''One character saved this movie from being a total disaster''
Disaster Movie: Over the course of one evening, an unsuspecting group of twenty-somethings find themselves bombarded by a series of natural disasters and catastrophic events.
I usually do not like these types of parodies (Scary movie 1-4 not included), but I watched this anyway because I was in a mood to watch a comedy. For the first 30 minutes I didnot laugh at all and I thought that this movie's title did not lie, it was a disaster. One character saved this movie from being a total disaster to not so bad, but still not good and it was the ''princess''. She was really funny and made me laugh, this movie was very predictable storywise and it ended like I had predicted, without it being really fun to watch from the start to the beginning.
The Purge: Anarchy
''Even if you do buy the concept,it does not mean that the movie will be good''
The Purge: Anarchy: A young couple works to survive on the streets after their car breaks down right as the annual purge commences.
I went to a preview screening of The Purge: Anarchy and I did not like the first one, but I was still curious about the second one, because of one thing, they are now taking it out on the streets and not only in the home of someone. The feeling of never being safe is set from the start and lasts until the very end, which is good. Many have argued about how stupid the idea of ''The Purge'' is and if you will not believe or by that, then you are going to have a bad time watching this film. It is crucial to believe that the society in a many is the way it is, just like in a sci-fi movie where you enter a new and different world and you have to accept how it looks like and how everything works, just like you have to buy the concept of The Purge to be able to appreciate the movie. Even if you do buy the concept,it does not mean that the movie will be good, but atleast you believe the world that these characters are living in.
Even though there were plenty of violence in this movie, I still felt that something was missing, something that would really make me cringe just thinking about it. The masks that some of The Purgers wore were very cool and gave the move a creepy feeling, whenever they were shown. The plot should have brought some unexpected turns, because most things were obvious. I liked this better than the first one, but it still does not stand out amongst other horrormovies this year to get a better grade.
Poland: Funland part 2
Here is part 2 of our day at the funland in Katowice.
We went on a boatride.
I have been terrified of going on rollercoasters for years and I went on this one twice in a row! First time I ever went on a rollercoaster with loops.
We went very high.
I really loved our day in the funland, it was one of the best days that I have had with Manuel, it was perfect.
Redecorating my movies
Since I moved back home, I have just stuffed my movies without any order on my shelves, but tonight I will start putting them in order. My room is so warm, so moving a few movies is causing me to sweat haha! These are the before pics. I will post the after pics in better light when I will be finished.
Jeepers Creepers 2
''I Think that the story about the Creeper is very interesting''
Jeepers Creepers 2: Set a few days after the original, a championship basketball team's bus is attacked by The Creeper, the winged, flesh-eating terror, on the last day of his 23-day feeding frenzy.
I have re-watched Jeepers Creepers 2 and it was not as bad as I remembered it. The look of the Creeper is very cool and all the different changes that happens to his face and body was nicely done. The kids were pretty stupid, but that did not really bother me so much, because I was nevr bored while watching this Movie and some scenes were well done, like that scene where the Creeper gets a long pipe through his eye and he is trying to take it out. I Think that the story about the Creeper is very interesting and I hope that the third one will be made soon.
City of the living dead Arrow bluray edition
I have ordered this awesome edition of Lucio Fulci's City of the living dead.
I will take more pics abd describe the contents when I will have it in my collection.
Dawn of the planet of the apes
''The first half of the movie was great''
Dawn of the planet of the apes: In the wake of a disaster that changed the world, the growing and genetically evolving apes find themselves at a critical point with the human race.
I was looking forward to seeing this movie, but I was somewhat dissapointed even though I really liked many parts of it. The first half of the movie was great, where we got to see the relatoionship between the apes and how they were living, even when the humans were introduced, it still worked. Where I was dissapointed was how things turned out in the second half of the movie and how obvious the plot would be. The apes were incredibly well done, they looked so real and I was amazed and fascinated. Ceasar had moe feelings and depth than any human character. If the plot had been better in the second half, Dawn of the planet of the apes would have gotten a higher grade.
Poland: Funland part 1
Hi everyone! ♥
We went to a Carnival/Funland in Poland, Katowice and it was fun.
Manou is by the entrance and is super excited!
We drank some beer and ate hotdogs with fries, delicious! I drank beer with raspberry juice in it and I loved it.
A very nice statue.
Some kissing by the waterslide.
Deliver us from evil
''This movie had some creepy moments, but I wishedfor more moments like those.''
Deliver us from evil: NY police officer Ralph Sarchie investigates a series of crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest, schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the possessions that are terrorizing their city.
I think that Eric Bana played his character very well and I understood his pain and frustration. I liked the cinematography in many scenes, especially in the possession scene which was very well done.The ending was missing something and did not satisfy me at all, it felt a bit light. This movie had some creepy moments, but I wishedfor more moments like those. There was a great scene with a woman in a mental hospital that managed to escape and the look on her face was so intense and creepy. I liked the movie, but with more creepy moments it could have gotten a better grade.
Poland day 1 part 2
Me and Manou went to the cinema in Poland and saw Hundraåringen som klev ut genom fönstret och försvann.
Det var riktigt kul att åka till Polen och se en svensk film på bio, men den gillade jag väldigt mycket.
Manou being cool while waiting to get into the cinema.
Poland day 1 part 1
Me and Manou went on vacation to Poland between 2/7-6/7.
We took the bus to Skavsta airport and watched a movie on the airplane. The trip went smoothly and we came to the hotel.
The Hotel was nice and cheap and the room was cozy, but we spend most of our days outside.
The first day we immediately went to a shoppingmall in Katowice, called Silesia. We went shopping and then ate at Jeff's. The food was huge and we could not finish both the appetizer and the main course haha, but it was delicious.
The Fault in our stars
''I like how they solved the texteing parts''
The Fault in our stars: Hazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.
I knew that this movie was about a girl named Hazel that suffers from cancer, but I did not know that I would have a hard time watching this. I have been through having a person die from cancer, so it was hard for me watching this movie, but it was a beautiful film and the relationship that evolved between the characters were great. Some of the dialogue might seem a bit cheesy, but the cancerparts really got to me and this film was more heavy emotionallt than I thought it would be. I like how they solved the texteing parts, because they texted eachother a lot and when someone got a text a bubble with the message would appear on the screen, instead of having the audience see the message on the phone all the time. I like movies that makes me feel different emotions, even if they make me really sad.
Muay Thai tuesday
Tuesdays and thursdays consists of Muay Thai and a lot of training. I almost manage to get to the club early to do some workout before Muay Thai. I usually shadowbox with weights, do some squats with kettlebells and some drills. This tuesday I did some Ground n pound drills and mostly squats with kettlebells. Yesterday we did some combinations on pads and after the session, I did two rounds of Muay Thai sparring.
Crystal Lake memories: The complete history of Friday the 13th
''I learned so much new stuff about the movies''
Crystal Lake memories, The complete history of Friday the 13th: Inspired by the critically-acclaimed book, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th takes viewers behind the mask on an epic journey into the making of the landmark horror franchise-from its humble beginnings in 1980 at a New Jersey summer camp to the blockbuster release of its 2009 "reboot." Combining hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photographs, film clips, outtakes, archival documents, conceptual art and behind-the-scenes footage, and featuring interviews with more than 150 cast and crew members spanning all twelve films and the television series, Crystal Lake Memories is the ultimate tribute to one of horror's most iconic and enduring franchises.
Yesterday I finished watching Crystal Lake memories and I loved it. I even thought that it was too short, it could have been longer because I enjoyed every minute of it. They talked about every movie from the series and most of the actors that were in the movies, were in this documentary, talking proudly about their roles. They talked a lot about how they made every wound and gory scene and that was awesome. It is a great documentary and I can not wait until I will have it in my collection. The time went by really fast and every fan of this series should see this documentary. I learned so much new stuff about the movies and I wanted to know more.
