faege: classic boys in a classic car (win at life)
Just got back from watching "The Book of Eli." I feel like I'll be an expert on the End Times after this semester. Between my Eschatology class, Supernatural, and all the hype about movies like "Book of Eli" and "Legion," I'll be set.

All I need now is a machete, aviators, and a King James Bible.

Hee.

Watched Jared Padalecki in "Thomas Kinkade's Christmas Cottage" last night. (Yes, I realize it's June. Still, it's almost six months exactly from Christmas, so I figured I was justified.) Very cute, fun to watch, and tugs on the heartstrings--oh wait, you meant the movie? Right, right, the plot. Um, there was one, but I kept getting distracted by the Padapuppy's big smile and soupy eyes. Okay, fine, besides him, the movie was good, but I'm a sucker for Christmas movies of almost any sort. Give me people walking around in a small snowy town, all bundled up with beanies and scarves, and I'm set. Plus, Jared is adorable.

Almost finished with C.S. Lewis's "Till We Have Faces". I've always heard it's a book I should read, so I finally got down to it. The cover of the book is very cool (I've got the one with what looks like Cupid/angel/boy with wings coming down from the sky). I get so distracted by the feathers. The writing style is very different from what I've read of Lewis in his other fiction works (Narnia, Screwtape, Hideous Strength), and I thought it was neat that he was able to write from the female perspective so well. The book is slightly depressing, but thought-provoking. Makes me look at my relationships in a new light. All in all, I'm glad to have (almost) read it, and I'm sure it's one I'll turn to again. I appreciate the questions it's brought up and the lessons it's marked out, but it's not a book that I'll turn to for some light reading in the future. Like most Lewis books, it's one that I'll open up if I need some guidance.

Alright, I admit it, I deliberately abstained from watching it in theaters because I didn't want to be associated with the squealing throngs of fangirls. Is it wrong to not want to be pelted with popcorn every time the fifteen year old next to you goes into shock when Edward Cullen appears on screen? I didn't think so. So I waited until "Twilight" could be rented and then watched it in the safety of my room--no popcorn-toting fangirls, just me and a few friends ready to laugh our heads off at the corny lines, unnecessary slow-motion shots, and the way Bella and Edward stare longingly into each other's eyes for no reason at all.

And if I had seen it in a theater, I probably would have accidentally spilled popcorn over my fellow movie-watchers too--just because I couldn't have contained the laughter. )
