Living Life Through Cinema

MOVIE NIGHT! (alone...)
Hard Candy - Ellen Page might be the most spectacular actress of her age. I was floored by her performance. At the time the movie was filmed she was 18, playing a 14 year old. After an internet conversation, this 14 year old "honor student", goes to meet the 30-something, Jeff, in coffee shop. This is definitely a movie that would be much better to watch without knowing the rest of the plot, so I'll stop there. I have to say that based upon the solid story, and talented cast, it is a must rent. For fans of raw thriller/soft-core horror movies, of the indie genre. Besides look how nice that poster is. Award winning i believe.
Beautiful. Truly stunning. Can she be my new girlfriend? She is just so cute.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban - This is the third Harry Potter movie, and i guess the third year back at Hogwarts. I'm not even going to bother giving a synopsis because pretty much everyone has either read the book, watched the movie or both. I on the other hand did not know the story at all until today. Without reading the books, i have nothing to compare the movie too, so i thought, as a PG movie, it was excellent. I have to say J.K. Rowling has written some good story lines. I like a story that has no filler. I felt as if everything in the movie had it's place. And there was a beginning, middle and end. Which most sequels are missing now. I hate open ended movies. I NEED CLOSURE. The movie was slightly darker then i remember the other movies, though it's been quiet a while since i saw the movie before this. It was nice to see a deeper look into fantasy. Werewolves, some horse/hawk thing (sorry i have no idea the name), crystal balls, shrunken heads. It was nice. But it's still no Lord of the Rings. =)

... and still, i haven't uploaded the pictures i wanted to. eventually i will get to it.
