i'm good!

Comic scenario...

"Hi, I'm Ang Lee, and I'd like to make the Hulk movie."

"Oh, alright, Mr. Lee. Now, what have you done previous to wanting to do the Hulk."

"You know, a little of this, a little of that. I did 'Sense and Sensability', 'The Ice Storm' and 'The Wedding Banquet', to name a few. 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' was me too."

"I see. So, what do you think you know about making a comic book hero movie, exactly?"

"Oh, I dunno. Everything, I'd say."


At least, I'd like to imagine it that way. If he'd said that, he'd be absolutely right. The only other comic book hero movie to even be put in the same league as this film is the original Batman movie. It's brilliant. Even flawless, I'd say. Everything that Spider-Man wanted to be and failed at, especially by comparison.

I loved it. So it makes me sad to know that it will fail, box-office-wise. I felt the majority of the audience was lost on the movie, you can always tell by the misplaced laughter. With the wrong expectations, or maybe even some of the right ones, people may be disappointed, I suppose.

I wasn't. Then again, I thought "Signs" was a brilliant film, so I know some of you are not inclined to agree with my opinionations. Too bad, though, because you can't stop me from loving this movie, and recommending it to anyone who wants to see what I saw in it.

Smashing good movie ^_^

Starting to realize...

I don't think I'll ever be able to listen to the Flaming Lips album "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots" without thinking of Faye now.

It's amazing how much someone can really touch your life without ever even meeting them.

I think I need to go home, now..
