"I talk about the gods, I am an atheist. But I am an artist too, and therefore a liar. Distrust everything I say. I am telling the truth."

Media Stuff #10

I consumed quite a few things since the last entry, because I had started to feel better. That kinda changed again, though. I had a pretty bad reaction to the new meds, bad enough that I thought I had accidently overdosed. First I got really sleepy, then I started throwing up. My favourite neighbour had to drive me to the doctor because I could barely stay awake. Turns out I'm just really very sensitive when it comes to codeine. *sigh* Anyway, here we go!


Black Swan (2010) - Mental illness, toxic environments, obsession, those aren't easy topics. Nina's perspective was very well done, especially in the dance scenes. I totally understand why Natalie Portman got that Oscar.

Silver Linings Playbook (2012) - Yeah, I guess it was all right. As I said about Black Swan, mental illness, toxic environments, obsession, those aren't easy topics. I don't quite understand why it got Jennifer Lawrence that Oscar, though. *g*

What We Do in the Shadows (2014) - *snicker* Vampire flatmates doing a reality tv report on their life in modern times. Cool idea, very funny! I loved all the nods to the typical vampire clich├ęs.

The Danish Girl (2015) - Fascinating movie with several great actors! Alicia Vikander and Eddie Redmayne were so awesome in this one.

The Martian (2015) - I thought it was clever and funny, and I liked it a lot!

Also...well. I watched the whole Voltron: Legendary Defender show. Yep, every single episode. And I loved it! I may have found a new fandom. *g* I say "may have" because I haven't actually dipped my toes into the fandom yet, apart from looking for fanart. I've heard/read so many negative things about the ship war, and I'm not sure how I will perceive it, or how I will react.
