was young. Being 20, almost 21, a lots different. I know I rarely visit this site anymore, or go to conventions, or see movies, but I still try to stay in the loop using reddit more than I should.

      I cannot believe I joined this site when I was 12. God times have changed. Facebook is now on here to log in? Everything looks different. I'll try to keep coming back, hopefully if people want it but I don't see too much of a need. I tried watching new episodes but I can't get myself into them, something feels off compared to the original show in it's glory days.

      Either way, I'm here now, maybe I'll take a look around.

      Red State movie review

      4 years ago

      Hey, me again. Yesterday I went to NYC to Radio City Music Hall for the start of Kevin Smith's Red State tour where he's showing his new movie, months in advance, along with a Q&A.

      The movie, Red State, is his new project, a complete turn away from his past works. Think of like Christopher Nolan directing a Spongebob movie, it would be completely different from his past works. That's how this is like.

      Simple plot, 3 horny boys find a girl on the internet and go one night to find her. They get kidnapped and wake up tied up, locked up, and in a church. The church is like that Westboro Baptish Church, which even gets mentioned, but with guns and more crazy-ness. Events unfold that lead to a WTF ending that I liked actually due to its difference-ness.

      If anyone is looking for silent bob or even jason mews to pop up, don't expect it. The ONLY past cast memebers he got were from Jersey girl and his wife, no one else.

      I'm not gonna say too much to spoil anything but wow, the film is sorta like a soda can when shaking it, it builds and builds, and builds, and then exploads. There's like, not joking, a 10-20 minute scene of a guy preaching, yes, that's there, but right after that, it's like just action packed and shooting non stop until the very end.

      For people who don't like violence but like Kevin Smith, watch out, there's a ton of violence. Nothing too gross, as I've heard people say this looks like hostel, this is not that gory. I'd say this is as gory as maybe District 9 or so. Around that border. Just lots of guns and violence.

      Also, don't expect ANYTHING. If you think something might happen, like it does it other movies, it doesn't. The film completely changes everything about good and bad in film making and makes you so glad it's so different.

      Acting, was, of course, amazing. With people like John Goodman, Melissa Leo, Betty Aberlin, and some others who I can't find on imdb cause it's not there, for some reason, completely up the acting factor in this film. The 3 boys and 1 girl are amazing for the scenes they are in.

      Cinematography, was, wow. He shot it using RED cameras along with the smaller Canon DSLR cameras (for scenes like showing someone in a cage (NOT a spoiler, it's in the teaser, you can see it for a second there.) He cuts so quickly and uses shakey cam for the first time. It's like someone else made this film because the edits and cuts are as consistent and fast as Michael Bay's attention spam, it's REALLY fast. Quick, gritty cuts. There's no bright colors here people.

      Music, very little surprisingly. Just the preacher on a piano for most of the film.

      Overall, I'd say this is a contender, or already is, for one of Kevin Smith's best films in his career. If not the best, then 2nd or 3rd place at least. If you think Cop Out was garbage, like me, this makes up for it in SO many ways.

      If it wasn't for the lengthy, but intreging 10-20 minute preach that just slowed the film down a bit, I would give it a 10/10. BUT, alas, it has to be lowered to an 9/10. STILL, a great rating.

      As for the q&A, well, it was funny, as always, but this time he had the whole cast there, except for one of the 3 boys who couldn't make it. But they mentioned things like Big Lebowski for John Goodman, which I posted HERE, Watch it, it's great, Melissa Leo's oscar curse word and the fact they can use her for marketing parts of the film, and about kevin smith retiring. It was a GREAT night. Hope you guys get the chance to see the film as soon as possible. It's probably my favorite film of 2011 so far and it's already the 3rd month this year! See it when you can!

      Thanks for reading, if you did.

      Been a WHILE

      4 years ago

      I know, I know. I feel terrible about not being here more. I see RVB in my bookmarks everyday and I do nothing. I don't know why. Sigh.....

      News...news...news....

      College time. So FAR, Suny Binghamington is probably the best out of the 3 I got into so far (others are drexel and Pittsburgh) Didn't get into NYU

      Senior year of hs is cool and all but it's slow as usual

      Nook Color. I got one, it's amazing. It's only $250 and it does EVERYTHING. Music, video, pandora, web, and books/magazines/newspapers! It also does chess, sudoku and crossword. It's like an ipad without games and it's $250 CHEAPER than the ipads cheapest model.

      I got a job! WOOT! I'm filming some woman do a video blog for her at home business. Good pay and worth it for I have nothing else to do with my camera, the canon 60d, so far....

      Basically, life's just been moving on. So far this year has been bleh and it's nothing special. I hope everyone else is having a great year. Giving blood tomorrow and I hope everyone gives blood at least once in their lifetime. It's for a great cause. Talk laters!

      Regards,

      Holy......shit

      4 years ago

      I just finished season 8 and I have to say, HOLY FUCKING SHIT. It's gotten SO much better since the first season. From the CGI effects to those awesome action scenes to the dramatic storyline. Just wow. It's gotten a LOT better. I just wish the DVD didn't look so bad cause it's standard definition while I KNOW it's been filmed in HD. It's so pixilated.

      Those CGI scenes, that Tex part in season 8, the whole new storyline, DONUT!!! Arg! Do people know if they are making a season 9 or what? I need to know :P It's been a GREAT marathon. One of my best. I had trouble getting through season 1-4 again since I've seen those like eighty times and season 5 only once or twice but the new seasons.....just wow......

      I officially love Monty now. :P

      Marathon time!!

      4 years ago

      I got the RVB remasted box set, The Recollection box set, and the Grifball DVD in the mail yesterday. I'm doing a full 14 hour marathon of RVB to catch up.I'm up to season 3 already and already half-way through.

      With Yom Kippor today, and no food to eat, watching RVB is the PERFECT thing to do today. Once I catch up, i'll be coming back here more often. It's STILL awesome after all these years.

      ONLY THING, I wish the season 3 director's cut I saw in NYC years ago was released. It was cut by 40 whole minutes and went much better imo.

      Mass Effect 2

      5 years ago

      Hoolllyyy crap. I have NEVER found a game as addicting as Mass Effect 2. I have also never played a game as long either. I have been playing for well into at least 40 hours or so and I'm still on disc 1. Just how long is this game?? I wonder what's on disc 2. Anyone know?

      My old friends older brother gave my brother his ps3, for free,cause he said he had too many or had no more need for it cause he owns like,20 gas stations and he isn't even 25 yet. My brother gave it to me and I found out it works,but is a bit broken. So I just have to pay $150 to fix it and I have completed the trifecta that is the 3 consoles. Woot........ i guess

      What's new?

      5 years ago

      Jr. year's almost done. Horay! My digital video class is awesome but also terrible. I mean, we do edit films and make them but in my group, I'm with people who have had practice with this stuff for years and have serious dedication to it. I'm into that stuff but they are diehards

      The problem is that the year is over and there is 1 more project and every one we have done, like 4-8, only maybe 1 has been my idea. It sucks but i think it's cause my group is too.....selfish? IDK the word. Whatevers.

      Jr. Proms tomorrow night but I'm saving my $ but not going and going to spend more $ at senior prom. Smart

      Movie Addiction and SAT and Avatar

      5 years ago

      I think I've got it. I bought Assassin's Creed 2 months ago. I've played two times since, and since then, seen dozens of movies. I need to get back into gaming :P

      Plus, I got my SAT scores back, got a 1630. OUCH!!! >.<

      510 for both reading and writing sections, and a 610 for math, 8 on the essay. I hate the SAT.

      ALSO, who knew that making a thread back 2 years ago on Avatar would still be popular today? :P It's weird like that. You know? It's also become my biggest thread with nearly 17 pages! WOOT on special honors!

      I don't know about all movie theaters, but I got one pass per week to see a free movie. Add in the free movie posters and quarterly raises, it was actually a really cool place to work. My only complaint really is the inconsistant hours. If a really big movie came out, I'd get 35-40 hours for that week. Likewise if NOTHING new came out, or just a couple small films, I'd be lucky to hit 20 hours.

      They're big because they're straight from the manufacturer, and not store-bought. I got all these posters while working at a movie theater, so they're all that size. =D
