The Neverending Story & The Dark Crystal

Was reminded of how much I loved these movies when I was a kid.

I should watch them again sometime.

Old Movies

There’s something about old 60’s/70’s movies that makes me love them. I can’t really say why, they just do. I’ve been running this sort of old movie marathon and all I can think of is how most of the time I enjoy them a hell of ¬†a lot more than recent ones.

I remember when I was a kid spending entire weekend afternoons watching movies on TV and for some reason those days seemed to last longer and packed with great stuff on the tube. I can’t really put this into words so I won’t keep trying.

I don’t remember much about my childhood, people usually say this is because I had a happy childhood and I think that’s true. But sitting on my living room’s couch watching movies is a vivid clear memory I have. My parents even bought me a VHS VCR eventually and that was a big deal at the time. Those things were expensive! From then on I became a regular at the local movie rental place. I don’t remember how the ladies at the counter looked like but I do remember they were always nice to me and usually greeted me with a smile every time they saw me.

Priest & Stake Land

You know when sometimes you start watching a movie thinking it’s going to be rather cheesy and you’re generally just in it for the fun of watching things explode and monsters cut into pieces and then the movie is actually one of the best you’ve seen lately? Yeah.. That happened to me twice in the past week.

I began watching Priest with a pre-defined notion it was “vampire ass kicking movie” with Paul Bettany and I pretty much like everything he’s in. Turns out there’s so much more to the movie than that. The plot sounds like the cheesiest thing ever but they actually pull it off quite nicely. I was reminded of two movies while watching it, Blade Runner and Equilibrium. The cityscape is one of the most beautiful I’ve seen in a while and the action isn’t bad either. Granted it’s an action movie, lots of it going on, but this movie has lots of eye candy as well. I really recommend it.

The other one was Stake Land. Nothing in imbd’s page prepared me for the great movie this turned out to be. It’s no masterpiece, but it’s one of the best horror¬†flicks I’ve seen in a long while. The acting is great, the scenery is awesome, the story is compelling with some twists in it that made me go “Whoa.” and I really felt sad when some of the stuff on there happened (no spoilers!). To put it simply, if you’re a horror fan you have to see it. You know that feeling you got when you saw 28 Days Later and thought to yourself that was a damn good movie? Watch this one then :)

One year uptime, Rift and some other stuff

No idea what was the exact day I bought the domain/hosting and started working on this site as a hobby, but it’s been roughly a year now. I know this because I had to renew it all, sometimes I wonder if it’s worth it since I end up spending quite some time without paying any attention to it. I guess that’s the nature of such sites :)

Been spending a *lot* of time playing Rift, I’m quite amazed how good something I’ve never heard of till about a couple of months ago can be. Couple of guys I know mentioned the open beta was up and I tried it. A few hours after I found myself buying it. I had recently restarted playing WoW but as soon as the month’s subscription ended I was finding myself really bored with it and Rift was entering it’s head start for pre-order customers. Perfect timing. Dragon Age 2 is supposed to be coming out too, that’s another one to check out.

Haven’t spent much time around my Spica as of lately, which is just as well since development for the Cyanogenmod Spica beta seems to have come to a halt. Probably because everything’s working quite well and it really shouldn’t be called a beta anymore. Been using the 8.3 beta for a few months now and it’s working like a charm.

Also, saw Tron Legacy the other day. Awesome sauce.
