Faramir by eomers_elf

Movie geekage

For years I've wanted my own copy of one of my favorite movies but I've been resolutely refusing to buy it because the DVD features were crap and I figured if there was a movie that deserved a bells and whistles special edition, this was it. Well, my wait is over. The Shawshank Redemption with bells and whistles, baybeeeee.

And in new movie news, the film version of Friday Night Lights, one of my favorite books, hits theaters today. Football bores me silly, but this book is one of the best reflections on sports and society I've ever read. And the movie features Billy Bob Thornton, today's pick for Vaguely Sleazy Guy I Think Is Hot in Spite of Myself.

By the way, you know what's really amusing? Hearing a couple of resolutely straight guys nonetheless list off actors they think are hot and really getting into it. I'm not naming names, but someone's got a thing for Boromir and Faramir. Which I can totally understand. They poked holes in my theory that everyone wants to do David Bowie, though.

And in a piece of non-movie news, if you need a pick-me-up, go check out ariedana's Best of LJ thread. It's really sweet.
