Let me preface this by saying that I am not 100% sure on all the facts here, so bear with me, correct me where need be, all that good stuff... And, um, yeah I know that I have been whoring out the blog to YouTube lately, but JJ is actually without computer access at the moment [and yes, I start to hyperventilate every time I think about this, too] with the exception of her Blackberry. Hopefully, she'll be around tomorrow to entertain ya'll with her bad ol' self [note to JJ's boss: please don't expect her to to work-related stuff on Monday. She has much more pressing bloggy/Twilight-related stuff to catch up on. You're a doll - thx!]. I am sure that she has a LOT of cursing and general smuttiness to catch up on given how long she's been absent...
Anyhoo, Robert Pattinson's 2006 made-for-TV movie The Haunted Airman comes out on dvd this Tuesday! I think I am kind of excited. I know that we have thrown Rpatts' acting chops under the bus with alarming frequency here at Twitarded [we pick 'cause we love!], and I think that this will give us a chance to really see what's what. Oh and yeah there's that scene where he's all nekkid in the tub. And in general he just looks gorgeous in the stills I have seen. Plus - bonus! - it's a BBC film and I can actually say it's a "film" and not a "movie" without chortling to myself!!
I haven't pre-ordered this, but I think I will go ahead and buy it - nobody buys birthday presents for me better than me! Seriously, the entire month of October, I rationalize any unnecessary purchases with the b-day thing. I just give Mr. Snarky a running list of all the stuff he's kinda bought for me but didn't have to go through the trouble of shopping for and everyone is happy. I know this system isn't particularly romantic but fuck it, flowers are overrated and it works for us. Win-win!
I actually became more interested in The Haunted Airman after I came across this video the other day, since it's set to a song I really love (if you haven't seen the video for Gary Jules' Mad World, I highly recommend checking it out here!) -
Here's the "official" trailer -
I'm not sure how I'm gonna get through the next 39 days, but I think this might help.
The ratings are mixed... At IMDb, I was reading some of the reviews and they give a breakdown of members who have rated it by age and gender. Um, not surprisingly, the chicks dig it a lot more than the dudes. Also not surprisingly, the women in my age group rank it highly, second to only the under-18 set.
|Aged under 18||31||7.1|
|Males under 18||3||5.1|
|Females under 18||28||8.3|
|Males Aged 18-29||29||3.3|
|Females Aged 18-29||157||6.7|
|Males Aged 30-44||9||5.1|
|Females Aged 30-44||37||8.0|
|Males Aged 45+||11||2.9|
|Females Aged 45+||9||7.8|
|Top 1000 voters||7||3.7|
What do you think?? Have you seen this?? Do you want to see it??? Are you going to buy it??? Oh - and are you afraid of spiders??? Then this might not be the flick for you!
