Movies Mistake

Here are some mistakes made in the top movies of 2007 list but isn’t on the youtube clips(those featured other movies).

10. Bridge to terabithia:- First day in class, when Hoager “beeps” at Jesse, Mrs. Myers writes two words. The word “verb” is over the word “subject” on the board, in the close-up. After she turns around, in the following shots, the word “predicate” appears, disappears, then reappears and “subject” is written over “verb” now. Additionally, during this scene, all the other writing on the blackboard changes between shots as well.

9. Stardust:-When Septimus attacks the redheaded farm boy, the position of his knife changes between shots, from the farm boy’s throat to behind his ear, several times.

8. 1408:-Mike fixes the boat painting, his hair and face are dry. He turns around and sits down and now he is all sweaty and with messy hair.

7. Meet the Robinsons:-In the scene where Lewis is tearing out the pages of his notebook, you can see that his bag is open. When he discovers that Wilbur is not a cop from the future -from the tanning salon coupon- he goes to grab his bag. This time his bag is closed and in the opposite position.

6. Why did i get married?- None was posted

5. Transformers:- At the very start of the movie, when the robots see Unicron coming towards them out of the window, if you look at the bottom of Unicron, his ring is shown in front of a building, instead of behind it.

4. Freedom writer:When Miss Gruwell and the students are discussing Junior year for the first time, she has her back turned and she is writing on the board. She writes, “First Person Nar”. Then she turns around. When the camera shows the board again, the board says, “First Person Narrative”

3. Harry potter and the order of the phoenix:- When Harry wakes up after dreaming about Mr. Weasley’s attack, you can see stubble on his neck. However, when he is in Dumbledore’s office and later in Snape’s, his face is clean shaven.

2. Grindhouse: Death Proof-We can see that Kim shot Mike to the forearm, just below the elbow. But when Mike later looks at his wounded arm, the blood spot and the wound is higher, much more above his elbow. And even before, when he is pouring alcohol on the wound, he pours it on the sleeve. As he is wearing a short-sleeve T-shirt, there’s no way that the sleeve would cover the wound below the elbow.

1. Ratatouille:-In the beginning when the crazy shotgun lady is after Remy and Emile, she knocks over the umbrella canister when she pulls out her shotgun. Watch for that canister as the scene progresses. It goes from being knocked over to being upright and back to knocked over during the scene.

David Yates to Direct HP and the Deathly Hallows

you probably know David Yate directed the fifth potter movie which i chose as my third spot for movie of 2007, and he’s also directing the sixth one. Now, there’s news that he will be doing the last potter movie. Although i thought he did a great job on the fifth potter film, Another director would bring something new. He’s already done Hp and the half-blood prince so i thought that would be enough from him. If i was to choose a director to do the last film, it would be cuaron( director of Hp and the prisoner of azkaban), i think he’s the only director to made the harry potter series really interesting. Or, they should choose a new director because a new director would bring something fresh to the series.

Update:- Looking at the latest trailer, the film looks promising. Hopefully it will be a great movie, not just a great trailer yet not so great movie(like HBP). Time will tell.

Spill.com on Spiderwick Chronicles

After seeing this review, i might just go out to see this movie in the theatre. At first i wanted to wait for it to come out on DVD. The movie looks like it was made for little kids but some scenes that they showed in the review looked quite scary. Based on a bestselling children’s book series by holly black and Tony Diterlizzi, the story is about three kids who battle magical creatures who are after a book(Arthur Spiderwick’s Field Guide.)

Millionaire at the age of 14!

This is a true story, by the age of 14, Dr. Farrah Gray became a millionaire. He started by selling body lotion from door to door at six years old. He founded Farr-Out foods(specialty foods company) at age 14. Two years later, he sold the company for $1.5 million. This made him the youngest African-American to earn one million dollars. If you want to learn more about him, go to wikipedia and type his name in the search engine. It’s truly an interesting story. Hollywood should make a movie on his life.

Fooled by Fool’s Gold?

I personally haven’t watched it and wasn’t planning on watching it but seeing this review was very funny. Watch( Warning: somethings they say might be a bit inappropriate and they bleeped their curse words so don’t worry about that). If anyone has seen it, could you comment on whether the reviewers were right or not.

Top 10 movies of 2007

10. Bridge to terabithia:- I read the book years ago and still remember how the ending shocked me, and the movie did the same to non-reader(a relative of mine) as well. 

9. Stardust: i wasn’t expecting much when i saw this on DVD, but i was surprised by how interesting it was. It wasn’t a sappy love fantasy story, but a different kind of fantasy adventure movie. I loved how every character wanted the star for their own benefit.

8. 1408: A “stephen king’s book turned into a movie” that i could watch twice. it was very suspenseful and haunting.

7. Meet the robinsons:  Kids and parents should watch this movie. it has a very special message that everyone should apply in life( this is also true for my number 1 picked movie).

6. Why did i get married?- Funny, very funny movie by Tyler perry. This movie isn’t just for couples but everyone who wants a good laugh and Janet Jackson is in too, you can’t beat that.(this isn’t a 2007 movie but also go check out tyler perry’s daddy little girl. )

5. Transformers: i don’t need to explain why this movie rocks, you probably have seen it or a friend had told you to check it out. i heard they are writing a sequel to it.

4. Freedom writer: Based on a true story. Another movie that has a message and isn’t boring at all. Hilary swank did an excellent job and the cast were perfect in their role. some scenes were also funny too.

3. Harry potter and the order of the phoenix:- this HP movie gets better and better. Although i wouldn’t say this one was the best( that title still goes to Harry potter and the prisoner of azkaban). my favorite scene was when harry, hermonie, ron, luna, ginny, and neville ran as shelves of crystal ball plummeted rapidly in the department of mystery. And another scene was when Hermonie misled umbridge into the forbidden forest and they met the centaurs.

2. Grindhouse: Death Proof– I chose this one because of how it ended. It’s one of the best ending in a movie ever. Watching the movie from the beginning, there’s alot of dialogue, but keep hanging on, try and finish the entire movie and you’ll see why i chose this as my #2 movie of 2007.

1. Ratatouille: Ah!, pixar has a winner. i personally  wasn’t a big fan of the incredibles and cars. finding nemo was alright, but the other pixar movie were great. Ratatouille is one that stand with the like of monster, inc. and toy story. the movie had a heart and it told the story in such a way that you feel like you’ve just experience something special.

I know there are other movies that are good that i didn’t mention but i think the one that i’ve listed should be view by everyone that love to watch a good movie. If you disagree with my pick, please comment so and why. you could also suggest a movie for me to see too.

Pet Butler

This is a great idea. I never thought that picking up pet’s poo could make someone rich. Alot of people would think that is degrading to do such a service(i’m not going to lie, i would be one of them). But when we  get over our pride then we can do anything and see the result of our work. Question for anyone reading this: would you have done this if you first thought of the idea?(be honest)

Clocky: an invention

I saw this invention and thought it was cool. I went to the website(http://www.nandahome.com/) and saw that it cost almost $50.00. I mean i like her invention and i really think it will help people get off their bed but for that price i think i’ll just stick to a regular alarm clock.  She has to find a way to reduce the price before i consider buying it. I think college students would really love this invention but due to money issues they wouldn’t even think to buy it. Overall, Great idea, Good product, Pricing need to get down.

Question: Is the world flat? Answer: I don’t know

I first saw”The View” incident  on Best Week Ever on VH1. It was very funny, extremely funny. I thought the Miss south carolina’s speech was funny but this blew it out the water. She obviously must be embrassed by this and now it’s on Youtube for everyone to see again and again. I heard that the next day on the show her explaination was that she wasn’t truly paying attention to their discussion. She zoomed out of the topic and thought of something else. She said that she’s a newbie and that she do know that the world is round.  I will accept that as a reasonable answer. We as human beings have all had a moment that we said something totally dumb that we either laugh at ourselves for it or curb into a ball and feel so embrassed or shameful about it. We should all be lucky that it wasn’t posted on Youtube for the world to see, so in that case I feel sorry for her. she probably would be reminded of this but she’ll get over it. I have to admit, everytime i watch it on youtube, i can’t help but to laugh. Someone, in this day of age, to think that she doesn’t know if the world is flat is like saying you don’t know if the sky is up or not. I guess this takes the cake till someone else says another dumb thing but i don’t think that anyone could beat this.

The teenager that made MILLIONS!

Been a long time but i’m back and my latest entry is about a teenage girl who made a lot of money just by using the computer. I first heard this story on CNN and i was amazed by it. it shows that age doesn’t hinder you if you focus on success.  Her name is Ashley Qualls, the founder of whateverlife. When the website took off, she dropped out of high school. She was offered $1.5 million and a car(yet she doesn’t have a license), but turned it down. She has taken in more than $1 million and her only source of income so far is advertising.  Google Anlytics has stated that her Myspace page layouts has glued in more than 7 million individuals and 60 millions page views a month.  Her page number  is 349 ; ahead of 20 million sites. She’s  ahead of Americanidol.com, CBS.com, and even Oprah.com. So, how did she start her business? Well, at first it started as a hobby at first. she  did web-site design 8 years ago when she was 9. Then when she was 14 years old, she created a site to show off her design work. Afterward, she discovered how to customize Myspace pages. So many classmates asked her to design theirs that she began posting layouts on her site daily. In 2005, she got alot of traffic so she brought her own server with the money she made with Adsense.   Now, she’s self-employed and now  created an online magazine, and a cellphone wallpaper. This entrepreneur prove the fact that you can do anything if you  put your mind to it. It doesn’t matter what age you are, or where you come from or whether you have connection or not( she started her businesss on her own), you can make your million!

UPDATE: the youtube clip could be viewed at youtube.com, keyword: Ashley Qualls
