dweomeroflight: (Pretty Helena)
My love affair with HBC continues...

Pics under the cut for images of her as Miss Havisham in Great Expectations and Julia in Dark Shadows. Both come out in 2012. I. am. excited.

beauty is always only an illusion Merlin. Didn't you know that? )

Who likes Helena on my flist? Excited for any of her up and coming films? Tell me about them!

ps: Looks like she is confirmed for Madame Thernadier in Les Miserables. YES. SQUEE!!!!!!

I am convinced disaster is imminent! The trainwreck is hurtling faster and faster at me! The ridiculous will break the Richter Scale.

I am not going to watch this episode for a week or two. I must phych myself up for it. IF ANYONE SPOILERS ME HERE OR ON FACEBOOK I WILL KILL YOU. OK?

Goodnight my dear flist! Every Spooks fan has been amazing! GOOD LUCK WITH DEALING AND SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE!!!

Was like eating the chocolate cake from Matilda, drowning in a calorific sea of cream and with a figurative cherry on top... later there will be stomach pains but right now... I REGRET NOTHING.

Series Ten confuzzles me. Either I am exceedingly amused (probably not Kudos intention) by the week's serious buizness or I am bored and grumpy. This week falls into the amusing and good in a 'Ruth/Harry fan ficcer' kind of way (so [livejournal.com profile] zulu_ottawa did you hate this?)

it eez alwayz zee Russians, with a tortoise in the garden )

DO NOT TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT NEXT WEEK'S TRAILER IN THE COMMENTS. I WOULD HAVE TO KILL YOU.

Besides I already know. Harry is revealed to be Lord Voldemort. Harry Potter and the aurors come after him with fighter planes and broomsticks. Epic duel ensues. Ruth looks worried and then goes on a holiday to Greece. Spin off show comes next in the same vein as SeaChange. Which had a rather epic theme song Seachange Theme

Can someone please explain this Moffuckery of an episode in simple language please... I spent the entire 45 mins in a sea of WHAAAA???????

ps: In other news, Nicola Walker is a God Damned Goddess. I already knew this. But of late multiple things have proved this to me further.

OMG YOU GUYZ... I LOVED DOCTOR WHO. BEST EPISODE OF THE SEASON AFTER GAIMAN'S THE DOCTOR'S WIFE.

I waited and waited to hear your footsteps )

Spooks 10.1. To quote Big Town All Stars: "That was er, um, well... rather good... wasn't it?" Low expectations. I haz em. They help.

all the beautiful people )

Well. It had to happen eventually I suppose. A Moff episode that was less than excellent. Still, RTD had a lot worse in his time, and I'm willing to cut the guy some slack for an episode... review under cut.

where is my mind? )

Well, what has Doctor Who become these days? My Mum summed it up best imo, "If Life on Mars was the thinking man's Doctor Who, Moffat Doctor Who is now the thinking man's Doctor Who."

I've always had a strange relationship with Harry Potter: the books. I always felt that J K Rowling sold out in book six and seven and the pace got very uneven. That's not to say I didn't appreciate the world she created and the characters I came to love and the way that part of my childhood is caught up in each books pages. But having said that, this is the reason I went to DH:p1 with so much trepidation as I didn't like Book 7 all that much. I was pleasantly surprised when I found it to be the strongest movie that had been released so far. I also was given an extra treat in that I thought Bellatrix Lestrange truly elevated herself above EVERYONE and really, really encapsulated the essence of evil. It was an astonishing performance from Helena and I think it is now impossible to seperate her from the character. I really feel that Helena brought a lot to the role of Bellatrix, she was born to play the part.

Actual film under cut link for part two:

I think the last two films have been the strongest because the art direction really picked up (very Burtonish I noticed), the storytelling cut straight to the heart of the books even if that meant adding in or taking away scenes from the source material and finally, the atmostphere and the drama was exactly right. Deathly Hallows Part One and Two succeeded in a way the previous Potter's haven't done. They convinced me that these were movies in their own right with strong themes and performances that had real lasting dramatic resonance.

It seems pretty dead on lj at the moment (probably due to exams) but I am overseas in two days with no internet acess for a month so I will write this review now while I remember it and whoever sees it sees it :)

Overall I liked the episode. Nitpicks and quibbles and meta and general thoughts under the cut.

Also for [livejournal.com profile] squint13 I have created some silly tags to match hers (well not quite).

Sorry for such a late write up flist but this was too good an episode to not rewatch and have a think about. Bloody hell Neil Gaiman. I love you for writing this. This was my favourite episode of s6 so far. Pirates of the Whoniverse was too meh for me and kind of fillerish and the opening two parter is too much of an unknown quantity. The problem with the two parter is that it asked more questions than it answered which means depending on how the episodes are resolved will depend on my enjoyment on future rewatches (but by the way in Moffat I trust).

I haven't enjoyed a Who episode this much since... oh wait... The Big Bang lol. I've noticed that my preferred episodes are always the ones which emphasise the fairy story like quality that Dr Who holds, refers back to previous show canon, and reminds me of just how adventurous, lovable, ludicrous and well silly but endlessly fun this show really is.
