30 Days, Day 2

Favorite movie.

Oh hell, why don't you ask me to pick my favorite son? Wait, I could probably do that most days. The answer depends on who's being the bigger jackass. As far as movies go, I have two favorites. I'm not sure I'll ever be able to put one above the other.

The Departed. If you've seen it, you may think you know why I love it. It's bulging with the F bomb and that bomb is so beautifully dropped in the most creative and foul ways - pure brilliance. Also there's Leo. That's all I can say about that since my husband reads this blog. This movie is also responsible for my girl crush on Vera Farmiga. Throw in Jack Nicholson, Matt Damon, and Mark Wahlberg directed by  Martin Scorsese and really, you just can't go wrong.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Yes, even though it's Swedish, subtitled in English. This movie is fantastic. Don't be prick American and refuse to read subtitles because you will be missing out. Also, be warned, goth chicks might start looking sexy to you after you see it because Noomi Rapace is hawt! And read the book first. You'll appreciate it that much more (and be prepared for the truly disturbing yet absolutely necessary to really 'get' Lisbeth rape scene). I know Hollywood is making a US version and so far I'm happy with the casting but they've got A LOT to live up to and I sincerely hope they don't fuck it up. This version is available on DVD in the US now so GO GET IT!

Tomorrow, favorite television show.

So, I made it two days into the 30 and decided to end my blog altogether. That has got to be some kind of record.

It's been coming (didn't think it'd be today), and I'm totally okay with it. Still looking forward to keeping up with you on here and on FB.

And I totally want to see the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo now.

The Departed was one of those movies made you scream, "NOOOOOOO!!!" at the very end. Definitely one of the way better ones!

I really thought that I would like The Departed because I LOVE the entire cast, but I'm sorry, I really didn't like the movie. I was SO depressed watching it. I don't need any more depression in my life.
Haven't seen the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and my book club is reading it for next month. I just started it and can't really get into it, but I'll keep trying to because you said it's good.
