A Clockwork Orange…no rating…

There are only so many movies that will seriously make you reflect on your life, and then the movie, on what you just watched, and then on your life again, and make you think about the morals that were just explored in that movie, and how it relates your life. All of these movies are viewed in your freshman year of college. Well there was Donnie Darko, Reqium, and now, A Clockwork Orange. A movie in which every character has their moral views put into question. It starts off with Alew and his group of old fellows, going out for a night of ultraviolence. He spoke strangly. Anyway, so they go out, beat up a hobo, get into a gang fight, and then rape a woman and beat his husband. The next day he “puts his crew in place” by showing them whos boss. That night, while trying another place to find a woman, He kills her and goes to jail.
Let me take a moment to tell you about Alex. He is a high schooler, lives with his parents. Has a social advisor. Likes “Ludwig Van”. Now he is sentenced to 14 years in prison. In 2, however, he is offered freedom as long as he “cooperates”. SO he goes through this procedure that basically brainwashes him so whenever he is presented with any violence, ie, beating, raping, and whatnot, he becomes horribly sick. When released, his parents kick him out, the hobo beats him, is friend betrays him, and people try to make him kill himself. Also, he cannot listen to The 9th Symphony, because it was played durring his treatment. Now, he really has no free will. So the question presented is: Is violence because of freewill better or worse that being good without freewill? See the movie, tell me what you think. At first you will most likely hate it (i did) but by the end, you will love it. Later

The Punisher- 8/10

I really enjoyed this movie. It was very entertaining. The actions scenes where he owned were great, but I really got into the movie especially when the family was being killed. This had some of the funniest, best deaths too. They were just funny, or you just said “wow”. However, there were some corny puns and basically the corny comic book stuff that was there because punisher was in fact a comic book. If you want to be entertained, go see it. If you want to see a film that will make you think and give you some higher meaning in life, you could maybe get one out of this movie. Later.

If you want peace, prepare for war.

Hell Boy- 7.8/10

Yes- I was pleasently surprised by the movie. I went in thinking it was over done, but didnt know to much about the comic. At first I thought it dealt to much with the paranormal and that kind of weird stuff. But hey, it worked for ghostbusters, right? This also dealt with religious stuff. What really made me like the movie was one of the last sceens. Myers, who in essence i guess was Hell Boy’s “partner” said, “Your Father GAVE you a choice.” Which could be taken a few different ways. The acting was decent. Selma Blair was Selma Blair. And some of the jokes were lame. Those one liners you usually find me saying. haha. But all in all the movie was good. There was this one Nazi guy was freakin nuts with these blades. He was pretty cool. O yeah, and it ended with Myers saying, “What makes a man a man?…not how he starts things, but the decision he makes to end them…” So see it if you want, but i wouldnt say its a MUST SEE. Later.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind- 10/10…

This movie was fucking amazing. You will get the gist of it from the trailer. But there is so much more to this movie. It is a movie that will make you reflect on what you just saw. So warning: This is not a movie for people who want to think. But the idea of going in and erasing someone from your memory is one that will make you think, whether you want to or not.

At first to some it might sound cool. Get rid of all the bad memories. But when you erase someone, you get rid of all the good ones too. And this movie makes the clear. You know one of the morals of the story right off the bat. But its the theme that I got out of this movie that will make you think. As well as the whole concept.

When more people see this movie, i will talk about it, so comment and tell me what you think. But I warn you: If you really enjoyed Bill and Ted’s excellet adventure for more than just a silly comedy, you will NOT like this movie. Most people will though. I dont want to give anything away or sway what people will think by mentioning something, so i will say no more. Go see it. NOW. Later

Donnie Darko….

The Name of the movie we just watched. It was good. And there is alot to think about. One of those movies where u gotta take a second look. Its about time travel, portholes, and there is some Christ imagery. Definatly alot to think about.
Other wise, I gave my speech today. I finally feel less overwhelmed. Like a burden was lifted. So what did I do once that burden was lifted? Played LOTR for GameCube. I love it. Legolas is the shit. Iwant to be an arrow shooting elf. hahah. Im on the second part of the battle at Helm’s Gate. O man. Its rough. but me and barry have almost beat the game. Well, techincally he did, but i didnt. He played it all day. Soon though.
[Random Thought]- I want to see timeline. The commercial just came on. Well Its bed time for me. Later.

Dear Roberta Sparrow, I have reached the end of your book and… there are so many things that I need to ask you. Sometimes I’m afraid of what you might tell me. Sometimes I’m afraid that you’ll tell me that this is not a work of fiction. I can only hope that the answers will come to me in my sleep. I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to. Donnie Darko
