See, here's the thing: there are four movies coming out this week that I really want to see (Chronicle, Safe House, Albert Nobbs, Our Idiot Brother). This would have been great any other week because a) Monday wouldn't have been a public holiday so most of those DVDs would have arrived a day early, meaning I could have watched some of them last night as well as tonight and b) I have to go to the auditions for 'Little Shop of Horrors' tonight, since I'm co-directing that (eeeeee!). Thank goodness, though, that I have study leave (and so few actual exams), so I can watch some of them tomorrow, too. So I'll choose what I'm watching tonight depending on the time.
Video of the week...
Oh, this Les Miserables trailer is lovely. Brings back memories of when I did makeup for our town version of it. Anne Hathaway's singing is heart breaking. Let's just say, I'm way more excited for it now!
Lammy voting has opened, and while I'm pretty sure most of you have already voted, if you haven't, consider this 16 year old girl from New Zealand. Because you know you want to.
A bit of randomness...
I might do another post showcasing my photos in the future, but here's one particular photo that I took while I was away that I really want to share. I think it's cool.
Whoa, This is Heavy has a fantastic list of the 15 best female villains.
Tyler, master of all lists, has come up with the 100 best films of the 70s. Geez, I probably haven't even seen ten films from the 70s.
Scott has the top apps for movie lovers. The only thing that's missing is MovieCat. Best. Trivia. App. Ever.
During the weekend it was Ryan's birthday, and a few days earlier he had a special birthday ep of The Matineecast for us. He shares some great sites - one of which was mine.
Nikhat asks the question that every girl around our age ponders over: The Critical Eye vs. Eye Candy?
Andy has recently passed 1000 posts (come on guys, he deserves the 'Most Prolific' award), but for post 999, he has a review of Prometheus up. I'm not excited for the movie at all (and I'll be one of the few who will wait for the DVD), but some of you may be interested.
Fogs has been getting right into the LAMMY spirit by picking apart the categories he is nominated in. He's nominated in 8 categories - that's extremely impressive!
Mette has a wonderful list of her favourite actresses - lots of Bollywood mixed in with lots of Hollywood. I like it.
Sati looks at the evolution of Snow White on screen. Which reminds me, I really need to catch up on Once Upon a Time (this is why I don't watch TV shows).
And since everyone's probably high on Prometheus (or high on the disappointment of Prometheus from what I've been hearing), here's another review from the awesome Lesya.
What fairytale character would you like to see get the 'gritty' treatment - a la Snow White and the Huntsman?
