June: My Movie-holic Month Already

Well, the first day of June was a long and slow one…I didn’t think it was ever going to end. 😛 I spent most of the day watching movies. Let me tell you, I saw a weird movie today, lol.

Two of my Netflix movies came in the mail yesterday so today I got to was Six Days, Seven Nights and Hotel. Both of them ever David Schwimmer films, but if you only read one part of this blog read this:
Do Not Watch Hotel.

Six Days, Seven Nights was actually pretty good. The basic plot from the Netflix envelope is that David Schwimmer and his girlfriend go on vacation together at a romantic beach. The pilot is Harrison Ford. After a crash landing and not getting along, they learn to get along and understand each other.

That was mostly in my words. 😛 It was pretty good though.

Now…Hotel, on the other hand, was a weird film. The film is split into four separate stories that are happening at the same time. At times, the screen is split four ways! The acting was very poor, even though some of the actors were acting like actors in the film (you know how they make it seem like they are trying to act).

The film just doesn’t make much sense for the majority of the duration. Near the end, it all comes together, but I’d only suggest watching it if you’re desperate for a film you’ve never seen.

After watching those, I watched the movie Untraceable. It was pretty good, but most of the scenes were ridiculous. The scenes where they show how easy it is to catch people online, find their home, wireless signals, photo id, very detail about them..blah blah blah. It’s just a little bit ridiculous how easy they make it look.

I mean, the applications that they are using should look like AIM and other applications that under-go user interface development to look sweet and awesome. Most hacker tools that I’ve seen (whether they be white-hat or not) are always dull looking and purely designed to get the job done.

Getting the job done with these tools usually requires a step-by-step process that can take a while depending on what you’re trying to accomplish, but in the movie..they had one click and double click method to do anything and everything.

It would be nice if you could do some much so easily, but imagine how many things you could to on a computer starting with turning it on, while on and trying to turn it off..all while only being about to use something like the enter key or maybe only the shift key.

The film just had a lot of little stretches in it, but I guess most people wouldn’t have caught most of it.

That reminds me, I was watching some movie about a week ago with Sandra Bullock in it called something like..The Net..or something like that. Anyhoo, the got an ip address with one of the sections ~340 or something like that. Now, no one in Hollywood knew that all four parts of the ip address must be between 0 and 255?

The film was based in the 1990’s and AFAIK, IPv4 was the latest ip version around that time which means no higher in any levels than IPv6 is the latest used today, but is supported very little and still hasn’t caught on just yet. Major slip-up if you ask me! 🙂

Anyways, back to watching FRIENDS before I try to pass-out for the night. Who knows, maybe one more movie in a bit. Can’t stay up too much later though. I’ve gotta get up and get those flix back in the mail for the next batch.
