Constantine or Almost But Not Quite

Against my better judgement, I went to see Constantine yesterday. Apart from the first Matrix movie, and the Bill & Ted movies, I have never really been a big fan of Keanu. But because Constantine is a movie based on a comic book, I had to go see it, just to see how they did with it.
I was both pleasantly surprised and slightly disappointed. Keanu, in this movie was basically just 'acting' the same as he did in Matrix, which is to say deadpan and with not a real amount of expression or emotion. I kinda liked the movie, though there were parts that were not quite the same as the comic. Where was the blond hair? Where was the long coat that John Constantine wears in the comics? I still don't know why they actually chose Keanu to play the part, considering I read somewhere that the creators of Constantine used Sting as a blueprint for him. But
I did like the guy that played Satan, very nice actor.
I guess, even with the little bits and pieces I didn't like about this movie, overall I liked it more than disliked it.

Rant of the Moment or Die Smokers Die

Cough cough. Hack hack. Choke.
What is that? I hear you ask. It's the sound of me eating my lunch today. I hate it when smokers think nothing of the people around them (and I have to say, from what I have seen, that would have to be pretty much all the time.). For those of you who live in Perth, or have spent a length of time here, you would probably know of the paved area with the dozen or so benches, the area near Cinema City near the big church. Anyway, i decide to sit and have my lunch on one of the benches today and read. Not more than five minutes go by before some thoughtless female comes and sits on the bench to the back of mine and she lights up. Of course the wind is blowing perfectly for the smoke to waft straight over me eating. Next to 4WD drivers, I find smokers to be the most selfish people on the planet. Always, and this is almost without exception, whenever I exit a building, be it an office building or restaurant or shopping centre, there is at least one person standing barely a foot away from the door puffing away, and naturaly the smoke they exhale is carried in on the wind. I am getting sick and tired of having to hold my breath whenever I enter a shopping centre, as there is always staff and customers crowding the entrance, grabbing a quick smoke. I hate smokers. I am of the opinion that there should not be smoking at all allowed in public places, be it inside or outside. I would one day, when walking through the city, like to be able to take in a breath and not have my lungs half filled with cigarette smoke.


God, I must be boring and lacking motivation. Simply because someone at work has started a blog of her thoughts and whatever other scary crap she comes up with, I have decided to start one of my own.
Most of the stuff I will be talking about will be movies and actors, art and comics, television and tv shows I like or hate (hate being the emphasis where 'reality shows are concerned. Can't stand the useless wastes of space within the fabric of the universe.), books and writers. It may be days and weeks in between postings (one reason being, my life is boring as all batshit. Another reason being, I am just plain lazy as all hell and would prefer to watch a movie or read a good Sci-fi or horror novel.).
I may sometimes compliment or whinge and complain about people I know, but in the ineterest of not offending any friends or people i wish to keep as friends, I will never actually mention any names. It will be up to people who read this to figure out who is who.
Another reason I have started this, it is a rather slow day at work today. I am a receptionist two days a week, in the city of Perth Western Australia. 11.15am and only three phone calls so far. Where has everyone gone? Has there been a mass alien abduction and they forgot to take me along? Or, oh no, like that british horror movie from last year, where most of the country had been turned into zombie-like creatures. Aaarrrggghhh noooo.
More later.
