SBV at the movies.

I've had a bit of a movie buff weekend. Firstly, I went to see Up, which is amazing. Beautiful to look at, moving (I cried, like, a LOT) and hilarious... I might even love it more than Wall-E. I certainly cried a lot more. Also, 3D! (Benefit of 3D glasses: no one can tell you're sobbing.)

I also saw Zombieland, which is about as far removed from Up as you can get. I'm kind of terrified of zombies anyway (stupid thing, there are Reasons which I'm sure I'll go into at a later date) but it looked funny, and not that scary, so I risked it. And it was brilliant, and really funny, but some bits were also still scary and uncomfortable to watch. And now I have a new phobia of public bathrooms. THANKS, Zombieland.

Plus, zombie clown? WHY. The only thing worse would be a zombie shark.

I'm dying to see The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus, partly because I was always a huge Heath Ledger fan, but mostly because it looks really stunning. I've actually heard a few quite negative reviews from it, but visually, doesn't it look amazing?

This is mostly due to Lily Cole, who is one of those incredibly cool-looking individuals who really just should be art, or something. Good thing she's a model, really.

As does Where The Wild Things Are, which was one of my favourite books growing up. I will be running to the cinema to see it when it comes out, and I will beat my chest and roar like Max, the wildest Wild Thing of them all.

Finally, isn't this a beautiful movie poster? And so sad, when you know what happens. I may wait for DVD for this one, because I don't think even 3D glasses will be able to disguise what a blubbering mess I'm going to be.

How about you? Seen any good films lately? Or, if that subject is too boring for you - who would play you in a movie of your life? I'd like to think it would be Zooey Deschanel, but she is way hotter than I am. We have similar hair now, though! (Oh yes, I did that.)

PS - Still no laptop... :(


  1. I definitely agree with the Lily Cole observation...she is art.

    An actress who would play me, hmm I always identify with Sandra Bullock movies. So a younger Sandra Bullock could play me. Or maybe Drew Barrymore. Not sure who I look like in features, any ideas on that?

  2. >I will beat my chest and roar like Max, the wildest Wild Thing of them all.

    Wouldn't that get you thrown out of the cinema? *g*

    I'm looking forward to 2012, simply because it looks to be every disaster movie ever made in one film!

    I would like Dom Monaghen to play me in the movie of my life. Not sure it would be particularly interesting, though - maybe as some sort of weird experimental cinema...


Comments make my day. :) I love you.
