I went to the cinema yesterday and saw The Dark Knight with beluga, P, laraneia and isil80.
Sadly we ended up almost at the last row in the back of the cinema, which makes it at bit easier to be distracted from the screen. Beluga and I had two brats sitting behind us,that loved to giggle, talk and kick the seats. To either side of us on our row there were people who pulled out their cell phones during the film, and there was one woman in front of me who seemed to have her phone out and was texting constantly throughout the film. I wanted to hand them all over to The Joker and let him have some fun with them.
Though all this was very distracting while watching the film, I have tried to gather my thoughts and here's some of them.

 Spoiler free.

I have to be honest, I'd expected to be bored out of my mind during this film. But everybody was talking about it, praising it, so I was curious. The trailer looked cool, but never impressed me much, so when I sat down in the cinema I just thought I was in for two hours of gore, mindless battles and men showing off their bodies.

It took a little while before I got into it. I was however at once liking the visual style of the film. It is a tricky thing to do, without claiming to much of the attention, but the color use worked well with the scenes, and I never found it distracting.

I was eventually fully drawn in to the story. Despite my usual lack of enjoyment for big battle scenes I enjoyed every one in this film. The fact that the battles were split up instead of being 45 straight minutes of battle was the main reason for that, also the way the battles were portrayed, slowed down for some parts, brutal in others, and some with narration. All filmmakers wanting to make a  movie featuring an epic-battle should watch this first and take notes, this is the way to do it!

The political side of the story kind of slowed things down, but I didn't mind as Queen Gorgo was such a strong character, and there was one scene where she had me cheering. 

All in all I was impressed by this film. Considering my expectations I was amazed. I'd recommend it to anybody, because it was awesome.

Weird evening, after my last post about finding the LP, I got ready for the cinema. Wanted to wash my hair as I was working tomorrow, and the movie started late. 
Anyway, when I've finished I get a call from Odd (my boss) saying I don't have to come in tomorrow, and if I could come to his offices on Saturday to help out with some stuff, getting it cleared up a bit. I said yes. It's just a bit of tidying, should be okay. Anyway he said he was getting an office ready for the finance guy, one for himself, and get this; one maybe for me! All I've been expecting was a chair, maybe my own desk, not my own office. Still very cool, and shows that things are going forward with the movie. Yay.
Then comes the not so great, I have an hour left before leaving for the cinema, and my dad gets a call. When he's done he asks us; 'How do you feel about moving to the new flat on the 10th of December?' I'm not very happy about it... We were supposed to move in on January 10th. My mom gets all excited, and basically says 'Yes!' before my brain has even processed the information. I say okay, but also that I'm not happy about it, and because I'm a fucking weakling I start crying. I have no idea why I started crying, really. My dad hugs me and my mom worries a bit. I just say it's silly, and my dad says that it's not silly to have feelings. I mean, I was looking forward to a final christmas here, but that's not reason to start crying, hate it when I get like this. Was kind of suprised about how worried they got at my little outburst to be honest. Not important though.
They know I'm not thrilled about the move in general, and now they know that I'm really not happy about having the actual date moved up as well. I've told them that I'm not to crazy about moving, but that I do understand why they're doing this. I'm not blaming them, but I can't help the way I feel either. I've gotten the impression that my mom feels guilty about it, she's trying to buy me off by promising me one of those expensive video iPod thinges... not an iPod, but one of those things that's like an iPod. Not gonna lie, I really want one, but wouldn't feel right like this. 
Bah, hate feeling like this... must focus on the positive. At least this will mean a nice quiet christmas.

Sorry guys, you must be so sick of my ramblings about this by now. So now on to happier things again:

I went to the cinema with isil80. We saw 'Scoop'. Now, normally I would never pay to watch a Woody Allen, especially one he stars in, as the guy annoyes the living shit out of me. And I've never been a big fan of  Scarlett Johansson either for some reason. But this was also a film starring Hugh Jackman, so I just had to give it the benefit of the doubt. 
It's not a great film, but I enjoyed it very much. I laughed, I was stressed, I was hooked on Hugh's accent. Must say I was jealous of Scarlett on more than one occation, but lets not go there. 

I read somewhere that it was a letdown for Woody fans, which probably explains why I enjoyed it. I thought it was funny and chariming, everybody did a good job and my annoyance at Woody's fidgeting was rather low. Hugh seemed so incredibly at ease with his character that I could almost believe that's how he is in everyday life. It was kind of hypnotic to watch. (for lack of a better word). All in all I found it very enjoyable, and it will end up in my DVD collection at some point, that much I can guarantee.

Think die hard "Deadwood"  fans would have enjoyed it as well, as Ian McShane had one of the main parts as well. It was also very nice to see Anthony Head again, even though it was only at a very short scene at the end of the film.

Also it looked to have been mainly shot in the area I lived when I was in London. Gotta admit it was distracting at times, but also very fun to see some of my old scenery again. There was actually a scene in the film at the only pub in Holland Park that I could stand; The Mitre, very low on smoke. That bit made me squee. They were mainly in the Holland Park and surrounding areas for the scenes in the city.


That's it for now. Might have to think about getting some sleep soon. 
Tomorrow will be good:
Some of my online auctions are closing, and so far a few of them have fetched well over the asking price, which makes me very happy.
I have the day off, and can get some stuff done.
And most importantly: IT's "Supernatural" day! Yay. :D

We sold the house. No other bids came in this morining, but by the time I finished the post this morning I was pretty sure that's how it would go. So as of 12:00 today our house is off the market and the paper work will proceed. The guy who bought the house rang out door bell at 12:02 asking if he could take a look around again. It was a Vietnameese man with a wife and four kids, so they need the space. He said that they had been looking for a place for a year, and the second he had stepped into this house he'd known that this was his new home. 
Can't blame him, that's pretty much how we felt when we wtepped into this house for the first time. 
We'll be moving out sometime in the middle of January. So at least I'll get a final christmas here, very pleased about that.

I need new icons... think I'll delete all the ones I have and start fresh. 

[profile] isil80 came by in the afternoon. We just took it easy, my mom isn't feeling to good so we sat with her for a while just talking. Afterwards we headed up to my room and watched 'X-Men: The Last Stand'. I've had time to think about the film, and though it doesn't come close to the greatness of the first two I refuse to blame Brett Ratner for that. It's still a fun ride, and it's tried to hold on to what the first two did, it just doesn't do it as nicely as they did. Hard to explain. I know this film will end up in my DVD collection at some point, but there's no rush.
After the movie we just sat talking, was very nice. We watched two episodes of "Angel" I wanted to show her Joss Whedon as Numfar, but we ended up watching two eps; "Through the Looking Glass"  & "There's No Place Like Plrtz Glrb". Was fun. I love Numfar and his dance, so brilliant.

After [profile] isil80 left I just took it easy, been going through my flist. 

Tomorrow it looks like there'll be a trip to the cinema with [personal profile] beluga and [profile] isil80, to see 'Little Miss Sunshine'. Will be much fun.
And let's not forget; I'll finally get to see episode 2 of "Supernatural".

Had a good weekend. 
It's so nice to have my aunt here for a visit, sadly she'll be leaving on Wednesday. She might be coming back in december to celebrate christmas with us. I hope so, it would be a very nice way to spend our last christmas in this house. 

My parents have set our time to move out to no later than february 2007, so we have to find a place by then. We'll be showing the house to potential buyers sometime Wednesday afternoon. Not exactly looking forward to it, but we'll most likely not be here, so I don't have to watch.

On Saturday we looked at an apartment. It was very nice, even I have to admit that. I would get a similar setup to what I have now, so I really can't complain in any way. The only negative thing about it is that it's a way out of the city and it won't be that easy for [personal profile] beluga and [profile] isil80 just to pop by. Well, figure something out though. No reason to worry now anyway, if we want the place we'll have to wait a while. We kind of got a viewing before it's out on the market, so we can't do anything until they've had an official showing. It is a great apartment though.

Yesterday I went to the cinema with [profile] isil80, needed a break from some pre-editing work I was doing. We wathed 'The Devil Wears Prada'. It was an okay film, nothing spectacular. Slow paced, which isn't really a problem if you have a strong story, sadly it wasn't. I think this should have either focused more on the comedy aspect of it, or tried to get more serious and given a better picture of the people involved. It kind of lies somewhere in the middle and never fully achieves what it could have. That said it was a nice film, and I was very happy to be back at the cinema. Fun to get out for a little bit.

Have gotten some time off from work, the students will be out shooting their films so there's nothing for me to do.

I haven't got much more to tell, so I'll continue my norwegian artist pimping, some rock this time.

I've just finished watching 'Serenity'. It was my fourth time watching it... yes, I know. Only four. *is ashamed*

Can you believe that a year ago we were all crazy with anticipation for this film? I can't even remember how many times I watched the trailer, or how many spoiler posts I hid from. When I went to the cinema to see this, hopes were high. And I was not dissapointed, I laughed, I cried (which is very rare for me), and just loved this film. 

For those of you on my flist that haven't seen it, you really should. I've yet to meet someone who didn't like it.

The movie is a work of art, a labour of love. Joss Whedon put his heart and soul into this film, and it's one of the most well scripted, well shot and just visually beautiful films that has been released in recent years.
There's a reason it's on my top 5 list. ;)

I went to see 'Slither' on thursday evening, so I figured I'd write a little bit about it. 



Before I begin the official review, I have to tell you in what setting I saw this film. First of all I headed to the cinema alone, because none of the people I had asked wanted to go, or were busy with various school work. I'm not a big fan of watching scary movies at the cinema on my own, but figured this is part comedy and I managed 'The Sixth Sense ' on my own, so I'd be okay. It was also the last day it was showing at an ok time of the day (19:10), so I headed down to the cinema. I arrived a little after 19:10 and the guy at the counter thought I wanted a ticket to the next screening, but I got a ticket for this one. Now this made me think that there would be loads of people already in the theatre. What do I discover when I get there? It's empty, I am the only one there! This throws me a bit, but I remembered I was alone at the beginning of 'Hooligans', so other people would surely be coming. I find a seat, and surely a guy comes in during the trailers, but he leaves when they're over.
Yup, that's right folks, I was going to watch this all by myself!
Now, this is something that would usually make me very happy, not that it's ever happened before, but this was after all a scary movie. I'm not a whimp really, and I know this was a comedy as well, but come on! So yeah, for about the first ten minutes of the film I was a bit tense, but then I relaxed and figured I'd enjoy myself as I had the freedom to scream and cringe as much as I wanted without looking a fool. So that's what I did. ;)

I'm going to the cinema with Dawid tomorrow, and can't decide between 'The Inside Man' and 'V for Vendetta'. I've seen 'V for Vendetta', but thought it needed a second viewing for me to make my mind up. I also want to see 'The Inside man'. The ticket prices here are really cheap, so seing 'V for Vendetta' again wouldn't really cost me that much, and I could catch 'The Inside Man' at home for full price.
I dunno... anyone seen both and wanna give me a tip?

Had a very calm weekend. After my little shopping trip on Friday I watched an episode of 'The Pretender'. I loved that show when I was younger, so I was very happy to discover that it had been released on DVD. Am finisihing season one soon, so it's about time to put in an order for season two.
[livejournal.com profile] beluga  came right before I was finished with the episode. I finished the episode, and she showed me a Supernatural vid she made, ( Laugh, I Nearly Died ). She's always been awsome with creative stuff, so I love it when she does something like this, and when she writes stories.

We ended up watching 'Scarecrow'. Yay! Not my favourite 'Supernatural' episode, but I enjoyed it. It was interesting to see how the brothers managed on their own, how they interact with people and  also how Dean handled a job on his own. We know he's done it before, but now we actually got to see it. He seemed a bit lost, but I think that was more because he missed Sam, than him not being able to manage on his own. It was also a very quotable episode, "Dude, you fugly" are among my faves. Oh! And the link to norse mythology! Very cool.
After that we watched 'Devour', starring Jensen Ackles, Shannyn Sossamon and Dominique Swain. It wasn't very good, I liked the idea, and it started out good enough. I've seen a similar idea handled in some crime show... they did it better. This film had a good enough buildup, but the stuff that worked just fell appart towards the end. The end was just a 'what the fuck?' moment.
When we finished the movie, we watched 'Scarecrow' again, since it had been so long since the last time we saw it. ;p

Saturday was a calm day. Just took it easy, surfing the net and checking out some stuff. [livejournal.com profile] isil80 came an joined us in the afternoon. We showed her 'Scarecrow', she's not as big a fan as [livejournal.com profile] beluga and me, but she likes it.
Mom made lasagna, so very jummy.
After dinner we watched 'Clan of the Cavebear'. It was ok, not overly engaging. I haven't read the books, so I might be missing some stuff. I just didn't feel like there was any big development. Always enjoy a strong female character though...
We just relaxed and talked. [livejournal.com profile] beluga messed around with her LJ layout for most of the evening.


Sunday I was wasted most of the day, felt  like a zombie. [livejournal.com profile] beluga and I. just relaxed, watched a little TV and hung out online. She finished another Supernatural music video. ( ..History have a way of repeating itself... ).

We were supposed to go to the cinema in the evening, but let it be, none of us were very up for it. Might go on Wednesday instead.

roguem: (Supernatural)

Had a very calm weekend. After my little shopping trip on Friday I watched an episode of 'The Pretender'. I loved that show when I was younger, so I was very happy to discover that it had been released on DVD. Am finisihing season one soon, so it's about time to put in an order for season two.
[livejournal.com profile] beluga  came right before I was finished with the episode. I finished the episode, and she showed me a Supernatural vid she made, ( Laugh, I Nearly Died ). She's always been awsome with creative stuff, so I love it when she does something like this, and when she writes stories.

We ended up watching 'Scarecrow'. Yay! Not my favourite 'Supernatural' episode, but I enjoyed it. It was interesting to see how the brothers managed on their own, how they interact with people and  also how Dean handled a job on his own. We know he's done it before, but now we actually got to see it. He seemed a bit lost, but I think that was more because he missed Sam, than him not being able to manage on his own. It was also a very quotable episode, "Dude, you fugly" are among my faves. Oh! And the link to norse mythology! Very cool.
