The Lost Boys

Saturday night I watched a movie that's been around for over twenty years. A movie that focuses on one of my favorite subjects/genres. A movie that, somehow, I had never seen before.

A movie called The Lost Boys.

I'm not sure how it had escaped me for so long. I mean it's like 24 years old. But, regardless, Saturday was my first viewing.

Things I learned from The Lost Boys:

1. Slaying vampires can and will destroy your plumbing. It doesn't matter what room of the house you slay the vampire in either, if there's plumbing in Any other part of the house it's done for. We're talking exploding sinks and toilets, massive ick from the pipes, All of it. Take your vampire slaying outside.

2. Apparently some vampires Enjoying biting people in the head. Why is this? I mean, I get biting people in the legs or arms or other places like that, but the head? Not of lot of veins up there . . . Is it just because they prefer scalping?

3. Blood in a bottle is really thin. Like, it looks like watered down cool-aid.

4. It doesn't matter how bad things are. It doesn't matter who you're running from. It doesn't matter if you're turning into a vampire and you don't understand anything. It just doesn't matter . . . There is ALWAYS time to stop everything and have sex.

5. Kiefer Sutherland is pretty. He also has a great sounding voice.

6. I will Never look at Richard Gilmore the same way again! Haha.

The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Premier Recap

The Vampire Diaries Season Three Opening Recap.

Are you ready? This may be a long post.

Joseph Morgan. Did you hear that accent? Awesome! He is just so deliciously creepy. Speaking of, if I were that silly girl I would have started freaking out as soon as his accent went from "southern charmer" to "sexy Brit." But, no, she's all "I have a HUGE attitude because I'm from Florida, Jerk."

Good thing the other girl was smart enough to run. Too bad there was no where to go.

Stefan! Stefan, I have been waiting all Summer to see you again! Uh, Stefan? Why are you looking at me like that? You're SO Creepy.

It almost looks for a second like he might be nice Stefan . . . Ya know, until he starts chewing on that girls neck.

Elena. Poor Elena. Again (still?) she has to talk herself into getting out of bed and facing the day. This girl never gets a break.

Jeremy. Are Elena and Jeremy sharing a bedroom? Oh, no, it's just the strange editing. That was weird.

Wait, Jeremy works at the Grill now? I guess that's one way to get Matt into more scenes.

Caroline! I love her. Look at her, trying to pretend everything is normal. (It's so weird that Caroline is telling Elena to call her Mom for help. What?)

Aww, look who's still crashing at the Gilbert's house. Ric, don't you have your own place? Not that I mind. Actually, I think it's sweet that he's still there and I sort of think he should move in. Wouldn't that save everyone some money? (Also, really? He doesn't know how to work a coffee maker? Didn't he live alone before this? Or did he just skip the coffee and go straight to the bourbon?) Um, Ric, What is going on with your hair? Would you fix this, please?

It's sort of strange seeing Tyler back in Mystic Falls. (And Really, Caroline, really? After what he did to you, you're all chummy? I don't approve . . . I don't think.)

Andie Star, Action News! I'm not an Andie fan. I could do without her. I do sort of like that she told Damon to get his own champagne though.

Hello, Mr. Soapy (and all the strategically placed books and knick knacks.) May I just say that I Like Damon's hair. From what I've seen I'm in the minority but oh well.

I like that Damon is keeping track of Stefan, very brotherly.

Bonnie's one and only appearance in this episode is on a little tiny phone camera. You know what? I really didn't miss her.

Moving on.

Ghosts! I have no idea what the story with the ghosts is but I do like Kayla Ewell and Malese Jow are back. Especially Malese. I liked Anna.

Hi, Matt. Maybe he'll get to do something this season. He's so under used.

"Right?" Tyler cracks me up. His response there is just so "Come on, it doesn't HAVE To be crazy, please like me??"

It's Simon Camden! Why is little Simon Camden so scruffy faced and Why is he drinking??

I like (but I probably shouldn't) Klaus and Stefan's team work. Really creepy though. If Klaus wanted a wolf why didn't he just get Tyler? I mean, he was right there. (Or at least ask Tyler "nicely" where his or Jules' wolfy friends are.)

Damon and Alaric! My favorite TVD Crime Fighting Duo!

My word, Stefan is a messy, messy eater.

It's super creepy hearing Damon describe Stefan. Alaric's never going to be able to look at Stefan the same way again. He may never trust him again. Would you?

I love Caroline's line "Just because I tell you things doesn't mean you're allowed to know them."

Can you two just make out right now? Just toss those five bazillion red plastic cups off that table and have fun? Seriously. Then tension!

Look at Stefan, getting into the torture. This reminds me of someone . . . who is that . . . Was evil, then good and all broody and then, Bam! Deliciously evil again! Oh yeah! My Other favorite vampire! Angel.

Elena, darling, that dress? Really? Is that even a dress? I sort of like that she's getting ready, Damon is watching and she doesn't even react. No jumping, no eye rolling, she just comfortable around him. I think I would go so far as to say that, even though he annoys her often, she takes comfort in his presence.

Aww, Damon. I love the way he loves her.

I would like to take this opportunity to say this. The soundtrack on this show? A+++ Perfect.

Whoa. That's a lot of people. I bet they don't even know half the people at that party.

There's Jeremy, heading back to the world of drugs. Or is he? Really, he's just sitting there looking at the joint. Enter Matt, who grabs it and lights right up! Really, Matt? I thought you were the good boy.

"I am every parent's worst nightmare. I am the chaperone teacher from hell." Haha, Ric. Another one of my favorite lines.

I love that Elena just walks up and takes Damon's drink. (See? So comfy with him.) And that she does it right in front of her history teacher. Then she goes on to ask him to talk to her brother who's smoking? Girly, you're drinking! Who should talk to you?

Andie Star, Action News! This scene feels like a scene out of scream. I keep expecting to see Ghostface.

Stefan, Stefan, you're freaking me out again. Could you just smile and ask about Elena please? I miss you.

Uh oh, Damon, Elena found your closet of secrets. You're in trouble now.

"Hello, Brother." OK, I have to be honest, I maybe have squeed, out loud. That was too perfect.

Damon mentions Elena and there's no reaction from Stefan. No reaction? Stefan, what's the matter with you??

Stefan! You made Andie Star, Action News, stand on the edge of that scaffolding to scare Damon? It worked, he's a little freaked. Can you put her down now? Seriously, what's wrong with you? Klaus isn't here, you don't need to put on a show. You KNOW Andie Star, Action News! She's not some stranger. Put her down!

NO! NO! NO! Not like that! That's not what I meant! Stefan! Oh my word! You killed Andie Star, Action News!! Stefan! Where are you? I miss you! I mean, you're sexy and all like this but you're scaring the children! And me! Please come back!

Damon is scared. Damon is scared. Things can not be good when Damon is scared. Poor Damon. We all know he didn't love Andie Star, Action News but I'm sure he cared a little bit about her.

Another scene with Jeremy and Matt? I told you this was going to mean more screen time for poor, lonely Matt.

Oh, interesting, Vicki needs help. I wonder what kind of help she needs. Why doesn't Anna get to talk in this episode?

It's about time, Caroline and Tyler! Did I just say that? I'm still not sure I'm OK with Tyler but the chemistry is just too much. Too much!

Poor Damon, he doesn't even want Caroline's alcohol bottle. It's bad, people!

Here's Elena, just waiting to yell at Damon. Oh, honey, if you only knew what he was protecting you from.

Damon really laid it all out Elena there, didn't he? The only other thing I would have liked to see was a hug. Come on, Damon, she really could have used a hug there.

Matt and Jeremy again?? We get it! They're going to be new besties Maybe you could stop shoving it down our throats?

Matt, Matt, Matt, after finding out your girlfriend was a vampire and then running from werewolves, you really still have a problem believing in ghosts? Where do you live?

Klaus thinks Stefan still cares. Well, the look on his face does seem to say he still cares. But he just killed Andie Star, Action News!

 I'm sort of really upset with Alaric. Those "kids" have lost so much and he's just walking out on them. "You can do all this alone now." Really, Ric? That's sort of mean. I'm sure she CAN do it all alone but she shouldn't have too. How sad.

Uh, yeah, we get it. Caroline and Tyler getting freaky. That's enough now, please. Thanks.

Damon is just a mess. I'm sure he's just sure his baby brother is just gone. No hope, no help. Sadness.

Stefan, you look a little distressed. Could it be all that guilt? Oh, look at him, he needs a hug. (Too bad he'd probably chew you to bits if you tried to hug him.)

Elena, your phone is ringing! Pick it up! Pick it up! Oh, I was SURE she was going to miss that call.


Paul Wesley is absolutely AMAZING in this episode. He was all sexy. He freaked me out. He made me cry. "I love you, Stefan. Hold onto that."

Stefan is still in there somewhere. This is where it's different from Angel. Angel didn't care at all. Stefan does . . . Does that make him more scary or less scary?

I don't care. When he looks like he does when he's on the phone, I just don't care. Come back, Stefan!

Caroline, why didn't you just jump out the window or something? I know it's not very ladylike but it would have been faster.

Oh my word, Carol Lockwood, I HATE you! No one shoots my Caroline and gets away with it! I hope you get to spend some time with your Husband soon!

 The End.

Long post is long. Anyway, those are all my thoughts. I LOVED this episode as I love most episodes. Great opening to what I'm Sure will be a Great season!

Finale - The Vampire Diaries

I Love The Vampire Diaries! Love it!

I love all the characters. (To be honest I have less love for Bonnie but she's TONS better now than when the show first started.) I love all the stories. I just love.

The Vampire Diaries finale was one of my favorite finale's this season. So much going on and So much to look forward to next season!

Quick Rundown:

Caroline - I LOVE Caroline. I love everything about her. I don't love Matt or Tyler though! Come on guys! Tyler was just HORRIBLE to her in that one episode a while back and Matt is so stupid he can't get over that one little thing. So she's a vampire! So what!

I love Stefan and Elena, I do. But I would love to see some more scenes with Stefan and Caroline. Candice Accola is amazing and she has chemistry with just about EVERYONE! How awesome! A Stefan/Caroline romance/fling thing? I could deal!

Damon - I LOVE Damon. (My favorite character is a toss between Damon and Caroline.) I love that he's the bad boy who is trying so hard to redeem himself. I LOVED the finale! I loved that Elena forgave him. I Love that he told her he loved her and she gets to remember! I love that she kissed him! I'm excited to see where this is all going to go in the coming season. A lot of stuff happened there that won't be so easy to just forget and not talk about.

Stefan - Ripper Stefan. I have to admit I got Very Excited at the end of the finale. Stefan as the bad boy is SO Intriguing! I can't Wait to see where this story is going! If I were not coming back to TVD next season for anything else (and I am, I'm coming back for everything) THIS story would still pull me back in! In a HUGE way!

Klaus - Love. Joseph Morgan - Love. Joseph Morgan is pretty freakin' awesome. I mean it. I liked him right away. As soon as he joined Twitter I liked him. Before we even SAW Klaus, I was hooked on Joseph. I remember when everyone was talking about Klaus, before they cast the part, and speculating on who could play him. I'd never heard of Joseph Morgan before and Never would have expected him to BE Klaus. He. Is. Perfect for this part. Absolutely perfect. I'm so glad that he wasn't killed off in the finale. I'm excited to see where his story will go next season. Especially with Stefan by his side.

Elijah - Also glad he wasn't destroyed. I've enjoyed his character and I look forward to seeing more of him next season.

Alaric - Matt Davis, what's not to love? lol. I'm so sad for Alaric because of Jenna but I'm excited to see him get a little closer to Elena and Jeremy.

Anna and Vicki - Anna and Vicki! Anna and Vicki!  Yes! Anna was great, I was upset when they killed her off and I'm very happy to see her back. I have no idea where they're going with this story but I'm ready to find out!

I know I didn't cover Everyone but I covered the basics of what I thought. I love this show and I can't wait to see what happens!

Season Finales! (How I Met Your Mother)

I love May Sweeps!

I don't exactly love that a finale means that I have to wait months to find out what happens though!

I'm thinking I'm going to blog about my reaction to some of the season finale's that have aired recently. Some of these posts will be Much shorter than others.

I'm going to start right here with How I Met Your Mother.

All season we've been waiting for news about this secret wedding! All season! What did we find out? Barney's the groom and that's all we know! Who's the Bride? Nora? Robin? Someone else?

I kind of figured Lily was pregnant. Not a real surprise there.

All in all not a fabulous season finale but it was still a good HIMYM episode in general.

I told you some of these would be smaller than others. I just don't have a lot to say about this one.
