So I am trying to list the fiction here and link to it.. and sort of.. systematise it. some-what..
And then I will be updating this specific page runningly as my stories grow.
Harry Potter stories;
none of these are in a continuity with each other, all separate stories which has nothing to do with each other.
Second chance a new choice
About second chance a new choice; This is my baby! my novel! proving that I am indeed capable of writing an entire book should I want to! the longest thing I ever wrote and the best thing!
starting out as guilty pleasure but grew into so much more as Severus Snape goes on a time travelling journey to completely change his past, but it isn't that simple.. things quickly starts going wrong.
About Missing moments; an additional story tied in with Second chance a new choice, showing scenes that we didn't actually see in "Second Chance." or sometimes we did but now we see it from another characters perspective. It was just written for my own scene, it's almost like a collection of cut scenes out of Second chance.
My future destiny
About my future destiny; A surprisingly dark story about time travel, where it's not the adult Severus going back in time, but the young boy Severus going ford in time, only to be frightened to death about what he is supposed to become.
We meet again, and yet nothing is the same
About We meet again; I don't believe Severus ever got to even as much as see Lily ever again after their graduation, even when he fought for her life doing the last year of the war. And here's what I think would maybe happen did they meet.. but it's not romantic pink or anything, it's pretty gloomy and sad. I am not so sure I like the twist ending myself, but something had to be done to end it :/
Other Potter Stories.
The Hogwarts Staff room
About the Hogwarts Staff room; probably my second favourite out of all of my potter stories (next after second chance.) scenes taking place exclusively inside of the Hogwarts staff room, showing conversation taking place among that colourful group which is the Hogwarts teachers, and reached the entire time span as the books, though in only short chapters, some amusing and some a little dark. Every day is a new day at the hogwarst staff room.
They are both in you
About they are both in you; yeah I know Remus Lupin were best buddie with Harry's dad and not Neville, doesn't chance that he must have known Neville dad though.. and well, it's just a great excuse for having the two kindest characters in the potter books get a conversation going.
Oh so it's you I am named after!
About, so it's you I am named after; It's just a little fun story of Albus Potter being cute as he finally meet the portraits of the his two name brothers which he was named after.
Doctor Who stories
Again, none of these stories are connected, other than may being referring to the show itself, but within my stories, there is no plan to be found, they are all one shots.
Time and time, again and again;
About Time and Time; Well.. we all secretly wish for a big Doctor clusterfuck where they all can meet each other.. and here it is.. every single eleven doctors stuck on each other for a few minutes because one of them had to go and fuck up the universe. each chapter taking place from a new doctor point of view, meant for fun.
The poor boy and the princess
About the poor boy and the pricness; set directly after cold blood.. the first time around Rory died.. shezz boy, stop dying all ready. Well, it's Amy mourning him without even knowing it, and how does she do that? by making up a tale.
About to live; Don't know about you.. but I find the thought of meeting your future self.. knowing you will one day, no matter what you do, turn into that.. kind of scary yet fascinating.. and here's the second doctor.. shortly glancing and the ninth.. and not liking it.
About One day; well.. I find the thought of the Doctor never checking up on Susan.. kind of odd.. I mean, yeas he is afraid of looking back but she is his legit grand daughter, so this is my take on what may have happened.
My imaginary friend by Amelia Pond
About My imaginary friend; I'll like to say.. I was the first one to write one of these! there's kind of a lot of them now, but it really was my own idea and mine was the first! What it basically is is Amelia writing an essay about her imaginary friend, and we then read what she wrote.. my idea dammit.
All those faces again and again;
About all those faces; this was a tribute written for the brigadier, made before Courtney died.. making such a tribute all the more worthwhile and just... sad..
It's about the very old retired and ill brigadier thinking back on all the times he met the doctor and all the different incarnations he have seen the doctor as.
Once I had blue eyes.
About Once I had blue eyes; My take on the difference between the classic doctor who and the new doctor who from an inside perspective.. from the doctors perspective.. as he ones again looses to the Daleks in the beginning of season five of the new series.
Darkwing Duck Stories!
All right now are we talking. this is the reason I really wanted to make a page.
To get some sense into the Darkwing stories.
Darkwing Stories are probably what I enjoy the most to write, it's just a great way for me to let loose, and all though you can read every single one of my stories as one shots.. I'd like to make a time line right here.. and the time line will include episodes from the show which matters.. such as the pilot and so one.. so lets get going!
These are the days of our lives; My Story
a kind of prologue feel of a story taking place way back long before Drake Mallard became Darkwing Duck, while he was still Drakey and only nine years old.
Exploring what it was in him that would ensure to make him a super-hero, also contains the first meeting between him and a certain witch, contains lots of cameos of mini versions of known characters.
Darkly Dawns; the television show.
The pilot to the Darkwing Duck television show where Darkwing for the first time meets Gosalyn and decides to adopt her.
The story of the unremarkable kid, called Honker; my story
takes place straight after Darkly Dawns as the Mallards moves into a new normal home, with new normal labours. takes place in the point of view of Honker, the kid next door who can't help but notice how very strange the Mallards behave.
Out of time; my story
Oh, typically Megavolt and Darkwing! now the two eternal nemesis's are stuck on each other as they hop scotch through different dimensions, never knowing where they are going to land next! It's a weird and strange nightmare.
Fongus Homungus; The television show.
Episode so central and important to the show for introducing the enchantress Morgana, Darkwings biggest love.. and luckely for him the feeling is mutual.. a shame she's a criminal huh..
Tonight the moon shines bright; my story
ahh, to be so madly in love! it just sucks when you can't trust your love interest though you want to! And now you probably should work together but it's so distracting! this story ties into "These are the days with of our lives." with certain plot points, and is kind of a part of a trilogy.
Tiff of the Titans; television show.
Introducing Gizmoduck, a rivalling superhero into Darkwings life.. and Darkwing hate the guy! they pretty much hate each other and they are to titan rivals to the last!
Ghoul of my dreams; The television show.
Morgana the beautiful enchanter is back... to commit a crime.. damn it! you naughty girl Morgana! stop it! fortunately it's heavily implied in the end that she has pretty much decided to turn good..
Love Alakazam; my story.
Oh you lucky devil Darkwing, Morgana did indeed turn good! and here is how she did it! all for you, you sir, are one lucky duck! to bad she doesn't get on to well with your alter ego Drake Mallard :/
I stole you with me home; my story
but lets not forget the other lady in Darkwings life, his most treasured little darling.. Gosalyn.. who suddenly a day.. realise she actually have kind of a question to ask her adopted father.
Just us Justice ducks; television episode.
Yayness, the biggest duck team-up you ever saw! It's just a fun two parter team up episode!
Time and Punishment; Television episode.
Gosalyn by mistake gets trapped in a time top with Megavolt and Quackerjack, and arrives at the future that would happen without her presence.. where Darkwing Duck.. had become Darkwarrior Duck.. a man without mercy always out for ultimate justice, turning him into an even bigger menace than any villain.
Pulp Heroes; My story
man.. having to deal with other heroes all is sure annoying! yet another rivaling superhero intrudes on Darkwings tuff, and guess what? He doesn't like this new-comer either! man it's to bad they are stuck inside of the city!
The Steerminator; Television episode.
Oh oh... the return of Darkwings greatest enemy.. Taurus Bulba.. just go check the episode out, it's ridicoulesly cool!
My daughter, her life; my story
A miracle have happened, a true blessing.. though.. it fells like a curse.. They found Gosalyns real parents which she can go home with now..
Or are they her parents....? plotting, team-up, meeting of new family members. lots of small details :)
I am Dark who..? ; my story
Return of Darkwarrior duck.. the dude is freaking bad-ass.. he ripped apart time and space to fight himself back, to set things as he deems right.. and well, terrorise the city a bit while he is at it.. Darkwing never having faced any-thing quite like this before grows nervouse.. and he figures, the menace needs to be fought in a completely different way.
The terror of Mr. Sandman; To be written.
every-body starts getting waking nightmares.. first small and not worth taking notice off.. but then they start growing.. and suddenly starts becoming a real problem as they enters the real world.. christ.. and Darkwing? will he be able to face his own greatest nightmare? even if he doesn't exactly know what that entails?
Night of the Godzilla Monsters; To be written.
Will tie in with "My Daughter, her life." where Chameleon and Tuskernini first meet and decided to strike up partnership by making a movie together, they make the movie.. but unfortunately everyone hated it and got major bad reviews, at ones the two plots revenge and Chamille uses her shapeshifting abilities to become the big movie monsters, crushing the city while Tuskernini sets the stage.. It's time for Darkwing to tell who's boss!
Visit to Duckburg; to be written.
The beginning of the Boom comics! the overtaking of Sain Canard by Quackerwers, Darkwing hanging up his cape.. and all going shit..
When we are not allowed to life;
a sort of prolouge to the BOOM comics, showing a little more what happened in the three years Drake Mallard wasn't Darkwing and the days that lead up to it all breaking loose ones again.
The Duck knight returns; Boom comics.
The first.. and kind of only Annual Boom comic.
This is the best I can be.
ties directly into the Annual Boom comic! exploring Clara and Quackerjacks relationship a bit further.
The rest of the Boom comics, and the ending of the Boom Comics!
My midnight Rose; To be written.
... Will be the last in my trilogy and tie into "These are the days of our lives." and "Tonight the moon shines bright."
In the Boom comics Morgana was lost as she chose to sacrifice herself to safe Darkwing, now Darkwing realise he had a way to get her back all along, using the items they got on their first adventures together, though it may become extremely risky, but.. it's worth it. And Darkwing Embarks on a journey to get her back no matter the cost.

Last year, when Merlin season 3 kicked off, I wrote a very long blog called "Merlin, the show of lost opportunities.)
Where I listed everything I felt needed to be fixed with that show!
Stuff on my list was.
"Move all ready! Go some-where!"
"Take yourself more seriously, don't be afraid of being a little darker."
"Stop using that fucking dragon!"
"Kill Uther, as much as he is a good interesting character, he's done his part now, and is keeping the entire showm from growing, he needs to go to allow the show to grow and stand on its own."
Erhh... all right three episodes into season four.. we are talking.
It happened.. it happened.. that happened to.. and.. wauw.. it happened..
My list have been fulfilled...
I don't know what the hell happened!? If there was a change in production staff or writing staff. or well.. but.. count me very happy.
This season kicked off with a genuinely scary two-parter. The way it was shot and pieced together, actually scared me.. a lot.
Episode 1 were more scary than episode 2 to be honest, but dammit.. it was so cool! And.. the resolution.. which is so strange for a Merlin episode, was not a complete re-set.. they had to pay for a solution.. dearly, there was consequences here..
And now episode three.. Spoilers I guess.. Yeas! Uther died! .... O.O
I actually didn't see it coming.. knowing how Merlin has been as a show up until, I kept exspecting him to pull through.. but he didn't...
I do think his death could have been handled better, in my perfect universe Uthers big mistakes would come back to hunt him, his ways are self destructive and a lot of people are out to get him.. he is the reason Morgana turned evil, so the King who wanted to destroy magic created the most powerful black witch ever. Now that's irony!
And well.. was it up to me, Morgana would physically have driven a dagger through his heart, that would be visual showdown right there.
Perhaps moments after he realised his mistakes, and then it's just to late.
But oh well, neither was his death terrible, he got to shine one last time to save his son.. and, his death has great bearing on the story in general, setting off a whole string of new situations, which is good.
For the first time ever.. this was an episode where the Dragon did not appear! Hurrah!
Merlin himself came up with the idea and realized his idea! now that's a real main character! and his idea back-fired here, no magical solution! Hurrah!
This is seriously taking the turn for the better, and well.. I just hope it keeps on going with a more firm arch where stuff actually happens and change things.. if the first three episodes were any indication.. this is going to be one hell of a season.
By the way, I love how they stopped saying "young boy." in the opening narration and instead says. "Young man." that is a true indicator that the show has grown out of its flimsy origins, nice one!
And.. Colin Morgan is not a boy any longer, so man am I glad they did that.

I am not even that big of a Star Wars fan.. I saw the movies as I grew up and liked them all right but was never that obsessed with them.
I litterately felt a sleep in Cinema doing "Phantom Menace." and was one of the lesser touched by how bad the other two were, hell, I was one of the few to see straight through them from day one, which I recieved a lot of flank, it was the emotionally detachment that enabled me to see through them, I still believe that.
But now as I have come prober deep into geek culture, I truly realise how important these movies are to a lot of people.
These movies, are as important to some people as Harry Potter is to me personally, and that makes them such important and valued movies in my book, which should be cared and treasured for, they are more than movies now. They are peoples memories and dreams.
So.. I have been one of the people more patient around George Lucas, but honestly.
Fuck it, Fuck it, fuck it!"
New Blue ray release of all of the six movies every-body!
With over fourty hours new exstra material!
But not the promised inclusion of the movies in their original unaltered state.
Nope! Star Wars fans can suck it that way.
Instead, and oh oh, oh they joy! there is all ready a list out now showing several of the alterations made.
And I am going to quote here. This is a quote:
Oh Nooooo! Vader’s ‘Jedi’ yell
Remember at the end of “Revenge of the Sith,” when we finally see the completion of Anakin Skywalker’s turn to the Dark Side, and he becomes Darth Vader? Then you probably recall how that incredible scene, something "Star Wars" fans had been waiting to see for years, was undercut by Vader’s instantly infamous “NOOOOOOOO!”
Guess what Lucas decided to add to the climactic moment in “Jedi” when Vader saves Luke from the Emperor? Uh-huh. The Sith Lord now also says ‘NOOOOOO!’ before he gives Palpatine the shaft and tosses him over the rail.Story: Darth Vader makes his fantasy football pick
The Internet nearly cracked in half when news of this change leaked. Either Lucas likes the continuity of having Vader bellow the same silly thing in the end film of both trilogies, or he just wanted to get under the skin of the segment of the fan base annoyed with all his tweaks. Mission accomplished, George.
Obi-Wan sounds different
No, Lucas didn’t overdub Sir Alec Guinness’ voice with Ewan McGregor’s, though considering how much "Star Wars" fame bothered the late Guinness, he may not have minded it.
Instead, Lucas has replaced the Dragon Krayt scream "old Ben Kenobi" uses to scare off the Sand People who attacked Luke and Threepio early on in “A New Hope.” It sounds completely different, and to be honest, not at all that bad. But the new audio also adds nothing to the scene, so ... why bother to change it? (One fan has created a video linking up audio of the new scream with the original clip.)
Yoda goes CGI
The Grand Master Jedi is getting a digital makeover. Instead of the puppet Yoda that was used in “The Phantom Menace,” Lucasfilm’s tech maestros have subbed in a fully computer-generated version of the greatest of all Jedi. Considering how puppet Yoda stood out in the CGI-scape of Episode One, this is a welcome change. Now if only they could have figured out a way to digitally scrub Jar Jar Binks from “The Phantom Menace.”
When you’re talking about a film franchise like "Star Wars," any unseen footage is a big deal. And the deleted scenes are the highlight of this set.
According to Hunt from Digital Bits, several of the deleted scenes from “A New Hope” showed up years ago in low-quality form on a CD-ROM called “Star Wars: Behind The Magic.” But most have never seen the light of day, until now.
“I’ve seen a few of them [on the Blu-ray] and they’re really exciting,” he said. “Major stuff ... things fans have been wanting to see for decades.”
Up to 45 scenes are included. One of the biggies is an alternate take on the scene early in “The Empire Strikes Back” where we first get a glimpse of the romantic tension between Han and Leia. Besides that, there is another deleted “Empire” scene involving Wampas and the rebel base on Hoth.Story: Han and Leia heat up in deleted 'Empire' scene
From “Return of the Jedi,” there is a sequence involving a sandstorm after Han’s rescue from Jabba’s palace.
The outtakes from “A New Hope” include one scene with Luke and Biggs, and another where Aunt Beru pours blue milk. Trivial? Yes. But weren’t you always curious what moisture farmers actually farmed?
The prequels have a number of extra scenes that haven’t been released before, too, but it’s the footage from the first three — material that’s been under lock and key for decades — that make this collection special.
“In this day and age, it's rare for any existing footage to be kept off the Internet for very long, whether it gets there via leaks or marketing campaigns,” said Rick Marshall, contributor for Movies.com and IFC.
FUCK THIS FUCKING RE-RELEASE AND TINKERING!
Even I, a none obsessive Star Wars person, am so mad because of this!
The drop in the cup for me though, must be Yoda be turned CGI!
excuse me. "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
Yoda is like my favourite thing in all of those movies! Frank Oz! creator and puppeteer of Fossie bear, Cookie monster, Miss Piggy, Bert.. and.. and... and.. they turned the beautiful, precious puppet... into fucking CGI..

I bloody did it! Me and Doug! Right there, in the same shot.
Wonderful man! absolutely wonderful, he so deserves every good thing that has happened and hopefully will happen to him.
And Here is my proof that I in fact can sing, I am not quite sure Doug believed me when I said I could... I play the Piano to just to put it in there, and i'll probably record it for a video at later time.
Monday, 5 September 2011
I've just been to Wien to meet Doug Walker, aka the Nostalgia critic and Noah Antwhiler A.K.A Spoony.
And I did! Also I met Benzai, Welshy and Sad Panda! all extraordinary nice guys.
Right now though I am sitting at Vienna airport and is just waiting.. and waiting... aaaand waiting..
Jesus am I tired! but oh my god was it worth it! I really did get to talk with these guys, just chilling out while relaxing, it was pretty damn sweet.
And I got some footage with me and Doug, which is going to be used in a video I am going to release in.. about two weeks I think... Hopefully it will be even sooner than that. We'll see.
It's going to be a review of a terrible movie called. "Mac and Me." also dubbed. "The product placement movie." of my film nerds.
Thursday, 1 September 2011
my second very serious attempt on doing this! I can honestly say I gave it my very best shot, but that I have an awful lot to learn, I honestly did not mean for this video to be this long! I was aiming at 20-25 minutes. Which I obviously failed, many points and even some jokes was left out doing the editing process as I realised how long the video was becoming!
any constructive feed-back would be deeply appreciated. Please enjoy.

But it just so happens this is a movie that from the beginning was a subject matter very dear to me, and handled it in a surprisingly tragic-ironic way. And hell, this is my blog, I can do what-ever the hell I want.
Oh, and something more mainstream done as Video review should be get released tomorrow, done better than my top ten video for sure, I am actually spending time on it! any feed back would be appreciated!
Well, Movie, just came home from it, and it really was from the beginning a movie very close to my own heart.
"Dirch Passer." is probably the most famous name in all of Denmark, despite him being dead for over 25 years, we all know who he was, we all know his face, his voice.. his acts. He is probably the funniest man who ever lived in Denmark, and here, two and a half decades later, the entire country of Denmark still laughs of the old filmed theatre sketches and tons of old movies, which they keep on re-running in television to this date.
He was my first inspiration and idol when I was a child, I early on learned to mimick his words and faces, my dad had an old LP with him singing, and I could stand in front of the player with a wig on acting out the comedy numbers. All of my life, his work has made me laugh and has inspired him. The entire Danish comedy culture has been influenced. That is how big he is. Still today.
So all this put aside... who was he? How was he as a person? Was he as energetic and funny off stage as on stage?... Hardly.
The biographic picture of Dirch Passer, so simple just called. "Dirch." to keep it informal, shows a more tragic picture.
A vulnerable insecure man, who just happens to have the gift, that all he needs to is to walk out on that stage, open his mouth, and people will laugh of him.
"There are people out there willing to give their life to be able to do what you do!" a theatre producers exclaims to Dirch in one of the many scenes in the movie. And he is quite right, I for all of my life have pursued to be able to do what Dirch Passer did, and of cause I can't yet. But Dirch just sits there, and he asks the good question several times. "Why?" he asks. "Why is it they like me so much?" and the people he asks sit stunned back, lacking an answer. "Well erh.. because... because..."
People see Dirch, they only need to watch his face, and they expect to laugh. How-ever, he is not that kind of man who can take just being happy as it come and take in strives, he's insecure, about himself and his work.
A particularly heart breaking scene, which is ripped out of reality, this is what really happened.
Dirch wanted to make a break out of all the comedy, trying to do something more serious, so he went for it, and decided to play Lenny in the classic theatre play. "Of mice and Men." by John Steinbeck.
Now, if you know anything about litterature, you should know. "Of Mice and men." it's very much a classic, and a very serious play. Lenny is the halfwitted tragic giant who can't control his own strength, it's a story to be taken very seriously.
Dirch plays Lenny, he re-hearses and as always is very nervous if he is good enough, finally it's opening night, and the moment he steps out on stage... people laugh and applaud by the sight of him. As he starts on his dialogue, people keep on laughing. And it continues until Dirch breaks together and starts crying ten minutes straight on the middle of the stage. And this really happened, it's a true story.
The movie shows the story of this insecure man, who has been handed this position and of cause goes with it, doing the best he can't, but is i'll equipped to deal with it, he has trouble saying no, taking far more plays and movies than should be allowed, in real life, his thirty years in the profession, he made over 200 movies and stage plays.. that's a lot. It would not be unusual for him to do a movie in the day time and then two plays in the evening driving from theatre from theatre. As a result the private life suffers, and though he doesn't mean to do bad, he almost jumps from wife to wife.
And it all ends up in Dirch, slowly but surely burning himself out, he could never say no, he could never cope, he resorted to the wrong sort of ways to solve his problem, which lead to his early death of heart failure, which happened. On stage in the middle of one if his shows, he fell down, and he died.. this is true.
The story really got to my head, and I shed tears three different places, perhaps it's because I all ready know of the real person, and his work always meant so much to me, he made me laugh.
The movie has nothing but love and respect for "Dirch Passer." and goes out of its way to be as true to the real him as humanly possible, which is probably also why the story could have been just a tiny bit tighter. well, compromising some facts to get a tighter story would have helped.
Yet, it's such a good looking movie! it re-creates so many scenes from the most classic Dirch Passer perfectly.
Nikolaj Lie Kaas, who plays Dirch is.... nothing short of absolutely amazing. He nails it! he doesn't just play Dirch, he is Dirch. The way he movies, his face mimick, the was he talks, that constant look of vulnerability in his eyes and awkwardness shyness in his behaviour. The Sketches perfectly re-told second for second and you could sometime have sworn it was Dirch it, it's the same!
Everybody else, also great casted! We don't have that many excellent big stars Danish actors, does we do have tends to be hijacked to the US, but they collected them anyhow here.. or perhaps it's the direction that looks so bloody good. It really looks like we are back in the sixties and move our way up to the early eighties, as supposed to. Having recently seen Captain America which also takes place in the sixties.. it's kind of amazing. "Dirch." Doesn't in any way have a budget coming as much as close to Cap America, and yet they pulled it off with the sets and looks of the sixties. (Dirch must have cost like 30,000 Dollars, that's the biggest budgets we deal with in this country)
I liked the movie, I am glad they handled Dirch passer so well. I don't think the movie will go on outside of the country, it's not exactly another contender for "Best foreign picture." at the Oscar's.. but, it is kind of a national treasure, the subject was treated with much love and caring, with a little fright of ever getting something wrong.
If you want to know what kind of man I grew up with, and who inspired my comedy acts the most.. check this movie out. It's definitely not a waste of time.

The hell??? o_O
Somehow that made me happy.. does this mean... does this mean new movie? I mean.. anything big enough to pull Christopher Lloyd out of retirement is good enough for me.
Not to mention pulling Robert Zemenckis, or how ever the hell you spell his last name, out of those stupid not at all good Capture motion animated movies he has been doing and back to what he did so great is invaluable!

And have been for well.. urh, since Monday.. I think.
Thus far, quite the adventure! Amazing adventure, something new and truly unique each day!
You know that saying people have about the air being completely different on different continents?
well as far as I can see it's completely true! everything is completely different from what I have ever seen before and from what I had imagined.
Well, my adventure started early all the way back in Denmark where they luggage system had broken down, so we couldn't put our luggage on the band but had to just leave it there on the floor for someone to pick up manually, together with all the other luggage! it was really the messy picture, even made the newspaper back home.
Then we got on the flight, and flew for seven hours straight to get to the dessert city "Doah" which is in the middle of India.
Now, I have never been in a dessert before! it was in the middle of the nigh, 3 AM Doah time... and still it was unbelievable hot! It was like stepping out in either an oven or Sauna. The dessert air really being it's own exsperience, but thankfully, we only stayed there for thirty minutes, otherwise I would have died! Then we flew for another seven hours all the way to "Hanoi" which is the capital of vietnam.
First impression.... holy crap! I've been to plenty of big cities in my life, London, Dublin, Glasgow, Copenhagen, Berlin, Copenhagen, Prague, Luxemborg, Rom.... But no, nothing compares to this.. at all, and god I wish I could post pictures from this computer, but well, the is a lend computer on a hotel, so it doesn't work like that.
The Scooters! Holy smoke is there a lot of Scooters!
Just to give an example, there are six million people all in all living in Hanoi... and there are 4 million scooters! and it shows!
You know all those white lines on the road you use to direct traffic with?
Yeah.... they don't use them here, you know such a thing as traffic light? well, the genuinely don't in this country. If I want to cross the street, there is no use waiting for people to stop, no sir, I just step right out and keep on walking then they should drive around me.. yeah I sort of prayed for my life the first couple of times, the scary thing now is that I have gotten used to it oO;
After one and a half day in Hanoi seeing lots and lots of stuff, I was driven out to Dragon Lash Lagoon...
Know the locations of "Pirates of the Caribbean 2" with the rocky icelands everywhere.. well, it looks like that.. but bigger. I am convinced I saw the world largest carven, we are talking Lord of the ring siezed here. And well, what I can gain from this is that a movie will never ever serve any justice to such locations, it was unbelievable. And me sitting on top of the luxury cruser while sipping to a perfectly made Mojto, it made me fell like a movie star or something, or at least very rich.
That's another thing, things are cheap down here, and well. now I understand why we white people can fell so important, when coming here, being white immediately equals 'being stinking rich'. which we are compared to most of the people in the country, Vietnam is one of the poorest countries in the world. So well, I am pretty much treated like a princess, I have the best of the best, is driven to hotels in air conditioned minibuses go on extraordinary restaurants, they pull up the chair for me, carry my luggage. The Viatnamese people are extraordinary service minded and it shows, a lot.
Oh the food, yummi lishius! I had nothing but really fresh food, and I mean fresh, you can taste how the ingredients have been bought and captured on the day, I have gotten at least some sea food each day and it's all so good! and so fresh.
Anyhow, after sleeping on the boat (And yep, I did swim in the lagoon, a real lagoon) I got wonderful sea food brunch, ingredients bought by the fisher men sailing around in the lagoon capturing stuff and then sailing around selling to the bigger boats, I went on back to Hanoi, saw water puppet theater, and ancient tradition and then took a nigh train up to this mountain city called Zapa, which almost borders to China, I am literately, 9 km away from China! I can see China from my hotel window!
There is a couple of native tripes up here but mostly it's a beautiful tourist city on the top of a mountain, so safe the view, one of the duller things, you can differently fell how the things are toned down from Vietnamese culture to appeal to tourist, when I could get french fries on a restaurant I knew something was totally wrong... compared to the other stuff that is.
But oh well, here I am, sitting on a freaking tropical mountain! Native tripes people trying to sell me tons of hand made stuff.
I am a very happy person, this has differently envocked a spark inside of me and I am just trying to take all of it in, it's differently a travel so huge and different that it will affect me for the rest of my life and all in all.
I am having the time of my life!

I fear my part as all of the females (Cosette, Eponine and Mme Thenadier.) is not as good as could have been, firstly I don't think my recording equipments is nearly as good as Firstenors' and secondly.
I can't explain it, I really am a life singer and have lots of life preformance exsperience, but suddenly as I stood recording this I started shaking and my voice started failing me, I tried over and over, spend hours on this and was never happy, I dried myself out of energy, and then I just became stubborn.. I am not entirely happy with this, but I know it's the best of the lot, especially Cosettes part have been messed up again and again, I am after all, an natural alto and far from being any kind of soprano :/
I really liked singing Mme though, and what it came down to there wasn't as much as capturing the pitch as just making sure the rythm were precisely the same as Firsttenors.
I am not sure I even got in the right place with all the voices in the finale, because it was extremely hard to disinquite the other voices! probably because it's the same man, it was hard!
In other words, the day after tomorrow I am headed for Vietnam, and am going to stay there for a total of 17 days.
That journey is sure to be nothing short of spectacular!
So, well. Ciao!
I'll see you in around three weeks with lots of pictures in incredible tales to tell!

I am not a Ghostbusters fan.
The movies have no nostalgia value for me, I didn't see them before I was nineteen and I became aware every other nerd on the net was absolutely nuts about them, finally I just went and bought them, saw them, and my reaction was just.
"that's an okay movie."
That's it, I don't hate it or anything, it's amusing in its own right, I just first saw fifteen years after it was released so I was not impressed by the effects, not impressed by the story, thought they were amusing and the idea original, but had seen funnier, I though it was well put together, but well.. If it was not because of the mundo huge geek worship of this franchise, I would probably have shelved that DVD and forgotten all about it. I didn't even see the television show as I grew up, something else many in geek culture seems to look back upon with adoration. It was just not syndicated in my country.
How-ever, I do recognise a good concept and good characters when I see them, and I know that is what Ghostbusters is.
And even I, a none fan, a none worshipper can't help but start drooling by the sight of these and the mere thought what could happen if some studio was to go through with such an idea.
Animated movie, duh! Of cause!
unfortunately, these pictures are not created by any studio, but by a fan who spend his evenings designing these (Somebody give him a job in a animations department.)
So no, they are not in any way official or indicates anything, but they are very beautiful and very awesome, it makes even me complete worked up on the idea, and I would really badly want to see that movie.
Well, there has been talk about a third movie in like decades for now, and there has both been a couple of moments where it's been like. "Sure, we'll have the original cast return so it's like an ala Dark Knight returns story of men who were ones great and still can be great, getting out of their pension to kick ass."
And there's been a couple of moments like. "It's going to be like the next generation of Ghostbusters with a new young cast acting as main characters and someone of the original four be the experienced trainer while the rest will have cameos"
And there's been instances of. "It's never going to happen kids, stop dreaming."
So no, nothing is sure, they keep and they keep talking about it, but to me, it doesn't seem like any-one believe that much in it at current.
Which is kind of silly, because even if such a movie was to suck, it would still earn a shit load of money. Ghostbusters seem to be in every single American geeks top ten of favorite movies of all time, and I am not even trying to crack a joke here, that is my genuine impression.

These are donated to me all the way from across the world from the united states, Donated because of some Darkwing Duck stories I wrote a while ago, and Irual who send them to me still insist I don't have to pay.. I am still as gobsmacked as ever! And they are beautiful! These comics are beautiful!
It's the bestest gift ever! I love them so much! I love them I love them I love them!

I have no idea whether to think it's sort of cool my hair is able to defy logic like this one a daily basis or if I should just go out and buy some styling products.. and I have most differently gained weight since my last video :/
If you got comment or a question, just ask I promise I'll answer.
...hm, maybe I should turn that into my trademark that my hair will always be a wild mess.
So honest thoughts.. I know I didn't go into how wild this movie is, but... should I keep on recording reviews like this or just write them?

Urh, why doesn't anything ever work for me?
It was yesterday I saw Pirates of the Caribbean on stranger tides, the first thing I did when I came home was smacking up a camera with the intention of just filming me making a review and then post it... but this temporarily computer wouldn't corporate with that, this morning I instead tried to record my review as in voice only.. neither Youtube nor Blogspot fancy posting that.. so I guess I will be writing.. again. Next time, I do believe it will be a filmed review though. That would be.. the Captain America Movie I think.
So Pirates of the Caribbean, let it be no secret that I adore this genre and I genuinely fell the is a lack of attention on it, the adventure Swushbuckler genre... unfortunately Pirates 3 did not succeed at being that and overdid it by a mile, becoming a muddle and no one knows what kind of movie it was supposed to be, how ever. This movie is right back on track again and does it right... mostly. It doesn't make the best of sense.. then again, neither the first movie which is still the best one of the lot.
Well, I know why most people are going to go in and watch this movie... how is Jack Sparrow this time around?
Let me be honest here, I adore his character in the first movie, but from that point of he changed.. The first movie was all about setting up that you can be a good man and a pirate, that Jack Sparrow is just that, he is the most honest of the lot.. just sometimes he doesn't tell the entire truth, only the partial but the truth none the less. as he said, "It's the honest ones you should watch out, because you never know when they are going to do something incredible stupid!" and then he does something incredible stupid X)
In the next movie.. he starts lying straight out of the back, and he is pictured as a dishonest character.. Jonnhy depp makes it work and he is at least enjoyable to watch... in the third movie.. he is hardly in it, and it's only barely he doesn't make his few appearences being obnoxiouse and annoying.. in my humble opinion, I don't even know what he does in that movie or why he is there.. other than comic relief.
In this movie, it's seventy percent Jack Sparrow doing cool shit and he does it really well, he is the definite star of the movie and he is never ever tiring, never ever obnoxious, he is just a whole lot of fun!
I like how in every movie they go out of the way to make Jack Sparrows introduction uniqe, grant and funny.. though there is no beating the first movie, the motherload of all funny introductions, though this one does it really really good as well, it was brilliant.
Actually, I even think the first ten or twenty minutes is the best of the entire movie, I love a good sword fight, I love it a lot, but there is something I love even more.. a good chase scene, and I don't mean stupid car chases, I mean on food chase scenes where you have to jump through buildings, swing in ropes, go over the roof tops, jump down some kind of whole.. yeah, that's the first twenty minutes of this movie! and he screws over the king of England and swings in a chandelier as well! He swung in a chandelier! YEAS! the cliché of all swushbuckler clichés and it's never ever going to get old or uncool! I am so happy he did that! And that's only the beginning of all the shit he did, and it tells what this movie is about... fun! it's fun. It doesn't make a whole lot of sense but neither the first one.
Again I will say it annoys me a bit how much they screw up Jack's character.. he isn't the same character as in the first movie and hasn't been in a long while, but... in the first one he was all about that committing a mutiny is the worst sort of crime you could ever do, even for a pirate and he would never ever stoop that love.. and, erh well.. he commits a mutiny in this movie.. it could have been justified really easy, that he is not on the ship of own free will and never swore legiens to the captain, but the writing never goes there. I mean it is cool seeing Sparrow staging a mutiny and all, and again, then he serves a vital part to the plot.. but.. oh it's a detail it's not that important. I just can't stress enough Jack Sparrow of the first movie and Jack Sparrow in the rest of the movies is not the same dude.. he is still funny and enjoyable as hell but he is not the same dude, or at least a couple of moral values have changed on the way.
Anyhow, Penelope Cruz is the lady... because every movie has to have "the lady." and the lady always have more balls than any of the guys, wops ass in a fight, is brash and is only too happy to face danger yet will at some point need saving.. this is every main lady in every movie, and that's also her.. though there is one fact that makes her different than other lead ladies... she's a rotten egg.. you don't know at ones, and what would normally happens is that we figure by the end.. she's not that bad she just needs love.. no, this woman is rotten to the core, and what Jack does with her in the end is well deserved.. even actually making her a potential main villain in any sequels. Cruz herself is hot as hell, beautiful.. a bit obnoxious as is the case with most female leads, but all around decent.. and I gotta get myself one of those pirate outfits! That is hot!
Geffory Rush is back as Barbossa.. well, and he is great, just as great as the first movie.. we have a new cursed Pirate Captain.. black beard, but dude, the last two was so hardcore that there is no beating that, I mean he is great, but they are no skeleton pirates and he is no David Jones.. perhaps it's time to get away from the cursed Pirate villains and try something else, I don't know what else you can do with it.
The adventure works, it's fun, enjoyable. And all around a funny ride.
Will there be a sequel? To take a guess, it's all in the hands of Johnny boy, if he signs up, there will be a sequel, if he doesn't... they could make another pirate movie but I doubt they would. bummer. You can make pirates movie without Sparrow, the genre existed for just as long as movies as a medium in itself.
And here is what I would really like from a sequel... seeing Jack Sparrow actually being a captain of his ship! I mean, he goes around calling himself captain and the joke is, he is never in the position as one.. he's been that twice, in the middle of the first movie when he hired a crew for the Inceptor.. which he lost, and in the end where he got the pearl which tied over the beginning of the second movie.. where he lost it.. I would love to see him command a crew for an entire movie so we can see why he calls himself Captain Jack Sparrow, that would be great.
Anyway, doesn't make much sense, isn't deep, but is differently great fun and there isn't made to many movies like this.. and there probably wont be in any near future, what comes closet is the musketeer movie that will be released at December and it looks like shit, it's totally up to Depp if there is going to be a sequel. (please sign up.)
If you liked the first movie, I am positive you will like this one to! if you like swushbuckler and supernatural adventure, it's a nice little trip. It isn't perfect in anyway (Why are the Spanish even in this movie?)
But it's really funny and made me laugh plus smiling constantly.

And now when I have seen it since I was eleven, of cause my enourmus curisousity had me watch the finale...
Erh well, there is both good and bad stuff to this.. I think it lingers a bit to much in the recycled monologues of "Leaving the past behind." "Don't forget the past." "look to the future." "Remember your past to face to future."
Yeah, that got old, real quick.
And dammit I had the feeling that someone was over abusing the fact that they had the actor who played Jonathan Kent back.. I mean, he is bloody god damn everywhere! despite his character being dead and they about that very fact, all the time. urgh, he's dead, and it was actually a quite good dead and impact on the series, so get rid all ready!
It was nice though that they managed to get Martha Kent back for the finale, I liked that detail.
And what this finale did was basically setting up. "Louise and Clark." if someone is familiar with that old superman show.. if not, you can check it out, it's great fun actually.
I loved the last five minutes after the climax where they completely embraced the utter campness of Superman, it made me smile, and that theme music from the movies playing over it, it made me sigh and think, dammit, this is what the show could have been. Like Doctor who, it could have been about the fun, adventure, and campness, but of cause not, this is America, we need to be so dark, gritty and realistic as humanly possible, even when the series we are making is about a dude in a cape who can move planets with his bare hands and stop bullets.. shezzz. Smile ones in a while! have fun with your own concept, it won't hurt you.
And dammit! Dammit dammit dammit, ten years, we have been waiting ten years to see Clark Kent in the suit.. And there is not as much as one frontal picture of the entire of him in it! What!? probably another attempt in trying to keep the "realistic tone."
God, what realistic tone? this show had evil clones, meteor rocks that gives ordinary people super powers, witches, old Indian prophecies and curses, villain toy makers, alien enemies, an arch nemesis that died around ten times and is still back in the finale (I like the fact they managed to get Luthor back for this though, as I set, it is setting up Superman quite well.)
And actually all in all, this show would have been so much more enjoyable had they embraced this campnes all along instead of trying to distance itself from it in a vague attempt to be "cool."
When are you ever going to learn? the most praised episode of the series is even the "Absolute Justice." two parter, which indeed looks like a comic book.. but life action. Featuring Stargirl, Hawkman and others looking like themselves in I am telling you, costumes that looks like they were taken directly out of the comics. That was the most camped episode ever created by Smallville, and it was also the coolest. That was way more memorable than a jerk in a orange "realistic." looking speedo calling himself Aquaman.. shezz.
Embrace the fun people! how hard can it be, I loved these last five minutes, simply loved it, it was totally embracing its own environment and ridiculousness and I Was thinking. Oh dammit! that's the series I want to watch, why can't I see that show?
Okay it would probably have flopped pretty quick due to it's camped tone... still made me smile all over.
All in all, it's actually a good seasons finale, finally everything is sat up for Superman, Clark.. after ten fucking years, flies on his own accord (Though he did levitate in the very fucking first episode ten years ago, took you long enough Clark.)
He got the suit... though we don't get to see him probably in it... dammit.
And I am willing to bet that the actor who plays Clark have just been waiting all these years to do the run shot, you know up in the rough, dressed as Clark kent, comes running towards the camera, the superman fanfare playing in the background, as he throws off his glasses, throws off his jacket and rips open the shirt to reveal the superman symbol underneath.
Yeas he does that, it's the very last scene in the episode, and it's awesome! the perfect way to end it, most differently.
If you never watched this show to begin with.. don't bother now, it's not that good. Watch the old cartoon from the nineties and the Justice League cartoon now you are add it, those are awesome, with well constructed story lines, amasing adventures and great characterization that doesn't have to try and be, but just is.
If you at some point saw Smallville, yeah it's nice to get it with.. also, how nice is it to see Clark and Louis actually be together for real by the end, no tipping around no secret keeping.
Naha, they are together, they are partners and that's that, and I like that! I like it a lot.
Fun ending, very fun.
Sunday, 8 May 2011
(Originally this episode were supposed to be aired as episode nine in the season, but someone moved it which explains the last scene inside of the Tardis.. It's purely a re-shoot to assure us we are there in the time line :/ )
God dammit I love this show! I love it so much, this is the only show in the universe where something like this could ever happen.
The Doctor ending up on a cursed pirate ship, come one, we all wanted to see it!
I love pirates as some now, I love the old classic movie tradition of Pirates, and I love Pirates of The Carribeen I, simply for being the perfect call back and homage to that old kind of adventure movies. I have long adored Doctor who for be the only show which is this kind of adventure show as you would have back in the thirties and fourties where it's all about the adventure, the lady and the fun.
There is not much to the episode, it's a nice little unwinder with cool pirates and a lot of funny situations, nothing any-one is meant to have fun of.
How-ever, what I kind of fell it prudent to talk about right now is Moffats influence at how Doctor who is being written as a show, because yeas, he is clearly an influence and a lot of writers look to him for their own episodes, this Episode obviously in particular.
Moffat have a lot of peculiar quibs and stills no one else have, certainly not Russel, and I can spot at least two major things in here which is so obviously a Steven Moffat inspired quirb (This is not bad, all artists bassically just take what they like the most and put their own spin on it, that's how it works, originality is well.. sorry, a lie.)
What Moffat does so wonderfully different from everyone else is that he unashameable writes "Fairy tales." and try to create a sheer fairytale enviroment in his stories. "The girl who waited." "The centurion who waited a thousand years." "The world which didn't have any stars." "The imaginary friend who promised to come back." "The libary build for a dying girl."
And he's villains are all fairy tale villains, the sort of villains who the earliest folk tales is all about explaining. "The enemy that only comes when you don't see them, when you have the back on them or blink." "The creatures who hides in the dark and in the shadows of the big woods." "The monsters in the corner of your eye who doesn't want you to see them, but you need to look." "The creature who is right there with you, in the room, only you can't really see them."
And this episode had an idea of it's own and beat Moffat to the punch, sorry Moffat, you can't have all of them. "The person on the other side of the mirror observing you, the world on the other side of the mirror."
This is merely a plot quirb in this episode, but there is potential for a lot more.. meh, what ever, it works.
The other obviouse Moffat Quirb incorparated is how they are all marked one by one and then taken by the sphiren but is fine somewhere else, the twist works though, so okay.
I can't help but wonder how much of an influence Moffat actually make with these fairytale episodes and running themes, going back to sheer basic and the "Fantastic." instead of "Cool."
That's a major different on him and RTD, RTD was all about trying to make this "Supercool." and Moffat is about making it. "Fantastic.".. I will always prefer Fantastic and magical, I honestly believe the trouble with all the childrens tely today exactly is that they are all about making it. "Hip and super cool." urhg.. :/
Anyhow, so many is a fan of this show right now and so many thinks it's the best show they ever seen, among all these young fans there is probably sitting a few future major writers. I am a writer.. not major, but a writer, and years, this inspires me a great deal. Moffat is making an impact on the future here, and it's different, its about the "Fantastic." and "Magical" it's about "the young girl who met a fantastic man who knew everything about her, and she ended up living for the days she was with him, only everytime they were together he would know her less and less, until at last one day, he wouldn't know her at all." and to take a guess though it hasn't been said out loud yet.. I bet it will at some point. "The girl who isn't afraid of falling because she had been promised that no matter when or where she fell, she would always be caught." .. I think that would explain another thing about Riversongs character, she jumps so much out of buildings only because she has absolut faith that the Doc will always catch her. about. "The loniest creatures on earth, because they can never see each other."
Stuff of fairy tales.
By the way.. I fell so sorry for Rory! I mean.. I know I said that I kind of wanted Amy to safe him soon so I could see why she was worthy of him, but dear god. How many times have this poor lad have to go through a near death exsperience? How many times must he stand around in the background looking completely useless? Though lord knows he tries, that's the second time he tried to fend something off with a broom stick.
I adore Rory, I like him so much, and I fell so sorry for him, he always end up with the short end of the deal. poor Rory.
See, this is why the Doctor in genneral only have one companion, because the other one end up standing there being useless or he will be the emotional weight of the story as it's him who is in danger and needs saving. Thus far, Rory had nothing to do in the season, god I hope that will somehow change in the future, I want him to succeed. He couldn't even keep his own last name after his wedding, nope it had to be Mr. Pond, god Rory. I hope the gods (meaning the writers) have mercy upon you soon.
And next week. Neil Garman episode everyone!
And for does who don't know who Neil Garman is.. dear lord people, go to the libary and pick up a book, I don't care which one of his book, just one of them.
Well, he is a fairytale and fantasy writer known for his stylish fairy tale books, just the kind I like. In media two of his books have become movies so far.
One is "Stardust." which is an amuzing fairy tale movie, not that ground breaking but a nice change of the norm of Fairy tales in Hollywood as it is ironic and funny but doesn't take the Dreamwork route of trying to be all cool and mordern and sarcastic and urgh.. stuff you I just had all to much of all ready, what's wrong with straight fairytales huh? There is only two places I can get such things nowadays, in Doctor who and with newly released Neil Garman material, jesus.
The other movie is the stop-motion animated "Coraline." which is simply and amazing movie and really shows what Garman is all about.
And more than that he is one of the only five writers who wrote the last season of "Babylon five." which is an awesome different kind of show any sci-fi geek should see.
He done some more tely work here and there, written a good chunk of books, some adult oriented some kids oriented but all with a ironic smirk above them and a strange sense of humour which I like.
So hell yeah am I look forward the next episode!
Saturday, 7 May 2011
And I don't even joke, I am dead seriouse, If you ever come across this game, burn it, burn it and shout at who-ever thought it was somehow a good idea, it's not. This game destroy lives.
I just came across another ass who thought it was a damn good idea to do this with his elementary school class and imediatly it brought back terrible school memories.
This game I am talking about takes the innocent form of a stack of cards.
The game is simple, the class sits in a circle and each one goes up and pick a card and each card would say something different such as.
"If I stranded on a island but could only take one person in this room with me, it would be you."
"Your clothing is cool."
and now hang on.
"You should learn to control your temper."
"You talk too much."
And so one, each card something new like this.
Now you may think the bad thing is getting one of the bad cards, no, that was picnic if you ask me, it hurt sure, but there is something much worse going on for the wrong people.
Now, I was never ever popular in school, pretty much bottom of the hacking order, I always hated this fucking game with a passion still do... I am actually shaking lightly just talking about.
And then imagine that I, the nerdy silent girl from the corner who gets picked on quite often, stands up in the middle of this circle, every-one in my glass looking at me, and I pull the card. "Sometimes your annoying."
Fuck! no matter who I give it to I know I am going to hear from it as soon as the bell rings, it reduced me to a wreck! Literately, stuff like this is scaring for children, I would never ever want to put another child, hell another person through this.
It's wrong of me to call this dude who thought it was a good idea an ass, cause he is not, it's well intended and all, but that doesn't stop it from being downright cruel.
Just don't do this. And if you ever come across someone who is planning something similar, stop that person! make that person see reason, just stop it!
I came through okay, I am now living as a happy self confident person, but I am also shaking thinking back at this and other people aren't so lucky to have great supporting caring parents, great friends who helped me grow so much, I am differently not the same person as I was when I was fifteen. Big interests I have always been able to disappear into which helped me move on and have a life outside of school. I am lucky with my life, it helps me grow and it never fails me.
Other kids are not, other kids can be destroyed by games like this, just don't let it happen, I beg of you.
Find out what you really don't need to know about me, The game is easy, there is a lot of. "I'm a ???" and I mark out the ones I actually am and you can read what that supposedly also makes me.

One hundred and twentytwo percent guilty Sofie pleasure.
Well, all though I try to hide it, I happen to be a girl, and there are romances I love to watch... as I first heard about this movie, Beastly, a modern interpretation of beauty and the beast happening in the big city between two high schoolers.. I was into it. I tried to convince myself that I wasn't but I was, I wanted to see the movie. Totally guilty.
And even worse, now that I've seen.. I really liked it.
Beastly is another movie trying to cash in on the major popularity of Twilight and is indeed yet again just a supernatural romance spending most of the time with two people falling in love and being.. well, romantic. ... I always thought Beauty and the beast was the most romantic tale in the entire world, I've seen lots of different interpretations of it and.. yeah I sort of like all of them, in each their way, some a pretty bad and yet they still have something.
And this, have at least three factors for it that works which is factors against Twilight.
1; The movie is about the romance and never tries to sell it as anything else, thus you will get what you paid for and can't be mad about that some sort of war plot that doesn't make any sense.
2; the characters are likeable and we get why we should care for them, the key part in any beauty and the beast adaptation is making the beast absolutely loveable, making the audience fall in love with the beast on the same time the heroine does. And it works here, we even like the heroine, she actually has personality is not vain and is not stupid in the least, the beast (Hunter) actually has to win her over, which he does wrong in the beginning as he tries to buy her with gifts, and she is just not that kind of girl, first as he simply starts being nice does she open up.
3; Chemistry! these two actors have chemistry, their characters are actually likeable, they are flawed, awkward, not afraid of laughing and look both alive and vibrant on screen, the most important aspect of this movie works. The romance works.
And.. that's all the movie exists for, all what it tries to be about, a self exploration about inner beauty, our place in the world and what love really is about it. And it works, that's all there is to it.
I blatantly admit this is as much a girls movie as it's ever going to be, and it's probably my biggest girly pleasure ever! I even adore the fairytale style there is over it, both in cinematography and soundtrack to how they just go with it that there is a witch among them.
I promise, I still don't like Twilight, you would never catch me watching Sex and the city, but this I like. It's what Twilight should have been.
God it's nice with a romance where I actually like both the man and the woman, often I only sort of like one of them while the other is simply to nice and cheesy. The beast is close here, but he is awkward enough to make it work.. and he has a great smile. That's another thing people should do more in Hollywood movies, smile! Chris Hemsworth smiled a lot as Thor and I totally fell in love with him, and not only for the body.. the guy playing the Beast smiles a lot and I bought it raw.
Well as I said, for girls, a little guilty pleasure not saying much and not doing much. Something for a very relaxing saturday with the girls, nothing more.
And I liked it. Now you can use that as a weapon against me for the rest of my life.
By the way, I just managed to get my hands on the book to, and it happens to be a very slim little book I just managed to read in the hour it takes for me to take the bus to work. Also I am a fast reader.
Well... the movie is better than the book... The book is pretty much shit and it's very obviouse that it's an inexsperienced young author who wrote it.
I like the issues the movie chooses to pick out that the book doesn't even mention, a moment that differently stood out to me in the movie is when the beast overhears his former friends talking about him.. the person he used to be, and as it turns out, none of them liked him, they were even intimidated by him and felt forced to act like jackasses to stay in his favour so they didn't have to become the bullied ones.. and it was so obviouse from his eyes that he didn't even realise this fact. Stories like this rings a lot truth to real high school life and was a great little moment in the movie, the book is far to busy being over the top cheesy, it's a poorly written poorly concieved novel with little to nothing going for it, and I would more compare it to does cheap monthly teenage horror novels I can buy in the local shop than an actual novel. The script really deviates only maintaining the actually good ideas.
So yeah.. for ones in my life I can say, don't bother with the book if you want to exsperience the tale, just watch the movie.

Just came back from watching "Thor"
Who would have thunk, that it's the that has nothing at all to do with vikings other than some borrowed names, but about these knights in an alien city flying around in colorful capes, wearing silly helmets and use massive weapons.. who was going to get a very firm structured three act shakesperian story piece, allowing it to just be a movie not pretending to be anything else.. a tale, something I have been looking for.. and some scenes indeed just smell of Shakesperian court intruqes and emotions, sometimes mixed up with some fighting. And who would have thought that... it all fits. It works! this movie is.. good. Really good.
It's not groundbreaking or anything, it doesn't give us something new, but it does give us something rare.
It's a movie not ashamed to admit.. that it's a movie and a fairytale, structured and told as such. having the fell of the good old days in the fourtish and how you would structure and adventure movie back then. It's unashamedly the kind of super-hero movie all other super-hero movies shy's a way from becoming.
It is.. fun. And unpretentious. Who would have thought that Shakespearian Kenneth Brannagh would be such a perfect fit for this? the only other major hollywood film his done.. "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein." is not a movie I fancy. but this one I enjoyed.
It's by no means flawless, but it's straightforward has a firm grounding in a three act plot and it's a lot of fun. I think the major flaw is that it never raises above any of this, it never even tries.. but on the other hand, that also turns into a strength and a nice change of pace.. also before the super duper awesome avengers movie comes out next year. It's nice just so sit back and relax the story.
Many worries have gone out that it's to complex.. not a problem, it's not even a tiny bit complex, it's straight forward. And it really is its own movie and not a set-up to the avengers. "SHEILD" place its own part in the movie, having an actual purpose and there is a one liner hint towards "Iron Man." and a one liner hints towards. "the Hulk." and that's it. small snacks for the nerds to feast on.
I have to admit.. I never ever liked the Marvel Thor.. as I said, it has nothing to do with the Norse mythology other than borrowing some names. But I liked the movie regardless.
Christ Hemworth who plays Thor.. is a keeper! I swear, he has the best smile in cinema history, it reaches all of his face and his eyes, he is just so likeable! and got a... really good body.. I am sort of in love..
He is perfect casted most differently, and he could without a problem carry the entire movie on his shoulders.
Now.. we all know what exactly is always the weak point in all of these superhero movies, without any exception.. the lady love. This time played by the lovely Nathalie Portman.. well, she is not annoying, she doesn't come off as a card board cut out and she is kind of likeable.. not that interesting, but just the mere fact that she doesn't annoy me instantly grant her "Above average leading lady in superhero movies." status. It's a shame though.. but honestly, I don't know either what to do to write strong female love interests. now that I write myself and am really getting into it.. you realize how hard this really is.. I got no solutions on this.
Loki... oh boy Loki.. again, this Loki never ever had anything to do with the original Norse mythology Loki.. and even if they didn't shared a name.. this Loki has always been my number one most hated arch nemesis of all time. Because all he seems to be is being the powerful god who never grew up and all of his motivations is "Daddy and big brother never appreciated me." emo issues.
And yeah.. that is also what he is in this movie.. yet strangely enough.. didn't come off as annoying as Loki usually is to me.. he is still a wining bastard but there is something more going on here. plus the actor is just perfect and very enjoyable.. I don't know if this is intentionally or not.. but I love the tale about how in the beginning of the movie Thor looks like someone who seriously needs to grow up and Loki is the voice of reason, differently looking like the grown up of the two. and by the end of the movie, Thor has grown up and suddenly Loki seems like the child who needs to grow up. That's clever structure, I like that.
All though, I don't see how Loki is ever going to make a comeback without appearing like a whiner :/
So as I said. I liked to movie, it isn't ground breaking and amazing, but it is fun and entertaining, it keeps a nice balance and a nice pace. Is a swell fantasy adventure not pretending to go out of scale, it's a great chance of pace.
Go give it a watch, it's cool.
