AnimeboyWhere Have I Been? And, Some Quick Reviews/Recommendations

I have just been living life…

Hope you are all well

And now some of the stuff I’ve been Watching Lately

Quick Reviews/Recommendations

42-poster42

This is a Really Good Film

Great Leading Actor, and Actress

Check it out

I’d Write More, but it was a couple months ago when I saw it

But I meant to Review it

my-little-pony-friendship-is-magic-487-1680x1050My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic

I did a Big Ol Embarrassing Post about this a bit back

But I gotta say, though this Product Line was Originally Aimed at Little Girls in back in the 1980’s

This Latest Series is Both Imaginative, and Hilarious

Many in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s an Beyond actually Follow it

Check out the First 3 Seasons on Netflix if you have it

Cloudy-with-a-Chance-of-Meatballs-2-Wallpaper-01Cloudy With Chances Of Meatballs 2

I know, I know… What has become of me

I just watched this, never saw the first one, and never heard of either of them

The beginning basically explains the first film, so don’t worry about missing it

But this 2nd one is Hilarious

the_mist3The Mist

Never would have seen this one either

To my Surprise, one of my Favorite Directors/Screenplay Writers did it

Frank Darabont… The same Director/Screenplay Writer as “Shawshank Redemption”

Both “The Myst” and “Shawshank Redemption” are based on Steven King Stories

Now, I wouldn’t compare “The Mist” to “Shawshank Redemption”

After all, “Shawshank” is my Third Favorite Film

After The First Two “Star Wars” Films

But, “The Mist” is a Really Good Psychological Horror Film

And Well Worth going through a Bucket of Popcorn for

=======================

I’ve seen more than these lately, maybe I’ll throw up some more soon

Star Wars… How Has It Affected You, Or Someone You Love? Have A Story, I’ll Post It

by darkjade68

vanity-fair-star-wars-star-wars-29334722-2518-946Star Wars… How Has It Affected You, Or Someone You Love? Have A Story, I’ll Post It

Perhaps you’re wondering why all the sudden I’m starting to Post things Related to “Star Wars”

Well, like I say, I haven’t been really following all the Hoopla in regards to the New Films

Not because I don’t support Lucas’s decision to sell the Rights to Disney… Because I do

Probably mainly because I’ve never been a guy who Follows Hoopla of any kind, Lol

That said

With the New Film (Episode VII) coming out in 2015

And with “Star Wars Day” Coming on May 4th (I didn’t realize this wasn’t the First Year for this)

I’ve decided to Embrace Both the New Films

And “Star Wars Day”

Why? Mainly because “Star Wars” is the reason I decided to pursue Film Making (Which I did for 3 years)

And because, both Walt Disney, and George Lucas are two of my Heroes

Nuff Said… This Article below I Posted on My “The Written Word” Blog  last month

If Any of you would like me to Post a Story about what “Star Wars” means to you

Or how it has impacted your, or someone you love’s life

Email it to LegendsUndying@Yahoo.Com

And I Will Post It During the Next Week

==========================================================

Star Wars… The Reason I Became A Film Maker – My Story (Part I)

star wars 2Star Wars… The Reason I Became A Film Maker – My Story (Part I)

It was May, 1977…

My Brother, Mom and I went to see the Original “Star Wars”

My Brother and My Lives would never the same

That Opening Sequence…

The Size of the Ship

And in Walked My Favorite All Time Villain, Darth Vader

Darth HelmThe Cape, The Helmet, The Voice

The Force…

He’s Affected me forever in regards to Villains

He has, in fact, Set The Bar

And has Lead me Directly to my Theory that

In a Story where there are ‘Good Guys’

And there are ‘Bad Guys’

(Be it Movie, Book or Other)

A Story can only be as good as ‘The Bad Guy’

Cuz who cares if the Good Guy Defeats some Fool, Lol

Check My Theory Out on some of your Favorite Good Guy Bad Guy Films

Flashback to

“Robin Hood Prince of Thieves”

That Movie would have been Horrible without Alan Rickman as The Sheriff of Nottingham

(It’s Still Pretty Horrible, and Dated, Lol but Rickman was Hilarious)

Flash Forward to

“Avengers”

Tom Hiddleston as Loki

Guarantee you, if Loki had been Played by anyone less then him

It wouldn’t have done nearly as well

Onward

Luke…

At the time I saw “Star Wars”, I was 8 years old

And, in Truth, I was more of a ‘Han Solo’ guy

My Bro was into ‘Luke’

Which worked out good in regards to Toys, and/or Acting out Scenes Etc.

But Looking back now, I have really gained an Appreciation for Luke’s Character

He is Hope… He is Light

And I do believe, Visually, George Lucas was inspired a bit by…

Peter O’toole as Lawrence…

The Desert…

The White Clothing, and White/Blonde Hair

Very Luke-esq

Also, did you see Alec Guiness in it as a Sheik?

Probably where Lucas got the idea to bring him into “Star Wars”

Which leads us to… Ben

Enter… The Force

And… Light Sabers

Which are a Simply Elegant Weapon

And Damn Cool Looking, Lol

But I Love Knights, so

The Blend of Sci-Fi, and Knights…

Yeah…

I was Done

But it’s Time For ‘The Man’

He was My Favorite Man…

I wanted to be ‘Han Solo’

Me, and a Million other young Boys, Lol

So a Young Hopeful Hero (Luke)

And an Aging Knight of the Jedi Order (Ben)

Along with a Roguish Pilot (Han Solo)

An Annoying Nagging Robot (C-3PO)

With a Hilarious Beeping Robot (R2d2)

Oh, an a Giant Wolf/Bear Growling Co-Pilot (Chewbacca)

off to Save a Princes (Leia)

From the Coolest Evil Dude in Film (Darth Vader)

Great Start, Right?

Oh, and did I mention the Millennium Falcon?

Star Wars… The Reason I Became A Film Maker – My Story (Part II)
