So I have been on summer break for a little over two weeks now. And most of what I have been doing is watching movies. Ever since I started my Netflix account thats what I end up doing most days. And I like it cause I am able to catch up on movies I didn’t get to watch. I think I am a little obsessed with it right now. I have been watching a lot of movies,  some of which are pretty good movies. Aside from watching movies at home I have also watched two really good movies out in theaters too. Up and Hangover. Both movies I recommend for people to watch. I also recommend Secret Life Of Bees, Into the Wild, and Smart People .

Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

weirdness.

April 7, 2009

Saw this video and thought it was very strange. What are your takes on it? I guess I can see the correlation to the song and video but yeah. It kind of tripped me out. Oh well, its art.

flightless birds.

March 25, 2009

Kina Grannis, a very talent singer, covered the song “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” by Iron and Wine. This song speaks so much volumes and I already love this song as it is. Kina’s cover is just as good. She put a little of her own twist to it and I like it. She is a very talented artist and you should check out her other covers and originals.

For those of you who do not know this Iron and Wine version of the song was in the movie Twilight. Where it was placed for the movie was perfect. This song is so deep and touches my heart every time I hear it. I get this weird heart palpitation (I know I am weird, get over it. I warned you all before that I am). I don’t know how to explain it, but I guess this song just speaks to me. If you haven’t heard the original here it is. This is a live version of the song.

Enjoy life.

picture-36

This weekend I purchased the Twilight DVD. I also watched most of the special features. I have not gotten to finish them all yet because I bought the Target version and been watchign it with my little sister. I found the specail features fun. I really liked them. I found many things funny. Like I watched the commentary of the movie and there was very interesting things said amoungst Kristen Stewart, Catherine Hardwicke, and Robert Pattinson. It was cool seeing the various extended scenes and deleted ones too.

This weekend I watched so much Twilight because I first watched it with my cousins and a few of my church buddies, then i watched it with my parents before I left for the week. So, this whole weekend has been all about Twilight for me. I must say though. It has gotten me excited again for New Moon. Also, to read the Twilight again and possibly the other books in the serious too.

If you haven’t seen or read either the movie or book give it a try you never know you might like it.

love.

March 20, 2009

i_love_you_manAfter watching Adventureland, I caught the midnight showing of I Love You, Man with my boyfriend, J Diaz, and his roommates and their girlfriends. Two funny movies in one night. Two good movies in one night. This is a movie you all have to see. Jason Segel is freaking brillignt in this movie. I was laughing so hard in this movie too. Paul Rudd I think took it home with his awkwardness and the most random, never before heard sayings. It was just great. I liked how Jason Segel seemed to be a mister cool guy in the movie too. It was different from how he was in Forgetting Sarah Marshall.

So without saying anything that further divluges into the story, I will end right here. But please go watch it. Is worth the money to see it.

Have a great weekend.

adventure.

March 19, 2009

I just got back from watch an advanced screening of Adventureland, and I must say that I like it. Of course, I reccommend it to you all. This movie was funny with still having a very serious tone to it. It is a good mixture of romance and comedy. Movie was set in the 80’s. The leading actors were very good. The lead male character, played by Jesse Eisenberg, had a very Michael Cera appeal to him, but do not get me wrong he played the role well. Kristen Stewart, who is best known for her role a Bella Swan of Twilight, was the leading lady in this movie and did somethings that I have not seen her do. Although I must admit there were times in the movie where I was seeing Twilight and not Adventureland.

I thought the other characters were well casted. From Kristen Wiig, Bill Hader, Martin Starr to Ryan Reynolds they all played their roles really well. Oh man, I could not get enough of Martin Starr almost every time he was on screen he just did something to make me laugh.  Before I go off and start telling you the whole story and ruin it all and over hype it,  I am going to stop now.

Go out and watch it on April 3.
