post 407 ~ a big sunday break from anime?.. yup, that’s right folks!… spent a lazy sunday watching FIVE downloaded titles!
 1 – what the [bleep] do we know (2004) ~ following a recommendation from , i decided to check out this partdocumentary partfiction film… so this morning, i watched it (apparently this AVI only contained the first 45 minutes of the fulllength; later i’ll download another but unsplit file)… but after those 45 minutes, while it was entertaining, it still felt like another PBS “nature of the universe” science show, or maybe i saw it already… in any case, there wasn’t anything new about quantum theory… just a bunch of advocates with the same egocentric attitude as ancient scientists who once thought the earth was the center of the universe… so while “nowunraveling” gave it TWO stars, i might give it THREE because i like the actress Marlee Matlin, and of course, Armin “Quark” Shimerman…
 side note 1 ~ i’m now beginning to think that the number of possible parallel realities can NEVER be completely infinite or completely dependent upon human observation, just as the space and time in the universe aren’t infinite… that is, mathematical probabilities are only a guide, not the reality… and just as subatomic particles can pop into and fade away like bubbles from this reality (as hawking wrote), so should the highlyimprobable parallel universes fade away, and new ones pop into existence in their place…
 side note 2 ~ just a note on “infinities”… since my “math fair” project in elementary school, i’ve known that there are multiple orders of infinity, not just one kind… for example, the infinity of possible points on a line segment is “lesser” than the infinity of possible line segments/paths within a 2D area… which in turn, is “lesser” than the infinity of line segments/paths within a 3D volume… this is due to the lack of “onetoone correspondence” among these orders of infinity… so in terms of parallel realities, i perceive the possibilites NOT as the infinite number of points on a line that stretches infinitely long in both directions, BUT on the “lesser order” of infinite number of points within a defined line of limited length AtoB… and even then, not an infinite number of points…
 2 – [sympathy for] lady vengeance (2005) ~ finally found time to watch this korean film!… with a pretty leading lady, and the evertortured Choi Minsik to play the primary antagonist… beautiful cinematography and some shocking moments, but afterwards, the film left me unsatisfied… if anything, the sublime vivaldilike soundtrack was the best element of the film… just as beautiful as the MP3s i acquired more than 12 months ago!… THREE stars…
 3 – ultraviolet (2006) ~ again, finally found time to watch the rest of this scifi flick… hmmm, while the gravitydefying matrixstyle martial arts and slick “sky captain”like comicbook look were definitely eyecatching, the story was pretty flimsy… it’s one of those movies that makes me think that, as tantalizingly supersexy as she can be, Milla Jovovich should’ve stuck with singing… fortunately, “the fifth element” saves her… again… THREE stars…
 4 – my sassy girl (2001) ~ yet again, finally watched this korean romanticcomedy!… a cute leading lady, and awkward leading guy… with some funny moments, some fictionwithinafiction action moments, some tender moments, and a warmandfuzzy goosebumps conclusion… between THREE and FOUR stars, haven’t decided yet ;)
 5 – you’re under arrest (2002) ~ based on the popular actioncomedy anime series, finally watched episode 1 of 10 japanese liveaction parts… with the stunningly beautiful Misaki Ito as “natsumi”… hmmm, but unlike the anime, “miyuki” seems more forceful and impulsive than “natsumi”, who didn’t seem to get her fair share of important dialogue… nonetheless, THREE stars so far…
