You know that makes me uncomfortable? You know what I live with everyday?
I can and will react and respond to behavior that not only...
I’m going to have to leave this child alone. She’s just not getting it and I don’t have the time for any more nonsense.
I love my dog. Remembering it was the 3rd anniversary of Bailey coming into our lives I watched him snoozing in the...
ugh this question is the worst! I’ve seriously been thinking about this question for a week now. Maybe that’s why I like the X-Men universe so much, because no one character (other than the obvious) stands out to me all that much (no matter how much Wolverine and Jean Grey and Cyclops are foisted upon me)?
I also feel pressured to pick a major character (and an actual mutant), and not like Broo or Doop from Wolverine and the X-Men.
That being said, I think it might be Ororo. I say “think” only because she hasn’t really played a big role in any of the X-Men books I’ve read, and Halle Berry was pretty terrible, lacking what I think is the essential fierceness and strength of the character. I suspect that there was a lot more missing, other than a mohawk, and I’m excited to learn more about her in Uncanny X-Force and Wolverine and the X-Men.
Or it may be Hank. I do love Hank, and the storyline in New X-Men when Cassandra Nova seriously fucks with him…so good. Yea, it’s probably Hank.

Julie: This was really excellent.
J: Woman fighting for ownership of her body, the harmful drive of acting and fame.
J: Polanski really knows how to make a disturbing movie.
Tim: Yep, though there’s this weird reaction against “hippy” stuff going on.
J: Yea, the organic in favor of the clean and sterile.
T: Satan shops at the farmers’ market.
This is a thing that Tim and I are working on - more film-specific conversations, hopefully insightful, hopefully funny, we’ll see. Let us know if you have suggestions!
Why did I ask for this, I don’t know how to answer these.
I don’t know that I’ve seen a lot of remakes, so I’ll say The Departed because it’s been on my mind lately, having recently watched Infernal Affairs (with you). As far as types of remakes go, I like it because it adds something to the film (Bostonized), and it isn’t just about doing what I think is a rather questionable practice of taking a foreign film and keeping everything pretty much the same except the foreign. The Departed has lots of things I love, including but not limited to Boston, Ray Winstone, the best Leo performance, Boston accents, Marky Mark, the best Baldwin, gangsters.
First favorite actor - this isn’t first actor crush, but something more. Like, when did I start becoming aware of film as a thing, acting as a craft…probably not until rather late. Honestly, and this is kinda weird, it probably wasn’t until I saw some more Brando roles that I really took note and was like, OK, acting is a real thing. It’s extremely easy for me to get caught up in stories, and the quality of performance is not actually really something that I was aware of affecting that involvement until way too late in life. Brando is probably not the right actual answer, but he’s the first I can identify.
Catinca in The Fall, obvs
I think that’s a stupid idea that I absolutely want to do. I miss your stupid face too.
One thing I’ve definitely learned that it’s not so much Titles as Writers/Artists that I love. Matt Fraction’s Hawkeye is awesome but I dunno that I would read it if it was by anyone else. Probably why I’m not so keen on reading any of the Xmen stuff
That’s true. I will check out anything that Frank Quitely draws. I seem to be a fan of Matt Fraction. I should go through older stuff based on creator, good idea. But I do really love certain characters, and for some reason I have always been drawn to X-Men. More X-Men! Plus I love Wednesdays and new comics =)
I want to go see Apocalypse Now with you so bad that my face just melted
I started to text that you should hop on a plane to Austin for Sunday night but then I didn’t send it because I didn’t want it to seem like I was gloating. Also, thanks for this reminder, buying tickets now =)
Are we talking things I could realistically pick up and carry with me as I run for my life? Or if I could somehow pick up any inanimate object in my apartment and take it with me?
Hm, as I was replying, I was going to put under “unrealistic” things like my TV and Le Creuset, big items that I am too cheap to buy again, but then I realized hey, that’s what insurance is for! So:
I may have a lot of objects, but apparently I am not very emotionally attached to them.
Uh… Life of Pi isn’t exactly “feel-good” in the way I think you think it is. At least if it is faithful to the spirit of the book.
It’s being released between Thanksgiving and Christmas. How is Hollywood not going to make it into a feel-good movie? =) No, I get what you’re saying, which is why I said what I said, which is what you had said as swinging me =P
Agreed. Also, “tradge”. As in, “I didn’t get to tell PTA about my feels when I saw him. Tradge.”
