I think that I would understand Brokeback if it were in a completely different language. I'd say as a silent film, but then you wouldn't have all the gorgeous soundtrack and aching silences and perfect sound effects. But it's a film that doesn't need a word of intelligable dialogue (and doesn't have that many.) The script is good, but it's visually and aurally perfect. Every scene is its own story and fits into the bigger story, every scene has a purpose, and the visual framing and mise-en-scene is always flawless.
Also, every single ad on TV is sexist.
I'm getting tired of the afternoon thunderstorms we get around here. Also, I was going to see Pan's Labyrinth again tonight with Mitchell but he opted out so I watched The OC instead. It all seems very anti-climactic for an end to a 4-season show. I liked it better this season without Marissa but I still felt like it was too much about the couples and not enough about the other relationships on the show. I miss the Seth/Ryan time mostly.crumpeteer examines Sam in Born Under a Bad Sign

Nominations for the important
awards of the season - The Saturn Awards
- are up. Children of Men may not have been nominated for an Oscar but if it doesn't win the Saturn there's something wrong with the world. SNAKES ON A PLANE AND SLITHER! I hope the girl from Pan's wins best young actor. Alfonso vs. Guillermo for Best Director is an interesting one. Alfonso Cuaron is my favourite director but Pan's Labyrinth was done beautifully. Heroes, Lost and Veronica Mars are all up against each other for Best Series - that's a hard one for me, and why no Supernatural?? My FAVOURITE category is Best Supporting Actor, there's only one name on that list I don't know and love (but I'm rooting for Masi.)
Also nominated was Battlestar Galactica, and I have a link to pictures from that signing event I told all you Californians to go to but I guess you didn't hear me or something.
I want Tahmoh Penikett so badly, holy crap. He's just. I can't even. And I don't LIKE V-neck tops on men.ack_attack
