That's right folks! For Love of the Cake has finally updated! Chapter 13 is all ready for you to read and enjoy. It is officially my creative spirit has not died...however my enthusiasm for the story might have. I feel like I need a fresh start and well I just feel like I'm not expanding my art by continuing the story. On the other hand other people seem to like the story...so a part of me wants to continue the story for them. I'm not sure what's going to happen so stay tuned!
As far as personal stuff...I'm still looking for work. That's pretty much it. You'd think it would be easy this time of year but...
Since last I posted a journal I have finally caught up and finished reading all of the Song of Fire and Ice books. I've read them all this past year and when I do my best of the year stuff. So now I'm checking out all the fan theories...and there are a lot...maybe I need a new hobby.
I had a little cold today but I think I will get over it quickly. Sigh...that time of year.
I'm nearing 5,000 views...if you can prove to me you are my 5,000th viewer or close enough you'll get a prize! It will probably be I write you a story. Or if you choose I can draw something very, very, badly.
And now movie reviews! There might be spoilers so...watch out for that.
I don't know why this movie has gotten so much flack. Is it amazing? Absolutely not. Is it fun? That is a big yes. I laughed a lot so that's a plus in my book. It is kind of like Men in Black. But don't write it off just because it is a little bit of a knock off. Jeff Bridges shows us that after his incredible turn in True Grit that he can also play a funny cowpoke. Ryan Reynolds is...well himself. Kevin Bacon was pretty darn good but I liked his bad guy in Super better than the one here. James Hong, who played David Lo Pan in Big Trouble in Little China is great in his small role here. The plot is predictable but predictable doesn't always mean that a movie is terrible. I'll rate it 2.5 out of five undead spirits.
I had been looking forward to Red 2 for a year or so...It wasn't terrible but it was by no means as good as the first one. They were just trying too hard and trying to do too much with frankly a weak plot. The older people being cool action heroes thing kinda went out the window too with some major characters being a decade or more younger than the returning cast members from the original. There's also the pointless characters...I mean you can take entire people and the the chunks of filler plot (like I said the plot was weak) that go with them right out of the movie. They also really mellowed Malkovich basically turning him into a cross between Mary-Louise Parker's gal-pal and a relationship guru for Bruce Willis. If you're a fan of the first one then you should see it because it does occasionally capture the fun of that film. If you are going to watch one sequel movie staring Bruce Willis this year (there are three of them and they are the only movies he's in this year) then I'd probably tell you to see this one. 2 bullet holes out of 5.
I loved this movie. It was just about the Wolverine movie I had been waiting for. The action is phenomenal though it is better in 2D than 3D. Jackman is at the top of his game. The effects are far and away better than in the first Wolverine movie. I mean remember those terrible claws? Those are replaced by awesome ones both of metal and bone. The new characters are interesting especially the two main women. If you're a fan of Marvel or even just action check this one out.
Ones I will review later...I have seen them already...Big movie year for me!
