Writer's Block: The tenth time's the charm

What movie have you seen the most times in your life? How many times have you seen it? Will you ever grow tired of it?


Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey are both so amazing in it. I love the script; Charlie Kaufman is one of my favourite writers ever. It's very deep and complex and heartbreaking and emotional and funny... it's got a bit of everything. It's sciencey enough so even the sci-fi geeks will be interested, and it's got just the right amount of romance in it - not the syrupy sweetness of The Notebook and not the ridiculous drippiness of Bella and Edward. Joel and Clementine are two very flawed and realistic human beings trying to make a relationship work over and over again.

Kate Winslet is also my favourite actress and basically one of the most amazing people to ever grace this planet and I think she should have been awarded for playing Clementine, who is probably the best character on screen she's ever portrayed (after Juliet Hume in Heavenly Creatures).

I have to say, I just finished 'The Time Traveller's Wife' and I was not that impressed. It felt like reading a flat pancake - nothing actually HAPPENED. Henry and Clare did this, Henry and Clare did that, Henry and Clare are such pretentious fuckwits that they actually don't own a TV and decide to name their kid ALBA... zzzzzzz basically sums it up.

Next on my reading list are the Southern Vampire series by Charlaine Harris. I love True Blood, the TV series, and I want to understand all the fuss about Eric/Sookie, because I have to say I'm not getting it from the show! Even though I love Alexander Skarsgard :3 I just don't feel the chemistry between his character and Anna Paquin's. Don't get me wrong though, Beeeeel/Sookie is such a snoozefest.

I also plan to reread The Scarlet Letter, whose message, as I found out sadly and recently, is still very relevant today. I do love that book. I always think that if a film were to be made out of it, James Callis and Christina Hendricks could play Reverend Dimmesdale and Hester Prynne respectively. And 'One Caress' by Depeche Mode could be its theme song or whatever, because I've always found the lyrics incredibly fitting to the novel's themes of sex, religion, sin and guilt.

Hmm, not too sure how to begin this. It's doubtful whether I'll update this too often, as I'll mostly be using this journal for communities and stuff, but we'll see.

Sayonara!
