Leslie Mann vs. Judy Greer

I was watching both George of the Jungle and Elizabethtown recently. Anyway, when I watched, I noticed that Leslie Mann, the lady who played the leading lady in George of the Jungle, reminded me of Judy Greer, the lady who played Orlando Bloom’s character’s sister in Elizabethtown. To me, they look like they could pass for sisters, if not cousins. I think what it is that they’re both blond, they have similar eyes, etc. I don’t know. That’s just what I think.

9/11

With the anniversary of 9/11 having come and gone, I can’t get over the fact that it’s already been eight years. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. You know, I still remember when I went to school that day, my homeroom/English teacher, history teacher, and band teacher had their classroom TVs going. I remember specifically remember when I went to band class. I remember not seeing anyone setting up to play and the back door was open. Now, keep in mind that the only time that the back door was open was whenever we had a performance and had to take out the percussion instruments out. Anyway, everybody was sitting on the ground, watching the news. Again, I still can’t believe that it’s been eight years.

Patrick Swayze’s Death

Well, the first thing that I want to do is give my condolences to the Swayze family. The second thing is that I want to talk about his death. The first thing that I thought of when I found out was, Yeah right. He’s not dead. But then, I looked it up on the internet and saw all of the news flashes saying that he was dead. When I saw all of the news articles, the next thing that popped into mind was, Whoa. He’s actually dead. That made me think, in turn, about the other famous people who died this year. There was Walter Cronkite, Farrah Fawcett, the famous Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, Ted Kennedy, David Carradine, and now Patrick Swayze and Henry Gibson. Is it just me, or does it seem like 2009 is a bad year, other than the recession, in terms of famous people dying? I can’t even count how many famous people have died over the summer. I think that’s just nuts. It’s like 2009 is cursed when comes to famous people dying. Anyway, that’s just my opinion. By the way, go check out this article. It’s just like this posting.

Tim Burton and Labyrinth

I was watching this Labryinth music video the other day, which I’m not going to upload because it’s not mine, and I thought to myself, Tim Burton would have been a great director for Labyrinth. I don’t know why I thought that. I think what it is is that Tim Burton’s movies and Labryinth has a very similar aesthetic. The only thing that I would be concerned about would be all the puppet use in Labyrinth. Anyway, that’s just what I think.

Supernatural, Seasons 1-4

With season 5 just starting, that made me think about the previous four seasons. Is it just me or does it seem like as the seasons progressed, the quality of the stories and the fear factor gone down? I personally think that it’s because we, the fans, have gotten over the thrills of seasons 1 and 2, and kinda of come to expect to be scared. I don’t know. That’s just what I think. Oh, and plus, I think whole storyline of old Yellow Eyes ended with his death in season 2. I think that’s when they tried to expand his story with Sam and the whole war thing, it got convoluted. Anyway…yeah.

Sam and Dean

Supernatural Season 5 Premiere

Ok, first thing is that if you haven’t seen the Supernatural season 5 premiere, then don’t read this. It has spoilers. Anyway, I can’t believe what happened to Bobby. I can’t believe that he got possessed, stabbed himself, and now is paralyzed. I thought that he would have done something to prevent demons from possessing, like tattoo a demon possession repellent like how Sam and Dean did. Anyway, I can’t wait to see episode 2 because I could have sworn that I saw Jo and Ellen in the preview. I wonder if they’re coming back for season 5. I hope they are. It would be nice to see them again since it’s been like two years since they were seen last.

Books vs. Movies

I recently talked to a classmate who noticed that the book I had brought with me to class. A little FYI, the book in Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. Anyway, she said that she didn’t particularly care for the book and asked how the movie was, because I had seen the movie. I told her that it was similar to the book, at least up until the part that I read. Anyway, because of that conversation, we got to talking about how it’s better to watch a movie that based on books first, and then read the book. I find it to be true because if you do that, at least you wouldn’t be as disappointed. Now, if you were to read the book first and the saw the movie, then you would probably be more disappointed. I say that because if you read the book first, you come to have higher expectations for the movie. And if the movie doesn’t have a certain character or storyline, etc., then you’ll probably be like, “Why they didn’t include so-and-so or why they didn’t include that subplot?” That in turn would lead to disappointment. But if you were to watch the movie first, then you wouldn’t know if a certain character or certain storyline was included or not. Anyway, that’s just what I think.
