It was the opposite of a shadow.

Which is as clear a definition as I can come up with for the soul.

Behold, her heart.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - 7/10. Snow White is beautiful. Everything looks like puppies. The best is the twenty minutes in to it, before Sleepy shows up and slows it down. What the fuck happened at the end?

And she fell in love.

Was it hard to do?

At any rate,

let us love for a while.

Bitch, I don't know your life.

Baby Mama - 6/10. Watchable, generic, occasional spouts.

If you wanna know who I am, watch the game.

Magic And Bird - 9/10. Fuuuuuuucking compelling. Two people who just sort of like each other because they see themselves in each other just enough to want to be them and to beat them.

Ain't found a way to kill me.

Terminator: Salvation - 6/10. Starring Moon Bloodgood, Jadagrace, and Common. Directed by McG. Sam Worthington has yet to show himself to be a good actor. Decent action. It's almost interesting, besides. It raises an interesting idea, of whether a crazy, extremist mother will raise a crazy, extremist son, and whether his potentially schizophrenic paranoia about his past being erased could endanger the rest of the humanity because 'this isn't how it's supposed to happen.'

That's probably reading in to it. It did not mean to say these things.

Better lives have been lived in the margins.

Hunger - 8/10. Are you still a martyr if no one cares or acknowledges you. Kind of the anti-Braveheart. A revolution surrounded more by piss and shit than speech and bluster. A very controlled movie. There's nothing there not meant to be seen, I guess to say. How the camera moves, but also in the emotions conveyed. So while fascinating to watch, when it comes time to hunger and die, I'm not sure I care.

I had reached back through time to the moment of creation.

I watched the birth of the cosmos.

The growth of knowledge about society,

which includes the understanding of history as the heart of culture, derives from itself an irreversible knowledge, which is expressed by the destruction of God.

Consequently, social life moves further,

leaving a state of 'having' and proceeding into a state of 'appearing;' namely the appearance of the image.

All that was once directly lived

has become mere representation.


a perspective on to it.

We're only going to please

those people who are like us.

When life gives you lemons,

don't take that shit, man, you don't know where it's been.

But no,

fuck you.

Oh, child.

Kick-Ass - 6.5/10. While it is a fun note, it is really just the one note. Attempts towards gravitas near the end head somewhere, but too late. Hit Girl.

Nothing to do

with anything.
Fletch - 4/10. Fletch sucks.

Our privilege

is to have perceived it as it moved.

Such single-minded


The soul

The equal distribution

Those who wish to shine a light upon darkness

must first be prepared to see.

Indistinguishable from magic.

Sherlock Holmes - 8/10. A TBS New Classic. Rachel McAdams ruins any scene she's in and poor and unnecessary CGI dampens the rest, but a otherwise a really fun movie that I will probably watch again on certain weekend afternoons of the year.

A splendid error,

which conforms better to the impulses of the soul.

The world is set apart

by different meanings for the same words.

The Secret of Kells - 6.5/10. One of the prettiest movies I've seen, somewhere between Genndy Tartakovsky, The Emperor's New Groove, and Peanuts. One of the more disappointing movies I've seen. It does a great job of building towards a Looming Threat and the Last Hope, but they come and go with no answers, and treats them as if it didn't know there would be any questions. It was talking to itself, bros. This is not a movie for Outsiders.

Zombieland - 6.5/10. I don't know. It's frantic and neurotic and it talks a lot for a movie with 5 people in it. I think its problem is that it tried to be about something. That's a problem to have.



Different schools

It's because people leave

They have no identities.

They are probes.

Comfortable enough in yourself

Clash of the Titans - 4/10. Everything looks stupid, the humans included and Ralph Fiennes especially. He's either the only one who realizes he's starring in trash or he's a dumb fuck. Doesn't follow its own logic, of magical flying horses being rode on a beach in service of our god-king. Uh. Sam Worthington is appropriately handsome. I think Hollywood likes him because Christian Bale's Batman voice is his normal speaking voice.
The Blind Side - 5/10. Black boy moves in with Miley Cyrus' parents. I try to be open-minded. It really is pretty bad.
How To Train Your Dragon - 8/10. It was unbelievably predictable and I fell for every minute of it. I am gay 4 movies.
Hot Tub Time Machine - 8/10. Real good.
Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li - 2/10. Monumental shit. A handful of recognizable character names placed on a faceless plot.
Don't Mess With The Zohan - 6.5/10. There were parts during it where I laughed. A completely amateurish quality to it which made it sort of joyous.


An American Tail - 6/10. Feivel is a sparkplug and the only one with any real weight to him. Everyone else seems like an introduction of character traits. Good songs, though.
Doubt - 7.5/10. Spoiler: Doubt becomes the weight of conviction, y'all.
Dragonbal Evolution - 3/10. It's not that I don't understand how this movie was made, it's that I don't understood how this movie continued to be made after someone looked at any more than a handful of scenes. Goku, in small bits during the first fifteen minutes, is dorky and fun.
Paranormal Activity - 8/10. The best words I can use to describe this are as 'masterfully done.' Flawed parts come in the end, but admirable in its simplicity and sheer... fucking... moviemaking.
Ghost Town - 5/10. Ricky Gervais makes movies from 1993.
A Serious Man - 7/10. It's kind of like 'Burn Without Reading' except the character in the center realizes how annoying and nonsensical everything around him is. Kind of seems like a man attached to a world that is easily and equally detached of him.
17 Again - 7.5/10. Hey, guys, I really enjoyed this. Between 'Hairspray' and the pictures of him I take to my hairdresser, I really do think Zac Efron's got a great deal of charm, and he absolutely throws himself into doing this thing when most everyone around him seems to have given up on it. According to my scoring system, this was better than 'The Hurt Locker.'
Death Race - 5/10. Great potential for fun, but too, uh, what do you call it. Shiny? I guess. Too shiny and serious for anyone to just go along with it or go all out for it. Too tough guy, I guess.


Your blessed trinity!

Hey, mama.

Yeah, boy.

You put question marks

over periods.

You still misspell

when you speak out loud.

Excessive violence

and some nudity.
