Dark Water

Posted by Mark

Dark WaterWhen I first saw the trailer for Dark Water a few months back I joked around saying it looked like a movie about bad plumbing. Well yesterday I watched the movie and believe it or not it IS a movie about bad plumbing! It was a terrible movie on many levels including the fact that it stared Jennifer Connelly who I can’t stand anymore after watching her “ass to ass” in Requiem for a Dream. The movie was very slow with very little happening and the ending was very disappointing. Half way through the movie I got bored and started to play Colin McRae on my PSP.. it was that bad. Even Nataly who loves scary movies found this one lame. The movie is bad and a waste of time, don’t watch it.

Fight Fight Fight!!

fight fight fight

Fuck my luck, I have been waiting all day for a decent shot of something and finally when it happens turns out my camera was set on manual focus! Me and Nat where standing at the traffic light which had 3 lanes. We were parked the third row middle. Suddenly a car pulls up beside us with two people in it. The passenger wearing local clothing gets out and goes to the car infront of him and starts punching the passenger there. The driver then follows him and starts kicking in the side windows of the car infront of him and smashing them. By then I had my camera out (it was on my side since I was shooting earlier) and I started taking pictures. Then I realized my camera was out of focus and wasnt focusing because it was set on manual. Suddenly the car that was getting attacked climbs the sidewalk, nearly runs over the guy in local clothing who was trying to hang on to the car, and then crosses the red light nearly hitting an oncoming car. The two attackers get back into their car and rush off in a high speed chase through traffic. Our light turned green so I tried to follow them but it was impossible since they were weaving in through heavy traffic dangerously and then they ran another red light. It was such a rush watching all this happen and it all happened so fast. Damn my luck for having my camera in manual focus. I am sure they would have been interesting pictures. The picture above was the only picture I was able to take after quickly putting my camera on autofocus again. You can see the local guy on the floor and the car jumping off the curb through traffic. You can also see where that car was parked.

Brazil Vs Kuwait

Posted by Mark

Nat just scored us 2 free tickets to the Brazil Vs Kuwait soccer game next month. I’ve always wanted to watch Kuwait play soccer live and this will be my first time. I would have rather watched Kuwait vs Saudi but this will have to do.

Evolt Redesign

Posted by Mark

I just realized that Evolt redesigned their website. I stopped checking the site in the summer because it wasn’t being updated due to the redesign but now 5 months later the site is back up but I really hate the new look. The old design looked way better in my opinion plus the articles were much easier to read. Luckily I am not the only one who hates their new design and many users have left their feedback on this issue. Hopefully they will read them and fix things up. [Link]

Movie Quickies

Posted by Mark

I watched a few movies this weekend, this is what I thought of them:

Constantine
Production quality was amazing. Story was boring. I still prefer The Prophecy over it.

Elf
Will Ferrel is very funny but I should have watched this during Christmas. The movie was cute, Nataly didn’t like it, thought it was to kiddish.

Creep
This movie started off great, really freaky and scary. Then 30 minutes before the end it turns into a crappy B movie. I don’t know how they managed to fuck up the movie like that, its very sad. The story took a weird turn and became very stupid.. really pissed me off.

Heights
A very nice movie, no action, no comedy, just a straight forward drama based in New York. The movie ended nicely also.

Kill Bill 2
After watching Kill Bill 2 I don’t understand why they divided the movie into two parts. Part two was pretty uneventful and I am sure they could have easily merged the two movies without losing any key parts. In any case, part 2 was boring, 2 fight scenes against 2 people with maybe 1 liter of blood and thats all.

Mysterious Skin
For some reason I thought this movie was going to be about aliens. It did start off like that but then somehow it turned into a very gay movie. By that I mean it literarily, the movie contained a lot of homosexuality and by the end of the movie you realize you just watched a lot of guy on guy blow jobs. The movie was good though, just be prepared for the gay stuff.

Hot Shots
I remember this movie being really funny when I first watched it in the early 90′s. Its either not as funny now or maybe I lost my sense of humor.
