Movies and TV shows / Re: The last movie you have watched

Finally watched The Godfather I & II

Took me long enough, my Mom has been trying to get me to watch these movies for a very long time. I can say it simply, the first movie is amazing, wow. It really did blow me away. I love in movies of old when there is not a lot of flash and the pace is slower, allowing the characters and scenes to breath. The dialogue is top notch here and the acting is in a tier of it's own. These are not actors, they are simply the characters in the movie. Al Pacino is insane in both of these movies. Micahel's character arc is so strong, watching him transform into the man his father was by the end of Part II. Every scene with Pacino in Part II is amazing, his presence and expressions are killer. and Marlon Brando in the first, what needs to be said. It's all so natural and the movie with it's slow pace allows us to get to know these characters. The scene in the garden stood out, since Brando doesn't even seem like he's acting, he simply became the character of Vito.

There is such great tension in the first movie, the horse head scene was the first part where it gets real. and man, the restaurant scene was a masterwork. Maybe one of the best movie scenes I've ever seen! The extreme tension in the interaction and Pacino's face before he makes his first kills, the contemplation with the roaring train in the background, it was such a crazy scene! This movie feels so real. The part in Sicily was a little bit weird compared to the rest though, but by the end I was left with little to say, the movie was simply the masterpiece it was made out to be.

Part II I am more divided on. Both movies I need to rewatch as some of the characters where hard to tell who was who, and it got a bit confusing, especially in #2, and I didn't understand why there where flashbacks but then you realize it's to show how Vito became the Don and how Michael becomes just like him by the end. Wow, Pacino was so good in this movie. The scene where Kay tells him she got an abortion, and the IN MY HOUSE bit, he sold every minute with just the smallest of expressions. and man, he just looked insanely badass. Lee Strasberg was really good as Roth, the scene where he talks to Michael while the games on, and that natural relaxed feeling he brings. I didn't think Part II was as solid as the first, I didn't understand a few things, but by the end I was left feeling both movies where a strong character story on Michael, and it's been a while since I watched a movie and had this feeling.

The first movie is so good it's insane. I love these old 70's movies and the sensibility they where filmed on. A New Hope, Rocky, Superman, it's a different pace and it breathes. I was so engaged in every single scene of the first movie. I loved the tone and the world it built. It turns out The Godfather is as essential a movie as it's been made out to me, especially if you're of Italian ancestry and you feel like you're a super wop after watching it even though you're basically a mangiacake, but in general. Floored by the first movie, still felt the second was good, just a bit harder to follow.

I have listened to Dedicated 3 times now and I have this to say.

It's a good album, but not a great one.
 
I find overall the style of the album to be less interesting, and the elements I dislike become stronger as the album goes on. I think "Feels Right" is a bad song. The chorus and guest feature stink. and "Right Words Wrong Time" is not very good either. Lyrically the album is consistent and keeps a theme throughout that ends well with "Real Love" and "Party For One". Carly Rae's singing is a little off for me in bits, mostly "Want You In My Room" where she sings in a higher voice. That song is kind of odd but I do like it. That said when the album is good it's pretty good. I do really like "Julien", "No Drug Like Me", "Automatically In Love" and man "I'll Be Your Girl" is such a highlight, it's different from the rest of the album in the best way. "Everything He Needs" has a bit off an off chorus but it's not a bad song.

I don't really like the chorus of "The Sound" and "Too Much" has a bit of a...Taylor Swift verse, though the chorus is pretty decent. and yes, I'll say it again that "Party For One" is quite good, especially as the finale. I might be a bit overly critical, certainly I never thought about Emotion this hard, but it's clearly not as good an album, not that it had to be. It's it's own album. Carly Rae still keeps an edge over every other "Pop Star" simply because she's grounded and sings about her emotions, modestly. Dedicated is an enjoyable album, I will listen to it more and more, but I don't think it's going to be my album of the year unless literally nothing else good comes out. There hasn't been another contender yet.

8/100 Resolved sketches. I really need to study folds.



been having a really good couple of weeks energy wise, I'm sort of feeling I might be back to my old self. The last couple of years haven't been good health-wise and it got me down a bit. It's not really helping artwise because I've been doing long term jobs that I've been putting off like sorting stuff out and tidying up, but hopefully once I'm organised there will be a new level of grinding.

also, a bit of experimentation and leaning out of my comfort zone. I had to squint my eyes to draw this otherwise I would get too depressed how messy and random it is. but if it works, it's a good method :P



edit:14/100 cleaned wips. just picked up a better method, wait for it - more sketch iterations!
I was trying to fix the whole original sketch in one go but that's simply not possible, so same as the sketch WIPs, I'm drawing the body first and then the clothes on top, using the previous sketch as a guide. I can draw a lot more accurately since I can use the original sketch as a guide but make corrections as I go. still trying to balance quality with speed, and also I'm realizing as always that I can't draw stuff.

Here are a few panels of this story.  The artist is amazing, taking my horrible rough drafts and bringing it to life.  This is all I will be posting until its completed, which will take a few months.  Once done, I will share the link if you are interested in reading this story.  Thank You :)

(Also, sorry for poor quality, some images are from my phone)
