Monday, August 28, 2006 at 6:12 PM Somewhat appropriately, I forgot to mention in my previous post that on both visits to the cinema last week I left things in the cinema.
Once is bad enough. Twice is very poor.
On Monday (Snakes On A Muthafuckin Plane) I had been given a lift to the cinema, but for some reason still brought my car keys with me.
I left my car keys in the cinema.
On Tuesday (A Scanner Darkly) it was a nice, warm evening, but for some reason I still brought my coat with me.
I left my coat in the cinema.
Luckily in both instances the nice people at the cinema had kept the items in lost property so on wandering into the cinema the next day in each case, I managed to get my items back.
Of course, being one of those big cinema chains there is no easy way to get in contact with a real person via phone... so I decided I'd ask if there was a lost property phone number.
I forgot to ask. Both times.
I think I might need more sleep...
Two Films I Heartily Recommend
Wednesday, August 23, 2006 at 10:04 AM 1) Snakes on a Plane
Massively hyped. Fan dictated. Clearly it was going to be the worst thing ever.
I saw this on Monday and I'm happy to say it's not. I hope my brother won't mind me quoting from a text message he sent me regarding the film, as this really does sum it all up:
So bad it's good? Snakes on a plane wins hands down. Breasts, violence, swearing, snakes, cliches and Samuel l Jackson. Muthafuckin yeah!
Also, it's got Keenan from Keenan and Kel in it. WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT, DAMNIT?
2) A Scanner Darkly
Based on the Phillip K. Dick novel of the same name (which I've not read so hey, it may be better/worse), this uses clever rotoscoping techniques (basically it's shot with real actors in (mostly) real locations, but "cartoonified" in post production) to mess around with perspectives / allow clever "trippy" effects.
I saw it yesterday. It's a real headfuck.
Great acting, crazy and twisting storyline, thought-provoking themes and mad-ass, "tripping on drugs" graphics.
I spent most of the film thinking "woah" and feeling a little tripped out / uneasy - but also intruiged, transfixed and entertained (there are a number of comedic sections amidst the drug-addled confusion).
It's really left some food for thought, made me appreciate just how fragile the human mind can be... and how drugs really can permanently fuck it up.
Squage Balls Is Here!
Tuesday, August 22, 2006 at 6:48 PM I'm so, so sorry.
It was funny in my head. Not entirely sure what happened but, sod it, I promised it'd be here and I'm sure you've been utterly desperate for it so, well, here it is.
THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD is not anything to do with this rubbish mp3
Did I mention I was sorry?
P.S. I love Coca Cola!
