It's been a while hasn't it?

I kind of forgot about this blog, so I guess I'll apologize for that.

I haven't seen many movies since my last update. That's kind of sad, huh? I've watched a bit of anime, though.

Let's catch up on the movies I DID watch.

1. Pride and Prejudice

Okay, I only watched about half of this (if I had the choice I would have finished it). A very enjoyable film. :) Keira Knightley's neck is very long, almost distracting because of its length... I hope to finish it someday. Scenery is very beautiful.

2. Puss in Boots

This was a joke gift to my sister, but we decided to watch it anyway. First off, by no means is this movie good at ALL. On the contrary, it's really rather terrible. However, there are quite a few genuinely hilarious parts which makes it worthwhile to rewatch for those alone. That damn terrifying egg!

3. Arietty

I saw this in theatres. This movie was a real improvement from the last Ghibli film I saw, which was Ponyo. I hate Ponyo. Arietty was very excellent though. Really charming!! I don't have much to say past that except the bara dad was uh... very bara ; )

And I think that's all movie-wise.

Now, ANIME WISE..... I have quite a bit to talk about....

Okay, first off let's get the big one off my chest.

I am terribly in love with JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

My TL was ranting and raving about it and I somehow got caught up in it, too...

Currently, I'm reading through part 6, but that hasn't stopped me from already purchasing figures from the series... I've got a very nice Joseph and Caesar SAS duo, and I also got Banpresto's Weather Report struttin his stuff on my shelf.

I don't know what's attracting me to it so much.... I just love everything about it. I'm desperately in love. I just don't want it to ever stop!! I've never felt this way before!! I'M IN LOVE WITH MISTA!!!!!!!!!

Perhaps it's the extreme eyebrows and mullets everywhere! Or perhaps the ceaseless bare midriffs or chest windows!! Or the fact that most everyone is a dumb child sans Giorno!! Who knows!! I'm just in love!!

And my wallet is weeping!!

I'm really looking for the day I can get a Mista SAS for a decent price..... or even the RAH... : ) I really love Mista, I do. He's a dumb lovable baby.

And well, 2, I guess: I caught up with One Piece, manga-wise.

Really good stuff. Oda can really get you attached to the characters.... Marineford arc and directly afterwards had me bawling. It also helped me come to terms with some deaths of my own relations....

3. Fullmetal Alchemist

I'm watching the first season right now, and i'm about at the halfway point. I remember a lot of these episodes from middle school, but it's also a rather new experience for me. I'm really enjoying it (though the insert plot and characters are so painfully obvious).

And even more unrelated from films!!

Last Spring, while I was in North Carolina, I picked up a couple of games for a doon each at a Goodwill.

+Earthworm Jim for SNES
+Megamam 1 for NES
+Megaman 2 for NES
+Megaman X for SNES
+Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time Collector's Edition for N64

All for a dollar each. That's five dollars for all that. And all in near perfect condition.

Now, unfortunately, I never had a NES or SNES, but I do have a N64 (the lovely green skeleton Donkey Kong limited edition)

For some reason, though, I never got around to plugging it in until yesterday? And I've never played Ocarina of Time before, too? Well, I'm having fun and I don't have much to say on the manner.

I named Link "BUTTFART". For kicks.

Well, perhaps I'll type more later.

Since my last post I've seen two movies: Contagion and District 9. And Shrek but everyone has seen Shrek before.

My dad recently figures out a sure way to get free movies from Blockbuster movie boxes (in a legal way, too!) so we've been doing that.


1. Contagion

Contagion was something I really wanted to see. I love apocalyptic kind of settings (due to disasters, disease, etc.) so this seems like it would be right up my alley. I'll give it that it was interesting but.... It was not quite disastrous enough for me!! I liked the beginning where it showed everybody transmitting diseases (very similar to Manhole... Now that I think of it eerily similar!!) It was too long for my liking and was just rather... anti-climactic. Whatever.

2. District 9

My sister suggested this one to me, so we watched it. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I really loved it. Christopher is so damn Moe, and Wikus (when not being an asshole) was pretty moe, too. I liked the documentary-esque feel to the film. The mecha scene was really well-done, too. I really wish this studio would do some mecha-type film. Like, yeesh! Imagine a live-action Break Blade film with that excellent meshing. Anyway I don't have much to say on this movie except I really enjoyed it.

And onto other things (anime! of course)

1. Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

Easily one of the funniest anime I have seen in a while. While some gags can be a bit too long for the humour, some are just outrageously funny. Namely, I love the scenes where Imouto is involved, and Karasawa is my favourite so I can generally find anything hilarious in him. (Also he makes my heart doki it is the most unusual thing ever) But yeah, I'm highly anticipating this Tuesday, since new DanKou Nichijou and a new Chihayafuru!! Double doozie for my favourite currently airing anime!

2. Thermae Romae

If you have not seen this, please get on it. It is also hilarious!! I am chuckling just thinking about it. I have hardly a single valid thought on it.

3. Kaiji

Not that I've been watching Kaiji or anything recently, but I have this strong temptation to own everything Kaiji in the world.

I think it started when I impulse ordered a Kaiji game for the PSX for 20 doons off ebay. I certainly don't regret it, but I think it sparked a strange obsession with buying strange Kaiji things.

I recently got in a guide book that covers all of the manga released which 1. I cannot read it 2. I have not read much of any of the manga

But it is so interesting! I am also eyeing a broken Kaiji slot machine being sold..... It's a tempting thing, aye.

Well, not much else to say. See you.

The reason I made this blog was to log the watchings of movies throughout the year.

I think at this point it was an utter failure. Fun for when it lasted, though!
We'll get to all of those movies someday.

I'm just not a movie person. While I have no problem watching 5-10 episodes of anime in a row, a movie really grates on me at the half hour point. I suppose I need some form of cliffhanger at every half hour point or so. Maybe it's mostly because I'm 2Dsexual. Who knows.

The only movie I've watched since that last post was Redline. Yes, again. My sister and I both love the movie so much, and seeing it on the big screen is really something. We still haven't watched the special features!

Aaaaand on to other things.

1. Kaiba

Last week I watched the entirety of Kaiba. I had gone into it knowing little aside from the simple art style and the plot focus on memories, but I was really drawn in. While I was really confused at first, piecing things together felt really achieving and I was drawn to most of the characters. The singular stories in the beginning I appreciated most, but the finale was also really great. I'd give it a solid 9/10. Something kept it from a 10/10 and I can't really place it.

2. Mawaru Penguindrum

I have yet to finish it at this point. I'm having a bit of trouble continuing it. I'm at the 15/24 episode point. I first watched this when it was airing and was really confused by the episodes when there was a week in between each episode.... So I dropped it. And gg came out with a batch recently so I picked it back up! I like Ringo the most. While the plot is somewhat interesting, there are a lot of grating features to it....

Number 1 pain in the ass: the penguins. I feel they take so much out of the show. I don't know if they actually have anything to do with anything yet, but they piss me off immensely whenever they are on screen and they also get a rise out of my declining bird phobia, which is REALLY strange and irritating.

Number 2 pain in the ass: Himari's VA. Block of wood. Boring as heck. Makes me want to stop watching.

Anyhow... despite these complaints I am really enjoying it. Ringo makes everything better, I swear. She is a perfect princess.

3. C

I'm at Episode 5 of 11. The first episode really made me love it. It was that same exciting feeling the first episode of Eden of the East had given me. That creativity on a rather foreign subject matter or way of presentation. I mean, the economy? Really? Cool! But episode 2 and on was an utter disappointment.... Similar to Eden of the East, except it dropped at like episode 10 and the movies reek, too. Maybe it'll pick up, who knows. There's just too much focus on I Want To Be A Good Person And Be Average when there is just so much potential past that. I like Mushyu. She's a cutis patootis. Main character is awful, though.... Not as a character, but as a main character.

4. Chihayafuru

This has been the most enjoyable anime I have watched.... ever perhaps. This anime has truly touched me in a lot of ways, especially the characters. While a character like Chihaya is rather difficult to relate to (for me, anyway), I find Tsutomu so... personal it kind of hurts.

It's kind of inspiring seeing the characters work forward, especially Tsutomu and Kana, who are the beginners, though devlopment is obvious across all the main characters. I really want to play Karuta, but unfortunately I know nada Japanese!!! The way Kana talks about it, though, it seems so charismatic and charming. The episode where she is introduced... I've watched it too many times. I love Kana. uwu

5. Someone please give me a free PS3 so I can play my video games I got as b-day gifts. I have clocked about 20 minutes one each one the day of and have had 0 opportunity to play them since my brother is a dick.

Y'know what today is? Today is Redline Day.

No, really though. Redline came out in the United States on BluRay and DVD today. I stopped by my local Best Buy and nearly pissed myself when I saw both versions at the front of the store. Bought the BluRay, considering as a stupid silly fan to also buy the DVD. I'm even considering buying the Japanese Limited Edition BluRay. I'm going crazy.

I've been anticipating this for over a year - the day I could finally hold it in my hands and watch it in my home and not by fansubs or rips.

I've seen it quite a few times before. I never really get sick of watching it since I notice a lot of different things. This time around, though, I watched it with my sister. Now, I've been hyping this movie up for her for over a year, and a million times as much after I actually saw it. Finally watching it with her... I was nervous. We both have very similar taste in music, video games, anime... most everything, really! But when you've pushed such high expectations unto someone, you HAVE to be a little nervous, right?

Well, I was sweating buckets. But this experience gave me a new look on Redline. I ended up nitpicking it throughout.

I can name a couple scenes in particular that really bothered me. Intensely so. These two are the worst, though.

1. After the Yellow Line when JP is in the hospital. The entire scene with the reporters. Grating repeated animation.

2. The scene where Volton goes to fight Funky Boy but hasn't been sucked into his techno-leech yet. Too much unnecessary animation.

There are a few other subtle parts that got to me, but all in all.... This still tops out as one of my favourites. I absolutely love this movie. So much.

And at the end, my sister told me she really liked it, and she also wished it was longer. Goddamn.

All in all, Redline is a really good movie and you should go buy it and just celebrate how great Redline is. Also the OST is really good.

I wish they would come out with some not limited and not-so-expensive figures. There are a few out there, but not only are they limited and not assured to production, but they're 1/10 scale and just super expensive. More expensive than those stupid sexy Hakuouki figures from Movic. Sigh.

Have a good night. Also we didn't watch a movie yesterday because I was feeling sick and I was watching KHReborn all day. This thing we're trying to do is going great! Not.
hundy: (Default)
Not quite a week, but almost!

I keep on meaning to update, but as one day passes, so does another.... To be fair, I've been rather busy.

All of my midterms are finished now! I'm pretty sure I bombed my math exam, but that is just how it goes. I wasn't born with the same math skill as my elder brother, so that's just how it is. All of my other exams were fairly easy!

And movies we have watched since then.... My entire family has been rather busy, and the media world has been busy with all the award shows! It's trying to actually fit in a film watching.

A few nights ago we watched Despicable Me since everyone was tired and we had all seen it before. It's a pretty damn heart-warming film. I really enjoy it.

We also went to the theatre and saw Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. If you are looking for old man eye candy, maybe this movie is for you. I, for one, enjoy the old men, but I found the plot interesting, too. Albeit a bit hard to follow due to the numerous names and faces that aren't always obviously tied together (and some of their accents).... I think if I had read the novel beforehand or had been watching it with full subtitles, I might have fared better.

I need most everything with subtitles nowadays. My sister had tainted me! She watches everything with english subtitles if the film allows it.

And - the inevitable - let's talk about anime.

1. Katekyou Hitman Reborn!

I've completely caught up with the manga, and it's fair to say I'm absolutely addicted. The plot is stupid as heck, the characters are silly, but I'm loving every second of it. I really like the Shimon family and I'm glad they're staying in the story. Shitt P is ranking high in my favourite characters. She is such a babe!

I've also picked up the anime, in which I am on episode 2. Leave it to Artland to create utter shittery out of a nice style, but that's just how it goes. They absolutely murdered Eyeshield 21, I wasn't expecting much from this. Keep it in mind, it's been a few years since my initial viewing and my tolerance with anime quality is much tighter now. I'm watching these low-quality anime from a few years ago in between the currently airing shows and the difference is painful many times. It's okay, though, because I am getting a lot of laughs out... even though it is in a way the studio was probably not hoping for....

2. Kill Me Baby

I read what was released of the manga a while back and thought it was funny enough. When I heard they were going to animate it I was stoked! But now that it is released.... I much wish that Recorder to Randoseru and Kill Me Baby would switch time lengths. Sonya is the only character with a tolerable voice. The other two goons literally put me to sleep. I am not joking. I got 16 minutes into the episode, lay down on my bed, fell asleep for 15 hours. It's bad stuff. The gags are too slow, the speech to slow. I'm just not having it. Thinking of dropping (which I never EVER do.)

3. Recorder to Randoseru

3 minutes of pure humour. I really like quick and short gags (like Gag Manga Biyori) so this was right up my alley. Nothing much to say beyond this except I hope there will be quite a few of these little shorts!

4 Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

I've only seen the single episode so far, but this is a pretty funny show, too. It can pull itself well, and Gintoki's seiyuu (name on tip of tongue) does a really great job as glasses friend. I haven't bothered remembering their names yet. I really loved the riverside scene.

5. Inu x Boku SS

Manga is tiring. Anime is just as if not more tiring. All of the characters are rather uninteresting. Hm.

6. Litchi Hikari Club

My friend had been talking about this for a long time, and two days ago I finally took the bait and read it.

Damn. It's amazing. I really enjoyed it. The art, the story, the everything. Of all the characters, Litchi, Niko, and Kanon were the most interesting. Nice urinal jab.

And well....

Redline is coming out tomorrow! If I end up picking it up, we'll be watching that.

See you.

Hey there. Today is the day where I don't do anything. No bike ride (I keep on falling further under the weather) and also no movie night, either.

So, why not introduce myself? So far, I'm a stupid internet anime nerd who is watching a bunch of movies but not doing a very good job so far.

So why not a picture of myself from yours truly...

Sorry for the awful picture... don't have the will to insert much effort.

Anyhow, I'm a teen finishing up her last year of high school. I have an affinity for oversized jackets and sweaters and all of my jeans have holes in them though I wish they didn't. My docksiders are my babies and they mean the world to me. My hair is also a mess of sorts between my natural blonde-ish brown and a mixture of dark hair dye that hasn't left me and this shampoo that brings out light blonde highlights. Frankly, it looks kind of gross, but whatever.

As one would probably figure by my previous posts, I really love anime. It started when I was in elementary school. Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo was my anime girlfriend and I had a secret infatuation with Zoids and such. I didn't get into it again until I watched Fullmetal Alchemist in middle school which, funny enough, I have not read the manga or finished either series. Call it odd! I really loved it when I was that age, though.

Anyhow, now I casually watch with the seasons and watch older series I've missed out on. I've currently got about 300 series complete and about 100 manga series finished.

Now, top 10s!

9. Until Death Do Us Part
10. High School Debut

I've just recently become a manga consumer (I used to buy them, but I ultimately stopped reading once I ceased the purchasing) so my tastes might be a little.... immature. I know I have hardly read any of the magnificent series out there, but I'm working on it. I also have a high tendency to read really awful shoujo series.

I'm also an avid anime figure collector in my head. I do have a collection and I am active in the community, but I don't have the funds currently to really put myself into the hobby. I do order what I can, though, and I love it all!! Hugs figures I have.

Aaaand enough about anime. I also really love music a lot. I play the bagpipes personally, and I casually play the piano and whistle. I also used to play violin, but hell if I remember anything with that.

Another Top 10 list!! My fave musicians.
1. Stars
2. Labyrinth Ear
3. Small Black
4. Gem Club
5. The Notwist
6. Das Racist
7. Kid Cudi
8. Sleigh Bells
10. Satellite Stories

It changes all the time!! I really love listening to music though. Usually whatever I do is backed by it. Even when I'm in class I'm listening... even though generally they discourage it. I just function a lot better. I've been pretty sad lately because earlier this year my Zune died of harddrive failure so I'm using my old 4GB Creative Zen which hardly holds any music at all. That is just how it is, though!! I'm hoping one day my Zune will wake up one day and I will kiss it on the screen.

And what else is there to write about? I'm passive aggressive and very shy in real life and the internet. In real life I don't really leave my room much. I don't have very many friends, either. I have two really good friends whom both live rather far away, so seeing them is rather difficult and is certainly not often, either.... I wish I lived closer to them.

Online I have lots of friends!!! Even though I'm still pretty awkward I'm more myself here.... Which I'm glad for because they're all really cool and friendly and sweet and I hope they never read this because hello I'm a creepie pie.

Hmmmm I'm afraid of the dark and I had a phobia of birds for a while before Charley Harper healed my heart with his bird art. I'm not sure if I hate horror things or not because it scares me shitless but I humour the ideas constantly anyway. Which, in turn, is why I am afraid of the dark.

I love cats and my brother's cat is my biggest love ever. His name is Nico and he is such an awful thing but he can be such a sweetheart!! All the scratches on my hands are from him but that is because he has a lot of energy and he's a bit moody. I love him so much though he is an angel!!!!

And Nico is a good conclusion I'll leave it at that.

We're not even too far in and we're already taking a break....

Ah well. For the past few hours I've been working on clearing a drain which has been let alone for a good 12-13 years. Some sick nasty bullshit. Even after I've cleaned up the mess, my tub is still awful and will not drain correctly. And the person who made those snake wires that go down drains?? Absolutely flawed. One swipe and it's dead. Really bad.

Tomorrow night my sister has classes, so that's a no go, too.

That means on Wednesday we're going to watch Back to the Future 1-3. Or that is the plan!

Tomorrow is the start of mid-terms for me. I've already finished some of them, though, so it's no real pain in my ass until Friday. I'm a terrible math student. I've also got a faint cold or something going on. Just an achy throat and some stuffiness in the nose. At times I get ear aches, too. That comes with all sicknesses that find vacancy in my body, though. The pleasure!!

Well, goodnight.

Tonight we watched Arabesque starring Gregory Peck! My sister has a Gregory Peck film collection, so we picked one of the few she had seen. I hadn't seen it before.

It was pretty hit or miss with me. I really love Gregory Peck and how in a lot of his roles he is a glorious asshole. In this one I still really appreciated his character (I'm a sucker for terrible jokes), but all the rest of the characters and plot just didn't do it for me. The beginning of the movie was terribly interesting, but past that it was a pure drag. What stereotyping, too!

From now, I have no idea as to what we'll be watching tomorrow. Alls I know is that I'm rather tired.

Last night I finished Fate/Zero and I'm very excited for the second part to start in April. Waver and Rider are really just such charming characters. Oddly enough, Ryuunosuke and Caster are very interesting to me, too.... Even though they are grand monsters themselves.... Scary as fuck, I'd say.

I'm also really getting back into Katekyou Hitman Reborn!. I was really into it when I was in middle school, but just recently I picked it up again and I am now into the Future arc. It feels pretty odd, but I'm at a point now where it is entirely new material to me. When I stopped last time was around episode 80 which was near the beginning of the Future arc... Of course, I'm reading it this time, so I'm not sure how it correlates. To think I once kept up with this show! What dedication to stick through 80 episodes straight.... I think the only time I've been so devoted was Inazuma Eleven or Yumeiro Patissiere, heh. Anyhow, I'm really enjoying it despite how silly the plot is many times. My inner 14 year old is in love with Hibari - for his looks and his personality, and it's baffling me how silly it feels. My overall favourite has always been Lambo (5 year old form is my favourite), along with Ryouhei and Haru, but Hibari is killing me this time around. It's really moe when he is all forgetful and baby baby..... Alright, enough of that, self!

Nisemonogatari - I watched Bakemonogatari when it was airing to see what the rage was about it, and I have a tsundere like for it. Problem #1. I hate SHAFT. Problem #2. I hate Senjyougahara. These are two very big problems. Luckily, the rest of the characters make up for those two points and I found myself really liking the series.

Nisemonogatari had a very nice first episode if you removed the Senjyougahara beginning. She is so pretentious it drives me up a wall. I really enjoy Mayoi's and Araragi's interactions, so the rest of the episode is nice. I'm looking forward to more.

And on SHAFT... Hate is a strong word. I just find myself disliking most of their works. I'll admit I adore Arakawa Under the Bridge and its sequel, and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei tickles my funny bone at times (I haven't watched Goku or Zan yet), but many of their works just don't fit me.

My least favourite would have to be Dance of the Vampire Bund or Madoka Magica. Dance of the Vampire Bund is just purely terrible. Madoka Magica.... I will admit the premise is interesting, but the characters are so trite (aside from QB and Homura) that the whole 12 episodes felt like a waste of something that could have been much more interesting.

I've been thinking of rewatching Madoka, though.... So many of my friends adore it, and it almost feels like I am missing something. I wonder if I watched it with my hate goggles on? It almost feels like it.

Anyhow, good day to you.

wah wah wah

Tonight we watched Crybaby!! I thought it would be pretty serious, but man was that quickly thrown out the window. Another really good movie. Hatchet-face is adorable and Wanda is such a babe. Really good parents, too. Really really loved it. Wanted to draw all of the Drapes.

I mentioned Roman Holiday, so we might watch that tomorrow and then go through all of Gregory Peck's films. Past that.... well, we have no idea!!

Redline comes out on Blu-Ray on the 17th, and I'm hoping I can pick it up so we can finally watch it together. I've been talking about it for so many months, the two of us watching it. My hopes can finally be realized!! Something to be very excited about.

I also watched the first three episodes of Irresponsible Captain Taylor. I'm personally not that fond of space-themed shows. I find the space battles and things a bit too irritating. (Some Gundams and Legend of the Galactic Heroes aside) Tylor is enough to keep me loving it, though. What a cute sincere dude!

And I was talking to a friend about Fate/Stay Night's ending and I realized I hadn't finished Fate/Zero. I'm on it right now, and boy.... I've got three more episodes, but this show sure is a ride. Quality is always amazing (though I did see some low points in episode nine. Poor Irisviel). Surprisingly, I'm hardly interested in Saber and co. at all.... despite my love for Saber!! Rider and Waver are just so charismatic.... Many of the characters are.

And I also have to say this about episode 10... I think it has been my favourite so far. I'm personally really afraid of the dark, let along being by myself in the dark. Rin's adventure seriously scared me as she went through the alley ways, especially when you know the motives of Caster's master (cannot think of his name) and Rin's age. It made me realize I really love Rin. She's more of my baby than Saber I think. My Fate baby. (◡‿◡✿)

Well, enough of that. A good night to you.

Like I mentioned in my last post, I continued with the movie thing. Tonight it was a toss up between Crybaby and Superstar, and I closed my eyes and picked out Superstar of the two.

My sister had described a scene where the main lead is using a vibrator and it shoots out of her cooch and lands in a cake. Wrong movie, though!! It was pretty sweet and funny. Mary is a super sweet girl and I really liked Helen, too.

Tomorrow night we'll be watching Crybaby. Looks pretty moe, so we'll just have to see.

Also I forgot this on my list of favourite movies.... Pretty dumb.

Millennium Actress is my favourite film of all time. I honestly believe nothing can top it. It is the only thing I can truly consider a masterpiece.

But that's enough for today.... This weekend is pretty free and I've got some Blu-Ray rips of Irresponsible Captain Tylor dl'ing. I might also progress with Mobile Suit Gundam (I have sung the theme song far too many times today) or maybe attempt to finish Eyeshield 21 or Hayate no Gotoku.

I've just got these few series that are really killing me. I want to watch so many others, but past these few I've got currently on hold, I've got even more I've started and not finished!!

I'm currently watching nine series (one of which is an OVA), but I've got 12 more series on-hold. Lot's of irresponsible things like Gash Bell and Beelzebub.... What was I thinking!! I'm probably 40 or so episodes behind on Beelzebub!

It's 2012!! The fifth. Nothing much has happened yet.

The other day, my sister moved back in, and with her she brought a few boxes of movies. Most of which I haven't seen!! One might think she must be a movie buff or a movie hipster, but it's quite the opposite... It's more like I have terrible taste and I skip the classics and other good films...

To give you an idea, here are my favourite films.

1. Redline
2. Shawshank Redemption
3. The Good, The Bad, The Weird
4. Lion King 2
5. Spy Kids
6. Every romantic comedy to ever exist

I really do have terrible taste.

We've decided to work through them and maybe watch a movie a night, which would be cool. There's a lot of films in there I've never seen but I've been meaning to.... Like Lord of the Rings. I fell asleep for the last two... Also Save the Last Dance, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Back to the Future.... films even my mother is almost scolding me for not having seen, hah.

Last night we picked The Ring (of which my sister has two copies of...). I've seen it before.... and I'll just put it out there that I am a huge puss puss. I'm in love with horror and the paranormal, but at the same time it kills me.... Just kills me. I almost like to frighten myself.

Anyhow, I remembered little of it, except that it terrified me when I was younger. When I first saw it, my sister had this old TV from when my parents first got married. So it's from the 80's. And it would turn on and do nice exhibits of static shows. If you've seen the film, you know what kind of frights that can spell out...

Anyhow, I made it through (with the help of my sister and my cat) and I was pleased to find it wasn't all that scary! Honestly, the scariest bit was the menu screen. They really did a nice job with it. The horse scenes were also rather frightening, but horses are just kind of scary in general. And the film inside the film itself. I love black and white grainy pictures and such, but hell do they scare me! I am terrified of Rosemary's Baby based on the gaudy grainy green cover alone. But yes, The Ring is now off the list as "has watched twice and is not afraid of it anymore". Another childhood fear!! Possibly conquered.... Or not.

And the whole time.... I would have killed myself!! What an awful world Rachel and co. live in. Drab buildings. I rather liked her apartment she lived in, but Noah's studio.... absolutely wretched. Everything is wretched. Really scary scenery they had.

Tonight we watched Julie & Julia or however which way the names go in order. I honestly don't care. This is another one I've seen before, but once again, it's been a while.... My mum really wished to watch it, and my sister finished reading Julie's novel recently which sparked her interest in it. I mean, why not watch it? The film was much more disappointing the second watch through.... I mean, since I know Julie Powell is an absolutely hilarious bitch and the film did no justice to it! The book is now on my to-read list (another long list....) and then her other book about her cheating on her husband and being a butcher. What a wonderful woman!! In a very sincere sense do I say these words. Wonderfully terrible assholes are sometimes something I think fondly of. But yes, anyway.... I gave up on the movie near the end since I needed a shower. And here I am, typing this...

I'm hoping to see some more movies, be it unfamiliar ones or selections I think fondly upon. I'm particularly interested in watching Crybaby with Johnny Depp and delving into my sister's fine collection of Gregory Peck films....

What I really want to see are more of Oskar Werner's films!! I've really loves some of his works, and he is kind of a really gorgeous man... With no local renting store, I fear we'll have to turn to an online source! Or bargain buying DVDs online?? Who knows! I don't have the money for this.

So I'll leave it at this. I think I've found a purpose for this blog. It's a simple one.

I think I'll just write my thoughts when I feel it necessary to write them. Fair enough!

So basically this is a much less broken livejournal. I can get down on that.

Considering posting things like 'what I wore today' or things like that. Keep control of my life! Maybe just be a journal of 'what happened today' or 'what I got today'. Things like that.

Might just remove all linkage to remain completely anonymous on this site, though! Don't know. I don't know what to do with it?
