So I saw both The Amazing Spider-man and The Dark Knight Rises this week.

I liked Spider-man better.

I'm not even a fan of Peter Parker like, at all but Andrew Garfield IS SO PRECIOUS and augh he can act and his sad face made my face sad and Emma Stone is amazing (though a bit wasted in the first half of the movie) and THEY ARE SO PERFECT TOGETHER AUGHHH. The movie had some flaws like Peter Parker is pretty stupid with revealing his identity but I was always engaged and I really enjoyed it from start to finish. (Brett had a lot of problems but fuck him he always tears apart the things I enjoy.)
eta: also, Stan Lee's cameo in this one I WAS FUCKING SCREAMING normally I'm just like "oh look, Stan Lee" I WAS LAUGHING MY ASS OUT OF MY CHAIR OH MY GOD.

Batman, on the other hand...we both agreed was far too long, among other things.

Especially considering the first and second acts were pretty much the same. "Oh, Bruce Wayne's getting back on the Batman horse despite all physical handicaps that say he shouldn't, okay. OH Bane breaks his back and sends him to no man's land and then...Bruce Wayne's getting back on the Batman horse despite all physical handicaps that say he shouldn't. LIKE, WHAT. REALLY. At least a half hour of that could've been cut out.

Bane was amazing, my god the muscles on Tom Hardy and I really didn't mind his Sean Connery impression. Someone give Anne Hathaway her own Catwoman movie I loved every minute she was on screen. The reveal of Talia was a complete surprise because we'd forgotten about her completely (though I did suspect that character of being evil the moment Bruce slept with her. Which, also, kind of random, as he'd just been talking to Alfred about how he couldn't move on from Rachel.) Also, MICHAEL FUCKING CAINE. I kinda felt like they misues Alfred a bit and ALL THIS FUCKING MONOLOGING UGH but at the same time, my god I could listen to Michael Caine berate Bruce Wayne until the end of time. #ACTING /BLINKYTEXT

The last half hour was pretty dynamically amazing too, I was definitely entranced but it didn't make up for the number of times I looked at the time on my phone throughout the middle. SURPRISE CILLIAN MURPHY! SURPRISE TALIA. SURPRISE TOM HARDY FLASHBACK WITHOUT THE MASK. And the end, man I fucking loved JGL and all but "You should use your given name, Robin" was THE WORST LINE OF DIALOGUE EVER. I'm okay with him being Robin (even if we won't actually get to see it on screen WHICH IS TRAGIC) but that line of dialogue is THE WORST. Why couldn't it have been more subtle? Who cares if not everyone gets a "Here you go, Mr. Drake" reference that's what the internet is for goddamnit. Ugh.

And then the enddddd Alfred seeing them at the cafe and his faaaace and then he gets up and walks away just like he said he would THAT WAS PERFECT.

But yeah overall I wasn't actually all that fond of that movie.


Related, I've been consuming comics like nobody's business, as I'm sure have a lot of you since Avengers. I'm really not a comics reader; my medium is words not visual, I've never really been able to connect with pictures, and I still slog my way through comics feeling a little bit lost at all times, as far as panel to panel to dialogue to page, and I haaaaate how the art style changes all the time. But I do love the stories. I'm in the middle of Avengers Dissembled right now, reading completely out of order. I've read Infinity Gauntlet (THANOS!!) and Demon in a Bottle (TONY LOOKS LIKE A PORN STAR) and I'm in the middle of Ultimates 2 (which I'm actually enjoying despite everyone hating it and all the characters being rather douche-y). I actually read and finished Civil War first, which WHY DID I DO THAT TO MYSELF WHYYYY but I have all the Steve/Tony feels because of it (specifically THIS, from Casualties of War) so I suppose in that way I done did good and I'm glad I read it first, because I don't think I would've have ever started shipping them without it and now THEY'RE ALL I THINK ABOUT. You know how Winchesters used to be all-consuming? WELL NOW IT'S SUPERHUSBANDS. lol fml.

Um what else idk I don't do much with my life anymore.

OH EVERYONE SHOULD BE WATCHING POLITICAL ANIMALS THANK YOU THAT IS ALL.

in related news ugh i have been trying to write for like two hours and i've got like 200 words this is awful.

Augh if you're looking for a Supernatural/Avengers crossover, you should maybe read this one. And yes, I too find it amusing that the first Avengers fic I choose to rec in my journal is Clint/Coulson, a pairing that I don't care for all that much.

Basically, Clint makes a crossroads deal to get Coulson back; Clint goes to hell; Coulson moves heaven and earth to get him back. Or, how Sam and Dean would be super horrified that there are two more people in the world just as fucked up as they. It's horrific and angsty and ughh Coulson is perfect and Crowley is Crowley and Thor has some badass niece and aughhh I just love fic concerning hell I should probably see a shrink about that or something.

(Happy ending is included.)

Title: Follow You Into The Dark
Author: [livejournal.com profile] misachan
Characters/Pairings: Coulson/Clint/Natasha, Crowley, Fury, Hela
Rating: R
Warnings: Character death, depictions of torture, disturbing imagery and general hell unpleasantness.
Word Count: 13778
Spoilers: Post-movie for Avengers/Vague season 6 references for Supernatural
Summary: On a cold, windy night Clint Barton goes to a crossroad to wipe some red from his ledger.

Excerpt:
"How're we going to find him?" he said, half hoping Natasha actually had an idea and half just to hear a voice that wasn't moaning in agony. "We need a plan. We're wasting too much time, this place is endless. Maybe we should climb up somewhere to get a better look."

For a second Coulson thought she hadn't heard him, then she stopped short, swearing softly under her breath in Russian as she sprinted to the right. Coulson rushed after her and found her looking down into a crevasse they'd passed earlier. "No," she said, and when he stepped next to her he could feel how hard she was shaking. "We should climb down."

The sense of that hit Coulson like a truck. Of course they would have to go down. Clint loved being up above everyone else; he lived for the high ground, for the ability to take in a situation in one sweeping glance.

Of course Clint Barton's hell would include not being able to see the sky.


I should really remember to rec more things more often. Hrm. I did set up a shiny new pinboard account for my shiny new fandom. All Avengers fic is there. Other stuff still goes to delicious, for now.

So Rock of Ages was fantastic.*

Disclaimer: It should be noted that:
A) Anything with Don't Stop Believin' involved generally means I'll enjoy it.
B) I am absolutely the target audience this movie was made for. At least four of my favorite movies are movie musicals. (Newsies, Rent, Moulin Rouge, Across the Universe) and
C) I was already a fan of the stage production soooo.


Basically, it's a cliche predictable plot with mediocre acting and uneven vocal talent, buuuuuut it's also a mindless non-stop sing-along of great hits and funny dialogue.



The movie was slow to start off and I was totally uninterested in Julianne Hough's character because GIVE ME TOM CRUISE so yeah, there was that. Also her voice didn't really impress me in the slightest until at least halfway through the movie but goddaaaamn I would kill for her legs.

The other main character dude, Drew, was...eh. Basically I didn't really care for the 'main couple' (Cliche Coyote Ugly-type story and she didn't sound like she was from Oklahoma and his face just kind of bothered me though his voice was decent) until pretty much the scene before the credits, when Stacee Jaxx notices them singing for the first time and then it flashes forward to the two of them performing Don't Stop Believin' on stage with him. BIG FINISH WAS GOOD. (Also, Julianne's legs and Tom Cruise's body. Umph.)

BUT SERIOUSLY TOM CRUISE. I'd read reviews where people didn't think his voice was very good but I didn't really see that at all? Like, he didn't necessarily have THE ROCKER voice but he has a voice and oh lord does he have the personna to go with it. I really don't think anyone else could pull of Stacee Jaxx quite like Tom Cruise could. Also I literally could not stop staring at his fucking chest for pretty much every scene he was in. I'm not sure I've ever found him terribly attractive but GODDAMN. I was in lust from the moment he started singing Wanted: Dead or Alive to Malin Akerman (who in a shocking turn of events, can sing. And also has lovely legs. But still can't really act that great.) Frankly I just wanted a whole movie of Stacee Jaxx.

I MEAN COME ONNNNNNNNN.


Also of note is Catherine Zeta-Jones. Her performance of Hit Me With Your Best Shot in between church pews was something never knew I needed in my life. Also she's hilarious and I love her rocker get-up when she rejoins the audience at the end of the movie.

Um Um, the best part I think is Russell Brand and Alec Baldwin's broromance. THEY SING REO TO EACH OTHER AND THEN KISS oh man and Russell was actually really funny and Alec Baldwin was...kinda pretty much himself. Also I guess I knew that he sang but they actually sounded good together and augh. I just had a really good time watching this movie and it put me in a really good mood. I'd probably never pay money to see it again, but I'll buy it on DVD when it comes out just so I can watch the song performances again.

I think I've mentioned several times how my mother is that movie goer you want to throw popcorn at. Not only does she talk LOUDLY throughout the whole movie, she asks questions and makes guesses on what's going to happen next and "who's that actor?", instead of just WATCHING the fucking thing. She also tends to jump and scream and gasp and say things like 'HOLY SHIT!' in a crowded theater. Basically, going to see an action movie with her is a waste of time and money. So only upon a sixth viewing was I willing to see Avengers with her, though I've been trying to get her to go see it for the past month. I didn't realize she hadn't seen Captain America and Thor, though, so guess who was answering a whoole lotta questions? :||||| I felt really bad for the one other person in the theater; I hope he was having a rewatch, too.

- Number of times my mother ACTUALLY flailed: twice.
- Number of times she commented on Hemsworth's attractiveness: 3. (including a comment in the credits of "I wanna be Mr. Hemsworth's assistent yes please. That voice, those EYES.")
- Number of comments on Chris Evans attractiveness: 1+. (a literal "How is he real?!" and several comments on whether or not his hair was a wig.)
- Number of times I had to tell her Hawkeye was the Barton they were referring to: 2. (ARGHHHHHH)
- Number of times she gasped at something Tony Stark said or did: a;lska;sldkhf the number is too high for counting.



"Burdened with glorious purpose" never stops being funny. That and every time Hemsworth says "together" I just want to swoon. "We were raised TOGETHAH, we played TOGETHAHHHHH, we fought TOGETHAHHHHHH."

Bruce's line when he's first with Natasha, "I don't every time get what I want." I like it and I don't know why, though it could just be the word choice.

Pretty sure I can dress up as off-duty Natasha for Halloween this year, I have a red shirt and a black jacket and boots. I'd have to find a holster though. And convince Brett to dress up as Cap again. And find some Halloween party to actually go to. Ugh fuck life nevermind.

Loki and dat scarfff hnnng. Honestly the only scene in which I enjoy Loki, ngl. (Avengers fandom: I'm doing it wrong.) Oh, my mother commented on how Hiddles had 'an adorable smile' in that scene, as well.

I love the character of Natasha and everything about her, but gawd all her lines really do come out kind of clunky after awhile. Like, "red in my ledger" HOW MANY TIMES CAN YOU SAY THE SAME THING? "I've been compromised" is also on notice, especially when she says it to Clint. There's no reason that he doesn't already know these things, I don't know why she has to reiterate to him in the same clunky dialogue she used with Loki. Also, I don't think Clint's actually asking her if she knows what it feels like to be unmade. I think it's a statement and he's looking for confirmation that what he's feeling is what he should be feeling, remorse and confusion and relief that he can find himself again, whoever that was before Loki.

Whoever started that "it's the Hulk in Bruce's reflection" bit on Tumblr is smoking the bad stuff. It's most definitely not Hulk in Bruce's reflection; you can see Bruce's glasses the entire time. Hulk no wear glasses.

I still get chills at the motherfucking assemble scene where the camera circles them all looking badass, and aughh my favorite part is most definitely still the long shot the follows Iron Man over to Cap and Tasha, then up to Hawkeye and then follows Hawkeye's arrow over to Thor and Hulk taking down a squadron.

Basically, TEAMWORK MOTHERFUCKERS.


In related news, I've watched Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow and Ultimate Avengers: The Movie and its sequel off Netflix last night. I actually really enjoyed the Ultimates movies with one shining exception: FUCKING HANK PYM. He is the most annoying and useless character EVER. And in the Next Avengers movie, his KID is the most annoying and useless character EVER. Ugh. Take your wife-abusing, annoying egotistical ass somewhere else.

I also watched Lost in Translation, which, why it only has one star rating on Netflix I don't know. I mean, okay, it's pretty bland and there's not much of a plot and I figured going in that I'd like it because it's one of those 'life is stagnant, trying to find a way' type movies that really hit home with me right now, and also Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson, but I really enjoyed it. A lot of the positive reviews say to understand the movie, you must understand what traveling long distances feels like, and perhaps that's true, but also I think all you need to enjoy it is knowing what it feels like to be somewhere you thought you wanted to be but you really don't, and figuring out how to keep going anyway. Also it gave me a sense of Toyko and how I never ever want to go there.

I...I think Supernatural and I might just be done professionally. IDK. I'll probably still end up watching I can't escape the fucker, but eh. I LIKED season seven, I DEFENDED season seven, and then...you give me that finale. Words cannot express my UGH.

So.



I think I've seen it..three times since the last post about it. Whoops?

JUST...ALL MY CLINT/NATASHA FEELS (FUCKING BUDAPEST and ugh i know what happens to them in the comics and I LIKE THE MOVIE VERSION BETTER THANK YOU VERY MUCH and renner's fucking face and scarlett's fucking body and ugh tasha is so so fucking complex and clint really is so fucking tragic and it's amazing how little we get of him in the movie while still getting EXACTLY who he is - all about his duty and loyalty and his fucking line of sight while still having that sense of jovial amusement and ughhh the two of them togetherrrr /word vomit)

and frankly, all my Bruce/Tony feels too. I can honestly say I have never ever ever cared or enjoyed Hulk in my life but fucking Mark Ruffalo interacting with RDJ'S face is a thing I want never to leave my life now. I JUST CAN'T. Like, I still don't care about Hulk but TONY CARES AND BASICALLY ALL MY TONY STARK FEELS HE IS STILL ONE OF THE BEST PARTS OF THE MOVIE I DON'T EVEN CARE and look, it's probably partially nostalgia because before Iron Man came out the only Marvel characters I even knew about were X-Men and now like, I have spent hours learning about these characters and suddenly overnight my boyfriend is complaining that he's not the comics expert anymore and ughhh these fucking actors and their fucking faces and that fucking movie.


Also new layout new default icon new wallpaper, etc etc etc.


(okay but really if i'm contemplating writing a fic where natasha and clint are secretly demons would you judge me? my answer to every new fandom i court is 'ship it with supernatural' I CANNOT GET THAT FUCKING SHOW OUT OF MY VEINS. i guess in a way i've never left buffy behind, so. HOW YOU DO NEW FANDOMS?? sigh. this is what i'm stuck with. alas.

I have so many things I kinda want to post about (like, can we talk about how awesome Felicia Day is or how Misha can act on camera or how the brakes on my car are going out on top of everything else broken on it or how I'm going to see the Avengers with my boyfriend's dad on Sunday or how I joined a gym for a ridiculous amount of money or or or)

But really I just want to ask:

Does anyone play/or have played Magic: The Gathering and does anyone want to give me any cards?!
*puppy eyes*

I am but a poor employee of a college (who only works 6 days this month!!!) and I NEEEED MORE CATS AND DOGS FOR MY NEW DECK. (I also need more black mana for my black/green deck, Creatures Shouldn't Play with Dead Things :DDD)

I saw Cabin in the Woods on Sunday. While I am not a fan of horror movies and it did not serve to make me a fan, nor was it supposed to, I absolutely loved it. Typical Joss in that equally horrifying and hilarious script. Also Fran Kranz!

ok not that many spoilers but the board with all the creatures? ANGRY MOLESTING TREES!!! And then they popped out of the elevator and I WAS HAPPY. Also the unicorn killing was hilarious but then I said "But it doesn't shoot rainbows out of its ass" and the people behind us chuckled. There weren't very many people in the theater with us but there were points where we were all L O L ing in a loud and ridiculous manner. Especially at the Merman at the end.

Good times.


Am currently reading a book written by William Shatner about Star Trek conventions. Don't laugh, man, it's really good. I took it to work with me the other night, not thinking that I also happened to be wearing my Millenterprise Falcon tshirt and reading a book with Shatner's face on the cover. Felt like a huge dork.

The book's really good though, it talks about how Shatner didn't really understand conventions and why people go year after year, so he kind of went undercover in costume and asked(harassed) other con-goers for info. It talks about the very first Star Trek convention which, ngl, I got all teary-eyed reading about. It also mentions the first convention I ever went to, one of the 25 years of Trek/ Is Kirk really dead? cons that happened right after Star Trek Generations came out. And look, I was four, my parents dragged me to it and several more conventions before I actually GOT why it was so fun, I'll admit freely too, but it's really nice to read about why the celebrities go year after year, too, and it's not all for money (tho Bill freely admits it was at first.) Basically, I wish I could shove this book in the face of everyone's who's ever given me the stink eye when I've told them how many cons I've been to, Supernatural, Star Trek or otherwise.(i don't think I've been to any otherwise?) Then maybe they would understand.

Going to see The Hunger Games in a couple hours for a third time, with my mother. Should be interesting, as I'm sure she'll be asking me questions THE WHOLE TIME. I'll have to refrain from saying "bitch you read the damn book you figure it out." LOL. But seriously my mom is THE WORST person to go see an action movie with. Or any movie, really.

I saw Cabin in the Woods on Sunday. While I am not a fan of horror movies and it did not serve to make me a fan, nor was it supposed to, I absolutely loved it. Typical Joss in that equally horrifying and hilarious script. Also Fran Kranz!

ok not that many spoilers but the board with all the creatures? ANGRY MOLESTING TREES!!! And then they popped out of the elevator and I WAS HAPPY. Also the unicorn killing was hilarious but then I said "But it doesn't shoot rainbows out of its ass" and the people behind us chuckled. There weren't very many people in the theater with us but there were points where we were all L O L ing in a loud and ridiculous manner. Especially at the Merman at the end.

Good times.

Finished Mockinjay for a second time last night at work. It's a good thing it's Easter break or everyone still awake at 5am would've seen me fighting to keep the tears from forming a puddle on the desk.

The ending is still extremely unsatisfying and the whole book is just brutal in a way that a YA novel should probably not be, but I...(i don't want to say enjoyed because it is far too depressing for that)...don't find it as horrible as I did the first time I read it. I think I probably rushed it the first time because I tend to do that, and this time I read every word of Katniss' horrific PTSD, a fact that didn't really register the first time, either.

(trying out the spoiler text)


FINNICK OH FINNICK. I don't remember caring about you so much on round one, but oh lord your death is so wildly unsatisfactory I CAN'T EVEN. Two lines and ~his life flashes before Katniss' eyes~ and then he's not even mentioned again until the epilogue. Sigh. And now everyone's speculating on who will play him in the movies, and I'm not usually one to care about that sort of thing too much (matter of fact, I prefer having a face to put to a character as opposed to one I've made up myself, which I know is unusual.) but I don't want a face on Finnick. Like, no one will match up to him for me, I don't think. (Unless there's a male version of Jennifer Lawrence somewhere.) [livejournal.com profile] unreckless mentioned she pictured him as a early S1 Dean, and man, Jensen's wee face is probably the only face that I would accept freely at this point (though it makes thinking about Finnick's ridiculous death even worse DD:) but that ship has sailed with age, sooooo. Every name I've heard thrown out though is just...no.

Also, JOHANNA. I'd forgotten her and Katniss' Rocky training montage sort of thing and how she relapses, AND THEN WE NEVER SEE HER AGAIN. A lot of the fanfiction assumes she goes to 2 with Gale but that's not actually said? And ugh. There needs to be a short story companion to the series post-war but pre-epilogue, about characters other than Katniss, since her world is just a messy blur. I didn't even feel like her world was okay in the epilogue, or really that she even wanted those children, which is SO NOT A HAPPY ENDING goddamnit.

I feel like I'll start back at THG in a few weeks again just so I can have naive pre-war Katniss and not-crazy Peeta. THE CYCLE CONTINUES

aaagh and the movie no one will see with me. i went by myself because i wanted to see it THEN but i figured someone would want to see it again. brett keeps making up excuses (okay work keeps needing him BUT STILL he won't tell me his schedule) and my mom for sure keeps blowing me off and well. i don't have anybody else.

super bummed the director won't be back for the second movie. also steadily becoming one of those fans that CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT MOVIE!!1!!!!1! I've never been one of those fans and I. don't. like. it.

tl;dr THG has eaten my brain.

(Oh, and I now ship Katniss/Haymitch lord save us all. Fanfiction is the devil. come on thg fandom, write more!)

[This post is incredibly superficial but I couldn't even begin to articulate how pissed off I am at life right now.]

I'm trying to do this posting more often thing. Obviously by supplementing memes in a lot instead of real information. OH WELL.

Memes from [livejournal.com profile] lesson_in_love!

Tell me you want to play and I'll pick up to three of your fandoms. Then update your journal and answer the following questions:

1. What got you into this fandom in the first place?
2. Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
3. Favorite episodes/books/movies, etc?
4. Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
5. Do you think more people should get into this fandom?


Supernatural, Doctor Who, Queer as Folk )

1. Reply to this post with "I LOVE EVERYONE IN THIS MORALLY DEPRAVED BAR" and I will pick five (or maybe ten!) of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.


icons! )
