I finally managed to catch up with my TV for this season backlog and watched 3.1 of Supernatural: ‘In my time of dying.’

Wow. So good. I am in love with this show. I still want to finally watch an ep of it on TV and not on youtube, so I guess it means I’ll have to catch up with 3.2 and 3.3 before Thursday. Ahhh, the hardship.

And SPN continues to own me. Not as much as BSG, but certainly more than Veronica Mars lately. I guess I like my angst with a side of angst.

Thoughts on IMTOD )

Also saw The Departed last night. A good movie and I can pretend it’s some bizarre fanfic AU of Internal Affairs. I still prefer the fluid grace and the gorgeous restraint and understatement of IA. I was amused at the changed ending. I guess IA was too bleak even for Scorcese. I am curious if Matt Damon will suffer from the ‘Andy Lau curse’ in my eyes. Ever since IA, I’ve never been able to watch AL in anything without remembering him in IA and my hate for that character sort of spilled over into every other character he played, however innocuous. No one destroys Tony Leung’s life without paying for it :P Since I don’t remember last time Damon played a woobie since Good Will Hunting that’s probably not a problem (ooooh, now I am remembering self and BFF crushing a bit on Damon in college as a result of GWH. I feel old).

Trailers were a mixed bunch. There was some kind of documentary on Dixie Chicks and how people wouldn’t buy their stuff after their Bush remarks. Whatever one’s feelings on Bush, the documentary is made for eye rolling. Seriously. Cry me a river. Of beer. Flags of Our Fathers looks good in itself, but the voice over seems sappy and preachy and cringe-worthy and reminds me of Cinderella Man which was the biggest bunch of sentimental tripe in forever. Blood Diamond looked really cool (speaking of Leonardo), and seems a movie right after my own heart, what with desperate action, and shady cynical adventurers rediscovering their inner decency, and beautiful people falling for each other, and a bit of bleeding-heart liberalism. Yum. It’s the director of Last Samurai (which I loved and am not afraid to admit it), so it seems his niche is having white men rediscover their soul in exotic locations. I am all for it, if the men in question are hot. And then there was 300 which is about the Battle of Thermopylae in a fantasy AU. On speed. It looks completely ahistorical, and yet I am so there. I mean, come on. Gerard Butler. David Wenham. Great graphics, Bloody battles. FRELLING SPARTANS! I am there opening day.

My doramas stack is getting away from me. I still need to catch up on eps 13 and 14 of Tokyo Juliet and 6(!!!) eps of Smiling Pasta. Not to mention all the Silence eps. And I am still watching Sang-Doo and Kamisama Mou Sukoshi Dake. And in doramas not in progress, I plan to start Kurosagi ASAP. But hey, because I am totally rational, I am also going to start Tatta Hitotsu no Koi. I usually don’t start watching doramas when only one ep is out, but then [livejournal.com profile] winterspel posted some pics. And I want to see Kame in a dorama to see what the fuss is about. And most importantly, it’s an angsty, possibly doomed, star-crossed lovers love story. I mean, come on! I am there. It’s the poor guy rich girl thing that is the staple of Bollywood and doramas. Let’s see if anyone develops amnesia.

Seriously, you have to check it out. I stole some caps from [livejournal.com profile] winterspel to entice (don’t worry saved on my own server). She has a whole cornucopia of them here and here.

come see the preeeeeeeety )

Hmmm, shall I be converted to The Dark Side KAT-TUN? Pardon me, KT-TUN? Naaaaaah, but the doramas are LOVE. I would totally lock Kame up in my basement. But I don’t have one. And Mr. Mousie might not like it. Still, how can I resist? He is prettier than I am. Probably weighs less, too, which is sort of scary, because I think I am attracted to a guy I could fit into my carry-on.
