Films, chit-chat, more films, more chit-chat

by Suw on December 1, 2003

I feel like I ought to write a big blog entry about my weekend, but somehow my brain's refusing to spit anything out. I had a really good time, mostly spent talking a lot or watching films.

We got through Amelie (brilliant, funny, touching), Equilibrium (weak central premise but quite good character development and some nifty fights), Revolutions (review to come), Princess Mononoke (gorgeous animation, lovely story, quite fantastic), Spirited Away (breathtakingly gorgeous animation, captivating story, great character development, beautiful dragons). It was sort of a filmic pig-out, and a highly enjoyable one at that. Also watched a whole bunch of trailers for films that I'd now really like to see including Comedian, Shaolin Soccer, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Hellboy. (There may have been more, but I can't remember them).

When we weren't watching films, we were talking about making films and when we weren't talking about making films, we were talking about writing them. (Although admittedly conversation did occasionally stray from films and writing to other subjects, such as how crap I am at playing computer games.)

The lemon sorbet was lovely, if possibly a little on the tangy side.

The urge to steal half of my friend's book collection was strong. (Pity I couldn't fit them all in my rucksack.)

The weekend was far, far too short.
