It looks like I'm finally starting to get a break. I got 2 job offers this afternoon. One of them is where my husband works. I'm excited and unbelievably happy. Here's hoping things continue to get better.

#5/movie review

After I don't know how long, I finally completed another goal. And it was with an awesome movie. It's called The Horde. It's in French, but it fits so well. Basically, a group of crooked cops try to avenge the death of another cop by taking down a crime lord and his lackeys. Right in the middle of that, the zombie apocalypse breaks out, forcing them to work together to survive. was absolutely brilliant. It wasn't just some low budget piece of crap that was thrown together. It actually was a very deep movie. What would you do if your allies became your enemies and vice versa? Would you just deal, or would you yourself also become a monster? Even if you're not into horror movies, this is worth watching just for the story and character development. Once again, well done France.

Quick and dirty movie reviews pt 3

Albert Fish:
And now I start the documentary portion of my reviews. This one was good, I suppose. It's really hard to fairly review this given the subject matter: a child killer with a fetish for poop and pee. The movie is basically an account of when he got caught, and delves into his past. I think this is a movie for hardcore serial killer/morbid history buffs. I like horror movies, and I like gore. I don't like it when it's actually real.

The Business of Being Born:
Every couple that is pregnant, wants or is in the process of starting a family needs to see this movie. It's a real eye opener. I will say that wanting to give birth in a hospital isn't bad. I would like to think most women do their research first, and not do what people think they should do. Every one should see this movie.

Not the best in the world, but not the worst. I believe it was about several disappearances that occurred in upstate New York. It was kind of boring to me though. It went back and forth about what caused them. Was it supernatural? An escaped patient from the nearby mental hospital? I really don't know. It never clarified anything. This was like the film student's Blair Witch Project. It just wasn't that impressive.

American Meth:
I was saddened by this one. It's heartbreaking to see people broken down and strung out. But that's reality. It's raw and in your face, but it's effective. I saw give it a shot if you're curious as to what a meth addiction looks like. And don't do drugs. No one likes a meth head.

Very Young Girls:
I felt so uncomfortable while I was watching this. Girls as young as 11 or 12 being put to work as prostitutes. It does showcase a woman and her organization that try to rehabilitate these girls and get them off the streets. Unfortunately most of them relapse and go back to their pimps. I'm not going to make any jokes. It's not something that should be joked about. It's a serious problem, and it's all over the country. I commend that woman for working day and night to do whatever she can. And I hope others will follow in her footsteps. Only watch this if you want to see how bad things could get for girls in those situations.

On this day...

...Osama Bin Laden was finally killed. And the US has his body. This is huge. Almost 10 years to the day of one of the worst tragedies our country has seen, and the piece of crap responsible is going to pay for all eternity. I never thought I'd see the day. I know it probably sounds sick that I'm happy about it. But this is someone that caused the death of hundreds, then had a hand in starting a war that murdered thousands. Yes, I'm glad he's gone. I'm not sorry for being happy about this.

Quick and dirty movie reviews pt 2

And I'm back. Sorry I'm super behind on my movies. The good news is I now have more time to do my reviews. Starting with:

Tokyo Gore Police:
Oh Japan, how I love you. This movie is a gorehound's dream. We're talking dismemberment, disembowelment, and another dis word I can't think of. It makes no sense, but it's one of those movies that you don't watch for the story. You watch it to get grossed out and see people turned into mince meat. And boy does it succeed. If you want to gallons of blood within the first 10 minutes, this one's perfect for you.

I Am an S&M Writer:
I believe this is my first non-horror review.'s a dumb movie. It's about some "famous" Japanese S&M write, and how his life basically falls apart because he writes smut. I think they we're going for comedy, but it just didn't work. It ended up being a 90 minute pro-anal ad. All they talked about was anal and women's peeholes (I wish I was lying). It's long, weird and kind of creepy. But, if you're into that sort of thing, I won't judge.

Let me start by first saying this has NOTHING to do with the one we all know. There were no ugly stepsisters or mother, no prince or anything else you can think of. It's about this plastic surgeon who's keeping a secret from her daughter about her past. It sounds very interesting, but it quickly became convoluted. I'm guessing it was trying to warn against vanity. I'm not sure. It didn't really strike a chord. If you want to see bitchy girls get their faced hacked up, then this is worth a one time watch. 

I love French movies. And this is no exception. It's so whimsical and funny. It's all in subtitles, but it's so worth it. I haven't seen a movie this well done in a very long time. It's about a young woman named Amelie who definitely lets her imagination get the best of her. If you have 2 hours and want to be taken on a ride, please check this one out.

I think I had a nerdgasm...

Alex and I are huge anime fanatics (otakus, anime freaks, ect). There's this convention that comes every year in Baltimore called Otakon. The first and last time I went was 2005. Alex has been going off and on since 2000. When I went, I didn't have a good time. I just went with the wrong people, and I didn't get to have the experience that I wanted. The good news is...We're going back this year! The last weekend in July to be exact. This will be our first convention together. And yes, we will more than likely Cosplay (dress up as characters, for those that don't know). We have some ideas, but nothing's set in stone yet. We still have 3 months. Anyways, I'm just uber excited and I can't wait to get my costume. Expect LOTS of pictures...

Day 30 - My favorite song this time last year

And I'm done! Ok, I'll admit my posts weren't on schedule, but hey I still made an attempt. I honestly can't remember what my favorite song was this time last year, so I'm making an educated guess.
