How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d
– Alexander Pope
So different. Brilliant.
so yesterday I got to release my inner nerd and get my copy of Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life signed by Bryan Lee O’Malley, the author. I went along with my partner in crime Succy, who took advantage of my fear of people and used it to make me squirm. On more than one occasion. In the end, I was happy with myself for saying hi to him and not quietly staring like the dweeb I most certainly am. A part of that happiness did come from getting the first frapino of the year. Delicious, despite my failed attempts to mix the chocolate with my straw and being called a noob by Succy. What a mean friend I have. Anyways, later that night, I went to the cinema and saw Fast Five. Holy crap, that movie was awesome. I’m not really an action movie kind of girl, but this has to be one of the best films I’ve seen. In my whole life. Not because it was life-changing, deep or had an important message. Because it was two hours and nine minutes of pure entertainment. Top notch. Oh, and everyone who’s going to see it, sit through the credits. Just do and you’ll experience some serious mindfuck. Waiting anxiously for the sixth film now.
Tune of the day CXXXIV, because it’s a good song. Simple as that.
It was frightening. It was disgusting. It was magnificent. Black Swan is probably the most intense film I’ve ever watched. I spent the entire 108 minutes on the edge of my seat, anticipating what was going to happen next with a mixture of horror and fascination. There wasn’t a single predictable moment, and even though my mind was constantly trying to work out what’s really happening, it didn’t become clear until after the movie was finished. After the last scene finished and the credits started rolling, I was just sitting there, staring at nothing. Shaken. I spent the entire evening thinking of it, and the more I thought about it, the more I discovered. A slow burn. It’s definitely the type of film that plays tricks with your mind.
Devastating. Beautiful. I loved it.
