My twenty time project is to watch movies and write reviews on them. If I could change anything about my project it would be the whole thing. I regret the choice I made at the start of the year. I chose something I knew I could accomplish instead of something I wanted to do. That is why I think having the transcendentalism unit before picking your topic would be a good change. This is because the unit changes how you think and could have a great impact on some people, like me. If I could do this over again then I would choose a new idea and explore it until I was satisfied. For example one thing that I was considering at the beginning was writing a book, if I could go back I would choose this instead of the project I am doing now.

This weekend I watched the Boondock Saints, and the TV series Supernatural. The Boondock Saits was awesome, it follows two Irish brothers who are very religious. They receive a message from god and begin to hunt down members of the mob and kill them. This movie was excellent and was comical because they where doing things as they saw it on TV, and it was working for them. They claimed through elevator shafts, and through the ceiling, and kill ten people while hanging upside down. This did not make the movie fake thought it was relalistic. At the end they showed old footage of interviews with real people, that made me think it could be a true story. This movie was excellent if you have not seen it yet, see it now (It's on Netflix),
The series Supernatural is about two brothers who travel around the US killing monsters. They do this because there mother was killed by a Demon when they where young. This is the main story of the series, try to find and kill the spirt who killed their mom. One great thing about the show is they don't use any well know monsters, like werewolves or vampires. Instead they are hunting monsters I have never heard of, this is great because it makes it even more supernatural. I am looking forward to watching the rest of this show.

This weekend I had a WW2 marathon, starting with a band of brothers. This is one of my favorite films, I say film because Band of Brothers is a ten part HBO TV series. It follows E company, or easy, through basic training, D-Day, and their capture of the eagles nest. Throughout the film we witness the bonds of brotherhood formed, and those bonds being destroyed by war. The phrase war is hell comes to mind throughout the ten hours. From the lives lots during D-Day, or the harsh winter during which they did not have winter clothing. We view this war from the the perspective of four different people. This gives us the view from an officer, a soldier, a doctor, and another soldier.
I also watched Jarhead, what a disappointment. This movie was portrayed as a war sniper movie. I spent two hours watching a soldier sit there and contemplate what his girl friend is doing. There was no shots fired throughout the whole movie. Do not watch this if you are looking for a war movie. I was greatly disappointed. This weekend I also started the hurt locker. This movie is about a demolition team in Iran.

Not much done this week due to midterms, I did get to watch a little of the NCIS but nothing worth writing. I was thinking of asking my brothers and friends on their positions for the reviews I write so I can get a more diverse in my opinion. Slow going little progress.
Lots of progress was made over break. I destroyed my old website and used a different website to make another. Not only does this website look better but it offers never ending pages so I will not run out of space. I created a better way of dispalying and linking my review, instead of all the reviews on one page like I was going to do now I list the picture of the movie cover with a link to the review. This looks better then before and is much more efficient.
I saw the new Anchorman over break and wrought a review for it, I also started to watch NCIS and plan it write a review when I am done. Looking back on my goal I am being to dought if I will be able to write that many reviews before the end of the school year.

This week I spent working a bit on the site and thought of a possible problem. I might run out of room when I insert all my reviews onto the website. Another possible problem is that I do not know if I can add onto my site once I publish it. I plan of fixing these problems over break or creating a new site.
On a brighter note I saw the Internship this week and it is sweet. I would recommend this movie to all those mature enough to handle it. The movie is about two oldschool salesmen who's company shuts down. With both their lives taking a turn for the worse they in desperation seek an internship at Google. During this summer expirence that make new friends, find love, and learn new skills. The movie is a must see for its action pact sports, and drunk humor.
Not much done this week saw the new hunger games. In the hunger games trilogy it is my opinion that the first books and movie where amazing. It was all down hill from there. The second book, like the whole Twilight series, is about choosing between two boys. The only reprieve is when they enter the arena again. The third book is the worst. I wish I could get back the week I spent reading it and will not see the movie. Back on topic the new hunger games movie catching fire was very good, in that it followed the book and had great action.
