Chris Nolan is on the hunt. Please let Duncan Jones get the gig, or basically anyone but Zac Snyder will be doing a great job on that list. I really need to see Let Me In, Battle: Los Angeles when the both come out, in order to judge those two directors better.
I love friday nights because i can stay up late and write up an essay for my black studies class alone and in peace. HW on a friday night is so much fun. Love the life you live and live the life you love mates. The choices you make become and the future is bright for us all, if you make it so. I love….
I saw Gatttaca and it was amazing. I saw it a few days ago with the lady and it was delightful. Ethan Hawke and Jude Law were amazing in their respective roles.
The glow that the lighting used throughout the film was used to spectacular effect. It was peachy gold that the sun had. Whenever the setting was outside of any building, for the most part, sun had this radiant glow to it.
It reminded me of the desert and how the world is totally different from anywhere else you may find yourself. The sun and the feel it give you is the strangest thing. There is so much sun that it is, after a while, softly killing you. As in, you are weathered and tired from being attacked by the rays.
I really enjoyed the scenes of chicken; when Anton and his brother would race each other in the ocean. I truly believe that those scenes were the most moving. Those shots and the way those moments were captured on film, paired with the ever present anthemic score, almost brought me to tears. I enjoyed how Director Andrew Nicol filmed the races from all different angles and repeatedly used them. Repetition really enforces those scenes and makes them that more memorable.
I found myself cheering for Anton every time they stepped into the water. The final race in which he says the line of the movie “I never gave anything for the swim back” really tells you what the mission to Titian is all about. He does not care about the consequences of his actions, he is living in the moment and is willing to do everything in his power to get there.
The movie had a message of do not stop and do not give up when it comes to attaining your dreams. While this is a universal message, that makes everyone feel all warm and fuzzy inside, how practical and real can they make it? Nichol created a world and a culture where dreams could come true, with a little bit of help.
The message of the film is what really spoke to me above anything else in the film. It was very reminiscent of the film “Man on a Wire” in that regard. I found the film to be extremely entertaining and it did find a way to keep me on my toes the entire time.
I do like what he has to say. He is conservative in his message but also a pretty chill guy. I love his story, it is stories like his that really show the power of God. It is really inspiring to find a story about a church like his. I know, from experience, that going to church can be boring. It is very difficult to find a church that, not only caters to the needs of young people, but also makes the extra effort to show that the church is really centered around JC and not about it being a young and hip church. I never knew that a church full of skinny jeans and RayBan’s would attract such mainstream attention and be so conservative in its teachings. I would really like to attend one of the services to see and hear with my own eyes what it is really all about. Young men and women truly on fire for God is something to be praised and admired. At this age, following all that the Bible teaches and mandates, is a daily struggle. There are so many temptations and with no parents to slap your wrist, every time you do something wrong, you are left to yourself or get an accountability partner.
Not going to lie, I have said some of the same things as him. He takes some of what I have said to another level, makes some of his own fabulous points and make connections that I never could have made; with my limited wisdom.
