The Critics say...
Out of sheer boredom, and nothing honestly important to write about (right now), as well as the fact I completely forgot I used to do this, here I am… but a little bit of a different update. It’s July, and so far only four films have received the beloved “Critic’s seal” which is given out by the Broadcast Critic’s Association Board. This board holds a lot more...
So, get this! The french song they play when the “kick” is about to happen is a famous song by legendary french singer Edith Piaf. A movie was made a few years ago called La vie en rose which was the biopic of this singer, and an actress named Marion Cotillard took home the Oscar for playing her. Marion Cotillard plays Mal in Inception. WOO! Also, Marion Cotillard and Ellen Page were...
I just bought the movie poster for Inception. …Two of them. (and the poster for Up in the Air.)
Mind still blown.
More things make sense, more pieces fit. But still so many questions. I should probably write them all down, as well as the stuff that now makes total sense. Round 3 coming soon. Is it real or just a dream? P.S. Awesome that my obsession didn’t leave after I saw the movie, eh?
Movie Review: Inception
Often times, we see directors back themselves into corners that they simply can’t get out of. They create something so brilliant, and in return they’re expected to re-create the same brilliance each time and reach a new level while doing so. Many directors, unfortunately, have crumbled under this weight: M. Night Shyamalan’s attempts to follow up his genius in The Sixth Sense, Rob Marshall...

The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience… I will dispense this advice now. Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth. Oh, nevermind. You will not...
What movie will I obsess over next?
Among other things, you’ll find that you’re not the first person who was ever...– J.D. Salinger
Devil - Now, Shyamalan IS a terrible director these days, but he’s a fine producer. And his original ideas are always interesting and different, so it’s about time he put his thoughts in the hands of more talented directors. So since he’s not behind the camera this time, one can always hope his brilliant ideas (excluding Last Airbender. Not his idea) won’t be tainted by his...
It’s Kind Of A Funny Story
Maybe I get lost in my mind too much.
Welcome to the Rileys - I knew Kristen Stewart could act.
A movie about how Facebook began is just going to be awesome. Just saying.
Open your eyes.
Blessed are the forgetful, for they get the better even of their blunders.– Nietzsche
“I don’t know you, but I want you. All the more for that words fall through me, and always fool me. And I can’t react. And games that never amount to more than they’re meant will play themselves out. Take this sinking boat and point it home. We’ve still got time. Raise your hopeful voice, you have a choice. You’ll make it now. Falling slowly, eyes that know me....
