I miss my girlfriend like crazy and so have been neglecting my fannish duties, so here's a couple of wallpapers to make up for it.

ahkna: (RENT La Vie Boheme)


It was so, so amazing. Waaaay better than I even dared hope it would be and I think I had really high expectations. Except now it's well past midnight and I need to sleep. More coherent thoughts/in-depth examination tomorrow after I get back from class.

But yeah, I was a little hesitant about her but I am so madly in love with Tracie Thoms now it's not even funny.

The Globe and Mail reviewed RENT today. Liam Lacey gave it 2 1/2 out of 4. That still means it's good because the G&M gives rarely gives anything in English higher than a three. Then he went on to call Mark "Martin" and Joanne "Jennifer". Their names, especially Mark's, are featured very prominently in songs and I assume in dialogue as well. That really pissed me off that several essential things about the movie are wrong. How are you supposed to trust a newspaper that doesn't even fact check?

Twelve hours from now I'll be sitting in the theatre with my best friend watching RENT. I'm already vibrating with excitement.

Unfortunately, I still have three classes, a review of literature to hand in, a project proposal to finish and 40 pages of seminar readings to do before. Rarr! I can't even concentrate I'm so excited.

I've been listening to the Rent Movie Soundtrack supplied by the superfantastic [livejournal.com profile] sinful_caesar and I have to admit that I'm pretty disappointed. In Idina especially, as much as it hurts me to say. "Over the Moon" seemed flat and devoid of the emotion I think her performance should have. I know that Dee's voice is sexy and clear and soaring and downright beautiful and "Over the Moon" and "Take Me or Leave Me" used to showcase them but these versions just don't. During "La Vie Boheme", which is by far my favourite from the OBC, they all sound highly bored.

I love "Seasons of Love" and "One Song Glory" but maybe that's because they sound very similar to the OBC versions, if a little more polished. I do love Rosario's voice though, especially during "Light My Candle". It's breathy and sexy.

Maybe it's just that it's ten years later and the cast is more experienced and not as thoroughly young and excited. The whole thing lacks the exuberance and passion of the Original Broadway Cast.

This is actually a pretty negative review. I really, really want the movie to rock and for some reason I think that the scenes are going to have to overcome the songs. Hmmm, I won't know until I see it.

So, who's got a ripped copy of the new Rent trailer?

I want this poster so fucking bad. I will pretty much die if they have it at the uni poster sale in October.

Saw Bewitched tonight. And ew. Will Ferrell should never kiss people. My favourites are pretty obvious: Cheno, Michael Caine and Shirley Maclaine. Speaking of Shirley, she kind of disappeared which sucked because she rocked hard. But wow, Cheno was the most adorable thing I had ever seen. And the little snippets of singing? *swoon* I can't wait until this comes out on DVD just so I can screencap all the Cheno scenes.

It was really all about the Rent trailer. I laughed, I cried, I squealed.

I didn't know that the guy that wrote the Rent movie script was the same guy that wrote 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower'. I absolutely adore that book.

And I was just thinking today about how long it had been since I had seen "Loss" and then I turn on SVU when I get home from work and there it is! Alex and Olivia were so in love! And I believe it moreso after reading that the writers put HoYay! in there on purpose.

Newest video from the Rent blog. Rosario is the cutest thing ever. I want to put the entire Rent cast in my pants pocket because they are so fucking adorable.

I watched the Rent trailer again last night and it seriously made me cry. I can already tell that I'm going to cry during the movie.

Anne Bancroft died on Monday.

Some are pretty low-qual because, well, the trailer was. But I feel these ones are the most important because they're the hottest pictures of hottest actors:
