tiggz: (edward cullen is staring at you)
so here's the thing. the first time i saw it, i saw it with a group of friends and we went to a restaurant beforehand and i had some drinks. i had a feeling i was going to need to be a little tipsy do deal with the crazy fangirls and the oozing cheese that was sure to come onscreen. turns out the fangirls were really well behaved. they didn't even squeal the first time RPattz came onscreen. i was also sitting next to a girl(a stranger) who was a sarcastic bitch just like me. so we had a good time snarking.

that being said, )

there's probably more that i'm forgetting, but yeah. this is the jist of it. didn't love it. didn't hate it. won't own it unless i end up loving the rest of movies and want a complete collection.
tiggz: (evil hand)
omg! i know i haven't posted in a while, but i was just flipping through the channels and guess what i came across? Love Song on Lifetime. right now!! oh Christian Kane, you used be such an object of my affection. how the mighty have fallen. however, he's still completely drool-worthy in this. so go turn it on!

Kanies, do you remember how obsessive we were about this movie? heh. some of us even started posting at ck.net after it aired.
tiggz: (doctor - mummy?)
only a couple more hours and the UKers will be enjoying the season finale of Doctor Who!! then only an hour or so more until the rest of us in the world can join in the squee/wtf/aaaaaaaaaah(!!!)-ness of it. this week has been a nail-biter after that cliffhanger RTD left us with.

now i think i will go watch Forgetting Sarah Marshall to get my mind off how long i have to wait.

oh! p.s. i saw Wanted last night. didn't love it as much as i thought i would, but it was definitely entertaining and 2 hours or so of James McAvoy is never a bad thing. even if he was sporting a generic american accent.
tiggz: (mrs. coach - made of awesome)
i love coming online and seeing my flist exploding!! Twilight trailer FTMFW, y'all!!!

p.s. i saw Iron Man yesterday and it is also made of awesome. i've been an RDJ fangirl for a while now. i so hope he's finally put all of his demons to rest.

p.p.s. Sam and Deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeean!!
tiggz: (veronica - hmmm)
*waves* to the new friends i've made via the SCC friending meme!

i'm trying to decide how i want to spend my day. i have the house all to myself this weekend since my sister and the kids decided to go visit my other sister in memphis. the plan, really, is that there is no plan. i'm going to watch movies and generally lounge about. i'm just trying to figure out what i want to watch first. i think i'm in the mood for a RomCom. that leaves The Accidental Husband and Penelope. hmmm...

i also have two weeks or so of Torchwood to catch up on. i've been pretty impressed with it this season. last season was pretty hit or miss and they seemed too absorbed with trying to be "edgy" with all the sex. i wouldn't necessarily say that's been toned down this year, but it's definitely done in a more appealing way.

on a different note, RPattz is totally Edward Cullen for me now. look! he has topaz eyes!! Kristen has definitely become Bella too. i love that they are making small changes to her(like the chocolate brown contacts) to make her more like how i imagined Bella looking. i just hope i can be this excited when we finally start seeing pictures of Jacob pop up.

okay. going to watch a movie and maybe make a chef boyardee pizza for lunch. ttfn.

i have achieved my goal of watching 100 movies in 2007!! yay!! i even have two days to spare to watch more than that if i so choose. it was really touch and go there for a while on whether i'd actually get this accomplished. i really fell behind after the middle of the year. i enjoyed doing it though. i like being able to go back and see what movies i've seen this year and how i felt about them. i may do it again next year.

now i suppose i should choose a favorite. it's kind of tough, actually. there were many that i would never watch again(though for differing reasons), but there were also plenty that i ended up watching more than once this year. i really don't think i could choose between Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and The Departed as my favorite. very different movies, but both fabulous. honorable mentions go to Zodiac and Stardust.
tiggz: (stanley - WHAT is wrong with you?)
oh Twilight fandom. my eyes, they are rolling. who cares about the effing movie? movie adaptations of books are never satisfying. we all knew going in that casting Edward(and any of the Cullens, really) was going to be an impossible task because no human is as pretty as they're supposed to be.

see the movie. don't see the movie. i don't care. but all of this chicken little crap before a single shot has been filmed? BO-ring. i'm at least going to give the actors a chance to win me over. who knows, maybe they'll become the mental picture i have when i re-read the books or maybe the movie will be so different from the book that it will be unrecognizable. point is, we don't know. so how about we save the bitching and moaning until after we see the movie?

thus ends my soapbox climb...
tiggz: (billy/madolyn - comfort)
i just watched The Departed for the third time. this time with my father. he loved it too. (still as good as the first time in case you were wondering...)

i really can't wait for the dvd to come out on tuesday so i can watch all of the special features. that'll be the last of my best buy gift certificate from christmas.
tiggz: (saracen - hoodie)
you know what scene from The Departed just broke me? this one. )

[caps courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] leahs_caps]
tiggz: (movie addict)
The Departed? WOW. was Leo seriously not nominated for Best Actor for an Oscar? damn. i do believe this is now my favorite Leo movie. did anybody else feel like Matt Damon was just playing Matt Damon? could be my severe dislike of him, but he does cocky asshole very, very well. obviously this means 100 Movies has been updated. 17 movies in 5 weeks? not a bad start.

*cough*My Valentinr - tiggz*uncough*
tiggz: (le tired by me)
my 100 Movies in 2007 post has been updated. next on the agenda is Lollilove.

i have other things to post about, but it will have to wait until it's not midnight.
tiggz: (movie addict)
everyone else is doing it and since i've started out the year so well, i figured why not?

tiggz: (angela - my so-called life)
i've had my netflix account on hold for about a year because it just stopped being cost effective. i wasn't watching movies enough to warrant that monthly charge. they'd sit for weeks on my entertainment center unwatched and sometimes even mailed back before i'd watched them because i'd had them for so long i just didn't have any interest in watching them anymore. well...since all my shows are on "fall hiatus", i decided to start using it again. only problem is i can't think of any movies to add to my queue.

so help me, dear flist. recommend some movies i should add. i like everything, really. not a huge fan of horror, but i'll watch an occasional one. as long as there are no zombies. i don't do zombies.
tiggz: (veronica - awww!)
okay. so i just caught the last half hour or so of My Date With Drew, the documentary about a guy trying to get one date with Drew Barrymore. that was the most adorable documentary i've ever seen in my life. i need to see the whole thing now.

adorable concept, adorable guy and Drew Barrymore is awesome.

has anyone else seen it?
tiggz: (doctor - ten - brilliant!!)
know what's fun? finding one of your favorite movies of all time on tv sans commercials. old school Eddie Furlong. wheeeeeeeeeeee!!

(sidenote: how much better would Terminator III have been if Eddie hadn't been in rehab and they hadn't had to recast him with Nick Stahl? A MIILION TIMES!! that's how much.)
tiggz: (ipod love!)
Donnie Darko has one of, if not the, most beautiful scores i've ever heard. i seriously could just listen to it all day. what about you? do you have a favorite?
tiggz: (veronica - vanna)
there have been some posts on my flist recently that tout movies they've seen as the WORST. MOVIE. EVER!!! every time i see posts such as these i think to myself, "self, have these people seen Harvard Man?" in most cases i must conclude that no, it's not possible that they've seen Harvard Man and can still call any other movie the worst they've seen.

Harvard Man isn't even bad in such a way as one can mock it a la [livejournal.com profile] eirefaerie and [livejournal.com profile] dachelle. it's so bad i've done everything i can to brain bleach it. truly. so if you find yourself wanting to watch it even after this post, don't blame me.

with an un-pimp, i feel the need to pimp. do you know who Tina Majorino is? sure you do! when she was a wee little thing she was in such movies as Corrina, Corrina and Andre. these days she's all grown up and starring in such movies as Napoleon Dynamite and extremely awesome shows like Veronica Mars and Big Love. i'm not going to pimp her acting even though it's phenomenal. what i am going to pimp is her band, The AM Project. go give 'em a listen. she has a great voice, there are great harmonies, good hooks and a pretty wide range of appeal.
tiggz: (bender - demented and sad but social)
it's so freaking nice to have cable and internet again. i'm watching The Breakfast Club for about the millionth time. i love this movie so freaking much. i could watch it every day and not get tired of it. so many quotable lines.

"screws fall out all the time, sir. the world's an imperfect place."
"why does andrew get to get up? if he gets up, we'll all get up. it'll be anarchy!"
"so it's sorta social. demented and sad, but social."
"do you think i'd speak for you? i don't even know your language."

plus so many others. this is one of those movies that gets quoted constantly in my family. especially the "how'd you like to go fishing this weekend" quote. my cousin and i can recite the entire movie while watching. we drive others insane when we do so, but it's our way. *g*

ION, i just finished listening to the first ever VM podcast. it's a bit rough at the moment, but i have a feeling they will feel more comfortable as time goes on. listening to it kind of reminded me of the fun i used to have listening to Kitty and Candy on the Succubus Club. i miss those two.

Happy Belated Birthday [livejournal.com profile] carencey77!!!

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] faithx5 and [livejournal.com profile] dunlin!!!

tiggz: (wash/zoe - adoring you)
i just watched the deleted scenes on the Serenity dvd. i have to say, if they had left a lot of those scenes in it would have been much more my movie. don't get me wrong, i loved it. i'm very much glad that Joss got to tell his story. however, River was never my favorite character. neither was Simon. i'm all about Inara, Mal, Wash and Zoe. i want to know more about them. i want to see more of what we did in Firefly with each character getting their fair share of screentime. i think that's why i've got a small, burning hope that this isn't the end. that in the next movie i will get to see more of the characters i love. it's also why i much prefer Firefly over Serenity.

oh and the Re-Lighting the Firefly special feature? made me weepy. i am, indeed, a sap.
tiggz: (kristen - *smoooooch*)
[livejournal.com profile] carpedi7!!! i totally was not expecting you to actually buy me Indian Summer! my mom was going through the mail and pulled it out and asked me what i ordered. i said, "nothing, must be the printer cable from dell." pleasant surprise! *smoooooooooch* you are the sweetest. now decisions must be made. Indian Summer or House...

also want to thank [livejournal.com profile] quaint_shopgirl, [livejournal.com profile] emraldmyst, [livejournal.com profile] socks_192 and [livejournal.com profile] catmint68 for the cards i've gotten. i hope i can reciprocate sometime soon. *smoooooches* to all of you too.
tiggz: (logan - *sniff*)
last night the family and i watched Elf. i have so much love for this movie. it is SO SILLY, but it never fails to make me laugh. i don't even really like Will Farrell, but i've decided watching Elf is going to become a holiday tradition for me. much like watching Rudolph or The Grinch. my reaction to Elf is much like my reaction to Liar, Liar. i don't really like Jim Carrey in anything else(except Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and it doesn't really count as a normal Carrey movie), but Liar, Liar is one of my favorite movies. so if you haven't seen Elf simply because Will Farrell gets on your last nerve, believe me, it's funny.

this morning upon waking, i remembered my dream. well...i remembered what i was dreaming about. not really what was happening. normally this doesn't happen unless the dream is tramatic in some way. this one? not so much. i was dreaming about the VM chronology project. i have no idea why because it's been ages since i've watched it. maybe it was because i'd been reading my flist and saw people expressing a wish for flashbacks to make a comeback. *shrug* human brains are a mystery to me.

in other fandom news, i can't believe there aren't more sleeves icons. surely [livejournal.com profile] buffyx and i aren't alone in our kink. i refuse to accept that.

Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] kittyajh!!!

using my only semi-sleeves icon. want moooooooore!!!
tiggz: (aeryn/john - not so alone)
just watched Crash. one word. wow.

p.s. thanks for the responses to my previous post. i may not respond to them right away(or let's face it, ever), but they really did provide me with some much needed comfort.


Oct. 1st, 2005 10:05 pm
tiggz: (inara close up)
just got home from Serenity. spoilery comments under here... )
tiggz: (veronica - watching by soniablu)
i saw it tonight. very enjoyable movie, but those who told me i probably wouldn't enjoy it as much after seeing the masterpiece that is Batman Begins? you were right. don't get me wrong...i really liked it. it just didn't punch me in the gut and then kiss me to make it better like Bats did.

also? totally get everyone who said they didn't know who they were attracted to more in the movie. the pretty was almost unbearable at times. guh.

now...bed. so glad tomorrow is friday.
tiggz: (evangeline - oooh by starrylove)
wow. that fucking rocked. )

thanks to everyone for their input in my poll. my dad and i couldn't make up our minds because we wanted to see both. maybe Mr. and Mrs. Smith will be next week. oh and i was very disappointed that i didn't get a Serenity preview.
