I actually liked the FF movie (But was mad 'cause I'm a sucker for happy endings. >_< Btw, anyone see Planet of the Apes? Same deal. Looooobooved the effects and it was a good movie, but I like happy endings dammit! Why can't things end happy!!?!), but I also reeeeally loved the song at the end too. ^_^ I was singing it by the time we left the theater and my friend thought I already knew the song or something. ^_^ I'm really good at picking up tunes like that. I looove to sing. I think that I would spontaneously combust if I had to go a whole day without singing. And no one has the right to say "I can't sing therefore I don't." Hell, half the time I sing bad on purpose just because it's fun and if it's fun it's goooood. ^___^ <P>Speaking of which characters we're most like, on the poll thingy I got Saph, Vaela, and Wil in that order, but I think I'm a perfectly split combination of one third each. Put them in a blender and you have me: the sarcastic, cursing, never wrong, always happy, tough girl who loves to sing and tell stories. ^_^<P>Kudos to Hayabusa on the signature. That's some good stuff there. I always rather liked poetry (unless I was being forced to learn it by an english teacher in which case I rebelled ^_^) Not too good at it myself except for maybe free verse since it doesn't really follow any guide lines. ^_^<P>By the way, love the new swimsuit pictures, of course. Vaela's cute in her suit. ^_^ (and the feet came out really nice, Alice ^_~) Mmmmm... prisma markers and prismacolors..... *drools*

Hehehe, the guitar is definatly NOT the most hardest instrument to play. I can play it, it hurts my fingers way to much - all because I have a horrible habit of biting them. <P>I looooooooovvvveee singing! Singing is my other passion besides anime and drawing! In my old school, I was in choir for seven years, and I always got a solo part hehe ^^ The worst thing about my voice now is that I'm told I can't 'harness' my voice correctly until I'm older <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/tongue.gif"><P>My music teacher handed me a portabe harp - a small one - when I had nothing to do in class one day, because I guess my voice didn't change back then. Then I started playing it, and every single year I got better. Practice makes perfect ^^

Guitar may not be the hardest instrument to play. Actually, that type of difficulty is relative. The learning curve for guitar is very very very high, especially in the beginning. Toward the end it tapers off, and that's when the piano picks up in difficulty.<P>I wouldn't say guitar is not hard to play, that's a gross misstatement. Most of the classical songs I play require me to play in both the treble, and bass ranges, effectively causing me to, basically, play two guitar parts at once. Especially things by Bach. His songs, Jesu, Joy of Mans Desiring, and Bouree, are really tough. Also, for some of the chords I have to play in some songs, I have a six fret spread. You try holding you're fingers apart a good five inches or so, without touching any string you're not supposed to. It's hard and it hurts :P Especially on a classical.<P>That doesn't get into the intracacies of picking, palm muting, harmonics.... Blah, I could go on, but I doubt anyone's interested :P Sorry if I sound defensive, but all those garage band guitarists give the ones who do the difficult stuff a bad name.<P>------------------

I thought the Planet of the Apes was good, it just didn't compare with the original at ALL. The original was SOOO much better. It also flowed more consistently. I haven't seen Moulin Rouge yet, so I don't know if it's any good or not. Now, The Score, that was one awesome movie. Ed Norten was awesome in that.<P>Actually, for all I play guitar, I don't own an acoustic. I have a classical, and an electric, but no acoustic, which bothers me. I'm left-handed, so naturally every guitar costs me $100-200 more. How many people here even know the difference between an acoustic and a classical :P Not many I'm guessing. Also, Alice, they say that guitar is the hardest instrument to learn, at least until the level where you master it. Piano slowly surpasses it at that point. I don't know. I've tried teaching myself to play piano every time I go to my grandparents house, and it's pretty hard....<P>------------------

*Looks hopeful* So I'm forgiven for being pathetically not-funny? Thank you!!! <P>On another totally different note, I LOVE to sing! I guess I'm good at it, more people tell me that than I'm bad.... Which wouldn't say much if my friends were prone to being nice to me. As things are they aren't, so I think it's safe to believe them. *Wonders if that made sense*<P>I can only sing things like Hymns and stuff from the Phantom of the Opera and other such music. Which is weird considering I haven't gotten any lessons or anything, but I figure it's just my screwy voice. :P I can sing high, and I can sing low (For a girl anyway* But I can't for the life of me sing anywhere in between. I don't have any other talent either so I think I got jiped when they were giving those away. *Sighs* <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif">

Two guitars at once?!?! o.O I can't even play one! I do play the flute and I'm good at playing by ear on the piano, most of the time I can figure out how to play any song in under an hour ^_^, but only with one hand so it's not like it's the sheet music I'm composing or anything, just the tune.<P>I sing pretty darned low for a girl too (first alto, thank you very much ^_^) but I can't hit those high notes for my life. I was in the concert choir last quarter and we sang the Chichester Psalms by Bernstein (not that anyone would ever know what that is ^_^, but it's in Hebrew and incredibly freakin' hard!! >_<) and I couldn't even think about dreaming about the idea to fathom how those first sopranos can hit those notes. It's inhuman, I tell you!!<P>I have to agree with Hayabusa on the Planet of the Apes thing. I did love the new one (and the ending did rock and basically surprise me out of my seat, but I still wish it were happy ^_^) but it can't hold a candle to the first one. I'm not really sure why, but it just is. I will say that it blows the other two sequels out of the water, though. ^___^ I never had the chance to see Moulin Rouge (Oh for the love of carrots, I really did want to see it though!) I'm going to camp outside of Blockbuster when it comes to video. ^_~<P>In sleep he sang to me, in dreams he came. That voice which calls to me and speaks my name. And do I dream again for now I find the Phantom of the Opera is here, inside my mind. (Urge to listen to cd now.... song stuck in head... bah! ^_^ Me love Broadway!!!)

sooo... we are talking about music? I have a gift for that... the incredible gift of making _any_ instrument to sound horrible. :P<P>I like singing a lot (music is one of my passions), but I'm afraid I am not talented at all. But I have fun at karaoke just the same, and I have always a song in my mouth.<P>As for the Planet of the Apes... I have to wait a lot to see it in Spain.... sigh... and I want tooooo!!! I've liked all Tim Burtin's films thus far, so... I hope I will like it. The last film I've seen and liked was Shreck, and I recomend it to everybody that hasn't seen it yet. ^_^<P>and... that's all, I think.<P>------------------

yeah I heard shrek is good but I got to wait for it to come out on video cause I missed it in theaters<P>just saw planet of the apes liked the movie well done but don't like the ending. it doesn't make any sense to me but hey this is hollywood so movies makeing sense shouldn't be expected.<P>as for music well I suck. I can't sing and any time I even touch an instrument it sounds like I'm going out of my way to butcher the music (I'm not but that's what it sounds like)

SHREK!! I think Shrek is one of the best movies I've ever seen! It was so hilarious!! I saw it at the theater twice and was rolling in the isles both times. I love movies that mock other movies. Anything Mel Brooks ever created for example. Speaking of which, I bought the Producers soundtrack yesterday (I want to see the play soooo bad and I've yet to see the movie) and was nearly in tears from laughing so hard. ^_^ "Springtime for Hitler and Germany!!!" <p>[This message has been edited by ~* Eclipse the Shadow *~ (edited 08-06-2001).]

Yeah, the ending to the new one was pretty good. Good old Aperham (those of you who saw in know what I'm talking about :P)<P>I think it did blow the sequels to the original planet of the apes out of the water, but then again, Charlton Hesston was only in the end of the second one.... I did like the end of that one too, though. I never saw the last two... I know what they're about though. Dr. Zeera and her husband take Taylors ship and go to earth, have a kid and get killed, and in the last one, their kid leads the ape rebellion...<P>------------------

(Hehehe, I bet this'll turn into a closed thread with all the replies XD)<P>Alice, you LOVE Moulin Rouge? >Oo< I never really saw it, my friends told me it stank really bad. But I like the song - not its slutiness though. Pink is my favorite singer in that video.<P>Heheh, I saw the original POTA when I was in Lebanon. Really good, and I'm sure the ending is different from the movie. But the movie was good anyway, not the best. I love Rush Hour 2 and the Matrix, they are the best ^^;;

Well, Alice, since you liked it, I bought the soundtrack for Final Fantasy also. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> I still haven't listened to it yet though.<P>I didn't like the Final Fantasy movie much. They tout it like you are going to believe it's real. Well, the body movements aren't very convincing even if the graphics are. ILM did a better job in showing emotion and realistic movements in animating Draco in Dragonheart than the Square guys in FF. Also, there were boring parts in the middle. Lastly, I didn't like the ending. The story could have ended without all that death of the lead characters. I thought it was unnecessary. Dr. Sid could have died instead. Then the bird appears.<P>I like Shrek better. Realistic movements, funny, non-boring, and people burst into song. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> Story was better too.<P><P>------------------

Moulan Rouge was the BEST! My good friend Chris went to see it with his wife and he raved about it so much we all went to see it that night.. including Chris and his wife Julie! <P>Lol! I do the same thing Alice! But my walls are so thin that all of my neighbors HAVE to hear me so they all think I'm crazy. My job doesn't help much... who's going to trust someone who works in a windowless room with locks on the doors and padded walls? All I need is a straitjacket! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif"><P>I DID NOT like Planet of the Apes, the dialoge SUCKED, but I DID like FF. I wasn't paying enough attention to the music to say whether I like it or not... but the Moulan Rouge soundtrack ROCKS! I personally didn't like the song everyone else is talking about but the rest of it was great! *Gets don't babbling and scampers off*

maybe marky mark just liked the blond as well as his chimps. I personaly didn't get that at the end either but I didn't like the end anyways so no suprise but the camera work was definatly good so was the makeup and costume/background designs everything was individual and unigue. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif">

I cannot wait to see POTA. It's not yet shown here in Oz. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif"> Some people say the original is better. I've seen the original. I guess I'll just have to judge for myself.<P>As for FF, the ads tout it as the best thing to happen to purely computer generated movies. That I was supposed to believe all this is real. I think the graphics were excellent but the body movements and emotions aren't very realistic. So for me, it was a disappointment. And also, they could have given it a happier ending. The sad ending isn't really necessary in my opinion.<P>As for shrek, well, I can't wait for the sequel too!<P>Right now, my most anticipated movies are: Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man, and SW: Attack of the Clones.<P><P>------------------

GeeJay the fanart you made for Alice is Lovely! I just visited your site and saw it... I know it's mentioned in another post but I'm to lazy to post twice. <__> <P>I agree with you whole-heartedly Alice! The camera angles were amazing! I normally don't notice things like that but I was stunned! Okay okay so FF did leave a little to be desired but at least it was mostly original. PotA's lacked even that! The make-up and ape-like acting was fantastic but the plot stank and as I mentioned before the best part of the dialoge was when we lost sound in the theater.<P>Movies I'm looking forward to seeing: SW: Attack of the Clones (BAD choice of names though... cheesy!) The Lord of the Rings, Rush Hour II and of course HARRY POTTER!!!! *Dances* <P>I don't know if any of you have read the books but they are great! I HATE kids books, even as a kid, but these aren't just for children. The stories are amazing and the chars are wonderfully clique and orignal at the same time. They are worth the funny looks and snickers you might get for reading them in public... I should know. I'm in the Air Force and all of the pilots laughed at me. Lol... Funny thing was at least two of them had read the books as well! Of course they didn't admit it in front of everyone else and they were very careful to make sure they mentioned that their wives made them read the series. Hehehe. Pilots are so funny! :P<P>------------------

Ah Alice, I didn't mean the movie was 'slutty' I meant in the theme song, when they're singing it. I HATE HATE HATE Christina Agulera with great might. SHE is the slut there. She puts a bad reputation on the movie, thats what I mean. <P>Thats what I meant, when FF sucked. Aki didn't even look like she was crying. It sounded like big puffs in a strangeled face XD Thats why I hate 3D animation, it seems like your watching a dubbed movie that's been done really bad. Plus their mouths remind me of a giraffe chewing on some grass ^^<P>Watch Rush Hour 2 - its HILARIOUS!! There's loads of kung fu fighting ^_~ ( less that Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon though... ) And I love the chinese simbols everywhere X_X Rush Hour 3 is supposed to be filmed over here in NY, and I'm gonna drag my father everyday to Madison Square Garden when they come over here .. hehehe ^_^

Hey, Crown Woods! Thanks! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P><B>Re: Attack of the Clones title</B>
I like the name. Hahaha. People did say that it's either you like it or you don't. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"><P><B>Re: Harry Potter</B>
Can't wait to watch it too! I don't think the trailer is very nice though. Not exciting enough. I mean, it's okay for us who have read it already. But for those who don't know what it is about, the trailer doesn't exactly make you feel like you must watch it. It could have been better, in my opinion.<P><B>Re: Fanatical Leader of the 'Drop Vaela and Replace Her with Crown Woods' faction.</B>
NooooO! I like Vaela! I won't allow this. Hehehehe.<P>
