movies

I am in a very good mood, right now. I had a good time
tonight. I went out for dinner and to the cinema with a Japanese
friend. We had Chinese food and saw Lord of the Rings. That movie is
awesome. I’ve read the books (didn’t quite finish the last one), and
there are quite a few differences, but I really like the movies. Books
can very rarely translate well into movies, but I thought LOTR was done
very well.

In contrast, I saw Battle Royal 2, last night – and that was
pretty bad.

Not only did tonight put me in a good mood, but it made me
want to create. The art in LOTR is awesome. Everything just seemed so
well put together. Battle scenes were so well done. Amazing. Reminded
me of playing Warhammer (tabletop war game played with miniatures) and
it especially made me want to design a Real Time Strategy game.
Watching that, I realized a couple play mechanics that could be added
to the genre. Oh man, I really should try and make a game…

Maybe, instead of writing a couple emails (that I
must eventually write), I’ll try out the wacom on
Gentoo – for the first time…heh.
