I've started in on the Christmas music . . . how about you? And I think I am going to have to go see the new Muppet movie in the theater.
I will be going to see Sherlock Holmes 2 in theaters with my best friend and brother - not the hugest fan of the first movie (I'm a Sherlockian purist nut), but it was fun, the special effects were cool, the soundtrack rocked, and I liked the scenery. The big reason why I am going, though, is for something that comes before the movie: a Dark Knight Rises trailer. *squeals*
As for music, I am jamming to my usual variety of symphonic metal, Gothic rock, soundtrack, country, and Disney songs, with my latest song obsessions being "A Dangerous Mind" and "The Swan Song" both by Within Temptation and "I'm So Sick" by Flyleaf.
There's a good deal of music from work stuck in my head. All Christmas music, of course, including one about the Grinch.
I'm really looking forward to watching the new Sherlock Holmes movie! In the meantime, I'm still watching the same shows I usually do, with the addition of Grey's Anatomy now that I'm up to date on seasons.
Oh! Oh! Oh! And there might be a teaser trailer for The Hobbit before Sherlock Holmes 2 starts!!!!!!!!!!! Just another reason to go see it... I hope the teaser will be there!!!!!!!! *dissolves into more fangirl squealing*
Last night I started watching "Love Actually", one of my favorite Christmas movies. I fell asleep before finishing it, and probably won't get to finish it until Sunday.
#5 - That's one of my favorites, too! We'll probably watch it sometime in the next week or two.
Last night we watched "Desk Set" and tonight we watched "The Muppet Christmas Carol." We still have "Love Actually," "Elf," "A Charlie Brown Christmas," "Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas," and "White Christmas" left to watch.
As for listening, I've been cycling through some of my favorite Christmas albums, including both by Amy Grant, the Moravian Lower Brass Band album, the Time-Life "Treasury of Christmas: Holiday Memories," and two instrumental albums.
I watched The Santa Clause for the chaotic group movie watch tonight. I still plan to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Love Actually, Elf, and maybe Home Alone, A Christmas Carol, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. (Not all tonight, of course!)
Tonight my brother and I watched The King's Speech and Captain America. LOVED The King's Speech, especially the friendship between the King and Lionel. There are so few good friendship movies out there, but this movie was one. Captain America was also fun (main chick kind of forgettable, but I liked the superhero, Steve, aka, Captain America), so I've had a good night thus far.
Now I must think about homework. *bangs head on keyboard*
all of the classic Christmas movies of course and listening to christmas music including A Very She & Him Christmas. Love Zooey's voice!
My husband and I are actually watching My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. ^_^
I recently watched the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I'm glad now that I waited for it to be available on RedBox, although do have to say it was better than I originally gave it credit for.
Hello! I just read that Sherlock's second season has a premiere date (at least in the UK) and it's January 1st! I can't wait to watch it!
Right now I'm watching the annimated How the Grinch Stole Christmas to make sure it works on my SMARTboard. I made a frame for the board, and it's super cute, but i mismeasured a bit.
I watched Whip It (Ellen Page, Juliette Lewis, Drew Barrymore) last night. I liked it. Started the anime Darker than Black and am really digging it.
Listening-wise, the Delphic remix of Everything Everything's My Keys Your Boyfriend. . . best homework song ever. It's racked up 148 plays since I got the new comp in Sept. When I'm not paying attention, it just sounds like one really long song.
I watched Fright Night last night. Looooooved David Tennant in it!! Its like The Doctor, gone all... wrong and scratchy and potty mouthed. All that, while wearing leather 8^D YESSSSSSSSSSS
Loooorve Love Actually I watch that every Christmas, that and Bridget Jones' Diary
#8--> The King's Speech is superb!
#12--> NO WAY!! That is EXCELLENT news!! I really enjoyed season 1 of Sherlock!!
12: I've been waiting forever for the second season! What's taken so long??
Sherlock trailer. Though, of course, we're not getting it in the US for a couple more months.
#16: I watched Fright Night last month and loved it. DT was perfect in it :D
Just went to see the new Muppet movie. It was good but not great -- while I love the idea of a Muppet reunion, I wasn't all that impressed with the human characters. Props to Camilla and the Chickens for the funniest performance ever of "Forget You," though!
Just watched Toy Story. We hadn't seen it in years! Catbastet understood it on a whole new level!
I just watched the Glee Christmas episode . . . disjointed, awkward, and flat. I mean, did I miss something there? Last year's was pretty decent, but this one was weird and plotless. Come to think of it, I haven't really been impressed with this entire season of Glee -- I wonder if the writing team changed?
I am watching the new trailer for The Hobbit over and over again. I am such a nerd.
#20: That's funny, Mandy and I LOVED it! It felt like a return to the days of old. And the rap, Oh the rap!
#21: I agree about the Christmas episode, it was truly awful. And how messed up is singing "Do They Know It's Christmas?" in front of homeless people at a soup kitchen?! That's a horrible song anyway and they made it so inappropriate! Though I was surprised and impressed that they read Luke.
I thought the first four episodes of the season were pretty bad too, but I liked the attention to Santana's story line recently. Of course, if you read television critics, apparently last year was awful and this year is back to being good. I loved last year. Perhaps I just don't know anything.
#24 -- The nostalgia factor of the Muppet movie was great, but I didn't feel like it was fresh or innovative, the way Muppets should be. I miss Jim Henson. Also, I really disliked Amy Adams' character -- all she did was whine and pout.
As for Glee, I agree that the focus on Santana's storyline has been good, but the thing with Puck and Quinn and the baby has been weird and squicky from so many angles that it makes my skin crawl just thinking about it. I was impressed that they read from Luke for the Christmas episode. I think they were trying to reference the Charlie Brown Christmas special with this episode, the way they referenced The Grinch last year, but it just didn't work so well.
#20, 24 & 25 - We saw the Muppet movie over Thanksgiving weekend, and loved it too. Interestingly, one aspect I really enjoyed was that it *wasn't* an innovative departure from the Muppet days of old! And the chickens' cover of "Forget You" caused me to laugh so hard I cried, which frustrated my 5 year old niece to no end, as she didn't get the humor and told me to stop laughing because it wasn't funny. :)
#21 & 25 - I stopped watching Glee last season, as I felt it lost it's charm of the first season and failed to grow. Sounds like I haven't missed much.
We watched Elf last weekend while I wrapped gifts. Tomorrow night we're going to watch White Christmas, my favorite!
Yesterday I showed last year's Doctor Who Christmas special to my class. They loved it!
Wow, Compski!! How fun!! I wish I had a teacher like you when I was a kid!
Tonight, to ring out 2011, we are finishing our annual LOTR watching. We watch the trilogy each year starting sometime the week after Christmas, often carrying into January. But this year, because my husband has been on call, we have been home, and started it earlier. I'm glad we are ending it on New Year's Eve - very fitting!
