I can't say anything about most of that stuff. But I watched 500 Days of Summer recently. I must say, I feel as if it was a "indie" film made by a major movie factory for "indie" kids. It was kind of bland and felt kinda fake. But I did like the reflection of Han Solo followed by a dance number. But seeing that made the super cliche break up stuff all the worse.

I could see that... Mostly I just really like the actors in it and that they didn't end up getting bak together in the end (spoilers, lulz). The dance number actually irked me a bit, honestly, but the Han Solo reflection was aces.

Let the Right One In is one of the best vampire films I have seen in years. I lent it to my friend and I'm trying to get it back, but it is truly amazing. Glad things are making you happy!! Kisses.

ive been meaning to see avatar, but dont want to spend any money to see it.

i streamed 500 days of summer just the other night. i thought it was alright. i loved the actors, but summer sort of got to me because i mean, ive had the biggest crush on gordon joseph levitt for AGES. plus the character was so perfect and everything. and she doesnt care. like ARG!!! get it together and realize how perfect he was.
too bad he was fictional, otherwise id certainly have taken him!

Shit yeah, dude, he's so adorable and funny and she's all rolling her eyes and being way too cool. I was upset on his behalf for sure.

I think I would have been able to enjoy Avatar if it hadn't been heralded as the greatest movie ever. If people had been saying things like, "It's a good action movie with neat special effects," then I think I might have liked it more...
