Just finished watching The Wolfman. Luscious slab of retro-gothic. :D

I so loved that movie. :)
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

forgot but over the last two days during thefolding of laundry and cooking and so forth I've watched Fanny Hill, a riot of a movie about a country lass forced to become a prostitute but gains a fortune by befriending an old man, also watched Madame Bovary pt 1 and Wuthering Heights followed by Sense and Sensibility. I love Austen adaptations, hard to read but easy to watch :}

Watched Pride and Prejudice again this morning. (With Keira Knightely)

the one with Hugh Grant, Kate Winslet and Alan Rickman, the best of the men in the movie in my opinion.

"The Special Relationship", about Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. Good movie. Dennis Quaid was spot on as Clinton and Michael Sheen must be doing something right because this is his 3rd time playing Blair.
