Screaming. SCREAMING!

LOL, I can't imagine this on tv tbh. I won't mind it, no doubt, but this is super long for a spot/commercial. (Why am I trying to find fault in a long tv spot ft. Zac Efron? 'Girl, BYE' at me, for real!)

Come April? Imma be first in line to see this!

All my heart wishes that this film was very successful.

It is interesting to me, those songs from this trailer are used in the film, or not?

Okay, as long as I'm not the only one who thinks that.

Still excited for this movie regardless.

Ok, at approximately 1:06 is she looking down the FRONT of our boy's shorts?

Stop it RIGHT now, because WHY did I rewind that part for days?? I'm not kidding, I was like YES, GIRL UNZIP THOSE PANTALONES!

Is there somewhere I can watch this that doesn't require fucking flash player? I did get it to run on the WhoSay site, but a box keeps popping up with an object error and I have to keep clicking it to make it go away.

I don't think is literally a "TV spot" but a video release for the fans. Lots more to come, I'm sure.

Kinda interesting...there's a little predestination and/or predeterminism in here (Plato versus Aristotle), although Sparks is probably unaware of the philosophical implications. For him it's just more of the "it was fate for us to be together" stuff.

I'll focus on fate and Zac's uber hottness and forget the dialogue that is so bad, its almost laughable. Since Shakespeare, romance as a category has lost its value. I mean, compare "you should be kissed" with this:

But soft, what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun.
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief
That thou, her maid, art far more fair than she.

Which makes you shudder in the loins?

For me, its the sophisticated, extended metaphor, the personification, the contrast of light and dark. No wonder Juliet invited him up to spend the night. Any woman would have picked her own chastity belt at that point (although Romeo's monologue is unheard by Juliet.)

When Zac plays Romeo, THEN I'll gush all over the place. He'd be perfect for that part too - the hopeless, lost romantic, despairing first over Rosaline and then over Juliet. Swooning sigh...

Actually, I can hear Zac's voice reciting those lines (echoes from Me & Orson Welles?).

This would be a hoot: overdub the TLO dialog track in Elizabethan English.
countessm3countessm3 on March 8th, 2012 07:27 pm (UTC)
Oh, PLEASE. Do it. Seriously, that would improve the movie 100%. Somebody make it happen.
what in the worldpolly_amore11 on March 8th, 2012 03:48 pm (UTC)
I say... I do much rather prefer your dialogue, countessm3.

Alas, until and when Zac plays such a role, I myself will continue to rush about for not being able to RESIST his charms!

As far as kisses go, this is so much more fun:

If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.

Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,
Which mannerly devotion shows in this;
For saints have hands that pilgrims' hands do touch,
And palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.

Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too?

Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer.

O, then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do;
They pray, grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.

Saints do not move, though grant for prayers' sake.

Then move not, while my prayer's effect I take.
Thus from my lips, by yours, my sin is purged.

Then have my lips the sin that they have took.

Sin from thy lips? O trespass sweetly urged!
Give me my sin again.

countessm3countessm3 on March 8th, 2012 07:25 pm (UTC)
Ah, Lilly, the scene at the masked ball - sigh. Now I'm imagining Zac in Renaissance garb whispering to me beside a darkened column, and I say:

Sweet Zac, make me immortal with a kiss.
(He kisses me.)
His lips suck forth my soul: see where it flies!
Come, Zac, come, give me my soul again.
Here will I dwell, for heaven is in these lips,
And all is dross that is not Zachary.

O, thou art fairer than the evening air
Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars;
Brighter art thou than flaming Jupiter
When he appear'd to hapless Semele;
More lovely than the monarch of the sky
In wanton Arethusa's azur'd arms;
And none but thou shalt be my paramour!

(courtesy of Mr. Marlowe).

Or, with a modern spin:

Though many would disagree
man is beauty's greatest achievement
her proudest fare, for if she'd
preen on green or flickering fall
she'd truly be fraudulent.

She knows it too, for his is the fairest hue,
tendered winter white with red roses
and a slip for lip - oh that gorgeous lip! -
a red crescent cast high in the sky
for us to see but not to reach.

Were I to die, let me die lingering
on these lips, having savored
the full flavor of their soft innocence,
their buttery caresses; pray time collapses
before the moment passes.

- Moi

O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?
countessm3countessm3 on March 9th, 2012 01:29 am (UTC)
We shall parry again on the morrow,
for the fox is afoot and methinks I hear
the nightingale sing.

Till then may thou dream sweet dreams.

(Which is to say, I'm all out of wit for today.)
