The Maine – I Wanna Love You

leave a comment »

Akon’s and Snoop Doggs ode to pleasing random women in clubs, I Wanna Love You, or rather, I Wanna Fuck You if they were being honest, was insanely good. But theres just too much bump and grind than I can tolerate. Its too crunk for my liking. Still, I did play that song about 2 million times in my Itunes.

Did I mention I like to get crunk? Of course, by crunk I mean CRUDE and DRUNK and FLUNKing all my classes.

Ehm. Now, I’ve found a replacement.

This band is called The Maine, and they were a part of the album Punk Goes Crunk, which was released back in April 2008. They’re so so good.

So, get up off your computer chairs, and love up on one another. This is the Maine, live at DeepRockDrive, enjoy!

21

or...Geeks Play Cards and Get Beaten Up.

21 is a movie about THE 6 MIT students who took Las Vegas by storm. They count cards, which is not illegal but apparently could get you beaten up, or shot, or at least denied entrance to most casinos in Vegas (casinos are private property so they have the right to admit or deny anyone and most casinos in Vegas are operated under one management).

This is the movie that will make you wish you’re in college and have the brains to do what they do. This movie features Jim Sturgess, Kevin Spacey, Lawrence Fishburne, Kate Bosworth and Aaron Yoo (that guy that plays Shia La Beouf’s friend in Disturbia). Im not crazy about the cast or the plot. This is based on a book, Bringing Down the House, which is based on a true story. Apparently, these guys go to Vegas every weekend, count cards at Blackjack, wear disguises, take home wads of cash and then be back in time for class in monday morning.

 I must admit I attempted to learn to card-count in Youtube. Aparently, I failed to even count past Ace.

Overall, this is another feel-good movie.

The Dark Knight

or..Eh Heh Heh Heh Eh

I dont even know where to start. This movie is longer than most of my lectures but I try to pay attention to every little detail. The Dark Knight is beautifully crafted and though some subplots seem unnecessary at first, they are character builders for the many different personas in the movie.

The Dark Knight (its so fierce it deserves to be italicized) is directed by Christopher Nolan, who directed Memento (which i LOVE). The movie has a dark outlook into it. Its not about being a superhero and saving the day, its about the complexities of human nature, the shades of grey.

While I drool over hot hot Christian Bale as Batman, but really, this movie is about Joker. Theres something very unsettling in the way Heath Ledger keeps licking his scar. The way he moves and looks and sets his hair, theres definite evil without having to speak a word. I guess this was entirely different from Jack Nicholson’s portrayal, which looked more like a mob boss playing with his victims before he shoots them in the face. Heath Ledger’s portrayals were, diabolical, his eyes empty and just plain psychotic.

You dont know what triggers a psycho, which makes it a lot more scarier.

if he shows up in your kid's birthday party, run.

Which, brings us to the point that Heath Ledger will be greatly missed.

This is, straight out the park dope:  5.0 out of 5.0.

Wanted

leave a comment »

or..ANgelina Jolie's Incredibly Long Arm

Wanted starts promising. It starts with awesome mind-bending bullet-through-the-sound-barrier technology they did for the Matrix. The bullet fired from miles away was bent, through the window, through the train, onto a human head. I was fed with the constant backsound of heartbeats that would turn Bruce Banner into Hulk.

Then Wanted shows Angelina Jolie, mother of 6, partner of Brad Pitt, kicking ass and shooting stuff.

Fuckin awesome, eh?

Then we are shown a group of assassins who kill whatever name comes up in the Loom of Fate.

Yes. The Loom of Fate.

No, it does not make Fruit of the Loom undies. It’s a mill machine that encode names in binary code into a fabric. 

How?? or an even better question, WHY???

There are more things to love about the movie than the absurd bits. I love Angelina in this movie. I usually like Morgan Freeman, but not this time. I love James McCavoy. I love the bullet through the head scenes. I love the high-adrenaline chases and the orientation beat-ups and the knife trainings.

Beware of the plot twist which goes something like, I AM YOUR FATHER!

Ha ha too late. It was written in the Loom of Fate
