Iron Man 3 - 7/10

The plot was predictable. They could have pulled a Richard Brook with the Mandarin thing, but naaah. 7 only for the special effects.

Much more interested in Thor 2*, can't wait.


*especially Loki

It's not like Williams isn't a good composer, but comparing him to the maestro is like comparing a Johann Strauss to a Mozart. Just not the same level.

My top 3 for film/tv music is Ennio, Nino Rota and Murray Gold.

Les MisÚrables (2012) - 9/10

Much better than I expected. I'm a fan of both the book and the musical, so I squeed at every little "book" thing that came as a plus. And thank the gods, Russell Crowe can sing. He's not Philip Quast but he's good. It was by biggest corcern as I'm a Javert fan.

It's definitely worth watching, epic, dramatic and you will have feels. A lot of them.

Oscar for Hathaway!

Good Omens - still awesome.

Suddenly realized my headcanon Aziraphale is Martin Freeman. He's a ball of fluff but he can be dangerous.

Werner Herzog should be MUCH higher on the list. And where is Coppola, Lynch and Scorsese?

 Cry Must rewatch True Romance some time to remember him.

And if he choose a goddamn river, it's his right. Everybody can choose how he prefers to die. Especially when the alternative is dying slowly of illness.
Or what, is a gun "manlier" than jumping off a bridge? I know of someone who definitely had a gun (what with his profession) and still choose a bridge.

Well, it worked for him so far. Except the Doctor keeps cockblocking him.

What usually happens:

Jack meets someone: Hello, I'm Captain Jack Harkness...
The Doctor: STOP IT!
Jack: I was just saying hello...

But he is shown to have a lot of dates anyway. With basically any species he meets. Well, looking like this doesn't hurt:



Hey, he even got his own spinoff where he has sex with everyone fights aliens and dies about 4 times per episode.

The main flaw I see is not giving the supporting characters enough time. They look interesting, but we simply can't get attached to them, they are killed too fast. And they have potential. Bell is a nice guy, Sheriff Baker is someone I just want to hug, Alamosa Bill is someone I want to know more about. Who are the family of redheads, random Tullys on the West? And Billy's various friends everywhere, we know nothing about their past together. Everyone just seems to like him.

Why couldn't this be 3 hours long.

Seducing. I just can't type.

"Beans"  Grin

Was there any hidden symbolic meaning to that scene or Pat just felt like trolling?


By the way, there is also a Billy the Kid version from 1930, is that available ANYWHERE? I can find nothing. It's so old it must be in public domain...

The new series, if watched in order, explains things slowly. And new companions are not just damsels in distress, they save the Doctor many times. Then there is, of course, Captain Jack Harkness who is capable of secuding any life form or even robot.  Wink

And it's shorter than the '88 version. How is a *special edition* ever SHORTER than the original?

I love the scene with Garrett and his wife though. Adds some new layers to his loneliness.

Putting the two in one topic since the fandoms already crossover the hell out of them.

Doctor Who's new season is coming soon and it will have a western episode - can't wait for it!  Evil Although when did the Doctor begin to tolerate guns again I don't know.

I have watched all the new series by now and began the old episodes (which are hilarious). Honestly, I'm waiting for 11 to regenerate. Two seasons weren't enough to develop feeling towards him. He's too invincible and somehow can't deliver drama like 9 and 10 could. And bring the Master back.


As for Supernatural, I'm on season 4. I have a serious case of Castiel. (Wouldn't he be good for an Innocent Young Hero in a western? He has very expressive eyes. Give him a wise old mentor and let them kick ass.)

Of course. I only watched the 2005 one once and it was confusing. They cut a lot of good lines and there were only 2 new scenes. Couldn't they just put those in the Turner and leave it alone otherwise? (Ok, maybe cut the Poe scene where he beats up some dudes for information since the Ruthie Lee scene has the same function and honestly, I want to punch Poe in the face every time he's on screen. (Isn't he also one of the guys who eventually kill Pat?)

I wish they would make a real uncut version once. The footage exists, doesn't it?

Watched it again. Maybe 5th or 6th time? And it made me feel really melancholic and sad.  Cry Also, the more I watch it, the more I love Kristofferson's Billy.
