Avatar: Simply amazing

So I went to go see Avatar today in 3D. I knew there was much hype over the movie but wasn't really excited to see it. But to my surprise it was probably one of the most amazing movies I have watched in years! The special effects are incredible it was like nothing I had ever seen. It was visually an amazing movie and to back it up with an actually well played out love story. The movie is way much than an action packed blockbuster. It was like being taken into a different world, and I totally got into the love story of it all. Along with how the film emphasizes the importance of nature and connecting with all living things. Avatar brings so much to the table and I am glad I got out and saw it! Anyone doubting to see it please do and DON'T wait until its on DVD, I think what makes it so spectacular is that its on big screen in 3D. If I get a chance I would definitely see it again in imax.

500 days of summer vs paper heart

Since I have been home I have spent most of my time catching up on the movies I have been wanting to see since the summer time. I finally got to see 500 days of summer and paper heart, two movies that I need for my inner indie love story fix. Since they both kinda are about the same thing Love and if it is real and true love, all that crap I thought I would do a quick review of the two!

I was really excited to see 500 days of summer! I think mostly because I find Joseph Gordon-Levitt attractive and I like Zooey Deschanel. So I figured two attractive and cute people could make a cute love story. But I should have known in the first 5 minutes when they said this wasn't a love story that I was gonna get disappointed. The film had some cute moments but a majority of it was this kid losing it over this girl that said straight up she wasn't looking for a boyfriend. So Of coarse he got played and was mad and confused for the other half of the movie. And I was like why is she messing with his head, hes obviously feeling you and hes a shawty! But in end she got married out of now where to some other guy, snap sorry for the spoiler. All that the movie taught me was that sometimes you have to stay with someone you kinda like until you find someone you love. Thanks 500 days of summer, for nothing.

Ahhh yes and now Paper heart. A documentary I guess about a documentary, not completely sure. But Charlyne Yi who doesn't believe in love, goes around the country with her crew asking the question what is love and does it exist. Of coarse along the way she meets Michael Cera and she does kinda fall in love. Its really cute, like so cute my heart wanted to blow up. Charlyne Yi and Michael Cera are so awkward yet adorable and it was cool watching her travel around the country and meeting all the different people along the way. Also the end, that wasn't really an ending was clever.

So I give it toooooo, PAPER HEART for furfilling my indie love story movie fix. Ef you 500 days of summer, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt you are still a shawty!

My next movie to watch is district 9, way different vibe, its probably gonna scare the crap out of me.

Kinda obsessed with Animal Collective

So I may be late with this one but recently I have really got into Animal Collective. Many people have asked me if I listen to them and I always said I would check them out but never really did. They're music may seem a little cracked out, but I that's the point. Especially since its a band that originated as friends who essentially are experimenting with music and sound yet foremost are just enjoying creating art. Below I have my favorite song by them right now.

I am back!

So I must say I have made the hiatus of the century, and I will be surprised if anyone is still following me cause I would have gave up as well. But trust me with the end of school and figuring out next semester there was no way! But I am done, finally and am officially studying abroad in Capetown next semester. Which will makes things much more interesting. I am very and excited and nervous. But as my apology for my long time away I have a little video to make you giggle.
