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.

Dead Ringers
First viewing - Aug. 27th
So I go to rent these movies, and I'm looking for Grave of the Fireflies because it's been on my list for a while now. Alas I come to find out it was stolen, but their other location does have a copy. I didn't feel like making the trek to the other location, so I decided to just drop my anime picks for this month and rent this instead. I'd actually intended to wait until October for this one, but now I'm glad I didn't because it's not exactly a horror film even though it kinda is. It's definitely a Cronenberg film and as such I really dug it. Plus Jeremy Irons is beyond Amazing as he plays the twins at the film's center. The whole thing is interesting & thought-provoking, and while I'm not sure I'd buy a copy of it I'd definitely watch it again...like once every decade.

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.

Man, I've never really paid any attention to Metallica but all in all Master of Puppets is a great album now that I've listened to it. I'm still not that into Metallica but I do like some of their songs, there's like 5 really good songs.

And yes, Leonard Cohen's voice is spectacular so when I heard Come Healing on Sons of Anarchy I did fell in love with the song.

I feel like all the new music I hear these days is from a TV show or a movie. I don't really listen to the radio and I'm not that active in finding new music so I might just hear a great song in a show like Sons of Anarchy and listen to other songs from the artist. Like Metallica suddenly got into my head when I watched all the Paradise Lost documentaries.

Don't worry mate, I'm not about to shut out Listal forever. In fact I might even pop in for special event reviews if I feel the need -- and I do actually have a couple of movies in mind I'd like to cover.

But of course, my priorities are just a lot different. Reviews consumed so much of my life and I almost feel liberated now that I've gotten out of the "review every movie you see" hobby, making it a huge Pandora's box that I'd like to remain closed.

Tell you what, it was hell being locked up at base for weeks at a time. We were given day leave after the first 5 weeks of training, for only 6.5 hours. I went straight to the cinema for X-Men and Godzilla. For my next day leave, I saw How to Train Your Dragon 2. The cinema on base is bloody worthless -- it only received Godzilla a fortnight ago -- but I managed to catch Edge of Tomorrow. And now that I'm home, I've so far seen 4 movies: 22 Jump Street, Apes, Deliver Us From Evil, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Typical me :P

Take care!

It had recently came to my attention that Weezer actually came out with a song worth listening to. I stumbled upon an article about someone saying that it was a good Weezer song and I didn't believe it because I thought it was going to be another one of their typical modern songs, but then when I listened to it I was surprised with what I got. It actually sounds like they are going back to their original style of music and it sounds good.

Christ, I almost forgot Listal exists...

Yes I'm back. But sorry, I'm not going to contribute in any substantial fashion anymore. I can't even be bothered maintaining my annual movie lists. I'm just a different person.

I'm still a recruit. I came home today for the beginning of my five weeks of convalescence leave. I fractured my foot in 3 places out bush, and continued training for 3 weeks before I even realised it. 15 days in hospital, MRI scan, orthopaedic surgeon appointment, and sent to the rehab platoon for 2 weeks before they finally sent me home...

And now here I am. Hear me roar.

I did watch Sunset boulevard but somehow it didn't impress me much, may be I because I saw some thing similar to it before or the mood was bad, I might change my opinion upon revisiting it.
Paper moon, looks interesting, I am going to watch it then. :)

thanks for stopping by, really appreciate it. :)

Just want to let you know that there will be a new Richard Linklater movie coming out on July 11th this year. Not sure if you already knew about it, but I wanted to let you know about it because I didn't see it on your want to watch list or anticipated movies list.

I watched anatomy of a murder yesterday night and it was tremendous fun. I didn't check the summary or anything so was very good to see the plot unfold. The script was tight and performances were great. I didn't know George C. Scott was in it so it was a great little surprise. Overall, I loved it. Thanks for the recommendation in your list. I would have not watched it otherwise.

I actually saw The Double on US iTunes so if you're in to the whole renting a movie digitally -thing it's totally available to you. Alas, that definately is a movie for the theaters due to the fantastic sound design and music, so if you can hold on, just wait it out. I kind of regret I watched it like that instead of watching it at a press screening.

Though, fair warning, it is totally unlike anything Ayoade has made thus far. As in, it actually isn't funny. At all. Or well, maybe for a joke or two.

I enjoyed Pacific Rim when I watched it in the theater, but I have forgotten most of characters and plot already and can't really see myself watching it again - Godzilla on the other hand I am sure to watch again and will probably buy at some point, and I will look forward to future sequels, which I do hope include more monster fighting and less dopey humans who think they can stop a 100 foot monster with a handgun :)
