MovieReview- Avalon High (2010)

Alas, yet another Disney film! And I haven’t even gotten started on Frozen yet…

So, I saw Avalon High just now. Like just JUST now. It took forever to load online. I couldn’t find the dvd anywhere, but now I wanna get a copy of it, since I liked it that much.

I honestly found out about this movie cuz of Castle, the tv show. Since Alexis, or the actress Molly Quin(n?) is in it, and in this one, and I wikipedia-ed her to see what else she was in…I came across this movie.

I’s surprised I hadn’t already come across this movie about a month before it’s release though. It’s got the Arthurian legends mixed up in it, Disney, and high school. How could I NOT have seen this movie?! It’s so something I would watch!

If only there were more cute/cuter guys in it too =/ Then it’d be complete. But still, it’s cute. I like it. I’m not sure if it qualifies for a TimelessMovie, but it’s still something you should watch if you’re into the whole Arthurian legends. And Merlin. If you like and watch Merlin, this might be a kiddie version of that. What did you expect, it’s Disney.

Spoiler time!

I sooo knew it that Ali/apparently spelled “Allie” (it seems SO weird writing that down and actually talking about someone else…) would be King Arthur, I knew it, I knew it! And the second that teacher with the limp asked wistfully to see the real prophecy in the Bear of the Round Table or whatever the real thing was called, it was right there in the open. Hey, plot twist, he’s the bad guy! Only, it’s not so much of a plot twist since it was just so OBVIOUS. Bleh. The only thing about this movie that didn’t make much sense was the evil-but-really-not-so-evil step brother of Will’s. I mean, he was mean, and bullied, and pranked and hated Will. That’s why they thought he was the actual reincarnation of the Royal Evil Step-brother. But in the midst of them battling the reaaaal actual bad guy, he just gets away with his lame assed “Oh, I was trying to protect Will” excuse. Sure, he was in that particular scene, but what about everywhere else? The just transformed him into a sudden impromptu good guy. It would have just made more sense to label him as the cliched misunderstood teenager, but nooo, they just had to make him a good guy who just happened to have a change of heart. And that change of heart too? It just get’s ignored and skipped over with all the other action packed halabaloo so as to make even LESS sense than before! Psshaw, they really had no idea some literature nerd was going to go into the inner being of this movie now did they? If only they had thought that…

Spoilers and rant now over-

It’s pretty evident what this movie is about, and the plot line just so predictable, especially if you really are acquainted with the Arthurian legends even a wee bit, then you will have no trouble figuring it all out. So just watch and see, is Arthur really the one you think he may be?

*ending all recent posts with questions cuz I’m coolio like that. And I’m running out of sign offs.*

A lil’ Story about a Charles and a Miss C

So I finished Paper Towns by John Green yesterday. But thats not what thats about. thats where this BEGAN. So here we go, and only wait to see where we shall end up. Let the way my brain works fascinate and baffle you now.

So Paper Towns. Johh Green. Discussing with Shallot. But then, we start discussing book collaborations, like WIll Grayson, WIll Grayson. Where, according to ayesha, the authos collaborated in a mind-boggingly brilliant way. They both name their characters Will Grayson. Thats all with the collaboration. They then just move on and write their own stories, of two different characters, two different entities, two different minds and bodies. They just share the same name. and then the two meet.

and up til that meeting, they dont show each other their work. Their writing, their stories of their WIll Grayson so far. And so that’s what we are doing. Ayesha and I are writing a small or short story (haha, lets just SEE how short itll be with me writing half of it =P) and were collaborating like that. with just a name to know. but we did collaborate a bit more, so the stories can mesh more, and since we arent proffesional authors like the authors of Will Grayson, Will Grayson, we decided to share some information about the characters to each other. Like how one shall be a girl, the other a dude. Im writing in the point of view of the dude, obviously. and ayeshas doing the chick. and so then we’ve got the shared name, as well as the shared age (17, junior in high school.) Ah, but the name. We decided on Taylor and then i rapidfire last names (DeLucas and Rosenfield were shot down =( ) and i said Sharbatski, like Robin Sharbatski, from How I met Your Mother. Wohoo. so now weve got Taylor Sharbatski. and then i threw in one other common ground…they should have the same letter middle name, but we should give them different middle names. So we decided on the letter C. this will also make it possible for us to distinguish between our two characters. (ahem, besides the fact that they are both of different genders…)

SO my dudes named Taylor Charles Sharbatski. and hes going to be the funny main character with a serious and philosophical best friend. and hes going to have the annoying ability of being that american (gora, HAH.) boy that shall randomly and spontaneously ‘put on airs’ with the assistance of a fake british accent, wohoo!

(shallot was actually worried that i wouldnt be able to find a dude middle name that began with the letter C. I said into the phone, around 3 seconds after she said that ‘Charles’. and that is the end of that.)

So her characters Taylor C. Sharbatski, a little Miss C to me, since i dont yet know her middle name. and thats that.

Our characters will both be in the wonderful continent of the United States of America, and shall both be- i forgot. no, i SERIOUSLY forgot. .____. oh nuo.

oh wait, no i remember. this is the part where i explain how we non-proffesional writers shall be going about this collabortation. were doing a short story, remember, so its going to be 5 chapters each. with no limit as to how long each chapter can be, which works perfectly for the both of us. and then after we make it to the third chapter, we shall read each others works so that we can see the stories and life of the other Taylor C. Sharbatski. Then we shall collaborate and find a way to make the two meet some where in their lives. and then well take the story somewhere from there. yeah, well totally cross that bridge when we get there.

I suggested we have the two meet on a school trip and have them get the wrong keys to the other Taylors room. that could be fun. (haha, i can see Miss C walk in on the serious philosophical friend reading Moby Dick and just be like ‘da hell..?’ and i can TOTALLY see Charles turn around in a swivel chair, close a book he was supposedly reading (upsidedown), and say ‘ive been expecting you…’ only to have Miss C’s roomie walk in, whos a girl, duh. The look on his face when he sees a girl walk in will be hilarious. he could fall out of his chair and be like ‘thank the lord!’ in his head. Oh, if im narrating. and if we do that. la la la~)

So now i have to decide whether i want to type this out HERE or on my laptop, on MS word. thing is, i really hate MS word =/ but ill need a constant internet connection on this thing, so i  might not be able to do it as often, like when the nets down, or at school, or whatever. bleh. so lets just see.

But yeah. Writing a storyyyy, yeah!
