I don't have a whole lot to post about right now, but I figured I could share a little something!
Here's a listy thing of some of my favorite movies =D
These are in no particular order, just as they come to me.
He plays an MMORPG (i forget what it's called but it is a real game, and it looks awesome) and in the game he's a hero. He has a sorta girlfriend and everything. Then, she says she's going to take the train to come see him. And some bad stuff happens......
It's an absolutely compelling movie. I was expecting something depressing but it really made me feel happy =D The whole movie may have been
different if he had just attended an online high school.
Tampopo (japanese for Dandelion)- This is a movie that my dad showed us. Jake has an interest in opening up a ramen/sushi shop (how win is that??) and so this was really relevant. It's about a woman named Tampopo who aspires to be a ramen chef. She finds a teacher to help her. There are a lot of stories going on on the side. This movie is all about the role of food in japanese culture, the relation to food and sex, and all kinds of food stuff. AWESOME movie. Srs bzns. We rented this at Casa Video, which is a funky old independent movie rental place.
So she's exploring and eventually she goes into an old labyrinth on the property and adventure ensues.
Awesome movie, spanish with english subtitles and all that, very worth the watch.
and a lot of others, but those are at the top of the list.
Now here's a little extra something:
To list a few: The Yattering and Jack- my FAVORITE story, turned into a tales from the darkside episode which pretty much failed.
Rawhead Rex- awesome story, worst movie ever made. Bad. Bad. Bad. I demand a remake.
The Forbidden- You'll know this one as Candyman, which rocked hardcore.
The Last Illusion, which is the movie Lord of Illusions, and I actually didnt pay attention when we were watching this. So I can not judge, but the story was good.
The Body Politic is a movie called Quicksilver Highway, which I have not seen
The Book of Blood- VERY well done. Not my favorite, but good. The end of the movie is the reprise of the story, titled "On Jerusalem Street"
In production are Dread(I think, not sure), which was a super fucked up story, and Pig's Blood Blues, which is also thoroughly horrible.
I love these stories. Clive Barker is fucking win, and so are a lot of these movies.
I'm tired as fuck. Good night all and enjoy, maybe!
