So, within the last week I went to see both The Hobbit and Les Misérables with my sister. The verdict is The Hobbit could've been shorter, and Les Mis could've used a bit less of Russell Crowe. Er.

I liked both a lot, actually; The Hobbit a bit more than Les Misérables.

I think what hit home upon seeing The Hobbit was how much I missed Middle-Earth.

Behold! [insert place name here]! )

So. Yes. I'm looking forward to the next one.

Upon collecting the tickets she booked online at the counter, my sister whispered, "They know how to pronounce 'Les Misérables'!"

Upon seeing the trailer, we have also decided to watch Jurassic Park. In 3D. Whenever it is it's coming out. Reaction upon seeing the trailer: WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT'S BEEN TWENTY YEARS.

I was also planning to post an entry about books but I haven't managed to get to it! Last month was a great month for books -- I read two books I absolutely loved: The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness, which is the type of book that leaves your heart thumping and makes you feel dazed the next morning because you couldn't put the book down and sleep, and To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis, which was a lot of things but mostly hilarious.

So. What I did over the weekend.

I finished this bag! Took me two weekends, actually, since I wasn't really concentrating on it -- it has been a mixture of reading and wrangling some stupid cross-browser CSS issues and watching TV and avoiding parties.

pictures and some rambling )


Also ended up watching bits and pieces of Infernal Affairs I to III this weekend! Siblings were marathoning through them; I just popped by now and then to admire Tony Leung. I knew that The Departed followed the film closely (and I had watched Infernal Affairs before watching The Departed though it had been years earlier) but I was kinda marvelling at how even the dialogue was almost exact at times.

I still like Infernal Affairs better than the Hollywood remake, XD.
