So I went to see Sucker Punch yesterday.
Although I loved the movie, I found the plot to be slightly... convoluted. I mean, Wayne (my cousin) came out of the movie and still wasn't quite sure what had happened, and I think I understand why (*Spoilers from here until the end of the paragraph. Skip ahead if you don't want it ruined). The movie has two layers, the real world, in which the girls are trapped in the mental institution (which is a front for a whore-house, so I guess it's sort of like 2 and a half layers?) and then Baby Doll's 'dreams/hallucinations.' But what sort of threw me is that when the girl/s (I won't tell you who makes it and who doesn't) escape, the bus on which they leave is being driven by the old grizzled mentor type character from the dreams, so it sort of crosses over.
But regardless, a good movie nonetheless. Which was a surprise. With the five main characters being of the attractive female persuation, I didn't really thing that it'sd have too much of a storyline, so I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't just about the 'eye-candy,' unlike some movies (*Cough*Tomb Raider*Cough*). And, of course, it was directed by Zack Snyder (300 and Watchmen) so of course, the visuals were insane.
- Because I Can...
So my bike disintegrated today. I know, I know, you're probably all like, 'Oh, here's Nathan with one of his stupid jokes again', but no.
My bike is now in three pieces.
The handle-bars, the front wheel and the rest of the framework are all seperate now. They are held together only by the brake lines.
So anyway, I went to see Battle: Los Angeles and Limitless recently (read: in the last fortnight) and I wasn't disappointed. That's not to say they're great, but they could've been worse. Limitless has a cool concept (struggling writer discovers a drug that increases his mental facilities by over a thousand percent) and it stars Bradley Cooper, which means it's automatically okay in my books. Bradley Cooper is a severely underrated actor in my opinion, although at times it seems like the story let the movie down at times.
Battle: Los Angeles, on the other hand, had awesome special effects, huge explosions and Michelle Rodrigues, plus it starred Two-Face from the Dark Knight, which means it could have sucked and I still would have gone to see it. As a side note here, when Michelle Rodrigues walked on-screen for the first time in the movie, one of my friends leaned over to me and sort of whispered 'It's her kind of movie, I guess.' I sort of thought about that for a moment before I whispered back 'Well, look at her. It's not like she can play a more feminine role.' Seriously, Michelle Rodrigues is manlier than Justin Bieber and Robert Pattinson combine- oh wait, I guess that's not saying that much...
Sorry for not updating in ages, but I've been busy finding and starting my new job. And moving house. And attending two funerals. And- well, you get the point.
But this shall be changed now! (Because I've actually got a det timetable with work now). The comics will remain updating Monday Wednesday and Friday, starting.. lessee, carry the oe.. oh, right. TODAY! This afternoon I'll add a comic and (hopefully) finish off the current storyline. :D YAYZ!
Oh, and also thanks to Hythlodeus, Jay042, and Jacob Gristlewood for the guest strips and for helping the site not die while I've been away.
Anyways, awesome. Be back later with a comic. Promise.
Okay, that was a lie. Because I don't actually have a scanner at my current address, so I'll have to be doing everything with the library scanner now. Check back in next week.
Comics shall resume... wednesday.
