Dear Wincest fans, kindly go away, no love, Me.
I am so taking that comm off my flist. It's not that I'm against slash because, yo, obviously not but bloody hell. You're talking about two brothers. This is not at all close to kosher. AND I'M NOT JEWISH. I'd have taken myself off the numb3rs fic comm if there wasn't decent gen fic on there, but thankfully there is. Look, I know some of my flist likes to read this stuff, which, ok, fine. I'm not going to outcast people for it. It's just that I'm making a very vocal decision to not read it. Or not be subjected to it. So if you decide that it's not cool to be flisted with someone who doesn't like your part of fandom, I won't take it personally. Just understand that I don't really care what you're into as long as I don't have to be into it too. Did that make any sense? Whatever. No incest.
Now that's off my chest, I have a disgusting confession to make. David Caruso? Fairly amusing, not to mention watchable in Proof of Life. Yeh. Knock me down with a freakin' feather, because when the fuck did that happen? It must be the end of the world if I actually like Caruso in a role ever. (Wow, this seems to be my day for pissing people off. Again, I know there are flisters out there who like the guy. Again, whatever. This is not a personal jibe aimed at you dontletthecrazieskillmekthnxbai). Also, I now so want to write fic for that film. Which, by the way, was more watchable than Armageddon. LIV TYLER CANNOT ACT. What the hell was that? That was awful. And I saw at least 6 scenes that were complete rips from Independence Day which was way funnier. Although, the Russian pleased me.
Totally the plan is to watch Kill Bill (both volumes) but the other day, I swapped out one of my copies of The Interpreter for Cold Mountain so I might just end up watching that instead. Oh, The Interpreter? Bloody good film. Bloody brilliant. That's what you want from a movie. And Snatch is a film everyone ever should watch. Brad Pitt's turn as 'The Pikey' is one of his best performances ever and every one should worship at the feet of the brilliant Jason Statham ("What are you waiting for, 'zee' Germans?!")
We also went to see Harry Potter the other night. Dad took us. He actually liked it. I liked it; it was engaging. I thought the first half was very, very choppy but then Rowling wrote the damn thing that way, so what do you expect? I thought the ball scene was well done, and that Grint is a much better performer than Radcliffe (what's new?) but overall, I hae to wonder if they can do the politics of the fifth book much justice or if they're just going to skip over that stuff for the visuals. They did a good job with the fourth book but GoF is pretty action packed anyway. They just cut out all the BS that made it such an awful read. And is it me or do the film directors really play up the interaction between HP and Hr? Bloody hell. It's called canon, jeebus! Whatever. Pretty film. (What? Don't look at me like that. I'm allowed to be shallow too).
So, what next? King Kong, I think. But I want them to hurry up and show Good Night & Good Luck and Memoirs of a Geisha (love!) SORT YOUR SHIT OUT, Y'ALL. Is it realy that hard to show a good movie every now and then? Actually, they were showing Chicago last night except because I'd already seen it, I was bloody vetoed and had to watch Armageddon. Not pleased.
