This censored cut of Kill Bill vol. 1 on TNT is fascinating. They cut out all of the blood sprays and a lot of the moments of impact for particularly brutal blows. What is the point of even airing it?! Then again, here I am with it running in the background.

I ate way too much candy/junk crap today. Ugh. I hope the weather cooperates tomorrow; I really feel like running this off.

Been kind of anxious/bummed out this weekend. But on the plus side, I've never been trapped near the summit of Mt. Everest during a violent storm like the people in the Frontline documentary I've been watching. That puts things in perspective, just a little bit.
effervescible: (this is acceptable)
Seriously. Assuming they follow through on the rights. You know what needs to happen now, right?

Sora. In. Ankh-Morpork.

Scott Pilgrim was awesome. Seriously, when was the last time you saw a non-opening week theater crowd applaud at the end? It was great, loads of fun and helped take my mind off things. It's too bad that it kind of bombed, but I can easily see it having a long life as a DVD cult classic.

Also I want to look like Ramona Flowers.

Now I'm going to go to bed and stare at the ceiling, because I drank aaaaaall of my very large small-size Coke Zero, because gosh darn it, I paid for it.

Ponyo is like a sugar-coated acid tab wrapped in pages torn from a book of fairy tails doodled on with a watercolor paint set.

-Jesus Christ, self, DO NOT read the comments on news posts about Judge Sotomayor's confirmations hearings. I don't even mean blogs, I mean mainstream non-slanted articles. They are a cesspool of hideous racism. There's probably at least one person out there saying "hey, I have a problem with this nominee based on these facts over here" but they are apparently not hanging out in the comments section! I wanted to vomit, hit something, and cry. In that order.

-I'm going to Otakon starting Friday evening and crashing with the lovely Ms. [livejournal.com profile] roserevolution. So glad we ran into her at Anime Next like three years ago and demanded her friendship. If anyone's going, PM me your cell # or something. I'll admit it, I'm antsy; I'm going because there are people I want to see, and I have a ton of (irrational?) fondness for the con itself. This'll be #7 for me, the most times I've been to a con. But yeah, I do worry that it'll make me kinda BAWWWWW I MISS MY OLD JOB I WANT TO BE IN THE INDUSTRY AGAIN BAAAAWWW. Like I was saying to [livejournal.com profile] loosewiring, it does feel kind of stupid to feel worried about the emotional impact of an anime convention. But for better or for worse, that sort of thing was a big part of my professional life for years, and thus a big part of how I defined myself. So...it'll be interesting. I think it'll be a good time overall, but I can't guarantee I won't have to breathe deep to forestall a couple of teary moments.

-I finally saw Up. It was awesome. I cried THREE TIMES and I am not a huge movie crier. Yeah, just give it the Oscar now, cuz there's nothing that has or will beat it this year.

1) Does anyone want to go see Star Trek in IMAX? I saw it once already, but there's an IMAX theater right by me and the movie was boss, so I'd kinda like to see it again, but bigger.

2) Does anyone want to go to Great Adventure sometime soon? I has a roller coaster craving.

Aren't special movie preview screenings usually weeks before a movie hits all theaters, not a few hours before? Whatever. Summer's fiance got tickets to a showing earlier this evening, and omg. I am not even a big Star Trek fan, but this flick hit it out of the park on ALL levels. Actors were great, story was great. One plot point that could've seemed really contrived and stupid was actually pretty cool. Not sure if that's because of the writing or the quality of the actors, but it doesn't really matter.

It's awesome. Go see it.

Michael Gambon is a better Dumbledore than Richard Harris and I will cut* anyone who disagrees.

*I won't actually cut anyone.

In other filmy news: Lane's hilariously overbearing mom from Gilmore Girls is checking into Grey's Anatomy later this month. Emily Kuroda will play a patient in the March 19 episode. OH YES. I am so tuning in for this. If I can't have Emily Gilmore meet House, this is the next best thing.

Also, on TAR, I've never been a huge fan of the U-Turn. I prefer stuff like the Fast Forward, which puts emphasis on teams being proactive themselves rather than tearing other teams down. But the drama lover in my is PSYCHED about the anonymous aspect of this season's version.

Man, I shouldn't have watched chunks of all the Harry Potter movies that aired this weekend. Them + finishing my re-read of Deathly Hallows makes me want to see a film version of the Battle of Hogwarts real bad, and I have a whole movie to go through first! Two, if the splitting-DH-in-twain word is correct.

Armageddon is a ridiculous movie, but kind of adorable all the same.

Now THIS is an OTP. Icon not withstanding.

Man, I love this movie far too much.

(Not sure if I'm gonna liveblog the whole thing. We'll see!)

8:26 - I gotta say, the red carpet gushing is kind of nauseating.

8:30 - Some kind of CGI intro thing that looks way cheaper than it should. LOL, I sense someone didn't have enough time to do something cool after the writer's strike ended!

8:33 - Aaaand Jon Stewart gets in his first SNAP of the evening. I hope to see many more.

8:41 - I don't know whether it was out of respect for the somber time in the industry, the lack of time to prepare or something else, but the opening monologue...not very funny. A few good jokes though.

Cut for winner spoilers )

I was so tired this morning I put the coffee pot on the machine without pouring it into the brewer. Mmm, hot water.

Cloverfield had some cool previews. Iron Man looks surprisingly awesome, Hellboy 2 looks fun (though I wanna see the first one with sound and sans vomit first) and the Star Trek teaser, though it revealed very little, was pretty great as well.

Aright, it be Cloverfield spoiler time )
effervescible: (owned)

Scary/suspenseful, too. [livejournal.com profile] lovediamond and I had to hold hands at certain points.

More tomorrow, maybe. I have to get up in a few hours.
effervescible: (you can't drink just six!)

It's not as compelling as the teaser or trailer, but hot damn I can't wait for this movie. Cannot fucking wait.
effervescible: (renji - how YOU doin?)
Okay so Stardust = very fun indeed, Captain Shakespeare and the ghostly brothers won most of all. And Claire Danes has very pretty glowy hair. Happier-than-the-book ending, but! Quite satisfying indeed.

And then I kissed a boy some more.

Snakes on a Plane > PotC 2

In fact, Snakes on a Plane > everything ever

Seriously, y'all. Go see it. It will not disappoint.

From a Netflix review of "The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars":

"Like Homer's Odyssey, you have all the elements of the epic adventure tale. Toaster, Lampy, Radio, Kirby and loveable Blanky begin their journey when they realize that Robbie, the household baby, has been beamed mysteriously up to Mars. It's up to our heroes, plus several other assorted household items, a fan, a microwave and a bag of cheddar-flavored popcorn, to bring him safely back home. Like Odysseus's triumph over Troy and arduous journey home to reclaim his kingdom, Brave Little Toaster must pass through many obstacles, reminiscent of the Sirens, the Wandering Rocks and Skylla before the Zeus-like Grandfather Clock (father time) a return to tranquility. Toaster himself is a complex character who seems to wear a series of masks in order to accomplish the complicated tasks at hand to keep the wily group together during the difficult times. If only for the character development of Toaster and the intense dialog between he and Lampy, the film is worth viewing."

Don't ask why I was looking up the Brave Little Toaster.
