J2 shippers, if you're looking for a new camera, look no further :DD

A couple of questions regarding Skyfall.

1. Skyfall's groundskeeper, Kincade, he doesn't speak with a Scottish accent so I presume he's not actually Scottish?

2. Is Silva a British citizen? His name and his accent indicates that he's not, but if he's not British, could he become a secret service agent under the British government?

Watched The Walking Dead last night and time simply flew and before I knew it, the show was over when the credits rolled. It felt like only 15 minutes had passed, not 40, that's how good the show was. Don't you feel like that when you're watching a really good show?

The Amazing Race: Moscow - another fun episode. The funnest was when they had to do the synchronized swimming along with the Russia olympic team, the guys omg, esp the Nelson twins lookalikes ( or how I imagine the twins look like at the age of fifty, I haven't looked up their current pics as I want them to remain as they were in my head ). As good as the Bollywood dance during last season!

SPN 805: Blood Brothers - that was a good episode but then I don't expect anything less from Ben Edlund. Though it did feel like there were two stories, spinoffs!, going on - Sam's curtainfic and Dean hunting-with-other-people story. I'm warming up to Benny now. Didn't quite like him before because I wanted ( still do! ) him to be Castiel. Speaking of, I'm dreading the day Cas is killed off, for good this time. Not a spoiler, just me thinking the worst, so that I'd be prepared. Unlike that time when they chopped off Ned Stark's head which was a total shock. Not good for the system, that, not good at all.

Revenge - I'm dreading the end. I really do. But in a good way. And I went all fuzzy and squishy and melty-heart when Nolan said that Ems was his only friend and family. Awwwwwwwww ...

And also, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, MARTIN FREEMAN omg! That guy was so good that I didn't see any single hint of John Watson there. I can't wait for The Hobbit!

James Patrick Stuart was in Bones 8x05! It was good to see Dick Roman sans sharp teeth, and I thought it funny when Booth said he was a monster and he kept repeating I'm not a monster! Fun episode, love it when Brennan danced.

I like SPN 5x04 Bitten. But then I like Cloverfield and Blairwitch, so no surprise there. Sam ate salad again. But he probably does have his protein and carb I guess? To maintain all those muscles?

Survivor - it just occured to me that Malcolm looked a lot like Orlando Bloom. Hey [livejournal.com profile] claudia603, you're still in it ;P, with Orlando Bloom as your closest ally!

The Amazing Race: Turkey - that was a very pretty episode. Love it when the first clue said Welcome to Europe, now go back to Asia. Such a lovely country, I want to go there someday.

Saw James Bond Skyfall and I enjoyed it very much - much more than the previous Craig!Bond movies. Maybe it's because then I kept comparing Bond to Bourne ( Bourne won of course ) and this year there was only that Bourne Legacy to compare it to and this time, Bond won, big time.

Anyone here have seen George Clooney's The Men Who Stare At Goats? That was HILARIOUS. What I like most about it is how serious everyone was that you could almost forget that it was actually a comedy.

Elementary: I was curious on what Johnny Lee Miller's take on Sherlock would be like and I ended up being more intrigued by Lucy Liu's Watson instead. You can't help but compare Sherlock to the many, many Sherlocks before him, notably Benedict Cumberbatch's ( but of course! ), but Lucy Liu's female version of Watson is the first in a long line of illustrious John Watsons. I thought the pilot was rather boring and Sherlock's OTT manic is a bit too much for me but I'll give it another chance, just to see what Lucy Liu would/could do with her character.

Revolution: It's Kripke's so I just *had* to watch it. It was alright I guess. I'm not bouncing with excitement or anything but I like it well enough to continue watching. Miles, not Charlie, is very much Dean to me and it's good to see names associated with SPN from its good old days. Read more... )

Looper the movie: I went to see this mostly to watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt play the young Bruce Willis and kudos to him, he was good. He got all of Bruce Willis mannerisms and quirks and face expressions down pat! The most exciting part for me was when spoilers )

I'm now contemplating watching Arrow and The New Normal. Anyone here watching/planning to watch those two shows?

The Descendents - enjoyed that movie very, very much. Heh, and I was with the daughter when they first saw Brian Speer. The wife cheated on GEORGE CLOONEY with him???!!?? Lol I kept expecting him to call out for Scooby.

One thing that Matt King said in the movie that I can't keep out of my head - I gave enough money to my children for them to do something but not enough for them to do nothing.. Huh, very profound, that.

And [livejournal.com profile] munibunny, you live THERE??????

/is jealous.

:D

Saw Suits season 2 finale last night. Omg this show is soooo fantastically GOOD I just want to roll around in it. Excellent dialogues, wonderful acting, brilliant everything. Go watch it if you hadn't already!

Pity there're only 10 eps per season but season 3 will be in January so that's not too long to wait.

Still not slashing them. No, no, no. But it's close. Very close. Hmmmm, I wonder why I'm having a bit of a problem slashing them. Maybe because Harvey's in a position of authority with that mentor-protege thing going on. Or maybe it's because I just want Harvey for myself. Yes, I think that's it. Such a complicated, amazing character with so many sides to him. I just ADORE that man.

Tess looked a lot like Donna that I initially thought she was Donna. Pity about ... )

Thoroughly enjoyed Fringe season 3 finale. I had some mild trepidation about it at first after the second last episode because I thought that Peter was thrown into the other universe. But Read more... )

I can't believe that the show will be ending soon? Seriously, season 5 will be the last season? Unless they screwed up S4 really, really badly, I want the show to go on forever!

Also, I watched Bourne Legacy a while back. I wouldn't have watched it at all if Jeremy Renner were replacing Matt Damon as Bourne lol. As it was, I couldn't help but compare Aaron to Bourne. On its own, I guess it was alright. I lovelovelove Ed Norton, and Rachel Weisz and Jeremy Renner were good. But compared to the original Bourne trilogy, it fell way, way, way short. Heh, I guess they couldn't make Aaron cut and dye Dr Marta's hair, eh, despite her desperately needing some sort of disguise because even with the glasses, she screamed I'm Dr Marta Shearing, apprehend me!

Matt Damon, I need you back as Jason Bourne!

My computer is driving me nuts with its rattling sound ( death rattle? ). I really, really must send it to the repair shop but I still need it to download Suits 103. Maybe tomorrow. So if you don't see me around it's because I don't have my computer with me. Hopefully not for long though.

Anyone here has seen Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures? Oh gosh, that scene where ... )

Saw the first episode of Dallas 2012 last night. I was actually prepared to not like it, because you know, I loved the original Dallas so very, very much. And also because Pam Ewing isn't in it and Bobby has a new wife *cries* but despite all that, I liked it, and yes, I want to watch the rest of it now. And it's good to see Delilah from The Faculty in it. I kind of like Elana even though she's nowhere as pretty as Rebecca. And omg, the twists and turns of it. I like!

Happy weekend everybody!

Watched Wilfred season 2 premier last night and I was struck by how similar Jenna was to Jenny from Suits. What do you think?

PhotobucketPhotobucket

I actually thought they were the same actress until I googled them up. Lol, and now I can't tell which one was Jenna and which one was Jenny from the pics above.

Speaking of Suits, 2x02 was another great episode. Gosh, I'm so in love with this show right now. Though I have to say that Mike's little triangle is a bit irritating, though not enough to spoil the show for me since Harvey and Donna and Jessica and Mike, even Louis, more than made up for the Rachel/Mike/Jenny kerfuffle.

Harvey reminds me a LOT of Jensen ( another Jen lol ) from It's A Terrible Life. Dean Smith would fit right into Harvey's world, all expensive dark suits and slicked back hair. Oh, if only Jensen would guest-star in an episode. I'll take him as anything, even a smarmy lawyer ala Louis, but preferably as Harvey's old buddy maybe? *dreams ...*

Also, did anyone else here see the movie Prometheus? I love it.

Someone should make a movie in which Jason Bourne, James Bond and Jack Bauer ( ha, they all have the same initials ) save the world together, with Sherlock Holmes thrown in for good measure.

In other words, I LOVE The Avengers. Love it so much that I can't wait to see it again. random squees )

SPN 7x17:

He kept it omg he kept It. ( I always knew that he would. )

Scruffy!Sam looked good. And I thought Jared did well there.

Saw Hunger Games over the weekend. Hubby asked whether it was any better than Twilight. As far as the books were concerned, I couldn't say since I've read neither, but movie-wise, the Hunger Games wins, hands down. Read more... )
layne67: (bc lying down)
Sort of. Though the half-naked beachcomber was nothing like Lord Grantham, and the sickly James was a far, far cry from Sherlock. But it was good to see them together. Not nearly as good as Benedict Cumberbatch guest-starring in Downton Abbey of course - I WANTSSSSS!!! - but almost.

I loved The Third Star very much. But then, what's not to love? Four good friends on a walking trip together, one of them dying of cancer. Very much up my alley where angst and bromance are concerned, and it has BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH!!

Saw Fringe season 2 finale last night and oh boy, what a thrilling ride that was. I was on the edge of my seat pretty much most of the time, cried here and there especially when Read more... )

Saw New Year's Eve and I thoroughly enjoyed it, despite its poor rating ( which I found out after I watched the movie ). Loved all the Jensens in it ( Jensen this and Jensen that lol ), and omg I didn't know Ingrid was actually Michelle Peiffer until later. And Josh Duhamel! That was the first time I saw him in anything.

I think I've a new-found love for movies of this sort, you know, stories ala Love Actually ( a HUGE favourite! ) which are made up of several vignettes loosely intertwined, stories that leave you guessing on how the characters connect to each other, the epitome of chick-flicks, but chick-flicks or not, hubby and the boys loved that movie, too. Ahaha, and apparently the boys had seen Valentine's Day as well, which I haven't seen yet. And I need to find Paris, Je T'Aime, the sister movie to New York, I Love You.

Really enjoyed the last episode of The Amazing Race. Body-building omg rofl. Now I wish that the father and son team hasn't been eliminated yet. What I wouldn't give to see sweet Zac in that little ... thing. And wasn't Ernie such a patient, good man? I have yet to see him raise his voice. Lucky Cindy.

Ozzy! I really can't see him winning the million but I'm so rooting for him now, I didn't before, but now I just want him to win so very badly. And when he stood on top of that coconut tree ::HEART-DROPS:: How on earth was that even possible????

And the next day when we watched James Franco's The Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Caesar was standing on top of that tree, we were like (((((( OZZY ))))))

Anyone here has watched that movie? I didn't enjoy Wahlberg's Apes so I wasn't expecting much with this, but oh my, what a pleasant surprise! I thought it was good from the get go. Eeeeep, Caesar was totally eerie when he went through his transformation, his eyes. And I was thinking that this movie would have been awesome as the prequel to the original 1968 Planet of the Apes.
layne67: (DA sybil)
Saw Johnny English Reborn over the weekend. Totally silly, I absolutely enjoyed it. I probably wouldn't have watched it if not the kids being Mr Bean's fans. And Gillian Anderson! With a British accent!! I adore that woman.

I got goosebumps watching Downton Abbey series 2 premier, it was *that* good. Especially when Matthew and Mary came up on screen. Those two would be the death of me one of these days. Luckily I had been accidentally spoiled for that bit on them so I was braced for it but it was actually good, despite spoilers )

Suits!! The pilot had me going Huh? a few times ( not the good kind ) but the second episode totally got me, hook, line and sinker. I'm so glad that I watched the second episode because it was really, really good I'm so going to watch the rest of the show. Yup, totally my new happy place, that *dances*

Charlie's Angels. I watched that more out of curiosity and nostalgia for the original ( the TV show, not the movie ) and ... I probably won't be watching it anymore. Well, maybe one more episode in case it gets any better, and also because I very much approve of Bosley, the only person I like in the show.

And I need to watch another episode of Person Of Interest. NOT in the same category as Charlie's Angels of course, it's so much, much better but I wasn't really squeeing about it. Hopefully I'll like the second episode better.

Fringe!! I lovelovelove it. Just finished 1x04 and I'm dying to watch season 4 premier but that's probably not a good idea, eh? And oh, didn't Olivia looked simply beautiful when she presented the Emmy award with Booth? I did wish Booth was with Bones, but Booth with Olivia was great, too!

Tonight : The Amazing Race season premier, Downton Abbey 2x02 and hopefully I'll have time for CSI:NY premier as well. And congratulations to my favouritest reality show ever for winning that Emmy award for the umpteenth time, you totally deserved it!

I enjoyed the book Children of Men very much. Didn't like the character Julian very much but I still love the book. And now I find myself wishing that I had seen the movie. So many amazing, macabre scenes from the book which I wonder how they looked like translated into the big screen - tha dance of the Painted Faces for one, the Quietus, Julian in labour, Miriam when Theo found her at the end ...

And it was directed by Alfonso CuarĂ³n! Read more... )

I'm re-reading this now.

Smaug certainly looked fast asleep, when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance. He was just about to step out on to the floor when he caught a sudden thin and piercing red fom under the drooping lid of Smaug's left eye. He was only pretending to sleep! He was watching the tunnel entrance ... ( Oh my, I could already hear the rich timbre of Benedict Cumberbatch's voice in my head!! )Read more... )

I saw Deathly Hallows during the weekend which I lovedlovedloved.

Enjoyed it tremendously despite being on the second front row seats. I have to say that I'm a bit surprised by that ( me enjoying the movie that is, not me being right below the screen craning my neck up for two hours ), mainly because other than Prisoner of Azkaban, which I loved very, very much, I didn't quite enjoy the rest ( my profuse apologies to the Harry Potter fans on my flist ).

I cried at the end when Read more... )

I've just finished watching the 1957 Agatha Christie's Witness For The Prosecution. Loved it. I don't remember watching the movie before but I was hit by this deja-vu feeling, that I had seen it and I knew exactly how it was going to turn out ( and I was right! ). I thought the movie was made from her stage-play and I know with certainty that I've never seen any of AC's plays before.

It turned out that it was originally a short story from her Hound of Death collection which I had read. Haha, and I thought that I was so well-versed with her stories that not only had I guessed the conclusion of the story correctly but had also accurately guessed how the story was going to play out lol.

Anyway, googling the movie up, I wasn't surprised to see that it had several nominations for that year's Oscar including Charles Laughton who played Sir Wilfrid. I thought he was the best thing in the movie!

Coming up next - Murder Is Easy. I was planning to watch The Murder of Roger Ackroyd first but I just found out that BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH was in it OMGOMG be still my heart!! I love Agatha Christie and I adore Benedict Cumberbatch ( at least, I adore Sherlock, I haven't seen the actor in anything else. Yet. ) and Murder Is Easy is one of my favourite AC's. I'm a happy girl.

Also, I've just found out that Emily Blunt was in Death In The Nile! I've seen the Peter Ustinov's one but not the Suchet's version yet. I'm so looking forward to watching that and Emily Blunt even though I don't remember Lynnet Doyle being one of my favourite characters from the book. And David Soul ( HUTCH!! ) was in it too. I'm a happy girl.

So much heartache in this movie. Read more... )

I've quite forgotten that Josh Hartnett was in the movie so that was a sweet surprise. He was so adorably young then, and such cute hair! It was rather amusing to see the actor playing older Trip who didn't look anything like Josh Hartnett now.

These pretties are for [livejournal.com profile] honeyandvinegar. Just because.

I absolutely adore The Tourist! As is my wont, I went to see without knowing much about it other than it starred Angeline Jolie and Johnny Depp, and I had this vague idea that it might be a spy thriller but that could be because I still had Salt in my mind. So it was such a sweet, sweet surprise to see Paul Bettany in it. He was so adorable!

Love the movie. I love Jolie, I love Depp and I love the whole cloak-and-dagger stuff. I was initially slightly taken aback to see Depp, I didn't quite expect to see him looking quite like that, I almost didn't recognize him! And you know how Jolie's mere presence would shadow the other characters, that woman is so ... dominating and with Depp looking so washed out, you'd expect him to just disappear under Jolie's strong everything. But he didn't.

Johnny Depp is one of the few A-list actors that doesn't scream Johnny Depp with whatever characters he played on screen. You know, the way, say, Tom Cruise said Tom Cruise! or de Caprio said de Caprio! ( to me I mean, my apologies to fans of both actors ).

And the movie kept me guessing right to the very end. spoilers )

A very enjoyable movie with all round great acting, and I love the European setting. Very romantic!

I saw Gulliver's Travels last weekend. It was an extremely enjoyable one and a half hour, I laughed my head off the whole time. Yay for slapsticks!! And I love Emily Blunt in it. So cute! I've never heard of her before The Wolfman but now she seems to be everywhere. Not that I'm complaining of course, I'm so fangirling her now, along with Olivia Wilde. Cant wait to see her in Wild Target and Empire ( thanks [livejournal.com profile] ckll! ). And when oh when can I see her in The Adjustment Bureau?? Emily Blunt and Matt Damon *dies*

Speaking of Matt Damon. I watched The Bourne Supremacy and a few eps of 24 season 6 on the same day. And it got me thinking, long and deep ( lol ) on who would win if one were asked to take the other down. Hubby said Bourne and I agreed. But if they were working together and someone needed to be in charge, we thought that Bourne would be the one following orders.

If you knew both guys, what do *you* think?
