New muppets movie trailer..

hmm, this trailer tells me two things which were largely laking in the other more recent movies.. this movie seems to be, self aware and sarcastic.. knowing it's not supposed to be cool and not supposed to be grant, yet looks kind of nice.. call me, cautiously optimistic though not entirely buying that this will be good yet... I want it to be good, but I don't really dare hope... please lets just one of the muscial numbers being so good that everyone will go on and hum it for eternity.... just like in the olden days.

Pirates of The Carribbean on Stranger tides review

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.

Smallville finale review

Yeah well... the series is ten years old that means I was eleven when it started out, so don't fault me for having watched it now and then through the years, I mean, I grew up loving the supehero concept from a very early age, so excuse me.
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.

The curse of the black spot review

Ah that was nice, that was really nice to unwind, such a good idea to move this episode to here. I don't think I could have taken anything more serious than this at given moment in doctor who.

(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!

The worst game in the universe

This game I am going to enlighten you about, is evil.
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 pretty."
"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.

I'm ?????

Okay I was a bit bored, so what.

I'm a PERFECTIONIST so I MUST check everything ten times, them burst into tears at one mistake <-- that one happen to be very true though...

I DON'T LIKE to talk about my personal life so I MUST be having problems
I'm SCOTTISH so I MUST play the bagpipes and eat haggis.

Now let the rampage and furhter questioning begin...

Beastly movie review

Oh boy.
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.
