And Just Like That, Halloween Is Over

*snap*

And just like that, Halloween is over. This makes me sad. However me and Blake had a good time last night. We walked the neighborhood and he got a ton of candy. Both of us have a mild sugar hangover this morning, but we are doing well. Good times.

You know, I’ve said this a million times, but it bears repeating: Halloween is not for kids, it is for parents of kids or adults who are of the young of heart. I love dressing up myself and taking Blake out to get candy. It is the current highlight of my year. However he’ll be ten next year and may not want to go out. I guess I’m just going to have to have kids myself.

DragonGate, we need to talk. :p

Speaking of DragonGate, I think I will join her in NaNoWriMo this year. I am not going to open an account on NaNoWriMo’s site, I am just going to write. Completely informal. And I have been thinking of writing a Doctor Who fanfic. I know I said that I am done with fanfiction, but since I have been thinking of doing NaNoWriMo this year, a Doctor Who story has sprang up in my head and I can’t get over it. If I can pound out the first 1,667 words today, I will commit to the full thing for the rest of the month.

(UPDATE): Well, that was a let-down. I wrote this and then I had to do other stuff. Oh well. I’m actually thankful this happen, I wasn’t really interested in writing fanfiction again.

Well, see ya’ later!

Anything Can Happen On Halloween

Indeed.

I got this awesome silver skull mask some time ago at Walmart and it has held up pretty good. Couple my new dress jacket I got over the last year and with the current Occupy Wall Street protests going on, I am “dressing up” as a Wall Street Banker. The only thing I am missing is a briefcase (full of guts), maybe next year.

Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing personal against Wall Street people. In fact, this is me protesting against the Occupy Wall Street people. They are socialists and I like freedom, so I am totally at odds with those protesters. If they want a boggy-man, I’ll give them one.

UPDATE: Just got this video. Amazing. Worth every minute. May be next year’s Halloween post.

Well, see ya’ later!

Ichi The Killer

I just watched the a movie the other night. It was a Japanese flick, so you know it is all kinds of messed up. It is call Ichi The Killer.

I believe the film makers asked the question: “Can there be too much violence in one film?”

And the movie asked a question of its own to the film makers in response: “There can be too much violence in a movie???”

Everyone (except maybe two) in this movie is evil and completely unsympathetic. You quickly realize that even the titular character Ichi, played by the wonderful Nao Omori, is not as innocent as he first seems and needs to die along with everyone else. Sailor played by Mai Goto and Kaneko played by inspiring Hiroyuki Tanaka, are the only ones you wish/hope make it out of this one alive. They of course both die at the hands of Ichi.

When Ichi kills crime boss Anjo, Kakihara, played by the multi-talented Tadanobu Asano, causes mayhem thoughout the city to find out what happen and later find Ichi. Kakihara is (self and otherwise) muliated and is a psychopatic killer. He loves getting it as much as he likes dishing it out. Ichi is also a psychopath, but is manipulated by this dude Jijii, played by Shinya Tsukamoto. However you find out that even Ichi is unredeemable and Jijii is just as bad, if not worse, as the so-called bad guys. I won’t write a full synopsis, because you can read a great one on wiki link above.

Did I like it? By the end of the movie, you root for everyone to die in horrible ways. The people behind the film agrees and so they do indeed kill everyone. At some points in the movie, it doesn’t know if it wants to take itself seriously or not. I watched it because there happen nothing else on at time. It is ultra-violent, so don’t watch it if that is not your thing. Clearly you want to keep kids away, as this is not their kind of movie either.

Yes, I liked this movie. While I ended up not caring for any of the characters in the film (except Kaneko), I found the tale of unapologetic mayham refreshing. This is a horror film and should be treated and viewed as such. The fact that is so close to Halloween most likely put me into the right mood for such a movie. While repulsive and shocking in some scenes, I liked the SAW series of films and so it’s honestly nothing I haven’t already seen. I am also often a fan of both Japanese and British cinema. While not every movie from those countries are good, I try to catch films from both nations if I can (I’m also a big fan of Dr Who) and give them an honest shot.

Well, see ya’ later!
