Waking Life

 

Big thanks go out to Istima Loke for pointing me to this movie. Dreaming is a phenomenon I've been fascinated with for as long as I can remember. Over the past few years, during many a stoned head trip, I've developed my own theories about the relation of the mental world to the physical world. I was amazed at how this one film managed to capture all these things I had already come up with myself. Concepts such as the collective memory and the way afterlife was handled, were presented exactly the way I had imagined them way before even knowing about this movie. So while it didn't really offer anything new to me, it was still way cool to see I'm definitely not the only one with this line of thinking.

 

 

 

On a sidenote, does anyone know what it takes to study dreams professionally? I imagine it requires some serious biology and psychology knowledge?

 

Sidenote: Dreaming is simly a phenomena. You can probably attack it any way you want. But personally I'd suggest you do so from a scientific basis. I don't know what your background is, but it may need specialising or beefing up. If you are properly interested, go to your loacl library and find some relevant active authors, track them down, and call 'em up for advice. Never underestimate the power of being REALLY interested in a person's vocation.

Little Children (2006) - Decent flick, won't appeal to everyone especially if you consider the subject matter. The voice over might be clever, but to me it just gets annoying and pulls you away from the story instead of drawing you in. Jackie Earle Haley as a registered sex offender is brilliant in his portrayal, and long way away from Kelly Leak in the Bad News Bears. WOW

7.5/10

Invasion. Daniel Craig is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors. I've never been a fan of the Bond films, yet I find Casino Royal a brilliant film.

Invasion was good. Seems like a decent reworking of the old 'Invasion Of The Body Snatchers' story.

Hadn't seen this gem yet. Burton's best film imo, and an awesome performance by Depp. Fallout fans should definitely check this movie, it has pipboy style all over it.

I've never been a fan of the Bond films,

dude....what?

 

i also saw Tropic Thunder recently. as said, it was very fun. i'm always hesitant when Ben Stiller is involved, but Downey Jr. was enough to intrigue me, and JB sealed the deal. the sountrack was sweet, the cursing and gore were in excess, and it had Nick Nolte. what's not to like?

It's true, I've always hated most Bond movies. Sure, the women were hot (well, except Grace Jones), but I always found them quite silly. CR was pretty much the first film in the series I've seen from start to finish.

I've disliked all the bond films as well, save the last one with the new bond but it was still cheesy and altogether lame. Bourne is so much better in the spy/action genre becuase it doesn't involve end of the world scenarios (which are almost always retarded no matter the universe or story), he doesn't use fantastically dumb gadgets, and he also doesn't rely on shallow man children irking to see some mildly famous hot girl get in bed with Bond. Collectively the Bond series is ridiculous and in my opinion trash.

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

Awesome disaster movie, but face it, after the world froze it just got plain old boring.

I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

The Scorpion King 2#.

 

Wow, that was really horrible, but I guess I knew that going in. Sometimes horrible movies turn out hilarious, like Anaconda, as a forinstance.

 

#1 was a terrible movie. I have no idea why they needed #2. What's next? Battlefield Earth 2?

Yes, but the slave girls were hotter than in Conan the Barbarian

greg358 from Darksouls 3 PVP is a CHEATER.

That is all.

The Orphanage (also known as El Orfanato) - good movie, I'm re-watching it via Netflix's "watch instantly" feature. :ermm:

Tropic Thunder - It was a lot of fun. It was great to see a few big name actors having a blast in the movie. Downy Jr. was insanely good.

Well, Alicia Silverstone looked searingly hot in that body-tight latex Batgirl costume in "Batman & Robin", but I'd still call that a terrible movie despite liking Batman.

I saw Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas again. Sober this time. Last time I saw it was on shrooms. Was an interesting experience but didn't follow the plot at all (not that there is any).

 

I love that film. If there was one dude I'd ever want to be reincarnated in, it'd be Depp. Such a charisma.
