I'll write a more thorough weekend post later, but for now... meme! (ganked from gluecookie)

A. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
B. Then pick one of your favorite quotes from each movie.
C. Post the quotes in your journal.
D. Have those on your friends list try to guess what the movie is.
E. Bold the quote once it has been correctly identified and place the guesser's user name directly after the quote.

So, uh... good luck? It should maybe be noted that... I like comedies. They're all comedies actually. I'D

1. "Red. Red. *Red*. *Red*, Charlie boy. *Red*! Is the color of sex! Burgundy is the color of hot water bottles! Red is the color of sex and fear and danger and signs that say, Do. Not. Enter. All my favorite things in life."

2. "The fight! If it all goes wrong, drop the sword, take this off, and throw it at me. Then I say, "The boot! The boot was poisoned!" and die."
Midwinter's Tale/In the Bleak Midwinter, by taiyou_to_tsuki

3. "Oh good! My dog found the chainsaw!"
Lilo & Stitch, by taiyou_to_tsuki and 7veils

4. "Oh, him? He's harmless. Back in the sixties, he was part of the free speech movement at Berkeley. I think he did a little too much LDS."
Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, by taiyou_to_tsuki and 7veils

5. [speaking squirrel] "Squeaky, uh, squeak, sqeaker, squeakin'."
The Emperor's New Groove, by 7veils

6. "All right. Here's the plan. In the dead of night, you and I grab some provisions, hijack one of those... one of those longboats... and then, we... row back to Spain like there's no mañana!"

7. "Ye can't go walkin' into someone's residence, pokin' about their personal possessions, disruptin' their privacy... That's for Scotland Yard."

8. A: In spite of what you think, Monsieur B, there are professions where practice *does* make perfect.
[hits a high note, causing B's wine glass to shatter, and leaves angrily]
B: What in hell was that?
C: B flat.

Victor/Victoria(1982), by 7veils

9. "Well, I never did like the name Geraldine."
Some Like It Hot, by taiyou_to_tsuki and 7veils

10. X: "I want to get rid of some trash."
[the policeman holds out a wastebasket]
X: "I don't think I'd fit."

Things this week:
Monday: Saw a friend, ate quite nice Indian buffet (yum) and then we went to her house and watched Lilo & Stitch and The Rise of the Guardians. The first was just as awesome as I'd been led to believe, both for various representational reasons (Awesome POC! As the majority of relevant and positive characters! Awesome female character who was not stick-thin in a central role! Wheee) and because it was simply well done story and animation and all. More about that )

Meanwhile, The Rise of the Guardians was... ok, but I think it suffered from the comparison. The animation was lovely, the characters were cute enough but... the story and character dynamics were nothing new, and I don't think it would really stand up to any kind of feminist or post-colonial critique. (I mean, the cast is overwhelmingly male and white, so). Which is not exactly unusual either, but still. That said, there was something about Jude Law playing a bad guy. He has a nice voice. =A=

Tuesday: Slept until criminally late even for me so nothing much happened, except that I walked to the library and borrowed a giant pile of CD's (14) in the hopes of finding new music and/or new music to use in fanmixes I've been working on. I need to go back for more sometime...

And Today: Watched Face of Evil with my sister and it was good. Leelaaa~ She is awesome. Meanwhile, Four is a jerk but I think I'm starting to warm up to him as such. I mean, he does do dumb stuff (in an environment where Leela actually often knows better and against her advice) but then it generally leads to bad stuff/needing to be saved by her. Ha. And just, picking a random example of Leelawsome, "Oh you say the world is ending? No use covering on the floor then! *gets on with things*"

Also it amuses me that spoilers )

Next, I'm going to watch Leela's last serial because I do what I want. Also I want to do cute Leela/Andred stuff. >3>

On one hand I want to see Iron Man 3 and the new Star Trek film, on the other...
1) I shouldn't be spending money on that when living on handouts. Especially as I've already spent money on things I didn't really need this month...
2) Um, whitewashing? (definitely in the star trek movie and idek what is going on in IM3 with the villain who'd have been problematic the other way too???) That's just... depressing
3) I hear ST:ItD is put into useless post-production 3D that just makes the quality worse and the tickets more expensive so blegh.
4) I don't know if anyone I know is interested and going alone just feels a bit pointless.
5) At the very least I'd need to choose just one but which???

So I guess the conclusion is I'd better just forget about it. Oh well.

Also, I've been trying to plan this picnic thing for several weekends, and besides being too stressed the last two, this one (and the two free days before) the weather forecast was all "it miiight rain. Maybe!" so I decided to postpone again, and then the weather was perfect most of the day. Great.

Everything just feels stupid today. Should do something productive but I don't want to. I don't even feel like doing anything non-productive.

Title: No F***ing Place Like Home
Warnings: CRACK. Once again.
I want to leave the horror as something of a "surprise", but suffice to say Sanzo is dressed sort of lolita inspired-ly. Not in drag, mind you. He'd probably look manlier in drag. :P
Also, I find the picture a tad creepy. More so than was my intention, even...=_=;

Notes: Now, moe!Sanzo, don't look like that, I'm sure you're perfectly safe with those three...on second thought, here, have your gun back. Better now? ;3;
Oh, you call it Toto?

cut for the sake of the easily disturbed )

Saw the original 1954 version of Sabrina yesterday, which I've somehow missed before.
There's an odd sense of...delightful focus on details in the movie.
Not to mention I don't think I've seen a suicide attempt portrayed as a lightly comedic scene too often. :9

Also, Audrey Hepburn is scarily cute, whereas Humbrey Bogart's character Linus Larrabee was...he was downright devious!
Both when doing businessy stuff, and then later when he was emoing at Hepburns character to seduce her. So manipulative and I really shouldn't like that in fictional characters as much as I do :D ♥
Of course it helped he wasn't actually evil. *ahem*. :3

Poor bubbly David, he didn't have a chance. :'D

Also, got a new prompt. )

Ah, movies.

Went to see one this afternoon with my mother and younger sister. Absolutely loved the theater (one called Maxim in Helsinki). For one, it was built in 1909, and while the original building had to be torn down and rebuilt in the seventies, the particular theater we went in was built following the original design. It was so pretty I just goggled >_< ♥
The design fit uncannily well with the movie we saw, Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, since it was set in 1930, and most of the decor was pretty glamorous as well.
In short, I'd say it was an adorable movie.
Thought I could say more as well )

Oh, and I've been bemoaning about the fact most movie theaters show the same advertisement that are run on tv these days, whereas when I was a kid it was only trailers (I rather like trailers)
Well, they only showed trailers at this theatre. :D
It was like a time trip to a time when going to movies was really cool and awesome ¤_¤

Meant to post more of the weird fic...but I got cut of writing it by having to go to work, and then...aa, I'll write more soon.

Watched Wedding Banquet (a movie directed by Ang Lee, rewiev here: ) on the tv yesterday, and it was a really nice and lovely movie.
Glad I got to see it since first it seemed my mother and sister were going to watch another movie for the third time :/ , but changed the channel after I'd hinted a bit and went of to sulk...even though at that stage I was all: "No, just watch your movie, I'll borrow this one from the library, really..."
And they seemed to like it too, so I didn't have to feel all awkward for making them watch it. it possible to use lj-cut in a comment, I wonder? (I'll test :)
EDIT: Aww, apparently not.
stalkerbunny: (yay)
I's say it was, appropriately, like a rollercoster ride, fun, if shallow.
I wasn't expecting much, in a positive: "It won't be awful but not extraordinary either"-way, which is usually a pretty good approach, I've noticed.
In other words, my brain was on "Hee, explosions...oo, pretty."-mode most of the time. Rather enjoyable, I'll say. :D.
*Sigh* I wish I could draw costumes like that...
mildly spoilery )
