There is new poetry posted in the ever growing new POETRY Section: http://www.rjhunekewrites.com/poetry.html My hand is restless. More will follow.
Well I am back putting up the good word on various forms of entertainment in my IMPULSIVE REVIEWS here on this blog. Today I look to two movies on DVD: Wall-E and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Wall-E was AMAZING! Here is a movie that looks to the not too distant future and depicts mankind very accurately. Once the earth becomes garbage storage for humans they are off to space leaving one last functioning mechanic/trash compactor robot, Wall-E, to continue cleaning the planet and building beautifully visual cities. The look of the film is unprecedented and the story is one for the ages and one that is fun for all ages too. The rough around the edges, creative robot Wall-E is instantly lovable wearing his emotions on his sleeve, (or rather his eye lenses). A huge spaceship blast shakes and dazzles the eye. Earthlings seeking life on their former planet send a shiny beautiful robot of their own, Eva, to investigate the situation. She is sleek and gorgeous on the screen, resembling a cross between an I-pod and an I-Mac computer. The lonely Wall-E instantly falls in love with Eva beginning an awesome adventure through space, the futuristic humans (too fat to walk on their own) and beyond. The DVD will be out November 18, so be sure to pick this one up, because this is an instant favorite. The look, the feel, the slapstick comedy, the exciting story, and Wall-E loves Eva:
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was entertaining with stark highs and lows. The story with the aliens was great, but the writing made some parts unbelievable (even for Indy). Still it is great seeing Harrison Ford kick ass as Indiana Jones again and as the original three are three of my favorite movies, I might add that I am a little bit of a sentimentalist here. I say buy it and enjoy it for what it is, the last Indy adventure (and not the last Indy classic). The DVD is out, but when watching it you might want to skip over a couple of parts here and there:
Best line: "How much of life is lost in waiting?"
VOTE OBAMA: Let's change the United States Energy needs by shifting to prevalent Renewable Energy and lets make it a successful American industry, like the auto industry once was, so that my children will not inherit the fossil fuels addiction that I was born into. Lets bring back the Middle Class and make it America's backbone instead of her indentured servant. There is only one man in this election who will lower the taxes of those making less than 250k/year, the common man/woman, help them with their healthcare (or lack thereof), and sending kids to college.

Well it must have slipped my mind, but I must announce that I received an Honors Scholarship for the remainder of my term at this school, provided I maintain my high G.P.A. (3.8 and climbing) and continue to take Honors Courses - I will now be graduating with an Honors Degree, which is one up on a degree with Honors.
Now to keep up the good fight, this weekend, I will be writing a huge paper on Romantic Period Literature (I think doing it a few weeks early will secure a good near-future weekend in Boston and possibly another one in Manhattan), I will answer a few dozen questions and a few essays for American Cinema, and then lastly I am finishing up my book. A book of agents sits to my left, as I type this, for inspiration.
John Lennon would have turned sixty-nine years old yesterday. The man, the legend, the symbol for peace around the world was gone before I was even born, yet his spirit and life's work continues to thrive: "Livin' for the day...".
Further encouragement for writing my book/works I have just found on Stephen King's website: http://stephenking.com/the_author.html
Here is an extremely brief, but great biography on the amazing American writer (possibly one of the most accomplished of all time), Stephen King, written by his wife. Anyone remotely curious about King's origin should check this out, it is truly inspiring.
It should be a good weather weekend and my mountain bike and the Pines will not be ignored tomorrow before writing dominates this very earth. The wicked Sox, Torre's Dodgers (who better wake up, down 0-2), Rangers, Knicks (yea I said it - I mean hell we could win thirty games this year), Jets and New York Football Giants will all be in my peripheral vision to get me through it. That and coffee... it has been a while, but the 100% Colombian brew was made for school and for autumn.
