Let’s have a chit-chat

Posted Nov 04 2009 10:06pm

 

Okay, I seem to be on a roll with the mental health related posts.  Mustn’t let that be the only thing I write/think about though, huh?

So…in the interest of light and shade and contrast I shall ramble about something else, not sure what yet, but something. else.

Films, perhaps.  I watch a lot of films.  I like films.  I like all sorts of films.  There is a film for every mood, every whim and everyday.  Sometimes I can’t find the film, the one that will perfectly accompany my mood or change my mood if I so wish.  Just because I can’t lay my hands on it or think of it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist though. 

Randomly off the top of my head…I like Betty Blue.  I like Gia (recently watched).  I like Little Miss Sunshine and Ginger Snaps and Taken and Fatal Attraction and Nadja and Juno and Knocked Up and Zoolander and the Bourne films.  I like Madagascar 1 and 2.  I like the Rocky films.  I like El Orfanto.  I liked REC.  I loved and still love The Client.  I like a lot of the Batman films, especially the first Keaton one and Batman Forever and the Christian Bale ones are cool too.  I liked Schindler’s List though it gnawed at my heartstrings.  I liked The English Patient because Ralph Fiennes looked fucking sexy in it and I liked  The End of the Affair (same reason).

Johnny Depp requires a new paragraph.  What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and Benny and Joon and others I probably can’t recall right now.  Pirates of the Caribbean.  Sleepy Hollow.

Demolition Man and Speed and Matrix and Miss Congeniality, all of which have either Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves, or both in them - I like not for that reason, but the old cognitive stairway links one to the other as I’m thinking.

Dangerous Liaisons.  Cruel Intentions.  Dracula, with Gary Oldman.

Christ, there are so many great movies and hundreds I’ve forgotten to include.  I’ll kick myself over the next few days when I remember others, How could I have forgotten to mention that one?  But you do forget, so I guess my shins will suffer some widespread bruising.

A Beautiful Mind.  Shine.

Shrek.   That was genius.

Growing up, Labyrinth, Beverly Hills Cop, Lethal Weapon, A Little Mermaid.

Pulp Fiction, Secretary, The Usual Suspects, Kill Bill sequence.

Wanted

Probably the most recent film I’ve seen.  Stars James McAvoy and Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman (is there any film that doesn’t have him in it, somewhere?)

It’s really funny.  Assassins that learn how to bend bullets.  It’s not meant to be funny, but it is.  Was still watchable though, slick special effects and all.  Oh and the “Loom of Fate” should really have its own credit at the end – it’s basically this HUGE machine for weaving material that occasionally misses a stitch and if one decodes the missing stitches a name will be revealed.  The name of a person that Fate has chosen for the assassins to kill, in order to restore balance and rid the world of the nastiest people.  Okay, so there’s a Loom of Fate, there are the inevitable Monks of many years ago, the weavers who first began to utilise the loom in this way – it’s always monks, for some reason, I think Hollywood believes they add gravitas to frothy plots.  Or something.  The secret group of assassins formed from the core of those first monks and passed down the generations is called…wait for it… The Fraternity.  Watch it if you want a laugh and also some fine totty in the form of good looking McAvoy and Jolie.

Well I think I’ve said enough for now.  Quick life update: still feel like I’m not particularly stable in mood and energy.  I’m having better days and worse days and trying to rebuild my stamina to something approaching what it was a few months ago (when I was still not perfect, but better than I had been).  It has been a setback.  I’m going to try to get exercising again as I haven’t felt up to a proper cardio session in a few weeks, I’ve been too drained.  I’ll probably have to build it back slowly, one day do ten minutes, the next day do a bit more, something dreary like that.  Anyway, as long as things get better rather than worse I’ll accept that.
