Some quick catching up!

The first thing I did after coming back from Montenegro and after that whole explosive diarrhea phase came to a blissful end was to go see the Fright Night remake. It was pretty entertaining, but not very memorable, despite a hilarious performance by the previous Doctor Who as some sort of goth wizard dude. The only thing that stood out about it was how the 3D in the movie was wholly unimpressive, despite having been shot in 3D. Here's some good advice for you future filmmakers out there: shooting a film in 3D is an art. You can't just point and shoot, and you have to know what you're doing, otherwise it looks pretty much like a stupid 3D conversion, and a flat one at that, minus the awful screw-ups.

The next day I went to see the Conan the Barbarian remake, and even though the movie itself was a fun and gory sleaze fest, the gawd-awful 3D conversion pretty much ruined the whole experience for me. In an endless sea of horrible 3D conversions, the new Conan movie shines as the ugliest piece of conversion trash I have seen so far, which is quite a feat indeed. It did, however, inspire me to construct my very own pair of 2D glasses, so I suppose it wasn't a complete waste of my time.

And last week I went to see Cowboys & Aliens and I've enjoyed it quite a bit, but mostly because I'm such a huge sucker for cool alien-type creatures and not because it was a good movie or anything. I've enjoyed the action sequences and the special effects, but the unfortunately weak script was a complete waste of Jon Favreau's talent. Also, the movie had that guy from Dexter! And those two guys from Carnivàle! And that guy from The Shield! And that one really old guy from that old movie with all the dorky lightsabers! And even that oddly hot chick from Tron Legacy! So yeah, I had a moderate amount of fun, but I don't think I'll ever want to watch it again, ever.

And then I went to see Blonde Redhead and Jane's Addiction perform live in Tel-Aviv, and that was pretty fun, even though the hardcore Jane's fans acted like FUCKING ANIMALS and one of them jumped on my big toe and it really hurt. Blonde Redhead were really great, and their opening performance lasted over an hour, which was nice. The thing is, while Perry Farrell is still totally cool, I thought that Dave Navarro looked like a flaming queen, and the fact that every single woman on the planet wants to get into his pants is a testament to what a profoundly screwed up gender they belong to.

Finally, last night I went to take part in the largest political rally in the history of Israel (around 300,000 protesters in Tel-Aviv alone, plus about 150,000 more nation wide), and it was pretty damn cool. And yeah, despite what a lot of people here claim, it was definitely political, and no, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I would definitely like to have sexual intercourse with Daphni Leef. In the vagina. Oh yeah. Vagina-sex with the so-called leader of the protest. Right in the vagina.

Rose McGowan, Y U no be in better movies???

Bonus haiku:
Teen girl on the bus
When you scratch between your boobs
It brings me great joy.
