Corpse Bride

by Flamingoliya

I saw this movie and I loved it. The story is romantic (read the summery below) and starts with an arranged marriage which for the first time :P gave me a good feeling about such marriages ;p

Here's a summery I got from <this link>

Blue-tinted, eye-ball-popping, maggot-infested beauty Emily (Bonham Carter) has become known as the Corpse Bride after waiting for her fiancé where the couple planned to rendezvous before getting hitched. When her groom arrives, he kills her, and she rests in the ground to wait for her soul mate, whether he knows he is the Corpse Bride's groom or not. It's a cold dark night, the moon is full, the stars are bright and the forest is a little bit creepy. Wandering through the black mangled trees, Victor (Depp) just can't memorize his wedding vows. Victor's hesitance towards marriage causes him to jumble the words. Two prominent families have arranged their children to be married in order to overcome financial difficulties. As the objects of betrothal, Victor and Victoria (Watson) met for the first time the night before their wedding. It only makes sense that Victor, a groom with cold feet, would have trouble remembering tedious wedding vows. Thus Victor ends up in the dark forest ringing his hands and muttering his vows, the vows that the Corpse Bride hears, bringing her out of the grave. Victor suddenly finds himself married to another woman, a voluptuous bombshell bride who also happens to be dead. Whisked away to the Land of the Dead, Victor finds out that living amongst corpses is not as easy as it seems. Heads easily loose their owners and eyes never seem to stay in their sockets, an adjustment that Victor seems reluctant to accept. Once taken into the Land of the Dead, it is nearly impossible to return, causing Victor to choose between risking Victoria's life or giving up his own.
Summary written by
Kate O'Kelley

My favorite quotes are: <

Barkis Bittern: Can a heart still break after it's stopped beating?

Elder Gutknecht: Why go up there when people are dying to get down here?

Old Woman: Is that you? But you've been dead 15 years! Skeleton: [grabs old woman] Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn. [kisses her]

Finnis Everglot: There's an eye in me soup.

Victor Van Dort: With this hand I will lift your sorrows. Your cup will never be empty, for I will be your wine. With this candle, I will light your way into darkness. With this ring, I ask you to be mine.

The Corpse Bride: I was a bride. My dreams were taken from me. But now - now I've stolen them from someone else. I love you, Victor, but you are not mine.

Looks interesting... Too bad the DVD is due January 31st :/

I'm gonna have to wait till then to find a decent *cough* DVD *cough* rip, instead of those lousy cam rips...

Flamingoliya said...

3ad i'm not a big fan!

olaa! you're gonna wait for more than 2 months! 3afya saber! :P
LOL, where do you get your rips from? tell me tell me. the best one i know is the little shop at A2Z.

reincarnated said...

Im with temetwir on that one.

If you guys are a fan of Johnny, i suggest Libertine.

Corpse Bride was amazing i loved how it was real literally, the exaggeration of expressions graphically portrayed of the way we exactly see ourselves whilst doin em ((erm made any sense?))

MBH said...

Flamingoliya, I only go to the movies once every 3 months or so, because everytime I go, the only thing that increases in my human chart is blood pressure & frustration! Never ever had my "joy" factor been increased by any movie that KNCC shows!
With their stupid cutting techniques...

So, instead of bashing people's heads over a movie and end up in jail, I chose to wait for DVDs, which I can either buy or download.

As where I get them, a rule I have in life :: "Why buy it when it's there for free?"
So, yes, I download ALL the movies I need. [If you are to discuss ethical issues, I have a good argument in hand...]

I use Bittorrent (Azureus to be exact) and look for anything I need here, here and here.

There you go, I gave away my sources for your pleasure... ;)

Guwa ..awal shay love your blog! thany shay, i just recently made a blog to advertise a book thats coming out and i was wondering if you could spread the word since i can see that you have your "own fan base" .. and im jealous :P click on the link and it'll take you to my blog..

BTW, they're single kuwaiti's too so that should interest you ? :P lol

Flamingoliya said...

sure you did! ;) i also liked the combination of romance, drama, comdey,and fiction.
doesn't it remind you of the movie beetle juice?

i used to go weekly but one of the reasons i stopped going often is people and especially kids pushing the chair behind my back, parents explaining the events to children, and the smell of hot cheese (nachos) and the crunching of pop corn. it drives me MAD.
and ofcourse, the cutting :P

please ARGUE about ethical issues, i'm interested.

i checked out the sites. i guess it needs time downloading. should i be scared of viruses?

thank you so much for the referral ;)


The 101
ahlain, thank you so much, please visit more often :D
we need to hear more about the book and the authors!
ofcourse they would interest us hehe if you have a review or anything, send it in.

MBH said...

Viruses :: I only download movies & music, so no! There shouldn't be any, unless you're downloading .zip files -- scan to be sure.
But for .mp3/.avi/.mpg, there's no need.

Ethical issues :: I kinda forgot the argument, but here goes nothing :p
Some people claim that downloading movies is considered as theft, but isn't pricing merchandice on a geographical basis an ethical issue too?
I'll give you a simple example :: DVDs. Why do you think they seperated the world into regions? It's a plan to squeeze more money from certain regions...

Believe it or not, many people are willing to pay, as long as movies are well priced. In fact, a new statistics show that Music Pirates buy more music (physical or from iTunes) than the average joe!

I think the MPAA or some company is gonna do an online shop for movies, where you pay and download the movie you want -- DVD quality (not sure if DVD size too).
This would be great, since regional segregation and capetalization wouldn't apply, plus, you wouldn't pay for labour, shipping, packaging, ...etc.

How do you like me so far? ;)

MBH said...

1) Excuse the spelling mistakes, I forgot to run the text through the spell-checker before posting (which I usually do).

2) I forgot to mention (although thought of it) that with the current DVD regional separation, even when you buy an original copy of a DVD, you're not allowed to play it on your DVD!!!
Well, my mom was a victim for those monopolic egg-heads, but she was lucky that I'm a techy dude.
I sniffed the internet and found the cheat-codes for our DVD player that enables the all regions mode, instead of the enforced "Region 2" mode.
Need help? Let me know.

Flamingoliya said...

and again, thanks for the info! :)
i didn't know about this segregation in pricing! reminds me of the hotmail capacity thing which increases when you change your location!
i can't emagine myself downloading a whole movie. it would take ages! i'd rather buy one.

good thing you know cheat codes, techy dude! :P

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
