When the going gets tough, the tough... start watching Orlando Bloom videos. 
15th-Aug-2007 07:58 pm
Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
Orlando Bloom plays a barrister on Extras. I loved this short so darn much when I first saw it, because Orlando Bloom! as a lawyer! This is probably a perfect video on how not to do cross-examination: the prosecution (Orlando) and the defense counsel (his wife) end up making the fight personal (they're married), and the judge has quite enough and says, "I ORDER YOU BOTH TO KISS AND MAKE UP!"

Also, Orlando Bloom begins his cross-examination with, "Maybe I'm stupid. Maybe the jury's stupid." ♥!

So just remember, when things get tough! If Orlando Bloom can do it, YOU CAN DO IT TOO!

Movie Trailer love! Check out D-War - a Korean movie on dragons coming up soon that the sibling and I are definitely gonna catch. Official website here - the FX are genuinely A-grade. I do think it will be one of those movies in which I do not care about the plot, as long as it shows me a good time.

Neil Gaiman's Beowulf. I really would have preferred it as live-action, but one takes what one gets. Also, for no reason I can fathom, not just ONE, but BOTH, my siblings, want to watch Poltergay. *buries head in hands* Then I saw them looking at the I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry poster.

Paris in Jail - Parody Music Video (original: Stars Are Blind). I know I'm pretty darn late to happen on this one, but it was great.

lyrics here:

I don't mind being confined
To LA State Prison
'Cause I would drive with DUI's
I caused some collisions

They tell me now that my appeal has been denied (for some reason I find this the second funniest line)
and that this sentence is now bona-fide
How bout a jail that won't insult my civic pride
Like somewhere on the Upper West Side
with a water slide......ohhh noooo

Even though they say I'm shady
I'm really so refined
I need a cleaning lady
I can't do time.

Robert Blake and OJ SIMPSON
They both get off scot-free
I drive without a license
They throw the book right at me
It sucks to the highest degree

I went ape, on a sex tape
The guys all went ga-ga
Now I, must make, my jail escape
I miss my Chihuahua

My friend Nicole drove down that freeway the wrong way
She'll probably get parole and float away
Because she weighs, Zeroooooo

Even though I got the glamour
Even though my clothes are fab
They throw me in the slammer
Britney gets re-hab.

They put me in the big house
Sounds like a movie pitch
Heiress goes up the river
Ends up as somebody's bitch
They can't do this to me, I'm rich (I find this the funniest line)
And now I am digging a ditch
My roomate's a woman named Mitch!

Daniel Radcliffe on Extras. In which he as an actor desperately to impress the same lady Orlando Bloom attempted to impress in his Extras appearance. Daniel's role here is to try so hard to be hardcore and adult: by smoking, professing a certain type of experience, and so on. ;) Just as Orlando wouldn't stop going on about how he was completely hotter than Johnny Depp. Sorry, though while I know I'm supposed to think Johnny Depp is hotter than Orlando, I disagree completely, and for me, Orlando will always win hands down. Sure, Johnny's the better actor, but he just doesn't appeal to me the way Orlando does.

Harry Potter in the Hood: R&B Potter parody.

Spoilers for Order of the Phoenix

If you get the chance to see the bad-subs version of Order of the Phoenix: it is so cracked up. When the Dementors attack Harry in the first part of the movie, the subtitles go, "I've finally found you!" [Note the Dementors say nothing] Then when Harry's Howler comes to tell him he is expelled from Hogwarts, the subtitles say, "Come back to school immediately! I do not know what happened on the 23rd!" It's like the subtitlers didn't happen to have the audio track for the movie, and subbed the movie based on whatever they thought the characters might be saying.

15th-Aug-2007 12:53 pm (UTC) - O_O
Er....wow O_O I can't believe there's now a modern version of Beowulf. Having studied it just last year at school, I'm actually quite curious to see it XD (Funny how literature can change your point of view in a variety of ways.)

Lol, "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry," eh. I like how Taiwanese theaters translate the title literally as, "When we GAY together." XDDDD I was pretty amused by that. :3
15th-Aug-2007 01:09 pm (UTC) - Re: O_O
! You sure did a whole bunch of pretty good books in your studies! *beams*

I actually wanted to see it more before I saw the trailer. :( I thought it'd be live-action, and having it animated just... kinda takes away a lot of the OOMPH.

XD! Don't you just love Chinese translations? XDDD There is this "sex comedy" (self-described) that came out here recently, and its English title is "Who Slept With Her?" but in Chinese, its title is, "My Sex Teacher".

15th-Aug-2007 12:59 pm (UTC)
This LJ post is made of win! xD

I'd seen a lot of the linkes already, but the Daniel Radcliffe one is new to me! *dies laughing!* By the way, have you read this post-DH fic yet? sodiumion linked me to it last night and it's amazing! I loved it so much! :)
15th-Aug-2007 01:11 pm (UTC)
Oh oh oh! The art links are all broken when I'm looking at it, but I think I saw one of her stories before and loved the art. Not as into Lupin Jr. as you, so I don't think I have quite the LOVE for it: I think the fic works best if you love the characters, because the language doesn't quite give me the EXTRA LOVE I'd have needed to read a fic about characters I am so-so about. I AM WITH ALBUS SEVERUS LIKE YOU ARE WITH LUPIN, THOUGH!

WAS NOT THAT DANIEL POST A LOAD OF CRACK OR WHAT? Oversexed Harry Potter, indeed! Dan does have a very lovely voice in his PROPER scenes, though. ;)
15th-Aug-2007 01:29 pm (UTC)
AWWW! Damn, they were back up last night when I was reading it! ^^; sarahcoldheart told me they'd been down before that, though. To be honest, I didn't think the art was that good but it definitely added to the story. :)

Oooh! Good point! ^^;; I think the idea of anyone not loving Teddy just hadn't occured to me until now. *headdesk* I liked it because it was more realistic (HA! HARRY POTTER = REALISTIC?!) than most fics that just go "OMG JAMES POTTER I LOVE YOU. LETS HAVE SEX NOW." xDDD

It makes me happy to hear you love Albus, though! xD I'm not sure why, but he's rarely mentioned in that fic at all. O.o (... is there Scorpius/Albus yet? *g*)
15th-Aug-2007 04:31 pm (UTC)
XD I really don't think the story's that good (quite objectively) but I thought the art was charming. REVERSE DESU. ;)

DON'T LOVE TEDDY. But didn't like Lupin. Only liked movie!Lupin. Thought Lupin was cool only in third book, and his KICKASS I WANT TO FIGHT FOR YOU moments in the last book. OTHER THAN THAT DON'T LIKE HIM. NOT SEME ENOUGH.

HAHAHAHA YEAH. Weeeeeellll I've seen fic that skip the DECLARATION OF INTENTION and go straight into ACT.

Of course Albus isn't mentioned much, Albus isn't that writer's pet the way he is mine. ♥ Lupin is her pet, which is why you like her fic.
15th-Aug-2007 01:22 pm (UTC)
Blades of Glory is finally in my country~ :D

And that Paris video is hilarious! I mean, I have nothing against Paris or whatever (except that her sister Nicky is UGLY haha!) but its fun to see parodies of her.

Oh btw, have you seen this already? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJglJoTZsMA

15th-Aug-2007 01:43 pm (UTC)
XDDD!!! I am so glad that Blades is in your country! If you do decide to watch it, I hope you like it! *beams* ♥

XDDDDD Oh, man, I loved the video because the parody was so well scripted! And there was clearly some effort put into making the video, too, so it all added up to ENTERTAINMENT! ;)

OH MY HEAVENS I really wanted to see that video! But stopped because the sibling was in the same room as me! I will try it when he is NOT PRESENT! ;)
15th-Aug-2007 02:55 pm (UTC)
Oh, I really like the Beowulf concept! First time I've seen the characters in an animated movie adopting the likenesses of their voice actors :D And, damn, but it took more than just one or two looks for me to believe that it was an animated movie xD;;

Will you have any free afternoons early next week, maybe to meet up for coffee and crack? :) *DOESN'T WANT TO LEAVE, damnit*
15th-Aug-2007 03:19 pm (UTC)
o.m.g your icon is so cute, I want to eat the bunny. EAT, I TELL YOU.

I DON'T WANT YOU TO GO, TOO! *CRIES AND KICKS LIKE A SPOILT CHIBI KADAJ* *has to be dragged away from the airport, screaming KAASAN!!! KAAASAAAAAAN!!, leaving deep gouges on the floor and a trail of grievous bodily harm*

omg! the huge cardboard standups are so great, because they look REAL there, due to the ARTISTIC LIGHTING. But but it only SEEMS real when they artistically light it and cast shadow appropriately, so that to me it's not so much that it looks real, it's just that we fail to realise that it looks fake. T_T Still kinda want to see the movie too. ;)

It's the first time for me seeing characters adopting likenesses to such a striking degree. If you've watched Shark Tale, the animated aquatic creatures sort-of take certain features from their voice actors, but I agree, nothin' like Beowulf. ;)

YES! CERTAINLY! Monday class is regretabbly from 2 to 7-ish, but I'm free on Tuesday until my tutorial at 6pm. Wednesday I'm free all day! Thursday I have a tutorial at 6pm, but free all before that! ;) Let me know what other days are good for you and I'll let you know what school's like then?
15th-Aug-2007 03:53 pm (UTC)
*makes you bunny-shaped cookies so you can do just that xDDD* I'm embarking on a quest to reduce the percentage of JE icons in my icon pool xDD It's not working, though.. :/

pre-summer's-end emo, DIE!!!

Beowulf's going to be another one of my must-watch movies this fall! Along with Stardust :) And hopefully the Bourne movie and Brave Story. Gah! Not enough time! D<

Tuesday sounds good! :) I know nii-san's coming back on Thursday but I'd like to catch you around a bit more before I leave lah xDD
15th-Aug-2007 04:07 pm (UTC)
ohgods you know KKnM has THIS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING HANI BUNNY TOY that is SO CUTE AND SO VERY GOOD AND SO CUDDLY and ALL OF $59. I really wanted to get it FOR NIISAN'S BIRTHDAY but she said NO PINK. CHIBI KADAJ WAS HEARTBROKEN. He wanted to fill Niisan's life with PINK.

XD Why would you want to reduce the JE percentage! It's great! So much SPARKLY AND RAINBOW Arashi icons! ;)



16th-Aug-2007 07:51 am (UTC)
OMG I SAW IT! I SAW IT! ♥! ♥! ♥! Isn't it the perfect size to cuddle? xDD

When I leave comments on non-JEfied friend's pages, I always feel a bit embarrassed because the most apt icons for my reply always seem to come with Sho on them xDDD KEKEKEKE

Stardust opens in October in Singapore. Disn't</i> the US has to wait another Two months for it D:

Yaaaaay! ♥ xD Tuesday it is, then? I'll be done with class about 240. Shall we meet up in Orchard at 245 or around where your class is (around Clarke Quay?) slightly later?
16th-Aug-2007 07:54 am (UTC)
..forgot the lack of support lj coding has for the "more than" sign. D:

The third paragraph was supposed to say that I thought it was really unfair how the trailer says 16 AUGUST! and the rest of the world that isn't the US has to wait two months more to watch the movie.
18th-Aug-2007 03:48 pm (UTC) - TUESDAY IS TOTALLY ON :D
XD! my class will be around Chinatown, so: would it be okay if we were to meet at Clarke Quay later? ;) I do want to go in to Kino, and maybe we can try out that cute dessert place around Clarke Quay that we didn't try out the last time? ♥ Let me know what's good for you! ;)

XDD AND OH OH OH yes the Ouran bunny is the PERFECT size to cuddle, to bed, at the computer, ANYWHERE. ♥

I like this icon of yours, it's so SPARKLY. ;) It's totally okay TO JE-up my LJ, anytime! ;)

OCTOBER D8 D8 D8. But maybe you being in London: you'll get A SPECIAL SCREENING with Neil Gaiman flying in to promote it maybe? ;)
18th-Aug-2007 04:14 pm (UTC) - I VOTE DESSERT PLACE!
Everything! Kino then dessert? They're all equidistant so any way is good! I'll be able to get there by 250! :)

It's from the Yamada Tarou drama OP sequence, which has SPARKLES, and RAINBOWS, and AIR GUITARS and the most fantastically catchy tune ever! :D

But I'm bad at waiting!!! xDDDD
20th-Aug-2007 03:44 pm (UTC) - DESSERT PLACE IT WILL BE! Shall I see you at 3pm tomorrow? :D
See you at 3pm tomorrow at/around Clarke Quay? Don't rush, take your time? ♥ Is it more convenient for me to meet you directly at LC, rather than at the MRT station? ♥ KINO AND DESSERT IS GREAT AND WONDERFUL AND GOOOD!! ♥


20th-Aug-2007 04:08 pm (UTC) - sounds like a plan! :D
I'll be going down by mrt so I can either is great! ^^ 3 at the mrt or quarter past at liang court? Which'd you prefer? :)

I asked my sensei to translate something today and it turned out to be naughty xDDD "EHHH, WHERE'D YOU HEAR THAT?"
15th-Aug-2007 03:03 pm (UTC)
Ohh, smilbe told me about Beowulf sometime ago too, perhaps i'll go watch that movie when it's released here. I hope people take screenshots of those bad dubs XD Personally I still loved the dubs found in Star Wars III: Backstroke of the West.
15th-Aug-2007 03:29 pm (UTC)
I'm kind of ambivalent about it since discovering it's animated. Doubtless I shall go to watch it, but if there are other really good movies out at the same time, I'll pass on Beowulf. Though I think it will look its best in cinemas: for best effects! ;)

XDDDDDD OH MAN, I HOPE SO TOO! I think we all know the LOTR Engrish Subtitles, which were great - and oh, I loved the Backstroke ones, I remember laughing so hard when I first found 'em! Thanks for the relink! ♥
15th-Aug-2007 04:58 pm (UTC)
A friend explained the summary of Beowulf to me, it doesn't sound that bad but I might skip it for Golden Compass and Stardust.

Ohhh i've heard of the LOTR one but I never actually seen it, i'll probably google it later for fun XD
15th-Aug-2007 03:14 pm (UTC)
If you liked the Extras stuff, you MUST see the featurettes with it. [The Asian edition is about 10 bucks cheaper than the import.] It's SO WORTH IT. Daniel Radcliffe is just the most adorable thing ever, he's all stuttery talking about acting naughty on the show. XD

And also, Ian McKellen WINS on Extras. All of them are on season 2.
15th-Aug-2007 03:45 pm (UTC)
I didn't even know Extras came on a DVD! ;) Man, thanks for letting me know! *grin* (I presume this means it's on a DVD?)

I find it so funny because he's trying so hard to BE A HARD MAN, and not like that! ;) When in his filmed sequences in Extras he's such a sweet kid. ;)

15th-Aug-2007 04:22 pm (UTC)
Also, for no reason I can fathom, not just ONE, but BOTH, my siblings, want to watch Poltergay.
Heh. I think it's because it was in Life! today. XD
15th-Aug-2007 04:27 pm (UTC)
Oh, no! They made their decision well before today's Life came into existence! They decided that they HAD to see the movie this Sunday past. One of the siblings actually made his decision on JUST the POSTER hanging from the fourth storey in Lido. The other read one of those brief "What's Coming Up Next" pamphlets lying around for free in Lido and CAME TO THE SAME CONCLUSION.

I wonder if there will be a Poltergay fandom. ;) Thing is, the movie's like Blades - gay enough, but straight enough? My brother was, "It's about four gay ghosts helping this guy win back his girlfriend!"
15th-Aug-2007 04:37 pm (UTC)
*snerk* Maybe we should have brought your brothers along to watch Blades as well XDDD

I heard the movie's in French though (haven't had the chance to actually read Life! yet - just scanned the front page this morning and went off to school)

Sounds interesting!
15th-Aug-2007 05:02 pm (UTC)
I think my brothers would not have appreciated Jimmy. One of them saw Jimmy's peacock routine and declared, "GAY" after less than a minute. BUT MAYBE THEY MIGHT HAVE FOUND IT FUNNY. I shall experiment on them with the DVD. ;)

;) Subtitles! ;) The trailers up in Lido are subtitled. Sample scene:

Guy 1: I'm active.
Guy 2: *clearly clueless* In what? (Meaning what field)
Guy 1: *knowing look* In almost everybody.

Oh heavens, I didn't read the papers today either!
16th-Aug-2007 02:23 am (UTC)
Experiment away, midear! Hopefully we shall soon have more converts to the BoG fandom! XDDD I shall try to experiment on my people with the DVD as well - I am *something* in anticipation with the release next 2 weeks.

Want to go watch Poltergay?
15th-Aug-2007 04:44 pm (UTC)
*dies* Those vids are the perfect things to de-stress to after spending an inordinate amount of time going over procedure with a fine toothed comb.
15th-Aug-2007 04:59 pm (UTC)
Precisely why I turned to them! *grin!*

KILLS PROCEDURE WTF. Have you seen our Commercial Practice tutorial? I am screaming BLOODY MURDER ABOUT "How DARE you ask us questions on LOANS, IDIOTS, WE HAVEN'T EVEN HAD LECTURES ON THEM YET!"
15th-Aug-2007 05:03 pm (UTC)
x_X Why are you looking at commercial practice? It's civ pro tomorrowoworow.
15th-Aug-2007 05:13 pm (UTC)
Because I wanted to test out my New Takeover Knowledge! ;) *sparkles*

Nah, it's because I was exhausted and somehow read Commercial Practice into Civil Procedure. I hate the Civil Procedure tutorial and I foresee we will be there til 8pm. :D
15th-Aug-2007 05:17 pm (UTC)
*pats you* *gingerly*

Waaaaaaaaaaah. No wai. I have dinner at 8. And I hate civ pro and how useless our manual is and HOW LONG THE TUTORIAL IS WTF.

15th-Aug-2007 05:03 pm (UTC)
...I meant, today. Yay late nights.
15th-Aug-2007 05:14 pm (UTC)
It's okay! ;) Thanks for the heads-up on which tutorial it was. ;) Sign that I am really too tired, and must rest.
15th-Aug-2007 05:06 pm (UTC)
*DIES LAUGHING AT THE PARIS IN JAIL VIDEO* perfect humour fodder to pass the mid-week mark. ^__________^

15th-Aug-2007 05:15 pm (UTC)
*LOVES YOU RIGHT BACK!* ♥ Glad you liked, and that the video had the same effect on you as it had on me! XDDDD *SNUUUG*
16th-Aug-2007 01:59 am (UTC)
Oh, thank you for the Orlando link! I had made a note to self to look for the episode via torrent, but by the time the episode came out, the note apparently was lost in all my mental clutter. *wry grin*
16th-Aug-2007 02:00 am (UTC)
Ahaha! Ooh, I'm adding D-wars and Beowulf to the to-watch movie list!

Gosh I'm even more behind than you then, I haven't even thought there wouold be parodies about Paris in jail. XD
16th-Aug-2007 07:29 am (UTC)
Thanks for the heads up on D-War! I love things with dragons in them (well...most!), but this looks quite intriguing. I'll have to look into it more, I'd like to see it. :D

And I finally saw Die Hard 4 today!!! See, I'm late as always! XD
16th-Aug-2007 09:10 am (UTC) - of lovely things and big shiny rings
HEY there *BIG HUGS* Beowulf is a must see, the line up looks really promising and anything with a dragon gets a big tick.*smiles*

but coming to HP in da hood... omg that's really wrong.. though it does seem to have some Eminem flavor to it.. *ROFL
