A Waste of Time

We've all sat down and watched a movie till the end and then asked ourselves what have I been watching? how come I did not pass out and doze?

Well the last movie I watched gave me this kind of feeling. It was an Anime and if you have not yet heard about my love for anime, now you can and I'll let it be known that I'd steal to watch them.

So I download this anime movie from amazon to let pass time, I donno why I even choose it in the first place from all the other animation movies but I think it must have been it's price which was so affordable that I did not bother to wonder why it was that cheap.

The movie am talking about has the great and mighty (to some) Samuel L. Jackson. Somehow, I've failed to appreciate this guy's movies ever since his scene in Coming to America...and if you can recommend any movie you liked with this dude as the main character, I'll pay handsomely.

Back to the story, the culprit movie was Afro Samurai - Resurrection. It's about some,......I do not even want to bother taking about it just do a google search if you want to know what it's about.

After the movie, I thought whoever made it must have totally been nuts. Making an African(American) a Samurai warrior does not do any justice to the black man. It's just like trying to make an elephant mate with a chicken and some things just never click.

I warn you, if you do go ahead to watch, be prepared to get waste your money, time and finally bored. It's a movie to put if you want to revenge on a friend for making you feel bad once upon a time.

For all Anime Lovers Resident Evil IV a must watch -well If you don't mind some gross stuff.

Am currently reading Douglas Adam's HHGTTG a very interesting read especially on the bus where it's o.k to burst out laughing. Am fighting off the temptation to watch the movie, which has DJ Honda a.k.a Mos Def, whom I already like, cast as Ford Prefect. I've stolen a few peeks at some bits of the movie and although a 2005 movie, I'd definitely recommend it for anyone who wants a fun movie night.

Winding off, I only have less than 2 days of my internship and I've only learnt about 6 Chinese words, shame I'll be moving on but I so much need a small break from work..every one deserves a vacation once in a while -Right?

I'm a massive anime fan myself, but i found those Rezident Evil a little boring and Afro Samurai interesting. Sure the story was a little wack, but you can't take away from the total badassness that is Samuel L.

Eeieee! Emi you must have missed Diehard III or you can look for Basic. Jumper was not that good but nice. L. Jackson movies i hated are Shaft and 51st state. but the brother has it goin on, in general. Ain't seen an animation in decades please recommend.

People, HHGTTG= Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Emi's said...

Thank you Princess.

lol Oyin, I'd not have such patience with a book unless it's for the exam the next day.

Nev, I'll check out that movie.

Dante you liked the Afro Samurai? What was good in that movie? I was going to repeat watching R.E, tht's a good movie.

Carsozy, may be I need to watch more of his movies but he was over shadowed in D.H 3 by Bruce and his hair style in Jumper almost made me boycott watching it.

lol Robyn I hope you are not referring to Wall-E, that was such a great love story but I'd still understand.

lulu, I did like Basic but it was not because of him It was because of the naive Connie Nielsen that I repeated that movie. Am still searching for a movie where I'll give him props. I've not yet done twisted or 1408. I certainly need to watch some more of him.
