    Hi Heather, thanks for doing this!

    Ok, if you’re a Bowie fan, did you know he recorded a song in both English and Indonesian because he’s buddies with one of Indo’s record producer: It’s cool to hear such a famous rock star sing in my native language! ‘Jangan Susahkan Hatiku’ means ‘Don’t Break My Heart.’

    YES We love the Aussies don’t we, but I also love the Brits equally. How could you hate Viggo?? But I had a similar thing with Matt Damon, until I saw Bourne Identity. He’s not my ultimate fave but I don’t mind seeing his movies now.

    Oh and your kids are adorable!!

    Great job, Heather! See…lots of cool stuff here! Viggo is awesome. My favorite performance is in Sean Penn’s “The Indian Runner” thought you bring up “Eastern Prmises” and he rocks there too. #3 is an excellent point, in taking your movie knowledge and not letting it jade you or make you more cynical. Perhaps that is why I enjoy reading you. I need to take a chapter out of that lesson and not be such a prick at times. Good post, you versatile blogger, you!!!

      Thank you thank you thank you.

    Thought I’d go my whole life without getting tagged for this damned thing.

    I’m a sucked for a good romcom so long as I like the chica, but SY hates them (she prefers roms and coms but never the twain shall meet).

    I’ve come to realize that most of us weird bloggers are not harsh revierwers. Methinks there are too many English and Film majors and not enough Cinema Studies majors.

      How could I NOT include you Ruben!

  4. Kaiderman says:

    I am the same way with movie reviews which is why I don’t do them. I just love films (that would be a good name for a… nevermind).
    I too am going for the Star Wars tat eventually. Working on the Avengers at present!

    I don’t think of myself as a harsh reviewer myself. I mean the A’s and B’s vastly outnumbers the C’s and D’s but every now and then, I try to be harsher if that makes sense (really just picking a few terrible movies), just because you sort of lose credibility if you like or love every single movie you review!

      Well, let’s not forget that we are the choosers and we definitely don’t want to choose what we won’t like.

      But, I always live by the credo that unless you turn off a movie early, every movie has something to offer and some place in society. It’s just a matter of finding that place.

        I am glad we (Heather) were nominated for a versatile blogger award. I am honored to be a writer/contributor dorr this site.

    • Red says:

      Yeah, for the most part it’s about buckling down and watching a few movies that you know that are gonna stink, but feel you need to have a couple of those in your repertoire.

        Best thing is when sometimes, not always, but sometimes, a movie takes you by surprise. (Be Kind Rewind)

        • Heather says:

          It is kinda cool when that happens. More often than not, the movie stinks though.

          I devote myself to chick flick-athons every now again, just to try and be diverse in my movie repertoire, and what usually happens is most of them are so bad that the mediocre ones seem far better than they actually are. My bad on “The Ugly Truth”, though I still think that Jennifer Garner one with Mark Ruffulo was cute, though the name escapes me.

            THANK You. It was making me crazy, and guess who was too unwitting to just look it up?

          • 13 Going on 30 is cute…with that and Alias I forgive Garner for being linked with Ben Affleck and inflicting Daredevil/Elektra from us.

    A Star Wars tattoo would be amazing!

    I often think I have a grasp of commas, until the suddenly creep up and turn on me again! I’m never sure if I have too many, or not enough. For an example, see current comment ;D

  7. Hmmm, I’m running out of random facts about myself! HAHA! Awesome that you tagged me here and I’ll have to get on top of doing this post.

  8. Great facts here Heather, I need to get to work on this as soon as exams are done. I am SO with you on #2 I have about twelve tabs open at the moment, and that’s a small amount for me.

    A Star Wars tatoo would be amazing. I have been watning to get a tatoo for quite some time, but have noever found the time (or money) to do what I have planned. In place of Star Wars, i’m going with LoTR. I wanna get a memorial for a couple people, and instead of a cross, I wanna get Andúril tattoo’d on my back, with several things added to it. Maybe I’ll do it when i get back from deployment. Should have a good chunk of change saved up.

      The big phallic sword on your back? That is the best way to pay your love to Aragorn in crew I can think of.

      And if not for the issue of money, I’d be covered in body art.

        Well, i can’t get carried away quite yet. The Army still owns me, so I’m kinda limited on what I can do.

        That, and I’m a big wimp who has extremely fair skin. :)

          Ha! I’m Irish and English. I’m about as fair skinned as they come. ;)

  10. Fitz says:

    I felt the same way about Jude Law as you did for Mortensen (but that was because he killed Tom Hanks in Road to Perdition).

    Thanks for the tag, Heather.

    Chuffed to read that you don’t watch re-runs of “Cheaper by the Dozen” or “Beethoven” just because you’re a Mom. Good on ya!
