My Favorite “Sunshine” Review

Their future's so bleak... I've gotta wear shades!

Relevance be damned! I’m posting my favorite “found review” for a movie that was released in 2007, because it’s worth it. A lot of times genius goes overlooked on the internet (case in point; CATROOMMATE.COM), so I felt obligated to give credit where it’s due. The movie itself is a pretty polarizing film. Personally, I think it’s great, but I could see how it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. Regardless, Amazon reviewer, George Hotelling, makes some really tough points to argue in his 2 Star review.

So, (spoiler alert) the sun is going out and the people on the spaceship are going to restart it and save the earth. They have a lot of challenges to overcome like in any movie, and then they overcome them. But here’s the thing about the movie that you won’t believe:

From the Files of Elyse Squad

I decided to sort through and delete old, neglected text documents on my computer. In doing so, I stumble across, nay, fall face first into this gem, entitled “Olden Times”:

Why I would not go back and live in olden times, even if the getting’ was good (though it probably wouldn’t be):

I myself am not old. In OLDEN TIMES, the average life expectancy was somewhere between 30 to 40 years. Given that I myself am not old, unlike the TIMES, this leaves me with a wishful ten to fifteen years, granted I don’t LEAVE OLDEN TIMES before I die, and become CONTEMPORARY once more.

If I went, I would want Benecio Del Toro to come with me, and I don’t think he would. He’s got too much going for him in MODERN TIMES.

*Stares*

I have no idea where this came from or who wrote it. I copied and pasted it and sections of it into Google, but no matching results came up. Did I write this? Did I dream it? I feel like there’s no way I would have misspelled Benicio… ergo, could it even have been me????

Decapitation Capitivation: The Walking Dead

Being a snob, I love to bitch and rant about how terrible the state of network television is and give myself a self-congratulatory pat on the back for being so above-it-all, a la, “you’re of the mindless masses  and I’m not! *takes bite from crumpet*”. That being said, I don’t watch much TV. In 2009 it was announced that AMC had picked up the rights to the cult zombie serial The Walking Dead and I, quite frankly, was right pumped. Yeah sure I’ll watch a TV show based on a graphic serial about a zombie apocalypse! Right out the gate I was more than willing to allot some “me” time to an hour a week of what I only assumed, given AMC’s track-record and the comics’ rep, would be some quality cable TV. Consequently, this would also mean that my usual Sunday evenings of putting on red lipstick and old records and crying through my false eyelashes would have to be cut short.
