I want you guys to help me rearrange my room for most room/efficiency, Help me out!! I will post pictures if I end up rearranging my room according to someones idea!

Day 30 – Your favorite movie of all time
I honestly cant decide on one movie, so I will split this between Requiem for a Dream and No Country for Old Men. I've already talked about both of these movies, I love them both, that is all. Movie challenge done! woo.

Saturday, June 11, 2011


I'm just going to start this post by announcing that NPH is awesome. And I think it's funny that he plays such a hardcore womanizer in pretty much everything he acts in..but he's gay. If I ever got a tattoo, it would probably be a picture of him with the caption WWNPHD (What would Neil Patrick Harris do?). Anyways, Almost done with this movie challenge. So far I'd say the challenge has been okay, although the questions are usually pretty vague and I ended choosing movies that are probably on everyone elses list. This movie challenge has made me not want to blog as much anymore, and that sucks, so as soon as its over (Tomorrow), I'll start posting some more actual content.

Day 26 – A movie that you love but everyone else hates
I'm going to switch this one around to "A movie that you hated but everyone else loves"
District 9 (2009)


Neill Blomkamp 1/10
I don't know why I hate this movie so much but I do. I went and seen this in theaters like most of my friends had. It was one of most boring things I've ever had to sit through. The biggest thing that annoyed me was how it was filmed like a documentary. When this movie is deep in, I find myself lost, It seems to switch randomly from documentary to actual movie. What really annoys me is when there is the big fight scene (EXPLOSIONS YEAH!!!), there are suddenly news helicopters everywhere that seem to notice everything. I thought it was a big mess, but everyone seems to think of it as an amazing Sci Fi movie. Runner up would be True Grit (2010).

Day 27 – A movie that you wish you had seen in theaters
No Country for Old Men (2007)


Ethan Coen, Joel Coen 10/10
This could be my favorite movie, I love it. I don't even know where to start on why I like it. This movie is so suspenseful that it is pretty difficult at some parts to watch. And instead of using the typical scary music, these scenes have no music at all. It is brilliant in my opinion. Another aspect that made me really like this movie is the villain. The villain is so evil looking, and his funny haircut just shows how alienated he is from society. The movie does end on a weird note, but I don't want to spoil anything, watch this movie!

Day 28 – Favorite movie from your favorite director
Boogie Nights (1997)


Paul Thomas Anderson 10/10
At this point, I don't really have a favorite director, but for now I'll choose Paul Thomas Anderson. I first heard about this movie in 2009, which I know, is pretty late. Obviously, I'm going to love a movie about  porn stars especially during the 70s. What really is amazing about this movie are the long uncut scenes. This makes the parties look real and full of life and its amazing that PTA did this. Good movie, watch it.

Day 29 – A movie from your childhood
The Jungle Book (1967)


Wolfgang Reitherman 10/10
There were a lot of movies I considered before choosing The Jungle Book but this movie stood out. It's so happy and full of life. I wish I could sing with a bear about the bear necessities.

Lazy 22/23/24/25

This picture pretty much sums up what I've been doing with my summer. I am willing to bet that there is no one lazier then me. I stay up all night playing games, then I sleep all day, just to wake up and take a nap. I amaze even myself sometimes. Who else wakes up around 3-4 PM? Haha anyways, here are 4 days of movie challenges I was too lazy to do that day.

Day 22 – Favorite documentary
Super High Me (2007)


Michael Blieden 10/10
I definitely love documentaries. I've watched many, from Gas Land to Esoteric Agenda. But my favorite documentaries are the ones about weed. Super High Me is about Doug Benson's test with weed. It is slightly similar to Super Size Me, with things being done in 30 day tests. First is 30 days with no weed, or anything else, including alcohol. Then after that, He has to smoke weed for 30 days straight, pretty much being high 24/7. It's not really as informative as others, but it's pretty damn entertaining.

Day 23 – Favorite animation
Wall-E (2008)


Andrew Stanton 10/10
I watched Wall-E sometime in 2010 because at one point, I did not trust animated movies. I thought they were childish movies for kids. Once I seen Wall-E, my mind was changed. I never knew that there could be GOOD animated movies. Wall-e is everything, scary, funny, and completely interesting. I will always mension this movie whenever talking about good animated films with friends or in class, or whatever the situation. Another favorite would also be Up.

Day 24 – That one awesome movie idea that still hasn’t been done yet
Not really to sure what to do for this, but I'm still waiting for an epic movie that has to do with trains and the sun exploding. Thats my awesome movie idea =D
Day 25 – The most hilarious movie you’ve ever seen
Airplane! (1980) 10/10

Directed by
Jim Abrahams 
David Zucker 
Jerry Zucker
The comedy genre is probably my favorite of all types of movies. So I watch ALOT of comedies. This movie has no contest in my opinion. It's brilliant, and all the cheesy things they add just make it that much better. The repeated things make this movie even funnier. "I just want to tell you both good luck. We're all counting on you.Every time I hear that quote, I crack up and start laughing. Watch this movie!

APB and 18/19/20/21

I've been real lazy about posting blogs and even things like texting people back, and thats because I've been playing APB Reloaded. For those of you who have no idea what it is, it's a really bad ass game. When I describe it to people, I usually say it is like GTA (Grand Theft Auto) if it was an MMO. The graphics are fantastic as well, even on the minimal graphics setting, it still looks really good. And like all MMO's, there are two sides. There are the Enforcers and the Criminals. The enforcers are pretty much licensed vigilantes while criminals are just criminals. I am of course a criminal because, come on, obeying the law is pretty lame. Right now APB is in Open Beta, and it is free to play, so I recommend trying it out. Add me, I'm on the US West server and my name is waa97. Here is the APB Reloaded blog : and here is what you need to download to get started :

Day 18 – A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen
Let the Right One In (2008)


Tomas Alfredson 10/10
This is definitely a movie that I wish had been seen. This movie came out the same year as Twilight and was pretty much unheard of. And of course it didn't help that this is a foreign film. This is a good vampire movie, believe it or not, and I wish that it had been recognized instead of terrible films like Twilight. This movie is pretty brutal at points, and the acting is great. The movie Let Me In (2010) is actually a remake of Let the Right One In, and although I didn't actually see it myself, I heard the remake was good as well, so I recommend watching them both.

Day 19 – Favorite movie based on a book/comic/etc.
Fight Club (1999)


David Fincher 10/10
Fight club is one of my favorite movies so it is no surprise I choose it for favorite movie based on a book/comic. I liked this movie so much that I actually bought the book that the movie was based on. This movie has so many subtle hints about whats actually going, it's brilliant directing in my eyes. For those who haven't seen this movie, Edward Norton plays an insomniac who eventually creates a cult with Brad Pitt's character Tyler Durden (who is a total badass btw).

Day 20 – Favorite movie from your favorite actor/actress
American History X (1998)


Tony Kaye 10/10
If I had to choose a favorite actor, I would choose Edward Norton. Fight Club and American History X are two of my favorite movies. It's fitting that Day 19 and 20 happened to end up with two Edward Norton movies. Whenever I talk about actors with friends, I always choose Edward Norton and feel amazing until someone mentions The Incredible Hulk, which doesn't count in my head.. This movie has the famous curb stomp scene, and it makes me cringe every time.

Day 21 – Favorite action movie
Boondock Saints (1999)


Troy Duffy 10/10
I'm not really a fan of action movies. Have you ever heard, the more helicopters in a movie, the worse it is? Well almost every action movie that comes out now of days has a ton of helicopters or even worse; EXPLODING helicopters. Boondock Saints isn't anything like that, it's actually good! This is an amazing shooter movie. These two brothers pretty much have an epiphany from god to rid their town of evil men. That might sound cheesy, but when you see some of the epic scenes from this movie, you'd love it just as much as me.

So I was just browsing the internet, and a concerned parent asked if Jenkem was a codename for weed or a drug, as her kid had said something about it in an IM. I'm so surprised at what I found. It is definitely not marijuana, I'm not sure what to even call it. According to the fox news video I linked down below, it is often called 'Butt Hash'.
Jenkem is an alleged hallucinogenic recreational drug composed of noxious gas formed from fermented sewage
 After searching a little more, I found an actual recipe for Jenkem from an anonymous source.

Warning: This mixture has been known to produce extreme hallucinations, vomiting, and/or diarrhea.
Tetralyte is produced by mixing fecal matter and the fatty acids found in beef.

-Ground Beef (30% Lean)
-Fecal Matter
-Pineapple Juice, Lemon Juice, Urine
-Squeeze fat from beef into small bowl
-Mix with fecal matter and place in cooking pot
-Put on stove at high heat for 5 minute while slowly stirring in the juice/urine
-Remove from burner and immediately pour into air-tight container
-Attach balloon or other expandable device to capture gas

Sounds delicious right? I guess it feels similar to taking Cocaine. Apparently all subjects who have used Jenkem disliked the taste of shit in their mouth and the fact that the taste lasted for several days.

Other names : Winnie, Shit, Runners, Butthash, Waste, Devil's Chocolate, Cheese, Fruit from Crack Pipe, Leroy Jenkems (I lol'd), and Might.

Day 15 – A character who you can relate to the most

The Big Lebowski (1998)
Directed by
Joel Coen
Ethan Coen
I seriously love this movie, its pretty much a perfect comedy. I would say I relate to The Dude. I'm just as lazy as him, and the only 'sport' I do really is bowling. He pretty much doesn't care what other people think, and I love that. Just like him and his robe, I'll walk into a store with pajamas on, get what I want, drink it on the way to the counter haha. Dude.

Day 16 – A movie that you used to love but now hate
Kick-Ass (2010)


Matthew Vaughn 5/10
I went to see Kick-Ass with a friend of mine at the movies. I thought it was great, what I really liked were the scenes of violence, especially the warehouse scene, which blew my mind at the time. Just a couple weeks ago I noticed Kick-Ass was on Netflix, so I decided to watch it. It was awful. I guess being with my friend had distracted me from the horrible acting. I think what made it a challenge was the dialogue from the comic (I'm only speculating). Saying things like "Oh dear child" isn't really normal. Only good actors in my opinion was Chloe Moretz(Hit Girl) and  Aaron Johnson(Kick-Ass), and possibly Kick-Ass'es friends.

Day 17 – A movie that disappointed you the most
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010)


David Yates 5/10

I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter books and the older movies of the series. The latest movies have been so dark and terrifying. I skipped the midnight premier as I had a film class that I was going to watch it with the same day as the premier. I hated it. Every little part of this movie was awful. The chase scene is what first made me angry, It was back to being childish, I couldn't help but facepalm. The rest of the movie kills me. Watching people stand around in the woods for an hour wasn't exactly what I was looking forward too. Nothing happened, and when people tell me, "oh well thats because the second half has all the action" I get so annoyed. I don't care about the second half, a boring movie is a boring movie. I did like how the director followed the book in much more detail then past movies, but I felt bad for people who have not read the books; It leaves those who have not read the book behind.

Hangover 2 Review and Day 14/13

The Hangover Part II! Last night I had the pleasure of watching the midnight premier. And to be honest, I would have to rate it a 7/10. This movie seemed to lack the charm of the original Hangover.

What really bothered me throughout the movie was Alan (Zach Galifianakis). In the first movie, his awkward sayings and behaviors where the reason he was so funny and really livened up the whole thing. If anyone has seen Due Date, you know that there is definitely a limit on the awkward behavior before it just comes annoying and completely unfunny. I had prayed that Todd Phillips wouldn't make the same mistake twice. Hangover 2 was in the middle, behavior wise, between Hangover and Due Date, which is still too much Alan for me.

Hangover Part II unbalanced the mix of shock and creativity by really ramping up the shock. Sure it's shocking, but not really funny or interesting.. This movie really lacked in the witty sayings of Hangover 1. Where is the new 'One Man Wolfpack'! Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention but who knows.

Too be honest, I am starting to lose faith in Todd Phillips. And even though Hangover 2 has a 32% percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, I am already sure that a Hangover 3 will probably come out!

Day 14 – A movie that no one would expect you to love
Sixteen Candles (1984)


John Hughes 9/10
I'm pretty sure anyone who knows me would never ever think this as a movie I like. I usually watch a lot of violent movies, so Sixteen Candles is definitely not the usual thing. I actually was bored one day and watched this on tv. The thing is, I like 80's high school movies, who doesn't!? They are so..funny but in an 80's unique way of being funny. Oh and Molly Ringwald was pretty cute.

Day 13 – A movie that is a guilty pleasure

Avatar (2009)


James Cameron 8/10
There is no doubt about it, this is the most overrated movie there is. This movie ended its theater showings with a total gross of $2,782,275,172 dollars worldwide. And it really does seem to copy from Titanic and from Pocahontas. It also has a really obvious political message; That armies and corporations are bad. Even with all of that combined, I still love this movie. I actually seen this movie in 3d on the midnight premier. I think the 3d is what bought me, it was amazing, it was almost too life like at some points.
