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.

Ahhhhhhh every day I wake up just a little bit more apathetic and disgusted about humanity. Between Occupy Wall Street and the Internet Censorship thing and No Basketball Anymore, this country is a fucking mess and there's really no way out.Which leads me to:

Brett and I went to see In Time last night. We were the only people in the theater so I legit spent a good three minutes saying BOMERRRRRRRRRRRR YOU'RE SO PRETTY out loud. And he was definitely a big reason why I paid money to see it, but the plot was also of great interest to me. I've heard some pretty negative things about it, but beyond some technical issues with the plot, I really quite enjoyed it. It reminds me a lot of a fusion of Equilibrium and The Hunger Games? Equilibrium due to the color pallet and left-fieldedness of the plot concept, and The Hunger Games in that 'society breaking down and people fighting back' kind of immediacy. Bomer's character was the most interesting to me in the movie, pretty bummed we don't get more of his backstory. And I'm forever amazed that Justin Timberlake can actually carry a movie and act decently. I'd probably be a JT stan if I liked his music, ngl. (definitely said HE'S SO ATTRACTIVE several times out loud as well.) My only real problem with the movie was the ending, it was too...eh, upbeat, cliche, 'let's do a sequel'-esque for the rest of the movie.

Brett and I also watched Sons of Anarchy last night.

+ bet you didn't see this one coming, heh.
--->new layout<---


+ small friends cut. sorry. mostly people i felt i no longer connected to, those i couldn't recall talking to in awhile, or journals not recently used.


+ related, i apologize for not being around a lot lately. i've been spending a lot of time on tumblr lately, otherwise i'm probably watching queer as folk or one of the seven million other shows i'm trying to watch. you can always get ahold of me via twitter or by PM'ing me, if you have the need.


+ i hope everyone has a fantastic valentine's day, whether it's with some actual person you love or a marathon of that fictional tv character you can't live without. brett has the flu + he's getting the stitches in his chest out on that day, so i will probably be doing the latter. (actually i really hate valentine's day. it's a dumb holiday, if you love someone you don't need a special day to show it and if you don't have anyone it just makes you feel shitty.) just...have a good monday, february 14th.
alwaysenduphere: (.supernatural/i win so i win)
I have all but one achievement in Plants vs. Zombies, be jealoussssss. Of course the one left is to survive 40 rounds of zombies on endless, so that'll take some time.

Brett and I watched Public Enemies after Supernatural last night. That movie...I'm angry at it. Dillinger is such a cool character to tell a story about, and they just...failed at it. I mean, it was pretty and it was filmed well, but the script SUCKED. I didn't care about any of the characters, wasn't even really introduced to most of them, had no emotional connection with anyone other than Billie and Johnny and even then not so much. Not to mention just the coherency of the story was incredibly jumbled. Had I not already known the story I would've been quite lost, much like Brett was. So yeah, cool idea, bad execution. I did enjoy going HEY THAT'S CROWN POINT. HEY THAT'S MOORESVILLE when I recognized things, though.

I debated whether to even mention Supernatural, but I have to.

onward to my opinion in which I try to be positive but slightly fail )
alwaysenduphere: (j2//Waaaaay too early)

The way Jared and Jensen talked about the show, the passion they have for their characters and for the craft of acting. The way they seemed to genuinely like us who support the show, I don't know it just made something click ... It's not about who is engaged to who, it's not about the show turning out exactly as we each individually have dreamt, it's not about the gossip, the rumors, its not about any of that. It's about loving a show that we all watch and watching a show that we all love. It's about these two boys who, god dammit, put everything into each and every scene, working hard with a collective group of talented people to produce something we all adore.
from [livejournal.com profile] shannon_doll here


I saw this and just had to share because it's such a perfect description of what fandom SHOULD be and what it WAS during the convention, not what it has become lately.

In other news, I feel like I'm never gonna catch up on everything I've missed. Including sleep. I haven't seen Glee or V or Castle, and I barely managed to squeeze in Supernatural (which I didn't really like...).

The good news is that remission is the word of the day as far as Brett's concerned, and I actually have the chance to go job-hunting now. Whee.

So anyway. TELL ME WHAT I'VE MISSED POINT ME TO THE BEST PICTURES OF THE CONVENTION SO I CAN SEE IT ALL AGAIN. I've been posting the ones I really love to my tumblr, but like a dumbass haven't actually been saving them to my hardrive. OH WELL. Also I'm never getting caught up on comments, it's inevitable as there's like 70 in my inbox and growing, so it's not that I don't love you enough to respond, it's just that I love having feeling in my wrists more. :)

In the order in which I viewed them (F13, Dollhouse, Heroes, Battlestar Galactica, Lost, if the cut text isn't clear), with (hopefully) plenty of spoiler space in between, just in case.


the one with the dude in the mask )

the one with the chick who'd be a good sex slave )


the one that always has me sitting on the edge of the couch hoping adama doesn't die )


the one where my favorite character has cool eyebrows )



the show that jj abrahms knew would eat people's brains when he created it )


...I think that's everything. Phew. I could never be one of those people to write reviews on all the shows I watch every week. I don't know how you people do it! So much information to type out, and I always feel like there's MORE I want to say but just can't process enough to type out.

I wish there was a Supernatural review to go along with this. Sadface. 'specially after the spoilers I read today.
