    05.11.09 - SPOCK!
    earlwyn: (st || SPOCK)
    Tonight I saw Star Trek and man oh man, I do not know what my cousin's problem was. (He was at the New York premier and when I asked him what he thought, he went, "Meh" like some sort of blind and deaf loser.) I mean, Spock! SPOCK. *epic flail-y arms*

    So confession time: Spock was my very first character crush ever. At age three, sitting on the floor in front of the tv with my dad in the background giving a running commentary on the episodes. I totally fell for the ears and the awesome logic-y know-how (though mostly the ears). Embarrassing but true!

    And then Spock in the movie: he had me at this one thing ) and then re-cemented my crush for good with the other thing ). Though the plotpoint with the whole whatever thing ) was (a) totally awesomely melodramtic and (b) made me want to give Spock a giant hug. I also really liked this one surprisingly not-Spock-related point ).

    Tomorrow I am seeing it again but with the IMAX Experience. Which will make it ten times better. Sitting front row center with the bass of explosion rattling the seat beneath me? Oh yeah. I need fic now.

    Funny movie-going anecdote: we were sitting in the front row (because I like the front row, not because the theatre was packed -- though it was! On a Monday night too!) and a group of guys came to sit next to us. One guy was questioning if his friend was okay with the seat choice, and his friend replied, "Oh yeah, man, this way I can feel like I'm actually going warp speed!" My people. ♥

    Someone needs to write me some Dick Hickock/Perry Smith fic from Infamous. Oh hi, Lee Pace.

    For the Netflixers on my f'list: I finally gave in to Netflix's free 14 day trial and made an account. (And this has nothing to do with Daniel Craig, okay? Nothing.*) I read over the directions and made a queue and depressed myself over the state of Netflix's indie flick section and then sat back to wait for the movies to start piling in.

    But, um. They're not. My queue has been sitting there un-touched for two days. Netflix isn't saying a word about when they might mail out the first film.

    Is this usual? Am I simply being impatient for my Daniel Craig fix movies and Netflix will get on it in a few more days? Did I secretly miss a step and there is a hold up that I could fix if only I knew what I was doing? I'm so confused!

    *It also has to do with obscure Daniel Day-Lewis films.

    So, this morning I watched Zodiac. (As in the fim. Not, like, I stared at the horoscope page on AOL for two hours.) Clearly, this has to do with my recent RDJ fixation; I'm not even going to pretend that it doesn't. Though in all fairness, the movie already was on my "To Watch" list. The RDJ fixation just bumped viewing it from "someday" to "okay, watch it rightnow".

    It was a good movie. If I had seen it in theaters like I had planned, I would not walk out wanting my money back.

    Don't mistake my language. This is actually a good review. Here's a Quick Guide to Kat's Movie Standards. Mediocre movies: I walk out wanting my money back. Bad films: I walk out wanting my two hours back. Horrible films: I injure myself during the two hours by hitting myself in the face over the stupidity. For further reference, see Indiana Jones. Decent films and above: I either a) don't require a refund or b) fall madly, obsessively in love with them. It really is an either-or situation with me.

    Then, after finishing the movie, I sighed to myself. What was missing now was the fic, especially the Paul/Robert slash (adorable!) and I highly doubted any had been written. Wrong! So gloriously wrong. Never doubt the Ways of Fandom. There are actually two very good fics out there. I encourage you to read them.
    i. Something Blue by [livejournal.com profile] jamaillith | Paul/Robert | PG-13
    Robert's bachelor party, which is mostly him getting extremely drunk with Paul.

    ii. Longing for Simplicity by [livejournal.com profile] veiledndarkness | Paul/Robert | PG | Double drabble
    What he needs the most.

    The Internet Gods, they are good to me. After all, who could resist Robert Downey, Jr. and Jake Gyllenhall?

    I saw Sweeney Todd  last night. I still need to see it a few more times to cement a thorough response, as I was half-asleep sitting in the theater at one in the morning.

    I still haven't decided if I like it or not. It's amusing, definitely, and there are many parts I adore. There's a conflict in my mind, though, between love of the original musical and love of Tim Burton-Johnny Depp films. A resolution demands more viewing!

    I did find this, though, and I found it amusing. Tim and Johnny interview each other on moviefone. Watch them be awkward and adorable. Though mostly awkward.
