Movie Marathon

Ah... it's been a while since I've written anything about myself... haha... :) Nothing much to say... but just two days ago I finished watching Star Wars Episodes 1 to 3. and the day before that I also finished the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I'm actually proud of myself right now. Well, for one thing, I don't watch a lot of movies. Ok, I'm a little lazy when it comes to watching movies, believe it or not, only a few movies catch my attention (I don't know why that is... probably a glitch in my system). The only movie I'd surely, and I swore to watch on the big screen is Harry Potter, I've never missed one of its releases, and I do not plan to... I'm an HP addict, from the books to the movies...

I never really appreciated Star Wars and LOTR before. Well, one of the reasons might have been because I haven't seen their first movies, like The Phantom Menace, for Star Wars or The
Fellowship of the ring for LOTR, when they were released on the cinemas before. And watching their sequels: Two Towers (Only the parts with Legolas, coz I love Orlando Bloom), and Clone Wars without seeing the first movies did not help in making me appreciate (like I said, a glitch in my system... I have/want to watch from the beginning).

Then, one time, when my cousin and myself were talking, we got to the topic of movies, then he mentioned Lord of the Rings, and then I asked him if it was nice. He said yes, and contrary to what other people are saying about watching HP and LOTR--which is "if you like HP, you would
n't like LOTR", he told me that "if I like HP then I'll surely love LOTR too." He's my cousin, so I trusted him... So one time, when I was searching for HP movies (because I only had the Sorcerer's stone on CD->haha, yeah CD), I also searched for the Lord of the Rings, and while doing so, I stumbled into Star Wars... and then... dandandandan *** Movie marathon time...

I'm so happy I watched the movies, they're great!! And now they're part of my favorite movies list. Watching them made me see some of the er... little negatives of the twilight movie-->don't get me wrong, I think the Twilight movie's fine, and I like Robert Pattinson *hearts* , but the effects, the changes in the storyline, the lack of background music, gets so visible after watching the said movies (SW, LOTR, I watched HP again, and I'm still awed by the greatness of it. My favorite so far is the 4th Movie: Goblet of Fire, I can't wait for the 6th Movie *wide grin* I've been waiting for it since last year... 5 more months to go or is it 6?~). Back to twilight: I like the books better-->Well I suppose in most cases, the books are always better than the movies (I'm so IN LOVE with Edward Cullen!! I keep wishing that I'm Bella each time I read the books--> I've read the books quite a few times already, and still I want to read them again, and again, and again...). :)

I know I'm getting off the topic, sorry can't help it... :) I started off with Star Wars and Lord of the Rings, and I went to Harry Potter, and then Twilight, and then books.. Gosh, I'm getting lost on this post... haha, I think I better stop now... I'll try to arrange my thoughts, and hopefully post something decent later on.
