Bio:
You can tell from the scars on my arms and cracks in my hips and the dents in my car and the blisters on my lips that I'm not the carefullest of girls If it were any colder I could disengage If I were any older I could act my age -From The Dresden Doll's "Girl Anachronism" I like playing my guitar and jamming with friends. I draw morbid, obscure stuff in my sketchbook. I write stories that hopefully no one will ever read. I was once a blonde. I love being Italian. I sing like an idiot in the shower, even if there's no music. I hate shopping at the mall. I'm scared to death of freight trains. I love movies in different languages. That's....about it.

Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire

I'm a huge fan of Danny Boyle, so naturally I enjoyed this movie. The story was fascinating and gripping, great acting, awesome soundtrack, and a fast-paced visual style made this one of the most engrossing movies I've seen this year, even if it does bear some suspicious resemblances to City of God.

Watchmen

Watchmen

(2009)

Better than I expected, but still no where close to the original graphic novel. It was almost so faithful that it was annoying and uninspired. It seemed that Zack Snyder was so obsessed with being as close to the source material as possible that he left himself no room for any artistic license or creativity, giving the viewer just a frame by frame interpretation of Watchmen in a nutshell. The casting was passable. I loved Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach and Jeffrey Dean Morgan was a spitting image of the Comedian, also Billy Crudup as the soft spoken super-human Dr. Manhattan was also rather enjoyable. But Malin Akerman was bland as Silk Spectre II and the character of Night Owl II/ Dan Drieberg was simply reduced to a nerdy impotent schlub who can only get his kicks when he puts on his costume. I also had some problems with that lengthy and rather awkward sex scene along with the bits of slow-mo violence that grew rather tiresome after the third or fourth blood spurt. Not a bad film, but not a great one either.

It really pisses me off that this gorgeous film was totally snubbed by the Oscars. My anger slightly eased up after I found out that Michael Shannon (who was awesome) was nominated for Best Supporting Actor, but no nominations for Kate or Leo? Where is the love?

The Dark Knight

Excellent, sets the standard for any "comic book movie". With its fabulous performances, especially from the late Heath Ledger, and taught, gripping story; The Dark Knight was definitely the best film of the summer and arguably, one of the best of 2008.
