I saw Star Wars I in 3D. I don't know if it's because I've seen it before several times and know when to ignore Jar Jar, but the 3D made it a lot more exciting.
Basically every criticism of the prequels is the exact criticism I have of anime: bad characterization, muddled plots, lots of eye candy to marvel at.

Rewatching this crudely animated 80's high school baseball anime called Touch. The characters feel like real people, the story progresses over their entire high school career, there are no freak out double takes, no tentacles or weird pervy stuff, no forced situational/misunderstanding based comedy. Take that, anime haters!▵

Marilyn Munroe and Human Sacrifice
I saw, "My Week with Marilyn", the other day, and I realised I was watching a human sacifice.
We all partook of Marilyn, we consumed her, just as we consume the human sacrifice of Jesus in Communion.
Marilyn Munroe was prepared for human sacrifice from her earliest years by sexual abuse by those she trusted and those who cared for her.
On the road to her final sacrifice, Marilyn was sacrificed to our most famous baseball player and our most famous playwright.
And as Marilyn moved towards her final sacrifice, Marilyn was sacrificed to the lusts of the Attorney General of the United States of America and his brother, the President of the United States of America.
Finally Marilyn was prepared for her final sacifice, and Marilyn didn't shirk, Marilyn took the poisoned soma and gave her all for us.
And Marilyn Munroe died with the smell of child abuse on her breath and the taste of suicide on her tongue, knowing her final sacrifice would make her immortal.

I spent quite a while writing a very long, very nice post about the BBC series Sherlock detailing why I think it's so great but apparently the forum software disagrees, hence it proverbially 'ate' my post.
So, er, watch Sherlock if you ever get the chance, and fuck you very much vBulletin.

I went to the cinema with a good friend today and watched The Dangerous Method. I found it thought provoking and it inspired me to check out Otto Gross (Is he a xNFx E4 by any chance?). Has anyone read the book and watched the film? I want to know if the film has been glamourized for the big screen and to find out it isn't a true representation would annoy me slightly. Or i could just buy the book and find out myself.“I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”

And it's not like it's because I'm a "new-gen" or whatever. My dad is a huge original Star Wars fan, so I grew up watching the originals several times before watching the prequels. When I watched the prequels, I was amazed how much more I was drawn to the character of Anakin and the whole overall feel than the character of Luke and the overall feel to the originals.
Of course, I won't be surprised that you will probably say something about me being a naive Fi-user or whatever to discredit what I have to say.MBTI: INFP
