Rise of the Planet of the Apes
God this movie was good. I can’t stop thinking about the themes of power, devotion, morality, and misunderstanding. They really made the audience connect with the characters, especially Ceasar the ape. His character arc really played out well from the death of his mother, growing up, wondering about his origin, feeling a sense of inequity, and finally ending with questioning his status...
Catching angry birds
Okay, today I saw Captain America. I enjoyed it. Yeah it wasn’t as cool as Iron Man, but definitely worth seeing. Captain America was more about character dynamics and less about visual stimulation. I really liked how they were sending the message that being a hero isn’t just about physical strength; it is also about doing what is right and putting others before yourself. Not that...

All the time I try to quote songs on my facebook status, it looses its magic. It sounds so much better in the melody. Then I just look lame.
How come everyone else but the person who actually set the alarm gets woken up by it? I’m the only person that doesn’t have to wake up, but I’m the only person that hears the eeeenk eeeenk eeeeenk eeeeenk. And when I set the alarm for me, I sleep right through it. Urgh.

lockedgossoon: that’s all i gotta say…
Two friends and I were having a late night/early morning discussion about religion at Denny’s over plates of country fried steak and sausage. More specifically, we were talking about what we would give up for Lent. They were talking about laying off things like listening to house music or refraining from driving. I began to tell them that I thought the purpose of lent was to give up...
Even heros have the right to bleed.
It’s always scary when you see someone stronger than you failing. The world is a cold, hard, place.

Nothing is black and white. But sometimes I wish they were.
I don’t know if this is a form of superstition, but I find myself looking for patterns in everything that happens in my life. My quest for some sort of synchronicity is perpetual. For example, if I wake up in the morning and I stub my toe, I feel like it is going to start a pattern of small misfortunes throughout the day. Or, if somehow, I have a bad morning, and then something great...

So tragic (Never Let Me Go)
What is up with people’s fascination with tragedy? Why do people like sad movies? You know, the ones that involve dying heroes and tragic heartbreaks? Why is it that the sadder the movie, the more awards they win. I have to admit… I’m no different. I’m a sucker for the occasional tear-jerker. Especially the ones that have me pondering for hours after I’ve left the...
