Films I had never seen before until the month of July...
Howl's Moving Castle - There's not a lot that I can remember about this, apart from Emily Mortimer's voice. I really like that woman.
Higher Ground - I honestly don't think that this has rented once. Oh well, I should be glad that we at least got it.
My Week with Marilyn - I still don't get how Marilyn Monroe supposedly had a fling with someone as inexpressive as Eddie Redmayne was. He was such a bore.
This Means War - I admit to enjoying this. But I still can't process Tom Hardy being in this and The Dark Knight Rises in the same year.
Sleeping Beauty - The amount of people who have picked this up expecting it to be some porno...
We Need to Talk About Kevin - I really wish that earthquake didn't happen halfway through this. I'm so paranoid now.
Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope - So I sat down in the holidays and finally gave this a go. I liked it more than I thought I would. I should really get to the rest of the series.
Maid in Manhattan - What was Ralph Fiennes doing in this movie?
Grave of the Fireflies - Excuse me while I go and have a little cry over this...
The Girl who Leapt Through Time - Time-leaping would be very helpful right now.
50/50 - The first of my crazy movie night. I'm really pissed that my blu-ray version that I got off Amazon in February worked. I can't believe I had to wait until July to see it.
Like Crazy - My friend and I love Felicity Jones. She's so purdy.
J. Edgar - So much bad makeup! So little lighting! Ugh, to think this movie was on my wall of 'movies I want to see'.
The Skin I Live In - I can't believe I tricked my Dad into buying a foreign movie for the shop. Unfortunately, it didn't work for A Separation.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - When I watched it I really didn't like it. I think that was just an after effect of it being after 12am and having watched so many movies. Now I think that it was okay.
John Carter - It wasn't so bad.
Rebel without a Cause - The extent of my homework in the holidays. I had to watch this for a class.
Paprika - LOL wut?
Millennium Actress - I can't believe more people didn't recommend this during my anime month. It was awesome.
21 Jump Street - Watching this after having multiple injections numbing my mouth wasn't very wise. It made it too hard to laugh.
London Boulevard - I honestly can't remember any of this film.
Headhunters - Oh Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, you're so good-looking. This film was really entertaining.
The Decoy Bride - I wish my accent was like Kelly Macdonald's.
The Dark Knight Rises - Stuff you all, I freaking loved this movie.
Spirited Away - I wish I could have paid more attention to this.
Aliens - It was good, but it wasn't as good as Alien. I don't know whether I should venture into the rest of the series.
Rampart - Wait...what was this movie about?
The Big Year - Not funny enough to be a comedy, not dramatic enough to be a drama, but still pretty okay. What a cast, too.
Haywire - I was so disappointed by this film. It was so dull.
Wanderlust - This movie was refreshing. I don't know how, but I felt refreshed after seeing it.
The Sitter - I was in the mood for an R-rated comedy, but unfortunately this one didn't suffice.
Martha Marcy May Marlene - So different to what I was expecting. But so good.
Akira - It was very interesting...but I should probably see it again.
Earrings - Alex Withrow is now in my list of reasons why I want to become a director. I really liked his short film. You can watch it here.
Little Shop of Horrors (1986) - I finally saw the musical version. The ending was so happy. Our play looks so depressing. But still, it is going well.
The Lorax - I'll be finished it soon, so I guess we'll shove it on here.
Films I've already seen before but felt the need to see again because I'm cool like that...
The Artist - Watching this with my friends was the funniest thing ever. We made it into a story about a man's love for Subway and a (really immature) remake of Shame. Because we're cool like that.
Drive - Wow, a lot of people die in this movie.
Memento - I freaking love this movie, to the end of the Earth and back.
The Prestige - Writing an essay about the revenge theme in this film is seriously the hardest thing ever. And now I have to 'connect it to society'. I need to talk to Chris Nolan about it.
Following - Oh gosh, the Batman sticker in this. Chris Nolan knows.
Insomnia - I guess I was having a bit of a Chris Nolan marathon?
Batman Begins - Liam Neeson and Cillian Murphy were so unbelievably awesome in this film.
The Dark Knight - If I could do one thing before I die, it would be to see this on the big screen again.
We Need to Talk About Kevin - I mustered up the courage to watch this again so I could write an essay about the revenge theme in it (I'm so clever). While there was another earthquake, I appreciated it a whole lot more. And I'm so attracted to Ezra Miller in this film. It is so bad.
City Island - Yes, I rewatched this because it is the only Ezra Miller film I own. I loooooooooove him. And this movie is pretty cool, too.
Anyway, as you're all well aware, here comes the hour where I hang my blogging hat up and let it collect dust for a little while. Why? Because there's only so much this 16 year old can take. School is so busy that it has to spill into what little free time I have left, and that free time is taken up by the blog. Which doesn't leave me to do many normal things. And for once, I want to do normal things. So I'm taking a little while off to catch my breath. And once I feel that I've done that, I'll pick up my dusty blogging hat. Therefore, I can't tell you exactly how long I'll be, but I can at least promise you that it won't be terribly long before I start feeling a bit empty. Sorry for the melodramatics - but that's how I'm feeling at the moment.
So to close out this moment, I leave you with this rather appropriate song. See you later, and thanks for being so good to me in this past year!
