Expressive Eyes

Ok, yes, I like Viggo Mortensen.
A lot.
But it's not just because people say he is sexy etc
It is more than that
I have read a lot of interviews and things he has said about himself, and he is the TYPE of person I really would like.
His April 2009 interview was one of the best for learning more about him as he is right now.
I notice the similarity of thinking and ways of being.
He says this:
"I don't like people who get into fights about football - or anything else. But I share the passion of the fans for this team, that's for sure."
http://www.brego.net/uploaded_images/Viggo-Mortensen-American-Yakuza-743092.jpg
When asked:
Do you work on relationships?

He says:
"I don't always. When there is conflict it's good to step away, even for five minutes, because you could say terrible things that you can't take back, so it's best to walk away,"

Then he says (which surprised me and shocked me but I was glad he was honest)

" If I am sucked in and don't walk away I become very destructive,"

Then he goes on.
"I say things that are personal, that I don't really mean, because if somebody hurts you, you want to hurt them instinctively, go for something you know is going to really upset them."

I was glad he was honest but then I felt a little down. Because when someone does this, just the one time, I am usually done with them. I try really hard to watch what I say to people especially in high stress situations so someone who hauls off and goes for the jugular?
This I can't deal with.

It goes on and is better.
He is so open.
When asked if he has to have the last word in an argument
"Only if I get really incensed. It usually has to do with fairness, or if I feel I've been cornered or misrepresented, then I will lash out.
That is a little similar to me...


He goes on
It's good to have the presence of mind to say: 'Can I call you back? Let me take a break and go for a walk.' Always better."

About relationships he says this...I was so surprised because it is EXACTLY what I would say.

"As soon as it's going well you think: 'We've cracked it.'

It's not going to stay that way.

That person that you love so much and understands you so well, suddenly the next day they say something, and you think: 'They don't really know me well at all.'"


And is that most important to you - to be known by somebody?
That somebody really gets you?
I am cautious about it, but when I connect strongly I want to be honest with that person, risky as it is, and I want them to be honest with me...


On forgiveness he says this....It's exactly how I feel. Try as hard as I might to be better about it. It's the same.

"There are certain things that are said and done and I can forgive, but for my own good I can't associate with that person any more.

'I don't trust you, but I can forgive you.'

I can do that.

Because some things you can't take back.

Some things that have been said, they hurt, they linger. That's in everybody's life."

More movies

Sis sent me some more movies! I get them every Saturday!
Yay for sisters!
The Duchess was a lovely movie and I still like Ralph Fiennes.
He is so able to not go for the OBVIOUS when playing a character.
http://www.snitchseeker.com/gallery/albums/userpics/63812/ab2612174582_d3fa8fe9f5_b.jpg
There is no clear baddie or goodie when it comes to his characters.
http://www.aceshowbiz.com/images/still/the_duchess38.jpg
He plays them more complex and you can actually get drawn into him.
He is the best

The Proposal was cute! :)
Ryan Reynolds is always so funny...
I like when a couple is fun.
http://dailymoxie.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/sandyryan041008.jpg
It means they are friends and that's the most important thing

wow

I am in love with

Corinne, Volume 1 (of 2) by Madame de Staƫl


I can't get enough of reading it.
I don't know anyone who has ever read it so I have no one to talk to about it.
;(

I wish there was somebody.

Boxed In

We went to that place and had to get on the elevator to go to that fun place on the roof that was freezing cold.
On the way there....

Tee hee (us in the elevator- the mirror above)

Funniest Sweet Wedding

It was FUN

It should be about the love and the laughter and the FUN!

OMG


I didn't think this existed

But someone did it and its the best.

I love the office

Look at That

Look at all of them

So happy

So fun.

Jim and Pam are the most fun couple ever.

Trains

Well I went into "foreign film and needing to be dead alone' mode...so I went to that tiny cinema by the train tracks and watched Closely Watched Trains.
http://www.solongvhs.com/photos/uncategorized/2007/05/22/closely_watched_trains.jpg
There were 4 other people at the movie.
It was dark and I was happy.
I like the movie for the cinematography, and the crispness of the film.
http://lh5.ggpht.com/oohdahling/R1DbI-AViUI/AAAAAAAABxg/lYRdK3Z7pjw/s400/snow+closely+watched+trains.jpg
For the straightforward and simple acting and script.
I just liked the simplicity and everything was as it should have been.
I felt alone watching it and that was the point.
I identified with the characters but didn't get overly attached and I was glad.
I needed to rest.

Here goes

The Shape of Things:
Made me Like Neil Labute (director) more. In some places this show really dragged. Could have made better use of long shots, but what so I know i am not a filmmaker. Acting wwas fine but something about the movie seemed a little bit amateur.
However I liked the premise and the 'surprise' at the near end.
It was pretty sad.
Rating on a scale of 1-10 = 5.9
The_Shape_of_Things_Cover.jpg image by markhill66



Bride Wars

It was cute. It was just a cute chick flick. But I liked it so much because it wasn't a typical story and even though the hi-jinx were over the op- it was sweet
Rating 6.5 for cuteness
http://newsblaze.com/pix/2009/0114/pix/Bride-Wars-Movie.jpg


Disfigured
I didn't know what they were trying to say during this movie but I liked the friendship tha developed and I liked seing Deidra Edwars on camera. I just liked watching her. I also liked Staci Lawrence and but for them being there this would seem like an afterschool special that I don't really want to watch.
I liked the subject matter but it seemed to jump all over the place :(
Rating for development of characters and their friendship 6.4
http://curvylife.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/dsfg4.jpg

My Best Friend's Girl
Crass and weird. But you know what some guys actually behave in these crass ways (and I am not talking Dane cook I am talking the guys in the film who hire him. SO I am gonna add 1.5 to whatever rating I give this
Rating for MINDLESS entertainment 4.5
Overall rating 6
