Saw this on 9Gag and it amused me greatly. So how many movie characters can you name? There’s supposed to be 100 in this clip. Fun!

Carrie Fisher — Princess Leia Organa to fans — has died today. May the Force be with her.
So this is weird. This trailer for Wonder Woman, which premiered at the recent San Diego Comic Con, made me teary-eyed. It surprised me, my reaction. Imagine, a grownup getting emotional about a female superhero! And she wasn’t even my favorite superhero back then.
… you update your blog by posting an amusing picture of Disney princesses in their dressing room… And what is Belle reading? *gasp*

It seems that this is my weekend for fraught family dramas. I watched Ilo Ilo today, the debut feature-length film by Singaporean director Anthony Chen, which chronicles the relationship of the Lim family and their new maid, Terry.
Because it recently won the Camera d’Or at Cannes and got positive press, I was very curious to see it, and judge if it lived up to the hype. Let me just say it: If you haven’t seen it, you should make it a point to go watch the movie.

Saw this while I was surfing the internets yesterday and it’s geeky and strange enough to capture my interest, which is why I’m linking it here. Basically, if you click on the link above, Jon Negroni’s theory posits that all Pixar movies are interconnected in terms of timelines, storylines, motivations, etc… It’s actually pretty compelling. Now I want to watch all the Pixar movies in order of the theory, haha!
For a capsule version of the theory, here’s the timeline: The Pixar Theory timeline. But do read the whole theory. It’s interesting, promise!

Just watched Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. I remember being bowled over by these movies before, not least because all they really did in both movies was talk. I mean, how did these movies ever get made? But they did, and one of the most magical and romantic cinematic pairings was immortalized onscreen.
This was the last scene of the second movie. Celine (Julie Delpy — who knew she could sing?? I didn’t when I first saw this movie!) sings Jessie (Ethan Hawke) a song about the night they spent together nine years ago. Hooray for second chances and do-overs, huh?
Can’t wait for the third movie.
