Last night I watched the most beautiful movie, MirrorMask. I wasn't even planning to hire it, because I thought Noel might like it too and we could watch it together sometime, but I ended up getting it anyway (I could get a new release film for free, with all the others I was hiring). I fell in love with it, so much. The story, the cinematography, the imagery, just took me away. I'm not very good at reviewing movies, but every now and then a film will touch me, pull at my heartstrings. This was one of them.

Oh. What a dreamy, magical movie. I am in love.

bah, i still haven't seen it yet. i went to a lecture neil gaiman gave last year, and he showed a clip from it and me and mum were so excited bcause we're sorta nerdy like that. then when it came out it was only shown at selected cinemas in big cities... so we never got to see it :( so now i'm really excited.. you just made my day! :D

I was looking forward to it as well, at the movies, and then I never really heard much about it's release, plus I think I was travelling at the time it was out over here. I was so excited to see it on the shelf last night, in the New Release section :) I'm just sad I could only have it for 1 night!

oh! i was totally going to recommend that to you and all the other eljay lovelies, but i got caught up in so much stuff that i forgot to post about it. i watched it a few weeks ago and showed someone the trailer last night. isn't it just so beautifully done? i loved the songs too, especially the one where they were dressing her up.

oh yes! The music was so haunting and beautiful and dreamy. The whole movie was like that, actually. I adored it :)

Very intriguing! I will have to check that out...what did you end up renting? (Today, I finally bought a set of Audrey Hepburn films - Sabrina, Breakfast at Tiffany's & Roman Holiday...I love and watch them too much so it just made sense. If you know of a way to get them onto my computer and uploaded somewhere, I am happy to send the files to you.)

I ended up getting (there was a deal on, 2 new releases & 4 weekly rentals for $10):

x. Mirrormask (of course)
x. Elizabethtown
x. Chasing Amy
x. The Virgin Suicides
x. Vanity Fair
x. Mists of Avalon (which is my very favourite book, I didn't even know there WAS a film based on the book so I was pretty excited to find it)

One day I need to have a classics day - I think they have them all at the video store, pretty cheap, so I will check them out for sure :) Thankyou for the offer though hon! ♥

how was vanity fair? always intriguing to me, but i heard it wasn't great, so i didn't rent it. did you like elizabethtown? (plus, the virgin suicides is soooo beautifully shot...love watching it purely for that reason.)

Scott bought that movie a month or two ago and it was a pretty interesting movie; I hadn't seen one done in that style before. I did really like the imagery. It was a great movie.

agreed! :)
I really want to buy it now, I never buy dvds usually, but this one is a must have, I think :)
