True Blood

Painting I just finished!

Ive been watching alot of True Blood these days and im really getting into it, season 2 is MMM’azing! For all you True Blood fans you know for a fact that when vampires cry they cry blood, so today I thought it would be cool to paint a vampire chick crying right after she’d been transformed.

So voila!

The Watchmen Movie Review

Watchmen COMIC

Watchmen COMIC

This has been a movie that I’ve been anticipating for quite a while now, after reading the astonishing novel/comic book I had to go and see it.

The Watchmen movie was an amazing live action version of Alan Moores comic book. It brought to life the gritty realness of  all the characters who manipulated atoms by just thinking about them, dawned a Rorschach mask, followed the ways of there predecessors, used intelligence to conquer all and blew up anything that moved and lived to tell a joke about it.

Synopsis: in 1985 the glory days of costumed vigilantes have been brought to a close by a government crackdown, but after one of the masked veterans is brutally murdered an investigation into the killer is initiated. The reunited heroes set out to prevent their own destruction, but in doing so discover a deeper and far more diabolical plot.

The Watchmen should not be compared to such comic book films as Spider-man, Superman and The Hulk. Seeing that it incorporates of lot of the following things; gore (LOTS), sex, nudity (the MAIN character is naked 24/7) and  political events in which really took place, makes this film unsitible for the faint of heart or for young children. When I say unsuitible for children I mean it, if you suspect this film to be in any way educational or entertaining for your child PLEASE refrain. At one point in the film a mans arm is literatly SPLIT into half, exposing raw bone and  tatterd flesh. Also that the writing and GENIUS behind the novel and film over power that of any other comic book or comic book movie (in my opinion).

What I found most pleasing about the film was the artistic cinematography, it showed that Zack Snyder cared about keeping the film true to the comic book. The illustrator who created the imagery in the Watchmen novel, Dave Gibbons, was pleased with the result of the close attention to detail.

The character I found the most interesting in the film and novel, has to be Rorschach. Being a man with now powers, he sure has the the courage to do what ever and fight whomever he pleases, a total contrast to Dr. Manhattan. Once he puts on his Rorschach shifting “face”, he becomes his alter ego, he is NO LONGER Walter Kovacks, but the crime fighting vigilanti who doesnt give a shit about nothing or no one. The character I could sympathise the most with would be the Nite owl. He showed me the passion one could have for something, in his case being a superhero, and loosing it without looking back. When he decided he  no longer wanted to be Dan Dreiberg, and rode out with The silk spectre II in his Nite owl ship to save civilianze, I “WOO WHOO’D” inside.

If you are a LOYAL fan of the Watchmen, this movie will be entertaining for you, but you might not like the subtle “changes” that occur throught the movie. Overall I thought this was a work of art as was the comic, and  opened many peoples eyes to the intellegence in which can come from a comic book. Not EVERYONE who reads comic books is a “geeek” you know!

Coraline Movie Review

Hey ya’ll,

I’ve been anticipating this movie for a long while, and yesterday i was able to gaze upon the beauty that is Coraline.

THE SYNOPSIS: A young girl (Fanning) walks through a secret door in her new home and discovers an alternate version of her life. On the surface, this parallel reality is eerily similar to her real life – only much better. But when her adventure turns dangerous, and her counterfeit parents (including Other Mother [Hatcher]) try to keep her forever, Coraline must count on her resourcefulness, determination, and bravery to get back home – and save her family.

From IMDB

Even though I didn’t see it in Real D (BECAUSE THE STOOOPID THEATER DIDN’T HAVE IT!!) I still very much enjoyed the film. It was a visual masterpiece and really well written. The voice acting was amazing and the character and set design simply astonishing! The beauty of the film took me back a bit, the whole time I thought of how long it mustve taken just to complete that one scene or how much attention to detail the clothing and puppets needed. If there was ONE thing i did int to much like about this film, it would be that at some points of the movie it dragged on just a bit, making parts of the movie a tad boring, but even during the boring scenes I still found something to amaze me.

Many have been assuming that Tim Burton was the mastermind behind this brilliant piece of work, but Henry Selick (screenplay) and Neil Gaiman (book) should be given there full deserved credit. The movie took you into the life a little girl, seeing the twisted world in her point of view, seeing it in her point of view was almost comforting, seeing that little Coraline had no fear. I remember thinking while watching the movie “I would be scared SHIT LESS if I was Coraline”, but she plowed through the creepy buttoness alone and fearless. This movie taught the audience that no mater how much of a  boring, dull, horrible, deprived or depressing life you may have, there’s always good in whats present, and as the tag line clearly states ” Be careful what you wish for”.
