JUNO.

juno.jpg

JUNO was released in Singapore on valencrime’s day.

While i know it was a hit in the states and peeps there are totally
sick of hearing anymore publicity of Juno,
i’m still gonna do my part in helping with sales of the soundtrack
which fit the movie to a T.

Its not an album you can listen to all the time
and neither can it feed your hungry ears for songs with mind blowing lyrics
but its still a steal and its quite the indie-twee-pop which gets to me at times.

The trailer itself destroyed the spunk and stole the good lines of the movie
but nonetheless i believe Jason Reitman produced exactly what he wanted
a TYFS-esque movie which could hit the mainstream and induce us with his
dry humour which at times can be too cute for my liking.

I implore you to watch the movie still, it being far better than most films showing.

grab my 2 favorite songs from the movie and remember
to get the album here.
I have added the recording of ‘anyone else but you
sung by ellen page and michael cera themselves.

mp3|the killers(ft. lou reed)tranquilize
mp3|the killersthe ballad of michael valentine
mp3|the killersshadowplay (joy division cover)

if you dont DL them you must be a effin’ fool.

a highly anticipated film in my opinion not just because cannes received it well.

it has joy division splashed all over and of course its a biopic of ian curtis
so that makes it a MUST watch film.

see the trailer below.

and watch it you fools.

the last kiss

the biggest miss of 2006?
the last kiss has a stellar cast.
one not of epic proportions.
but one of honest actors with honest day to day unspectacular conversations.
while it was simple.it was absolutely true.
the choices you make.the grey on infidelity.the truth on wanting more.
may we never know.

casey affleck was pure brilliance.tom wilkinson insane.
zach braff was wonderful and jacinda barrett always always lovely.
theres also the awesome music which i thought could have had more depth,
but it was still at least 8/10.
superb choice.

heres some stuff from the soundtrack.

remy zeroprophecy (that rachel bilson scene)
joshua radinstar mile
ray lamontagnehold me in your arms

please buy it here.or hear more of it.
and watch it dammit.

midnight grey

a nelson is a wrestling hold, one of submission.

a half nelson is a movie – one about dialectics, to be exact.

“you see- history, is about change. change comes from opposites pushing against each other,” says dan dunne, a teacher in an innercity school (played to perfection by ryan gosling). “this happens until one side gets stronger than the other.”

he illustrates this by arm-wrestling a student.

that scene is the movie. opposite forces – a crackhead whos a good teacher. a drug dealer who has a heart. “night and day”. on and on.

it is about how one cannot exist without the other because, you see, “they need each other”.

maybe thats what Yuri Orlov (Nicolas Cage) understood in the movie lord of war. if he didn’t sell illegal arms, someone else would take his place. “i might as well do it,” he reasoned. i can’t argue with that.

and so midnight in the garden of good and evil would not be as beautiful if it lacked either forces as well. even midnight itself is a threshold plane – a fragile point between two conditions. it is a grey point.

instant tragic beauty.

maybe michael jackson was wrong when he sang “black or white”. it implies exclusion, an either/or. it denies the possibility of the inbetween, which is a lovely concept.

it is lovely purely because it gives chance a chance.

black as coal is a sad state. we’d – i’d – like to think there’s at least a smidgen of white within our tarred souls. “at least I started white”, one can shrug at the very least. a deux ex machina- only this time, without a god.

a redemption crutch. we can be beautiful walking contradictions which without, we would not be.

and so like midnight, we too will be tragically beautiful.

it lets us be pure without needing to be pure. a half-fuck baptism (/submission) that is easy to believe in.

perfect. everyone should watch.
