I'm currently reading I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Hannah Green. A fascinating book.

Movies and TV / Re: The Virgin Suicides

I've seen this movie, and I have seen Marie Antoinette and Lost in Translation.

I really like The Virgin Suicides the best of all three. Lost in Translation was a bit of a disappointment to me after I had read all the praising reviews.

The thing about The Virgin Suicides is that it is a good story but what makes it so good is the mysterious quality you mention. The end is absolutely horrifying and from what I can remember, it's rather unexpected (too bad the title of the movie kind of ruins the surprise :p).

Anyway, it's a long time since I saw this movie so I might be wrong. Perhaps I should see it again.

I absolutely loved Avatar and am excited that there's coming a sequel! Even if it won't be as good as the first one (and I think it can't be as good as the first one was pretty much brilliant), it is still awesome to see and learn more about Pandora and the Na'vi.

And I have a crush on the Jake-avatar. What can I say, I like blue >_>

About time I'd say >_> *part of the haters* I loved season 1-3, but season 4 was SO incredibly lame. It felt like a dead end to me and stopped watching, and now it appears I'm not the only one who thought so :p

Movies and TV / Re: Anyone watch Caprica?
« on: June 25, 2010, 11:14:32 AM »
I'm a huge fan of BSG... And as such I had to watch Caprica too, of course :p. I really like it though but I understand where you all are coming from. It can be rather slow. But I hope they will reinvent it for the second season. The ending of the first season sure was promising enough!

Movies and TV / Re: Firefly anyone?
« on: June 25, 2010, 11:11:34 AM »
I love Firefly and Serenity!! I've seen both three or four times. I'm so sad they cut it off at only 14 episodes or so :( I could watch it forever!

Movies and TV / Re: Alice in Wonderland ::Maybe Spoilers::
« on: June 25, 2010, 11:10:06 AM »
I am a huge Burton fan, but I didn't like Alice in Wonderland that much - I liked it, but I usually like Burton movies way better. I have to say it wasn't really the ending that bothered me, but the entire movie :p.

I thought Johnny Depp was actually very weak in his role  I've never said that before :(. Maybe it's because the Mad Hatter... Didn't really add to the movie.  To me it doesn't feel like he should've had such a big role in it.
I also thought that at many points the movie was slow and that there were quite a couple of redundant scenes (for instant, where the Red Queen is talking with Stayne and the Rabbit is stealing back the scroll - it took way too long in my opinion, and it didn't seem as important for it to be so long).
Also, I found that the Jabberwocky was a bit too easily slayed >_>

There were parts I really liked as well. I loved the CGI. It was brilliant - especially all the animals. I loved the Red Queen (I just can't not love HBC). And even though I thought the White Queen was... awkward and I don't like Anne Hathaway and I liked her even less in this role, I thought she as the Queen fitted very well in the movie.
I adored the music. And the directing, of course. I loved the darkness of the world, too. I loved Mia Wasikowska as Alice.
I loved Tweedledee and Tweedledum, though I do think it was a bit disturbing that they had the face Matt Lucas (Little Britain) as I find him rather freaky.

I absolutely adore Dragon Age Origins. I love the world, the characters and I love the story. What can I say, maybe I'm one of those who just likes to run around collecting stuff ;).

Hey, welcome :D

I looked through the entire thread and I have to say I'm really impressed with all the fan art!! Well done, everyone!

I noticed though that it's mainly Mistborn fanart... I would love to see more Elantris/Warbreaker/Alcatraz stuff too... But oh well! I wish I could make pictures as cool as some!
