Movie mania - My Razored Flesh — LiveJournal
Angels bleed from the tainted touch of my caress
Movie mania
Saw two movies recently. 

Monday night I saw National Treasure it was ok, not great.  I have seen better films, and how the main character is able to link clues together is a little too easy.
But, I would say it'd still be worth while to see it on the big screen, maybe in the second run theaters.

Last night I saw Alexander directed by Oliver Stone.  It was a 3 hour movie.  The costuming was excellent, but the plot dragged several times, they also cut out the full frontal nudity that everyone kept talking about, sorry ladies, you only get to see Colin Farrell's ass.  Also there was a flash back sequence that could have easily been put in earlier in the movie where it belonged, considering the movie starts with Alexander as a young child.  But, as elspethnoir pointed out, it's an Oliver Stone-ism.
This movie is only worth seeing on the big screen for some of the big battle scenes, which are actually not that frequent, so yeah, wait for the second run theaters again, and only go if you have the patience to sit through a 3 hour movie.

So anyway, I was kinda disappointed in both films.  I'm glad we only had to pay for National Treasure.

Prevailing Condition: annoyed annoyed

Non sequitur, but what's a girl to do?

Your email address was not up, so here is the, "Hello, my name is..." post to you from someone you don't even know.

I saw your post on clove_addicts.

I can't tell you how much I love smokers, particularly clove smokers. And you live where I live. Even better. Are you a club goer? Perhaps we know some common people/places.

Just thought I'd introduce myself, and try to make new friends... because, you know, Goths are so antisocial and all.


P.S.: Nice fucking claws. >) You should see mine.

Re: Non sequitur, but what's a girl to do?

Well, hello, bleedings and salivations. I don't mind strangers posting, it let's me get to know new people.

I live in downtown chicago, a block from city hall. Yes, I frequent a few clubs, primarily Neo and Exit, occasionally Vision and where ever whiplash is. I would not be surprised if we have seen eachother at the clubs.

I have friended you, add me back if you like. I like to consider myself a social goth, although I don't readily introduce myself to people. (unless I have had a few drinks first) ;)

Ooooo. You have claws too? I've shown you mine, now let's see yours. ;)

Three hour movies are fine as long as they're good ones. I still like watching Independence Day.

Sadly, I've gotten rather used to being claw-less. :(

My nails have not been growing well, although, I have not changed my diet, so I don't know. Although, I have not repainted them, as I still have more movie stuff to do, and I can't have painted nails as a bodyguard.
