Feel pretty apathetic about this whole set, but I've kind of found that nowadays I'm not iconning so much as to be a ~elite icon maker, more so to have a bit of a play/worship somethings cinematography. Anyway, onwards.

Hover over the icons for the subjects...

I don't know what you're talking about, all of these are so gorgeous!!!! Lost, The Wire, and Wuthering Heights in particular are killing me with their perfection.

I'm so obsessed with your coloring. Particularly in those Wuthering Heights ones. OMFG. (btw, did you actually see that movie? I've been dying to but I haven't seen any downloads nor have I heard about it actually being in theaters - but I saw the trailer whenever it came out and ABOUT DIED, it looks so good)

AND TWO DESMOND ICONS????? djskfsjdkfsdjfks.

I think 11 is my favorite though - those shadows are incredible.

I did see it! (at the Sydney Film Fest) I'm pretty sure that it's not getting cinematic release here (or if it does, it'll be in like, 2 cinemas), but it. was. so. good. Funnily enough it really made me notice Kaya Scolwhatsherface even though she was in it for what felt like 5 minutes. But yeah, the film gutted me. I loved it.

Haha I went through a stage where he was all I wanted to icon, and a stage for me is 2 icons so it seems :P

ALL I WANT TO DO IS PHOTOSHOP IRENE ADLER but I can't get myself excited enough for sifting through Sherlock caps.

Oh man she was only in it for a really short time?? Huh. I mean, I guess Cathy isn't physically in the book much, but film adaptations usually seem to milk her for all she's worth. So it's good to know that it sticks to the book more!! Hopefully it leaks online or shows up in cinemas in the States. I really want to see it! The book is in my top 5 of all time. I love it, and I love all of the movie versions, even the shitty ones. (Have you seen the MTV version starring Erika Christensen?? God, it's SO TRASHY, but it's SO GOOD IN A BAD WAY. I used to be obsessed with it.)

Funnily enough it was really heavily focused on Cathy/Heathcliff's relationship in the ~early years, and it kind of skips over a bunch of stuff in the book, but as a film it works amazingly well. The cinematography just seems to encapsulate every single little emotion that I felt when I read it (I don't know how that works, but the visual tone of it was just ugh), and yeah. It's just a tight film, I thought.

And lol noooo I haven't seen the MTV version but it's 13.5% in vuze right now! :P
lindseytunaeverynight on June 27th, 2012 06:38 pm (UTC)
Oh god, I hope you enjoy the bullshit of the MTV version. They tried to make it like a rock musical and mostly failed horribly, but for some reason I still loved it when I was like 15. Mike Vogel is super hot, ok? And the soundtrack is actually kind of awesome.

lol, it's kind of reminding me a little bit of The Wiz - have you seen that? It was when they tried to make The Wizard of Oz all ~ghetto... ohhh boy.
lindseytunaeverynight on June 28th, 2012 07:20 pm (UTC)
Oh yes, I own The Wiz actually. The Wizard of Oz is my favorite movie of all time and as a kid I was obsessed with anything even remotely related to it - included all of the horrible cartoons they used to put out. I didn't like The Wiz though. It scared me too much. Those fucking horrible motorcycle flying monkeys or whatever? And Michael Jackson's terrifying make-up. Literally everything about it creeped me out. Any movie that cries to compare Oz to DETROIT needs to go home.

On that note, have you ever seen Return to Oz? I love that movie, even though it scared me just as much. It's a sequel to the Wizard of Oz, only it's way fucked up - Dorothy's aunt and uncle think she's crazy so they send her to a mental institution, which she breaks out of and sneaks back to Oz only to find out that it's been destroyed and is now ruled by this terrifying monster of a woman WHO CHOPS OFF THE HEADS OF PRETTY YOUNG GIRLS AND WEARS THEM BECAUSE SHE DOESN'T HAVE ONE. And instead of Toto, Dorothy has a pet chicken. And literally everything about it is some drug-induced nightmare, but I love it.

I just looked up the scene when the heads come to life because I haven't seen the movie in years and I remember it HORRIFIED ME and... yup. It's still the scariest thing ever.

Oh hush, your icon updates are always a highlight when I check my icons filter. Defintely taking some Wire. I had to make some of my own because NO ONE ICONS THIS SHOW. So now I've got more, yay!

WHY DOESN'T ANYBODY ICON IT? I know it's kind of ~old, like gee whiz it's been off for half a decade but whatever... it's super pretty in this gritty grungy lovely way.

I KNOW RIGHT?!?!!?! And people icon "old" fandoms all the time. But it's just a small fandom. And I don't know why because it is literally one of THE best television shows. Ever. Next time I rewatch I'm gonna cap random shots and icon it more.
katemotorized on June 27th, 2012 11:15 pm (UTC)

That's exactly what I did, so now I've got all these random caps flying around... Same with The Sopranos but I haven't done any of those ones yet.
