i have been sick the past few days
which means alot of lying of the couch, drinking lemonade, watching movies, and feeling guilty about missing out on school
BUT i did watch two very good movies
the first was mirrormask, which is (and i quote off of the case) the story of helena, who works for the family circus and wishes - quite ironically - that she could run away and join real life.
but such is not to be the case, as she finds herself on a strange journey in the Dark Lands, a fantastic landscape filled with giants, monkeybirds and dangerous sphinxes.
helena searches for the mirrormask, an object of enormous power that is her only hope of escaping the Dark Lands, waking the Queen of Light and returning home.
i think i liked this movie so much because of its originality. the story line really caught my attenting and the cinematography was amazing...so many good shots :)
the second film that was memorable from the past week was 'my blueberry nights'
starring jude law, natalie portman and norah jones (and not just her music, she's like the main character)
the story is about broken hearts and it follows elizabeth (aka norah jones) as she tries to heal hers
i highly recomment both movies if you havent already seen them :)
