I was expecting a Takashi Miike film as I watched it (You know, Audition which I blogged about in the past or Ichi the Killer or Visitor Q). Instead, I got a riot of a film.
The film wasn't particularly strong; to be quite honest, it was a display of constant silliness but I can't say a movie genred as Horror - Comedy - Musical could go any differently. Yepp, that's right. Horror Comedy Musical, and it's not even dark grungy songs. No, at one point we are delighted with a song very reminiscent of the Sound of Music.
The story is basically one about a family that have an abandoned guest house. Nobody ever comes until random strange events start occurring when the first guest arrives into their Hotel California, so to speak. Up until now, the film was rather slow and tedious. There were a couple of laughs, but it really kicked off in the second half when the Athlete and his lolita arrive to the hotel. The whole premise, while foreseeable, is hilarious in execution
Acting, cinematography and all the like are at best mediocre for the most part, though this film certainly wasn't aiming for technical superiority but rather a this-is-so-bad-it-is-actually-good, sort of feel. Also, to be fair, some moments were very creative cinematographic-ally and helped alleviate (along with the completely intentionally inappropriate music) the otherwise serious nature of the event.
For people into trash and mocking hollywood culture, it's a definite watch. But, like other Miike films though in a different way, it's not for everyone.
To be fair, sunburn, according to sources I read, peaks 4 - 72 hours after the burn occurs, so as speculated my right shoulder and chest burns are all fine and dandy now, and my feet and knee burns should be over and done with in at best 24 hours (they're much better already thank you for asking). For any of you thinking "Why the fuck did you go in the sun when you were burnt?" (which is probably none of you, you inconsiderate fucks), it's because my summer job dictates it. I have to take care of foreign students, which is actually pretty fun.
Either way, Aloe Vera is a goddess. With large white wings. And cool peppermint breath.
On an unrelated note. I'm somewhat over the internet. I'm barely using it anymore, as one can tell by my lack of constant blog updating + facebook for any of you that have me added. I unno really, probably a phase. Who knows. For now, back to rest.
Oh wait, I don't have a rating. Apparently, according to the KRS website, assuming chronological order, Toy Story 3 is listed after Inception (which is 18th July), meaning that I'll have to wait at least a month to see it. Well, see it in theatre rather.
Thank you KRS! *thumbs up*
(Yes, this is a rant post. Deal with it. I've only watched one new film this week (Mulholland Drive - 8/10) due to being stuck seeing the Big Bang Theory which I almost finished now. So back to films next week. Meanwhile, I WANT TOY STORY DAMNIT XD)
So the world cup is very much under way. Countless games have been played, but the real exciting ones have yet to be (potentially) played.
Sure, Germany completely kicked Aussie ass, but let's face it, that was the only exciting match. Below, read about possibly amazing ones.
North Korea vs South Korea
What else could be as exciting as some friendly north and south rivalry. Bookmakers are very excited about the chance that this game will be played out, but there's just one problem.
That was (North Korea Dictator) Kim Jong-il's face when they told him that South Korea might play in his half. So in such a game, we might expect a lot of kicks from one side of the ground to the other, in hopes that one of the goalies commits a "Green", so to speak.
Predicted Score: 0-0
Germany vs Greece
Apparently, in the first random draws, Greece and Germany were in the same group, but organisers decided to redraw when the Greeks started begging the Germans to stay in the EU so they can save them from the economic turmoil and offered to bribe them with goals. Fifa decided not to take any risk
(Also, on an unrelated note. Will suck for money is an NSFW search)
Regardless, the Germans said they'd reject this. Apparently, the Greeks suck anyway
Predicted Score: 7 - 0
United States of America vs Japan
Not much to say about this game. USA said they'd bomb Japan with goals. The Japanese said something in retort about bad taste, but nobody understood them.
The USA also added that they'd declare the World Cup won by them and only them if they win this game as apparently they'll have suppressed the biggest threat.
Needless to say, such a game would never occur, as greenpeace activists would lie on the floor saying they have the right to investigate the Japanese people's bodies to see if there are is any dolphin meat lurching about in their stomach. So
Prediction: Not going to happen
France vs Ivory Coast
Ivory Coast are expected to win this game very easily if it ever came to be.
Apparently, the French argued something about not being able to tell the difference between their players and those of the Cote D'Ivoire. That, and they're a bad team.
Predicted Score: 0-2
Spain vs Switzerland
Here's a game that will surely happen tomorrow in the group phases, and Spain are expected to win this game.
The Swiss players complained that their fans weren't emotive like the above supporter. The Swiss fans responded saying that they wished to remain neutral.
Predicted Score: 3-0
Honduras vs New Zealand
Nobody would care
Prediction: Who cares?
And that is all for now in football / soccer / unsynchronised dancing from this blog.
Meanwhile, let's get a bit hyped for Brazil vs North Korea. I heard the North Koreans have pulled out the big guns for this competition.
