About my collections

My collection can beat up your collection.

Currently reading whatever my daughter wants read to her. Hopefully one day soon she'll figure out how to read & I can read for myself again. Not that I don't enjoy reading to her, but I miss reading for me.

101 Dalmatians
Re-watch - March 15th
I took the kiddo with me to return our movie rentals & she wanted to get Pinocchio next. Well, it was checked out, so I suggested we try this one next & she was down for it. It was amusing to me to see her react to the events in this one, as she would often get worried about the puppies escaping to safety & cheer for them to get away from Cruella & her henchmen. In the end she really liked it. Now I haven't seen this since it was rereleased to theatres back in the '80s, and that was with my sister & our parents. Anyway, I still enjoyed it despite its predictability and overly simplified story. It's got some nice touches along the way, and I especially like the song about Cruella (which I'd somehow managed to forget). I might watch it again some time with my daughter, but I wouldn't go out of my way to watch it again for my own entertainment.

About me

A few notes to my fellow Listal users:


- If we have NOT interacted on here in some way (an exchange of votes, comments, messages, etc.) then I will DENY your friend request. That said, I'm always open to finding new people that share my interests, I just don't like adding people as friends when I have no idea who they are.
- I used to stop by everyone's profile to say thanks for votes, but lately it seems like people don't care much about that. So if you vote for something of mine, just know that it's appreciated & I thank you. I may still occasionally say thanks, but I'm not going to make a frequent habit of it anymore.
- I will definitely drop by your profile to discuss comments, unless you don't have a comments section where I can do so. In such cases I will most likely reply in a comment that follows yours.
- PLEASE only leave me comments to check out lists that you know I'd be interested in. And for the record I'm NEVER interested in lists of "hot" people, unless there's some content mocking them or something to make them interesting. I can find eye candy just fine if I want to, thanks.

Heh, I was just looking back on my list of films I wanted to see at the cinema but never will... Rocky 4 is on there. Funny, because I'm going to a Rocky 4 screening in April, with Dolph fucking Lundgren in attendance. I will be getting a meet and greet, a photo with him, and an autograph on top of the Q&A before the movie....

I'm probably more likely to post updates on Twatter about film stuff.

I can't say much except, nothing is confirmed. And I now own thousands of dollars worth of quality camera gear.

Thanks for the list vote and the comment. I would highly recommend The Oblong Box. Edgar Allen Poe & Vincent Price, what more could you ask for? :-)

Of course you can follow me on Twitter, that's sort of the point. I'm over at https://twitter.com/VierasTalo and my tweets are about 50/50 between English and Finnish. Finnish tweets pertain mostly to, well, Finnish stuff.

I also watched Black Mirror a few months back. I like it, though the concept to each episode seems more juicy than the execution. The second episode is great though. A solid example of gamification in real-world appliances. I still have yet to watch the Christmas episode though.

I've known about Birdman for ages, it's just that all I know is that it's supposed to be really really effin' good and everything I've seen people rave about it thus far has certainly kept up that trend.

Now, I have no doubts about whether or not I'd like Why Don't You Play In Hell? because Shion Sono is by far like among the top-5 Japanese directors I know of today. That being said, I have like three or four films of his in my shelf, unwatched, so I'll try working through that stuff before I go anywhere near something new from him.

Thank you! It is good to be back on Listal, I'm looking forward to tracking my movies again in 2015. I really missed that this past year, and there's something nice about being in a movie theater a couple times a month that I missed too.
I'm doing much better than I was, lots of stuff was going on this past 12 months, but that's life! I'm in my last semester of studies and I'm looking forward to graduating. I get a bachelor's degree in May and a teaching certificate in June, if not earlier. It's gonna be so great! I hope you're doing well too. It's weird seein who is here still and who isn't.
