Just like everyone else, I get bored.
So what do I do that kills said boredom?
Digg into some new comics and watch DVDs.
Why these movies?
I guess I was in a mood to watch a bunch of films in which teens are the lead.
A lot of these was me just rewatching them (Nick and Nora, The Wackness, and The Debut) but I haven’t seen American Teen since I saw it this week.
American Teen is a very entertaining documentary that focuses on five teens who live in Warsaw, Indiana. It follows the usual types that we see in teen dramas; the jock, the geek, the popular girl, the heart-throb, and the rebellious art girl.
While I did like it..about midway through I was wondering about its authenticy as a documentary. Some of the events feel planned out, and I sort of felt cheated afterwards. But I decided to, well , let that slide and just go with the film and in the end just enjoy it as a movie.
The only movie that doesn’t count as a teen flick was “The Baxter”. I’ve seen this a few times already and while it was not a perfect movie, it’s got a cute romance that builds between Micheal Showalters character and Michelle Williams that is a lot of fun to watch.
Why these comics?
I like both writers quite a bit(Geoff Johns on Superman Secret Origin, and Robert Kirkman is just one of my favorite comic writers period.)
Invincible is also one of my all time favorite comics right now, and I basically never miss an issue.
My sister’s boyfriend was getting ready throw these out and…well..how could I not pass up a chance to own pair of katanas?
Soo, thats my weekend. I watched, I read, and I owned.
That is it…and hey, maybe with those Katanas, next time I might actually kill boredom…..just boredom, not like a person or an animal or something…..
