Why 300 works. [11 Mar 2007|10:01pm]
[ mood | sick ]

Unsurprisingly, 300 is #1 at the box office in its first weekend. Not only that, but its estimated to gross $70 million, making it the biggest March opening in history and the 3rd biggest opening for an R-rated film.

This comes after a mixed response from critics, the negative implying that it was "too political" or not historical enough. Yes, I'll give them the fact that it did pit a team of light skinned protagonists against dark skinned "enemies", but that's all. Any other over-analyzing or supposed parallels to pro-american propaganda is reading far too into it. Relax, and please remove the sticks that are jammed up your rears. The majority of the viewer response was more than positive. We the movie-going population loved the ever living crap out of 300.

Instead of highlighting my favorite parts or wasting your time with the usual fangirl-esque praising, I'd like to interpret why I think a movie such as 300 works, and why it deserves to be the biggest, most celebrated opening in a while.

1. The absence of big-name actors.
It's great when a big movie like this isn't upstaged by an even bigger star. It gives the film a chance to speak for itself, as opposed to being dependent on publicity from tabloid gossip surrounding the film's actors. Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, and David Wenham fit perfectly in their roles, and I didn't recognize Rodgrigo Santoro at all as Xerxes. I'm not saying that it's a bad thing to cast A-list actors, it's just highly refreshing to see lesser known faces delivering stellar performances.

2. An appropriate usage of time.
Running for approximately 2 hours, this film never felt like it dragged on, nor did it end too abruptly. There are handfuls of films which are guilty of both, leaving you with a feeling of either "That's it?" (i.e. X-Men: The Last Stand) or "Okay.. I've stopped caring. Is this over yet?" (i.e. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest) With 300, Leonidas told us to come and get them, and what we got was just enough. I never lost interest, nor did I feel unfulfilled by the end.

3. Something for everyone, males and females alike.
Needless to say, the movie has everything it needs to hook male viewers in droves. The truth is, 300 was as much a cinematic treat for the girls as it was for the boys. A strong, positive, no-nonsense lead female character? Check. Eye-candy? Check, check, check. There's just no way you can not ogle those Spartan's bodies. Plain and simple.

4. Well-crafted.
This movie was in good hands. Frank Miller's graphic novel translated wonderfully to the big screen. There are some stories that don't make good films (memo to Bridge to Terabithia: should have remained a book); This isn't the case for 300. Every visual element shined, from characters to costumes to battle sequences to the simply stunning cinematography. Though it seemed the dialogue left something to be desired, this is forgivable on account of the usage of actual quotes from the Battle of Thermopylae. Or so I hear. Regardless, 300 is a visual masterpiece that the makers should be proud of.

5. Originality among the masses.
Admittedly, this may seem like another swords-and-sandals epic. If it is, it's the first good one since Gladiator. But after a too-serious season of Oscar hopefuls and during a time of penguin movies, too many sequels, a string of crappy horror films and un-funny comedies, 300 is a breath of fresh air. We needed action. Big, huge, Spartan-style action.


And that's that. Got anything to add? Let me know. Frankly, I'd be willing to see 300 again next weekend.

give it up. [21 Feb 2007|10:45pm]
[ mood | moody ]

I'm giving up the following for Lent this year:
-rice (easy)
-shopping for clothes (moderate)
-cheese (difficult)

So that started today. I really love cheese. I really do. Mozzarella, gouda, muenster, brie, american, camembert, monterey jack.. mmm.. ..no! NO. I wonder how long I can last without it. While I was driving home from school I realized that I can't eat pizza now. That's alright, it's healthier. I may not be the most religious or devout practicing Catholic (that's for sure.) but I do like the challenge of giving something up. It gives you a sense of accomplishment in the end, which doesn't happen often.

Heroes was INTENSE this week. I can't believe how effing *powerful* Peter is now. It's highly enjoyable and very much a turn on, might I add. I adored the scene with Claude beating Peter with a stick, despite how odd that sounds. Those two are so my favorite. Claude better not disappear for too long. Very much looking forward to the HRG episode next week. Answerssss. Glorious answers. Finally.

I need to find someone I genuinely want to be with that genuinely wants to be with me as well. But don't we all.

what's the fuss, you gotta be in it to win it.. [18 Feb 2007|01:43pm]
[ mood | working ]

I'm currently listening to The Ordinary Boys' album. It's pretty darn good. It's got an 80's new wave feel to it and it's a lot of fun. "Lonely at the Top" is playing over and over in my head.

I saw Bridge to Terabithia last night with my family. Somehow I think it's probably a lot better as a book.. it just doesn't translate well enough to be a film. It's all about the element of imagination, and it's better to envision what they think about in your own mind as opposed to actually seeing these kids run around the woods throwing rocks and talking crazy. The trailers and tv spots are so misleading if you haven't read the book. The child actors were really good, however. Great performances, and sadly to say they had better chemistry than Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore did in Music and Lyrics. It was a nice film, I'd still say it's better of being a rental.
another random as hell AIM convo momentCollapse )

Time to go to work. Boo.

You are gold.. and.. silver! [16 Feb 2007|07:36pm]
[ mood | weird ]

I love this song/music video so much more than I should. What can I say, it's so 80's, it's perfect:




Yep, that's "PoP Goes My Heart" from the movie Music and Lyrics, and honestly, if they were a real band, I would have fangirled over them. I really want the soundtrack.

Music and Lyrics itself was cute. I myself enjoyed it because of the whole musical aspect. Hugh Grant was entertaining as hell and had really funny dialogue, but Drew Barrymore was a little disappointing.

I haven't seen Grey's Anatomy in about a year, but I watched it last night. Wowww. Drama. I'd actually think it was awesome if they killed off Meredith, she's the most bland and uninteresting character on the show. I've always thought so.

The Office was hil-fecking-larious this week.
I <3 the Bat. He was a cute little thing. Vampire!Jim is strangely sexy. I think it was the deep voice and creepyness. Roy is an idiot.. "your art was the prettiest art.. of all the art." wtf. Cute little Michael and Pam moment at the end. Creed was great this episode. I like how almost everyone had a little bit of screen time. But it's all about Dwight, really. Dwight wins the universe.

Aaron Eckhart will play Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight. A++ casting decision. I enjoy him, yes I do. A far better choice than the Jake Gyllenhaal rumor that was floating around before.

this is all i need to get by [05 Feb 2007|10:37am]
[ mood | tired ]

Past few days amounted to an interesting, semi-relaxing weekend.

I went to the movies for the first time in a month, which is almost like a crackhead finally getting a hit after 4 weeks of withdrawal. It felt so great just to sit in the big seats in front of the giant screen, watch preview trailers, and eat movie theater popcorn with cherry coke. Ahh, comfort.

I saw Smokin' Aces, which wasn't boring but wasn't fantastic either. I'd say rent it if you plan on watching it at all. Michael BluthJason Bateman was the best thing about it, if only for that 'knock it, padlock it, and put on a chain' thing and the women's underwear. I can't really remember most of the characters' names, being that there were TOO EFFING MANY of them. A surplus of stars does not equal a fantastic movie, sillykins.

Saturday hardly happened. I slept till about 3:24 pm. I had been up until 6am the night before. I don't know why.

Sunday I ignored the Superbowl's existence which may be un-American of me but honestly I don't care unless there's a party involved and delicious buffalo wings and tons of snacks, but there wasn't. Instead, Sean and I got waffles again and I got too hyper after 4 cups of coffee due to Ihop's never-empty coffee pot deal. I started quoting Greedo and pointing said coffee pot at Sean as if it were a blaster. Then we played about 6 rounds of Scene-It? and I won 5 of them with my masterful movie trivia skills. He actually might know a bit more about films than I do (or more genres, for I don't care about the ones I don't watch), I'm just good at games. After that we made smores in the microwave. Mm, smores.

February is of no use nor importance to me, and I wish it away as quickly as possible. Please go by faster, you useless short month. All you are to me is work, work, work.

For spring break my family is going to Vegas. Which is awesome and not awesome at the same time, due to the family thing. I'll still have fun, at least I can get into all the casinos now.

School followed immediately by work tonight, but at least there will be a new episode of Heroes on my DVR waiting for me when I get home. :D

Why I love Rainn Wilson and John Krasinski. [26 Jan 2007|06:26pm]

BFF.

the ferret thing = hilarity.

and actually, if you set aside the fact that it's Rainn getting a kiss on the cheek, That's a pretty hot kiss. Oh, John Krasinski.

Also, I was highly amused by this quote I read about In-N-Out Burger:

timeeveryjourney: LMFAO @ this quote: The employees at In-N-Out will do anything to a burger if you ask them.
TheShArKzZz: ahahahahahahaha
timeeveryjourney: ANYTHING
TheShArKzZz: lets go
timeeveryjourney: the power is yours
TheShArKzZz: and demand they sexually abuse our burgers
TheShArKzZz: i want it tied up and spanked
TheShArKzZz: then sodomized and fed to midgets
timeeveryjourney: I want you to put this burger in a DVD case of the movie Babe: a pig in the city. Then cover it with lemon zest.
TheShArKzZz: omg hahahahaha

Worked again tonight, making it 4 nights in a row. I initially was going to go to Japantown today but a co-worker asked me last minute to help cover half of her shift because she needed to take care of her sick brother. It'd take a real asshole to be like 'nah, my plans to go frolicking in san francisco are more important than that' so of course I said I would. On a random note, my youngest co-worker thinks my brother is cute. I'd never tell him so, he's got too much ego as it is.

It's nearly 5am and i'm still awake. Played at Golfland arcade after work and was thrilled to see they had the old DDR Extreme machine. It's much more fun than supernova, mostly because i'm biased since it's the machine i 1st learned to play on. There was an emo looking Japanese guy there that looked like he came straight out of a manga and I thought in that way he was sort of attractive. But still the only Japanese guy for me is Takeshi Kaneshiro, even though he's only half.

Oh noes, another fandom. [24 Jan 2007|01:31am]
[ mood | nerdy ]

Yep, it's official.

I'm now a Heroes fangirl.

I'm only up to Episode 10, so I don't want to comment on stuff you're all probably ahead of. By tomorrow I'll be all caught up and it'll be glorious. Woo woo. This show is fucking intense and occasionally it scares the shit out of me. I really shouldn't watch it late at night in the dark by myself like I continue to do. But it's so, so so good.

And I've accepted Peter Petrelli as one of my many husbands, alongside Matt Bellamy of Muse and Jim Halpert of The Office. I'm not even sure if I like Milo Ventimiglia himself but his character is so bloody intriguing and adorable, with a semi-emo haircut. Hah. I love it. I keep wanting to know more about his power, and what he'll be able to do once he can develop and control it. He's like Rogue from the X-Men except he can have sex without involuntarily killing a person. Which is good.

The whole "Save the cheerleader" thing made me laugh a little, but I still like where they're going with this. It's put together really well. My feelings toward the series pretty much mirror the way I felt during LOST season 1. I'm super impressed, intrigued, on the edge of my seat, and occasionally freaked out. This show is perfect catnip for a Superhero loving comic fan like me.

And once again, I feel like a complete ass for passing it up at Comic-Con this past year. Every year I always miss something that I later become a huge fan of. I skipped the LOST panel before I became a fan, I keep on missing The 4400 panel, I skipped the Serenity panel before I became a fan. Sheesh. I need to make better judgements. I hope the show comes back to Comic-Con this year. They probably will, like how LOST comes back annually. And I will so be there for Heroes this time around.

more TV for me [20 Jan 2007|02:38pm]
[ mood | complacent ]

I now have regular channels, after 6 months of being without them. I see this as both a blessing and a curse, almost like how Spiderman feels about having super powers. Not that that has anything to do with what I'm talking about. I've missed the entire fall season of new TV shows, so I'll be catching everything midseason and not know what the feck is going on. Regardless, I know I'll get sucked in to at least a couple new shows. But which do I watch?

I'm thinking about starting to watch Heroes, it seems along the line of the dork-fodder I'd enjoy. Is there anything else I might like? I'm completely out of the loop with new shows.

Trang, Sean, and I are going to the Muse concert in San Francisco on April 9th. I've heard more than once that they're possibly the best live band out there right now, and I believe the hype. I've seen them live only once as part of a multi-artist radio concert, but never just a solo show. I'm so flucking excited, I can't tell you. I just did, but whatever. skjfdksfjs. Matt Bellamy is beyond amazing. It's not right to be able to sing that well and shred the guitar at the same time. And the keyboard. Geez. And yes, I'd so hit that. But anyway. I can't wait to hear the new songs live, particularly Starlight, Supermassive, and MotP.

This semester I don't have my own car and I'm under a lot of pressure to pass all 5 of my classes or else I can't get into SFSU. That blows. I haven't really buckled down in school in two years, which is why it's taken me so long to transfer. I know I can do it, and I've got potential, but my heart still isnt in it. It's highly laughable but sometimes I wish I could just devote myself to music, like I used to dream. I've always been more creative than practical, but I know I've got to find a job that'll actually pay in order to survive. Going to school makes me feel empty. Working makes me feel empty. Since my band broke up last year I haven't felt the least bit inspired.

It's also beyond me how mostly all of my friends keep hitting 1 year marks with their significant others, if not longer. Am I happy for them? Of course. Do they give me hope? Yes. But still I wonder how it feels to be in a relationship for more than a month and a half. Why haven't I been able to find something that works? I know it was my fault back in high school, but since then I've tried and failed to find a genuine connection with someone I was dating. I know it's bound to happen eventually, I just feel the need to bitch and mutter as two more friends have hit their anniversaries recently.

On a happier note, The Office has been continually awesome this season. My already incessant love for Dwight & Jim grew tenfold during "The Traveling Salesmen" episode, with their slick-as-hell sales call and then their adorable goodbye hug at the end. This week, Dwight at Staples made me want to be a creepier, more efficient sales associate. If only I could be as awesome. And please fire Andy already, thanks.

2007. [07 Jan 2007|03:39pm]
[ mood | happy ]

Happy belated New Year!!

I'm writing from my Uncle and Kristin's house in Albany. I've just had my 1st week of my NY vacation. Lots of ups, a few downs, much much nekozumi adventures with Erin, tons of board games (which I love), bagels, some White Castle, the best Italian food in the country, plenty of Pizza.

On Thursday we were able to get nearly everyone together for a board game/ Nintendo Wii night which was fundiculous. I now know the addictiveness of the wonderfully simple and family friendly Wii Sports. So fun. Scattegories is great. Right now I'm in love with Trivial Pursuit Pop Culture 2. I like to pwn it as much as possible and have won twice, but I'm still a bit rusty in some areas. I also need to own my own Scene It? game. I was reverting with Erin's Super Mario 64 DS game, which makes me want my own Nintendo DS. Just a wee bit. God I love Mario 64.

Erin and I had a magical Chinatown adventure which started off with the best Anime store ever, followed up by knock-off designer bag shopping (I got a fake Gucci for myself and a fake Coach for Alexa, yay cheapyness) and then the most amusing bootleg DVD experience ever. It felt like a drug deal, more so than the other experiences we've had before. Then later we left with a dozen porkbuns. Oh, Chinatown.

I've still got to see a few other people, but so far so good. Had a huge fight with mom over the phone on Thursday night, but all is well.

As for New Year's resolutions?

-This year I will not allow myself to weigh over 125 lbs. (more ddr, har har)
-This year I will not drop a class without a valid reason. (I usually drop 1 out of lazyness or overworking)
-This year I will learn either more French or electric bass (or both? ooh.)
and -This year I will take more action in general. (or I'll try, at least.)

I also have Facebook now so if you've got it, let me know.

I do miss my sister, dad, my dog, wednesday adventures with Sean, and talking to Tom. The only food worth missing in Cali are In-N-Out burgers, but the food is just too fucking good here in NY to give a shit about those. :D It's also insanely warm here on the East Coast and I'm starting to regret that I mostly packed clothes for a blizzard. It was 69 degrees yesterday and frankly that scares me. My grandma loves it, but she's not the one who has to live through the impending melting of the ice caps. Eesh.

Erin got me a replica Hermione Granger wand from The Noble Collection for Christmas. I'm over the moon about it. Finally I have my own wand and you bet your ass I'm taking that thing to the midnight Order of the Phoenix premiere like a complete and total loser. Yesssss.

On a closing note, despite our many quirks and flaws, I love my old friends. It's so great to see them. /sappyness

All I want for Christmas is you [24 Dec 2006|11:50pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

To those that celebrate it:

Merry Christmas!





Hope it's filled with good food, great presents, and grand-tastic times with your loved ones and/or friends.

Jenn was my Secret Santa at Sanrio and got me adorable blue star pj pants and a Harry Potter calendar, which made me a very happy camper. My family and I exchanged gifts after dinner, and I got new clothes from everyone. They all liked the gifts I got them, further fueling my obsessive good-gift-giving complex.

We had a yummy Christmas dinner with seafood and steak, and delicious apple pie for dessert. mmmm. It was the 1st Christmas we've had in our new townhouse.

As usual, the grandparents sent money. I think I'll use half of it towards getting my 1st electric bass, if I don't go broke in New York next month. eek.

HP book 7 title, cut for ppl who dont want to know, which is pointless because it'll be everywhere soon enoughCollapse )

Thoughts?

Eh, I think it'll grow on me. Now here's for hoping it'll be out on 7/7/07 as speculated, though I doubt it. A release around Halloween seems more likely.

Regardless,
me = excited.

Any new HP news is good news to me.

Also I now have my very own Force FX lightsaber. It's made of pure unadulterated winnage mixed with awesome with a dash of hell yes. The one I own is the Darth Maul model, though it only comes with one side (you have to purchase another and join them together to get the full effect)

My friend Sean gave it to me for Christmas, which really surprised me. I felt a bit inadequate, though I did give him a 1/4 scale model of The Helm of the Mouth of Sauron which he seems to like a lot. I'd just feel better if if it were at least 1/2 scale. Needless to say, the lightsaber is the best present I've gotten all year(unless my parents surprise me with an electric bass, though I doubt it!) and will be nearly impossible to beat. I'm still in disbelief that I own one after bitching and moaning about wanting one for over two years.

It's so awkward when your managers add you on MySpace- You can't reject the add requests because hello, they're your boss. And once you're on their list, you then have to sort of watch what you say in blogs/bulletins and even whats on your profile itself. It's just as bad as having older relatives as myspace friends, if not worse.

So now I have a manager from each of my jobs as friends on my MySpace, but luckily they're both cool. But they'll probably find out what a giant fangirl/lazy-ass/overtly hormonal lunatic I really am. Great. At least I still have my LJ to hide in and say all I want whenever I want without fear of what the reader would think. Especially since I don't think anyone really reads this anymore, besides myself and maybe Lala, Erin and Pri, and a handful of others?

In the spectrum of dating/crushes etc. not much has changed. There's a cute girl and a cute guy I work with at B&BW, but the chick is probably straight and judging from the guy's myspace he's smitten with a lady friend. Doesn't bother me, they're just fun to look at while I'm working more and more these days. I have a friend here in the area that really seems to like me and would probably be an awesome and caring boyfriend if given a chance, so it'd be great if I felt the same.. but... I don't. And you can't really help the way you feel, right? Especially when I still have feelings for someone else.

I just worked 6 days in a row and felt like a total zombie for the last half of my shift tonight. Thank God I have tomorrow off.

I'll be in NY in 1 week and 2 days <3

[ mood | blah ]

Today sucked.

Double shifts. Didn't have enough time to get lunch between them.
One of my first customers today was such a gargantuan bitch from start to finish. She was so inexplicably cruel to me that it just had to be some kind of sick joke. Unfortunately, it was quite real. She spoke to me as if I were incompetent, and insulted my customer service abilities because I wouldn't comply to her special requests. I felt the need to mention it to my supervisor, telling her "that last lady was really mean." She replied with "yeah, she was like that the second she came in, even when I was trying to help her." Some people.
Clearly it set the tone for the rest of my day.

Then kids started getting on my last nerve over at Sanrio. I literally wanted to pick some of them up and chuck them across the store. Parents leave them unattended, which leaves the runts to their own evil devices and they start messing up displays and asking me pointless questions. It's like babysitting. Just like babysitting. We don't get paid enough for that crap.

There was a random funny moment, though.
(While working at my Hello Kitty store)
guy calls in and asks: "Do you have Hello Kitty?"
me:a little confused, wondering why someone would ask a question with such an obvious answer. I reply with "Um, is there a specific product you're looking for?"
Him: "No, I'm just wondering if you sell that product line. Hello Kitty."
me: *looks around, is pretty much surrounded 360 degrees by said kitty* yeeah..I
think we have something like that.
him: "ok, thank you."
silly.

The Office is nominated for a Golden Globe! YESSSS.
It. Better. WIN.
And lets make it a double win 2 years in a row for Steve Carell. Holla.
I'm dying to see tonight's Christmas episode, but I wont get to until Saturday. Was it better than last season's episode?

tis the season to be in debt [12 Dec 2006|12:53am]
[ mood | blah ]

Finished with finals in 4 days.
2 weeks and 5 days until I'm in New York.
Counting down? You bet your ass.

Movie releases suck hard these days, so I'm leaning more towards music temporarily. Also, my friend Sean just got an electric guitar which adds to the sudden music-love. He's trying to teach himself, and I'm hoping to get a bass sometime soon so we can dork out and attempt Muse covers together.

There's a lack of new music that's even half as good, so I'm back in my OMFG MUSE SO GOOD mode. I've mainly been playing the same few of their songs over and over, though. "Starlight" wont get out of my head and I've been playing it on my keyboard, trying to find the right voice setting for it (does anyone know?) "Hysteria" and "Supermassive Black Hole" are the next 2 with the most plays in my car/mind.

I've asked for an electric bass guitar for Christmas from my folks, but if they don't get one I'll eventually buy myself one when I can afford to.. which will be a long long time from now. :P I'm not quite there yet with chords so I'm thinking the transition from violin to bass will be easier than switching right off to guitar.

I've only got one more present to buy, thank goodness. I do love holiday shopping, but I'm so broke. It's no surprise that I'm making less money than I was last year, but at least my current jobs arent stressing me out half as much as my food service job was. I've really got to save up for NY, so I'll be working my tail off as much as humanly possible these next two weeks. I need it. Even my one credit card only has about $500 left on it. But I can't NOT buy presents on Christmas. That would defeat the whole essence of it for me entirely. Also, I can NOT give crappy gifts. I won't allow it. Hence, my minor dilemma. It could be far worse.

Last night I dreamt I was shot at a mall while asking for directions. I had gotten lost somewhere and for some reason I was on a bicycle. I work at a mall, so this kind of freaked me out today as I went in to do my night shift. I woke up in tears, though I hadn't died yet by the end of my dream. I was slowly dying and asking a sales lady to call my parents and tell them what happened. Effing morbid.

I can't wait for the new Christmas episode of The Office this week. :D

My absolute favorite part of The Office this week:

Dwight: What was the absolute worst thing about prison?
Michael as "Prison Mike": The.. dementors.

LMFAO. Fandom crossover! So much love.
I also loved the line about gruel sandwiches and gruel omlettes. And Jim messing with Pam via Andy.


Just saw Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby for the second time after I saw it in theaters this past summer. So chock full of hilarity begging to be quoted. It's like Anchorman in the way that it seems funnier when you quote it afterward and think about the dialogue, except Talladega Nights is not as good a movie. I also hate cars in general, which could be another factor against my opinion. But I did love Jean Girard. Have I mentioned that I love watching Sacha Baron Cohen? Too funny. I want you to say "I love crepes".

I changed my simple layout to festive Christmas colors with a header of The Office (US). Love.

I'm finally all caught up with the series until Season 3, Ep 8. I'll probably watch this week's ep on Saturday. Alas it has lost a bit of the magic of the magnificence that was Season 2, but it's still plenty entertaining.

I really don't like the new people, probably because I'm just not welcoming to sudden change. I was fine with them while they were in Stamford, but I don't want them in Scranton. It annoys me that Andy tries to steal Dwight's comedic thunder and the Karen subplot feels rushed and underdeveloped. My favorite moment so far was Jim sending a fax to Dwight from "future Dwight", warning him about poisoned coffee. I can never ever get enough of Jim messing with Dwight.

Work has been reasonable, last weekend was my busiest work weekend thus far as expected, but I did get some shopping done in between. I also just bought DDR Ultramix 2 for XBox along with 2 dance pads, so that's gonna take up what little free time I have between classes and work, definitely. It's awesome because it's practically like a mini workout in itself. I wish I had the regular stationary metal dance pad like the arcade version, but those are pretty pricey. Regardless, I love DDR.
