Evangelion 2.0 You Can (not) Advance (Review in Two Paragraphs)

I had the honor to attend the premiere of Evangelion 2.0 with my friend. Since through a website called the Anime News Network, we had won tickets to attend the screening. Being the typical Si-Fi anime complete with giant robots fighting against evil aliens-We were excitied.
Though I won't lie the movie did have some dissappointments.
Character concepts for Evangelion 2.0

Many questions were left unanswered, and new elements were introduced that were....interesting...and questionable. It leaves room for a sequel. LOTS OF ROOM!
Over all the movie was pretty good, but the ending is what threw me off, it was running smoothly but the ending...Was well, Confusing. This movie is coming from a multi billion dollar franchisee so Its not surprising that the ending would leave room for Evangelion 3.0
The affects are a much improvement from the anime and were pleasing to the eye. Choke full of fan service too and a small "shonen-ali" scene that will keep Those types of Fans happy. I would give this movie 5 beautiful shining stars,but as I said the "Ending" threw me off.
I won't say what it was, because thats no fun now is it?

Turn the Page: The Maze Runner

Thomas wakes up one day, he remembers nothing, nothing but his name. Thomas discovers he is not alone and that he is in something called "The Glade, or The Maze." And hes not the only one, Thomas finally gets settled in, he is getting used to life in the Glade until the "End" is triggered. Now Thomas and his newfound friends and enemies, must solve the puzzle known as the maze in a matter of hours-Now if this was a regular maze it would be fine and dandy, but the problem is that the walls move every day, and not to mention the monsters roaming in it called the Grievers.

This book is literally amazing, there is no other way to describe it, it is NOT predictable, which is a quality I rather like in books, it makes it thrilling and suspenseful-it is written in the format that it doesn't give you all the information at once, Like you only know what Thomas knows at the moment, it makes it more like an adventure!
The characters are real and you can relate to them and they all have unique personality's, which is nice, because reading a book with clones, now thats boring.

This amazing book by James Dashner has made my top 3 list, and that's pretty impressive. This is one of the best books I have ever read and there are rumors floating around that there may possibly be a movie, though I do hope they are able to for-fill and they don't give the book a bad name.

There is a sequel to the book called "The Scorch Trials." Which is equally as thrilling-lets just say not all the mysteries are solved in Book 1. Book One leaves you hanging and wanting more!

I HIGHLY Recommend this book!

If you want a thrill seeking ride that is.....If you hate action, and excitement and good books, than this is NOT for you.

Alas I Have Returned

Prison Break: Wentworth MillerImage by danzden via Flickr
In the wee hours of the morning as my mind is full of many things a sudden idea popped into my mind. I had a sudden need to write, yes write and wear else is there a better place to write than the wonderful website/blog you own where wonderful people will read or more likely read the first sentence and pass over your wonderful insight and ideas.
And therefore a certain person will stop....well actually won't stop asking "Can I have your website?"

Now I hope you had a good holidays-hopefully kicking back with some friends and family and watching Prison Break. What? You didn't spend 12 hours a day watching Prison break your whole vacation?
Well.....I did......Its not my fault, the video store was having a "YA GUYS! GET 7 MOVIES/DISCS OF OLD STUFF NO ONE WATCHES ANYMORE AND ONLY PAY $7!" So I picked the random disc off the shelf which was Prison break and now I am addicited.

Speaking of movies have you heard of the neat little thing called Netflix? Its a program/website that you can run on your computer and even on your Wii, X-box and I-pod Touch. Its only $7.99 a month and you get the first month free. Its neat that you can watch a lot of shows and movies and I found the stash of anime near the back of the site, >Laughs evilly<  Like a handful of sites, the site breaks down your movies into categories, than breaks those categories into more categories so you can find what you want. Heres an example for my wonderful anime section:

*Please forgive me if it is not complete accurate I am only Human....*

 > Action Anime
 > Drama Anime
 > Comedy Anime
 >Si Fi Anime

Another neat thing about the service is that it takes movies and shows you've "liked" and recommends ones of similar genre.

I have also discovered another wonderful website for art fans known as Deviantart, it is a community where artists can share and provide feedback on art work submitted by other users, It welcomes all types of art from abstract , photography and traditional. I enjoy going on there especially for the digital art....I just like it for a reason. 
Heres an example:
Its amazing what can be drawn on a computer. I myself really enjoy deviantart-though I warn you there are tons of haters that will leave mean stuff on your amazing half drawn sonic pictures and you will go to their profile and only find a poorly drawn tree with a stick figure on it.
Alas I had a wonderful christmas and got art suppiles, Since  I love drawing.

Well I hope you all enjoy your lives and watch out for:

Michael Scottfield.
Yes He is from Prison Break.
