Love this song...

When you walk into a room
Your beauty steals my breath away
When you look into my eyes
I find it hard to find the words to say

Wanna run away and hide
I just got to let you know
Feel so tangled up inside
I should have never let you go

Anyone can make mistakes
And we both have made our share
But a life without your love
Is a life too hard to bear
I don't care who's right or wrong
Only know I love you so
Why did I have to write this song
I should have never let you go

Why in all the wide, wide world
Have I run into you here
Wish I could disappear
I'll never understand
(I'll never understand)
Why I even give a damn

When you walk into a room
You know I stand on shaky ground
I've built so many walls around - me
Now the walls are tumbling down
You're the kind I can't forget
Let the tears begin to flow
I have only one regret
I should have never let you.....go
Should have never let you go

Should have never let you go...

Movie Review Madness

Okay, so Girl with a Pearl Earring was beautiful to watch and listen to. It was so atmospheric. I loved it. I have to admit, I was surprised with the amount of attention it got from the mainstream media. It was slow, and character driven. I loved how every shot was like a painting.

Van Helsing had so many elements which were right - as a movie of that nature should have I mean. A truly great cast. A re-imagining of those stories and the classic over-the-top horror movies. The campiness was fantastic. But when it was trying to be serious it failed greatly. Some of the effects were brilliant and others were not. And the ending? That was hokey with a capital H. Ack, it annoys me when they ruin a perfectly good camp action film to try an inject it with real feeling - it never works. Camp it up! Make it more ridiculous! There's no such thing as suspension of disbelief in a film like this - there's no belief at all - so go with it.

I was so proud of my lovely Ozzie actors, though. David Wenham is absolutely amazing. Everytime I see him he fills me with wonderment. And I've been watching him for that many years. It's kind of scary how he never seems to grow older. Richard Roxburgh is another one of those actors, he was fantastic as usual (plus I loved what they did with the character of Dracula - it was great). And Hugh Jackman did a pretty good job in a fairly limited role. He was good, but the scenes with Kate Beckinsale annoyed me greatly. It doesn't help that, despite loving her father's acting (and feeling sad he died so young), I'm not too fond of Kate. Plus there was Alun Armstrong and Sam West in the movie as well (though not enough)!

All in all - both were enjoyable movies. But Girl with a Pearl Earring was more of an artistic film, and worth more respect.

I just got the coolest package from a certain CoS member.

I got a note in the morning telling me to collect the package from the post office, but I hadn't ordered anything and Miri's package had come, so I was confused.

Anyway I picked it up and LOOK;

Too cool! THANKS!
