I would love to write reviews (not exactly reviews, see it more like random ramblings that would make so little sense) for the things I watch but I'm so bad at it & I just end being totally biased but I might try, it would be a great way to actually make me write here & I don't know, do something xD but I'm a lazy ass when it comes to write so we'll see...
The Oscars... boring as ever even if it had a few good moments (the movies mix intro, the songs autotune, franco!girl and that's it, I think. )
I was happy with lead male, lead female & supporting male actor, best adapted script & best animated movie... everything else, I think I was just angry & very annoyed.
I loved the The Kings Speech but not to win all the stuff It did, but once again it shows that most of voters on the academy are a bunch of old people.
& don't get me started on the lack of Inception (yes, it had technical wins but nothing more). & hey! I told you that King's Speech would win for best picture...
but well, once again I had a great time in twitter
spamming meanwhile watching it
And the best part (aside Colin winning) was that in the red carpet I was focused on watching who was behind Annette Benning (and I truly love her xD) & I fangirled when I saw Simon ... LOL Btw, I've been thinking of making a post with his photos... is that weird? I have this tendency that when I fangirl a person I fangirl the whole package (partner, kids, parents if applicable, etc xDDD) Which explains why I never get the people who are jealous & want their idols to be single (actually , this people annoy the shit out of me XDD)
› Best movie.
Here I'm really torn between Black Swan, Inception,King's Speech & the Social Network (sincerely I would add Toy Story 3 but I doubt it will win best film & best animated film so I let it out)
If I have to pick one would be INCEPTION, but the academy sort of always ignore Nolan (see the best director nominations >.<) so I think KING'S SPEECH will win.
Also I would like to point out that I still have 3 left to see, The Kids are All Right (that I will see in a few hours, it opened on cinemas here yesterday), Winter Bones & The Fighter ( I'll download later the last two & i'll watch before tomorrow night xDD)
› Best Actor Leading Role
COLIN FIRTH :DDDDD I'm still annoyed that he didn't win for A Single man (film that I love) but he will win for this, his work on the King's Speech is beyond amazing (& he won everything else till now)
But hey, if the awesomeness of James Franco wins it, I'l be more than ok with it xD He did a great job in 127 hours & well, did I said that he is awesome? xD
› Best Actress Leading Role
› Best Actor in Supporting role
CHRISTIAN BALE . I didn't see the film yet but for what everybody said & taking in consideration he won everything else for this role... XD
› Best Actress in Supporting Role
I loved HAILEE STEINFELD in True Grit so I'm going with her. If not I can go with our queen Helena :D
› Best Director
Second option would be Aronfosky. He traumatized me with Requiem for A Dream & The Black Swan was great, specially the last minutes of the film.
› Best Original Screeplay
INCEPTION. Write something like this & make sense is an incredible feat xDDDD & I love that film & Nolan deserves at least this.
› Best adapted Screenplay
THE SOCIAL NETWORK. Once again I'm going to repeat myself, the best of this film is the script
› Best Animated Film
TOY STORY 3
I also would like to mention that I LOVED How to Train your Dragon, I really really liked it. But nothing can beat Toy Story 3, nothing.
› Best Original Score
Here I'm torn between Inception & The Social Network (maybe even 127 hours, maybe XD)
In previous awards Social Network won, probably will win here too but both films do an amazing job with the music.
I'll go with THE SOCIAL NETWORK (but my heart wants Inception to win xDD)
› Best Original Song.
Can I say the Tangled song because Zachary sings it? xDDDD ( & I really liked Tangled :D) But probably...
TOY STORY 3
& like always I'll be spamming twitter while I watch it :D
I had gifs [x x] & captures [x] of the golden globes of them but not this close :D
· I'm trying to watch The Tourist but I'm getting bored & sidetracked, I suppose it speaks about how good the film is xD But god, she is so pretty
· The last 18th January my White Collar 1º season dvdbox came :DDDD Funny enough it was the same day that the show was back on air :D (and with an amazing episode, btw xD)
· & BOSS has a second season :DD It's probably the 1º news from Japan in a long time that really made me excited. BOSS became one of my favorite jdramas & I (and probably most of us) was waiting for a second season and here it is and with the original cast :D
· Sort of related, lately people started to unfollow me on twitter because I don't fangirl like I used to (or at all) the Japanese fandom, I suppose it was a matter of time it happened. oh well, it's ok & understandable :) Ssurprised it didn't happen here already xD
· SKINS is back. I tried to know as little as possible about the new generation before watching it & so far, so good. I LOVE Franky. Yes, I know, I'm sure that people that know me is extremely surprised by this /Sarcasm xD What can I say? The only thing is that she isn't even 17 & I find her very pretty ~.~
· With or without background story, I still don't like Kate... *hides*
The Good Things
( Read more... )
And that's it for now, really tired and I probably forgot most of the stuff....
And really sorry for the people of twitter for my spam... no more till the Oscars XD
Now I wonder if you could recommend me lgbt books. I looked around (a.k.a. googled) & this seems to be a good place to start. From the first list I read 3 (The City and the Pillar by Gore Vidal, Confessions of a Mask by Yukio Mishima & A Single Man by Christopher Isherwood) but any personal recommendation would be appreciated. (And I know this won't have the response that the fantasy books had, if it has any at all xD, since it's something less popular)

› I watched 109 films the last year including films I watched for the first time & the ones I re-watched. Not bad taking in consideration that last year (it still sounds weird, I'm not fully in 2011 yet xD) was the year where I mostly saw tv shows.
From all the films I watched for the 1º time this year the ones that really stand out for me were Amelie, A Single Man, MOON, Memento, Toy Story 3, Inception, Mr Nobody, the Social network, Shortbus, Les amours imaginaires, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Rent & HOWL(doens't mean they were the only ones I liked, just the ones I loved the most)
Btw, for me The Social Network, Oscar for best script & Inception, Oscar to best direction & best film :D
And from all the stuff I watched there a few that I wish I didn't like for example Clash of Titans, which I watched mostly because Nicholas Hoult is on it & what a waste of 2 hours of my life...
But specially ANTICHRIST... please PLEASE!! take aways certain scenes from my brain ;______;
The full list of films (and tv shows) I watched is here, feel free to look & ask about any film on it.
› The last weeks I started to watch The Good Wife (
› I have so many un-replied comments, I'm truly sorry for that. Also I didn't check my flist properly during xmas, I also apologize for that,
› Anyway, one liners (twitter) or posting captures/pics (tumblr) is much easier than make a full entry and actually make sense, hence the reason I'm more active on those that here so we'll see if I can keep my new year resolution xDDD
I would love to be able to fly & time traveling.
Fly, being able to travel anywhere in the world on your own accord & not really worrying about plane tickets prices xDDDD & the freedom that flying can give me...
Time Traveling. If I can't have my own Doctor & travel in the Tardis I, at least, want to have Hiro power xD Imagine all the places you can visit, the past, the future... Lost civilizations & cultures...
Something that I would never want is immortality, although very tempting, the idea to be still alive while everybody else that I love dies is a big turn off xD
Also, another thing on my head since I started watching Doctor Who, if I could time travel, where I would love to go?
The first things that come to my mind would be:
· Ancient Egypt
· Ancient Greece.
· Medieval Ages.
· The 60s & 70s, the hippy, glam, punk periods (usa for the hippies, woodstock included, & UK/London for the rest).
· Concerts: QUEEN, THE DOORS, Janis Joplin and Bowie concert in the Ziggy era...
· Which super powers would you love to have? Would hate to have?
· If The Doctor appeared in your door, where would you ask him to take you on the TARDIS?
Taking in consideration how much I suck at any kind of craft, the TARDIS is looking better than I expected xDDD (I hope I can finish it on the next days)
& this was my desk after it xD
Anyway, before Japan fandom, before anything else, I was a fan of British music & films, something that never died & never stopped loving XD
But somehow I never watched Doctor Who (I still don't understand why ... xD) but finally not so long ago I decided to start watching it & for the photos above you can imagine the effect it had on me LOL xD
I was planning on a bigger entry, after all I didn't write here since ages ago but I have to leave (it's a friend's bday) so for now, this is all xD
oh!! did anybody do a handmade cookbook before? I need ideas... xD
· The other day checking the release sites I found Les amours imaginaries, the trailer caught my attention so I downloaded it. Yesterday finally subs appeared :)
And god, the film is beautiful. Not perfect, for example I felt like he abuses a little too much the slow-mo scenes which makes the film a bit slow, but when you see it, you forget about those things, because it's so beautifully filmed & the actors are great on it. I also really liked the 'in between' moments with the random people talking :)
( 150 captures, thumbnails )
♦ SPOILERS on the pic about SNAPE storyline of last book, didn't read the book? don't click . ok, then... OMG ♥ I still need to watch the social network (which I hope to do soon, btw) .
The other day tinyangl linked to Mark Reads Harry Potter blog & I can't be more thankful. It was just when I was in a middle of a Harry Potter films rewatching marathon & was thinking of read again the last book... Reading him is amazing. It's like reading the book for the 1º time & remembering all they made you feel :) Don't you have sometimes the wish of being able to read or watch something for the 1º time again, just to revive the original feeling? (btw, list of reviews http://bit.ly/MRHPlist )
& now about the last book. I normally re-read the books before the films & decided do the same this time. Oh man, this book is still so dark & it still made me cry so much :/ Btw, already finished it :) (& I think that my fave book is still the 3º :D)
Btw, yesterday new tv spots for the films were added to the youtube channel... here KALDKLAHDKAHDKHADLA! 1 month!
(I'm going to cry rivers with these films, specially with the 2º part xDD)
♦ I'm using '♦' because ALAHDLAHFKHASFKHAFKHASKFHA! KOYAMA! Koyama + Twitter = ♥ I already freaked out in twitter (not much because I was reading the last chapter of Harry & I knew about koyama just after I read the 'second painful death' moment... xD) If only all of them could have official accounts! (I mean, normal ones, not just the butai one XD) I know, I know.. Jweb, money blah blah blah, one can dream, no? xD
♦ Shun hair in Juui is so so so so painful to see ;__; http://twitpic.com/2yrx25/full I only skimmed a bit over the 1º ep, I'm waiting for subs but that hair... At least Nari look precious like always ♥
Reply and I'll give you four fandoms. You then have to make an entry writing about your favorite character from each fandom, and why.
jasj gave me... Cougar Town, Criminal Minds, Jactor, Kimi wa Petto & White Collar
( there is a high abuse of hearts xD )
→ I watch a lot of shows but there is 1 sole reason why I keep watching HELLCATS ...
( UNF ... UNF ... UNF... but those clothes? umm, they should go away :D (& by that I mean, he should always be naked on my screen) )
→ & TBBT is back (or it will be in a few hours XDD) meanwhile the whole cast (minus Kaley who has a broken leg) were in the Craig Ferguson show... I don't think I ever mentioned it here but I love this man, so craig + TBBT cast = double awesome.
I think that when I saw Jim & Ferguson together on the same frame my ovaries exploded... or something XD
( awesomess overload )
→ And sorry for captures with subtitles... reason for that is I need new pc speakers... I only can use videolan (since I can up the volume to 400% ) & I need subtitles because only one speaker works & unless I have subs I miss some phrases since I don't listen to them (damn you stereo!! xDD) Surreal, I know. I'll be buying new speakers next week, probably xD
→ I love Christinna Ricci since years ago, I don't even remember since when, maybe 10 years or so. But it pains me see her like this...
I really, really, REALLY, miss the Christina with more body, she looked better & hotter. (btw, from her appearance in Jimmy Fallon show some days ago)
→ Saw the latest Star Trek movie the other day & I was confused over the fact that Zachary Quinto looks good even with Spock look... But it might be just me being biased... (btw, one day of this I should finish Heroes, or something xDDD)
& geek related, thanks for the book recommendations. Tomorrow, probably, I'll go to buy one of those.
