Say yes #2

My mind has changed
my body’s frame but god I like it
my hearts aflame
my body’s strained but god I like it

If we all went back to another time
I will love you over, I will love you over, I will love you

Movies I've watched recently:

  • Veronica Mars (2014) - IMDb 1/10

    While I laud the filmmakers for gathering the money required through Kickstarter, that's the only good thing about it. I liked the TV series. I've heard people saying this film would be like a long version of an episode, but I don't agree. This film is a collection of old characters popping up in ways that only crave attention. Logan is boring. Veronica quips one-liners in an irritating way and the plot is wafer thin. It could have been that thin and still worked, but this time, everything is _dated_. If I had a nickel for every time they mention Twitter, Instagram, Kickstarter (!), Samsung tablets and other social media stuff and tech I'd be rich now. I zoned out a lot of times during the run of this film. And every time I returned, I only wished that the film had ended. An hour and a half can feel like a really long time once you're in front of this; do something worthwhile with your time, like getting car jacked or putting out a camp fire with your face.

  • Jiro Dreams of Sushi (2011) - IMDb 5/10

    Even though this film is elegantly made and a sheer tribute to Jiro, the man who is the focus of this film, it lacks in some areas: there is no critique of Jiro, or of the antifeministic concepts, or of other moral aspects, for example, where one of his chefs points the finger at too much fishing that'll kill animals, while their whole business consists of killing and serving animals. Still, it's good to see somebody who's so at the top of their game and is still prone to self critique.

  • Kill Your Darlings (2013) - IMDb 3/10

    2014-03-02 13:53
    * * *

    Despite some promising and a couple of likable scenes - especially the end credits with The Libertines' "Don't Look Back Into The Sun" playing - this film is mostly a bric-a-brac of happenings, ideas that should have been moulded either with more care or with more of what made Burroughs, Ginsberg, Carr and their kin big. As is, it's messy and forgettable.

  • Dallas Buyers Club (2013) - IMDb 7/10

    2014-03-01 22:38
    * * * * * * *

    Even though I feel that this film doesn't delve too far into the personalities, both Leto and McConaughey perform very well, and I love T. Rex as the soundtrack a lot of the time. Sadness, bureaucracy and Big Pharma, all the way towards an early grave.

  • August: Osage County (2013) - IMDb 7/10

    2014-03-01 15:36

    This is family drama that I could relate to; Meryl Streep as a pill-popping matriarch, is prone to endlessly blaming her children for all things bad while reigning supreme in martyrland. The start features her husband going missing. Add the fact that all of their kids and their spouses and others are along for the ride, and the recipe for disaster is there, and it's a very entertaining result. Very worth your while. I really wonder how they pulled this, originally a stage play, off as a movie.

“The Rain” by Dorothea Lasky

What is going to happen
Is that it’s going to rain

Rain my love
A poem not about sex

But love
The true kind

You talk of things
To myself and others

You think of things
Her long tanned arms

You will realize you love me
But it will be too late

This is not a wish
But what I knew to be so

This is what I knew to be so
Under the pouring sun

This is what I knew to be so
Under the pouring sea

Where they will find us
You and me

So tall I take over the street with high-beams shining on my back
A wingspan unbelievable, I’m a festival, I’m a parade

And all the wine is all for me

All safe and sound
I won’t let the psychos around

I’m in a state, I’m in a state
Nothing can touch us, my love
I’m in a state, I’m in a state
Nothing can touch us, my love
