Although I would have to say this movie is a cross of The Blair Witch Project and Godzilla. I went into this movie with low expectations and was completely blown away. Matt Reeves made this generic big monster run movie into a beautiful artistic edge of your seat confusion ride that will not become a jaded memory. I do have to say that this isn’t a movie to see after a night of drinking. Unlike The Blair Witch Project you can see professionalism in all the shots but at the same time have the handycam feeling. The somewhat “no-name” cast was picked well and the acting was even better. The plot followed the characters more than defining the creature which was a nice change.
I definitely recommend seeing this movie. Even if it costs you millions!
Which should be titled “One Movie You Should Miss.” Â Â
I can’t say this movie was a letdown since I didn’t expect much from it anyway. Â This was a mash-up between The Ring and The Grudge. Â The logic the characters use in this movie makes no sense. Â Apparently if someone burns to death in a hospital logically they will make their way into the phone systems. Â The acting was sub par and the cast just didn’t do it for me. Â The movie was PG-13 and that alone was a letdown. Â I still never understood why no one tried to answer the actual call instead of letting it go to voicemail. Â And what’s with all these antagonist’s havingÂ respiratoryÂ problems, from the Ring to the Grudge to One Missed Call. Â I smoke and I don’t sound like this. Â Get these people aÂ humidifier.Â Â
Over all the movie gets a SUCK. Â Not even worth matinee. Â Â
This is a video Greg and I had put together a few months ago. Â I know it’s been up for a while but I figured I’d post it here too. Â So far with over 2,000 views and five stars I feel we made a good video…..enjoy! Â
Late last Sunday we got a lot of snow which gave me the opportunity on Monday to work from home. Â I think we got about six inches of snow which isn’t really that much but it was very heavy, as you can see from the picture below, a tree I park under was weighed down over my car and almost to the street. Â It was fun moving it.Â
One Sunday a few weeks ago I stumbled into a song. Â I thought it sounded good so I spent a couple hours setting up some mics and I put a rough mix together. Â Although it’s far from perfect I’m happy with how it came out. Â I still have a lot of work left on it but I feel this is a decent rough cut, especially for being recorded in a basement next to a water heater that was on at the time.Â
Â Â So in the song you might be able to count four guitar tracks and some drums. Â I had to do the drums on a keyboard since I can’tÂ affordÂ a decent set and I don’t have the micing capabilities. Â Surprisingly there is a lot of low end with no actual bass tracks. Â Although the song is done with four guitar tracks I can play almost all of it in one take, I just wanted to get some good placement for the instruments. Â Â
