roguem: (Made by TygerX (Wolf))

Got home last Friday evening, as you probably have noticed by now. Not feeling to sure about the exams, but there's nothing to do but wait, and possibly take them again.

Was pretty knackered when I finally got back home, my parents were at the neighbours house. [livejournal.com profile] isil80  (formerly Isen) and [livejournal.com profile] beluga  were waiting for me, only I didn't know they were in the house, so they jumped out and scared the begesus out of me. EVIL!! We just took it easy, saw Shaun of the Dead, which I love. It's bloody brilliant! And now that I discovered that Dylan Moran is the guy playing David, just made Black Books that much better. We saw the second season of Black Books, loved it. Have found that any episode where Bernard is making food or mixing something while going mental is responsible for some of the best moments on the show. After all that [livejournal.com profile] isil80 and [livejournal.com profile] beluga ended up sleeping over, we just talked crap and watched telly.

[livejournal.com profile] beluga  returned in the evening. We watched two episodes of Goodness Gracious Me,[livejournal.com profile] beluga  and I sat chatting, finally put on Sugar & Spice, it's a extremely simple movie, but I just love the concept of a bunch of cheerleaders robbing a bank. We ended the evening with watching Episode 9 of LOST. She stayed over again.

Sunday was an even lazier day,  if you can imagine that. Watched Plunkett & Macleane, which was kind of weird, but I liked it. We also saw the first three episodes of Coupling. I love that show. Geoff is SO funny. After [livejournal.com profile] beluga  left I was online, helped Isen ake a LiveJournal, she is now [livejournal.com profile] isil80 , as I have already mentioned.

Had a totally bizarre experience on Monday. Was in my car waiting for the light to turn green, when suddenly the car in front of me starts backing up. The guy obviously didn't bother to look back to check if he had any cars behind him because he drove right into me. Stupid git. I pushed my horn, what did the guy do, he drove into the next lane and away. There was no damage on my car, but nobody expects someone to back into them like that. If I'd had my wits about me I'd written down his licence plate and reported him.

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] beluga and I watched episodes 10-12 of LOST, have just gotten episode 13  and started working on nr. 14. The show is strangely addictive, even though there is a story line going on right now that is testing my patience. We also found out who did the trailer track for the Sin City trailer, They're called The Servant, and I'm liking their music. Cells is the song that's on the trailer.

Think those are the headlines for now. Not much exitement, but I'm home to relax, not go bungee jumping. :)

OH! Almost forgot Alan Cumming is coming to Collectormania in the April/May weekend! I'm gonna meet Nightcrawler! Yay!

Had a good day, not that I've done much. Just put out the icons for you guys, hope you like them, are in the previous post.

Have gotten positive reactions to the christmas presents I gave this year, which is very nice. :) Isen and [livejournal.com profile] beluga  loved their signed copies of "There and Back Again, an actors Tale" by Sean Astin. Knew Isen would love it, as she wanted the book, the sell for [livejournal.com profile] beluga  would be the signature. They were both really happy.

Still waiting for some other feedback, but that might have to wait until morning.

I got a lot of cool stuff this year. My parents got me a editing program and a web-camera for the computer, which rocks! So now I'll be editing my films like mad when I'm done with my exams in January, and get the moth off. :)

Got a headset with a microphone for the computer from aunt and uncle in Poland, also much needed.

Aunt in Germany got me a cute sweater, mittens and really soft scarf.

My cousin cave me a funky rock, that you put on this thingy, and it changes color. Very pretty, I like stuff like that.

[livejournal.com profile] beluga  got me a very nice top and the first two books in the LiveShip trilogy, muchly appreciated. Love Robin Hobb's writing, and need something to do in London after christmas since I only have one day of school a week. She also gave me some X2 clippings

Ivy got me the Keane - Hopes and Fears CD, very nice and calm music. She also gave me a framed picture of me holding her son, when he was only a month old. Really sweet.

Isen gave me a Glitter Lamp and Schindler's List  on DVD, actually never seen the entire film, so am looking forward to it.

Camelia gave me a Toblerone bar and the Van Helsing DVD. Gonna watch it soon.

I also got a fondue set from some acquaintances of my parents, very cool. Will test it out soon.

 

That's it for this year, very pleased. My parents loved the stuff I'd gotten them. I gave them two pressies each, my mom was worried that I'd spent too much. Silly. Might write more tomorrow, shold actually be focusing all my energy on the second essay this week, so we'll see how far I'll get tomorrow. :)

HAVE A NICE WEEK!

Got a christmas card from [livejournal.com profile] elvea_aure today, thank you very much!

Was shopping with Isen and [livejournal.com profile] beluga today, getting my parents christmas gifts. In hindsight it might have been better to go alone. I get stressed and snapish under conditions like that. Not good at all. Did get the gifts tho, and am finally finished with the christmas shopping.

Am still struggling with essays, it should be an easy thing to write about, but am completely stuck. And the prospect of having to write another before New Year isn't really tempting either. Ah, well. I really shouldn't complain, will get almost a month of free time when I've finished my exams. :)

The icons 've made for you guys are done... am holding them hostage until Christmas eve. :)

Snagged frm [livejournal.com profile] elvea_aure

I am The Emperor

The Emperor represents structure, order and regulation - forces to balance the free-flowing, lavish abundance of the Empress. He advocates a four-square world where trains are on time, games are played by rules, and commanding officers are respected. In chaotic situations, the Emperor can indicate the need for organization. Loose ends should be tied up, and wayward elements, harnessed. In situations that are already over-controlled, he suggests the confining effect of those constraints.

I'm leaving tomorrow, don't really want to. Right now, crawling behind the sofa and staying there until thursday sounds more tempting, but it'll pass.
Wish me luck Wednesday morning, I'm going to need it.

Had a quiet day today, packed my stuff and sorted some stuff.. Saw "Back to the Future, part 1". Been feeling a little nostalgic, so I just had to watch it, still get stressed at the end. Saw "Phone booth" with my dad. Mum started out watching it with us, but got bored. Dad, on the other hand, liked it.

Am bored right now, so guess what!? That's right, another me quiz, maybe you'll learn something new. Feel free to nab and use yourself. I've stolen this one from [livejournal.com profile] curbsideprophet. If you wanna know, go on to the madness )

...though barely.

Am exhausted... went to bed before 22.00 yesterday! Hello! I'm young, this shouldn't happen.
Don't really have too many days left at work now, so am looking forward to some downtime.

Was at the cinema with Isen on Thursday, saw "Ella Enchanted". Was a simple film, but very sweet. I like movies like this that mock fairy tales, but are still able to keep the fairy tale element. Will be a nice flick to have if I can't spend eight hours watching "The 10th Kingdom".

Got a card from [livejournal.com profile] beluga today, very nice to hear from her. Seems like she's doing great.

Mom and the kid left on Wednesday evening, mom's coming home in two days. Seems like she's had a good time as well.

Don't really know if I have much more to write, am working my butt off. Actually had a costumer from Australia today! Love that accent.

Van Helsing

May. 7th, 2004 12:36 pm
roguem: (X-Men - Logan X3 poster)

I finally got to see "Van Helsing" last night, and I honestly don't know what to think. There was stuff I liked, and there was stuff I didn't like... I might have to say that this is my least favorite Hugh Jackman film.
Stephen Sommers has come a long way since his "Huck Finn" years, and I think he's become a little to fond of CGI effects. Now, you would expect effects from a movie such as this, but at some times I felt they were overdone.

Anyways, I don't expect people to like it to be honest, Camelia hated it, and I could feel that through the entire movie. Benedicte who had joined us seemed to like it though. Thing is, I went to that movie expecting it to suck major quantities of ass, and therefore got better than I expected. Camelia expected it to be fun, and was therefore disappointed. I won't be watching this film with first-timers, if they want to watch it, they'll have to seen it before. I often notice if people don't like films while we're watching them, and I would actually like to see it again in piece and quiet, just to see if I get a different perspective.

I've always had problems with movies where stuff mainly happen in the dark. Even the days in this movie is dark, and that usually brings me down. This movie uses mostly gray and dark gray tones, and I can't really remember anything brighter than that.

I liked the premise of the movie, and the idea behind it, I just don't feel like they realized it as well as they could. It's good as a homage to the old movies, but I'm not sure it does them justice.

Hugh Jackman delivered a great performance, as always.

I really liked David Wenham's character, just things he said and did. He's comic relief and good at it.

Kate Beckinsale... seriously... she does good, but I don't really see the point in her character being a woman other than being a love interest for Van Helsing, and saying "Oh, my God" as often as possible.

Richard Roxburgh, I'm not really sure what to think of him as Dracula, I had a hard time buying it to be honest.

In some ways this movie reminds me of "LXG", but the difference is that "Van Helsing" will probably end up in my DVD collection. Basically because of Hugh Jackman and David Wenham, and the fact that there were some sequences I liked, and some of the dialog was good.

The character of Van Helsing has quite a few things in common with Wolverine, which is probably another reason why I'll end up buying it. I alway like Hugh Jackman in parts like that, am just sad that the movie wasn't better.

Of my friends, I expect Isen might find it enjoyable for some of the same reasons I did. [livejournal.com profile] beluga  on the other hand... I expect she won't like it. Only time will tell.
Camelia claims she liked "Underworld" better, me on the other hand, think "Van Helsing" is a work of art compared to "Underworld". I also like it better than "Spiderman" and "The Hulk". Basically the winning points for me is that I liked some of the characters and bits and pieces here and there basically.

If you're able to enjoy a movie just because of one actor, you probably will like it, I had two actors to keep me occupied, so I got into it.

Tell me what you think, because I'm still not a hundred percent sure. The jury inside my head is hung on this one.

 

Stuff from other reviews that I agree with. )

After reading ome of the reviews I see that some people are dissapionted by the ending, I liked it tho...
