That I have bad taste. This is two memes I did at around 4 this morning because I was bored. Mucho sorry.


But hey, it's gotz moovies! )

verbal_kint: (Default)
As some of you may know BECAUSE I REALLY LIKE TO COMPLAIN, I'm having a bit of a tough time writing...anything (but fricken poetry) as of late. Therefore, I'm brutally stealing this meme from [personal profile] topaz_eyes to see if I can get any sort of ideas...because ideas lead to...other things! Yay?

Give me the title of a story I've never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got posted, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I'd been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.

Feel free to try any fandom you have reason to think I know, but if I don't at all know the fandom I'll have to say so.



Also, as this year gets more and more stressful, I'm guessing I'll be on lj less and less. But, if you want to keep in contact with me for some odd reason, you can friend me on Facebook.

I'm actually much more fun on Facebook. Not sure why that is, really.

Stolen from [profile] magie_05 . Mwahaha.

10. Ghostbusters--The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. The look on Dan Aykroyd's face when he says, "I tried to think of something that could never ever hurt us" coupled with the image of a hundred foot tall angry marshmallow destroying New York City is ten degrees of perfect. My brother can also do a spot on impression of said marshmallow man, because he has no life.

9. Audition--The Burlap Sack.
The fucked-upness of this movie is, um, surprising? There's a scene right after this nice Japanese girl auditions for a part where it cuts to her waiting for a phone call. She's presumably been there for quite a while, and it's just...ugh...so creepy. The camera focuses on a burlap sack by her feet for at least 30 seconds, and right when you think there's nothing in it, it moves.

8. Edward Scissorhands--Hold Me.
The awful thing about this movie is that it's billed as a comedy, but there's a point about 3/4ths into the movie where it gets dark and things just never go back to being okay. Maybe not the best scene on this list, but The Hug Heard Around the World is guaranteed to get me crying.

7. Shawshank Redemption--Brooks Was Here.
Another tearjerker. I picked this because I think it offered the general public insight into the prison life mentality that had never been portrayed on film before (or if it had, I doubt it was as incredibly moving). But when Brooks refers to Shawshank as "home" and writes, "I don't like it here. I'm tired of being afraid all the time, so I've decided not to stay" everyone immediately gets it, and for that to be accomplished with such little fuss just amazes me.

6. The Libertine--Do You Like Me Now?
Not everyone's favorite movie, I realize, but it gets to me in sort of a...competitive way? In his opening monologue, Wilmot calmly explains that you will not like him. In fact, you will hate him. And while watching I thought, "Okay, that's cool. Good to know." But then the movie goes on, and you start to sort of like him more as he likes himself less and it's actually nerve-racking as an audience member. You assume you're doing something wrong.Then he dies and we're back to the monologue, where he asks, "Do you like me now?" Shit, John Wilmot, I do. Damn you.

5. Resevoir Dogs--Stuck in the Middle with You.
The ear scene. Nuff said. I think the worse part is that you don't see it.

4. The Fountain--Shibalba.
The last scene, where Tom, Tommy, and Thomas all make it to where they're going is probably the most beautiful thing I've seen on film.

3. Pan's Labyrinth--A Princess
Another absolutely gorgeous scene, which is, at the same time, terrifying. The clash of real world horror with fairy tale is as sick as it is enlightening.

2. Seven--What's in the Box?
Oh God, the last ten minutes of this movie are just genius. The dialogue is so tight you feel the need to yell "Oh snap" after every verbal exchange. The twist is awful and brilliant. John Doe is relatable, and worse, the audience has been on his sick ride for the entire film and by this point, there's this part of you that wants him to succeed. And of course, Morgan Freeman's thoughts on the Hemingway quote at the end put the nail in the coffin of anything good. Afterwards, you want to take a bath. Pure genius.

1. The Usual Suspects--The Real Keyser Soze.
I'm obviously biased, as this is my favorite movie...but yeah, the ending is a hard bitch slap across the face. I even jokingly predicted the ending when I first saw it, but still. OMG.

Gotta get to bed now. School tomorrow. *Pukes.*

Sorry to spam the ol' F-list with my boredom/whoreism, but I'm just kinda lame like that.


Oh noes! Life! )
verbal_kint: (Default)
Jumping on the bandwagon, here. Go me.

Ask to me to take a picture of any aspect of my life (rooms, pets, DVD collections, views, cars, WHATEVER), and, by golly, I'll do it. And I'll post it.

In other news, Taken has reminded me why I love Liam Neeson, but also why I feel there needs to be a throwaway line in every movie that he's in concerning his accent, because if he thinks he's doing American, he's got nobody fooled.

In other other news, I fell asleep for fifteen minutes during Doubt...but somehow, I know I didn't miss anything. Also, I NEED Amy Adams to be my best friend!

In other other other news, I completely believe that if there were an episode of House set 30 years in the future in which House lost the limp and gained a gun, it would be called Gran Torino. And to be completely insensitive, I found the actress who played Sue to be so annoying, that I would've beaten her up myself. Seriously, not even Clint's acting could make that relationship believable. Also, Clint's singing at the end kinda creeped me out. So I was crying, and then I was crying harder because I was a little freaked.

Yeah, but I'm actually really excited about the photo meme because I just got a new camera! So make me use it, please!
