With so many shows like Thrones and others having season finales there just hasnt been alot of good tv lately. I am caught up on netflix series of several shows I follow till the end of the ques. Presumably next season they will add the next season to the que for Greys and Supernatural to name a few. I may get the current season from Amazon instead of waiting on Supernatural’s. I had been stockpiling my dvr but we had a cable box issue and mediacom swapped all the boxes for brand new ones about a month ago taking my recordings with them. 😦
Anyways I wanted something different than serials and scanned my hulu and nexflix libary something different. Usually when I am in this mood I want something really dark themed like The Hurt Locker, Seven or The Lovely Bones. Movies like that are sorta like doing a long line of whiskey shots after the bar has closed and its just you and the bartender left there. Fallen is another movie I like alot in that genre and as a bonus they sing and play the Stones often in it.
As I said I wanted something different I came across an independent movie made in Japan called The Ramen Girl starring Brittany Murphy who’ve I’ve been impressed with since I saw here cut up arms and body hanging from a rope in Girl Interrupted. For a movie with so many amazing performances and actresses Brittany held her own in GI. Netflix listed Ramon Girl as heartfelt comedy, fish out of water, american girl in Tokyo basically all alone after being ditched there. She couldve flown home to the US at any point of course but she seems to sad and broken to think rationally or give up like that. The movie has a mending of the broken feel to it and I very much enjoyed it. She learns to cook in a Japanese diner and later says to a guy please taste my broth. 🙂 I had to smile at that. The sound of her voice and its emotion is a big part of what she was able to do on screen. It came as no surprise that Mrs. Murphy turned out an awesome performance in what was to be one of her last. Sadly one of her last few. May she rest in peace. I hope, no I am sure she’s in a better place now.
I wish House would go streaming on netflix or hulu or amazon. Constantly keeping up with dvds sucks. Speaking of I ordered the directors cut of the original 1979 Alien which has never before seen scenes. Cool. Alien is one of the best sci fi movies of all time. Easily in the top 10.
I have started rewatching the X files but beginning with Season 7 ep1. I’ve seen them years ago but imo season 7 is when it all starting getting darker and stranger and harder to understand all of it. Still I want to believe.
