Finally went to the movies today. I can now say that I have a geek-crush on Tony Stark from Iron Man. <3 I enjoyed the movie greatly.

I did learn something very important today.

Even if you go to the bathroom before you leave the house, you will have to go again an hour into the movie. :( But I held it until after the credits. \o/

If you haven't already seen the movie, you need to wait until the end of the credits. :|

So, [ profile] davitant is coming to visit this weekend. In preparation, I requested the entire weekend off. This is going to be the first time I've had both Saturday and Sunday off since... um... D*Con last September? I'm a wee bit excited. We're going to go do touristy things in New York, since Jeffry's never really done much. Sure, he's spent a few days there, but we were always rushing around to meet someone at a given time. We have plans to go to the Museum of Natural History and to the Metropolitan Museum. (Sadly, that's a total of $35 if we pay the recommended fees. On the other hand, they're recommended fees, not required. But I would feel guilty not paying full price.)

Sadly, this weekend is also Hogsmeade at Hogwarts_Elite. Since Jeffry's train is coming in somewhere in the 11:30-12:30 timeframe, depending which one he makes, I've got a few hours to whip out some of the contests. 'Twill be interesting, I'm sure. Gotta remember to do the game sheets and trivia contests first. *nodnod*

So after yesterday's intellectual >_> film, I decided today was a day for a goofy-ass comedy.

And Mr. Bean's Holiday fit that mold perfectly. :D

Goofy-ass it was.

And I got to watch it in a theater completely empty except for myself! Which meant that I could talk out loud and not have to worry about distracting anyone.

I enjoyed it. T'was exactly what I needed. Even if there was a preview for that stupid Water Horse movie. :x

Apparently my days off are turning into movie days. Today, I (finally) watched Howl's Moving Castle, which is the latest Miyazaki film, which just happens to be based on a novel by one of my favorite authors. I <3 Diana Wynne Jones like it's nobody's business. :waggle

I must say that I highly enjoyed the movie. It's been long enough since I read the book that I'd forgotten almost all of the details, so it was fresh to me again. And now I'm looking at my bookshelf and trying to find the book. I am worried because I do not see it, but it's probably in the back row behind the Harry Potters.

Um. Calcifer is by far my favorite character in the movie. He cracks enough wise to amuse me, but there's a mystery to him, too. Oh, and the Witch of the Waste in the second half of the movie amuses me, as well. She's just a bitch in the first half, though. :|

I have seen complaints that Miyazaki turns the book into a big political commentary on war, but that's just his style. He tends to pick a different cause and wax on it in every film. *shrug*

All told, I liked it. And now I have added another book to my To-Be-Read pile. As if it wasn't big enough. *rolleyes*
