thinking, me


WALL-E is off the wall and out of this world!

When I first saw the trailer for WALL-E, the first thing that occured to me what the striking resemblence the robot WALL-E had to the character R.O.B. in my favorite Wii video game, Super Smash Bros. Brawl.  This obviously was a huge motivating factor for seeing this movie.  I also later heard that the robot also looked a lot like Johnny 5 from the movie, Short Circuit, which I have not seen and don't really care to talk about much since this review is not about that.  :-)  Anyways, regardless of what this robot reminds you of, WALL-E is without a doubt pretty much the most awesome robot ever! 

I say WALL-E very well may be the best movie out this summer.  And among all these superheroes we're seeing this summer, WALL-E definitely beats them all...well, we'll see...until The Dark Knight comes out... 

I give WALL-E a 9.7/10.0

Review: You mostly get Carell in 'Get Smart'

Get Smart was a TV show that I came across quite accidentally. There must have been a marathon of it on Nick @ Nite or TV Land or something and during my constant bouts of channel surfing, I probably saw it and thought, "Hm. Looks funny. I'll watch."

No disappointments: Anne Hathaway impresses in 'Jane'

I watched a preview/interview sort of thing with James McAvoy a few months ago on youtube. I watched the interview purely to stare at James McAvoy (yes, I am a fangirl), but watching the clip I got an intro into Becoming Jane, the story of how Jane Austen became, well, Jane Austen.

Review: 'Children of Men'

I just watched this movie. I'm a big Clive Owen fan (if you couldn't tell by the icon) and I have waited forever and a day to watch this film. I finally took advantage of my Netflix subscription to rent it and I wish I'd watched it much sooner. Because I loved it.

A delicious minestrone soup

I love to cook but during the drab, cold winter months, I get afflicted with the disease commonly known as "I-can't-get-off-my-bottom." The main thing that suffered from this was my cooking. I would be too lazy to cook something but I always craved hot food. So I had to learn to make something that didn't take too much time to prepare but would be hot, delicious and filling.

'Sense and Sensibility' and the art of the Indian remake

Last week I watched Ang Lee's Sense and Sensibility after quite a long wait. I thought I'd read the book first but then decided, well, I've seen the Tamil equivalent of it (Kandukondain Kandukondain or KK  as I will refer to it from now on) and decided I knew the story anyway. So I used the wonderfulness that is Netflix Instant and spent two hours with Elinor, Marianne, Edward Ferrars and Colonel Brandon.

CSI: Character Story Investigation

I wrote up something about this rather popular series in my own LJ...you're welcome to come and have a look!

OMG...it's mega movie review day!

Apologies for the long delay in posts. I've watched several films in the last week and I've wanted to review them as soon as I watched them. I just...didn't. But, excuses aside, I've got my takes on Christopher Nolan's Memento, the Irish indie musical Once, and an Audrey Tautou starrer Dieu est grande...je suis petite (aka God is Great, I'm not).

The Darjeeling Limited

Since I recipe'd last time, I'm going to give a movie review! I just (and I mean it hasn't been more than 15 minutes) finished watching The Darjeeling Limited, directed by Wes Anderson and starring Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzmann. I've only seen one previous Wes Anderson film (The Royal Tenenbaums, which I loved) and I had high-ish expectations for this one. I wasn't disappointed.

I LOVE Oscar night. It's one of my favorite TV events, and I always make it a point to watch it. This year is a bit unique for me, because I have only seen one of the nominated films, and that was Ratatouille!

Anyway, in honor of the big night, I present an Oscar poll, courtesy of mrstater. Participate now, to get your votes in under the wire! :)
