Ok I just got back from seeing "The Village" and I’ve been talking
about the movie with my girlfriend nonstop since it ended. We don’t see
eye to eye on some things. I thought it was great. It was a midnight
showing and the theater was pretty packed…. but not sold out. The
rest of the crowd seemed to like it but I think people had mixed
feelings. Parts of this movie are pretty damn scary. But what really
impressed me is the hidden stuff in the movie. This movie makes for
some great discussion. Some might also argue that M. Night Shyamalan
also had a political message in the film. I’m not entirely convinced it
was his intention, but I can definately see it. If anybody wants to
discuss this movie with me after they have seen it please do. There is
something in the movie that is sort of driving me nuts and I want to
know if anybody else agrees with me. So once you’ve seen it, send me a
private message and let me know what you thought. I’m also curious how
people feel this matches up to some of his other films.
As of tonight I have one great costume idea. Sara says I’m all talk. But we shall see.
on my mind. I want an iPod. But it doesn’t look like I will buy one for
a while. I’m broke and I’m trying to save up some money. I went to go
see theSTART in Boston yesterday. I was worried about getting up there
cuz of the DNC. I heard the place was like a fortress. Had a little
trouble, the highway I needed to go on was closed, but I made it. At
the show I saw somebody rocking out to a song on their iPod. And I
thought… dammit! I want one! But I don’t need it, so I’m gonna wait.
The show was great. I had never really heard any of their music until
recently and now I kinda like it. I’m surprised they aren’t bigger. They
have a lot of potential. The other band was called the AKA’s. They were
ok but nothing great.
