Weeds

allo world. i know its been a while for me…

but i would like to write a short review for an amazing tv show i got addicted to… which is fairly amazing considering…i dont ever watch tv. obviously, i watched the season online. thanks to the wonderful people that post the seasons for free hoping that fans will click on their useless gambling commercials.:D

so..weeds is a show about Nancy Botwin, a mother of two who has recently lost her husband to a random heart attack, and must support her kids, maid, and brother-in-law in the suburbs. Since a regular job wouldn’t yield nearly enough to pay the bills, Nancy sells weed! Needless to say, this unconventional career comes with many dangers and surprises. The show is really funny as as well as suspenseful. I started watching the first episode, and before I knew it, I had finished the 5th season…and no, it’s not just a chick show.

LOVE IT,

“Iron Man” – Review

Hollywood has a terrible habit of making terrible movies out of comics, just look at Fantastic 4, Hulk and Daredevil. Knowing this, I had a low feeling in my stomach going into the movie theater. This movie looked so freaking awesome, if Hollywood ruined it I would be very upset to say the least. Thankfully, they did not. It’s not like Robert Downey Jr. could be in a bad movie anyways, right?

That said, if you’re going to watch this movie (and you are), don’t expect an Oscar performance, even though Downey’s portrayal of Stark is fantastic. Expect some damn nice CGI, a really likeable anti-hero turned hero, and some classic superhero moments. There are even some bits of solid humour peppered in (pun intended, you’ll see).

If you’re a nerd, such as myself, this movie is not going to disappoint. Technology is everywhere, and it’s not vomit-inducing futuristic crap like usual, it’s mostly fairly viable stuff that works like expected, but overall gives an impression of advanced living. It’s always nice to see a superhero like Batman who doesn’t become awesome by a freak accident, or alien parents, but works hard and earns it.

Overall: go watch it, it doesn’t disappoint. Hint: stay after the credits to see something … something.

Die Falscher – The Counterfeiters

If you’re only going to see one foreign movie this year, you’re an idiot. See more. Make one them this one: “The Counterfeiters. It won an Oscar, but you probably didn’t know because you were too busy laughing at Stewart making jokes about Angelina Jolie’s many children.

Die Falscher Cover

Die Falscher is a story of Salomon Sorowitsch, the Jewish king of counterfeiting, the greatest money/document faker in the world, who was put into a concentration camp. Thanks to his incredible talent, one of the Nazi officers (ironically, the one who arrested him for his crimes) assembled a team of artists to make counterfeit copies of british and american currencies, in what was the biggest counterfeiting operation in the world. This movie rocks. It’s not gruesome (much) it has some smart humour, but mostly it’s a brilliant drama, about the dilemma of surviving, or dying for a greater cause. See it. NOW!

Tarragon – How it Works

alright well, today was another day of play watching for myself and my plays of the modern era class. Once again it was at Tarragon theatre, which never fails to give us amazing deals and incredible performances.

Tonight’s play is called “How it Works” and it is about the experiences of a young lady of 19 during tough stages of drug abuse and the attempt to quit. At the same time, she must deal with her parents’ past divorce, and her father’s new woman. Brooke continously attempt to step away from the real world through drugs and we soon discover that there is much more to her past than any of us knew. Does this justify her need for relief in the form of drugs?

Now..what did i think about it? Well, comparing it to some of the other plays we have already seen at Tarragon, it was simply okay for me. The acting (especially that of Brook) was really amazing and the set was unique in the way that it allowed to audience to concentrate on the acting and the personalities onstage instead of the details of the set. However, the story itself was alot less than what I expected, but that’s probably because i have read many extreme drug addict stories. In a way, I felt like this play was written/directed (same person did both) by someone who did not actually go through the experience but tried their best to represent it in the best way possible. Although the play itself is supposed to be more about family bonds, and the ability of a sudden stranger to change one’s life, i would have liked to have seen more intense scenes of her drug abuse and their concequences. In any case, it was still a well-done canadian play that deserves much respect and is still worth every penny.

you should definitely check it out, the play runs until dec 16. for more info, see http://www.tarragontheatre.com/season0708/show-how_it_works.php

The Pillowman

Today, myself and the rest of the grade 12 english or english-related classes in our school went to see a play at Berkeley Street Theatre. It was the most amazing play-watching experience of my life. The story was so incredibly twisted, cruel and funny at the same time that in the end, you’re left in shock, wonder, and complete amazement. The extremes and the humour get tangled together to create a sensational piece. Not to mention, the acting was fantastic!! Honestly.., even if you never watch plays, just try to get a seat to this show because it is unlike any horror movie you have ever seen. It is 1000 times better and I have never been so shocked watching a play (more-so than benevolence). It’s worth every penny, and more! here’s a review, taken from the website: http://moderntheatre.suite101.com/article.cfm/the_pillowman_review
