mellicious: pink manicure (Xmas Rudolph)

I am, once again, not getting any studying done and I am gonna have to attempt to go to sleep fairly soon since we are going to see That Movie (i.e., Avatar) fairly early. I'm watching - or mostly listening to - the commentary to Garden State, which I had never seen before tonight. (Actually I'm watching the commentary more than I might for some movies because there's some stuff I missed the first time through - my attention wandered and I didn't figure out the whole subplot about Peter Skaarsgard's character robbing graves until way at the end.) Five years in, Garden State is a parade of familiar faces - as a matter of fact, I'm going to have to make sure and show Rob the scene with Jim Parsons even if he doesn't watch the rest of the movie, because he loves Jim Parsons. I pretty much watched the whole movie with IMDb on the screen of the computer because I kept checking to see who the heck all these people were and why they looked so familiar. (This may be why I missed the grave-robbing business, actually.) I kind of love this movie - I think I identify with the fact that it's about recovering from depression, maybe. I don't know why I didn't see this before - I had heard from a lot of people that it was good. It's just one of those movies I never got around to seeing before. -- Oh, and if you're from Houston and you've had this movie in your Netflix queue and it said Long Wait, it may be because I've had it sitting here for about two months. Sorry about that. I'll send it back on Monday, really I will.

I put Garden State on in the first place because the Dr. Who thing - "The Waters of Mars" that is - was coming on again (if you watch BBC America on Saturday nights, you probably know the drill as well as I do - old Dr Who/new Dr Who/Graham Norton and repeat) and I found it so depressing I didn't want to watch it again. I'm not sure if this had to do with the ending or with the Martian zombies, because I totally rolled my eyes when the guy turned into a zombie-Martian at the beginning. I know it's not actually supposed to be a zombie but it sure seemed like one. I'm so over zombies.
