So, Andrew and I are watcing 300, and I've never seen it before, and even though it's on TV (and  therefore edited) It is pretty fucking awesome.

However, it is essentially Braveheart in Ancient Greece, yes?

Also, it's very hard to take this movie seriously because of all the internet memes I've seen about it. Although, the lines are still pretty kickass. My favorite is Queen Mrs. Leonidas: "Because Spartan women are the only ones who give birth to real men."


Everyone has the right to make an ass out of themselves. You can't let the world judge you too much.

Dear God, I love this movie.

So, this meme has been floating around Facebook lately, but I know that it's originally a Livejournal meme, so...

I will post quotes, and those who want to play should guess what movie they are from. For this set of quotes, they will all be Disney movies. And I'm not going to pick easy lines, either.


Ready? )

Remember my post the other day about weeping over the English language as a result of Flair?

I just searched for grammar flair, and it has cured me. Thank the lord for people who know good grammar, are witty, and have enough free time to make their frustrations into bitchy, clever, scathing, gramatically correct, properly spelled flair.

As Captain Barbosa once said, "Gents! Our hope is restored!"

My personal favorite? "rite 2 me liek dis, and I'll SHOOT YOU." 

Go look at them. They're hilarious. YAY FLAIR!

You know, I had such fun with the movie quotes last time, I decided to do some more.

Same rules as last time. Guess the movie, don't cheat, etc. etc.


Yay! I love quotes so very much.
-I don't usually like westerns, cause I usually find them hopelessly boring, but this one is very good. 

-Though I'm not going to lie, I started watching it because Emilio Estevez and Christian Slater are both very attractive. And young Kiefer Sutherland isn't exactly ugly. There's also Grisolm from CSI and Viggo Mortensen. In fact, the sheer number of recognizable people in this movie is astonishing.

-I also looked up the real Billy the Kid, and, of course, he wasn't nearly as cool as movies and fables make him out to be. Though he was kind of awesome. But I'm watching this movie, and I'm wondering, what is our fascination with ourlaws? Like, they've made so many movies about these guys, and they were not nice guys in real life, but they're just so cool! I think it's the fact that everyone longs to just say "Fuck you" to the world, jump on a horse, grab a gun, and ride off to the next town. Want something? Take it. You get to hang out with whores and indians and Mexicans and all the cool people. And in the movies they make them invincible. Usually. There's nothing they can't do, and they never get shot until it will move the plot forward. Even though the real Billy the Kid died at 21, I guarntee you Emilio Estevez isn't going to.

-Although, going out in a blaze of glory and bullets is kind of an awesome way to die.

-So, the indian and Christian Slater get in a knife fight (because men are idiots) and CS put his very very large knife all the way through the indian's arm. And he didn't even flinch. Then, after the fight, he looks at CS, calm as can be, and says, "You want your knife back?" It was AMAZING. In fact, I have just decided that the indian is my favorite character. Wish I knew his name. 

Indian Guy: *shouts something not in English*
Horses: *run full tilt down an almost vertical cliff*
Christian Slater: *safely, at bottom of cliff* How'd you get them to do that? What's that word mean?
Indian Guy: It's an ancient Navajo word. It means stop.

- Alan Ruck would be my last choice for someone to play a cowboy. Especially an outlaw.

-I want to be the kind of woman who can ride out of town completely naked on a horse.

So now I have finally seen Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer.

I watched the movie Prick Up Your Ears (starring Gary Oldman, Alfred Molina, and Vanessa Redgrave) tonight. It's the tragic love story/biopic about playwright Joe Orton (Oldman) and his lover Kenneth Halliwell (Molina). Google/Wikipedia Orton for the story. Or watch the movie. Cause it was AMAZING.

Which brings me to my point: Megan's thoughts on Prick Up Your Ears (in no particular order):

In conclusion, it was a very good movie. I highly recommend it.
Watched Pan's Labyrinth for the second time tonight. Cried again. Not nearly as much as last time, but still cried.

It's just such a sad movie. Beautiful, and very visually appealing, but sad. So sad.

Also, I love the music. It's all based off the tune of Mercedes' lullaby, and it's just gorgeous.

Ofelia still looks just like Cinzia. (And those are both still awesome names.)

Never follow orders without question, just for the sake of doing so.
So after watching Night at the Museum tonight (which was very good, by the way), I feel that I must update my list of things that will always be funny.

1. People getting hit with frying pans, and/or in the head.
2. Men in drag.
3. Fart jokes.
New Addition
4. Any slashy/gay cowboy/Brokebak Mountain jokes.

Yeah. It was a good movie.

"I will man-handle you, Jedidiah!"

"I ain't gonna quit you!"

Hee hee hee! I'm still giggling.
Have I mentioned lately how fucking awesome I am?

I claim victory over my window. Ha ha!

(See, they make the windows in my suite (the kind that you crank open) so they only open like three inches, and I successfully figured out how to unscrew the mechanism so they'll open all the way. Furthermore, I did it in such a way that I have done no permanent damage, I can put it back with minimal effort when I leave, and until then I can open my window as far as I fucking want. All because I am awesome.)

Oh, the cleverness of me! (5 million browine points to the first person to know what that's from.)
A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having.

-We have guns.
-No, what you have are bullets, and the hope that when your guns are empty, I will no longer be standing. Because if I am, you'll all be dead before you can reload.

Are you like, a crazy person?

God I LOVE that movie.

But my mother... not so much with the movie loving. She always has to be so damn logical. Oh well.

"They haven't made a good move since Gone With the Wind."
My brother and I bought a wireless router yesterday... which means that I am currently online... IN MY LIVING ROOM.

And it is AWESOME.

In other news, Hannah Loso is a blanket hog.

Saw My Super Ex-Girlfriend last night. It was ok. Funny at times. Luke Wilson is still hot.
"You did throw a shark at me."

Janeea won at poker last night, but I wasn't doing too shabby. And she and Kim won at Trivial Pursuit too. Whores. (But not really, obviously)

Ah, I don't really feel like going into details, but last night was a good night. I love hanging out with people. (Who doesn't?)

Stupid Video World didn't have any more copies of V for Vendetta last night. Oh well. Hence there were games instead.

Yeah, I'm just spewing random nonsense thougts as they come into my head. I'll stop now.
So wow.

It's been, like, forever since the last time I updated, which is mostly because lots of busy and lots of Eric on the computer.

And now my Shift key is spazzing. WTF?

Le'anyhoodle, let's start with my birthday.
-Went to lunch with mom at Tapas, where I'd never been before. Consider this my recommendation for it. It was very good.

-Went to see Pirates of the Carribean, Dead Man's Chest, and didn't get the title until about halfway through the movie. Since most of you saw it with me, all I'm going to say about it is what I said in the theater after it was over: HOLY FUCKING SHIT IN A BOX. (And I mean every single one of those capitol letters.) (And did I mention that Sarah is awesome? I'm never going to another movie without her if I can help it. We just sat there and screamed after it was over. GAH.) Also, if anyone hasn't seen it, there is a scene after the credits. AND THE MOVIE IS OMG AND IS IT MAY YET? (Although, I have to see this one again, because I didn't understand all of it. I know there was a chest (not Elizabeth's) and a key and Johnny Depp and Emo!Will, but I missed a lot of details.)

Look! And undead monkey!

-Went back to my house for cake and talking and presents and this game Janeea bought me called Boxers or Briefs which is AMAZING.

I GOT DOMINOES. (Because Neea is awesome.)

Then the next day I drove up to Swanton for the weekend to visit Abby, who is also AMAZING and I love her, but since none of you really know her that well, I won't babble about that except to say that I taught her to play dominoes and she beat me 10 rounds in a row. While we watched The 10th Kingdom. And her parents are so cool.

And I saw Gladiator for the first time. Ah yes little bird, war is hell and I am studly.


And they have actual swans in Swanton. Who knew?

Yesterday and Monday were pretty calm, hung out with Sarah and some Chinese food, went to Burlington yesterday and bought pretty things at Hot Topic, as always, and ate dinner at The Church Street Tavern, (which I also recommend) and ERIC DROVE HOME. Yikes.

And, that brings us up to today.

I know I'll remember more stuff I wanted to say later, but this is enough drivel for now I think.

OH! I FINALLY got the joke in The 10th Kingdom!!!

Tony: Where's the wood?
Virginia: We couldn't find any.
Tony: No wood? In the forest?
Wolf: *walks by*
Tony: You don't have any wood either!
Wolf: Yes, thank you.
Wolf's Tail: *sticks out of his pants obscenely*

See, I got that they didn't have any firewood because they'd been off having sex, and I got that his tail = his arousal, but I never knew why he said "Yes, thank you." And now I do. Because he didn't have any wood. In the pants area.

God, I am thick.
And now, some quotes from Billy Connoly, in no particular order. (And you have to imagine all of this being said with a heavy Scottish accent.)

"I'm the only guy I know who died in the Muppet Movie!"

"Life is a waste of time, time is a waste of life;
Get wasted all the time, and you'll have the time of your life!"

"That's a whole different box of frogs."

"There was another fella in the room, who was quite obviously dead. And had been for some time. All his family's sittin' around him, talking about football, and this little boy, you know, the one they're gonna be lookin' at through bars one day, is shoving grapes up the dead fella's nose. He says "Daddy, daddy, I'm up to 17! I'm goin' for 21!" and his dad says "That's nice son."

Then my mom and I had this conversation:
Billy Connoly: *Swears. A lot.*
Me: Mom, you thought Dane Cook was bad? This guy swears twice as much as Dane Cook, and you don't mind.
Mom: Well, he has an accent, so that makes it ok.

Sometime soon I'm going to start showing off all the new Firefly icons I've found, but not yet. Just colorbars for now.
Some Quotes:

Cheers make girls do stupid cartwheels. Orgasms make people happy. - Grahm, But I'm A Cheerleader (Which is an AMAZING movie, btw.)

(The following is from someone who realized she likes girls and not guys so much, and is roughly paraphrased)

See, I can look at guys and find them good looking, but it's like... You can go into a museum and look at a painting and think "Gee, that's beautiful," but that doesn't mean you want to fuck it.

And besides two rousing games of Trivial Pursuit, that's all for today.
You ever get to that point where you're just so physically exhausted that absolutely everything is not just funny but so hysterical you laugh so hard you cry?

And I mean EVERYTHING, like things that are just not even really that funny, (like four livejournal posts in less than four hours) but you laugh like a lunatic anyways because you're so tired that they seem hysterical?

Well, I'm totally there.

I just told my dad, when he said it would have been smarter to put the waste basket close to me so I could throw my mound of tissues into it instead of on the floor: "Yes, but sadly that didn't happen" and then laughed about it for 5 minutes.

In fact, I'm still giggling.

I must be getting sick, because besides the mound of tissues I seem to be slightly hysterical.

I'm wet, I'm in pain, and I'm still hysterical! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Good God, I need to go to sleep.
God, I'm such a sap. I've seen that movie like 500 times, and I still love it.

So Renee and I had a wonderful lunch at Applebee's today. We saw Kelli and Jim, Jess and Justin, and like the entire Peterson clan. Aren't there any other restaurants in Rutland?

Anywho, I love Matt because I can now listen to Honky Tonk Badonadonk over and over and over again. HA!

But the real purpose of this entry is to tell whoever wants to come that we're going to see X-3 tomorrow night. I don't know what time it's playing yet or what time we're meeting, but I will find out as soon as I can and post a final schedule. It'll be the earlier showing, and we'll probably meet like half an hour before it starts because it's a Friday, and opening night. Just you can all plan.


P.S. Oh, and I added some pretty stuff to my user info too.
Ok, if you don't do anything else in the next few weeks, GO SEE V for Vendetta!!!!!!

Oh my God, it was amazing. I drove out to Westway with Renee and Erin to see it. GAH.

I love Natalie Portman. I always have. She's beautiful and she's an amazing actress and, as I told Erin, I'd do her. With or without her hair.

Also, I don't know how intentional it was, as this story is based on a graphic novel, but this movie (attacked is a bit of a strong word, but I'm going to use it anyways) attacked restrictions of freedom, corrupt priests, and taking away rights "for your protection," specifically from terrorists and viruses. They even showed a news clip about Avian flu. And they were definately supporting homosexuals and freedom of speech. So how many anti-Bush/republican sentiments have we got there?

"We have to do raids and beat and torture people, with the majority's consent, so that we can keep you safe from terrorists" sounds an awful lot to me like "we have to do wire taps and beat and torture people when we interrogate them to keep you safe from the terrorists." But maybe that's just me.

I loved it. I'm not even that into politics, but I loved every second of it.

And one guy's name was Rookwood. /Random Harry Potter reference.

Then I went to Erin's for cake and fun with Tiffany and Ross. Erin, your family always has been, is, and always will be, awesome.

"A revolution without dancing is a revolution not worth having."

"All you have are your little knives. We have guns."
"No, what you have are bullets, and the hope that when your guns are empty I will no longer be standing."

It was SO GOOD. Like 1984 meets Robin Hood meets Phantom of the Opera.

On which note, he 1.wore a mask 2.took the girl to his underground lair of crazy, which was full of stolen art and furniture 3.was sort of obsessed with music there 4.was disfigured 5.was an outcast from society 6.murdered people 7.broke mirrors and 8.wouldn't let the girl he loved take his mask off.

There were more, but I'm too lazy to list them now.
