Wow, I haven't been on this shit in a minute.

What's everyone up to? Do you all still even exist?

42. House of Voices: House of Voices is probably one of the best movies I saw in all of 2010 and it made me develop a huge girl crush on Lou Doillon. I’m not sure if director Pascal Laugier was trying to one up himself when he went ahead and made Martyrs four years later, but for me, I think Saint Ange is a million times more enjoyable. The film is set in the late 50s and is about a girl, Anna, who goes to help out at an orphanage, but said girl is secretly pregnant. Eventually Anna starts hearing voices and the footsteps of children, but another woman she works with doesn’t hear anything and thinks Anna might very well be crazy. Anna meets one of the orphans, Judith, who has not found a home because she actually is crazy. Judith is the only person who I guess… believes? Anna? And in turn helps her find out what the deal behind the ghost voices is.

43. To Let (Para Entrar A Vivar): As I believe I’ve mentioned before, the Films to Keep You Awake series is just the Spanish version of the Horrorfest films and yes, it’s just as bad. However, Para Entrar a Vivar is definitely the best out of all of them. A couple is looking for a new apartment to rent and gets trapped in a place with their crazy bitch of a real estate agent. Come to find out, they weren’t the first people she’d done this to. I can’t remember why exactly she kept them in there, but of course there was a reason. There isn’t much to say about it since it’s just another mass produced horror film, but it just happens to have better qualities than other.

44. Christmas Tale (Cuentos De Navidad): This is probably my second to least favorite out of the Films to Keep you Awake series. It’s just stupid and not scary. A group of little kids with an overactive imagination find a woman who’s dressed like Santa and stuck in a hole…. Yeah, what? She has a ton of money, too since she just robbed a bank. Right, okay. She asks the boys to help her and some of them run to find help, while others at first attempt to help her out and then change their mind and decide they should just leave her there as long as they can until she gives them her money. Oh, did I mention two of the boys really like zombie movies and try to turn her into a zombie? It didn’t work, but she’d been in the hole for so damn long that when she gets out, she looks like shit and attacks them and they think it worked. Most of the movie is just a bunch of whogivesafuck and has too much downtime with little to no dialogue or just too damn much random talking.

45. Spectre (Regreso A Moira): When I say that The Christmas Tale is my second to least favorite, it’s because this is my absolute least favorite. It is riddled with random sex scenes, but still manages to be one of the most boring movies on the planet. I was able to get a few good screen caps out of the film, but pretty much anything with excessive blood spillage is good for a still. The whole movie is some old guy thinking about when he was a young boy and had a creepy obsession with an older woman that lived way outside of town and everyone thought she was a whore and a witch, but he was in love with her regardless, so he’d go visit her and they’d have a strange and probably illegal relationship. Then I guess said old guy starts seeing the woman random places, but obviously it can’t be her since he’s really fucking old so she’d be dead as fuck by then… or maybe it IS her… OOOOOHhhohohOOOOooo00oO00oohh!!

46. Blame (La Culpa) : I’m seriously almost as bored writing about these fucking movies as I was when I was watching them. Luckily, this makes 6 out of 6 Films to Keep Me Awake. In this case it was more like 6 Films to Keep Me Asleep. This movie is about lesbian lovers. One of them has a gynecology office right in her own dining room and the other gets knocked up by a real life man. You can only imagine where this is headed… I could just be making shit up, but I’m pretty sure I remember something about an aborted fetus running around the kitchen and attacking a bitch. Just putting that out there. If this movie is #46 on my list for 2010, then I probably watched it around this time last year, so I can’t remember, but if that’s the case, I think it might single handedly make the film worth watching.

61. Cadillac Records: I don’t give a shit about the real life Cadillac Records and I only watched this because Gabe wanted to *eye roll* All I remember is Adrien Brody and interracial relationships.

Please excuse my random ass Google image stills of the movies. All my screen caps for these movies are on my desktop and I'm not gonna bother.

37. Case 39: So once again, another movie where you’re not sure what the problem is and who to blame. Renee Zellweger plays a social worker who is dealing with a case about a little girl with extremely abusive parents. And by extremely abusive, I mean they tried stuffing her in the oven, that kind of shit. Renee Zellweger ends up getting custody of the kid or some shit, but it starts getting really weird at her house, too. Bradley Cooper’s in it and he’s all hott as hell as usual. For the most part the movie is pretty decent and fairly intense, but if you know me, you know I can’t stand bad CGI. That alone can make or break even the best of films. There are maybe two or three scenes, one in particular that has some pretty ridiculous computer effects, but it’s really not too shabby as a whole.

38. P2: I both love and hate this movie in that it’s pretty decent and pretty creepy and shit, but at the same time, who the fuck has a whole parking garage to their disposal and can’t find a place to hide for the night? It’s one of those things where of COURSE her cell phone dies, of COURSE the last possible person who can help her doesn’t, and so on and so forth. I don’t remember specifics since I saw this ya know, a year ago, but yeah, it is pretty ridiculous.

39. Clash of the Titans: This was my first 3D movie and what I think everyone should know about 3D movies is that when looking through polarized lenses, you must sit straight and look straight at the screen or else they won’t work, which pretty much means you can’t chillax like I do in the seats, but that’s irrelevant aside from the fact that this movie gave me a headache. I am a huge fan of Greek mythology, but I don’t know names and stuff well enough to tell you just how accurate of a movie this was. I also have yet to see the original so I can’t give you a comparison between that and this remake. So yeah, other than all that, I’d say it was an incredible movie. It’s so visually appealing, not just because it’s 3D (I know this because I took my glasses off for most of the film) and had plenty of action and whatever the hell else you look for in a movie.

41. Bird with the Crystal Plumage: I have to say that as much as I love the shit out of Dario Argento, this is probably one of my least favorite films of his. It’s further on the giallo side than on the horror side and I personally think straight giallo films are a little too boring for my taste. Albeit, this movie is still really good and has great blood and intense scenes; it just drags on in between said scenes and when I’m watching movies on a computer the way that I do, or you take smoke breaks the way my mom does when she watches movies (I HATE THAT BY THE WAY. FUCK) it’s easy to think ‘oh it’s cool, I can get away with not watching this part herp da derp!” and then the next second you have no clue what the fuck is going on, who that person is and why they’re there.

13. Boo: Teenagers go into abandoned building. Teenagers see shitty CGI ghosts. Teenagers start dying horrible CGI deaths. The end.

36. Dorothy Mills: This is one of those movies where you can’t really tell what’s going on; whether it’s possession, split personality, or ghosts. Where you can’t tell if the kid is crazy or if it’s the adults. It’s well made and it jerks you back in forth with everything that goes on it without dragging on and making you mad that the film hasn’t just made up it’s mind. The downside is that it can get rather confusing and most people might have the twist in the end found out before the first half is over.

104. Superstar The Karen Carpenter Story: This is probably one of the most terrifying movies I’ve ever seen in my history of sinema. Why, yes, Britnee, anorexia is a scary thing! No, it’s not just that… it’s that it’s a story of anorexia told through fucking Barbie dolls. I went into this movie expecting a documentary, not an actual film with no actual actors. It’s not necessarily good or bad and it’s neither interesting nor boring, but it most certainly is a train wreck of a film in that you really can’t stop watching it once it starts.

158. Easy A: As many of you may or may not know, I fell into a hole that was made entirely of newer romantic comedies and it took me a long time to get out. This was actually my last one for the year and I guess you can say I went out with a bang. I thought this movie was great. The downside of this movie is probably really only Emma Stone. I can’t stand her. I hate her face, I hate the way she talks, I hate her mannerisms, I hate thinking of the other movies she’s been in and I sure as hell hate that she looks better in corsets than I probably do. If any of you don’t know the premise of the movie, Emma Stone plays some nobody high school girl named Olive who becomes somebody when a rumor that she had sex gets around (even though she didn’t). Because high school is totally like that right? Last I checked, if someone was rumored to have sex, they’re a slut for the rest of their high school career. However, the whole entire movie is terribly unrealistic from her relationship with her parents (I mean, really, who’s parents are that cool?) to her vlogging about everything that the movie is about. Because of this rumor, nerdy, fat, and generally unwanted boys are coming up to her left and right to ask if she’ll say they had sex or she gave ‘em a handy for a monetary reward of sorts. In turn, Olive is getting attention like she’s always wanted. Eventually, the reality of it all kicks in and girls start getting jealous and catty or in some cases, uber religious and talk shit. Olive then stands up for herself by purchasing slutty Fredrick’s of Hollywood type corsets and camis and sewing an A for Adultery on it; an idea she got from reading The Scarlett Letter in her English class. I’ve got a copy of that I still have to read… I hear it’s pretty boring…but that’s besides the point. Anyway, yeah, this movie’s not too bad. It’s not the best movie I’ve ever seen, but that’s because I have high standards and you can’t expect me to really love much.

I pretty much hate everything again right now (But Britnee? Don’t you always hate everything anyway?).
The inside of my nose is so fucked up I can barely breathe and I don’t think I can grab any sort of medication anywhere that isn’t expired. Why the fuck is it so hard to use shit up before it’s been old for two years and why the fuck is it so hard to buy NEW medicine? Goddammit all to fucking hell.

I went to that interview and I’m pretty sure I did horribly. I had a feeling I wasn’t going to be in there very long anyway because when the lady who called me to set it up told me what times she had open, they were 15 minute time slots. I’d say I was in there for a little less than that. They asked questions like “what does teamwork mean to you?”, “what do you know about the Industrial Revolution?”, “What are your strengths/greatest weaknesses?”, “what would your old boss say about you if we called him?” and then the dreaded “tell us about yourself”.

I’m pretty sure if I was graded on those questions, I’d have gotten a D- if not an F. I’m so pissed. There were three people interviewing me and one of them goes “ok, well this is a two to three part interview process and we’re just starting, so we’ll go ahead and contact you! *smilesmile*” and that was it… Then when I got in the car my mom pointed out that my septum ring had been out the whole time… so I can only imagine that it hurt my chances more than anything else.

Did I mention I can’t fucking breathe?

I’m just going to sit in bed all day and watch as many movies as possible and then slit my wrists or something.

Final Project Amy

I have finally finished my final project thank fucking god and I have all the pictures up on my flickr so go check those out.

I made a tumblr.

I'm trying to keep it on the DL for the most part because I talked sooo much shit about it, but after seeing so many amazing tumblrs with goth shit and not all that bogus hipster bullcrap, I gave in.
Plus I needed something to do with this ridiculous amount of free time I'm having.

I seriously haven't seen the sunlight in like, a month. If I go outside, it's when it's dark already.
It's making me really pale, though. It's a beautiful thing.

I want to try using Livejournal more often, but I don't have much to blog about. Except I have so much to blog about... I dunno.

I'm sure I can work something out.

In the mean time, add me on Facebook.

24 November 2010 @ 01:26 am
Something like two weeks ago my work was closed because the landlord kicked us out, so since something like two weeks ago, I've been unemployed.
I turned in a ton of applications and even had an interview at a wings place, but I don't have a definite answer as to whether or not I have the job, so in the mean time... I'm enjoying the first chance I've had in over three years to have an unnatural hair color.

Obviously the flash did a number on it, but for the most part it's that bright really. I FUCKING LOVE IT.

Tessa : Film
Originally uploaded by dude britneeee
Finally got to kill Tessa. It was pretty much awesome to say the least and this is my favorite shot out of all of them. I took most of them with her actually laying in the grass, as you can see from the other shot that is on my flickr, but whatever.
