LATE NIGHT SPILL 11: lost in space and rating systems

  • I saw Gravity yesterday.
  • While watching it, I was pretty sure I forgot how to breathe once or twice. It was truly a masterpiece and I shall praise it with all the Cherry Cokes in the world in a review next week.
  • Speaking of Coke, did you guys see the rating system I finally came up with? It’s a bit rough, but I still like it heaps. What do you guys think?
  • Before Gravity, I saw Hobbit‘s trailer, and while it looks like a masterful film, I can’t remember anything but a bunch of hobbits singing in Bilbo’s hobbit hole from the first film. They really shouldn’t make nine hours of film out of a rather short novel.
  • After Gravity, I was so disoriented I missed the last bus home from Oslo, so I had to wait two hours to take the night train. On the train I watched Million Dollar Baby and it was amazing, such a great story and brilliant acting.
  • The trailer for Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning was released this week. I love both actresses and I have high hopes for this film. I think we all need a new great Disney film.
  • This week’s episode of How I Met Your Mother was beautiful, hauntingly so. I’ve watched it four or five times since Tuesday and it’s still amazing. I’m really loving this season, it’s poignant and I think the show deserves an ending like that. I also really, really like the Mother.
  • I’ve been catching up on film blogs and I’m behind on my NaNoWriMo word count with more than 5000 words. It’s 2k words less behind than I was last year, but I’m still due to hide in my room with only Word open for the rest of the month.

  1. Do you think with your rating system you could add an extra can for the highest rating? It’s hard for me to tell the difference between the (assumed) 4 cans and 3 cans rating.

  2. you know what helps with the rating “problem”.. differentiating them visually more than just with a color.. like.. add a cherry at the end of the 3 cans or something.. cause it doesn’t indeed stand out color wise that much..

  3. Thanks for the linkage Elina! Keep on doing whatever ratings system you feel best with. I don’t mind!

  4. Ohhh, I got a shout out! Thanks! ;P Loving the new rating system by the way, seems fitting some odd reason. 😉

  6. Amen on The Hobbit. And on the first film being about Dwarves singing.

  7. Hi Elina, glad you saw Gravity! It’s really breathtaking in more ways than one!
