Chapter 03 – the MEETING

Everything once so foggy, a mystery, suddenly became transparent, so clear. Leading up to my current demise. I need to finish, I need to try and change things. My time to explain, to justify myself is running out. I need more sand for my hourglass, but no one is selling any. So,

Where was I? I vaguely remembered going to a warehouse, It was my only clue to my disposition. I had to go back. The night was as sinister as an old Mozart song, fuel for one crazy voice in my head that had stopped talking, just for another to start. The vividness of another reality was pushing me further over the edge, living in a moment, suspended in a droplet of cold sweat. Getting images and feelings like I was someone’s dream and they were my nightmare, we took it in turns to witness each other’s lives only having a small part of the puzzle each. Freezing winds like sandpaper and razors, created an invisible wall of an intense smell that made me gag. I’ve thought that before, everything was far too familiar. It was colder than a hit and run, Hell had frozen over. But what is worse, the flames of hell or knowing there’s a larger evil to freeze it over. My cells were trapped behind the bars that had a code, sealing their fate to my pre-written destiny. Why am I here? I had liked that question before, when it was innocent. Ignorance was bliss. Suddenly this place kicked into high gear, someone walked over my grave and I was about to meet the maker that walked on it. What occurred before will come to pass again, the water will fall as the world cries, but I’ll still be here, looking for answers. I was sure I was at the place, out on a limb, out in the middle of nowhere, out of my mind. He was here to fill his hourglass with spent time from my life’s design. I was ready for the diabolical truth, But he said, ‘I need your help’, I couldn’t even help myself, let alone him.

My week with Marilyn

Hello

Just seen the film My week with Marilyn, it was ok, pretty good, but i don’t know much about her and her life. I didn’t know she was that physiologically scared, and for that it did give an insight. However this is what the film is, an insight, it is very aptly named because it only shows you a small window of her life and washes over any real detail of her. It’s like a taster to see if you want to know more and when i look at the film like that, it did pretty well.

If you are going to see this film wanted an in-depth breakdown of her life or even a piece as captivating as ‘the kings speech’, then you will be disappointed. If you go wanting a taster pop corn light movie then this is what is was.

The piece feels like it was trying to ‘light and airy’ and achieves this well, so it doesn’t feel like it tried to do something and failed or ended up being this way because of bad production, it feels it done what it set out to do, it hit the mark it was aiming for. I wasn’t bored but i wasn’t transfixed with any particular part either, but it has made me wanting to know more about her and why she was, the way she was, so, maybe it has done its job, left me wanting more.

50/50

Hello

Just seen the film 50/50. Don’t worry no spoilers but WOW, very impressed. I wanted to see this film and had a bit of expectation and it not only lived up to it but surpassed it as well, quite rare these days.

I think the main thing about the film is that it feels more ‘real’ than most, its doesn’t feel like a ‘concept’ they developed to get laughs or romantic set pieces, it flows more naturally together. Some of the laughs seem more funny because they have organically evolved from the situation, not from manipulation of the script to ‘get the laugh’ the seriousness of the piece feels genuine as well and so does the romantic element.

I was also very impressed with Seth Rogen’s role, he plays this very well, because i find him quite hit or miss in other titles. When i was at work i was talking to Graham and he said that this actually happened to Seth Rogen’s friends and he was playing the character with experience because it happened to him in real life.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt was very impressive, he keeps this up and he will be one to watch.

Overall very very solid movie, and as i was saying to someone, the budget of this compared to something like Tin Tin and its negligible, but outshines it in almost every way. . .because of the storyline (well not effects, but whats the point in them without story!)
