I finished S3 of The Wire. Major spoilers. )

In other news, I saw Titanic 3D today. I have an embarrassing confession to make. I saw that movie like 5 times when it was in the theater the first time around. I was in my 3rd year of college and I just loved it to pieces. It was my Twilight, I guess. Anyway, I've watched it a couple of times on DVD since then and felt pretty meh about it. I just figured it'd been overexposed, I knew it too well, etc. But I still felt compelled to watch it in 3D, because of the memory of what it had once meant to me.

The 3D itself was... whatever. I barely noticed, but to be honest that's how I feel about pretty much every 3D movie. What I realized while watching it, though, is that it works on the big screen the way it just doesn't on TV. And while I could still recite all the lines (yes, some of them being very bad indeed), I could feel all those emotions I felt watching it the first time come back. The music was a huge part of that. I'm convinced now that James Horner's score, which I've always loved, actually makes half the movie. Without it, the emotional resonance just wouldn't have been there. By the end, I had myself a good cry. <g> And I wasn't the only one! I doubt many people in the theater were seeing it for the first time, but there were several people sniffling. I left the theater exhausted, but in a good way. <3

Also, ROSE'S DRESSES. I want that girl's wardrobe. Every single one is gorgeous!

Thank you sooooooooooo much to [personal profile] lanai for the DVDs. They arrived yesterday and I'm so excited to watch them!
