    I didn't realize that watching someone sit on a computer and fap all day could be considered entertainment.

    It's been some time since I've watched The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly but yeah, it is a classic of classics that's for sure. Even though I love documentaries I don't get watch as many I'd like these days. Jiro Dreams of Sushi looks really interesting! Sushi is so wonderful, I mean it's art you get to eat. What's not to love?
    Lmao. :U Cheeky, but you made me laugh. Yeah, I actually learned way more than I thought I would in that class, and ended up watching Seven Samurai twice while writing two papers on it. I mean holy smokes, Kurosawa was a genius of film, even a plebeian like me can recognize that. I do seem to like long meandering films, 'cus I also liked Dances With Wolves. Anyway. The Jiro documentary is great because not only is it an hour and a half of the world's best sushi porn, but to see someone that dedicated at their craft is always inspiring. I was riveted (and starving) through the entire thing.

    I watched Fantastic Mr. Fox again this week. Such a pretty movie. Don't care much for Clooney's voice.

    It's basically a movie about a little kid who's trying to stop Santa from coming because he's going to take away all of the naughty children and eat them or something like that. Based entirely off Finnish lore.

    I don't think it was supposed to be a horror film though. It was just really weird and creepy.
    It's a humour flick.
    We have a weird sense of humor, pretty dark.
    Also it's not really based on Finnish folklore. It's based on a bunch of short films the crew made earlier that are way better than the movie itself.
    They're on youtube.

    My most recent movie has got to be Frogs.
    It is a movie about killer frogs who don't really even kill anyone. A bunch of retarded wealthy people die to their own stupidity and the vast amounts of frogs get the blame.
    It's a b-class horrof movie.

    I kind of figured :B
    Netflix is kind of misleading though because I think it labeled it as a horror film. But then again they tend to label anything that simply has monsters in it as horror.

    Really? It just seemed like it was loosely based on it because of all the stuff towards the beginning.

    Oh my gosh, Frozen was amazing! I've seen it soooo many times. It had it's flaws but nothing so major that it took away from the viewers experience.
    Well, if you liked the first one, you will definitely like the second one. They literally make fun of everything there is to make fun of, lol.

    And I want to see Frozen so badly .-. no one will go with me though.

    As far as the folklore goes, the extent of it is that it's santa claus, and he came from korvatunturi. Everybody knows good ol' santa lives in Finland :V
    But the horns, elves and stuff is just making something most people love, into something most people dislike. That is a monster who kidnaps children with the help of naked old people.

    We used to have an older version of santa though, called Kekripukki and some people say he was the meanest son of a runt and actually took things. People would dress as him (Santa claus is called Joulupukki, and the literal translation is Christmasgoat. He is still the same Coca Cola fat man we all know though, but with a weird name.) I think that's where the horns came from, "goat", and/or to bear more resemblence to satan idk.
    While Kekri wasn't exactly christmas, or new year, it was the end of the harvest season or something, sort of comparable to modern festivities around the new year. We stopped celebrating Kekri when the church told us so hundreds of years back, when the church had a lot more power than today.
    I'm a little fuzzy on the ancient folklore, but I think what they wanted to do with him could be merging the old and the new. But that is just speculation on my behalf so that's why I said it hasn't got much to do with the folklore.

    End of Finn folklore 101 :V

    As for the movie bit, I just saw Hardware (1990).
    It was a 90's cyberpunk film featuring an adorably old vision of the dystopian post apocalyptic future with a killer robot and prosthetic limbs and scavengers.
    I saw the robot and I just had to watch the film to see where it came from.

    Pretty sure it was Princess Mononoke. Great movie, somewhat sad and yet hopeful at the same time.
