On season two of the original Star Trek series. I love this show to bits.

Just through with The Doomsday Machine episode, which was darling.

So I saw all of the first season of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" last night instead of working on my essay (because I am an idiot).

I love it! Will work my way through the next two seasons soon. :D

EDIT: Meant to say. Also watching episodes from Star Trek: The Original Series. I love them.

Just got back from a driving lesson. I have no idea how I'll ever get used to this. @_@;

On the bright side of things, going to an 80's themed party tonight!

I'm considering a Star Wars marathon in the summer but just thinking about the hours is killing me. D:

Saw "12 Angry Men" and "Midnight in Paris" yesterday. Loved them both. First time seeing the latter-- made me want to visit Paris.

"You shall not pass!" is my most quoted LoTR quote. Every single time I'm in somebody way's or at the door. :P

The marathon is definitely a morning-to-night deal. I couldn't have done an all-nighter, it would have been too tiring.

Saw "A Dangerous Method" today. It was alright... lacking, I think.

I've always wanted to do this.

You rule

Yes, yes I do. :P

We started at 10am and finished by midnight. My Sunday disappeared into Middle Earth!

Just sat through a Lord of the Rings movie marathon (extended editions).

That was really fun but I'm exhausted now. D:

Incidentally, my Reading Week just began.

Also termed "Innovative Learning Week", which means the respective colleges set up non-mandatory events/talks/fairs for their students to attend. I'll probably go to the careers fair.

You'd think they would have improved the CG by now, but the wolves still don't look that good. I just don't understand why they didn't go with traditional werewolves. This is especially ridiculous during the scene where the wolves are "talking" to each other. SO laughable!

I'm ashamed of myself for knowing this but that's because (coded just in case):

Code: [Select]
They aren't supposed to be werewolves. It's revealed in the last half of the final book that although they consider themselves to be werewolves, they're actually spirit wolves. Some kind of native american concept where the tribe takes on the form of an animal spirit; so in their case it's a wolf (could have easily been bear or lion or whatever).
I actually just saw BD: Part One last night too. Eh. Much like the books, none of the movies are particularly good. But I'll prolly see the last film as well. :P

Saw "The Muppets Movie" today! I thought it was really fun. I'm not a huge fan of them but the cameos were delightful, the tunes were catchy and the jokes made me giggle. :D

RE: The Help. I can understand why people don't take its connotations on African American issues seriously; I don't think that's what it tries to do. It's trying to convey feeling in regards to a particular form of relation between the two races. 

Aaaw, but I liked that part. And I loved that line ("That's what people do"), it made me laugh. :'(

Have you seen the second season yet? He's more likeable when your only impression isn't just that initial scene of craziness.

I didn't really like the Moriarty reveal or even Moriarty himself. Just too frickin' weird. The voice. The mannerisms. He's just so...odd. What the hell kind of supervillian is this? Oh well. look forward to watching series 2 when it comes to the states.

God knows I love the show.... but yeah, I agree.  I found him too off-putting and strange to be taken seriously, which is unfortunate for a really serious character.

Goosey will hate me bringing it up, but I liked the Moriarity casting for the Guy Ritchie "Sherlock Holmes".  That guy at least had an air of smart and distinguished that really countered and shocked when he turned to be so cold, evil, and calculated.

I sort of prefer the Sherlock version of Moriarty because he's so weird. His initially eccentric behaviour lends an element of surprise to the cruel, deliberate reality of his plans. Ritchie's Moriarty, to me, is a little predictable. He doesn't challenge my notion of what a villain is and because of that I found him to be boring in comparison to the BBC character.

At any rate, I think Moriarty can be an acquired taste. He's definitely improved upon in the second season.

Nursing homes depress me. It's the smell. Like the flesh is rotting on their bones.

We don't get many of those homes in KL; people usually get taken care of by family or relatives (or they return to their kampung in the rural area).

Saw "The Shawshank Redemption" (wonderful as always) and "The Help" yesterday. The latter was good. I liked it and I liked that a lot of it is the way I visualized the book to be; but the book is still infinitely better. They cut out some of my favourite scenes.

Watched "The Elephant Man" today and thought it was really sad. I cwied. :(

I'm currently reading.... the first Winnie-the-Pooh book.

And it's lovely. I just have a lot of children's books to read right now (sort of doing research for something). "Aesop's Fables" and "The Wind in the Willows" are next, followed by some of Kipling's "Just So Stories", maybe. :)
