Whenever I go to my dad's for a day or so, we always go through a movie marathon. Like that time I watched 11 movies in three days. I don't actually remember them now, but I do remember that none of them were spectacular, so I probably am not missing much. Today's score: five(5) movies in about twenty-two(22) hours. Five movies in a day; I think we did pretty good. Actually, I
did pretty good, because he watched maybe one and a half before falling asleep. And there is no better way to make your brain shout "I give up!!" than to watch several mind-bending videos, all in a row. In order of viewing, I watched
[last night, before going to sleep (four am)]
Pan's Labyrinth - A really really
good movie, even though it is in Spanish with English subtitles. It's a violent fairy tale, reminiscent of the Grimm Brothers, just much more [better].
Fight Club - Now THAT was a good movie. It's not just about a fight club, either. Well, it is, but there's a bunch of other stuff that's going on as well that I will spoil if I continue talking.
Apocalypto - It was a decent film; not the best but definitely enjoyable. I must admit, I didn't realize that the whole entire movie was in Mayan and I was just putting voices and subtitles together until this afternoon.[this morning to this afternoon]
Bourne Identity - An action film. This was probably the least exciting of the bunch, because of the disappointing way the People made it clear what had happened to Jason Bourne. It required little to no thinking, but was a pretty nice movie either way.
The Prestige - By far the best movie I saw these past twenty-four hours. Heck, the best movie I've seen in quite some time. The plot was twisted, the characters demented, the circumstances so out-of-control and unfathomable that I'm STILL trying to dissect it all perfectly. Unfathomable? That was a fun word. Maybe not entirely accurate, but still fun.
So that's what I did all night/day. That, and making other people's brains hurt in Hot Topic. That is so
much fun. If you haven't tried it, I say you haven't lived until you do. Top priority, right up there with eating squid tentacles,* running on train tracks also being used by a train, and starting a fight with a total stranger.
*No, I do NOT
want to eat any. Thank you; I'll save my suction cup usage to sticking things to windows and mirrors.
**Oh yeah, excuse my atrocious grammar today. I'm exhausted, and don't feel like changing the minor mistakes I made. Basically, I'm too lazy. Go ahead, you can call me on them if you like, but don't start a fight you can't win. (Kidding!)
