I'm starting to get back into the habit of drawing again!... It's been hard the last couple of weeks what with work and everything, but now that I have my schedule pretty much set, it's all just a matter of actually sitting down and drawing when I get home, hah. The museum job doesn't tire me out either so I have plenty of energy to spend on drawing and movies and etc afterwards too :D I've also met a lot of really interesting people there... at a job where all you do is stand and lock doors sometimes. Pretty surprising. Getting back into work on my portfolio too, which I keep forgetting about and then putting it off and then being really confused about. ._.
anyway... from this week~

and movie reviews!
Society (1989) 4/5
Society is a movie that feels very, very dated. It gets very campy at times and eventually falls on sheer sensationalism to simplify the plot, which could have leaned towards a more subtle and surreal tone. However, I am a fan of the body horror genre, and this movie never left me bored in that department; Society proves to be an enthralling if a bit ridiculous movie perfect for the Halloween season.
Jurassic Park (1993) 4/5
After missing out on this classic movie in my childhood and then going for 18 years not understanding what people were referring to when they mentioned Jurassic Park, I've finally watched this movie, and I was pleasantly surprised. The special effects hold up very well despite the age of the film, and though it is a kid's movie, seems to be aiming for an audience that is more mature than I had expected. However, I have to criticize the obvious plot and the continual "action everywhere! you're going to get eaten! oh no!" tone in this movie; some of it feels artificial and just put in there for kicks, like the scene where the car in the trees falls above two of the moain character's heads. However, Jurassic Park does succeed in keeping momentum up and interest levels high, and I can understand why it is a classic of the time.
The Naked Gun (1988) 3.5/5
I watched The Naked Gun because I am a big fan of Airplane!. My taste in humor leans strongly towards absurdist. Therefore, I was a little disappointed that The Naked Gun had a lot less of this 'absurdist' humor and a lot more slapstick, a lot of which I felt was overdone, contrived, or just something I've seen before in bad comedy movies of my own time. However, Leslie Nielson definitely saves the movie, and the pinches of satirical ingenuity as well as a few truly funny moments make this movie one that I definitely think others would enjoy immensely; it's just not something that personally strong appeals to me.
till next time!
