The Diving Bell And The Butterfly: This is a film i have been meaning to see because i have heard just amazing stuff about it, so about time i got around seeing this movie which is a true story about a man who has a stroke and only can communicate with blinking hie eye and ends up writing a book like this. This is must see movie just so see to see how how he does this and what he goes through but also how he was before it ended up in this situation.
These days i don't think many movies are sad or just don't bring me in but this one had me eyes stuck to the screen (Beside some drunk guy in the street yelling) and that ending was really sad and you find out he writes this book but his life just couldnt go on is just sad but he is amazing how he did this but thinking about, how long it would have taken. Thats what i kept thinking about just how long would it take to write a book just able to blink the eye.
The acting is amazing, the main guy is just amazing how he does his but just amazing even though he doesnt talk, he is just amazing character. But you have his ex-wife who is just amazing, is by his side and even when he communicates to her about his lover, she is amazing but she is just very pretty to look at it.
But what makes this movie is the directing, the camera is hardly pointed at him but its like you are seeing what he is seeing which is just amazing, so it makes you feel for him and i love this, this makes the movie just way better and i just loved that way he directed it. the FPS view is amazing but in some scenes you see him but in his flashbacks you do. This is a french movie and is just amazing and one you should see.
The opening of this movie is something i will never forget because you just see the hospital staff doing everything to this guy to save his life, from FPS point of view and you never see him you see what he sees. But another scene that is just amazing where he is learning to communicate with letters. It is just amazing see this guy to learn to say things with blinking his eye something i could never do it is just hard to watch this guy do this. See this movie.
So now everyone knows what the PSP 2 looks like or what it is currently called NGP (which i like but know they won't keep that name.) I got to say i'm excited for it, just looking at it i want it, it looks really good and this is coming from a person who was meh on the first psp. The games they show off has me excited like uncharted mas me really excited but a future MGS game could be on there. but just the features and what they are adding has me excited for this thing. with trophies and that helps but its going to be a interesting E3 an when the price and games get announced is going to be very interesting.
I saw Let Me In the other night and why did they even make this movie ? I am a person who loved the original and is in my top 10 films of all time, so this was not a film i wanted to see get made so i finally saaid to myself i will watch it (i did hear mixed things about Let Me In) and i got to say i didn't like it at all.
First off the Original pulled me in, i loved everything about the orginal the story and chemistry between the vampire and the boy becoming friends and more ? but thats what made Let The Right One in for me so i have to buy the main actors like the original but didn't for the remake i just couldnt buy into these 2 actors and i was like i wish i was just watching the original because they copied everything there were a couple new scenes but it felt like the director pissed on the original. Also hated the CGI scenes they had in this movie But there were some good moments like the blood but also the Policeman and the father were just great in this movie and it felt they made the movie just passable. In the end the realtionship between vampire and the boy i just couldnt buy it, So that is the main reason i just couldnt get into this movie but they messed with some characters and scenes that i didn't like but at least i will have my original and the perfect Let The Right One In.
I want to write about another great Nickeloden show called Hey Arnold! which was another great show i loved because after school every day i would watch it and i just loved it. I remember discovering this show with the football head kid when we got cable for the first time when i watched the channel Nickeloden.
If you don't what the show is about "The show stars 4th-grader Arnold, a boy who lives with his paternal grandparents, Phil and Gertrude, proprietors of the Sunset Arms boarding house. In each episode, Arnold often helps a schoolmate solve a personal problem, or encounters a predicament of his own. The show also focuses on Arnold's classmate, Helga, who often treats Arnold cruelly and bullies him constantly. However, a recurring theme of the show is the fact that Helga pretends to dislike Arnold to hide the fact that she is secretly in love with him."
The show was just awesome I thought it was funny but Arnold was so awesome you have the blonde harie and football head but you had this guy who liked helping people and doing everything a school kid did because i remember watching it one day and the bully episode was on where Arnold was dreaming he was crazy and it was just awesome. You have Arnold's best friend Gerald who is always with Arnold and helping, then you got the girl who is a bully but secretly loved Arnold Gerald. Harold was my favorite character he is a big guy in the show he was funny aswell. i did like the halloween eps aswell they were great it had some great episodes and felt like a nickeloden show and was just awesome to watch and it went for a long time aswell which was great and it deserved and show i miss.
Then there was a movie, I remember seeing it at the video shop oneday (when i use to hire out dvd's out every week from video rental shops.) And i knew i had to get it and i did like it but can't remember what it was really like but you can read what its about. I remember it had some great animation, even better from the TV Show which i loved as well. It was so sad to see the show go because i had a lot of memories from the show, from the characters but thats what happens not all shows can last unless your the simpsons.
I want to do more Gaming Updates on my blog so i thought i would write about what games i have been playing lately and a game i bought today LBP2 what i thought about it, Lets start with LBP2.
So i bought LBP2 today and i have been excited about this game seeing the video and what you can do is awesome, with the first game i really liked and it was so cute but tried to get into the creating but never finished anything, but this time i plan on making something But 2 had added some cool things to make the game more awesome plus the game looks really cute. I have only only played up to the 2nd world because i have been messing around with other levels people made.
What i can say about the story is i really like it, i do find it good, funny and stupid. I never cared for the first game story but the story levels are just awesome and so much fun, Finding collecting stickers and such is like addiction because you want everyone even the hard ones and even to put everywhere is just fun. The music is so perfect for this game, its like the first one but the 2nd game just adds so much more to this awesome game.

So through my blog last year i wrote about some of my favorite cartoons like pokemon and Dragon Ball Z. so i thought i would start a new series with this blog Animated Cartoons From My Childhood and want to start with Doug.
Doug was a show i loved, it was really funny with great characters. i remember waking up on Saturday's morning (A day i loved as kid because i had no school) and turning the TV on and seeing Doug in the morning and just loving it. The show is About Doug Moving to town called Bluffington and deals with Doug coming to this town, coming to a new school and making new friends. Thanks to Wikipedia where i did my study on then and everything else. I didn't realise this show started on Nickelodeon and then was canned on there and went onto Disney (Thanks Wiki again). This show showed how you would feel when you go to a new school and a new town, Doug was a shy and clumsy character and thats why i think i connected with him and wasnt the most popular kid was but had his friends and was really funny but he had this cool alter ego Quailman who was so funny but doug made this character funny and doug was funny also had a dog named Porkchop and who was a great character (Also i had a dog so a kid i felt i had something in common with the character Doug). You had Doug's best friend Skeeter who was this blue dude and was a smart guy.
There was the bully in the town/school who was mean to Doug, Roger who was the green guy but i remember him always doing something to doug but when this series went to disney he changed he became rich and started being nice to Doug but still was a little mean to Doug. Also you had Doug's love interest Patti who Doug liked and you never if she does. Skeeter, Doug and her all use to hang out with each other. there are many more characters i could write about but these are the standouts to me.
Doug had some great Episodes and would love to rewatch this show but i can't find a dvd of the show. The show had a formula and is not a classic and the episodes were not classic but were great funny when i was in school. Trying to remember each episode is hard but you had some special when the show changed with roger coming rich and that. Also the first episode was just great and why i love this show, But remember there was a movie called Doug's 1st Movie and i remember i got that on VHS (remember that format before dvd) i watched it lot i just loved that movie and thats how i want to remember that show, the stuff with that lake monster and skeeter and doug hunting it was just great fun as a kid. But this show i will always remember it as being a kid and really loving it and having the connection with it.
Thanks for Reading this blog.
I am going to write about some more cartoons but if you have some other cartoons that you think that i might have liked just tell me because i can't remember every cartoon i will research them on the net (Thanks in advance Wiki) Expect to see more of these blogs in the future like i started at the end of last year but started making it a series now. but there are lot of cartoons i can cover from my childhood like count duckula, street sharks, digimon, Ren & Stimpy and more, hope you like reading this series.
So I wanted to blog about films and games i'm looking forward to in 2011 so i did my game list and revised it and cut both of them down to 6 games and movies i'm looking forward to this year.
6 Films In 20116. Source Code (Ducan Jones) - The Trailer was awesome but the director who directed Moon which was an awesome movie is making this film and looks trippy and so much fun and it will be a good Sci-Fi movie but even better then moon.
5. Thor (Kenneth Branagh) - I am a big fan of comic book films and a big fan of what marvel is doing and to see Thor on the big screen is going to be awesome but the trailer is so good, An Aussie is Thor which i can support. But leading up to the avengers is just awesome.
4. Sucker Punch (Zack Snyder) - Snyders first original movie he has created and it just looks awesome, you just watch the trailer hot wommen fighting dragona, robots and samurai guys. yeah im sold the story might not be good but it looks like its going to be a ton of fun.
3. Battle: Los Angeles (Jonathan Liebsman) - The trailer for this movie makes it look epic, a big alien war movie and feels like black hawk down and really looking forward to that because the last aliend film i saw was district 9 and that was awesome.
2. The Adventures Of Tintin: Secret Of The Unicorn (Steven Spielberg) - Also produced by Peter Jackson and written by Edgar Wright. I have a great realtionship with Tintin loved the cartoon but read all the book over 20 times because i would borror them from the libary every weekend while i was at school, this has an awesome cast but a great story can't wait.
1. Captain America: The First Avenger (Joe Johnston) - This will be the last movie leading up to the avengers and i can't wait to see it i love Captain America and to see him on the big screen played by Chris Evans and no trailer yet but i can't wait for a trailer what this movie can do is going to be awesome plus hugo weaving is red skull can't wait.
6 Games in 2011
6. Batman: Arkham City (Rocksteady Studios) - Big fan of batman relly the only DC character i like and i loved the last game and really can't wait for this game plus the dr hugo stange is just awesome addition.
5. Bulletstorm (People Can fly) - This game just looks so fun, not taking it self seriously and just saying whatever it wants and just doing these epic kills this feels like the next duke nukem game to me.
4. Infamous 2 (Sucker Punch) - I loved the first game and seeing this trailer made we want the game. new location and seeing what i loved for the first and improved in the 2nd i can't wait for this game.

2. Killzone 3 (Guerrilla Games) - I have to say this is one of my favorite FPS series, i know people didnt like the story from the 2nd but i did i thought it was fun and killzone 2 was just a awesome game i even loved the online, played that for a couple of months.
1. LittleBigPlanet 2 (Media Molecule) - I loved the first game and what they have added to the 2nd game makes it one of the most amazing games and its going to be so much fun, loved the demo.
Also LA Noire (Team Bondi) - just one more, i think this looks cool and could be really fun and i love rockstar games and this looks cool and team bondi look like they have done a fun game. Looks like a cool cop dective story.
