June 23 2010- Picture and News

The picture is not my prettiest, but it is a very interesting place. It is the picture of the street where Mark Twain grew up. I went there a few times on a day trip. Actually, I chose this picture because it is from a trip. The news I was talking about in the title is that I'm going to England for six days. I am leaving Thursday night. So I won't be posting on here for a few days, but when I get back I will have some pictures from London to post. (They probably won't be pretty tree pictures though.) I also got a new camera, it's red. :) I also hope when I get back that I will be able to post the award that I got and make a new prettier design with a header.

June 7 2010- The Hideout

Come to play in the woods all day.

June 7 2010- Short Film Reviews and Pictures

Plot: The drama based on the three-year romance between 19th century poet John Keats and Fanny Brawne, which was cut short by Keats' untimely death at age 25. (
My Thoughts: I don't have much to say about it since I watched this about a week ago, and I watched many movies after it. The setting was so beautiful, it was very nice to watch. The actors did a really good job. Exspecially the two main ones Abbie Cornish and Ben Whishaw (the main actors). Anyway Ben Whishaw is awesome, so of course he was good in this movie. It was a nice watch, the ending very sad (though you new it was coming). At some parts it went a little slow.
Plot: The retelling of France's iconic but ill-fated queen, Marie Antoinette. From her betrothal and marriage to Louis XVI at 15 to her reign as queen at 19 and to the end of her reign as queen and ultimately the fall of Versailles. (
My Thoughts: I don't know why everyone hates this movie. I thought it was great! One of my favorite movies even. I am not really sure if it is 100% historically accurate, but it was awesome entertainment. The costumes were great, even if they were a little crazy, but I think they are historically accurate. The settings were beautiful too. But no matter how much I loved the movie there were a few things that bothered me. I did not like the modern day music, though it added to the feel of the movie (does that even make sense?), it was just annoying and it seemed to wrong. I wished it showed her execution, though that would certainly take away from the feel of the movie. Last, I did not like their American accents. I have seen 3 movies based in France, this movie, Perfume, and Dangerous Liaisons. In Perfume all the people had English accents (I don't really care though I still loved the movie), in Dangerous Liaisons they all had American accents, and in this movie they all had American accents. When can there be a movie based in France with French accents? Ok so there are my problems, but I still loved the films. Kirsten Dunst (she's Claudia from Interview with the Vampire, and wait no one has a proper French accent in that movie either) was awesome, even if she did have a American accent. The movie was funny exspecially Jason Schwartzman. The movie was also a visual treat!
Plot: A dramatization of the turbulent first years of Queen Victoria's rule, and her enduring romance with Prince Albert. (
My Thoughts: As you can see this week, I was on a historical fiction phase. This one I wasn't really sure if I was going to like, I was going to see it in the theater, but no one would go with me (I always have to be with someone in the movie theater, because I just love telling people facts in the middle of movies). I actually liked it. I liked how Victoria changed as the movie went on. At the beginning of the film Victoria was kind of childish, but as the movie went on she became more adult and responsible. The movie was very good and interesting. I think the guy who played Prince Albert was great. The setting was beautiful, though not as pretty as Bright Star or Marie Antoinette. The costumes were nice too. I didn't like how at the end when they were giving all the facts about Queen Victoria how they showed a black screen with words on it and then a little bit of film. It annoyed me a little. I was surprised, but this film wasn't that boring. It was actually quite good.

Plot: Selene, a beautiful vampire warrior, is entrenched in a war between the vampire and werewolf races. Although she is aligned with the vampires, she falls in love with Michael, a werewolf who longs for the war to end. (
My Thoughts: I decided to take a quick brake from history to watch this film, which apparently a lot of people like. My thought is that it had very little plot. I was more just action, and for people who are wanting to see a horror movie, this movie is not horror, it is action (I have nothing wrong with action movies). Selene was cool, she had a cool accent, and she kicked werewolf butt (yes I do like the vampires better). Her character had little depth, but still out of all the characters she had the most depth. I didn't really see any real romance between the Michael character and Selene, just a little kiss to tell you they liked each other thats all. I did not like Michael at all, I don't know why though, maybe because he seemed so not classy. The vampire house or whatever you would call it was cool. The one thing this movie was it was very nice to look at, the visuals were super cool. Everyone says this movie is sooo violent, but I really don't see how. So this is not the best vampire movie in the world (everyone knows that Let the Right One In is). It is more action then plot.

I also saw Let the Right One In this week but I am not going to post my thoughts on it because I've seen it so many times. Next time I watch movie I will write a review right after I watch it so I will have more to say.

Pictures from the movies (oh how we all love pictures):

Marie Antoinette:

June 4 2010- Picture from the early 1900s

I didn't take the picture, obviously. But my family found it in a old family book with a lot of newspaper articles dated from the late 1800s to the 1950s. I am guessing that this picture was taken right before WW1 because it said on the back of this picture, which I will post some other day, it said back in 1906, so I think it is right before WW1.

May 28 2010- Rated R Movies and Teens

   Since it is summer vacation, I have had a lot of free time to think and play on the computer. Well, recently I have been thinking about teens and rated R movies, since I am a teen and I absolutely love rated R movies. Well, I was reading other peoples opinions on should teens watch rated R movies. Well, a lot of them were really strict mothers. You see, I had a big problem with a lot of the opinions (I'm not saying people aren't intitled to their opinions), but it was just so annoying.

   I am aloud to see almost any movies that are not rated over R. The only type of movies I am not aloud to see is devil worship movies. So obviously my parents are not very strict in the movie section, or really in books or music either (actually they get mad at my little sister sometimes, since she listens to Kisha who is absolutely disgusting). I don't see why they would be, since I don't see why you would be strict in the movie section, when at school they learn everything they would see in movies.

    Here I am going to give a example of each section that movies are grading on to give them their rating and how you can see them in a teens life.

1. You can read about it in books. In fact a lot of YA novels has sexual situations in them, most of the adult novels I have read have extreme sexual situations it.
2. In school there is a lot of sexuality. I have seen people making out in the hallway. I have seen pregnant girls in my school. I have heard guys call girls sluts and lays. I have heard boys in my classes talk about doing it. Not to mention all the sexual comments you here.
3. Your family members might say sexual things, you could see your family members do sexual things.
4. Internet

1. Haven't most people seen there family members naked. Seriously what is so bad about seeing it in a movie? It is the same either way, unless they are mutants or something.
2. Beaches, well they are not exactly naked, but some people are pretty close.
3. Yourself, seriously it is the same as looking at yourself in the mirror.
4. Internet

1. Ever seen a fight at school?
2. Books often describe violence with tons of violence.
3. Tv, I don't think tv sensors violence too well, as they do cursing. Like when I was watching 30 Days of Night on tv. Even though it was supposed to be edited, I can still claim it to be one of the most violent movies I ever seen even above Sweeney Todd.
4. Newspapers can tell you stories of violence and murderer.
5. Internet

1. Ever walked into a Halloween store.
2. This is not a really good example, but you could of seen a murder of something.
3. Internet

Scary/ Intense Sequences:
1. Has the power ever turned off at you at school?
2. Halloween
3. Haunted Houses
4. When two family members fight it can become pretty intense.
5. Movie trailers can be very creepy.
6. Books

1. At school you can hear extreme amounts of cursing.
2. Your family might curse at home.
3. Anywhere you can hear cursing.
4. Internet

1. Tons of adults drink all the time.
2. They have wine at synagoges/churches.
3. Other kids.
4. People smoke everywhere.
5. At school I've heard people selling drugs in the back of the class.
6. On the streets. Ever been to a big city?

So that is pretty much it.

May 27 2010- I Haven't Posted

I haven't posted in a long while. It is mostly because I have nothing to say. Well, I was thinking about this blog and what to do with it. After a long while, I finally got an idea. I will post some of my pictures on it. I take a lot of pictures, well I don't take pictures all the time, but everytime I go somewhere I take tons of pictures. So I decided I should post some pictures. Some of the places I have been, but most of nature because that is what I take pictures of.

I also set up a little display on my desk to take a picture of for my header. I believe it looks ok, but I am not really sure. All I have to do is wait until it is sunset so it will look pretty. For this one I am going to take the header picture with my parents good camera instead of the camera that takes really bad pictures that I usually use. But that means it is going to take a long while for the picture to be done, since I can not just load it on to the computer. So ok that is pretty much all I have to say for today. Maybe on Friday I will post some of my pictures. So too da loo.

May 21 2010- The Past School Week

The last full week of school is over. I am glad. Teachers this year were trying to rush to the end of the book. Any way, since I have nothing else to say about school. I guess I will talk about my other accounts. I have a few other accounts on other websites of the internet.
Here Is A List:

Shadowclanleader1 (yes a very geeky title)


Vampirecat613 (really its one of my friend's accounts but i made almost all the videos)

Violaundviolin (little account shared)

Ok, I guess I will only talk about youtube, so that is pretty much it for the day.
Oh yes, for my other blog, my friend and I are posting one short story each of us wrote, sometime soon, so look out for it.

May 16 2010- A Design

I have made a design it is not to good yet since I need more time to make the header nice and maybe take new pictures. I also need a better background, so eventually I'll make one I might see if I can take a picture at whatever place I am going to go today. I have no possible idea of what I am going to do to this blog, well in the design sense. I am getting a little tired of nature pictures.

May 15 2010- A New Start

Yes, I have created another blog and deleted my hopeless movie review blog, I figured that if I want to write parental movie reviews I will write them here. Now, you are probably wondering, why should you create another blog if you have a perfectly functional book blog called Books are a Gardens . Well, I sometimes get these thoughts that I just want to share, but I don't think they have to do really anything with books. So this is my way of writing them. A lot of things will be on this blog if I ever get around to using it. Maybe movie reviews, maybe music suggestions, maybe my thoughts on events. A lot of things can come on here we just have to see how this is going to work out. I will work on a design for this blog. Something probably either purple or read. I might have to take some new pictures for this one of maybe I can find something suitable for this in ones I have already taken. Probably not, after all they are all pictures of trees. Well, ta ta for now. I have to change the colour scheme.
