memo to self: if wearing a bullet-proof vest, do not brag about it

Saw Battle Royale at SMU tonight. It’s a shocking, gory, violent film, but not without heart. I also loved it because of its being a universe unto itself with its own set of rules and lots of characters and numbers to keep track of. I sat next to a guy who had seen it ten times and who was happy to fill in the blanks a bit as we went along (those Japanese teenagers in their school uniforms all look the same to me!).

Just… wow. What a movie. Lots of twists and turns. I would have done a few things differently, but thinking that way actually made it cooler, because it meant I was buying into the movie’s systems and logic.

We also saw a few minutes of this very funny movie where there’s this famous Chinese painter and his brother comes to him asking for money – I wish I could find the title. Perhaps these guys will play it sometime. So yeah, SMU has a film society! Should be on Facebook; I’ll link it when I see it.

It’s been another hectic week. I’m very happy that today’s chemistry assignment was the second-to-last. Time to chill out and play some video games with my cousin Rickard.
