(64) Girl, Interrupted + links

By Sati. Friday, February 1, 2013

  • So my exams - I think I did really well on Monday, I wrote the essays and kinda answered the question + remembered one of 50 verdicts I was supposed to learn by heart - we were supposed to write about that single one he gave us on the exam. So I'm hoping I passed it. Today I passed my Theory and philosophy of law exam - it was crazy, the dude basically kept asking questions that were more and more confusing - he kept bugging me about one word for about 2 minutes. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to get 2/3 of the questions I knew answers to. I stayed up and studied the whole night before in order to repeat every single one of 120 terms, which was basically reading the same thing over and over again. I went all Girl, Interrupted walking around the room and repeating them out loud. Now I'm actually into my 34th hour without sleeping. After the week I had, I'm kinda used to that, actually.
  • As you probably noticed things are a bit more colorful on cinematic corner - I added some red and green here and there, mostly because Valentine's Day is approaching so there will be a very special post for that.
  • SAG ceremony was pretty cool. Unfortunately, my favorite people to observe during those things - Tommy Lee Jones and Joaquin Phoenix - were not there, but still plenty of awesome things happened. Modern Family won the 3rd consecutive award for comedy ensemble and Bryan Cranston finally won over overrated Damien Lewis! I think Cranston's performance is, right after Ian McShane's work in Deadwood, the best performance in TV history. He is also the only person who deserved the win for Argo which won for ensemble. I was thrilled Lawrence won over Chastain - J.Law looked genuinely moved and it was so sweet to see how proud her parents were. Marion Cotillard's reaction to her win was the best part of the ceremony - she seemed so happy for her! Now that's a classy lady right there.
  • Anne Hathaway was cringe worthy talking about having dental and hugging Sally Field. Alec Baldwin winning what was it? 8th award in the row? Ridiculous. He is funny but you gotta be kidding. Any of Modern Family guys deserved that win more. And how dare you show the clips of fabulous Lee Pace when you didn't even include him in ensemble nomination? He is soooo....dreamy on these two new stills that resurfaced.
  • I only saw one movie this week - Dredd. It was really cool, actually. Entertaining, fast paced and it had plenty of lovely slow motion sequences and gore and we need more gore in movies nowadays, especially since everything is being cut down to PG-13 rating. I'm gonna see Life of Pi this weekend and hopefully I'll find the time to rewatch Skyfall and start working on new Visual Parallels post soon.
  • Man of Steel is one of the most brilliantly cast films of the year. We finally got the first picture of Lois Lane played by the lovely Amy Adams. No idea why the picture was released in black and white, though.
  • Charlotte Rampling is going to guest star on 8th season of Dexter. I suppose it's now the time for me to catch up with the show because I definitely have to witness that.
  • More problems with The Girl who played with Fire - after Skyfall success Daniel Craig wants a raise and now Sony is thinking of writing off his character. This is getting ridiculous. Just get your shit together, all of you, and start working on this movie.
  • Wonderful Eva Green was cast as Ava Lord in Sin City sequel. This is just brilliant. The film will be based on A Dame to Kill For which is a really cool story and no worries - if they follow it, you will still get to see Clive Owen as Dwight by the end of it (because Dwight has his old face here he will be played by Josh Brolin)
  • I kinda wish they also made Sin City film based on To Hell and Back mostly because of Delia. How wonderful would Charlize Theron be in this part? Delia is an assassin who kills men after sleeping with them - I'd pay so much to see that. Theron was actually just cast in Seth MacFarlane comedy - something about cowboys. I blacked out after imagining Theron in cowgirl attire so I don't know more details.
  •  The first teaser for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is going to be released in May. This is torture. Don't they realize it's the only movie with Lee I'm getting this year? Lee can you just record something at home and upload it on youtube in meantime? You know, shirtless, or something?
  • New photos from season 3 of Game of Thrones emerged - I can't wait! I mean I'm excited when American Horror Story is on air but I really can't wait till Sunday whenever those glorious 2 months during which we have Game of Thrones are happening.

    2. I'm reading this at the vet with my dog and I cracked up at your 'shirtless' remark.

      My dog? He doesn't find anything currently funny.

      Thanks for the link!

    4. Really excited about Eva Green being in Sin City 2 (plus, Juno Temple is in it too!). I can't wait for Man of Steel, Amy Adams is gonna be awesome in it. I like Hathaway, but she is getting SO annoying haha. Hopefully the Dragon Tattoo sequel will sort itself out.

      PS - Congrats on passing your Theory and Philosophy of law exam

      1. Juno Temple is fantastic and I'm so happy she'll be in it too! Hathaway is starting to make me hate her, I'm loving all the posts on movie awards lately :D "What's wrong with this picture? Hathaway is in it" :P

        Thank you!

    8. Awsome stuff. Man of Steel does have a great cast, let's hope they pull it together and give us a great movie.

      Right now I'm just glad we're getting another Sin City movie, for awhile there I thought that that would never happen! Love those books!

      1. I hope Nolan kept Snyder in line and didn't let him shoot another Sucker Punch ^^

        Yeah they wanted to do the sequel ever since the first one came out, I remember all the rumors about Depp and Jolie being in the sequel, but I'm actually glad the cast doesn't have any crazy popular people in it. JGL fangirls will probably be drawn to it, though :)

    9. Great gif set of Joseph in Dark Knight Rises! The first Sin City seems sooo long ago - happy to hear Eva Green will be in the next one - love her!

    10. Good luck with your exams, but you should really get your sleep- it's important!
      I was so happy about the JLaw win, too, she is lovely, I really want her to win the Oscar!
      I wanna see Life of Pi so bad, but I'll probably miss it in cinemas by the time I get there :(
      Man.Of.Steel. Henry.Cavill.In.A.Tight.Suit.Looking.Moody- YES please! I should really stop fangirling now!

      1. Thank you! :) I think she has a big chance especially if she wins BAFTA.

        Henry Cavill is so dreamy! I'm so glad he finally landed a big role, since he almost won the casting for Batman and James Bond.

    11. Congrats on passing your exam!

      Saw Dredd a couple weeks ago and loved it. Would make a great double feature with The Raid. Can't wait for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For and Man of Steel!

      Thanks for the link! :)

    12. I got to see Dredd, I keep hearing good things about it. Glad to hear that your Exam is done with that sounds like a real PIA.

      1. It is really worth seeing, great, entertaining film.

        Thanks, yeah it's a huge relief!

    13. oh I'm glad the exams are going well! I'm done with mine (the written ones). Had my first oral on thursday, still got two left - all good for now! I've done philosophy of law - it was taught by the university's headmaster and it was pretty weird... but fun.

      With Henry Cavill as Superman and her as Lois, Man of Steel better be good! I can't wait for season 3 of GOT, it's been forever!

      1. Thanks! I just cannot believe how many exams you have, this is nuts. I only had these two and I'm exhausted. I think the most I had in one term were 3.

        I really hope Nolan's involvement was prominent because Zack Snyder really can screw up a good idea and even films with great cast. GOT hiatus is always so painful :/

    14. Congrats on passing your exam! Hope you get good news on the other soon.

      Glad to hear you enjoyed Dredd. I'm going to try to catch it this week -- sounds like good fun.

    15. Brain stopped working after seeing that gorgeous pics of Lee Pace... [swoon]. Oooh, I'm curious what you'll have in store for Valentine's Day, Sati!

      Amen on your comment on Man of Steel. LOVE Henry Cavill, hoping he'd be showered with roles after Superman, same wish I had for Lee as well, [sigh]

      1. Oh you gotta see Lincoln! THIS beauty talking and yelling in House of Representatives? I had to open the window since it was so hot!

        Yeah, they both deserve better roles! And in good movies too!

      1. Thank you! I managed to pass both so it's really great since now all I have to do is study in my own pace for bar exam. And that's in 8 months so there is still some time :)

        You're welcome! VP post is going slowly but hopefully it will be finished soon.
