Yesterday was a milestone for this little blog: 100,000 hits!
I remember the day I started Thundie’s Prattle, nearly ten months ago, and how excited I was when I had 25 hits that day. I thought, “Holy cow, people are actually reading this baby!” When I reached 4,444 hits (and it was a long time getting there) I even took a screenshot of the number, haha.
To reach 100,000 hits is pretty mind-boggling for me (although I know some of you bloggy folks get that number in a week), so you don’t mind if I celebrate, do you?
I was at the mall today and chanced upon a movie I’ve always wanted to watch but was too afraid to. But ever since I laughed my head off watching Episode 1 of Hometown of Legends 2009, I’ve worked up a teeny bit more courage for the horror genre. Moreover, Hansel and Gretel (2007) is helmed by two actors I adore: Chun Jung-myung and Shim Eun-kyung.
In his review, my friend X (aka MisterX aka His Grumpiness) gave the movie an 8.5 rating. Now, if you know X’s standards, you know that’s high praise indeed. According to him, Hansel and Gretel is “like a grotesque, abstract, somewhat absurd but stunningly beautiful little trip of imagination.” Wow, that description makes me want to pop the movie into the DVD player this very instant.
I bought three copies of Hansel and Gretel, one to keep and two to give away. It’s my little way of thanking you for reading my prattles. The DVD comes with the following special features (all with English subs!):

I can’t wait to send the movie to the TWO winners that my guest judge will help me pick. Thanks (in advance) for taking part!
