6:33 pm - Prey - cinematic drivel destined to land in Obscureville
laraemeadows “Prey” is the arnch-tastic, bite-olicious, cinematic drivel destined to land in Obscureville or Makefunofland. This chomp-olistic mess is shamefully directed by Darrell Roodt and the downright pudency of writing is brought to us by Beau Bauman, Jeff Wadlow and Darrell Roodt.

2:16 pm - Marie Antoinette - Barf
“Marie Antoinette”, left me fielding requests from my ears and brain to be strapped to excessive levels of dynamite and ignited. Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, “Marie Antionette” gives us another example of why it is rarely a good idea to have all of the ideas coming from one person.
Yes, it sucked Collapse )

1:22 pm - The Painted Veil - A lovely movie


“The Painted Veil” is a beautiful movie about the power of anger as shown through a wife and husband who travel to rural china to treat a cholera epidemic. Director John Curran uses beautiful scenery and sets to frame great acting and a well written story based on the novel by W. Somerset Maugham.

10:49 am - The Last King of Scotland-sticks in your mind and heart like a battle scar!

1:33 pm - The Dead Girl - Not a revolutionary movie but strong acting and strong script

“The Dead Girl”, written and directed by Karen Moncrieff, is a haunting story of how six women are affected by the gruesome, untimely death of one young woman. Each affected woman is suffering in their own emotional prison. Arden, Leah, Beverly, Ruth, Rosetta, and Melora all gain new life and opportunity because of their connection to the dead girl.

5:21 pm - The Departed-This film is full of unexceptional things.


“The Departed,” is a cop, snitch, mob drama centered in Boston. Directed by Martin Scorsese, “The Departed’s” screenplay, written by William Monahan, Siu Fai Mak and Felix Chong, leads the audience through a brilliantly written maze of lies, violence and vengeance. Even a strong screenplay can’t save the movie from Martin Scorsese’s unnecessary gore and the actors’ melodrama.

2:08 pm - Pan’s Labyrinth is a mystical and whimsical fairy tale wrapped in horrifying war story

11:26 pm - The Queen - Its screenplay is the epitome of UK personality.


“The Queen” attempts to make British Royalty understandable in typical British style; with diverse but subdued emotions. Finely directed by Stephen Frears, and complexly written by Peter Morgan, “The Queen” tries to offer an explanation to the strange behavior of the royals after Princess Diana’s death. “The Queen” is a teeter-totter story of the balance between old and new.

Queen Elizabeth the Second, regally portrayed by Helen Mirren, strikes an uncaring and cold cord to the British people and the world when Princess Diana is killed. She refuses to address the nation. She refuses to allow her grand children to go to Paris to see her body. She even refuses to allow Prince Charles, Alex Jenning’s character, to fly on the royal jet to see Diana while she is in critical care. When Diana finally dies, she doesn’t want a public funeral. The British people cry out for her attention and she provides none.
A royal reviewCollapse )

2:30 pm - Charlotte's Web - A sweet movie based on a sweet story.

Charlotte’s Web, based on the book by E.B. White, directed by Gary Winick, film story by Earl Hamner Jr. and screenplay by Susannah Grant and Karey Kirkpatrick is a heart warming story of friendship, loyalty and acceptance.

When a runt pig is born, a little girl, Fern, talks her father out of slaughtering the pig. Fern, played by Dakota Fanning, raises the pig, Wilbur, by hand until the pig is too large to stay in the house. She takes Wilbur, voice by Dominic Scott Kay, to live with her uncle. It is only after Wilbur goes to live with her uncle that Fern realizes that her pig will be slaughtered for Christmas dinner.
What a beautiful web they spinCollapse )

12:12 am - Eragon, The Perfect C
laraemeadows I waited with baited breath for the climax of this film. I was left to finish myself off because there was no cinematic orgasm. The film at the end of movie didn’t wrap anything up for the audience and leaves the sneaking suspicion that there will be a sequel.

More about EragonCollapse )

8:12 am - For Your Consideration
laraemeadows This movie does not blow a goat, it in fact blows several goats. “For Your Consideration” is worth seeing if you are suicidal but unsure you can go through with it and need a little push over the edge or if you have someone to make out with.

“For Your Consideration”, directed and co-written by Christopher Guest and co-written by Eugene Levy is a comedy based in Los Angeles about a bunch of washed up “C List” stars who find out there is internet Oscar buzz about the ridiculous movie “Home for Purim” they are currently filming. The buzz makes the actors and everyone else connected to the film lose their minds.
Find out why?Collapse )

7:47 am - Bobby
laraemeadows This movie is insightful, disheartening and the acting stirring.

“Bobby” directed and written by Emilio Estevez is set on the day of the California Presidential Primary Elections in 1968. Set in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, Emilio Estevez, Demi Moore, Anthony Hopkins, Sharon Stone, William H. Macy, Shia LaBeouf and many others share one location with seemingly loosely related story lines. Actual footage of Bobby Kennedy is spliced into the movie, mostly to give context to the times that the characters are currently living in.

Review of "Dralion", a DVD by Cirque du Soleil and lots of Chinese acrobats

Pros: AMAZING acrobatics, cool music (it's live, just like the rest of it), and just a production that's extremely beautiful and full of rich colors and flowing fabrics. The Chinese troupe is out of this world. What balance and strength! I can't even imagine.

Cons: A few costumes inappropriate for showing kids at a conservative Christian school (such is life!), but it's cool for older kids and if you need to you can always skip past the chapters with the skimpy costumes:-).

Bottom Line: See this if you get a chance. Some of the things you'll see look like they shouldn't be humanly possible!

8:34 pm - Francesco Rinaldi pasta sauce; recommended

Pros: Tastes great (my husband who isn't a huge fan of red sauces likes it), it is inexpensive (cheaper than the bigger brands) and seems to go on sale with some regularity, it has only good things it it with no junk like preservatives and additives, the labels tell you what each sauce is like (is it chucky or smooth? sweet or savory?), one bottle feeds four with ease

Cons: They don't make a white sauce

Bottom Line: I would absolutely recommend these sauces to everyone

Please read all-of-the-way through and participate, and get as many friends as you can to participate, or poll them and post or e-mail me with the response.

Talk to your friends and find out (5) of their favorite X-Box, multi-player games. PS2 is later in my plan.

I would appreciate that you fill out your fav's, and then, have any and/or all friends you can also do it. Or e-mail me at JJMaul5@aol.com

It is really important, and will benefit all gamers if you do this. Trust me, it is for a future business station. (In brief: A nation-wide server of stations holding from 16 players up-wards of 128 players, Dave & Busters is in line for 23 of the +128 player stations!, stationed at Mall's, GameStop's & EB's, and Best Buys, etc. all over the country. Over 1700 are in order to be set up, and will have Real-time standings for players.)

So far I have, Halo, Halo2, Crimson Skies, Rainbow Six, MechAssault2, DDR games for X-Box.

I NEED more input from the public. There will be a 2-month beta test beginning November 9th, like the date?, going until January. Please get involved with that too (more info on it to come eventually).

We are trying to get involved with Y100 (a big Philadelphia-area radio station) for advertising, participation, and funding. (A letter and outline has been sent to your dad already Justin by the guy whom I am working with.) So you may be hearing about it on there. It is called FragIsle LLC and you can bet it will change the multi-player gaming industry. So many large companies are fight to sponsor us and work with us, and you can help us now too! Please do so. If you're at college, ask EVERYONE YOU CAN, and e-mail me the results at JJMaul5@aol.com, or post them here. PLEASE! This is a revolutionary step and we need all of you! Thank you all!

If you are reading this in a Video Game/Halo/Halo 2/X-Box community, I ask you to e-mail me, as I cannot guarantee I will be able to check this again. JJMaul5@aol.com. Or respond to the most recent Entry in my journal (TuabRy05)
