New Year's Eve Eve !  Great tradition, you guys.

Wow, Meryl, Supper looks merviglioso!  We're there next time I'm in town, for sure.

Cheers, John, on the port indulgence.  I'm partial to a twenty-year tawny myself. :)

Still waiting for Imaginarium to make it up here...

I said to John while we were enjoying the cheese and port that you would be a perfect addition to our party, Paul.  Next time, you bet!  8)

Is there enniplace like New York for celebrating the New Year? I don't think so...not unless it's on top of Brokenback Mountain, and she's all snowed in for the winter.

Me and Sophia had tickets for the premiere of TIoDP last night. We started out a couple of hours ahead, since it was snowing and the roads were icy. When we were about halfway to the city where the cinema is, her wheel started to shake and strange noises were coming from the front of the car. We pulled over at a gas station and tried to figure out what was the matter. We were unable to do so and found it way too risky to get on the freeway which is necessary for the last stretch into the city. So we drove back home and ended eating up pizza in our hometown. O0
We are gonna try and see it next week though.  8)

Sophia and I finally got to see TIoDP tonight.

I had very mixed feeling sitting down in my seat, knowing this would be the last time I would get to see a new movie with Heath.
Before the movie started the showed a Prince of Persia trailer btw.

I think I was also afraid that I was gonna hate the movie. I wanted to like it, I wanted Heath to be brilliant in it.

And I liked the movie from the start and couldn't wait for Heath's character to appear. I was prepared for what kind of entry he would make, still to see him hanging there...tears began to flow down my cheeks. That scene felt soooo long.

It was really enjoyable to watch Heath - they way he talked, his movements and facial expressions (which often reminded me of The Joker).

Often I forgot to concentrate on the action, simply because I was so wrapped up in watching Heath or listening to that distinct voice of his. I didn't want to miss anything he did or said.

I think it worked out well with Farrell, Law and Depp. Of the three of them, Jude Law was definitely my least favourite. I though that Colind Farell did a very good job and he seemed relaxed in his  role.  

I felt sorta anxious throughout the movie. Every time Heath was off-sceen, I was afraid he wasn't coming back on again and I didn't want that. I wanted more and still do damn it.

Overall though, I had a lot of fun watching. I laughed quite often and so did the rest of the audience The theatre was almost full tonight.

Itīs been an emotional evening, hence my shortreview.

So nice to hear your thoughts, fresh from the theater. It's not playing in Denver yet, what's going on?
