I just watched the film Judas Kiss so I decided to tell you all about it!!!

General Plot: (taken from IMDb)

Failed filmmaker Zachary Wells is convinced by his best friend and hotshot director Topher into replacing him as a judge in their film school’s annual festival. Zach’s one-night stand with a student backfires when that student walks into an interview the next morning calling himself Danny Reyes, the name Zach went by when he attended the school. And Danny’s film, “Judas Kiss,” is a finalist in the competition Zach is judging. Zach’s film, also “Judas Kiss,” won the festival years before. As Zach scrambles for answers, a mysterious, chain-smoking campus tour guide, counsels him: “Change the kid’s past, change your future.” But how? Zach comes to believe he can mend his life by disqualifying Danny from competition, putting him on a different path than Zach followed. But will Zach’s plan work?

In case you didn’t notice from the plot, this is a gay film. I happen to have a strange fascination with gay films so I watch a lot of them and this one was definitely one of the best ones I’ve seen!

It’s a very intriguing film for several reasons:

  1. The weird time loop. The college student (Danny) and the filmmaker (Zach) are the same person.
  2. Judas Kiss. Throughout the movie you hear the opinions of everybody about the film but you don’t get to see the film until the very end. Danny keeps saying that the film is fiction but it’s like he’s covering the truth and that the film is autobiographical. You find yourself wanting to see the film a lot!!!
  3. Throughout the film there is an occasional odd kind of glowing light around some of the characters. At first you almost think you are seeing things but it keeps happening.  It is rather surreal!
  4. In general it is a very odd film. It is kind of realistic in its portrayal of the characters despite the fact that several of the characters are, in fact, the same person!

I really liked this film. I definitely recommend that you watch it if it sounds good to you. Also I really liked the soundtrack. I’m thinking of buying it on iTunes!!

 

Out of curiosity, have you watched any good films lately?? Leave a comment!!! 😀


I just read this super cute manga called Cat Street yesterday and today!! Although I felt really foolish, I had a big grin on my face the whole time!!! I looked at the comments and most people seemed surprised that the girl ended up with the computer geek rather than the footballer, but I was really happy about it!!! I liked the computer guy too!!!! I just started watching the drama of it now too!! It’s not as good as the manga but it’s ok!

The name of it really reminded me of my house though. I live in an area with a lot of cats and any time you look out the window you would see a cat (or 3) passing!! I used to call it cat central station!!!

I love this picture!! It’s from “The Cat Returns,” one of my favourite animated movies!!!


Ok so on the recommendation of a work-mate, I just watched Letters to Juliet. (I’ve been on a real movie kick lately!!)

 

Anyway, so I just finished watching it and it put such a big smile on my face. Now you can call me a hopeless romantic but it was an utterly adorable film. It made me laugh and it really made my day feel complete. Now I feel like falling in love would be absolutely wonderful!! Honestly, the movie was seriously cute and I recommend that everyone watch it. I hope it makes you as happy as it made me!

If anyone has any film recommendations for me, I would love to hear about it!!! I’ll watch anything but I’ve really been into chickflicks lately!!


 

Two of my favourite icecream flavours : Pralines and cream, and Strawberries and cream. Both from Haagen Dazs!!!


I just found out that one of my all time favourite books is being made into a movie!!! It’s Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher!

 

I’m so excited to see it!!!!! It is such a great book! I’m a little aprehensive though; Selena Gomez is playing the lead character. I have to admit though, Although I don’t really like her personally, I can’t really find fault in her acting so it will probably be really good!!!

Gah!!!! I can’t wait until it comes out!!!!


Ok so I just started watching Battle Royale (a japanese movie) and I’m 1.5 mins in. It’s already really creepy!! I paused to let it load a bit and decided to update you on what I’m doing since I have nothing else to do!!

My room cleaning project hasn’t really progressed.

But I have been studying a bit more than before! (not that that’s difficult but I’m doing a fair bit now!!)

Currently reading Divergent again. I should do a book review on it soon for my channel! Also I finished Sophie Kinsella’s latest book “I’ve got Your Number”. It was great!!! I had so much fun reading it. Definately a good summer beach read if you’re looking for one!!

That’s pretty much it for now. I must finish watching the movie and drink my peppermint tea!! I’ll probably let you know how the movie went. It looks like it will be really grusome!!
