金福南杀人事件始末

Image這部片雖然是恐怖驚悚片,但是我看完後心情很沈重,電影敘述一個鄉下淳樸的女人如何蛻變成殘酷的兇手的一生的縮影,很令我震撼。我看到在韓國偏僻的小島,嚴重的男尊女卑、家暴、亂倫的默許,以及在那樣艱苦的生活環境,難為女人的多數竟然也都是女人。令我悲傷的是,兇手視為從小到大的知心朋友,在許多關鍵時刻並沒有挺身而出,反而躲在旁觀看自己好友受欺負。反之,兇手從小保護知心朋友不受欺負,即使成年,保護被下藥的知心朋友不被小叔性侵犯。在兇手的女兒被其父在爭吵中,推倒頭受重擊致死時,那位知心朋友並沒幫兇手在警方面前當目擊證人,反而舉例不在場證明。人生並不都是公平公義的,如何在日常生活中,在能力許可,伸出援手,讓公義能得以伸張。

Insidious

Having watching a lot of horror, trill, and suspicious movies. “Insidious” is the only horror movie that made me goosebumps. In order not to feel too scary, I was eating some carrots, listening to bird tweeting, and texting to my friend at the same time to get some distract. Director is James Wan. The story plot, sound effects, and ambient atmosphere are quite successful.

I especially like the pale-East-European-look-doll-like ghosts. They have no facial expression all the time but give a suddenly smile.

SAW 3D

You Can't Hide
This Game Has A New Design
Fear Suffering Death
You Haven't Seen Anything Yet
All Of My Work Has Been Leading To This

It was a chilly afternoon. I went to watch SAW 3D on Oct. 30th. I love the intense story plot even though there were some questions unanswered in the movie. Before entering the showroom, I bought a huge pack of popcorn and a drink. When the movie began, I almost finished one-fourth of the popcorn. The first scene was about the triangle love relationship. The woman who was hung from the ceiling, one of the three victims, manipulated the two guys who were also trapped in front of the chainsaws. In the tape of Jigsaw's recording, one of three victims had to die. The clock was ticking. The two guys finally made a decision by sacrificing the woman. She was cut in half by the chainsaw under her waist. When the camera shot the intestine dropping off from the woman’s body on the floor, I almost suddenly threw out the one-fourth popcorn from my stomach. The intestine was so real and so fresh. The triangle composition of the crime scene displayed in a spotless glass showroom of the center of the busy city was very creative. It was symbolic of religious ritual.

Ironically, outside of the glass showroom gathering more and more people. They were watching, chatting, and recording the crime scene with their cell phone. Few of them noticed it was a real crime and they called 911. As you can see the official SAW 3D trailer, the policemen always came in the last minute. It was late and couldn’t help. The woman got her judgment.

My body became so intense during the movie. My feet and hands were cold too. It was hard to sit threw the movie but I still kept my eyes open. This is the best intense horror movie I’ve ever seen in my life.

Heart Broken

Girlfriend, Yelena Gavrilko, 1989, 10 min., is a surrealistic view of a poignant and lonely relationship between a fisherman and his fish. After watching this animation, I feel very sad and that movie draws me to think about my last relationship that end up in the beginning of July this year. I tried to be strong and participate more activities. I have more job interviews, side jobs opportunities, new friendship since I moved to Brooklyn. It seems I have better luck. However, when the sun goes down, my mood turns blue. I want to avoid sadness, but my heart hasn’t recovered. It’s sad. I use more alcohol to release my pain and fall asleep easier at night. This movie gave me such big impact. I really don’t wanna cry now.

Surrogates

Surrogates 將會成為未來人類生活中的一部份,每個人可以用最理想的面目,身體和性別行走在城市空間。一切似乎近乎理想,但是人類過度仰賴科技將尚失直接最真切的情感互動,與人,或與自然。一旦 Surrogates 中央系統停頓,所有的Surrogates將癱瘓整座城市的運作。不管如何,我還是很樂觀的預見Surrogates的誕生。Albert Einstein 曾說  "Imagination is more important than knowledge",因為有想像力,一切沒有不可能發生的事,在於發生的早晚,在於科技的成熟度。 至於目前的 chatroom 則是顯微的 Surrogates 運作,使用者 ID 則是每位 chatroom users的 surrogate,用不同的暱稱呈現不同的氣質給其他使用者,藉而吸引其他使用者達到社交的目的。原來 Surrogates 的概念早已運用在網際聊天室。

John Bonner's slime mold movies

K.D., a post doctor from Princeton University, sent me this film. It is quiet interesting. He studies really weird creatures. Normally, they live in soil as unicellular amoeba but when starved, they aggregate into a slug. The slug crawls around until it finds an exposed spot. It culminates and turns into a tree that carries amoeba spores. Spores spread and everything starts over at some new place.

That film inspires me a conceptual idea to create an experiment film. I told K.D. my idea to cooperate a film production with him. He was excited and both of us need to think and give our film a symbolic meaning.

Mike! / Street Fighter / Watchmen

Mike做的葡萄酒煙薰filet mignon和奶油蘑菇菠菜真是太好吃了

比我這輩子在餐廳吃過的牛排還要好吃

桌上精緻的餐具、氣氛好的蠟燭、還有美味的葡萄酒

打開Mike家的櫃子,廚具、各種調味料真的比我家的多好幾倍!

煙薰之前,他先把黑胡椒粉、橄欖油、鹽巴放進保鮮袋再放入兩塊filet mignon包好入味擺進冰箱

過段時間,再把入味好的filet mignon在平底鍋用橄欖油雙面和側邊稍微煎一下

他說,這是煎過的表皮是skin可以確保煙薰的過程中,肉汁仍在肉裡面 😀

在煙薰牛排的過程中,還用電子溫度計插進肉裡面

他說溫度需要到達145度才算medium rare

這樣肉的中間才是漂亮的purple (在我看來是漂亮的鮮紅色啊﹦_﹦)

然後我煮了港式酸辣康寶濃湯,加了干貝和玉米

不知道他吃得慣嗎 *_*

問他的感覺,他說It’s fine…隨即改口It’s good. *_*

後來我稱讚他的廚藝真的是很讚的時候,他也稱讚我的湯煮得不錯

我在心裡OS,那為什麼他喝完湯之後碗裡剩了一堆干貝和玉米還說為什麼我都把料撈給他 *_*

哈哈…希望那晚,他不是很艱難的把湯喝完…=_=

.

晚餐前,我們去看了Watchmen!好好看唷!但是有些對話我完全聽不懂!哈哈!

這部片充滿科幻、3D、動作、Gothic的味道!

只是一開始看得時候,我內心充滿了很多問號,為什麼batman也會在這部電影出現啊

他不是應該出現在The Dark Knight嗎?

哈哈哈

.

問Mike比較喜歡Street Fighter還是Watchmen

他說他比較喜歡Street Fighter多一點

我只記得我看Street Fighter的時候,整個人很high很興奮

我很認同Street Fighter裡面的女主角Chun-Li(Kristin Kreuk飾)

她也是演Smallville裡的女主角Lana Lang,超正超美的

Chun-Li在女廁與Cantana(Josie Ho飾)格鬥的畫面,雖然Cantana最後格鬥輸了

觀看格鬥的過程,我視覺上都感到很痛 =_=

我最喜歡電影後面Chun-Li發氣功把壞人Bison(Neal McDonough飾)給擊斃

太讚了!!!^o^

.

我在Watchmen認同的角色就是Dr.Manhattan

他強壯的裸體、強大的超能力、黑眼線(Gothic heavy metal hard rock style)、和沒有黑眼珠的眼睛,真的很迷人*_*

他很聰明可以洞察很多事情,看到很多人所看不到的,但是就是看不進身邊所愛的人

這也算是他情感上的弱點

(OS:為什麼我如此認同他?…..)
