what do you listen to on the street?

This is a pretty cool video, I like seeing how people react to this guy when they tell him what music they`re listening to.   When you listen to music do you feel like you`re in a movie? It´s amazing what a little bit of music can do to change your perspective on the street and how you perceive everyday things.

Bridesmaids (2011)

Love this movie! Annie (Kristen Wiig) is a 30ish year old woman who’s going through a tough spot in her life. A failed business, broken relationship, weird roommates, and to top it all off everyone around her is getting married! Oh no! Doesn’t this already sound like hokey romcom starting Katherine Hiegl?? Well, it’s not. Annie’s best friend from childhood, Lillian (Maya Rudolph), is the bride-to-be and has chosen Annie as the Maid of Honor to plan all parties and events. This is where it gets interesting…

This is probably going to end up being one of the funniest movies of the year! The opening scene is HILARIOUS! It was one of those scenes where I was laughing through most of the next scene as well and giggling like a little girl trying not to be the person laughing out loud at “nothing”. Kriten Wiig is amazing. She really does a great job and her comedic acting is untouchable, plus she’s not too bad on the eyes which is never a bad thing. Aka she’s hot… They really pack it in, scene after scene, one on top of the other are all funny in their own ways. The characters compliment each other well, for instance, Kristen Wiig’s opposite is Helen (Rose Byrne). Helen is the hot girl with all the money who befriends Lillian and takes over Annie’s spot as the best friend. This dynamic is what the movie thrives off and is the focal point of everything wrong in Annie’s life. Toward the end it gets a little sappy, but they had to do that to wrap up the story and I don’t think they linger on the montages and hugs too long. To piggy back on what I just said, the movie is a bit long though haha (125 min).  That’s quite long for a comedy, but I didn’t really feel it until the very end.

What I don’t like about this movie is how critics are acting like it’s an anomaly that a comedy starring women is funny. I guess this is the first time a girl has been funny! No. But, it’s true, this far exceeds most comedies put out nowadays, so maybe they have a point. A girl that’s funny sits in her skin a bit more comfortably and that’s always attractive. Anyway, GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!! It rocks!

Blade Runner: Director’s Cut (1992)

I 100% like this movie. The year is 2019 and Los Angeles looks a whole lot like present day Tokyo with lots of neon and advertisements trying to grab your attention like a 3 year old who wants a cookie. Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is a former Blade Runner who is sent back to the job when a team of Replicants come back to Earth for revenge and answers. Now you’re probably asking “what the hell is a Blade Runner or Replicant?” The Blade Runners are the police force in charge of terminating replicants. Replicants are human clones designed to live and serve in colonies outside of Earth. These human clones must be terminated because they were declared dangerous when six of them hijacked a ship back to Earth and killed everyone on board.

Blade Runner has an incredible vision of what a bleak future would look like and does it in a stylistic way. Ridley Scott out performs himself and puts together another grand futuristic story together. The opening sequence sets the scene for the entire movie. Overlooking the city in doubt with an eye looking over in awe signifying that someone is always watching. A major theme throughout the film is asking yourself what it means to be human. Do you know? I don’t. It’s a great question to ask and Blade Runner does a great job of it. The replicants believe they are humans just as much as you believe you are a human which leads to the reason why the replicants came back to Earth, for answers.

Many people on message boards argue if this is a masterpiece or not. The main point many “masterpiece” viewers say is that you have to have multiple viewings to get a grasp of it’s grandiose style and complex story. I’m not a fan of any movie that I have to watch more than once to like. If I don’t like it after the first watch through (assuming I was paying attention) then it’s probably going to bore me the same the second time through. Unlike a movie like The Matrix or Inception where I left asking myself “whaaaaa??” yet HAD to go back and witness the magnificence once again. This is NOT a bad movie. I just wouldn’t consider it a masterpiece, but I know many film teachers would show this in class because it has heavy themes as well as extremely subtle hints as to what is happening.

Half way through the movie I found myself wondering if it was building to anything because it seemed as though the characters were just walking around completing random tasks with real no purpose at hand. The film comes together in a beautiful way with many memorable scenes (like a very awkward “sex” scene). I would recommend this movie to anyone because this is the type of movie that some people will watch and enjoy immensely. To each his own.
