Triangle - 9.5/10 - One of the most intriguing movies I've seen as of late. It's a mindbender about a group of people who go on a yacht trip and a storm wrecks them. They board passing cruise ship and things get crazy from there.
The wife who rarely pays that much attention to movies was engrossed. There was alot of 'I think this is whats happening' type comments during the movie, and it really never went where we thought it was going which was a good thing.
Do I need to watch The Human Centipede 1 before I see 2? (assuming I see either at all)
The acting at the beginning of Human Centipede 1 is horrendous but the concept and the bad guy make up for it. There is not a lot of torture porn (as it is call) but the theme of the movie is good. What define existence? If you cannot talk and are attached to someone else is that worse than dying? I have not seen the second one, i hear that one is a torture porn type horror film.
Did you see Eastern Promises? It's grisly at times but it really held my interest. "Entertaining" isn't exactly what I look for in art, moreso inspiration, but that's not usually on the menu unfortunately.I saw some ugly things in Kosovo and frankly dont find torture movies nor modern grisly action flicks to be particularly entertaining.
Haven't started it yet, I'm in the queue for Season 1 disk 1 at my local library. Are ensuing seasons as good as the first?Breaking Bad 9.7/10
started watching it a few days ago and am at Season 1, Episode 7. Man, what a great series. Watched 3 episodes in a row. I have not been drawn into a miniseries in a very long time. In the last 10+ years, this and Game of Thrones have revived my faith in television. I love HBO.
Between the Folds - 8/10
available on Amazon instant
amazing documentary on how origami has evolved over time and how it's gotten to the point where people are discussing origami like math
Pieces like this:
Ya, I saw it also. I'd give it more of a 5/10. Wasn't that interesting. You learned about it but it wasn't much more fascinating than if you just found an origami forum and started reading.
