Saw Lake House with Keanu and Sandra Bullock. Not a waste of my $7 but not anything I'd unequivocally recommend either. It dragged in way too many places and I was left with the familiar realization that Bollywood has ruined me for Hollywood's attempts at romance. It just that the two don't even compare. This said, I was dog-tired when I saw it, and even with all that Keanu was way too sexy (and when he sobs, his yum factor increases a hundred-fold), he and Sandra had great chemistry and I ended up sniffling a bit, like a pathetic girl that I am. Plus some scenes (the very last one, the one where they dance at a party, Sandra alone in a reslaurant etc) were lovely. So overall, fun, and I feel a Keanu picspam coming up. Plus, this movie is BEGGING for a Bolly remake (yes, I know it itself is a remake of Il Mare).

The Superman Returns trailer was wonderful. I can't say the same for some dreadful romcom with Jude Law and Kate Winslet. Will I see it? You bet.

The theater was pretty full for Monday, but there was only one man there :D

ETA: This has evoked a desire to rewatch The Matrix Trilogy. If I do so, expect a lot of pointless rambling, since those movies left me and Mr. Mousie talking for hours.

Compiling my Star Wars post made me think about the recent rusurgence of “Messiahs” in pop culture and how they are an interesting and dark and twisted take on the story: they all have motifs of being chosen or profesied, they have power or skills that is outside their control (and that they themselves did not ask for), there is temptation and eventual saving of the world and death (literal or figurative) but generally they are a much darker breed than the traditional Jesus figure.

Who am I talking about? Anakin, Neo, Frodo and Harry Potter. Welcome to the Jesus quartet.

Lengthy essay on Anakin, Neo, Frodo and Harry )

Oh.My.God. The icon expresses how I feel.

Who posts on FF.net? And are they locked up somewhere? I could spend hours lambasting the stories through their summaries (some you don't even need to read) but I bring you samples from various fandoms. Mind you,all these have been taken from the First page and I didn't include the author's names because I am nice.

Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Carribean

True Horrors lie beneath the cut )
