So London was egp-fellating. Gave out 11 copies of the sky is falling in, to mad props from groovy people, mostly on design related issues, so all kudos goes Benward.
Other then that... yeh, the weekend was cool. Eveyrone was happy and conversation flowed (this is rare) and there were no fights and we talke about 24 a whole bunch of times. It was fun. And Lilith didn't eat my head, which so totally made things better still.
And then on Monday we watched TOO MANY FILMS-
Run Lola Run- I liked this. It was a cool idea, and open to deeper thought if you're so inclined. But it was marred by being dubed, having animation like those evil fucking French videos Muzzy and actually not managing to impart ANY SENSE OF ENERGY ON ME AT ALL. But that last point may have been becasue it was two in the morning...
Eraserhead- This I had wanted to see for a while (same with the above), but I really don't think I got it. It was a uick, fucked little film, but maybe I'm just too dumb, as it didn't really scare me. The Lady In The Radiator was cool, but... uh... HOW?! Was this even explained in the plot? At all? What was Lynch even thinking?! Deffinatly a film I will have to see again (in maybe a less... green version), just because I want to like it so much more then I do.
Battle Royale- This film had such a great derth of internal consistency that it makes you wonder just how it was adapted from an apparently very well crafted book. That said, it was fortunatly subtitled insteead of dumbed and there was lots of killing, with (apparently) A MORAL POINT! Bonus!
Requim For A Dream- Badly flawed by the constant jerking of the DVD playback, this film was still great. An enermous, violent visual hit to the head, my only gripe is that it doesn't really handle the teevee idea, um... at all... instead just bringing drugs back to to it again.
American Psycho- Enjoyable at the time but, uh... WHERE'S THE PLOT?! I'm sure there must be a bit more of a one in the book. MAybe I'll even bother to read my second-hand copy of it one day to find out. It's good, tho, in it's own self-important way, and atleast it tries to make a comment. Unlike...
American Psycho 2- Wrong wrong wrong on so many levels... IT MAKES NO SENSE! IT HAS WILLIAM SHATNER IN IT!! IT'S HORRIBLE, TERRIBLY BAD!!!
And thus concludes my London-catch-up post. Wasn't it fun?!
