Movie Review: Centurion (2010)

hahaha Centurion! can you guess who's in it?? yeah that's right. Michael Fassbender! Again. LOL. Yesterday I felt the urge to watch one of his movies, and I thought of Centurion. Since I got the dvd and I haven't watched it yet, so... I watched it!!!

I think I don't have to brag about how good he is in the movie. I mean he's Michael Fassbender, need I say more? there's this thing about him that makes the character seemed to be very charismatic and charming. I don't know, is it just me? or.. haha the thing is, when he played a role, he really sank into the depth of his character. I just thought that that's the most important thing an actor should do in a movie.

As for the movies. well, the story itself is a bit flat I think.. they're just a bunch of soldiers and survivors from an ambush, running for their lives and hunted by their enemy. they just wanted to go home, but they can't do that because their enemy is hunting them like predators hunt their preys. their enemy is a ruthless tribe, a really sadistic one. they gave no mercy for the Romans. it's some kind of something The Romans did in the past that makes them hate the Romans so much.

I can't stand the bloody violence that filled the entire movie. haha. really. it's like the blood comes splattered from the screen and I can taste the blood myself. Well, for me personally, I don't like barbaric action movies as such, so... this movie isn't one of my favorite movie. and as I've mentioned earlier, the story isn't so good as well.

 "In the chaos of battle, when the ground beneath your feet is a slurry of blood, puke, piss and the entrails of friends and enemies alike, it's easy to turn to the gods for salvation. But it's soldiers who do the fighting, and soldiers who do the dying, and the gods never get their feet wet" -Centurion-

Sleepy, but I have class in an hour

okay I'm sooooo sleepy. I'm on campus now and I got nothing to do! omg is this real? mid test is going on and here I am, sitting in front of my laptop, blogging? HAHA tell you this, this is one of the advantage if you took art major on univ. in mid test like this I usually just make my assignments at home and then I just come to campus and submit it. done. you don't have to study any theories or memorizing all those shits about design as well. well, actually it depends on the lecturer, but mostly they just gave us some work to do and we did it as homework. but still. that doesn't change the fact that sometimes, being in an art major is a bit frustrating. you have to open your mind all the time, looking for ideas, fresh ones, etc etc. and sometimes you even need to stay up late to work on those works so that you can get it done on time. well I enjoyed most of the time i'm doing my assignments so, usually I just cope with it...
okay anyways, since I got nothing to do, I think I'll write a review about a movie I watched yesterday ;)
