...wherein I attempt to watch new movies this year and see how far I get.

Definitely less intense than the television meme, and I've got a better structure for this one, even, because listing by the day I saw it is pointless.

For the sake of argument, TV movies count (otherwise I would be shelling out ridiculous amounts of money), miniseries do not, and I'm thinking about letting film adaptation of plays count, because they're long enough and also because of the Tennant/Tate Much Ado About Nothing. (Tennant's Hamlet was on stage but filmed as a legitimate movie so hey).

Also, it's my meme and I'm allowed to make the rules.


SO.

I'M MORE THAN OPEN TO SUGGESTIONS FOR MOVIES GUYS. Or play along with your own LJ and I'll come check it out! Movie watch-alongs are especially fun so if you feel you have the need to be the first person ever I watch a specific movie with, let me know.

I didn't make it to my ridiculous goal of 500 new episodes of television in 2011, but I darn near got close with an official count of 410. (It would probably be more like 425 due to numerous Colbert Report episodes I never counted but hey.)

This list includes: click to see my most-watched shows of 2011 + stats )

Anything else I should be doing stats for?
Total hours of television watched, I'm kinda intimidated by the idea of summing that up..

Spoilers, sweeties. You have been warned. )

Too many things to remember all at once on the first go. And I wasn't taking notes like the Doctor was.

I wrote this short futuristic sci-fi story for a paper for my American English class last November and was cleaning out my computer and found it... I thought it was pretty good, although I don't remember exactly why we had to write it, and I think I got like a B on it for kind of missing the point of the paper or something? Anyways, I wanted to share.

March 7, 4061. That’s when it all started. )

Well, how bad was it? :P
Thoughts?
shinydinosaur: (Doctor Who- 5x02)
spoilers below - my running reactions )

spoilers below - my afterthoughts and how this ties in to the rest of S5 )

So. All in all, one of my favorite episodes of New Who ever. Definitely top five overall and completely wins out as best historical episode.
