Home of the all-around movie/book/TV/music geek girl. 21 years old; college student majoring in Film with a minor in Art History. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Fan of (in alphabetical order): Woody Allen, Wes Anderson, Blackadder, The Blacklist, Doctor Who (and - to a lesser extent - Torchwood), Elementary, Freaks and Geeks, Grimm, Harry Potter, House, Indiana Jones, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Inspector Lewis, James Bond, Jane Eyre, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Law & Order (all kinds), Lost, LOTR, the Millennium trilogy (Stieg Larsson); Murder, She Wrote; The Nanny, Paul Newman, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Project Runway, Pushing Daisies, Saturday Night Live, Sherlock, Three's Company (though I am usually laughed at for that), The Twilight Zone, Undeclared, Tom Waits, The Who, movies in general (especially older movies but not exclusively), analyzing movies via a blog (http://theironcupcake.wordpress.com) and many other awesome things. I think I'm an INTJ, if you know about MBTI.

365 Day Movie Challenge - #65: High and Low (1963) - dir. Akira Kurosawa
It’s a fine film, though it’s a little too talky in the beginning. Toshirô Mifune and Tatsuya Nakadai (my mom refers to Nakadai as “the handsome one” of the cops) are both excellent, as one might expect, though Kyôko Kagawa has sadly little to do as Mifune’s wife and Takashi Shimura communicates more through facial expressions than dialogue in his brief bit of screen time. Still, it’s another well-designed Kurosawa crime drama. Isao Kimura and Kenjirô Ishiyama also deserve mention as two of the other cops, and Tsutomu Yamazaki does a good job as the kidnapper.
