Darcification!

*Blissful sigh* just finished watching the final episode of Pride and Prejudice with the family- I LOVE it, so good! Mr Darcy, Mr Bingley, Lizzie, her awful Mother, oh pure gold. Anyone who hasn't seen it, go out and borrow/rent/buy it NOW.

Same goes for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory- better than the original one many times over, a great nite out for the whole family :P Seriously, I loved it, money well spent- so full of one liners, and Johnny Depp's great in the role. It struck me how the (semi-main, as well as Charlie) main character was thought of as so wonderful, when he's really as flawed and eccentric as the rest of us... don't know if that really describes what I mean. I guess there was a fascinating depth to the character (as much as you can have in a kids movie), contrasted with Charlie (who was a LOT more believable, sincere and likeable than that blonde kid in the first film)... Charlie was kind of the adult in the relationship (and I don't mean that to sound Michael Jacksonish, which many people have been saying about how Johnny (that's right, first name basis) did Willy Wonka) There's my profound insight :P...And so full of one liners, anyone who'd going to see it take a pad and pen to record them! lol...

Done too much writing this past wk and a half (btw Psych exam today- only 2 hrs long rather than 3, actually finished before the end which was pleasantly unusual for me!) so here are some cartoon things I found (courtesy of Emma C -> see link for her brand spankin' new blog) which were pretty funny (I'd better say that they're from
http://www.biggercheese.com/index.php?comic=521 (and others)as long as you know many of the other one's are dodge, I'm not endorsing them!!) Hmm go to show my warped sense of humour ;)


<-- Brief explanation, there's some 80's movie (can't remember the name) with that robot... and surprise, he says 'Number 5 is alive!!'

And to finish off, a verse that I was looking at last nite, partly from this daily Bible reading thing I do called Daily Bread:

'O Lord, you have searched me and you know me... you perceive my thoughts from afar...Before a word on my tongue You know it completely...Where can I go from your spirit? Where can I go from your presence?... I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made... All the days orgained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be... Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any way offensive in me, and lead me in the way everlasting'. Psalm 139 (bits of it)

"And in that moment I realised; I must find a... heir/hair". "

pride and prejudice is so awesome..but the new one DISGUSTS me...keira knightly as elizabeth bennet..are they on drugs????

chris said...

the movie was called short circuit . great movie

jesster said...

thanks for that chris, i saw it ages ago and still remember it as pure 80's gold :P

And Em I know, I saw an ad for it the other day! I'm interested to see how Keira Knightly will go with it actually, I reckon she could be alright. Whoever plays Mr Darcy, on the other hand- NOONE, i repeat NOONE can do it better than Colin Firth.
