The fact that this is even a thing that exists in the world makes me possibly happier than the film itself ever could. Let me just say, if this movie had existed when I was a kid I would be a very different person today.
Spoilers/Squee/Complaints/Thoughts. Lots of Thoughts. )

Too lazy to find pictures here. Hell, yesterday I was too lazy to post at all!
Big Fish )
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory )
Corpse Bride )
Sweeney Todd )
In conclusion, I am ridiculous and my taste in films has not changed all that much since I was fifteen. Or twelve. Or five, for that matter.

Today [livejournal.com profile] lufwood_emilius joined me for Batman, because she is an excellent person like that! Her Thoughts were mostly inside jokes about the Great Mouse Detective, though, so they don't particularly feature prominently in my analysis.

Batman )
Edward Scissorhands )
Tomorrow: Batman Returns & Nightmare Before Christmas!

So uh I made the excellent and not at all ridiculous and timewasty decision to spend Reading Week watching through every Tim Burton film, in order, and sharing my Thoughts with the Internet. (Because the Internet totally cares.) Anyone who's in TO right now and wants to partake in these shenanigans, let me know?

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure )
Beetlejuice )

Tomorrow, 1989 Batman and Edward Scissorhands!

1. Post about something that made you happy today, even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for eight days without fail.


Saw 9! It is really gorgeous, and I say that as someone who's not particularly fond of computer animation. The character and set designs are all amazing, and the textures are fucking perfect. I couldn't get over how much 9's zipper looked like an actual zipper. I would say it is about on par with James and the Giant Peach, overall. I love all the characters ridiculous amounts (well, not particularly 1, but even he had his moments), although I wish 2 had had more screentime.

I think it's a very good thing to teach kids about the dangers of self-replicating AIs at an early age. Kids watching this movie right now might actually be in a position where "Don't build an intelligent robot that can reproduce itself" could be a useful lesson someday! ...Uh, I might possibly read too much SF. But this really is something I worry about, okay!


It is, though, a lot sadder than most PG-rated films! This is a warning for anyone considering taking a small child to see it.

Um. I am possibly considering a paper comparing 9 to Frankenstein? They are about the dangers of science! I'm studying Frankenstein in Roots of Modern Culture this year, so it might be a legitimate essay topic.
