Karl Ruprecht Kroenen III

Prometheus. No spoilers. Going to the movies again after 8 months and 20 days.

So, the last time I was at the movies was when I saw Toy Story 3 on the 13th of September 2011.

Last night, I saw Prometheus on the late late show with Johan and Peter.
I had to drink two double espressos before I went in cause it started at 23:20 and I have been working all day and it is a two hour movie.

There are no spoilers here:






I must say the 3D experience was absolutely mind blowing!
I have been complaining in the past times I've watched a 3D movie that all is fine and well but many times everything gets blurry and rather shaky. Well, that is a thing of the past. At least with this particular movie.
There were some moments, in the beginning, I thought I was flying! I felt it in my gut that I was lifted from my bloody sit. God damn it is SO beautiful!  Worth every penny! (And every extra penny for the comfy reclining sit)

One down side is that I had completely forgotten how cold it can get in the movie theatre. I was fucking freezing. Great ventilation, breathing really good as if I was on oxygen, but I froze my ass off. Next time I'm bringing an extra sweater.

The movie.
I really really really enjoyed it. I have a lot of complaints about some continuation issues,
flimsy naive story, rather week dialogues here and there, but the journey was incredible! The production value was impeccable! A visual marvel! And the Gigerpalooza just pure poetry! 
I loved it!!!

The characters ... well ... not because I am naturally evil, but ... I don't think I have ever disliked  the main characters of a movie this much. The villains were my heroes and the main characters, the good guys, were a pair of infected testicles with syphilitic pustules. YUK!
I fucking hated them both. One, a fucking disgusting hippie who believes in Santa Claus. And the other, an uncivilized hick with shit for brains. I could say more but then that would include spoilers so I'm shutting up. Whatever. I don't wanna think about it cause it makes me angry.
Besides that, I would see it again in a heartbeat! It is a bloody journey to that other place!
I'm quite satisfied :D


Now lets' see ... I still haven't seen Dark Shadows so maybe it is time this week! :D


P.S. I must say the experience of not going with my previous movie buddy was rather bizarre, and a little sad for a moment. I guess I yet have to discover bizarre, slightly melancholic moments, as many of my activities included that buddy.
It feels he was imaginary ... Ah well ... shame ...
But life is funny that way no?

For now, it is raining outside and soon I'll have a warm hug to attend to ...

Gloom

listening while sorting my old clothes ... ...

remembering ... one of my favorites in this album ...



It's over

You must have brought the bad weather with you
The sky's the colour of lead
All you've left me is a feather
On an unmade bed

It's always me whenever there's trouble
The world does nothing but turn
And the ring it fell off my finger
I guess I'll never learn

But it's over, it's over, it's over
I'm getting dressed in the dark
Our story ends before it begins
I always confess to everyone's sins
The nail gets hammered down
And it's over, let it go

So don't go and make a big deal out of nothing
Well it's just a storm on a dime
And I've always found there's nothing
That money can't buy
I've already gone to the place I'm going
There's no place left to fall
And there's something to be said
For saying nothing at all

And it's over, it's over, it's over
It's done forgotten and through
No one cares what it's all for
You'll be buried in the clothes
That you've never wore
So keep your suitcase by the door
It's over, let it go ....
