Shutter Island, and an Update

tattoo, v. frances
Let's just face it, I'm lucky if I blog once a week these days. These IS a reason for it - all my brain cells are currently focused on making huge revisions to HUNTER OF THE DEAD (aka Project Zed). The book is going to be a million times better, it's just hard work getting it there. On the upside, I'm pretty sure I'm on the right track.

Which basically means that I'm not coming up with awesome blogs posts. Or reading much. But I DID go see Shutter Island last night.



There's not a whole lot I can say about this without spoilers. But it was a really good move. VERY intense. And I have gained a new respect for Leonardo DiCaprio in the last five (ish) years. He's picked some amazing movies (like this and the Departed) and he doesn't disappoint.

One thing I WILL say is that the visuals were astounding. It is now my goal to write a book that can bring about the same emotions as just sitting there, watching Teddy and Chuck walk around exploring the island. Beautiful and creepy and sad, all at the same time.

Definitely a movie I'd reccomend. My younger brother-in-law liked it but didn't LOVE it ... because it made him think. So, I suppose you should take that into account. *grin*



On a side note - both BILs were horribly embarrassed when the preview for Clash of the Titans came on and I squealed and jumped around in my seat, hollering about my boyfriend Sam Worthington.

Sam and Katee FOREVER!!!!

(And now, back to reality...)

Shutter Island looks interesting, but way too scary for me. :-)

And Leo HAS come a long way since Titanic, hasn't he? I really like most of his movies. Great actor!

About Me

I'm an aspiring writer. My books range from zombies to djinn to retold fairy tales, and I love a good make-out scene. When I'm not lost in imaginary worlds, I'm hanging out with my two wee ones and moving around the world with my military husband.
