I just got back from watching The Wolverine. I have never found myself to be fan of Wolverine or the X-Men for that matter, however I was definately impressed and captivated with this movie. It was refreshing to see a “hero” who has demons, who shows vulnerablity, but at the same time has the strength and courage to do the right thing.
I dont know much about his story. Yet that did not stop me from enjoying the movie. I would definately watch it again, as well as recommend it to anyone that asks.
Watching The Wolverine got me thinking, why don’t we see demon struggling, ass kicking women with super hero powers on the big screen. A side note about me that I havent divulged yet. I am a long time Xena Warrior Princess fan. I know, I know, she doesnt have super powers. But she is strong, has character and tries to do the right thing. If only she had not come to the side of good, how far would she have gone. What if she has succumbed to Ares and all his requests to join him? Sure Callisto made a great adversary, but even she went good in the end…er on the other side.
I’d like to create a comic where the main character is female. Shes strong, very dedicated to her convictions and knows no limits. Sure she can be knocked down but will always always get up and be much more powerful than when she went down. Does she hold a grudge, eh not for long. This woman usually handles her issues right way. A grudge isnt necessary against a dead opponent.
My only hold back is I cannot draw. I want to get my creative juices flowing, hence my venture onto Blogster. I figure if I write everyday, I’ll become more comfortable.
I do read a lot. Not just comics, but books in general. There are so many great and inspiring characters out there. I can only imagine what I could do with one of my own. The title of my blog is collaborative bloggening for a reason. I want to collaborate with different people, either through my blog or on any creative projects having to do with writing. I may live in the Hollywood, LA area, but film is just not for me.
Here’s to letting the creativity flow!!
The Call. A movie I dismissed until last week when it arrived on Xbox video. This movie had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. My mind became entangled within the storyline. It makes you wonder, how do 911 answer folks handle being on the receiving end of life and death pleas for help. I realize this is just a movie, but is it?
At what point does the dispatcher have to separate their feelings from the victim and remain calm and in control so that they can save a life.
Granted Halle Berrys character too it one step too far that I don’t believe most real life 911 dispatchers would do. How far would you go to save a life? Do you know what it feels like to have caused someone’s death who was begging you for help. We take these 911 dispatchers for granted.
The Call was an excellent movie, and I’m still talking about it. See it. It’s not scary, it’s thought provoking. I actually thought the twist at the end was brilliant.
Share your thoughts.
The Man Who knew too much, by Alfred Hitchcock. The only movie he remade himself.
I’m watching it at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in LA.
If you ever have a chance to see a movie here, highly recommend.
Forget what you know about the book, the movie is good in its own right. I found World War Z to be a very action packed, quite realistic, engrossing movie. I have spent many hours watching movies about zombies, reading books about zombies, transformations, cures even a book on autopsies. And well quite frankly WWZ was right along with my assumptions.
What I know about a virus is that it needs a living host. This was addressed in this movie. Those who have some sort of immunity, why, how? Also was in this movie. The difference was their answers were all very plausible. I’d buy it.
Now, I might be biased with this, but I really do expect zombies to be slow, sloshing creatures, who can easily be out run. The zombies in WWZ were fast, strong and for some reason would crack their skulls on your windshield. Rather advanced for my taste, however noone really knows how “zombies” will be, if they ever do happen. All in all I really enjoyed this movie. There were definately some jump back scenes. I watched in 3d, which looked great.
4.5 blood drips out of 5!
