I just saw Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, which was a surprising and unexpected delight! Go see it. Go, go, gooooooo!



In less happy-hearts news, I have been kind of...idk!emo lately? I suppose it's related to going back to school in a week (I am ecstatic but also upset because I feel like I barely got a summer and now it's being taken away, I guess), but I just have no motivation to do much of anything besides sit around making emo faces. I had to stand up and make myself call a friend to go see the movie (and I was very glad I did). RL friends have been very busy, and I have been trying for two weeks to make plans with one friend who keeps being forced by her dickweed parents to bail on me the day of said plans. We are trying again for Monday, but if that doesn't work, I'm not getting my DVDs back until Christmas, and that will make me unhappy - but less about the DVDs and more about me not getting to see her.

This huge flux of me wanting to see various RL friends and getting cockblocked by their schedules, combined with me running around doing as many outside summer things as possible before summer ends for good, has sapped me of the desire to do much on the internet. I purposely ignored tags last night, and I only had like two. It was a dick maneuver I usually only pull when really tired or really busy. I felt bad, but I was just tired and IRL!lonely and generally in a mood.

I'm off to fix my tags now, but still. If I haven't replied to a comment you left me, or to an entry you though I'd reply to, this is probably why.

I saw Inception for the third time yesterday. |D

I also just watched Repo! The Genetic Opera. It was....weird. And pretty bad. But amusingly bad. I can see why it's a cult classic.

Oh, such a great weekend. I took Friday off to practice for the wedding rehearsal of my high school chorus teacher with students and alums of our choir. Then we went to one of us's family's lake house to go tubing and swimming in the lake. It was raining when we got there, so we watched The Lost Boys which is now officially one of my favorite 80s movies on account of how eighties it was. Also the vampires. Then the weather broke and it was gorgeous in the afternoon so we went out on the lake and the water was warm and I was there with all my friends... ;~~~; so wondrous.

Saturday, the wedding was fantastic and we danced all night at the reception. I got home around 11 pm and I didn't want to go to bed right away, and I was alone in the house, so I popped in a Code Geass DVD, curled up on the couch, and watched the English dub of a few episodes with a glass of Chardonnay (don't tell :3).

Today, I finished the sixth Hitchiker's Guide book that was written by Eoin Colfer (verdict: very good), bummed around, played some Pokemon, and went to see Inception with a friend, which was marvelous and fantastic and gorgeous and basically incredimazing.

I am also consiiidering getting a Plurk account. I want some serious positive/negatives from you guys. Worth my time? Is the layout user-friendly? etc....

First it was a parody.

Then it was a deconstruction.

Then it was a subversion of a parody.

Then it was a parody of a deconstruction.

Then it was a deconstruction of a parody of a subversion of a deconstruction.



In short, it was a mindfuck.




Though I usually dislike R-rated comedies, because they tend to pander to a certain set of people's expectations, this defied everything I had expected to see. I recommend it, though be prepared to feel awkward at least once.

EDIT: I realized the way I worded everything was really vague, so to clarify: I really liked this movie. C:

You know, I really like being single. So I really have no vicious, bitter, angry grudge to hold against Valentine's Day. For me, it just feels like another day. idk, I feel like I'm supposed to either love it or hate it, but I just have a kind of affable apathy towards it.

In other news, I saw Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind the other day, and cried.

Good idea: hanging out with friends on a Saturday night, eating sushi and generally derping around.

Bad idea: watching The Ring on a night when sleep is important to look one's best for a performance the next day.





duuuuuuuuuumb.

WE--WE HAVE A TV AT THE FOOT OF MY BED IN THE DORM TT______TT

My buddies and I celebrated Guy Fawkes Day by watching V for Vendetta. :D Great movie. I enjoyed it. I caught a lot of things that reminded me of Code Geass, too, which reminded me I have to get over my mourning for Shirley and goddamn finish watching R2 made me wonder if that was intentional on the makers of CG's part. Curiosity!

Also, I'm tired and I have nothing else to say.

Umm...

I just saw the movie 300 for the first time in my life.

I laughed the whole way through it.

~Just saw Public Enemies.  I didn't really like it--the cinematography was weird, the plot was nebulous, and the lighting was awkward.  I just don't think it was my kind of movie, is all--I know a few people who said they loved it.

~Saw Harry Potter 6 again last night.  THE FORESHADOWING AND SYMBOLISM IS SOOO EPIC, EVEN MORE SO THE SECOND TIME AROUND, EEEE~  Like the seven rocks lined up on Tom Riddle's window in the orphanage and the random items like photographs they focus on for a couple of seconds that hint at the Horcruxes to come, eeeeeee~  Also: in the scene where Harry touches the ring?  And it spins around and he gets all those crazy flashes of Voldemort?  AND THEN THERE'S A PAUSE AND HE QUIETLY, SUBTLY, DOES THAT NECK-CRACK THING HE DOES IN MOVIE 5???  AUUUUUUUGH BEAUTIFUL FORESHADOWING, DAN HOW DO YOU MAKE A NERVOUS TWITCH SO SEXY~

~I am so addicted to Code Geass, it isn't even funny.  SUZAKUUUUU DDD: WHY SUCH A WOOBIEFACE, SUZAKU, YOU ARE BREAKING MY HEART~  Also, Lelouch is a total dramahor and I love it.

~I bought some music from iTunes yesterday.  I got the Watchmen soundtrack (want the movie sooooo baaaaaad), which is lovely, and I...also bought...the song "Mmmbop," by Hanson.  SHUT UP STOP JUDGING ME IT IS MY CHILDHOOD WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HERE.

~Have discovered the lunacy of Olde English Comedy.  Seriously, check out these guys' sketches--totally hilarious.  My favorite, though long, is "Cave Miners."

~Tomorrow is Sasuke's birthday.  I ought to celebrate by taking care of his tags.  >.>

Things that tick me off:

People who think that a movie is shit if it isn't word-for-word like the book.

People who can't recognize a glorious work of art when they are privileged to view it.

People who are buzzkills.



A more positive review comes tomorrow.
elementalhero: NO PANTS (Sasuke & co. [high five!])

I just bought Okami and I spent three hours playing it.  What an amazing game.  Yes, I am super old-school behind-the-times, but whatever.  Okami's awesome.

Also, went and saw Star Trek.  Speaking as a person who has never ever seen anything Star Trek or even Star Trek-related in her life, I thought it was the best movie I've seen all year.  I also saw Up two days ago, and cried like a little girl.  Great movies, the both of them.  Up is so cute, I think it could cure cancer.

EDIT: Dear President Barack Obama, you are awesome, the end.
elementalhero: NO PANTS (Sasuke [OMG])
I just went and saw Monsters vs. Aliens, expecting a fun and funny movie with monsters battling aliens and I wouldn't have to think. BUT I WAS WONDERFULLY WRONG! Why?

THE ENTIRE MOVIE WAS A METAPHOR FOR FEMINISM! (WITH POCAHONTAS SPARKLE TEXT!)


I will be spoiling the entire movie here, so please be careful.

FEMINISM! )

And there was more! There was an undercurrent of a theme about respecting soldiers, which I could go into but I'm really tired of writing, and all this spoofing of alien movies and THE PRESIDENT WAS STEVEN COLBERT and just ajkasldjskaldjsal GO SEE THIS MOVIE.
elementalhero: NO PANTS (Default)

The Watchmen movie.

Does not deserve an Oscar.

It deserves an entire wing of the Louvre roped off and dedicated to mounting and displaying EVERY SINGLE FRAME OF FILM.
