I just got back from watching HP3...and um...well, I don't honestly know how I feel about it. I enjoyed the film, however I read the books first and there were some changes that seriously urked me. I don't really want to write a review, I'll just let everyone determine their feelings about it after seeing it. I'll give it two grades, one as if I hadn't read the books at all, and the second as my honest booknerd reading grade. Oh by the way the guys who play the Weasley twins got really effing hot. ;)
Non-Book Grade: A
Booknerd Grade: B

Ah, so yesterday I caught the matinee of Van Helsing. Overall, the movie was pretty good minus the bad acting and bad accent of Miss Beckansale. No she was not the only bad actor/actress, but definately the worst. Anyways, I must say that I enjoyed seeing Faramir as a monk...excuse me, friar. I can't believe all of the teasers and trailers and what not that alluded to Gabriel's past wasn't exactly the one I and I'm sure others suspected. **NOTE: Spoiler coming** How bad ass would it have been if Dracula had be his daddy before he became a vampire? I mean Van Helsing's also an immortal so it could have been very possible. **end Spoiler** I'm not going to write a long review on it because I do suggest people see it strictly for Hugh Jackman and all of his hotness (badassness for the guys) as Gabriel Van Helsing.
I should have posted this before my last one, however...I didn't. Anyways, on to my thoughts about the conclusion of Kill Bill.
Volume 2 is a less gorry conclusion to Volume 1, and without so many flying body parts. I'm not going to give away the story in any way to those who have not seen it yet, except that The Bride does kill Bill. Anyways, I'm just going to say: Watch it or I'll pluck out your eyeball Pai Mei style. Naturally, Rated R for violence and language.

13 Going on 30
A chick flick starring Alias's Jennifer Garner as Jenna Rink (at age 30). This movie was actually pretty good. Cheesy at times, but overall good.
1987 - Jenna Rink invites the "Six Girls" to her 13th birthday party. They end up making Jenna do their project proposal so they won't have to spend all day "studying" and come to her party. After a disasterous "7 Minutes In Heaven" with Matt (her best friend), she makes a wish and wakes up as a 30 year old Poise Magazine editor...The hilarity ensues. Also she reconnects with Matt, who she apparantly had stopped talking to after her 13th bday. Anyways, I'm not going to drone on about the story, but I must say it made me laugh and cry and for all of the right reasons. I definately recommend this movie to: Teenagers, 20Somethings, and Couples (Date Movie). 13 Going on 30 is rated PG-13 for Language (not very much at all).
I can't believe after all of these years of doing my own blog I made a lj. Don't ask me why, for I am the Supreme Ruler and Overlord and no one questions my methods. Yeah ok so I honestly don't know why I made this, but I'll probably update it just like my current blog (www.rawkstar.org) except that this one will probably be easier for me to update. Yes, I'm keeping the site blog...just adding another one to it. So maybe I'll make this my game/movie review blog? Actually that's not a bad idea. Hmmm....
