So it was my 18th today and yesterday, after I came home from work I was treated to the most amazing surprise party ever. My friends basically decorated my whole back patio in all things Harry Potter. They made signs, logos of all the houses, hung web around the place, put candles everywhere, someone made a snitch, a quaffle and two bludgers, they made butterbeer and they all dressed up as Harry Potter characters, it just goes on. It was just so amazing and I had to share it with all of you. I was so shocked by the extent they had gone to. It was beautiful.

    [spoiler]I don't remember anything about kissing? I think you're a little mixed up. From what I remember the reason Thomas feels betrayed is because Teresa and Aris are threatened by WICKED or something to lock him up in a chamber or something so he feels betrayed. I think that's right.

    And on the note of Teresa and Aris, aren't there theories that Teresa and Aris are siblings?[/spoiler]

    Yeah I agree with that last bit Alex. It seems really out of place.

    Also, I saw a post on tumblr earlier today that had a screenshot of James Dashner tweeting 'Rose Leslie as Brenda' but deleted it moments after. I think she has a big role in Game of Thrones. I don't know how reliable this source is but just thought I'd share.

    Alright, while we're all talking about her, I thought I'd chime in seeing as I loved that film to death.

    Her - Spike Jonze’s Her is one of the most soulful and honest perspective’s of love, relationships and the subsequent state of loneliness. Joaquin Phoenix is terrific as Theodore and I believe he is one of the most explored and adroitly developed characters in recent film, hugely due to the original script that Jonze has written so truthfully and eloquently. He has created a love story that shines above all other love stories and has given us a nuanced depiction of that. He shows many forms of love and its dimensions, but most importantly, he shows us that physical attraction is not a relationships necessity, but the ability to connect with someone through a voice; through a personality - that, is what conquers. It’s a very subjective experience and can be very personal too at times, but it still has a distinct quality that makes it an appropriate movie going experience for anyone. It manages to connect with the audience very deeply, but its ability to allow the audience to both empathise and sympathise with Theodore is one of the films finest attributes. Jonze’s direction is beautiful, harsh and fittingly funny all at the same time. It’s shot magnificently and its art direction even stands up there with the likes of Wes Anderson’s often vibrant films. Arcade Fire delivers a unique score that is subtle enough to fit in perfectly with the tone of the film. 10/10

    It needs to win Best Screenplay. No other film deserves it more than this one.

    I saw American Hustle. It wasn't bad but it also wasn't great in my opinion. The cast is just one of the best I've seen in terms of performances. I think Jennifer is definitely on her way to her 2nd Oscar. As for the film itself, I've never been a huge fan of films that involve a high level of crime and this is really what American Hustle is all about. I found it really hard to follow as well, it's quite plot heavy. It's definitely a great effort by David O. Russel though, it was just not my type of film.

    7/10

    RUSH

    Ron Howard gives us a brilliant portrayal of the brutality and daring risks that Formula 1 entails in this gripping true story of two fierce rivals. Not only is it memorable for its high stakes action sequences, but for the emotion it carries, particularly in Niki Lauda's character.

    This is the surprise of the year for me. Didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did.

    9/10
