SCHOOL!!!

Weather i like or not... this is our last day of our summer vacation. No more staying up late and sleeping in. It went by so fast... every year seems to go by faster and faster, by the time i'm 40 the year will go by like a speeding train. I remember when i was in elemetary school, summer seemed to be alot longer than it is nowdays.

Atleast there's only one year of school left...unfortunately filled with math and science, even though ill probably end up not needing those courses for what i'll end up doing.

At this moment i'm planing on going in animation. Mixing both of my favorite passtimes movies and art. I can't wait till colege everything's going to be like a new adventure. It's like you only start your life after graduating.


MOVIE UPDATE...

Kings of comedy - 8/10

Kill Bil vol. 2

The tone of Volume 2 is very different from the first one. While the first one was more of a stylistic almost satirical take on Japanese samurai movies of the 70s, Vol. 2 was trying to be more of a serious film focusing on the characters emotional state which suceeds at some level but i kept wanting more of what made Kill Bill 1 so special. For that i was a bit disapointed. Although the Pei Mai scene alone is worth watching the movie for.

Rating: 8/10

GodFather

I finaly decided to rent the Godfather, boy was i in for a treat. Everything i heard about it was true, it really is a masterpeice. This is by far the best movie about organized crime, even though i haven't seen many mobster movie. It's even more than a movie about crime it's a movie about family.

The acting is great, the story is great, the music is great and the direction is great. What more could you ask for? What a cast, it features some of the best actors of it's time. There's scenes that stay with you when the movies over, and you don't forget them. I'll never forget the scene where the guy wakes up with his horse's head in his bed. Classic. The music is also iconic, it would probably rank in my favorite movie themes along with StarWars and 2001 A Space Odyssey.
Francis does an incredible job with this movies direction.

There is a reason why this movie ranks among the top of almost every list that's out there. If you were like me and you've never seen godfather, go rent it now.

Rating: 9.5/10
