* Can I just say that the DVD extras bite? As in, there aren't any? I mean, I got the two-disc thing and it was like, "Here's the six scenes in IMAX, except you're watching this on a TV so it kind of doesn't help, and here's Hans Zimmer talking about the music." Thanks...? I mean, I wasn't disappointed because I had already heard that the extras sucked and what I really wanted was the movie itself--the whole chase with the truck is so awesome it still makes me giggle--but I just wanted to officially register that complaint.
** I have to add that Elizabeth is the first doll I think I've ever gotten that looked better in person than in the picture. I seriously will have to borrow that camera again and do a little photoshoot.
And then today there was MOAR CHRISTMAS SHOPPING and then I sat down with my Dark Knight DVD and basically skipped around and watched all my favorite parts, which... really are the whole movie, I guess, but I felt like watching them out of order?
(I did not, however, get werewolf cupcakes. This must be rectified next year.)
But for whatever reason, I'm really tired, so I just wanted to post a couple of things and catch up on the rest tomorrow, I guess:
I meant to post this days ago, but better late than never--an Overheard in New York link from dduane:
Conductor: Hello, and welcome to the Hogwarts Express. This is platform 9 3/4, and we will be leaving shortly for Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Preteen holding Harry Potter book, to suit holding Harry Potter book: Oh my god! I knew they would come for me!
Suit holding Harry Potter book, to himself: I did too.
'Wolverine' Trailer: See Wolvering & Friends Do Everything Imaginable; Breaking Down The New ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Trailer. I'm not sure what's going on with that first headline, but I feel like this movie should, in fact, involve a shitload of wolvering.
EXCLUSIVE: We Interview J.J. Abrams And Unveil A New ‘Star Trek’ Banner!
First 22 minutes of 'Watchmen' screened.
‘Blade’ Helmer Set for a Reinvention of ‘The Crow.’ Really? We need this? And I'm not even assuming that it's cursed from the get-go.
Rumor: Billy Zane's The Phantom is Getting a Sequel?! REALLY? WE NEED THIS?
Lucian Wolfs Out in New Underworld Pic; New 'Underworld: Rise of the Lycans' Poster.
Twilight sequel marches on: BEN BARNES FOR ARO? WHAT? I mean, I would totally be okay with more eye candy, since God knows I'm not there for fine cinema. It's just that I always imagined Aro as a low-rent Dumbledore type. Go back and read all his dialogue in a Dumbledore voice! YOU CANNOT UNSEE THE DUMBLEVAMP.
And shouldn't Barnes be off filming Dawn Treader somewhere? Somewhere very tanned? I have a bad feeling about this.
And finally, via duncatra: Celine Dion is amazing. No, SHE IS. WATCH IT.
