You are cool and collected

So it seems it’s personality test time again!

You Have a Phlegmatic Temperament
Mild mannered and laid back, you take life at a slow pace.
You are very consistent – both in emotions and actions.
You tend to absorb set backs easily. You are cool and collected.
It is difficult to offend you. You can remain composed and unemotional.
You are a great friend and lover. You don’t demand much of others.
While you are quiet, you have a subtle wit that your friends know well.
At your worst, you are lazy and unwilling to work at anything.
You often get stuck in a rut, without aspirations or dreams.
You can get too dependent on others, setting yourself up for abandonment.

All true, except the bit that says: “You don’t demand much of others.”

I’m happy with the result of this test, just because it says “You are cool and collected” ;)

Walk the Line (2005)

Max advised me to go see “Walk the line“; he’d heard it was very good. Now I can tell him to go!

I didn’t really know Johnny Cash except a few enjoyable songs given by Amy (thanks!). I knew nothing of Johnny Cash and I had never even heard of June Carter (isn’t that some poor culture?)
It was a fantastic movie. The performance of the actors was simply amazing. I was totally mesmerized by Joaquin Phoenix whom I had seen only in Gladiator. I couldn’t get my eyes off of him. Reese Witherspoon was perfect. I totally forgot she had been Legally Blond in a former life.

And at the end of the movie, I was pretty sad it was over (the movie lasts 2 hours and fifteen minutes), and while reading the credits, I was bewildered when I saw Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon had performed the songs themselves. Incredibly good performance. I need the DVD and the soundtrack now :)

Also, I want to know more about their lives, more than what I learned from the movie that is based on the auto-biography of Johnny Cash.
