What does the H in “JESUS H CHRIST!” stand for?
I’ve always wondered about that. Who came up with that?!

How do people work a full-time job with and a second job? Mad Propz!

How come I have such low energy? Why am I always tired?
8 hours… 5 hours… 10 hours of sleep and it makes no difference!

How come catfish and sea bass aren’t offered at sushi restaurants? Are they not raw fish eating material?

I’m waiting for a conference call… and this is what I do in the meantime.

“Even though I’m no more than a monster… Don’t I have the right to live?”

Hey! Hey!

So since I’m cooped up inside the house again because of snow, I figured I would write a blog about a movie suggestion.

If you want to see the ultimate revenge flick – Oldboy, directed by Chan-wook Park, is the one to see.

It’s a Korean foreign film which requires the reading of English subtitles. If you’re not a fan of foreign films or subtitles, I urge you to make an exception for this one. It’ll get you. But just to be on the safe side, I’ll give my overall taste in movies as a guide for you to gauge whether or not it’s right for you.

I can’t give you just one favorite movie, simply because I don’t believe there could ever be ONE movie that trumps all. Sure, there are some that I have a special place for and have no problem watching over and over and over again. But I can’t choose one.

It’s impossible.

Here’s just a snippet of my favorite films. I put them in chronological order, since I obviously can’t just choose one. I can’t even imagine putting in the brain power to weigh how much I like one more than the other. I’d be sitting here for days. There’s such a wide range! Anywho, I digress…

(1965) The Great Race
(1957) Twelve Angry Men
(1958) Vertigo
(1960) Psycho
(1961) West Side Story
(1992) Resevoir Dogs
(1993) Robin Hood: Men In Tights
(1994) Forrest Gump
(1997) Jackie Brown
(1999) The Mummy
(2004) Mean Girls
(2006) The Prestige
(2006) Inside Man
(2006) The Departed
(2008) The Dark Knight
(2009) Inglorious Bastards

I mean the list goes on and on….

No… but seriously

Again that’s only a snippet. Off the top of my head. As I’m looking at it now, I’m fighting myself from adding more in fear of other bloggers being all “YOU LIKE ____ BUT YOU DON’T LIKE ____?!?” or “YOU FORGOT _____!!!” Ahh I know. But it was just to give you a little background as to what I like. I don’t know if you can tell, but from that list – I tend to favor certain directors (i.e. Alfred Hitchcock, Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan). I love story telling and I love characters. What I don’t like is heavy reliance on special effects and awful pretty-faced actors.

Now to get to the initial reason for this post, back to Oldboy. After viewing it, it kind of left me with the same feeling I had after watching Vertigo. You thought you knew what was coming and in the end, you had no idea!

It doesn’t just fool you once it fools you multiple times. See that’s what I love about movies. I’ve seen so many, these days I already know what’s going to happen before it happens because they seem to go by the same formula. But I like stories that grip me, that make me guess and make me forget what the normal routine of movie storylines and surprise me by the end.

I’m telling you Oldboy will do that. It’s revenge. The coldest dish I have ever seen served in a movie.

Warning: The movie is not for the faint of heart. There’s a fair share of disgusting violence. Scenes I wish they did not put in because of its blood,  carnage, and well something else but I can’t tell you without you watching it on your own.  Brace yourself. You might feel a little queasy at the end. And you probably should. With that being said, I cannot deny the story and I cannot deny the characters. It’s just that good. Don’t believe me? Check out the rottentomatoes review!  http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/oldboy/

So go see it! If you can.

I don’t know if they have it on  http://vodly.to
But if you can, today would be an awesome day. Especially for my fellow New Englanders.

This winter weather just won’t quit, man! 😦

And after you do – tell me what you think! 🙂 Also, I’d advise that you watch something light and funny after. You’ll see what I mean. LOL

Invisible Women

Yassss! Sum City gets it right!

SUM City

One of the biggest stories to captivate entertainment headlines this year has been the emergence of Lupita Nyong’o. Her Oscar winning performance as Patsey in 12 Years a Slave catapulted her to the forefront of the public eye. Once there, she has developed almost a second career as the Queen of the Red Carpet, appearing at film festivals looking flawless in stunning gowns that designers are falling over themselves to dress her in. This summer she landed the cover of People magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful issue. Her Oscar acceptance speech about what defines beauty sparked a wave of affirmation from women around the world who fight daily to be seen as attractive and desirable within themselves when bombarded constantly with a narrow standard of beauty. Lupita is the most recent black female star to explode into pop culture but obviously she isn’t the only one. From Michele Obama to Olivia…

Jealousy_Anti Feminist

But, seriously though. I’m talking about that pure, unadulterated jealousy. Not that, “Oh my gosh. S/he is so rich! I am so jealous!” When you admit it out loud like that, it’s not malicious. That cold and selfish jealousy I’m referring to, consists of ill-willed feelings and the celebration of other peoples’ failures. It’s dark and we shouldn’t allow ourselves to be overpowered by it.

I CAN NOT stand when women have a strong dislike or even hatred for other women, just because she’s another “pretty woman”. When I see how mean women are to each other, I just want to scream.

What is that? Why is that?
That SH*T feeds into that catty female stereotype.
It’s not just a woman thing. Men are guilty of it as well.

So you’re jealous of your co-worker’s relationship with the boss. It’s understandable, especially if your boss plays favorites. BUT don’t be PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE. In the past, I have been guilty of such feelings and passive-aggressive behavior but I learned that it got me ABSOLUTELY NOWHERE.

I’m tired of this mean-spirited behavior. Let’s all just love one another! Let’s all support the dreams and desires of others! Please? 😦
