I tried to resist posting more fic recs, but I just discovered two fabulous Skyfall stories that I have to share. In fact, they're the Bond/Mallory stories I've been wanting since I first saw the movie! They are thegrumblingirl's They Say He's a Wild One and Rhuia's Resonance.
In case anyone suspects that I've spent all my free time reading fic, I can assure you that I haven't. I've also been sitting inside dark movie theatres as well. Every month, the Yonge/Dundas Cineplex screens classic films. They got me in July with To Catch a Thief and The Manchurian Candidate. While I thoroughly enjoyed To Catch a Thief, I was blown away by The Manchurian Candidate. OH. MY. GOD.. If you get the chance to see it on the big screen, go, though I highly recommend it whatever the format. Just make sure you see the original and not the shitty remake. This trailer doesn't do the film justice, but it was the best one I could find on YouTube:
Speaking of films, I finally caved and bought Shaun of the Dead. I really don't know why I didn't buy it sooner -- other than the fact that I like Hot Fuzz better. However, I've had this irresistible urge to watch the first two-thirds of the Cornetto Trilogy before seeing The World's End.
I was able to find Shaun of the Dead at my local BMV for $5.99, which is pretty awesome. I think I've only seen it once, and that was shortly after Hot Fuzz came out. It's definitely been way too long. I'm really looking forward to rewatching it tonight.
