oh terry, why? )

3. meme

everyone had their fun with this yesterday. here's mine. but i'm changing it to my own liking, because i don't like jello. and, truth be told, i never remember meeting anyone. first impressions don't make impressions on me.

1. Reply with your middle name and I'll respond with something random about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll pick a flavor of pie to wrestle with you in.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me. or maybe just to me.
5. I'll tell you something i've never told you before.
6. I'll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If i do this for you, you have to post something rediculously stupid in your journal.
apparently the scar-as-horcrux theory isn't as unique as i thought. it seems many many *coughdelusionalcough* folks have come to this conclustion because the current poll on mugglenet is asking readers their opinion on the theory. and, last time i checked, the results were neck and neck for the scar vs. harry himself.


where am i now? 135? 135.

REVIEWS OF THE DUCHESS #135: STEAMBOY (dvd)

i know that "akira" is one of the most amazing anime films of all time. hell. we can thank it (as well as "vampire hunter d" and "urotsukidoji") for the underground kickstart that anime needed over here. and then otomo holed himself away for ten years to make "steamboy" and i say that's ten years of wasted otomo.

that's not to say the film isn't amazing, it is. but it's five-year amazing, not ten-year amazing. it's got some lovely detail, and he really got 19th century manchester/london right. there's one or two crazy awesome camera shots that made me anticipate more, but were never delivered. if you have 10 years on a project, why not experiment more?

and the character of scarlet was a hard sell...you're supposed to like her by the end. but she's a little primped dog-beating bitch of a brat...two hours ain't gounna change my mind on that one. i'm sure they were just trying to make her "interesting" and "detailed" but i found her a waste. in fact, i disliked most of the characters for one reason or another, even ray, the main boy, because he was way too bland.

but it looks nice. it definitely impresses on detail and spectacle scale. the design is fantastic. but the characters and story are a bust and feel dated...by about 10 years.
