movies i’ve watched

  1. The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring* (0101) – with commentary!
  2. Watchmen (0106) – lol this movie was so long!
  3. Star Trek (0108) – not gonna lie, I only watched this because Cumberbatch is going to be in the sequel and apparently he is the one that gets me to watch it. Oh God I am going through all the nerd fandoms at the rate he and Martin Freeman are going. :DDD: Anyway. The movie was more entertaining than I expected.
  4. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (0110) – lol very entertaining. He might not be like canon!Holmes, but RDJ makes a hilarious Holmes. Although I think Jude Law as Watson was my favorite. AND MARY. MARY WAS BADASS. Also: STEPHEN FRY AS MYCROFT. Plot was… IDK, a little meh, I guess, but it was v. entertaining. (um but confession: Kim and I were so sleepy from the White Russian we drank before the movie that we… may have zoned out in some parts lolol)
  5. The Help (0114) – um, I cried. IDK how accurate this is (I hear there are some criticisms from the black community) but GOD, it hurt. I hate prejudice.
  6. Sunshine (0115) – omg, everybody dies. D:
  7. Fight Club (0115) – haha finally watched this. I want to read the book!
  8. I Love You, Man (0120) – You know what, I actually cannot hate any character Jason Segel plays. Well I don’t think they tried to make him an actual asshole, but even the annoying bits were endearing. CAN HE BE MY BEST MAN PLEASE. (what who said I can’t have a best man at my wedding? I WANT A BEST MAN.) (of course there will still be a maid of honor.)
  9. Iron Man (0122)
  10. Iron Man 2 (0122) – liked the two more than expected, huh.
  11. Pathology (0122) – well, I guess I was bound to watch a bad movie once in a while. :|
  12. Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain (0123) – oooh a French movie, I feel so ~cultured now. Hahaha jk. It was a fun, quirky watch, but Amelie is… kinda really dumb. I mean, the ~mystery and the games, it was cute at first. BUT DAMN GIRL, CLEARLY NINO WAS INTERESTED, NO NEED FOR EXTENDING THE GAME FOR FAR TOO LONG. Or idk, it was cute when it was just Amelie being quirky and romantic… and then she showed a ridiculous amount of cowardice and self-consciousness and I’m like, DUDE, what else do you want, he came for you already! If a cute French guy like that showed such obvious interest in me, I wouldn’t waste time on a scavenger hunt lolol. But then again I’m known to be sorta oblivious too, so… idk lol. But anyway, A++ on cinematography and editing. Such a pretty movie. *_____*
  13. J. Edgar (0125) – Leo, ILU, but Armie stole the show.
  14. Haywire (0126) – lol this one we watched because of the cast. Serves me right.
  15. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (Swedish) (0129)
  16. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (English) (0201) – I thought this one was better.
  17. The Woman in Black (0208) – Oh, DanRad. WHY. (tbh nakakagulat naman hehe)
  18. Chronicle (0210) – erm. Why do I let Kim drag me to these things?
  19. Rise of the Planet of the Apes(0225) – Erm. This was a movie about breaking research practices/rules.
  20. Limitless(0303) – interesting concept, great cinematography/editing, and Bradley Cooper! Who did the lighting for this movie? Because every shot was lit to make Bradley’s eyes as blue as possible. =))
  21. Hugo(0304) – BB MORDREEEED. Haha. Adorb movie.
  23. Beastly(0310) – blah.
  24. Legend of the Guardians: Owls of Ga’Hoole(0310) – amazing animation. And… so much violence hahaha. But I liked it a lot.
  25. Mirror, Mirror(0315) – watched with officemates. SPOILER: SEAN BEAN DOESN’T DIE!!
  27. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid(0317) – er. It was okay.
  28. The Hunger Games (0322) – AHHHHHH SO GOOD. Wish there was a little more depth regarding the uprising stuff, but I’m happy with the stuff they kept in, and the additions were A++. Cesar Flickerman (I LOVE STANLEY TUCCI) as expository device was awesome, and also the behind-the-scenes of the Gamemaker control room. AND PEETAAAAA. <3
  29. Megamind(0324) – funny movie.
  30. Get Him to the Greek (0407)
  31. Titanic* (0409) – in 3D. Because I can’t not. IT’S NOT RAINING IT’S JUST SEAWATER IN MY FACE ;_____;
  32. Third Star (0428) – in which Benedict Cumberbatch stabs me in the emotions.
  33. How to Lose Friends and Alienate People (0429) – I actually cannot remember what this movie was about.
  34. Stranger Than Fiction (0501) – apparently I can never take Will Ferrell seriously, um.
  35. Dark Shadows (0514) – k lang.
  36. Forever Enthralled (0518) – watched with Nico, kumu-culture kami kunyari lol. It… felt like three movies in one. Lol.

  1. Sherlock
  2. Running Man
    ep70 – LOL GOOD TIMES.
  3. Supernatural
  4. Modern Family
  5. Parks and Recreation
    2.24 – still trying to catch up! Aw that moment between Leslie and Mark legit made me tear up a litle. SIGH THIS SHOW AND IT’S FRIENDSHIPS. :’) Also finally we get to Adam Scott!
  6. How I Met Your Mother
  7. Community
  8. House M.D. – trying to catch up! Only S8 left!
  9. Merlin – OH GOD IT’S OVER I CAAAAAAAAAN’T. S5 was kind of frustrating — it wasn’t bad, per se, but. There was so much time, so many opportunities for a fucking magic reveal and YET they still did it in the very last episode. Good thing I love it so much I’d stick with it no matter what; I’d stuck with it through the truly atrocious S3, so sticking with it through a season padded with so much unnecessary plot (at least it wasn’t just mindless padding) was… well. Not a piece of cake, and I definitely yelled a lot at my TV this season, but GOD the reveal was worth the wait, if a little late. It was a little bit perfect considering the circumstances, and I wept. Er, this is getting a little long. I might make a separate post for all my feelings, hah.


  1.  2 Broke Girls – because Camille and Kim said so lol.
    1.01 – loved Kat Dennings, and Earl is my other favorite character. The rest ranged from meh to annoying but I liked Max (Kat) and Earl enough to continue. We’ll see if this thing doesn’t annoy me too after a few more eps.
  2. Revenge – it really is better than what the synopsis makes it sound! It’s like a teleserye with a better script and less hair-pulling! Haha.
  3. Game of  Thrones – this show is so hard to watch because a) half the people are stupid, whiny little shits who I wish would die already; and b) the badasses are the ones who die. Every episode I live in fear that this is the episode Ned (or, as I call him in my head, DADDY BOROMIR!) dies. Well I know he does die, I’ve read the book; I just don’t know at which point in the show yet.
    after s2 — JFC I HATE EVERYTHING
  4. Awake– JASON ISAACS!

things i gave up on

  1.  Supernatural – CRYING SORRY SHOW ILU BUT GOD I JUST COULDN’T. I will try to catch up in 2013.

things i want to watch

  1. Criminal Minds S4!
  2. Numb3rs S3 onwards
  3. One Tree Hill S6!
  4. CSI – everything. I want a DVD set of this.
  5. Will and Grace – everything too. I miss this show. <3
  7. Awake
  8. Downtown Abbey
  9. Pan Am
  10. Game of Thrones
  11. Revenge

favorite episodes

  2. 0305 – DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE CONCERT. This needs to be here because it’s one of the three shows I’ve been hoping for this year. I may or may not  be psychic. =))

quotable quotes

There are worse things you can do to the people you love than kill them.

–Lullaby, Chuck Palahniuk

The best way to waste your life is by taking notes. The easiest way to avoid living is just to watch.

–Lullaby, Chuck Palahniuk

There’s an old saying in showbiz, it’s “the show must go wrong.” Everything always goes wrong and you just have to deal with it.
