Another guest spot, and some movies

Yay, another guest blog.  Huzzah!  Stop by Zahir's Night-Tinted Glasses, and read my short story "Said the rattlesnake".  You should enjoy it.

In other news, I watched a whole bunch of movies this week.

[REC 2] was very good.  Better than the first one.  And both are way better than the American version, Quarantine.  By an extra few minutes of footage, [REC] was so good.  Because it explained what was going on.  Amazing.  [REC 2] makes the camera almost into a character all by itself.  And the ending....oh, how I loved the ending.

Unthinkable was also a movie with a great ending.  Nice and controversial, and makes you think a bit.  Loved how the characters played out.  You're left wondering who the real bad guy is.  At least, if you're like me, you do.

A Single Man was pretty interesting.  Character driven movie, with some very interesting choices made for the cinematography/directing.  The majority of the movie is a little desaturated, until the character was thinking about something that brought him out of his funk; then the colors sigh in, and it becomes vibrant.  It was brilliant.

Doctor Who continues to be awesome.  I loved this weeks episode with Vincent van Gogh.  (On the British schedule, that is.)  It was touching, without being sappy.

  1. Great story on Zahir's blog Raven!

    The new Doctor is growing on me. I still think he's a little on the young side, but I think the doctors have been getting steadily younger since the beginning. :-)
