In Search of Inspiration

Pia and I finished all the things we had to do for this project so I spent most of yesterday afternoon wandering aimlessly around the web in search of inspiration to re-design my website. I’ve got a number of ideas floating around in my head – it’s just getting them to make sense on the page is what’s difficult.

My favorite discovery is Creattica, an excellent resource for creativity. I spent a couple of hours reading through the entire collection of posts (all 26 pages of them). I’m totally in love with this tea set.

I re-watched The Cutting Edge last night. Yes it’s predictable and kinda cheesy but I adore it. The chemistry between D.B. Sweeney and Moira Kelly totally makes the movie. I have two words for you…TOE PICK!

In a bit I’m going to do some grocery shopping – I’m making a mango dessert for dinner – and then it’s back to cleaning house.

P.S. I’m still a bit bummed that it’s a few more episodes till the end of Stargate Atlantis. *sigh*

It's A Bird, It's A Plane…

Pia and I have seen Superman Returns TWICE already and I’m itching to see it again!

It’s a wonderful movie – Bryan Singer’s love for the story is really evident and though the movie is nearly 3 hours long I barely felt it pass.

And yes, Brandon Routh is great as Clark Kent/Superman. I never thought I’d say this but he has such sexy hair :)

Bloodrayne is the WORST videogame movie adaptation

I’m not stating that lightly. The only good thing I can say about Bloodrayne is that it is only slightly better than The Ninth Gate which I found to be atrocious and a waste of movie fest time.

And it’s not even that Bloodrayne is soooo bad that it’s good – it’s so bad, it’s laugh out loud funny. The storyline made no sense, the lines were corny, the actors looked dead and there were some pretty good actors in the cast.

I mean Michael Madsen, Ben Kingsley! WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?

Kristanna Loken who made a wonderful Terminatrix was terrible here – totally lacking in coordination and her court jester-type pants were so distracting.

Though most distracting thing is a toss up between Michelle Rodriguez’s accent and Ben Kingsley’s right hand man who looked kinda cross-eyed that instead of feeling scared of the evil henchman we were all laughing.
