Three random things.

1. I have this in my oven right now and it smells delicious.

2. Mom and I saw Sherlock Holmes yesterday and I loved it and I get the Jude Law love now. Never been a big fan, but I thought he rocked it as Watson. RDJ is a little too awesome for words. And the costumes! Yowza.

3. I've had this little SGA ficlet open in tabs for a couple of months now and I keep reading it because it makes me smile. It's lovely and sweet.

I've never really been one for the end-of-the-year wrap-up, but this year, I tried to keep track of the books I read and the movies and TV I watched. Sort of. I forgot for most of the year, but I think I've made a mostly accurate list. I do love lists.

2008 books, movies and TV! )

Mom and I went to see Bolt today (very cute, very funny, best performance by a hamster in a plastic ball) and sitting behind us was a guy with two kids - a little girl and a teenage boy. During a slow bit in the movie, the little girl stage whispered to the boy, "David? Are you a vampire?"

Hee. It was awesome.
gatezilla: (Shoot it out!)
It was so nice out today. Crisp and cool and sunny. I love fall.

You guys are awesome at the movie quote game and guessed all but three, so I'm going to give you some clues. Here goes...

1. "Evil begets evil, Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger."

1 and 3 were both directed by the same person. A language was created for the movie. The hero and the villain are never in the same scene.

Bonus quote: "No no no no no no. 'Cuz if it was a bomb, the alarms would go off 'cuz all these hotels have bomb detectors, right?"

Fifth Element, guessed by [ profile] misspamela

2. "What are we gonna tell the cops? 'Fuck it if she can't take a joke, Sarge'."

Came out in 1989. Two of the actors are in new shows this season. The title of the movie is the name of the main character.

Bonus quote: "My parents wanted to move me into high school out of the sixth grade, but we decided to chuck the idea because I'd have trouble making friends, blah, blah, blah. Now blah, blah, blah is all I ever do. I use my grand IQ to decide what color lip gloss to wear in the morning and how to hit three keggers before curfew."

Heathers, guessed by [ profile] aw_lemongirl

3. "Rule #1. Never change the deal."

Opens with a car chase. The lead's car was specially made for the movie and is the only one that exists. Lead actor did most of his own stunts.

Bonus quote: "Three men. 254 kilos. That was the deal."

Extra double super shiny bonus points for the title quote (same movie as the last post's title).
gatezilla: (Mostly)
The movie quotes meme, ganked from [ profile] llaras. Yay movie quotes!

1. Pick 15 of your favourite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. Fill in the film title once it's guessed.

NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.

1. "Burgundy is the color of hot water bottles! Red is the color of sex and fear and danger and signs that say, Do. Not. Enter."

Lola in Kinky Boots, guessed by [ profile] maystone

2. "Prophets. Two of them. The one who speaks - and he will, at great lengths, whether you want him to or not - will make mention of himself as a prophet. The other one... well, he's the quiet type, but he'll be helpful just the same."

Metatron in Dogma, guessed by [ profile] caerwynx

3. "Evil begets evil, Mr. President. Shooting will only make it stronger."

4. "This one a long time have I watched. All his life has he looked away... to the future, to the horizon. Never his mind on where he was."

Yoda in Empire Strikes back, guessed by [ profile] dfwall02453

5. "Be silent. Keep your forked tongue behind your teeth. I did not pass through fire and death to bandy crooked words with a witless worm."

Gandalf in LotR: Two Towers, guessed by [ profile] dfwall02453

6. "I've got news for you. Kissing isn't what keeps me up to my elbows in placenta all day long."

Mr. Stratford in 10 Things I Hate About You, guessed by [ profile] aw_lemongirl

7. "Nothing here is what it seems. You are not the plucky hero, the Alliance is not an evil empire, and this is not the grand arena."

The Operative in Serenity, guessed by [ profile] dfwall02453

8. "And I realized that as dire chance and fateful cockup would have it, here I am, mid 50s, and without knowing it I've gone and spent most of my adult life with a chubby employee. And much as it grieves me to say it, it might be that the people I love is, in fact... you."

Billy Mack in Love Actually, guessed by [ profile] dfwall02453

9. "I do have a test today. That wasn't bullshit. It's on European socialism. I mean, really, what's the point? I'm not European. I don't plan on being European. So who cares if they're socialists? They could be fascist anarchists. It still doesn't change the fact that I don't own a car."

Ferris in Ferris Bueller's Day Off, guessed by [ profile] dfwall02453

10. "What are we gonna tell the cops? 'Fuck it if she can't take a joke, Sarge'."

11. "It is most gratifying that your enthusiasm for our planet continues unabated. As a token of our appreciation, we hope you will enjoy the two thermonuclear missiles we've just sent to converge with your craft. To ensure ongoing quality of service, your death may be monitored for training purposes. Thank you."

Recording from Magrathea in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, guessed by [ profile] rustydog

12. "No. You are a hallucination, brought on by alcohol. Russian Vodka, poisoned by Chernobyl!"

Frank Cross in Scrooged, guessed by [ profile] rustydog

13. "What can you tell me about a seven foot lunatic hacking away with a broadsword at one o'clock in the morning, New York City, 1985?"

Brenda in Highlander, guessed by [ profile] dfwall02453

14. "Rule #1. Never change the deal."

15. "Hope guides me. It is what gets me through the day and especially the night. The hope that after you're gone from my sight, it will not be the last time I look upon you."

Kate in A Knight's Tale, guessed by [ profile] budclare

Extra shiny bonus points if you can also name the quote in my Subject line. Just 'cause.
gatezilla: (Hello crazy man.)
Hi! I'm still here. *twirls*

I was in kind of a hermit-y place and got out of the habit of posting and the longer I go without posting anything, the more I feel like there's no way to sum up the last couple of months. But I told Mays that I would post today, so I'm going to get back into the swing of things with a meme, just to break the ice. Did I just mix a metaphor? Eh. Whatever.

By way of [ profile] lbmango, who is not actually on my flist, but I'm so bored at work right now that I'm surfing friends-of-friends to entertain myself:

When you see this, post in your own journal with your favorite quote from The Princess Bride.

Man in Black: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.
Vizzini: Wait till I get going!!!

There are SO many good ones, but I use that dizzying intellect quote all the time in the hopes that someone will know what the hell I'm talking about and answer with Vizzini's line. No love yet. :)

Okay, I've been sitting here trying to come up with something even remotely coherent to say about the X-Files movie, and honestly, all I can do is...




...and the rest has to go under the cut, because I can't keep myself from squeeing about things that are spoilerific, so... we go... )

On top of it all, I had lunch afterwards with [ profile] caerwynx and [ profile] dfwall02453 and their lovely girl! And that was most excellent.

I am full of squee.

I just ordered my X-Files movie tickets for tomorrow morning.



I will try to refrain from seeing The Dark Knight again while I'm there.


No promises.

Summer movies. Is there anything they can't do?

For [ profile] caerwynx (and all the other Iron Man fic junkies on my flist), Turning Your Orbit Around, by [ profile] atrata.

The summary is "Five terribly inappropriate gifts Tony Stark has given."

Three of my co-workers are talking about how much they want to see that Martin Lawrence movie where he takes his kid on a college road trip. They want to see it. It makes me die a little inside.

And now it's 20 minutes later and they're still talking about it. Now I want to fly over the dividing wall of our row and attack them with my stapler and retro Bic pen.

*war cry*

I never played Dungeons & Dragons so I'd never heard of Gary Gygax until all these little odes to him started popping up all over my flist. John was a D&D geek when he was in high school and while I never understood exactly what went on during those marathon gaming sessions he had with his friends, I knew it made him happy. And much later when he and Ron and I all ended up in Boston and they needed someone to game with, I got dragged into it and I wouldn't trade our RPG adventures for anything in the world. RIP, Mr. Gygax. And thanks.

Actor Heath Ledger dies at 28

God, that makes me sad. I wouldn't call myself a Ledger fangirl or anything, but I really liked watching him onscreen and his performance as Ennis Del Mar really touched me. Whatever happened, it's just so sad. He'll be missed.
gatezilla: (Blood on my hands)
I saw Casino Royale for the second time today. And I must gush.

Shake me... )

I hope those of you in my neck of the woods got to see the lunar eclipse just now - it was so cool! I love eclipses. It's such a stupid little thing to get excited about, when you think about it. I mean, it's just the Earth passing between the sun and the moon. But on the other hand, it's the Earth passing between the sun and the moon! That's huge, you know? Anyway.

Speaking of celestial things, the sunsets have been amazing the past two evenings. The beauty of the sun going down and reflecting off of the light cloud layer is only rivaled by how clear and bright the moonrise is against a streaky purple-blue-grey sky. Yowza.

I went to see Team America tonight with Ron and Sheri. When I wasn't creeped out by the marionettes and/or offended on behalf of Middle Eastern folks, gay folks and the French, I have to admit that it was pretty damn funny. I have a feeling that "Good work, team! Now get back to headquarters for debriefing and cocktails!" is going to become an integral part of my daily conversations.

My roommate and her friend Psycho Jane are watching the Sox game. I'd really like the Sox to win tonight, if it means there'll be less rioting than if they manage to win while playing here. Oh, and because it would be oooooover. For crying out loud, I'd like to be able to have one conversation that doesn't revolve around Pedro. Honestly.

Bed now.

I think I might be in love with Netflix. On Monday night, I dropped my three movies off at the PO and my new three came today. It's like crack, yo.

So over the weekend, I watched:

Bend It Like Beckham, The Salton Sea, All I Want )

Tonight, I'll be freaking myself out with Aliens, the Special Edition.
