Television Series:
001. House, S1 (currently watching)
002. Pushing Daisies, S1 - one of my all-time favorite shows and seasons; this is a rewatch and totally deserving. I'm so glad I bought this dvd set and am so sad this show was canceled before it's time. *sigh*
003. Sanctuary, S1 (currently watching)
004. Firefly, complete series (currently re-watching)
005. Buffy, S3 (currently re-watching)
006. Pushing Daisies, S2 - see above. This show never ceases to make me happy. I miss having that weekly bright spot in my life. It also makes me want to eat pie. And honey.

001. It's Complicated (2009) - romance/comedy - ★★★★★ - Hilarious!
I loved this movie and can't wait until it's out on dvd so I can buy it and keep it around the house for when I need a laugh and something uplifting. Meryl, Alec, Steve, and John were amazing... Especially the part when John gets high in the bathroom with Meryl and Alec. LOL.
002. Paper Heart (2009) - documentary/romance/comedy - ★★★ - Cute.
Parts of this movie were really cute. I loved the interviews. I really couldn't get on board with the Michael Cera romance, though. He was awkward. She was awkward. The whole thing was really AWKWARD. Meh.
003. Avatar (2009) - science fiction/fantasy/romance - ★★★ - Pretty.
I give this movie three stars only because it was pretty. The world James Cameron created was beautiful, but the movie itself was too long and too familiar. Dances with Smurfs, the Last Samurai in Space, etc, etc. I really think the only thing that made this movie interesting was seeing it on the big screen in 3D. Otherwise, it was just an average movie. I wasn't really impressed. I had a lot of problems with it, actually. From a feminist standpoint, an intellectual standpoint, a non-violent standpoint, etc. Pretty much the only things I liked about the movie were Sigourney Weaver's performance and world of Pandora.
004. Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs (2009) - family/comedy/animated - ★★★ - Cute.
Nothing special. The voices were good and the concept was amusing, but it's definitely not my favorite animated movie. Worth a watch, but I feel no need to see it again.
005. Alice in Wonderland (2010) - family/adventure/action/fantasy - ★★★★ - Strong and Beautiful.
What I liked about this one were strong themes of feminine and female independence, the new twists on a classic tale, the animation and 3D visualizations, the music, the voices, and, of course, Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter.

001. God Help the Girl - God Help the Girl (2009)
002. Little Boots - Hands (2009)
003. Jamie Cullum - The Pursuit(2009)
004. The Swell Season - Strict Joy (2009)
005. Imelda May - Love Tattoo (2008)
006. Jimi Hendrix - Valleys of Neptune (2010)
007. She & Him - Volume Two (2010)
008. The Bird and the Bee - Interpreting the Masters Volume 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall and John Oates (2010)
