The Package

Best line of the night,

"Because you're speaking."

What was with the 10 second boob shot? What, are they making sure we didn't miss them the first time?

FINALLY, this poor man gets to see his child -- that Sun left behind.

I couldn't find a screen shot of it, but when Sayid bobs out of the water with a dreamy look on his face, those glassy eyes staring deeply into Mr. Hume's disoriented face...hilarious.

Ab Aeterno

Finally. FINALLY. My beloved Richard gets his back story.

Some screen shots are just too good.

"(gasp) Es el diablo!" - Isabella
"Un poco de privacidad por favor!"

I love this shot

I guess Jacob believes in forceful conversion, starting with baptism.

Ok, as I try to figure this all out, let's start with the facts (at least I think they're facts)

  • Jacob doesn't want to protect the island. He's protecting the rest of the world.
  • He is....good?
  • He thinks all people are naturally good, and proving that will do....what?
  • Man-in-Black wants to leave the island and...corrupt the rest of the world?
  • He has no human body, but used to? How can he be evil incarnate when he had a mother?
  • He thinks all people are bad, just like him.

Loved this analogy. It really helped me understand it a lot better.

I'm glad Richard's back on the good side now, after his ghost-kiss with lovely Isabella.

Where The Wild Things Are

I haven't done a movie review in a zillion months, so....

Where The Wild Things Are, directed by Spike Jonze, pleasantly surprised me.

If you are like me, (and when I say 'like me', I mean your mom didn't let you read the children's book) and you don't know the storyline, here's the gist...

Max is a wild boy who just needs an active, imaginative outlet. Unfortunately, he's usually left alone, causing him to create intricate worlds to escape to.

Some may think he just needs a good spankin', but really all he wants is attention. Even saying, "hold on a minute sweetie" would suffice, at least he would be acknowledged.

On an exceptionally bad day for Max, he and his mom have a fight. In a fit of rage, he bites his mother, but before he realizes what he's done, his mom throws him to the ground, yelling. He's completely terrified and upset (c'mon people, he didn't mean to) and runs out the door.

Now call it imagination or reality, Max finds a boat and sails to a distant island where he encounters a group of massive, really freaky, monsters. As they close in to eat this strange creature, Max thinks fast, and with an authoritative tone yells, "Be Still!!" After which, he convinces the group he is a king from a faraway land with many terrible powers.

That was as far as the story book went. Jonze picks it up by adding character development.

These monsters are unhappy, and have been for awhile. That was why a king sounded like a good idea, someone to make them happy again.

The monsters themselves are amazing. If you compare these to the those in the actual book, the resemblance is ridiculously accurate!

They look super real, and seriously terrifying in some scenes.

What I liked most about the film though, was the lessons for Max.

He learned...
  • just because you don't understand someone, doesn't mean they can't be your friend
  • playing rough isn't always the safest game
  • to forgive people who hurt him
and a bunch more. He grew up so fast, observing the problems these monsters had.

How awesome is this photo below. I like Spike Jonze even more for this.

Some won't get it. My mom thought he was a bratty kid, annoying and wild. I loved it. It was every little kid's dream to run around screaming, destroying stuff, bangin' into eachother, laughing, and crashing in a pile.

One last thing. I thought it was quite funny that the dvd box for this movie appears to have met a Wild Thing in the rental process.

Look Familiar?

I'm pretty sure all us girls got pretty excited to see Sawyer
(I'm sorry I just can't call him James) with:

A: His shirt off (it's been a while!)
& B: Gotta love a man with a badge

Not Excited About : Charlotte. Sure rackin' em up huh?

So how did we get from this lovely(creepy) little connection...

To this.

Emilie is doing such a good job, this is a total turn around for her character. Same with Terry O'Quinn. Both have made such an easy, convincing transition to their "Other-selves"

"That is covered in skeet!" as said by Lyrica Tuesday night. "C'mon, you all were thinking it!"

I think Sayid is on Smoky-Weed. Either that or he thinks he's watching his daily soap and man, are their graphics low quality!

Can't wait for tonight. My favorite character's long overdue-centric episode.
Darling, beloved, beautiful, Mr. Alpert.

Dr. Linus

I love that Ben writes his name on his mug. Told you we'd be friends.

So, why did they leave the island?
Roger finally get sick of janitorial aspirations?
If their relationship is better, that means he didn't drink as much, hence no mommy issues, which means no sighting of dead mom in the forest. who knows.

I want to believe Ben, but up until this point, he's STILL trying to harness some sort of control/power. Why does Demon-Locke want Ben to stay, or is it a trick?

Totally called it.

  • Jack is sounding more and more like old-Locke everyday "destiny" and "fate"
  • did anyone else feel the R2D2 reference at the end? because I did, and I loved it.
    (in case you have no idea, it's when the sub was poking out of the sea to see the beach)

Umm, gross.

I don't know why everyone is getting so worked up. Sure, Sayid is bad now, but what did you think would happen? Everyone sitting around the fire holding hands and swaying??

I like it. :)

"Silly,....I'm a zombie remember?"

I LOVE Creepy-Sayid! Naveen Andrews is doing an excellent job.

It may be just me, but Fierce-Claire looks a lot like Creeper Face kid who told Not-Locke about "the rules"

(think I have enough nicknames?? geez)

Can't wait to see what they do next. Will Ben die?
