Oh no need to apologize for late replies, I'm queen of late replies. I'll get back to that other comment in a bit. Haha.

Oh a new lay-out!? *curious*

RE Prometheus: I was pretty disappointed as well, thought it lacked depth. I guess I just expect a lot more from Ridley Scott. Gladiator's one of my favorite movies. It's really pretty and Michael Fassbender's awesome in it, but that's about it?

I love my gingers! HAHA. I think I forgot to mention Damian Lewis. Band of Brothers is all kinds of awesome. You do realize that you agreeing makes you awesome too then? :DD

Whitechapel (no spoilers): That last episode. I have no words for it. In the best way possible. The first series was also the first time I thought 'wow, this show is actually kind of creepy'. Not a lot of stuff scares me. I watched a lot of horror movies when I was little. To my parents: parenting, that's probably not how you do it, but at least I'm not easily spooked. I like it when show creators explore boundaries.

I don't watch Silk unfortunately, but I know I should. Dee's been telling me to watch it. :D

THE BABY BLUE EYES! I watched Atonement when it was released over here (in 2007 or so). I didn't really know James back then, but I remember loving how different it was from a lot of other movies.
I sort of liked Keira in Pirates, but I started appreciating her as an actress thanks to Atonement. Not that I'm a huge fan, but I'm definitely not a hater either. I'm really not a hater in general. XD Make love not war and all of that.

Haven't seen Matthew in P&P but I am very familiar with his acting.Hehe. Other than Pillars I saw him in a couple of episodes of Spooks and some movies (Enigma for example - ages ago, so unfortunately I don't remember his character).

American Psycho's just bloody hilarious as well. I once did a short tv interview for a show about movies. And, on a personal mission to promote the movie, I talked about it. They showed a clip too.

My favorite scene is the scene where he kills Paul Allen. 'Try getting a reservation at Dorsia now, you fucking stupid bastard!' And the whole Huey Lewis and the news monologue (or the Phil Collins one).
And the cranberry juice! The cranberry juice is a slice of genius.

I've never read Fight Club, is it good? I guess when it comes to fave directors I kind of like David Fincher too.

Professional points are so overrated, but we still need them for our resume. Probably one of the reasons I don't have a job yet, experience. Ugh. But you can't get experience if no one gives you a chance of course.
Maw, thank you dear, you're too kind! :) I'd love to find something similar to film production. There aren't any jobs like that available atm, but I'd love that. And writing, I do love words. Dream job would be going to the movies, writing reviews and getting money for it.

Haha, you're not the only queen of late replies here. I'm, too! :D

Oh, no, I'm really sad to hear Prometheus is disappointing. I was really looking forward to seeing it. But I trust your judgement so I won't go see it. Have you seen Avengers, btw? It seems to be insanely popular here.

You like Gingers? haha, awesome. Oh, I know Damien, haven't seen'm in anything though. But he's quite handsome. Guh, there's just something about British men, isn't it? You can't help but crush over them, they're toxic. :D

OMG! I finally saw Whitechaple's finale last night. Good god, it was amazing. The ending was heartwrenching. I feel so bad for Chandler. Poor thing, the first woman he ever feels something for dies in an instant like this. It's so sad. I really liked Morgan, she was sweet and caring, exactly what Chandler needed. Damn that bitch who killed her. I can't believe she managed to, I mean, she's old, how did she knock her down like this? It's ironic and unbelievable, Morgan managed to escape the killer's grip twice and couldn't do the same with his old mother? Weird, isn't it?
You're so right, though, this show is very spooky. This case, especially, along with the Ripper's replicas from s1 were the creepiest. I didn't like the case where the guy chops up his victims. I thought how they uncovered was rushed and unsatisfying. What did you think? What are your fave cases so far?

Haha, make love not war. That's the spirit! I like Keira, too. I think I started appreciating her in Pride & Prejudice. She was an excellent Lizzy. Have you seen her in Duchess? It's one of her underrated performances, but solid ones at that. Give it a try! Atonement was a great movie, James shined in it. Hm, I don't really remember what was the first James movie I saw. I think it was this crappy one with Angelina called Wanted. Do you know it? Nonetheless, he was HOT. Lots of shirtless scenes and all, quite satisfying! :D

Pillars of the Earth was excellent, Matthew was amazing in it! :D You should definitely see P&P it's really fun and you'll swoon over Matthew. He's so adorable and gallant. You'd wish you had someone like that in your life, haha. :D

You made an interview? Really? Where? Do you have a clip? You really are immensely fascinated with American Psycho, aren't you? :D

LOL! I love those scenes you mentioned, too. I always laugh so hard at the killing of Paul Allen, too. Especially, before he axes him and Paul says 'is that a raincoat? And then Patrick says' Yes' and then he says 'HEY PAUL! BUMP! LOL! So awesome. It's a masterpiece. I really detest the idea of remaking it. YIKES! :D

You should read Fight Club, the book explores Ed Norton's character more, so you understand it better. also, the ending is different. :D David Fincher is my fave, too. What other of his movies have you seen? :D

Exactly, they always demand years of experience and when you don't have it, they don't hire you. Stupid, isn't it?
Writing reviews for a living is a dream job, You'd be great at it, seeing as your writing skills are tremendously good. Keep up the dream, my love. You'll get there! :D

Well, Prometheus is still pretty and Michael Fassbender rocks it. But other than that... *shrugs* I did love Guy Pearce in it too, but he's barely recognizable.

I usually watch a movie where the British boy has an American accent and then I check his imdb page and end up in shock. "Another British boy, seriously?" "Ah wel, I don't miiiind." "This is perfect."

Whitechapel: my favorite eppies are the series 1 episodes and I love the last case of series 3. LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT seems so cool. <3 And Mantus was adorable in a creepy way.

I didn't like the case where the guy chops up his victims. I thought how they uncovered was rushed and unsatisfying.

I agree, but I did laugh my ass of at the 'dismemberment' ~jokes. Not that they were actual jokes, but the intonation and timing made it light and funny at one point. Or I just have a weird sense of humor.
And the Austen reference in that episode.
And Miles falling asleep standing up. Hehe.

I'll add the movies to my list. It's a long list of what I like to call 'big gaping holes in my movie culture that need to be filled'.
I know Wanted, it's actually kind of a guilty pleasure? I know a lot of people dislike it, and it's not a classic quality movie, but I do appreciate the visualizing and the fast-paced humor in it?
And James of course, I really appreciate James in it. It's also the only movie where he gets to do action stuff. Until X-Men was released of course.

I tried ripping the interview clip once, but it didn't work unfortunately. It's kind of a low quality recording and I can't get it in the right format. ugh. >_<

I loved The Game growing up. Zodiac's so pretty (for a dark movie ;)). I especially love the dark humor in it too. Then there's Se7en, a masterpiece too imho. :DD

Thanks dear! *squishes you*
