Looper Review

Before you say anything, YES I went to go see it.

Hey, Rotten Tomatoes gave it 92%. I’m not really sure why but it had it’s moments. And who doesn’t like seeing Bruce Willis do his thing?

So if you plan to see the movie you can stop reading here. I won’t put too many spoilers but how can you do a review of a movie when you don’t say anything about it right?

The way they filmed Looper was very aesthetically pleasing. There’s a mix of new and old cars and stuff like that but the way that the director interpreted some of the stuff happening in the movie was just breathtaking. How changes in the present can instantly be seen in the future self. It might just sound like a bunch of confusing mumbo jumbo but if you watch the movie you’ll see what I mean.

Everyone’s acting was pretty on point. Great dialogue between characters. Beautiful shots. There’s one part where they’re in the cornfields and it just reminded me of North by Northwest. Running through the cornfields for cover kinda stuff.

If you have read other reviews yes they do include stuff like TK or telekinetic powers but it is what it is.

The ending was disappointing though. Plot hole. Plot hole. PLOT HOLE. But I had an easier time dealing with them than Mark did.

Go see it if you think Joseph Gordon-Levitt and/or Bruce Willis is hot. If you get too anal about the possibility of time travel and the logistics of changing the present in order to change the future, maybe take a rain check on it so you don’t go absolutely nuts.

Rolls Royce x Ada Wong Orgasm

So the other day I went to go see Resident Evil in the theaters. Some have Star Trek, others Star Wars but my Holy Grail is Resident Evil so I couldn’t resist!

The movie kind of sucked compared to the others but there were two things that made the movie worth my time. Well three is you count Michelle Rodriguez. RAWR! For those of you who don’t know I was Michelle Rodriguez from Machete for Halloween last year. I should have pictures somewhere but it’s just me in my bra. Go figure right? Haha.

But anyways, besides Michelle Rodriguez (appearing multiple times), Ada Wong fuckin made that movie! God was she drop dead gorgeous! I know who I want to be for Halloween! Ugh…do I have time though? Or anything to do? Meh. Plus I look kind of strange with short hair.

I could NOT stop staring at her the WHOLE movie. She’s one sexy fox. This was also pretty surprising because they usually pick ugly ass Asian girls to star in movie roles like Lucy Liu or Brenda Song or even Devon Aoki. I KNOW there are much prettier girls than those three.

And if Ada Wong wasn’t hot enough. I got to see my baby on the Big Screen! If you watch the youtube clip I attached above you’ll see what it is. Not only is she driving a brand new Rolls Royce through the fake streets of Russia but this car is bad ass! It survives almost any damage imaginable! Like she would survive if she were in a Honda Civic or something. Psh. The movie would end right there.

It was well worth the $8.75 I paid to go see it.

And I’m so disappointed in my Broncos! I’m glad they were at least able to catch up from a 13-0 at the end of the 1st.

Retail Therapy

So it’s no secret that I’ve been a little homesick so when I asked my mother to send me some Trader Joe’s goodies she went out right away to get them for me! I had all but forgotten about Trader Joe’s while I’ve been here but I had a sudden craving for Caramel Waffles and everyone who knows knows that Trader Joe’s waffles can’t be beat! YUM!

My mother also sent other cookies and goodies that I love! And some Yerba Mate tea that ALWAYS makes me feel better when I have a stomach ache. You guys should try it some time when you aren’t feeling well. Yes it has caffeine but it does wonders! All you need is Yerba Mate with a lot of honey and it’s like you’re all better again!

She also sent me wafers which I absolutely detest. She always forgets and sends them to me anyway. *Shrug* It’s the thought that counts. I’ll eat everything else and leave the wafers for someone else to devour. I need to remind my mother about the biscotti too next time.

I’ve also been hitting the gym since I’ve been feeling a little pudgy lately and I feel great! It’s hard when you don’t have your gay best friend to go with you  but I’m trying my best to be consistent.

I’ve also been spending too much money since Mark’s been gone. But like the title says, it’s retail therapy. I’m trying to cope being alone and it’s going pretty well. I’ve made some friends and I’ve been going out so I’m doing better than I thought I would be.

Look what I got today!

I bought my little nephew (in-law) this rad Spiderman shirt so I can give it to him when we go visit during Christmas! Spiderman is EVERYTHING to this kid. Literally. Just hope he doesn’t outgrow the shirt TOO fast. And then before we go I’ll stop by Target again and get him some action figures. It’s hard when you don’t know what they have or don’t have but I’m sure he’ll be happy either way.

I also got myself the next Tokidoki Planner. 3 years strong!

I’m pretty sure I left the 2011 back home in LA.

And the only reason why I bought this one now is because in my 2012 planner there’s a page in there that says “IT’S ABOUT TIME TO ORDER YOUR NEXT PLANNER!” but then it also said “CONTINENTAL US”. Go figure.  So I decided it only made sense to just buy it when I saw it.

I also mailed out presents for my friends and family today which I hope they’ll enjoy. I just love sending mail! I really do. If anyone wants a new penpal let me know! Hahaha.

And more sports blog posts coming soon! I promise!

*EDIT*

I also bought these off ebay yesterday. I just couldn’t resist! They just screamed ME!

Aren’t they just adorable! Can’t wait to get them in the mail!

Time traveling hamsters? Really?

Time traveling hamsters really?

If I wasn’t embarrassed before I sure as hell am now.

I rather lie and say that I eat dog rather than admit to being from a race that created this kind of monstrosity.

Gross.

Paranorman : Movie Review

Hearing that Paranorman was by the same people who did Coraline I couldn’t help but want to watch it. Granted the commercials and marketing kind of sucked but I was willing to see it regardless. And I ended up enjoying the movie just as much as I thought I would. It was hard to find someone to go with me though…I was pretty close to just going by myself, which is what I did when I went to see Brave and I’m so glad I did. I loved that movie too! I guess I’ve been on a children’s movie kick? Actually, no not really. Most of them are still pretty stupid and slow. But LAIKA hasn’t disappointed me yet so I was sold as soon as I heard about it.


Paranorman Trailer HD

I’m a little picky when it comes to animation style but since I absolutely adored the work behind Coraline I knew that the same time and effort would be seen in Paranorman. For those of you who haven’t seen the “Behind the Scenes” for the making of Coraline, I strongly recommend it. Anyone who has the talent, skill and patience to make a claymation, my hats go off to you.

Here’s a little piece of the making of Coraline. Just absolutely stunning!

And for those of you who are iffy about going because it is a “kids” movie, you shouldn’t feel that way. A lot of the people watching were grown adults and at some parts I questioned if this movie was ACTUALLY for kids, like I did with Coraline. That movie was scary. For real. Animation, story, music and dialogue are ON POINT.

And for someone who believes in ghosts it was a little comforting, to be honest. And for those of you who don’t, I am not trying to push anything on you. All I’m saying is that it is easier to enjoy a movie when there is a relatable factor between the film and the viewer.

I’ve given my 2 cents here I just hope you guys will go check it out. Cheers.

Jeremy Lin x Hello Kitty

Jeremy Lin escaping paparazzi in a Hello Kitty head.

Shot (kinda) to promote the 60 minutes segment they are going to air on Lin.

Do people still care about Jeremy Lin?

Sorry I got bored and didn’t even bother to watch the whole video. What I will say is that when Mark and I went to Hong Kong the kids who play pick up ball weren’t very aggressive. But what IS interesting is that in Macau we saw some pretty old dudes showing the young kids how to REALLY play. Well some of them. The others were just fat old dudes without shirts (which I could have done without).

What was the point of this post? Who knows.

I’m sorry about the lack of NBA updates you guys. I think Dwight Howard killed the game for me. Bleh.

I like how they picked David Lee (of all people) to be in the video. Weird.
