100 posts, yeah baby!

Firstly, this is my 100th post on this blog! Woo! That's quite an achievement.

Secondly, I know I mentioned some films I want to see in my last post, and I have scoured the depths of Apple trailers to find you the very best of this year's cinema offerings. Here are the best three, in my opinion:

1. Hairspray - PLEASE watch this trailer. This film looks SOOO good, it's a film adaptation of a successful Broadway show. I challenge anyone to watch this trailer without similing.

2. Across the Universe - Another musical, also set in the 60s. It's interesting to compare the trailes for this and Hairspray, they are set in similar periods but are VERY different pieces. This film looks absolutely amazing.

3. Freedom Writers - A slightly different type of film, but also looks really good. Have to wait for the DVD for this one.

If yopu have read this blog and aren't going to watch the trailers, you should be ashamed of yourself. And you're missing out.

Idina, school, OC and films!

Brand new site:! You can listen to the new remixed version of 'Defying Gravity'... I love it! I hope her old site hasn't completely disappeared though because there was some good stuff on there.

I'm so bored with school right now and we've only been back a week! I just want to go on study leave and get on with the revision myself! I know the teachers are only trying to help, but... urgh, I just want the next couple of months to be over!!!

Last Tuesday was the last ever epsiode of The OC! I've never cried so much at anything... ever! Perfect episode, though, if slightly rushed. It ended exactly as it should, with all the loose ends tied up and whatnot.

There are SO many films I want to see that are coming out this year! Last week I managed to spend several hours on Apple Trailers watching trailer after trailer... and now I have a long list of things to see... once they come out! These include:
- In The Land of Women (with Adam Brody and Kristen Stewart, who is a really good actress and I can't believe she's only a few months older than me)
- Across The Universe (a musical type-thing set in the 1960s. Watch the trailer for this, it looks INCREDIBLE.)
- No Reservations (with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Abigail Breslin from Little Miss Sunshine)
- Freedom Writers (STILL! I missed it in cinemas, have to wait for the DVD)
- Penelope (with Christina Ricci, James McAvoy and Reese Witherspoon... gotta be good)
- Stardust (big epic fantasy adventure thing)
- The Nanny Diaries (with Laura Linney and Scarlet Johannson... looks hilarious)

So I recommend you go and watch the trailers for those. Go! Now!
