Aaaand here comes the slightly late unboxing I told you that I would do. ^^b I’m showing the content in the same order as they came in the box!
These are the first things you see when you open the box. A letter from Christopher Nolan and the reproductions of the Tumbler (from Batman Begins), Bat (from The Dark Knight Rises) and Bat-Pod (from The Dark Knight).
Next comes the villain prints from Mondo in a sturdy envelope. They are gorgeous~ I want to frame and put them on my wall! Sadly I don’t have any room (or a frame for that matter). D: The prints are 25.5×17.3 cm.
This is the large 48-page photo book of the trilogy. It’s beautiful and the inside combines both matt and shiny finishes. The photos are shiny while the background is matt (and the batman logos, not on the picture above though haha).And the finale is the disc book. A thick, hard-cover with 6 Blu-rays. Batman Begins has one disc, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises has two each (one being special features, nothing new for those that already have the movies on blu-ray) and the final disc has over 90 minutes of new special features.
Like I said on my last post: it was worth the 600 SEK i gave for this TDK: UC edition. I’m in love with it~
At least getting two days pay at the end of next month~ Doesn’t feel great right now because I missed out on playing the day away with Pokemon Y…
But hey, kinda glad I didn’t. The feeling of ecstasy stays longer that way >wÖ
It’s crazy that we got the game a day before the release date, didn’t expect it at all!Haven’t started it up yet. I might do it later but I don’t want to fall asleep in the middle of playing >w<‘
I picked up another thing yesterday! A package containiiiiiiiing:
The Dark knight triology Ultimate Collector’s Edition
I’m making an unboxing post tomorrow but I can tell you now, it’s an absolutely stunning set. I don’t previously own any of the movies (my brother got Batman begins for Christmas -06, so we have it here… still isn’t mine though c;) so it’s so worth the 600 SEK I payed for it.
I’m going to play some Catherine with my brother now. He has been nagging about it all day (even when I was at work). But first! *dun dun dun* … I have to vacuum my bedroom floor xD It’s filthy. Damn cat hair everywhere!
Good night~ I’ll be back after the sun has been up a few hours!
I’ve been trying to post but this week has required a lot of energy :’3
I was at Lovisa’s from Sunday to Monday with some friends~ It was really hot so we shot each other with water guns. When the evening came we sat around the dinner table and ate home-made pizza.In the morning it was blazing hot again and we ate breakfast outside. Our own redneck seemed to enjoy it.
Then Robin and I went to his place and had a season 6-marathon of True Blood… which was great. I’ve catched ut AND I didn’t have to feel like dying inside while waiting (because of some of the cliff-hangers)! Robin will come here on Tuesday and we’ll see the new episode together c:
Wednesday… I did nothing special but when I decided that we needed to buy tickets to the premiere of Monsters University, I got a lot of questions and disappointment >w<‘
Many can’t come because they don’t have money. And my brother and his friends wanted to go too so they asked me tons of questions (like: when, where, how ect.)…and in the end the one who asked the most dropped out.
Yesterday Robin, Marcus and I bought 5 tickets to the premiere so it’ll be us and my brother and his friend Gustav ^_^b
Now that I’ve written everything down… it doesn’t sound like much *_* But I’m totally exhausted and I think it’s because of the lack of sleep. I can’t go to bed until early morning so to wake up at 10 really destroys me.
Right now I’m watching It’s kind of a funny story and I can really relate to what Craig is saying sometimes. I really like the movie~ And you should watch it!
^ This week in two word. “Like a house on fire”(? I blame google if it isn’t right) or “in full speed” in Swedish :’3
I’ve been working these past two days and that’s why I haven’t written anything. It’s literarily been: wake up, put workclothes on, work and eat. But today is Evil Dead-time! :D (And then work again tomorrow)
The movie doesn’t start until nine but I’m going home to Merielle so we can hang. Her sister is piercing her navel at four so I’m trying to find a bus that times that! Should come one soon and I’m ready!… just waiting for my parents.
See you guys tonight… or when the weekend starts *w*
Good evening! Been out all day today hehehe.
Went to Merielle’s house to just hang out (watch her play Dumb Ways To Die and play some AC:NL) and then we met up with Arashi~ We were both about a half hour late (but either of us knew since everyone’s phones were turned off), it turned out fine in the end!
Then Merielle and I took the tram to the cinema to pay for our Evil Dead tickets :D We’re going to see it on Thursday~ I’ve never seen a horror movie on the big screen… it’s going to be fun and probably creepy as hell!
You just have to google it to see how disturbing the movie is *_*b
Afterwards we ate because we were so hungry and we also bought candy! I’m saving mine till Thursday :3
On the way out from the house this noon, we caught the mailman and demanded our mail, he gave them to us (in exchange for a peak at my mom’s id-card) c:Our games were here! I ordered Pokemon Mystery Dungeons Gates to Infinity to my brother (my mother asked me to) but what I didn’t know (until Thursday) was that they had ordered games from my wish list too ♡
My new games :D
I got a surprise too, the missing tunnels came! Never86 gave me a pair of white plugs too, unfortunately they aren’t the same size but since I got them for free as compensation I won’t complain… it’s just a little ironic haha.
My mom called me not too long ago to tell me that I’ll be working two days this week. And there’s a schedule for the next two weeks *dun-dun-duun*, my boss is actually organized c:
It’ll be really good for my economy… and really bad for my body >w<
But hey, If people have been working there for 25 years, I should be able to handle to work four days in a row… right? °w°’
I’m going to play my lovely games now! See you tomorrow~
Good noon! :D
It’s already Saturday, wa-wa-waam~ Yesterday I didn’t have any lessons but I had made plans to see The Great Gatsby with Marcus, so I still had to go to the city.
Before actually taking the bus to central Gothenburg, my parents and I ate ice cream at an ice cream parlour fairly close by! I took the usual, a scoop of polka in a wafer *yummy* ♥
Then I took the fauna-hot bus for 40 minutes and I came in to Gothenburg at the same time Marcus did.
We picked up the tickets and then decided to walk across Gothenburg to The English Shop (awesome store with expensive imported goods from England). There I got a big pack RAINBOW NERDS! :D
We walked past really cozy houses in Haga.
After we were done at The English Shop, Marcus and I decided to eat at Burger King because we hadn’t eaten since breakfast. Friday’s “King of the day” is Chicken Royale… mmm.
We were on the premiere of The Great Gatsby so there were a quiz to win stuff before the movie started. I only knew the first question and people were so fast haha!
The movie was great! I whimpered through the last 30 minutes.
Words to discribe this movie: Surreal, Fäncy, Party Hard, Unfair, Pretty People, Unexpected Music (I kinda like it), Feels, ASSHOLES EVERYWHERE. Good, so good.
The busride home wasn’t as much fun. Rude and creepy drunk people speaking their mind because they think you can’t hear anything since you have headphones on…
Too bad there isn’t any Great white/Tiger sharks in Sweden… I wouldn’t mind if they would pay them a visit in the dark water. C:
Besides the last part of my day I really enjoyed it! Marcus and I have already decided that we will go on the pre-premiere of Man Of Steel! I hope more people will join us! I’m not a huge fan of the Superman movies but I think that this movie will be very different from all the other ones since Goyer and Zimmer are awesome! (And Snyder, totally forgot Snyder! Ö^Ö’)
I woke up and saw that Eora had linked the video above.
Now, I got sad of the idea that disney won’t be making any more hand drawn 2d feature length films. The movies we grew up with, the ones called classics are beautiful! But as I looked into this a bit more in-depth, Bob Iger, the Chief Executive of the Walt Disney Company, said this (at an annual shareholders meeting in Phoenix, Arizona this past Wednesday):
“To my knowledge we’re not developing a 2D or hand-drawn feature animated film right now. There is a fair amount of activity going on in hand-drawn animation but it’s largely for television at this point. We’re not necessarily ruling out the possibility [of] a feature but there isn’t any in development at the company at the moment.” – Bob Iger, Chief Executive of the Walt Disney Company
He’s not actually saying that there won’t be any more hand drawn movies, they are just not being made right now/planned yet! This is because the last two hand drawn movies, The princess and the frog and Winnie the Pooh earned a lot less money than the 3D animated movies: Tangled and Bolt.
The princess and the frog$267 million Winnie the Pooh $33 million Bolt $310 million Tangled $590 million
There’s no doubt that this is a decision made to make more money. But even if this is the case, let’s in the meanwhile enjoy the 3D movies being made, because let’s be honest, we enjoy the beautiful animations and the heart-breaking stories even though they aren’t hand drawn…
In late 2013, Frozen has it’s premier (or well November 27th in NA but February 7th in Sweden! :c). It’s based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale The Snow Queen.So are you still going to watch upcoming Disney movies or are you going on a strike? Maybe you haven’t had an interest in Disney movies at all?
I’m going to list what I’m going to do this weekend! :D
the movies I borrowed from the library yesterday! I’ve already watched The Flowers of War (highly recommended If you want to both cry floods and smile/laugh) and have Lord of the Flies (1963) left. Kind of read the book in english (didn’t manage to read the end) so it will be interesting to see the movie interpretation.
the post-midseason finale episodes of The walking dead and Once Upon a Time.
Les Miserables in theater… alone. Everyone else cancelled on me :c Might see something else though, so I can see it with them some other day. The seats available are crappy anyway!
season one of Adventure Time!
Play (+ maybies)…
Harvest Moon Tale of two towns (The majors are not fighting as much as in the beginning, I’ve got more money. I also have two chickens, a full grown cow and a lamb. Life in Konohana is goooood~)
Maybe some Pokemon Black 2. Honesty time: I have not come far in the game! Stress made me not want to play it and now I don’t feel like it! Should try tomorrow nonetheless >w<
Maybe continue Professor Layton and the curious village… been a while now. Got stuck at an area-calculation puzzle. TIME TO PULL MYSELF TOGETHER LIKE A SIR!
I should probably do some have-to-do’s too but I’d rather not think about it right now. Have a great weekend everybody! See you tomorrow~ I still have the surprise-post (that I promised you) left to write. Hint: It’s beauty-related.
Really I do. I’m suppose to go to my friends birthday celebration today but no one I know is going, Robin is sick and Charles doesn’t feel like it…. and now I don’t feel like going anywhere either. :c So I won’t. I’m going to make it up for her though! Next time we’re going to the cinema, it’s my treat! c:
So the reason I don’t want to go anywhere is because it’s pouring outside. I just want to stay inside and watch movies or something so I think that I’m finally going to watch Casanova (Heath Ledger ♡). ^^
I went to sleep last night pretty quickly, right after Coraline which is a really beautiful movie. =w= Stop-motion ❤
Anyway when I prepared my sleeping place Robin had three rugs on his couch and when I picked them up, I got a bad feeling. They were wet. *__* Then came another nice touch, under the last rug the couch had mold on it :c Robin wipped it off and because I was so tired I didn’t give a f*ck. So I put the two almost non-wet rugs on the couch, wrapped myself in the blanket I and tried to sleep with the sound of Robin playing a game. TwT
I woke up at 08.00 (that means I got 10 hours of sleep but I’m still tired) so when Robin gets up to do something. I’m stealing his bed! >:3
For me in Sweden, it’s exactly one month till the premier! I’ve even given my mobile nr. to the site of the cinema so that when the tickets have been released… I’ll get a text *geek lvl. 1337*. I don’t really know what to expect (and I think that that’s good) but I’m really looking forward to it.
Hearing that Catwoman is back got me so exited (When Michelle Pfeiffer did her… I was blown away! SHE WAS SO BADASS ♡ I’ll never forget the rage-scene). Then I heard that the one playing her was Anne Hathaway and I was a little skeptical (I always see her as the good/innocent-but-want-to-be-bad girl) but we’ll see how she does! Really hoping I’m wrong. ^^
