This Looks Kind Of Good…*Collective Groan*

Posted in bad for your health, horror, movies, preview, supernatural with tags , , , on July 17, 2010 by ampzr

There were quite a few entries I wanted to post yesterday. Unfortunately I’m passing a kidney stone. I’m always saying I never want to have kids, but everyone says a kidney stone is worse than childbirth. Maybe I should give birth…nah still rather have the kidney stones even though they hurt like hell.

Anyway one thing I wanted to write about, but didn’t get the chance was the during the midnight showing of Inception I went to there was a trailer for a movie everyone seemed to be enjoying. It seemed suspenseful and spooky. That is until the entire theater groaned collectively when this…

showed up on screen. Everyone then proceeded to bust up laughing. I can only think though that the sigh happened because the trailer really did look good and we were all disappointed that the movie was made by M. Night Shyamalan. We wanted it to be good. I guess that brings me to a few questions. Has M. Night ruined his name so much that even if he makes something good no one will go see it? How many people out there are still rooting for him? Hoping for that next great movie? I know I’ve seen them all. I’ll probably continue to see them all. Even though me and my friend were so close to walking out of The Happening.

Well here’s the trailer for Shyamalan’s newest movie, Devil. Let me know what you think.

You Mustn’t Be Afraid To Dream A Little Bigger Darling: Inception

A break from the usual anime/manga news in-order to talk about Inception. I just got back from seeing it and I must say, absolutely fantastic! I was gripped the whole movie and I’m telling you all to go see it. The cast was phenomenal. The story was amazing. Really I can’t think of a bad thing to write. It makes me wish that I had the power to control my dreams. I often realize I’m dreaming while I’m in a dream, but as soon as I start to try and control that dream I wake up. If what they do in the movie were possible it would make things so fantastic and yet so terrifying by the prospects of what someone else could do to you in your dream or what you could end up doing to yourself. I don’t want to spoil anything so I leave it at that, but this is the must see movie so far this year. I think the must see movie for this whole year.

Watching this movie I couldn’t help but think of the statement I love to freak people out with. I love to ask people…

How do you know anything around you actually exists? The only person you know that actually has thoughts and a self is you. Everyone around you could be projections of your mind. You could really be sitting in a room somewhere and everything that’s happening to you right now might just be in your mind. You don’t know if I have thoughts and a self. So you don’t know if I really exist or if your mind made me.

I’ve freaked out a lot of my little brother’s friends by talking to them about that.

My personal side story to go along with this movie. First I have to say I live in basically two cities in one. Where the two meet is indistinguishable unless you’re really looking for the city sign. In fact it takes me about 15 minutes to get to the movie theater I went to even though it’s technically in a different city than mine. Why does any of this matter? Well due to storms today all the city street lights, stoplights, and any other light guiding your way while driving were out on my way to the movie. There is something eerily awesome about driving in a city with no lights. The even cooler part was passing through the intersection that separates my city from the other city and going from darkness into the usual city lights. It was all very surreal and dreamlike in it’s self.
