"I pray one prayer - I repeat it till my tongue stiffens - Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living; you said I killed you - haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers, I believe. I know that ghosts HAVE wandered on earth. Be with me always - take any form - drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul"

The Evil Dead
Evil Dead II
Army of Darkness
Drag Me To Hell
Upcoming: his next film is called Oz: The Great and Powerful and it looks really cool. It has the most awesome cast including James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Bruce Campbell. Can't wait!

This scene is from the 2002 remake of the Japanese film Ringu. I have seen both of them, and I have to say that the remake is a lot scarier. There are tons of great scenes in this film, but this is the one that I believe is the most memorable and the most chilling.
It starts out with this guy who notices his TV turn on. You know that he has watched the tape and that his seven days are up, but you don't yet know how he is going to die. He doesn't really think anything of it, so he just goes and shuts it off. Then, it suddenly turns back on, only instead of static, we get the image of the well.

I am a huge fan of werewolf movies, and The Wolf Man is one of my favorites from the classic Universal horror era. What makes Lawrence Talbot different from the other Universal monsters is that he doesn't mean to hurt anyone. Under the full moon he can't control his actions. So, he really isn't a bad guy. Since I loved the old one, I was really excited for the remake to come out. Although it isn't a perfect movie, I still really liked it. How could I not like a film that has Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt, and Hugo Weaving?

Nightmare on Elm Street
Benny and Joon
This is another Burton/ Depp film that is also one of my personal favorites. It is about B-movie director Edward D. Wood Jr. and all of the shitty movies he made. I have never seen any of Wood's movies, but if they are anything like they are portrayed in this film, then I know that they are pretty bad.
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Pirates of the Caribbean
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Alice in Wonderland
It came as no surprise to me (or to anyone else I'd imagine) when I read that Depp was cast as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. He was the obvious choice really...
He has two movies coming out within a year that I am really excited about. The first is The Rum Diary, which is another film version of a Hunter S. Thompson novel. The one that I am REALLY excited for, however, is Dark Shadows. It is directed by Tim Burton, and Depp plays a vampire! It also has greatest cast. Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, Eva Green, Jackie Earle Haley, and more! It is going to be awesome!

"I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way." With that oddly proportioned body and Kathleen Turner's husky voice, Jessica Rabbit is a cartoon character that oozes sex appeal. She makes even human men swoon, and for some reason is married to a goofy cartoon rabbit. I have loved Who Framed Roger Rabbit since I was little, and to this day it is still one of my favorite films. I just love the cartoon version of a femme fatale, who is a little Veronica Lake and a little bit Lauren Bacall. Here is my favorite Jessica Rabbit scene.

When I read books, especially ones as long as this one, I always picture them as movies in my head. So here was my cast...
Anna was, of course, played by myself. I always picture one of the characters to be myself, and since the main character was female, that is obviously going to be me. One of the reasons that I didn't really care for At the Mountains of Madness was probably because it didn't have any female characters.
Vronsky was Michael Fassbender. If I was to leave my husband for anybody it would be him. Karenin was Clive Owen. It says that he has a high squeaky voice, but I like Owen's deep voice better. Also, there is a DVD for the movie Closer sitting right by my bed. Oblonsky was Jude Law and his wife Dolly was Jennifer Connely. Levin was Ben Affleck and Emily Browning was Kitty. So that the cast of Anna Karenina in my brain. What is really funny is that I was reading about an upcoming film version of Anna Karenina yesterday, and Jude Law is actually going to be in it, except he will be playing Karenin instead of Vronsky. I was psyched when I saw that Keira Knightley was going to be Anna, but I'm less than pleased at Aaron Johnson being Vronsky. He is way too young!

Five Easy Pieces
One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
Terms of Endearment
The Witches of Eastwick
A Few Good Men
As Good As It Gets
More proof that Nicholson makes an excellent bad guy! I love the entire cast of this movie, and is one of my favorites from Scorsese. I just love the part where he says "don't laugh!!!"
