Wizards and fairies and Zombies, Oh My!

recently in my never ending quest for the perfect desktop Wallpaper i came across a collection by a man named Jason Chan. i was immediately impressed by the workmanship of his art and the dark almost comedic nature of some of them. his art has been featured in such more well known things as the companion comic to I am Legend. As i am typing this i am admiring my new favorite desktop, Zombie Playground By Jason Chan

Movie review- Changeling

Changeling is a movie that kept me literally on the edge of my seat, moment for moment the movie twists and turns but at no point seems unbelievable. with most "based on a true story" type movies there are large chunks of the actual story that are sacrificed in either early stages of productions or in moments where the editors make the critical choice to keep the timing and flow of the movie smooth, in changeling these details do not seem to be lost in the least bit, i actually took the time to research the actual events that the movie is based on and the movie stay true to the original story almost "to a T" the imagery in the movie is incredibly striking and very historically accurate, Angelina Jolie is absolutely incredible as the Christine Collins, the mother of a young boy who disappears one day leaving no trace of himself or his suspected abductor. After a five month long investigation the LAPD tells christine that they have found her son! and that he is arriving by train the next day. but when Christine meets the train and sees the boy that has arrived, he is not her son. this is just the first of the many gut wrenching twist and turns that the movie has to offer

Movie review- Milk

It is a rare pleasure for me to see a movie that is so utterly moving that it makes me want to change the way i treat people of any color, any creed, any orientation and any opinion. It was my distinct pleasure to see the Gus Van Sant's telling of the life story of Harvey milk. i cannot in the 350 word limit text box supplied here express how thoroughly i enjoyed this movie and how touched i was by devotion to this movie of the people both on an off the screen. since i was a young child i was always confused why it should matter whether a person is Gay or straight, white or black, muslim or catholic or anything else for that matter, to me people have always been merely people. after watching this film i now see the true face of sheer hate and pride, i cannot describe the anger i felt watching the newsreel footage of people like John briggs or Anita Bryant who are so Obviously Blinded by conservative religious views that they begin to compare homosexuality to Pedophilia or Bestiality listening to these incredibly ignorant people made my blood boil. 

but this film is a true emotional masterpiece and is truly worth taking time out of your day to see it.
