Last night I ended up watching the movie "Equilibrium" on TV by mistake. I've seen it a number of times now and I don't care what any of you say, it is definitely one of the greatest films of all time. I know it's kind of like 1984's retarded cousin, but as entertainment goes it is GREAT GREAT STUFF. And I'm not even a Christian Bale fan! Except that clearly he is a seriously seriously good actor, with a lot of soul and a very hot body. (He's not Batman to me, he's just not, and I'm not sure I can ever accept him as Batman, but every time I watch Equilibrium I feel like shagging him.)
I love that whole sequence when he has his emotional awakening and hears music for the first time (Beethoven, natch) and it makes him cry, and the fancy stuff with the guns! Totally awesome.
Also, William Fichtner is in it, and Taye Diggs (is his character dosing up or is he just a psycho? I've never been able to work it out), and Sean Bean ("But I, being poor, have only my dreams. I have spread my dreams under your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams." *weeps*), and Emily Watson, and Emily Watson makes lines like this sound really good:
John Preston: What's the point of your existence?
Mary: To feel. 'Cause you've never done it, you can never know it. But it's as vital as breath. And without it, without love, without anger, without sorrow...breath is just a clock...ticking.
It's one of those films I always forget about but then I find myself watching it and being completely riveted. *AIR PUNCH*
Jamie Theakston, one of Heart FM's breakfast DJs, is getting married tomorrow. I am not happy about this because I'm quite certain I would be more suited to him than this new bird.
Also, I caught a bit of Friends last night and it's the one where Rachel and Monica have to fight over the last condom in the bathroom. Am I crazy? Why would anyone keep condoms in the bathroom? Shouldn't they be in the bedside table? This has always bothered me about that episode, because surely, *surely* you would keep condoms *somewhere handy*. So, yknow, you don't have to leave the room in the middle of the sex! Right?
Tell me your favourite bad movie, and/or your most embarrassing celebrity crush.
