Quote brought to you by “Planet Terror”, the most awesome zombie movie. (The best one is “28 days later”.)
Okay, since the last I blogged, as in wrote several hundreds of words, I’ve turned 16 years old. Unfortunately, 16 isn’t an important birthday here in France. Okay, I can officially buy cigarettes, but I don’t smoke. (And never will. I’m firmly against smoking.) And there’s no legal drinking age, but you have to 18 to buy alcohol. But you have to 18 to drive here. Well, at 16 you can drive… If one of your parents is with you.
Anyway, I don’t really care. I’m just saying 16 here doesn’t mean much. (Unlike in America…) Moving on to movies I’ve seen recently:
- The Day After Tomorrow: It was amazing. I love disaster movies like that because a)they’re very impressive and b)it could actually happen. There’s no magic involved. And I love seeing how people managed to survive in those kinds of situations. (Hence my love of zombie movies.) Like many have said before me, although worded better: We humans are capable of a lot.
- The Scent of Green Papaya: It was… Well, boring to be honest. It was a very slow movie, with hardly any dialogue, and that 1h40 felt a lot longer, but I have to admit, it did have a beautiful ambiance, very peaceful and quiet. If you’re really into movies and can appreciate that sort of thing, then go ahead and watch it. Oh, it’s in Vietnamese. But don’t let that stop you.
- Heathers: Wow. I have to say I watched the movie without any expectations, but I did not think it’d be so…dark. If you like 80’s teen movies, WATCH IT. Plus, it’s very quotable. (What do you mean you’re not going to watch it? What’s your damage?)
- Bloodrayne 2: Deliverance: Okay, so I’ve only seen half of it, and there’s a reason for that: it’s boring. Although the Bloodrayne movies aren’t great movies, at least with the first one I watched it all the way through without finding reasons to pause it. The dialogue is crap and it’s quite boring. I doubt I’ll even finish watching it…
- Skin: An amazing, true story about Sandra Laing. (Don’t have the time to write more about it.)
I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve barely done anything writing-wise these past 2 months. I’ve worked on my script (added a lot to scene 10), written a poem, a few words for my novel… And that’s it. Oh, here’s my twitter account for the movie: http://twitter.com/KayloMovies
“An Unexpected Blood Relative” – a movie by Kayleigh
This is, obviously, the script I just mentioned. It’s got 12 scenes and is 9 pages long. Because I lack money, a proper and crew, I can’t make a proper movie, but whatever.
