Movies


One film I definitely must see next year is Alice in Wonderland, directed by Tim Burton. The release date is set to be 12th March 2010.

The actors and actresses involved in this film are outstanding:

Mia Wasikowsa as Alice

Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter

Helena Bonham Carter as The Queen of Hearts

Matt Lucas as Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Anne Hathaway as The White Queen

As well as other actors of which there are no photos:

Alan Rickman as The Caterpillar; Stephen Fry as The Cheshire Cat; Christopher Lee as The Jabberwock; Timothy Spall as The Bloodhound.

Also, here’s an image from the film.

Last night I watched Iron Man, and I have to say I was very impressed. Marvel just keep coming out with huge hits of movies don’t they?

I loved the idea of the advanced technology throughout the film, including his voice-activated system (being interactive, some sort of AI) and touch-sensitive glass to see computer data. I really liked the way Tony Stark made himself a new ‘heart’, too. That was pretty cool.

I’m not usually that enchanted with films about shooting and secret plots against the government and so on, but this was a movie which I found extremely accessible.

I think I’ll investigate the Iron Man game for Xbox 360 when it comes out in February or something.

Oh, and it was nice to see Gywneth Paltrow in a big film!

I saw ‘The Dark Knight’ this evening, and I have to say it was amazing. I love the Batman movies, they’re so full of power and thrall. The late Heath Ledger, bless his beautiful-man soul, was positively spine-tingling as the Joker. He was convincing, dashing and eerie all at once. This’ll be a DVD I buy.

Whilst I was looking for a ‘The Dark Knight’ wallpaper for my desktop on Google, I found this photo.

It made my heart go out to his poor daughter, who will never remember her fantastic father…

Destiny is cruel. It makes me proclaim that life isn’t fair, that those who do so much good and so little wrong in the world are killed off like ants. When we step on ants without even realising they’re there, they do not see a huge foot coming towards them, they see nothing because we are too big for them to even perceive. That’s how I feel that we are – blind to the people-squashing foot of God. Maybe God really is a child with a magnifying glass, as ‘they’ say.

I don’t want to die, and I don’t want to grow old. Humanity is the most cruel form of existence. We are aware of our ultimate demise and can do nothing to prevent it. Let’s all become ignorant, I say. Let’s all have been ignorant from the first moment of time. Let’s hope the history of the world becomes rewritten over our past. We would never know the difference.
