THE HAPPENIS !#!$!#!@!!!!


Admittedly, I've never seen The Sixth Sense. The only reason is that the ending was spoiled for me before I got the chance, so I just felt like I wouldn't get that same jaw-dropping surprise at the end as (unspoiled) first time viewers would. However, having seen bits and pieces of it, I respected the material, and the director for that matter. With Unbreakable and Signs, under M. Night's belt, it seemed what we had here was a gifted storyteller; capable of creating an atmosphere and suspense. He followed those up with The Village, which generally received a mix reaction, but for the most part I enjoyed it. Even though there were issues with the way he cut it, I thought he still managed to craft an interesting story. Then came Lady in the Water. Something had gone awry here. I have no doubt that if he were to remove all that self-referential bullshit, that it would have been alright. This was more of a rant than a movie. But you know, at least it had good acting by Paul Giamatti.

That brings us to The HapPenis. Boy... let me tell you about this movie. There are few times... FEW, when a group of friends see a movie, and there is a unanimous feeling towards it. Not everyone will like everything that everyone else does, that just the fact of life; you can't please every single person. I went to see this movie with 7 friends, and it was unanimous... this movie sucked!!! The story? Shitty. The acting? Shitty. The dialogue? Shitty! Those are the only words that can be used to describe this. It's so far removed from his other works that it's hard to believe that this was made by the same director/writer/shit-disturber. MNS has surely fallen from greatness, and it must hurt.

The only thing that saved this movie was totally unrelated to the actual movie! With about 15 minutes left of the movie, the projector had an error and shut off. The manager walked in and promised the audience refunds. How great is this? This, my friends, is proof that there is a God. He knew we were suffering, He came down and saved us from this movie. How I love Thee.

So save yourself some time. Do not go watch The HapPenis. There is one small ray of hope though. When you hit rock bottom, there's nowhere to go but up... that is unless MNS likes it down there, but let's hope not.

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

The Science of God

Not too long ago, two of my friends had posted their thoughts on evolution and creationism. Both friends shared similar sentiments on the topic (you can view Skylar's here and Keith's here ). Coincidence or not, shortly before they made their postings, I purchased a book called The Science of God by Dr. Gerald Schroeder, which was based on the same topic. Unfortunately, at the time of my friend's postings, I had not finished the book, but now I have. In The Science of God , Schroeder attempts to debunk the dichotomy that exists between science/evolution and creationism. He tries to show that there can exist a duality between the two and that discoveries in science actually prove the story of creation in the bible. The book can be roughly divided into three categories that being the concepts of time, the second with the biology of evolution, and lastly the concept of free will. In describing time, he focuses on the 6 days that are explained in the beginning of Genes

MAX PAYNE was oh so PAYNEFUL!!!

What a failure this was. An EPIC FAILURE~! And I'll tell you why. This movie had everything going for it which was why it made the failure seem so huge. It had star power. It had a very competent director. The visual style was there. It had a simple storyline... a storyline that was basically fuck-proof because it's so basic. The effects (when there were any) were also pretty great. So where did they go wrong? Pacing. If the first two-thirds of the film was like the last third, I think it would have been a fine film. Not great by any means, but fine. I mean, there was hardly any action in the first hour. It was all talk and build up. Every 5 minutes I was saying to myself, "okay, something cool is gonna happen now". But it never came. I think had they added 2 or 3 big action sequences during that hour, that it would have helped the film breathe and flow better. I mean, didn't they realize that the source material was an action game? Max Payne is
