So, yeah it's been over a year since I've posted here. Yup. Well aside from being busy with my other blog I pretty much just forgot about this one. I just have the account to read my friend's LJ blogs...yep. 

That is all.

The Legend of 1900

Too often these days movies are contrived, predictable, a waste of time, money and the electricity it takes to watch them. That being said I must insist that everyone sees The Legend of 1900 right away. This movie was wonderful! It was made by Guiseppe Tornatore, who also made Cinema Paradiso. As always Tim Roth is wonderful, the story is actually original and the characters are interesting. It was worth every second and every watt. Go rent it, NOW.

Cup Noodles SOUPER MEAL!!!

good
Okay the long and the short of it is that I'm broke. I'm probably going to be broke for a while. So, imagine my many layers of excitement when, at Walgreen’s, I ran across the Cup Noodles Souper Meal. At a buck a pop this HUGE cup-o-noodles type meal is fan-fuckin-tastic! I enjoy items that are oversized or miniature. It’s amusing to say, "Look at me! I'm a giant eating these very small altoids." or, "Look at me! I'm the Incredible Shrinking Woman with my GIANT cup-o-noodles." 



It's quite possible that I'm just hungry and easily amused. But look how big this thing is!

I give Cup Noodles Souper Meal my highest rating if you happen to be poor and hungry and easily amused. Just don't read the nutrition information. Trust me.

Trent and I watched Grizzly Man recently. I'd heard about this movie (mostly from Trent) and from a few people who saw it in the theater and I thought I knew what I was in for. It was not at all what I expected. I really liked it.  Though it did leave me with that slightly creeped out feeling that looking at old crime scene photos or death portraits from the 1900's leaves me with. Not that there is much gore at all, in fact all the violence is merely implied. This, along with the way the director dealt with the audiotape of their deaths was handled really, really well. Any other director could have made it a gore fest, chocked full of gratuitous blood and guts the way other shockumentaries have done (I'm thinking Faces of Death and the like). 

Trent described it really well when he called it "haunting". It left me thinking about death, and the crudity of the human body after death. Timothy Treadwell's decent into madness is fascinating to watch, in a train wreck kind of way. I couldn't help but apply all my psych classes to the guy and I ended up feeling really sorry for him. 

My first reaction when hearing about the film and the way Tim died was, "Well duh! Can you say natural selection?!". The man certainly was asking for it, but it's harder to judge after seeing that movie. All the absolutely wonderful footage he got of the Alaskan wilderness made Timothy's hubris a bit more understandable.  The real tragedy is that his girlfriend dies too.  

I give it an A+. I highly recommend seeing this if you haven't already, just rent Pollyanna or something of the like to watch afterwards. 

An interesting article on the film:

Here I go. Adding more things to my to-do list. I could just cut and paste my other blog here but then the one (possibly two) people who even know I'm here already read that. So, this will be an experiment in being the Critical Critic or, Disgruntled Girl. Nothing fancy folks, just my reviews on books, games, movies, music, restaurants or anything else I feel the need to voice my opinion about. There, simple enough.
