Ok I just saw the first teaser trailer for the burton alice in wonderland film coming out march of next year, and holy crap it was so awesome looking!
It' like alice movie I always wanted to see and never could. and I've seen ALOT of alice movies over the years cause I love love Alice in Wonderland. I am still so amazed this movie is even happening. I mean my God, Johnny Depp? Burton? ALICE IN WONDERLAND? It's like 3 of my most favorite things ever, in one place and helena bonham carter is in it too! PLEASE TELL ME SHE IS THE QUEEN OF HEARTS SHE WOULD OWN THAT ROLE SO HARD. I'm surprised it took Burton this long to do this because Alice is gothic horror and that's been burton's niche since the 1980's. Perhaps he was waiting for the right moment?
Minor nitpicks though, I am not crazy about all the CGI I am seeing lately, not necessarily just in this movie but in general. and Ranting in 5..4..3..2..1 ) That being said I believe Burton's intention is to blend animation with live action in this adaptation so that would make what I'm saying kind of irrelevant to the film.

On that note I want to talk about My favorite Alice in Wonderland movie of ALL TIME (at least until I see burton's adaptation). Jonathan Miller's Alice in Wonderland. It was actually a weird conceptual play originally. It was filmed in 1966, and directed by Jonathan Miller who I am told is/was famous in UK theatre but I have no idea if that's true cause I didnt know he or this film existed until 4-5 years ago when I watched this in I cant remember if it was English or Creative Writing class, possibly the latter.more on this film here ) As a book adaptation it's rather avante garde actually and radical. But as a film that's inspired by alice it really couldnt be anymore perfect. and I would even dare say it better captures the essence of the Alice books than any other adaptation has.

Here is a clip of on YT from the film to give everyone an idea of what I'm going on about here.

it's not the most surreal scene in the film or the best scene but it gives a good idea of the tone.

Tv: Supersizers in Ancient rome! Cue excited and most irrelevant babbling )

Leverage 03: Great episode! It's so great how they are changing it up this season and messing with the core formula, in the last episode the team got caught out and in this one they go about securing the mark in a much different and IMO more hilarious way than usual.
Did you just make a guy's nose bleed with the power of your mind? )

I will wrap up my post with this: http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii243/n1oora/19897467.jpg There should be a law against two people looking that gorgeous and perfect together, really. *jumping up and down with excitement for GG S3*

Is it September yet?

OMG what? there is a Supersizers lj community!? That is AWESOME! *immediately joins*

and You guys have me convinced! I am so watching North & South now...or rather after I finish up Gossip Girl S2. but soon oh yes :D Speaking of GG, Just when I think Blair cant get any more crazy or Chuck cant get anymore hot. it HAPPENS. This show is basically the best thing ever, even though it can be really dumb sometimes and has no concept of the time space continuum or basic physics and Dan is still a huge douchebag but it doesnt matter cause Serena is always awesome no matter how many sucky bfs she ends up with. and one day I may actually say something coherent and somewhat profound about this show, but today is not that day.

Anyway, flist I need your help! now that I am part of a certain comm, I have access to all sorts of bbc period drama goodness so I ask you oh wise and wonderful flist. What BBC period dramas (or any kind of period dramas really I aint picky. but let's stay within europe for the mean time) would you guys recommend to me? Dont worry about if I've seen something or not before just rec me your favorites!

Leverage 02: this week's leverage was wonderful as only Leverage can be <3 I loved that they got CAUGHT in the middle of their con! That never happens and it startled the bejeezus out of me and I started to wonder wtf is gonna happen now. I also totally worried for eliot and I did not want to see him in pain ;_; no not his beautiful yet rugged face! But really what was the best about them getting caught was HOW they got caught and by who. More squee under the cut! ) ILU show <3 and ILU parker for putting a SAXOPHONE in that guy's trunk. Girl you are so crazy <3

I wanna take a minute to talk about a period movie I saw recently called I am Dina
Which is easily one of the most fucked up things I've seen in a long time. but not THE most fucked up movie I ever saw cause THAT honor will always be reserved to the movie "Osama" which I only recommend if you enjoy feeling like someone stabbed you in the face for several hours after it's over and being haunted by the sounds of creaky buckets for 3 nights in a row. *cough*
Anyway, Dina herself is really talented and brilliant and gorgeous. She could ride horses, keep accounts and manage her money and property very well. She sometimes wore men's clothes but could kick it in ladies frocks too and she was a damn fine musician. Unfortunately, Dina is also bugfuck CRAZY. Which is actually kind of awesome cause it means she does stuff like beat the shit out of her dad for slapping her, writes coded love letters using numbers/math, stays up all night playing cello or fucking her way too old husband, throws his dead corpse down a cliff in a blizzard, nearly commits suicide, falls in love with a Russian anarchist, later kills him AND quite possibly rapes the stable boy/man..several times. It's basically a puccini opera combined with a gothic horror novel combined with various "avante garde" ideas from a hash smoking NYU film student.Which is to say it was AWESOME and crazy depressing and bizarrely compelling all at once. )

Well that wraps up this post! good day to you all XOXO (I will do this until I stop watching gossip girl methinks)
