Interview and movies…

The interview wasn’t any biggie. I was fashionably late because I didn’t know where it was. I walked in, a guard took my name and put me in a little room all alone for four or five minutes. I was greeted by this hulking guy with a tatoo on his arm. He took me into a seperate office and another little room with a table and some chairs on either side. He did what all interviews seem to do; have me describe some pickel that came up in the past; then how I delt with it. Or ask an unexpected question so he can see how fast I think on my feet. I did very well, actually, and they offered me a job on starting next Monday. I said, “Are you going to pay me more?” They said, “uh, no.” So I said “Then no, but keep me on your list so you can look me up if you’re ever in a bind.”

That was that so I went to Fry’s and got Sin City. That was such a bizzar movie. The story lines were entertaining, but nothing special. It was extremely violent, true to Tarenteno’s past works. I absolutely LOVE the whole style it carried. The detective monolog of sights, feelings and hunches. Then the way they screwed with the color, or lack there of. The way they did it made objects, structure and character stand out like plain old color could never do… that I know of. You see what the directors want you to see.

We also ended up watching The Increadibles and Finding Neverland. Both of those were good movies too. I hadn’t seen Finding Neverland before, so that was a treat.

Anyway, my eyes are burning from looking at a TV to long, I’m going to bed.

Good Morning Neva Land

Yesterday was a day at work. People came in, I helped them as best as I could, and people left. After work I went to see Incredibles with Jess. Not to be confused with Jessica or Jesse. Jessica is my sister. Jesse is a guy. Jess is Jessica that I call Jess because I know too many people with names that sound similar so any defination between them label-wise makes it easier for people to know who I’m talking about without haveing to explain it to them every time… just once. Hopefully. Anyway, The Incredibles was a very good movie, I thought. Action. Adventure. Charecters struggling with their family and who they are, and nice happy ending. I enjoyed the plot and found it all very well thought out, as I find Pixar movies normaly are. Jess wasn’t so impressed… but she tends to get a gut feeling in her persona and once it’s there it doesn’t like to stray. For this movie the baby wierded her out and that’s all she talks about even though it was 5 seconds of the hour and 45 minute movie.

Back to the plot thing, because it’s something to talk about. While watching Pirates of the Carribean I realised that what truely makes any form of entertainment great are the writers. Pirates is the most fun I’ve seen a movie since The Princess Bride. Those are the kinds of movies I see over and over. The ones that use cleaver and witty banter effortlessly as they interweave plots on top of plots. Mmm… nothing as tastey as a movie that intregues interest and makes you think, laugh, and go ohhh and ahh at the same time. 🙂
