I've never heard music like this before! I didn't even know this kind of rap music existed. O_o;



Movie Review: Tangled (in 3D)

Tony and I just got back from the theatre. We watched Disney's newest release, Tangled.

Basically, it's a revamp of the story of Rapunzel. But, she's a stolen princess whose hair was originally supposed to be brown, and she has green eyes. Every year, her parents, the King and Queen, light lanterns and release them into the sky on their missing daughters birthday. Every year, on her birthday, Rapunzel looks out her window at night and looks at all the lanterns. She feels deep inside that they are somehow related to her, but doesn't know how and desperately wants to find out. Her "mother", who is actually a witch named Gothal, refuses to let her even ask about leaving, let alone think about it. Everything is going smoothly for the witch until Flynn Rider enters the scene, and things start going missing left and right! (if I tell you anymore than that, I'll ruin the movie ;p)

Tons of great laughs! I'd recommend this movie to anyone who can tolerate a little cheese and loves several good laughs in a row. :) The characters were all really great, so of course the actors did good jobs. I loved the animation, the score, the 3D! It was an all around good movie, with a couple very short moments with a creepy factor in them. I give this movie 5 stars! <3

That concludes this movies review! And now, a little extra something:Collapse )

Movie review time!

I've seen many movies in my absence. I will begin to review them here. (lol)


How To Train Your Dragon in 3D

In a word, awesome. The graphics were beautiful, the 3D, amazing, and the music was spot on. It fit into every scene like a leaf fits on a tree. The characters were great, the voice acting was awesome, and we loved the story! I could see a lot of myself in the main character, Hiccup. A beautiful story/movie, and I'd recommend it to anyone who isn't "too grown up" to watch a cartoon movie. I give it 5 stars! lol


The Expendables

A horrible HORRIBLY stupid movie. An excessively cheesey action flick; the kind Tony normally likes... but hates this one. We both did. We were criticizing it less than 30 minutes into it. The acting was bad on almost everyones part, the story was very crappy, and way too many big names that were pointless in the movie. I could just imagine Sylvester Stallone thinking something like this while writing the movie "How can I make myself look MORE awesome than Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Stone Cold, and (whoever else was there I'm missing) put together??? AND I need to put in a lot of big names, too, to draw the crowds! Yeah, yeah, yeah, thats brilliant!" Ugh, I was rolling my eyes the entire time. We should have walked out on it, seriously. DO NOT WATCH! I give this movie NO stars! :D


The Last Airbender

I HATED this movie! Every time someone pronounced a name wrong, I corrected them! That was how irritating it was to me. The acting was crappy, Zuko was UGLY, EVERYONE had the wrong skin color, and everything was pretty much way less awesome than the cartoon show. >_> But in the words of SOKKA (not Soaka), "at least the effects were decent." Even in that, it could have been better. The plot, the characters, the acting, pretty much everything stank worse than a rotten egg concealed in a plastic bag! All the actors were trying WAY too hard. And what was up with Aang going all Avatar State at the end??? And WHAT HAPPENED to my epic ending, with the giant awesome blue fish of universe juice and doom?! (you may have to watch Kung Fu Panda, if you haven't already, to get that) PLEASE, M. Night Shamalamadingdong (<--thats what Tony likes to say), JUST no! NO!!! I give this movie a negative 2 star rating.


Iron Man II

I can't remember much, on account it's been a while since I've seen it, but Tony and I liked it pretty good. :D The effects were really awesome, and the acting was great. The plot was pretty good, but not quite as epic as the first one, but pretty close. I can't remember the score, but it must not have been so bad that it stuck out in my mind. lol I give this movie a 4 star rating! :D


RED

This movie was everything I had HOPED The Expendables would be. Hilariously funny, yet action packed and clever. The acting was perfect, the comedy again I say hilarious, and the action was amazing! And SO clever! I'm really not sure what all else to say, but it is for sure worth a look! Tony gives this movie a 4 star rating, but I give it a 5, 'cause I'm feeling generous. ;)


Megamind 3D

Clever, hilarious, cute, touching, and at times, sweet. I loved the animation, the characters, the punch lines, the music, the action, AND the surprising twists! There comes a one that you don't expect, but it turns out to be surprisingly pleasant. It was Will Farrell's only good movie, and he played the part like a dream. An all around good movie I'd suggest to everyone who isn't too grown up to sit through it. You'll get your lolz and your sweet moments, too. I give this movie a 5 star rating! 8D

A letter to M. Night Shyamalan

Dear M. Night Shyamalan,

Thank you so much for what you did to the Avatar: The Last Airbender franchise. I truly appreciate you taking an already awesome TV show, and rewriting it the way you see fit, instead of just leaving it the heck alone and going on the story that Mike and Bryan created.

I know you said that watching the show became a family event in your house, but are you quite sure you even paid attention?! Since when did Aang get a stupid cross-like thingy on his back?! No, I have nothing against crosses, but now probably a LOT of Christian people are going to be calling the movie and/or the character Aang blasphemous. Thank you so much for that.

And what is with the racist casting of the movie?? I do believe that the everything in the show, including characters, were strongly Asian inspired. So it would make sense that the CAST also be all, mostly, or at the very least HALF Asian.

What the heck is up with Aang being all serious and EMO looking?! NO 12 year old child, especially male, the universal embodiment, or not, is going to be that serious. Especially in the avatarverse when that child is an Airbender.

I doubt this movie will be worth the money it takes to put gas in the vehicle to drive to the theatre. If the movie turns out it's made of FAIL, well, you know why. You'll only have yourself to blame.

Sincerely,
A true Avatar: The Last Airbender fan.

This is the End Times, people. Now is a good time to get right with God. I'm not trying to preach to you, but God loves you, unconditionally. Don't listen to the negative thoughts running through your mind. Don't. I know that somewhere inside you a part of you wants to believe that there IS a God and that he loves you.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

I am not sorry, but whoever said that this movie sucked was dead wrong. The husband, Rebecca, and I went to see it last night. So I know for myself! HA!

What you are about to read is the opinion of the writer, i.e. ME! :P


You come into the theatre expecting some really great CG work, unforgettable acting, incredible fight scenes and an awesome plot.

Well, it did not disappoint.

The movie follows James Howlett (Logan/Wolverine) throughout his life. We get an idea of how old he actually is, though the comics give you a better idea of how old he is. It starts during the mid 1800's. At the beginning we see how he first learns about his bone claws. In the movie Wolverine and Sabertooth are brothers, though originally, in the comics, they aren't. At first, James and Victor (Sabertooth), stay together and together, get recruited by a guy named William Stryker to serve his/their country. They agree, and join a secret league of mutant operatives.

Through the beginning of the movie we notice that Victor increasingly becomes more violent and learns to love spilling blood. James notices, and as Victor becomes more blood thirsty, James becomes more wary and disgusted by his brother. At a pivotal point in James' life, Victor goes overboard with the killing and takes innocent lives. James stops him, and then decides he has had enough blood shed, and walks away from the league.

Six years later, Logan is living in Canada with his girlfriend Kayla, working as a lumberjack in the wilderness. One day Logan gets a visit from Stryker, who asks him to rejoin the league. Logan turns him down, and that same day he picks up a scent. A scent of blood. He discovers the body of his beautiful girlfriend, covered in blood and 3 slash marks on several of the surrounding trees. He figures it was Sabertooth and goes after him. He encounters him at a bar, and they fight. Logan has gotten rusty, and his no match for his brother. At the end of the fight, Sabertooth breaks off Logan's bone claws on his left hand and leaves him there.

Logan ends up in a hospital where Stryker meets him once again and convinces Logan that if he comes with him, he can give Logan an advantage. An advantage that will allow him to get his revenge on Sabertooth. Logan agrees, and that's where he gets his bones covered in adamantium (sp?). Right after the procedure is done, things start to go down hill, and fast. And thus more exciting for us, the viewer.

I'm afraid that if I go on, I'll ruin some important twists for you, if you decide to watch it, so I shall stop there. ;)

Hugh Jackman did a phenomenal performance with Wolverine. His character was totally believable. To be truthful, all the actors' performances were really great. They pulled off a short-haired Sabertooth really well. Much better than the guy in the first 3 X-Men movies. The movie delivered on all accounts. It even had a couple unexpected plot twists, which meshed together really well with the whole film.

There were 1 or 2 small scenes where you could tell it was CGed because it could have been done better, but other than that I have no complaints. I (As well as Rebecca and Anthony) am one satisfied customer.

Haven't updated in a WHILE

For Valentine's Day I got Anthony a cute lil purple lion with curly yarn for a mane and he's holding a heart that says "Lets get crazy!" He got me a giant green frog with a lip mark thing on one cheek. He got me a wedding present of a bouquet of flowers in a beautiful vase. He also got my birthday presents early, but I told him he had to wait till my birthday to give them to me. But he begged to give me at least one, so I let him. xD It was Star Wars the Clone Wars. XD It was pretty good, I liked it. ^^

Then Sat. night some bad things went down, but I won't bore you with the details. Yet, at least. We all learned an important leason that night, hopefully we won't forget it soon.

Inspired by Anne Frank and Jon Chisdez (sp? Sorry if I got it wrong! >o< ), I started keeping a journal again. Yay. I hope that I will actually fill it up this time instead of leaving off it half way or most of the way filled.

I bought Tomb Raider: Underworld about a week and a half ago. It's really fun and my only complaint about it is Lara can now only jump a foot from the ground just pressing the jump button. And she jumps like a pansy 6 year old girl, no offense. She can't jump worth crap unless it's from one high-up oddly position place to another. In the old Tomb Raider games she could jump like an Olympian, like 4-5 feet off the ground. It's like because they decided to make the new Lara Croft look older they also decided that her joins needed to age as well and so now she can't jump straight off the ground for sh*t. It's a real eye sore to watch her, once a great jumper/athlete, to have fallen so far. Kinda pisses me off that the creators did that. Idiots.

Why I'm voting Democrat

Why I'm voting Democrat:

I'm voting democrat because Barbara Walters is my idol and so is P.Diddy.

I'm voting Democrat because English has no place being the official language in America.

I'm voting Democrat because I'd rather pay $4 for a gallon of gas than allow drilling for oil off the coasts of America.

I'm voting Democrat because I think the government will do a better job of spending my money than I could.

I'm voting Democrat because when we pull out of Afghanistan and Iraq, I know the Islamic terrorists will stop trying to kill us because they'll think we're a good and decent country.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe people who can't tell us if it will
rain in two or three days, can now tell us the polar ice caps will
disappear in ten years if I don't start riding a bicycle, build a windmill or inflate my tires to proper levels.

I'm voting Democrat because it's alright to kill millions of babies as
long as we keep violent, convicted murderers on death row alive.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe businesses in America should not be
allowed to make profits. Businesses should just break even and give the
rest to the government so politicians and bureaucrats can redistribute the money the way they think it should be redistributed.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe guns, and not the people misusing them, are the cause of crimes and killings.

I'm voting Democrat because when someone with a weapon threatens my family or me, I know the government can respond faster through a call to 911 than I can with a gun in my hand.

I'm voting Democrat because oil companies' 5% profit on a gallon of gas are obscene, but government taxes of 18% on the same gallon of gas are just fine.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe three or four elitist liberals should rewrite the Constitution every few months to suit some fringe element that could never get their agenda past voters.

I'm voting Democrat because illegal aliens are not criminals, are not sucking up resources through government aid, hospital services, education,
or social services, but are just people trying to make a better life by coming to America illegally. We can't blame them for that, can we?

I'm voting Democrat because the same teacher that didn't teach my child to read can reasonably educate them about sex.

I'm voting Democrat because my trial lawyer's crippling multi-million dollar lawsuits against doctors, hospitals, drug companies, and HMO's will make health insurance and medicine much more affordable.

I'm voting Democrat because Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, and Jesse Jackson will end racism once and for all.

I'm voting Democrat because Christians in the Republican Party are intolerant, theocratic warmongers and atheists like William Ayers have never hurt anybody.

I'm voting Democrat so that no family member of mine will die in a hospital bed. They will still be waiting in line for Obama's socialized medicine, so they will never actually make it into a hospital bed.

I'm voting Democrat because I like eminent domain and big business and government kicking me out of my home and taking my land.

I'm voting Democrat because everyone knows that raising taxes at the top won't hurt people at the bottom.

I'm voting Democrat because skin color and good oratory skills are more important than judgment and experience.

I'm voting Democrat because protecting barren wasteland is more important than energy indepedence.

I'm voting Democrat because my college professor told me that America is evil and should give up its place in the world.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that Cuba, Russia, and China should be on the United Nations Human Rights Council.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that everyone is essentially good -- even people like Ahmadinejad who call for the destruction of Israel. He just needs a little understanding.

I'm voting Democrat because we should all be forced to drive ugly cars with the horsepower of a riding lawnmower.

I am voting Democrat because I believe in change; although I don't know WHAT the change will be, or HOW it will happen, AND I am pretty sure that I won't WANT to actually change anything I do, but still....I believe in change.

I'm voting Democrat because the government knows how to raise children better than parents do.

I'm voting Democrat because I want the rich to work harder, give me their money, and pay for my services so I don't have to.

I'm voting Democrat because I don't give to charity or do volunteer work and then I complain about how selfish everyone else is.

I'm voting Democrat because I've seen welfare help so many poor people become self-sufficient and upwardly mobile.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm not driven enough to realize my dreams without the government holding my hand the entire way.

I'm voting Democrat because I want America to be Europe's prosthetic limb.

I'm voting Democrat because I think we all should be equal...equally unhappy and unsuccessful.

I'm voting Democrat because life just isn't fair and I deserve what other people have without working for it.

I'm voting Democrat because I like hearing the word "Change" 50 million times in presidential debate, seeing the word on celebrities' t-shirts and bags, on signs outside of million dollar houses, and know that the only change that is going to happen is that I'm going to work 40 hours a week and not even see a penny of my paycheck because taxes will go through the roof!!! YAY!!!!

I'm voting Democrat because Barack Obama is better than you, and he knows it!

I'm voting Democrat because I like how democrats can cause financial crises' like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and have the temerity to blame them on Republicans.

I'm voting Democrat because Obama was endorsed by Hamas and terrorists endorsements are a must to achieve world peace.

I am voting Democrat since I believe those who are lazy, druggies, high school drop outs, etc. should be entitled to the money I wake up every morning and work my butt off to make!

I'm voting Democrat because fire can't melt steel.

I'm voting Democrat because for some reason "change, change, change"..is the mantra for the obama camp...so, since he won't explain what 'change' is...i guess he's asking for parking meter fare?...i have three quarters in my wallet.

Im voting democrat because it's the COOL thing to do. I'm hip and in the majority.

Im voting Democrat because I listen to and believe all the celebrities/actors who so passionately want Obama to win because I can't think for myself at all. The same celebrities who WE make rich because we GO SEE their movies and watch their T.V. shows put millions of dollars into their pockets! but...these multi-million dollar celebs are so disheartened by AMERICAN ways and the capitalistic economy we have and the world will come to and end if another Republican comes into office...hmmmmm...

I'm voting Democrat because I'm a complete retard and because "Hillary said so"

I'm voting Democrat because I won't be subjected to any criteria for meeting U.S. terrorists and having a cool-aid with any of them, and one last critical factor.

I'm voting Democrat because of the War on Terror. We have not been attacked once since Sept. 11, 2001, and that was caused by Bill Clinton, but I still don't feel safe.

I'm voting Democrat because communist economics always work. Look how well off the Soviet Union is right now. That wall in Berlin has never looked better.

I'm voting Democrat because I agree with Joe Biden, that it really is patriotic to pay more taxes. So I'm going to pay a "direct tax." Instead of wasting time giving it to the government for redistribution, I will give my money to derelicts who loiter outside of liquor stores and methadone clinics. That's where it ends up anyway. YES WE CAN ... screw up this country like never before.

P.S. This is also a group on facebook... if you liked this then search it. Its called Why I'm Voting Democrat.

Woop!

Today is Sunday and I went to church! Yeap! You read that right. The past 3 Sundays I've gone and it's the first time I've gone that many times in a row in quite some time. Probably almost or over a year. I'm glad I started going to a new church. The new preacher at the old church was just too judgmental. You get to suspect somethings up with a preacher when his message is basically the same every time you come and doesn't seem like coincidence that the "message" is to pass his own judgment on those who don't fit into his idea of a Christian (I have a nose ring, my sister AND her friend both have babies). And no, I do NOT think its coincidence that [every time I come] he preaches the same thing, only with different wording.

This new church I'm going to is really nice, too. I feel good going to church, and this particular church makes me feel really happy. And I feel more at ease than ever. (Also I've rededicated my self to the Lord) I don't feel judged in this church; just the opposite. I feel welcome more than ever. I am so blessed to have found this church.

I'll keep this short, but I want to say to all my friends on LJ (because you know I love ya ;D) that Jesus loves you and he died on the cross for you so that you might be with him in Heaven; and that there is a Hell to shun. You don't want to go there, and I don't want anyone I know to go. Thats all I wanted to say. :) <3

Also, know that just because I'm going to church again and have rededicated my self to God, don't think I'm going to judge anyone of you for any reason. So no worries everyone! :D

I bought Fable II yesterday, the Limited Collectors Edition. After work I went straight home and played it from 6:30 pm till 3:33 in the morning. How many hours is that? I haven't counted. In Fable II it is possible to chose between being a girl character, or a male character. Naturally now that I have a choice, I chose the female character. In case you are not familiar with the inner workings of the world of Fable, I'll explain a small portion of it so you can understand what I'm about to tell you.

When your character uses a certain method of killing an enemy (melee, like sword or club, ranged, like an old timey shot gun or crossbow, or "will" which is a form of magic, sorta like the Force in Star Wars) you get experience points in that area. For example, if you kill an enemy using only a ranged weapon, you get experience only in ranged weapons area, and that experience can be used to improve any or all of the areas in ranged weaponry, such as the speed with which you shoot or the accuracy with which you shoot with. Well, I mainly use weapons like swords and maces, things like that. Well, once I got a certain amount of experience in that area, I was ready to "upgrade" my character, and since I don't like my characters to look small, shrimpy and wimpy, I like to upgrade their physique, and I'm sure I don't have to explain to anyone reading this. So instead of making the female character looking muscular once her physique has been upgraded, the makers of the game thought it would be hilarious if, instead of muscles, she looks fat. Thats right, they make the FEMALE CHARACTER look FAT. Bastards.

Not that I have anything against fat/over-weight people, because I don't. But does it make ANY sense to upgrade a characters PHYSIQUE, and instead of muscles appearing, the exact opposite appears? At least Soul Calibur IV adds visible, ACTUAL muscles to the female characters when physique is as high up as it can go. Fable II was supposed to be MORE realistic than the first one. WTF?!?!

-END OF FABLE II TALK-

A couple weeks ago I saw two movies in theatres. Eagle Eye and Beverly Hills Chihuahua. This is their review.

Eagle Eye
Shia LaBeouf and Michelle Monaghan play the main characters, and Shia plays an identical twin. Who is dead. The movie practically opens up with Shia attending his dead brothers funeral. The scene was quite sad and very moving.

I'm not really sure how to give a movie review, so from this point on I'm just gonna... sorta go with the flow. Whatever comes out, just comes out. Please don't think me stupid. n.n;

Anywho. I thought that Shias performance was really good in this movie. He really gets into his characters with the best of them. Michelle was also really good next to him. As it's own movie it was really enjoyable.

That aside, I'd like say that I recognized certain things about the movie that were probably "borrowed" from other, more exciting and better plotted movies. Especially the main nemesis of the movie. I immediately though they got the idea for it from I, Robot, and to be honest, didn't really appreciate it, though they did add quite an interesting twist to it. The chase scenes were a bit repetitive, and now that I think about it, they didn't actually advance the plot. Poor Shia. He could have found a better movie to star in.

Oh, yeah! I almost forgot my main complaint about the movie. The whole point of the movie is to stop the "bad guy" from killing the president. And the way it is arranged for the president to be killed, is by putting an explosive device in a childs trumpet, so when he presses down a certain valve it will trigger the bomb, killing him, everyone in the building, and the building itself. The childs elementary school band was going to play the Star Spangled Banner for the president, they had so around the 9 to 12th measure of the song, the trumpets would hit a certain note and "boom", everyone, everything dead. The MAJOR flaw with this is: The trumpet has already pressed down this same valve within the first 3 measures of the song. Everyone would have died, and Jerry (Shia) and Michelle (can't remember her name) would have completely failed, as well as being dead. How do I know they should have all died? I play the trumpet, and I was in the marching band. As every American knows, in high school football games, whenever its a home game the home teams marching band plays the Star Spangled Banner. Yes, I've played it multiple times. If they hadn't made that critical flaw, the ending would have been really good.



Beverly Hills Chihuahua

I loved this movie. It was HILARIOUS. A lot of parts were quite silly and/or didn't make sense (like 4 cougars hunting in a pack; everyone knows that they are very solitary creatures), but it IS a childrens movie, so I can overlook those things. There were a lot of "Awwwe!" parts, either because it was really sweet or very cute. As it were, in the theatre a latino family with young children sat next to me, and one of their little girls was sitting beside me during the movie, and whenever I would say "Awwwe!", she would look up at me and smile, like she thought it was the coolest thing ever that an adult or "big kid" would say "Awe!" at a kids movie. She was very cute. ^.^ Anywho, during the course of the movie, half the time I was laughing louder than the kids. Maybe it's because I have a huge funny bone and it gets tickled easier than others?
