One of my favorite movies is "The Best Years of Our Lives" which is about 3 WWII vets coming home and readjusting to civilian life with varying degrees of success.

It also sparked one of the best jokes on the Golden Girls: when Dorothy finds out Blanche is dating a military officer & plans to leave to become an army wife, she says, "Blanche, these aren't the best years of our lives, these are the LAST years of our lives."

I just realized there's a whole generation that remembers Robert Preston primarily as Centauri or Toddy.

I'm not crazy about the Music Man (I totally blame Matthew Broderick) so I'm okay with this.

I am also watching Victor/Victoria yet again, because I cannot change the channel once the clicker has found it and god damn, it seems some random ass channel is airing it almost nightly. I lurve Leslie Ann Warren's Chicago dance number. It's just so awesomely tacky and the bit about "someday we'll have an airport" just kills me.

I went shopping for a lint brush and somehow ended up with a new purse, a faux-vintage Pan Am travel bag (and no lint brush). It's as long and as wide as my Zelda bag, but it's taller and has exterior pockets on both sides which is nice. I'm also giddy over the Pan Am logo since my first airplane ride ever was on a Pan Am flight.

I am watching Playing By Heart right now! I'm having 1999 flashbacks. I feel like I should be listening to Hootie and the Blowfish and be browsing the Usenet.

I'm at the part where Jon Stewart comes to Gillian Anderson's house for dinner, and it is not going well. They play the cutest couple--it's not just because they're almost the same height but it helps.

OMG I forgot about Dennis Quaid in a gay bar, flirting with a drag queen.

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
The gunpowder, treason and plot,

I just wanted to mention I got to see the Golden Compass trailer right before POTC3, and holy crap.
I've been playing it cool ever since it went into production, not looking at production stills (with the exception of Nicole Kidman's costumes since I knew they'd be gorgeous) or looking for news about it online since my heart has been broken too many times with bad movie adaptations.

(I do admit I'm already bitching about the changing of Iofur Raknison's name to Ragnar Sturlusson, but that nitpicking is almost instantly quelled with the knowledge that IAN FUCKING McSHANE will be voicing the character--sure, Ragnar will probably not say "cocksucker" at any point in the movie but fucking Ian McShane!)

But oh good lord, the trailer looks so beautiful and I have such high hopes for the movie. I even found myself whispering, "please don't suck."

But onto pirates! Arrrrrrgh!

Damn you, fandom!

When I was watching Children of Men, I waiting for the mpreg miracle.

So the boyfriend is extremely relieved we won't be able to watch Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest together. He apparently is afraid of my fangirl squees once Jack Davenport appears as scruffy!Norrington. To hell with him I say.

And the revamped POTC ride just sounds so awesome. Johnny Depp with kohl eyeliner just makes everything better.

Also, I either have excellent google fu or I'm a creepy stalker: someone I know had a tv makeover! (She's told us a bunch of times; it's just that none of us have ever watched her episode or seen any stills.)

Oh my.
I think I'll be watching this movie for all the wrong reasons (omg nearlynakedFaramir!).

Since 300 is based on Frank Miller's comic, I wonder if he'll be "Of course they're not gay even though they're ancient Greek soldiers wearing teeny tiny leather g-strings... and I'm the goddamn Frank Miller!"

Think of your favorite underrated film, type the name into Google and do an image search. Find the best pic, post it in your journal, and have your friends guess the movie.


And to make it extra sweet, the first person to guess correctly gets a rose.

I finally caught the Elijah Wood Intel ad over the weekend.
I'm so glad the kitty hair is back.
It's pretty obvious they got a petite actress because he barely fits in her lap. I suspect if they got someone more average-sized, it would be a little too "sitting on Santa's lap."

I also saw V for Vendetta. I've been putting off reading the comic because of my bad experience with The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (soulless tripe! soulless tripe!). The movie's a bit heavy handed and they draw 9/11 parallels where there were none in the comic (isn't it all about 80s England and Maggie Thatcher?). It's also less about anarchy and more about up with people against an unjust government. Thankfully the Matrixy effects were kept to a minimum.

Stephen Fry's in it for a short bit as everyone's favorite gay uncle (unlike Remus Lupin who is everyone's favorite gay uncle on smack). I was afraid Star Wars had atrophied Natalie Portman's acting muscles but I really liked her in it, and I like her better bald than with long hair.
And Hugo Weaving's voice so sexay.

Speaking of sexay, omgsosexy!

Emma Thompson's makeup in Nanny McPhee repels me but I cannot look away.

And now it has 85% freshness at rottentomatoes.com

I don't really want to see this film but the snaggletooth (and Colin Firth) compel me.

O rly?

2005 Guide to Modern American History As Told Through Anne Hathaway's Hair in Brokeback Mountain

I hope she never really goes blonde because I don't think my poor shriveled heart could take it, and it would die pining for her auburn hair.

"A Christmas Gory" - Another movie trailer mash up where "A Christmas Story" has been reimagined as a horror film. I think it would have worked better if they didn't keep the "fragile" joke but see it for yourself.

I know quite a few Rentheads. Because of their enthusiasm, I feel compelled to watch the movie to see what the fuss is all about.

At the same time, Jim Poulos isn't in it ([livejournal.com profile] nafmij has trained me very well) and Chris Columbus is directing.
O god, o god, make him go away. He's like the Kevin J. Anderson of movie adaptations.

And what I'll be seeing will be a completely different experience (though I do cherish my own Johnny-come-lately Hedwig love).

I know some people were excited about the movie back in August though I don't know if other Rentheads hate this movie with the same ire I had when "Charade" was remade with Marky Mark. omgwtfbbq

The idea of Sean Bean speaking with a Minnesota accent makes me giggle so very much.
