What I've Watched #5

Here are some of the movies I've been watching lately. I must say, all three were really good! Have you seen them yet?


Abduction 

Abduction was really good. Great storyline, lots of big-name actors, really keeps you guessing right to the end about who is a "good guy" and who is a "bad guy". It starts out as the whole "what would you do if you found your own face on a milk carton?" plot, but really pushed it to a thrilling, action plot-line!

I give it 4 out of 5 stars.


Hanna

Hanna was a fascinating movie. It was half a coming-of-age story, and half an assassin-spy movie. Overall, it kept me interested and anxious to find out what would happen next!

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.


Monsters 

I stumbled across Monsters on Netflix the other night and thought, "Why not?" It wasn't anything like what I was expecting, but it was pretty good nonetheless. It's set in a future society where aliens have spawned on Earth and started growing and living there (they're portrayed as sort of flying whale-like lizard-squids). The movie follows two Americans who are trying to walk from Mexico, back to America, right through the middle of the "alien-infected" area.

I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

INFJ vs INFP

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?





80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.



My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
