The poll has spoken and since Jensen Ackles
is the winner, expect Jensen spam some time this week. I must admit that I will be doing a picspam of all these gentlemen because hey, someone voted for them (except for poor Tom Welling. I guess WB angst and deer eyes only get you so far) and because they are hot. Escpecially Olivier Martinez, because I've never done a picspam of him and he was to die for in Horseman on the Roof
(one of the coolest love stories I've seen, and there wasn't even any kissing).
I went to see Fanaa
for a third time last night. Siiiiigh. So good. The theater was full, even on a Sunday night. Still wonderful. There really is nothing like watching Bollywood on big screen. And I cried (again) and that moment of Kajol letting go and spinning during 'Des Rangila' still makes me giddy with joy, and I have a new favorite moment: when Kajol and Aamir are bathing Rehan Jr and Kajol goes 'Rehan, look up' (to her son) and Aamir looks up. Guuuuuh. It just gets to me. And his in her lap at the end is seriously sob sob sob territory. To complete the wonderfulness, after the movie I asked the theater person if I could buy one of the movie posters (being a polite girl) and he was so nice. He told me I didn't need to buy and asked me which movie and gave me a huge, gorgeous poster with Kajol and Aamir's faces on top and that bit with him in her lap in the snow (from the part of MHM that wasn't in the movie) and I love it. Thank you, lovely person! There were Krrish
posters everywhere and the movie looks soooo deliciously tacky. Oh Hrithik. Why can't you make ONE good movie where I can enjoy the flick AND you at the same time, and keep my self-respect?
And thinking of Fanaa
, I decided to rewatch the 'Suraj Hua Maddam' number from Kabhi Khushi Kabie Gham
to see if 'Mere Haath Mein' from Fanaa replaced it as a favorite. It was a close thing, but no. Nothing is as surreally beautiful as SHM. Still, like that other contender, 'Roshni Se' from Asoka, MSM came close but didn't win. So here is the youtube video of this song. Do check it out! The first minute or so is actually not the song but the moments in the movie that lead to it. Basically, the really short synopsis is that he is the eldest son of a really rich, proper, proud family. She is a madcap girl who is from a very poor area. Completely ineligible, in short. Not to mention his family is about to finalize his engagement with an entirely suitable girl. But they are OTP and he defies his family and marries her even when he gets disowned. And that's only the first half of the movie! But anyhow, this is right when they discover they are in love with each other. Pyramids, colors, and passion
Also, being tired in the morning, and needing a shot of wangst to get me up and moving, I rewatched the ending og Meteor Garden
, the part where they both go on a hunger strike, and the evil mother lets them talk but only through a door so they can't see each other and he tells her he misses her and there are tears. Heeeee. It's the perfect thing I needed: being angsty, resulting in a HEA, and also full of cheese. Actually, since HYD anime had a similar storybit (evil Mom locks up and restrains Our Hero so as to force him into marriage), I am wondering if it was in the manga (please say it was!) Though I can't see how it would have gotten resolved there, because manga went on for volumes and volumes after that so it's not as if Mommy Dearest gave up. Also, I am amused by the fact that he's been on a hunger strike for days but the girl is doing it for less than a day, but she is almost as ill as he is. He doesn't look like he has fat deposits though :P
I am also reading Autumn Bridge
, by Takashi Matsuoka, which isn't bad, is set in 19th century Japan, but is unfortunately a sequel to a previous book, with same characters and all, a fact which would have been useful to have on the cover. And being lured by the evil of Netflix, I've netflixed Felicity
, Dawson's Creek
and second season of cracktasticness that is One Tree Hill
. And has anyone watched The Lake House
with keanu and Sandra Bullock? Is it worth $10 and two hours of my time?
And last, but not least, a gazillion Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
came out over the weekend. It looks TO DIE FOR and I can't wait for the movie. I am sure most of you have already seen the stills, but nevertheless, here they are.
And now I melt into a puddle of goo:( The rest of gorgeous angsty goodness )
