The Visitor...

I watched The Visitor tonight...and it was amazing!

First the music is the freaking backbone of the movie...it moves you! I know totally lame way of putting it, but it's great! The Actors are amazing! I cannot picture anyone else playing their characters. But the whole film is visually stunning, the colors...everything...it's a definite treat!


So you should just freaking watch it already!!

Howl's Moving Castle...

I finally got around to watching Howl's Moving Castle and I loved it. I want to say that Hayes is the one who recommend it, because he's the only person I can think of who really likes anime.


The movie is beautiful! Hayao Miyazaki is amazing!! I would recommend it based solely on the fact that it's just beautiful! But the story is good too!


Plus Christian Bale shares his vocal talents to bring Howl to life. So you have a beautiful movie and a good story all brought to you through the extremely sexy voice of The Dark Knight himself!
But not only did I enjoy the movie, I just finished the book by Diana Wynne Jones. It was almost a completely different story, yet I'm not sure which one I liked better. Though I have to lean more to the book.


But either way you should definitely take the time to watch the movie and read the book. It was one of the most enjoyable books I've read in a while.

Valentines Day...

Despite the fact that I think Valentines Day is a rather ridiculous commercial holiday. I'm not one who wears black on Valentines day just to spite people...actually, today is a day that I specifically try not to wear black. I had planned a Lord of the Rings marathon for today, but that got interrupted when someone put Gone with the Wind in, and I remembered what an Amazing movie it is...though not the happiest love story, it's still a favorite! So here is a post related to some of my favorite movies, that give every woman unrealistic expectations on love...which in the end is probably why people spend so much money on Valentines day!
Stardust..."You know when I said I knew little about love? That wasn't true. I know a lot about love. I've seen it. I've seen centuries and centuries of it, and it was the only thing that made watching your world bearable. All those wars. Pain and lies. Hate... It made me want to turn away and never look down again. But to see the way that mankind loves... You could search to the furthest reaches of the universe and never find anything more beautiful. So yes, I know that love is unconditional. But I also know it can be unpredictable, unexpected, uncontrollable, unbearable and strangely easy to mistake for loathing, and... What I'm trying to say, Tristan, is... I think I love you. My heart... It feels like my chest can barely contain it. Like it doesn't belong to me any more. It belongs to you. And if you wanted it, I'd wish for nothing in exchange. No gifts. No goods. No demonstrations of devotion. Nothing but knowing you loved me too. Just your heart, in exchange for mine."--Yvaine

Spider-Man..."I said, um, Spider-man, I said, uh, the great thing about M.J. is when you look in her eyes, and she's looking back in yours, everything feels not quite normal, because you feel stronger, and weaker at the same time. You feel excited, and at the same time, terrified. The truth is you don't know what you feel, except you know what kind of man you want to be. It's as if you've reached the unreachable, and you weren't ready for it."--Peter Parker


Anne of Avonlea...
"Anne, I've loved you as long as I can remember. I need you."--Gilbert Blythe

"I don't want sunburst or marble halls, I just want you!"--Anne Shirley

Dear Frankie...
"He's got your eyes. They... pull you right in."
"You don't have to say nice things to me. I'm not paying you for that."
"So why don't you want to hear them?"--The Stranger and Lizzy

The Princess Bride...
"As You Wish!"--Wesley

Becoming Jane... "I am yours, heart and soul. Much good that is."--Tom LeFroy

Pride & Prejudice...
"You must know... surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I'd scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on."--Mr. Darcy

Emma...
"I do not wish to call you my friend, because I hoped to call you something infinitely more dear...I rode through the rain, but I'd ride through worse if I could just hear your voice telling me that I might at least have some chance to win you...Marry me. Marry me, my wonderful, darling friend."--Mr. Knightley

Penelope...
"I couldn't give her what she wanted."
"What did she want?"
"To be free"--Johnny and Penelope

Bridget Jones Diary... "I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much. Just as you are."--Mark Darcy

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back... "Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that...You like me because I'm a scoundrel. There aren't enough scoundrels in your life."--Hans Solo

Gone With the Wind... "No, I don't think I will kiss you. Although you need kissing badly. That's what's wrong with you. You should be kissed, and often, and by someone who knows how."--Rhett Butler

"I'm not asking you to forgive me. I'll never understand or forgive myself. And if a bullet gets me, so help me, I'll laugh at myself for being an idiot. There's one thing I do know... and that is that I love you, Scarlett. In spite of you and me and the whole silly world going to pieces around us, I love you. Because we're alike. Bad lots, both of us. Selfish and shrewd. But able to look things in the eyes as we call them by their right names...Scarlett! Look at me! I've loved you more than I've ever loved any woman and I've waited for you longer than I've ever waited for any woman...Here's a soldier of the South who loves you, Scarlett. Wants to feel your arms around him, wants to carry the memory of your kisses into battle with him. Never mind about loving me, you're a woman sending a soldier to his death with a beautiful memory. Scarlett! Kiss me! Kiss me...once..."--Rhett Butler

...Happy Valentines Day!!

Oh my goodness! This is a new favorite movie! I checked it out from the library and have watched it a good 7 times! It is hilarious!



I highly recommend it to anyone who has a sense of humor...and for those of you who don't, well...watch it with someone who will appreciate it!
