  1. In case you missed it: request a gift! If not for you, then definitely for me - I'm getting excited at the thought of doing these.

  2. I'm also offering letters (!), except now I don't know what to write in them! "Hi, I watched this movie today and it was terrible. I don't know if you're interested in that though. I went to the library and got a lot of books. Yesterday I went shopping!" (Note: I will not say that, I'm just showing you how awkward I am.)

  3. I hope you guys have posted your threads at the Holiday Love Meme, because it's ridiculously fun and flattering. I'm beginning to realise I have 'tells', which I don't want to specify because it's embarrassing. I did try very hard to keep away from the parentheses, though. I overuse them.

  4. My thread is wonderful. I LOVE YOU ALL and you make me sappy.

  5. I don't actually care for the Golden Globes because they're mostly rubbish (the fact that shows like United States of Tara and Nurse Jackie are nominated for comedies is outrageous, and combining the supporting actor category makes no sense to me), but throwing in nominations for The Tourist and Burlesque made me think less of everything else on that list, so well done, HFPA. You are the worst. I'm actually declining to talk about you, and considering I can blabber about pretty much anything, that actually means something!

    (Although I want to quickly address one tiny thing, because not enough people will talk about how egregious this is: Piper Perabo over Anna Torv?! Are you kidding me? I know that every academy has something against genre TV, but I do not understand. Did they run out of people to nominate or something?)

  6. The Vampire Diaries is impressive - I'm constantly surprised by the control the writers have over the stories and characters, how plots affect the way other plots unfold, and the way every character is well-rounded, interesting, and has a purpose in the show's narrative. I feel bad for 'shipping any two characters that have a scene together, because I feel like I may be approaching the show the wrong way. Oops?

  7. Movies I need to see -

    • Pride & Prejudice (Wright)
    • The Social Network
    • The Kids Are All Right
    • A Single Man
    • No Country for Old Men
    • Let the Right One In
    • Winter's Bone
    • The Squid and the Whale
    • Jeux d'enfants / Love Me If You Dare
    • Son of Rambow
    • The Big Lebowski (I know, I know)
    • Please Give
    • Strictly Ballroom
    • Sunshine

    • I Capture the Caslte
    • Waiting for Guffman
    • Ghost-Busters (I know)
    • the LOTR trilogy (I'm so sheepish about this that I don't want to type it out in full)
    • Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
    • Kick-Ass
    • Beautiful Girls

    • West Side Story
    • The Apartment
    • Notorious (1946)
    • Vertigo (which I've seen, except it was a while ago)
    • The Red Shoes
    • A Matter of Life and Death
    • The Apartment
    • Some Like It Hot

    I may not get through all of these (I probably won't), but I'd really love to get through the older ones, especially Powell/Pressburger and Billy Wilder. I have seven months free!! Watching the older movies - and not even the artsy ones, but the extremely well-made ones that were still widely-adored - is not only going to be fascinating, but is kind of important to me. I'm also kind of considering Akira Kurosawa's retelling of Macbeth, Throne of Blood, which sounds painfully pretentious, I know. Sorry for being interested!

    In other news, I tried to watch The Hangover and could not stand it. I am fine with dumb comedy, and everyone loves this movie, so clearly there was something wrong with me or my mood.

  8. Also, I am still extremely excited about Rian Johnson's movie, whenever it will happen. Two years ago I ripped just the audio from a couple of movies because I loved the dialogue and wanted to see how much of the visuals I remembered, and I may do it again the next time I go overseas, except I'm not sure what I'd choose. Brick, with its own lexicon and the precise but rapid delivery of its actors, came to mind, except I'd feel bad to experience the movie without its gorgeous visuals.

  9. I want to watch The King's Speech, except it has no release date here in Singapore, and I promise you I will whine about this as often as I whine about it out loud, to my family and friends. Ha! 127 Hours is out on my birthday next January, though, which is exciting.
