What do you people think about Planet Terror?

I don't think a movie ever made me feel SO confused about what I should feel (or what I actually feel) about it.

Want to ask an important question

Just a really, really (purposely) bad movie; or a surprisingly smart action-movies parody?

(Or maybe I'm just biased because I drooled myself off with that Michelle Rodriguez's scene. If you are wondering what scene I'm talking about is because you haven't seen it.)

Some unfortunate things happened and I got informed just now. I don't feel like much right now.

I saw Rosario Tijeras earlier today, and it really, really impressed me though.

Oh, people look what [personal profile] beyourwings gave me:

Oooku's trailer! Low quality, filmed at some screening apparently, but you can get the picture.

Edit for second trailer: [livejournal.com profile] suikascented shared a HQ trailer here:

Commenting with spoilers for Oooku's 1st volume ) I'm scared of some of that acting, but apparently is very close to the manga. I wonder how Yoshinaga must feel right now. Seriously, it looks awesome.

Now, on shonen manga:

Fairy Tail: General thoughts on the manga )

Kinda messy comments on the plot: Spoilers and comments up to chapter 150 )

ETA for spoilers to 155: Spoilers relevant to this post )

Reborn: Pst. You know, it's pretty funny how Reborn's fandom can make an uberly dreadful chapter way more fun. If I ever doubted this manga was all about its fandom.

Kenyan Sci-Fi Short Pumzi Hits Sundance With Dystopia.

Pumzi, Kenya’s first science fiction film, imagines a dystopian future 35 years after water wars have torn the world apart. East African survivors of the ecological devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.

The short film, which will compete in screen at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, “started off as a small script about what kind of world we would have to be if we had to buy fresh air,” writer/director Wanuri Kahiu told Wired.com in a Skype interview.

It looks awesome.

You see, James Cameron was being an asshat, as always, yadda, yadda, so he openly had to come out and say what he thinks of (yeah, even white) women and non-white people in general.

The good thing is that I can quote this comment by yeloson

"Because this is a movie for human people."

It's always interesting how the fact that how real people consume and interpret media only matters when it comes to CG titties and not so much when people talk about the native tropes w/o the natives - then suddenly media exists in a magical parallel dimension free of human interpretation in creation, delivery or interpretation.

It just describes my fandom life. Pretty accurately.

Oh boy, big spoilers for all of James Cameron's Avatar, but this is an epic win:

FailBlog on Avatar. Cameron. The plots of your celebrated movies are always so very cliché (and racist in some cases, but we all know that already).

Today was a... very interesting day.

I was out all day and managed to get lost twice: going to a friend's house and coming from the same friend's house. I drove there, and, funnily enough, going was easier than coming. I just confused some blocks going there. Coming back home? Oh boy. Because she lives in a neighbor city, changing my route totally got me lost. I ended... traveling for all my fucking city.

We saw two movies, 2012 and The Proposal. Both were amazingly bad. 2012 was at least (unintentionally) hilarious and managed to have characters of color. The romantic comedy was just depressing and extremely racist, even if it had a better writer than 2012 (it was still bad though).

Have you heard about this film? Because I haven't until now. It looks gorgeous. I'm really curious.

Zeitgeist: Addendum

Have you watched it? What did you think of it?

I have a lot of things to criticize, specially the way it doesn't touch (or oversimplifies) issues like race, class and other social dynamics. The 'we are all the same, we have the same struggles, if we let aside a monetary system everything will change' annoyed me. It kinda ignored other forms of discrimination which are very tied to "The Monetary System," but not completely dependent of it. The segment about religion being bad was way oversimplified. And that final sequence of white corporate-people succumbing and leaving aside their corporate ways, and people of color being... stereotypical? Yeah, it all starts with a white man.

But I loved it. I sincerely loved it. Great documentary. It was truly eye-opening even if I don't agree with everything. Maybe I will talk about it in another entry.

You can watch it here: http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/add_spanish.htm (Spanish subs). I recommend it.

I haven't watched the first movie by the way.

This is a movie I don't plan on watching. Ever.

How the hell can people like Tony Stark at all if he is depicted in such a way? (Oh wait, I forgot: he is the multimillionaire white-man with the big suit, and all the hot chiks.) Pretty effects, huh? I so don't care.

I'm so tired of Hollywood depiction of the Third World. Hell, I'm tired of Hollywood depiction of everything.

Exams you ask? Yeah, I'm going to sleep.

ETA: What the hell? A month without Tsubasa? How did I manage to miss that? I'm going to guess Kurogane and Fay don't appear in this chapter either. My suffering is long, I miss my OTP. (Shut up people who will tell me it's not THAT long! I want them NOW, I'm... stressed. Or something.)
