Over the Moon.
I saw yesterday that Rent is making it's Broadway revival, which reminded me that I've never seen the movie or the show. I had the intention on watching the movie back in 2005 when it was released on DVD, but after I got home from Blockbuster with it and started watching it I got... bored(?) with it, so turned it off.
5 years later, I decided to give it another go. I downloaded the movie, and starting watching it in between classes. I was feeling it this time. I really liked seeing Idina Menzel in that movie! She was great. The character of Mimi however, I was not feeling. Nor did I like Roger. I liked the story, but felt the movie was underwhelming.
With that in mind, I downloaded Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway which was it's last show on Broadway 2008. It was so much better than the movie! It moved at a faster pace, Mimi's voice didn't make me cringe, I loved the characters so much better. It was just so much better overall. I totes recommend it!
On a more sombre note... Aiden was voted off X Factor. Its devastating, especially for Matt Cardle, since the two were BFFs. I'm going to miss Aiden. He was one of my favorites. :(
