Awakening The Legend- a review on the new Star Wars trailer

No, I have not forgotten readers. You might be a bit upset with me because my last post said that my next post will be today, and well, it's 11:34 pm, but hey, it's Friday. That makes me either really crazy or really devoted. Let's say a little bit of both for now. Anyway- Awakening the Legend. The legend of the force. (Pause for suspenseful effect while I sniffle from so many good feels on this so very epic movie)

Ideas that Travel Dimensions- a film review on Interstellar

"We all have our time machines, don't we. Those that take us back are memories... And those that carry us forward, are dreams."   - H.G. Wells, The Time Machine

There are a shortage of movies in the world that make people think. I saw Interstellar with my Dad over the weekend and I was expecting a wannabe-Oscar-nominee kind of movie. That guy in the corny car commercial was in it (Matthew Mcconaughey) and his country accent was a tad overdone in the beginning, but other than that, I liked it. A lot. It made me feel a little guilty for hating math, and it changed my perspective.

The Image. Photoshop and the Power of a Painted Face.

I read a lot. Sometimes this reading includes magazines. I read a lot of Vogue and high fashion magazines when i'm in supermarkets or have appointments, but who buys those huge things anyways? More than half are advertisements! It's a rip off! Anyway, I have noticed, as a teenage girl, that these advertisements are very specific, almost engineered in a way where the positioning of someone's chin and the alignment of a shoulder makes the picture. Sometimes it's disturbing. The most disturbing part? The fact that other people breeze through these images thinking they are perfectly normal.
