VIFF Finale

So I’ve been and watched the third movie of the day and, man am I whipped. All that theater-sittin’ and movie-watchin’ really takes a lot outta you :P. So here’s that last review…

The Eclipse

I haven’t seen a cross between a pretty serious drama and a jumpy horror film before, so in that respect this was cool to watch. Also, horror’s usually a living-room deal for me, so the audience reactions were fun, even if the scares weren’t too serious. Just some jump moments, and I suppose the heavier, slower-paced, serious drama bits and the somewhat-quirky comedic bits made the scary jumps more jumpy. What first drew me to this was hearing Aidan Quinn in the cast list, ‘I haven’t seen him in anything for ages,’ I thought, so I went along for the ride. He, along with the rest of cast (male lead, Ciarán Hinds, and female lead, Iben Hjejle) gave good performances in what’s essentially an entertainment piece that dabbles in emotion and fear, loss, grief and a bit of humor. Another film about life (adding to the day’s previous movies), this ended on a good note, a realistic one I thought, better than the usual romantic fare we get in mainstream cinema. Final word(s): good stuff :D.

Found this via Gawker. Awesome. My kind of humor and subject matter, great fun to see the president recognizing and enjoying the humor as well. It’s a good beginning.

So I'm a 9

Found this on Facebook today. Apparently I’m a 9. Here’s what it means…

9’s are natural entertainers. They are very caring and generous, giving away their last dollar to help. With their charm they have no problem making friends and nobody is a stranger to them. They have so many different personalities that people around them have a hard time understanding them. They are like chameleons, ever changing and blending in. They have tremendous luck, but also can suffer from extremes in fortune and mood. To be successful they need to build a loving foundation.

Interesting. I laughed when it said ‘no problem making friends,’ but as I read, it made sense, and actually was more accurate. Interesting…food for thought for the night I guess. Not like my mind needs stimulus form this and bittersweet Coldplay at the same time. Ooh, double-teamed by sorrow! Double-sorrow’d. …Watched Season 2 of The Guild today, and half of Season 1 as a recap and to show the roommate. Laughed pretty good at both. Yea.
