So! I saw The Adventures of Tintin and I just… the animation and 3-D is so crisp and defined. This was the first 3-D movie that I have not felt dizzy at in a while. All I have to say about the entire movie is that I need to re-read the books and that I just about died from cute. You can tell that a lot of love was put into this movie and guys: It reads like the comics do. Some-parts I had forgotten and I loved watching Captain Haddock re-enact Sir Francis Haddocks’ fight with Red Rackham. Aaah. And the crane-fight at the end was perfect. And Tintin I just…everything. Also, Snowy totally stole the show. I mean, come on how can you not drift over to watch his antics. Everything about this movie makes me want to re-read the books.
Only criticism is that many of the kids and adults in the theater were a bit bored by the lengthy opening credits.It was also a major-spoiler (why would they do that?) of the plot. I’ll admit that it could have been cut down to be shorter/put to the end-credits instead.
“I guess I could go on all day about what you don’t have/
But that’s only a part of the point I wanna make.
My mom and dad are with me on Christmas every year/
And yours are decomposing in their graves.”—'Christmas with my Mom and Dad' by Draco and the Malfoys
There comes a point for me every single night where my entire family is in bed and all the lights are out and the tiny, stupid, reptile part of my brain manages to convince the rest of my otherwise logical self that there are horrible evil things out in the hallway waiting for me to leave my room…
All the time. All the time. And sometimes… it’s my own cat that scares me. Unreasonable-lizard-imagination needs to stop thinking. D: And eating.
Ah, seriously it’s not Christmas without my Jingle Spells album. OH SUCH FUN. I love the Remus Lupins…. and the Ministry of Magic songs on this album. Such a fun album and aaaah. My HP-love is showing isn’t it?
There are two bare nails on my bathroom walls. Every time I see one in the mirror or in my peripheral vision, I mistake it for a spider and freak out. I need something artsy to put there and stop the madness. Seriously, I’m this close to sticking the map that came with my copy of Skyrim in a frame…
Same issue with the textured walls here. There are some that throw a spider-shaped shadow. Every-time I see one… heart-attack. D: Put up the Skyrim poster. <3
the TARDIS’ telepathic field (the one that translates all the languages for the Doctor and his companions) breaks down somehow and the Doctor only realizes this happened when Amy points it out for him, “What…did you just say? What language was that? Doctor?”
And he realizes he’s speaking in Gallifreyan
so then he has to consciously switch to English,
and he has an accent
and Matt Smith spends the whole episode sounding like a Russian lit professor
THIS. I want this. Please Santa Moff. Someday just…. do it for us.
I suffered a cold for two weeks and today I had a wonderful dream, had a nice visit from my nephew, played video games and had pizza. I got a lovely christmas card in the mail from my pal, Weaver. Now I am chillin’ like a villain, RPing, and letting my mp3 player just go on shuffle. I’ve had three favorite songs in a row.
Fuck yeah I earned today.
All the warm-fuzzies. I hope you liked it and I seriously wanted just… a lumpy burrito-Snowball. :D Hooray for a happy day of goodness and video-games and pizza. <3
